Summary

Christmas time in 1930s New York. After escaping through the chimney of an orphanage in Hell's Kitchen, Richard Blakemore a.k.a. the masked crimefighter known only as the Silencer is mistaken for Santa Claus by one of the children and learns that the orphanage is under siege by both a gang of brutal racketeers and an unscrupulous landlord. 
Richard vows to help the children and their guardians. However, it turns out that the attacks on the orphanage are only part of a much larger plot, when Richard's quest for justice leads him into the upper echelons of Manhattan's high society. 
Soon, the Silencer finds himself face to face with one of the most powerful men in the city, while Richard and Constance struggle to save the orphanage and give the children of Hell's Kitchen an unforgettable Christmas. 
This is a novella of 30000 words or approximately 100 pages in the Silencer series, but may be read as a standalone.

    ***From award-winning, USA Today bestselling author Toby Neal, whose writing Kirkus Reviews calls “persistently riveting,” comes the Lei Crime Series! *** 
     
    Twisted Vine (5), Shattered Palms (6), Dark Lava (7) and Fire Beach (8), the AWARD-WINNING next four books of the Lei Crime Series, are put together into a one-volume immersive reading experience that will take you to Hawaii and the world of fast-paced mysteries solved by multicultural detective Lei Texeira. No one can read just one!  
    “Toby Neal is one of my favorite authors and the Lei Crime Series is awesome! A good book is always about the characters, and Toby's characters have become my friends. They are flawed, have depth, and evolve beautifully over the series, and her mysteries are complex and compelling. So many books that use Hawaii as a setting are obnoxious, but Toby, raised here in the Islands, "gets” the true culture. Some series lose steam over time, but the Lei Crime Series keeps getting stronger with each book. Good thing the author is so prolific because I’m always impatient for the next one!” ~Kim, Amazon Reviewer

    Louise de Bernard’s long-ago past in Nazi-occupied France comes back to haunt her when a woman shows up on her doorstep demanding payback    On a tranquil tree-lined street in Paris, a woman exits a taxi. She has come from Bonn, Germany, on a mission of desperation and revenge. And in a house on the Rue de Varenne, a wife and mother is about to relive the past she thought she’d left far behind.   In 1944, in Nazi-occupied France, circumstances forced Jean de Bernard and his wife to put up a German officer at their isolated chateau in St. Blaize. The American-born Louise de Bernard despised Major Heinz Minden—and her husband even more for collaborating with the Germans when their tanks first rumbled through their centuries-old village. Into this seething hotbed of betrayal and brutality, Roger Savage arrives. The undercover Allied agent recruits Louise to help him destroy a lethal nerve gas the Germans are secretly manufacturing nearby. But now a high-ranking Nazi general is dead, and an entire village is about to be punished in the most merciless and horrifying way.   Culminating in post-war Germany as an SS officer prepares to stand trial for wartime atrocities, Stranger at the Gates is a spine-tingling page-turner about family and sacrifice, loyalty and love, and how ordinary people can become heroes.

    “Andrew Kaplan represents a gold standard for thriller writing.”—David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of The Brotherhood of the Rose 
    Espionage fiction is hotter than ever, as evidenced by the phenomenal success of Daniel Silva, Alex Berenson, and Ted Bell—and Andrew Kaplan plays the spy game as well as anyone out there. Following his stunning thriller, Scorpion Betrayal (which superstar author Harlan Coben called, “one of the smartest, swiftest and most compelling spy novels I’ve read in years”),  Kaplan plunges his tough, code-named intelligence operative into the dangerous fray once more in Scorpion Winter. The ex-CIA agent-turned-freelance spy is on assignment in Russia, disturbing a hornet’s nest of assassination and political intrigue that could erupt in all-out global war in this electrifying espionage thriller that will enthrall Robert Ludlum, Brad Thor, and Vince Flynn fans.
