Summary

Since 1908, when an object from space exploded over Siberia and caused the Tunguska blast, that same region has been the frequent site of multiple space object impacts. And yet, very little research has been done on the objects or the blasts. 
In 2030, a Russian miner discovers something in a coal mine beneath the location of the 1947 Sikhote Alinsk explosion in Siberia. What at first was thought to be an unexploded WWII bomb is revealed to be something else entirely. The Russians shut the site down, conduct a massive military buildup, and launch some cover story about a mining accident. 
American scientist Anita Raymie isn't buying it. She and her handsome boss, CIA agent Gary Dannon, and their US government team of scientists are ordered to investigate. The White House very much wants to know what the Russians are doing. 
As Anita and her team study surveillance and satellite data from the mine area, she discovers an eyewitness to the Sikhote Alinsk event, Russian defector Michael Antelov, who is still alive and living in America. She meets him and learns what he saw in 1947, and this leads to Anita presenting her findings to the U.S. president and secretary of defense. 
In the midst of all these developments, Anita and Gary are forced to acknowledge romantic feelings for one another. But that will have to wait, because the team finds that the Russians are hiding an object that is definitely not a World War 2 bomb. Russian archeologists and scientists study the find and discover that it is an object not from earth. It's a suspended animation case that is keeping its alien occupant alive.

    The New York Times–bestselling author of The Undead continues the nail-biting story of a reluctant vampire fighting to save what’s left of his humanity.   Once a surgeon, Michael Bowman is now working the night shift at a convenience store in Dallas, a job with perfect hours for a vampire. After being turned by his friend Adam four months ago, he has struggled with his hunger, sometimes killing to satisfy his endless needs. His already thin bond with his wife, a homicide detective, is starting to fray. And Adam—enslaved by his evil, bloodsucking master—has become nothing more than a vicious pet.   At his wit’s end, Mike is approached by the Society, a group of “civilized” vampires, who promise him a life without killing—and help in saving Adam and himself from the monster bent on destroying his own bloodline. But it soon becomes clear to Mike that the Society is not what it seems. And what promises to be a refuge is in fact a cage that is closing in around him . . .  Praise for The Undead   “Fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary . . . a five-star winner. I couldn’t put it down and didn’t want it to end. Absolutely, do NOT let this one get away!” —P. N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories   “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [a] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles.NET
