Summary

Rock breaks scissors. Scissors cut paper. Paper covers rock. The rules are simple—except when it’s people’s lives at stake. 
  
By the time Charlotte and Patrick Ballard discover the damage their daughter, Lizzy, can do with her mind, it’s already too late for Charlotte. They hide Lizzy away, trying to save others from the same fate, and trying to save Lizzy from life as a human lab rat. But they can’t hide her forever. 
  
Little do they know that respected Philadelphia businessman Gerard Bonnay is responsible for Lizzy’s ability. And Bonnay is willing to eliminate anyone who gets in the way of his goal of turning that power to his own ends. 
  
As her protectors are picked off one by one, will Lizzy be able to escape from Gerard Bonnay’s deadly zero-sum game? 
 
“Lizzy Ballard is a special young woman. She's smart, unassuming, and beloved by all who know her. Unless you make her angry. Not since Carrie have we seen a character excite such fear in those forced to learn her terrible secret the hard way. Some want to control her. Others want to kill her. Lizzy is determined to be free, but it will come at a terrible price. Fingers crossed 'Rock Paper Scissors' is the first title of another engrossing Matty Dalrymple series." 
Robert Blake Whitehill, Award-winning screenwriter and author of The Ben Blackshaw Series 
“With Rock Paper Scissors, Matty Dalrymple has created her own brand of riveting paranormal suspense. A bubbling zinger that grabs you on the first page and doesn't let go even at the end, when it leaves you wanting to take the main characters home, or to follow them to their next date with suspense.” 
Merry Jones, Author of the Elle Harrison, Harper Jennings, and Zoe Hayes thrillers 
“A fresh new character is on the thriller scene with frightening powers that even she can’t control. Not since Stephen King’s 'Firestarter' has someone like Lizzy Ballard come along, a young woman who fears herself even more than she fears others. Briskly paced and darkly imagined, Dalrymple’s thriller keeps readers turning the pages—with menace around every corner.” 
Suzanne Chazin, Author of the Jimmy Vega mystery series

    Ex-cop Jack Taylor, with all his rogue poetic charm and Jameson-fueled riffs on pop culture, is one of the most iconic characters in crime fiction. This series has a devoted readership, with fans including critics like Adam Woog (Seattle Times) and David J. Montgomery (Strand Magazine).
    
    
    
    In 2016, Ken Bruen was awarded the iBAM! (Irish Books, Arts, and Music) Literature Award, presented in Chicago. His most recent book, The Emerald Lie, received a rave from Marilyn Stasio at the New York Times Book Review: “Nobody writes like Ken Bruen.” 
    
    
    
    The Ghosts of Galway brings the storyline of the charismatically destructive and chameleon-like young woman first introduced in Green Hell, Emily (a.k.a. Em, Emerald), to an explosive climax. The novel compellingly plays on the dark side of religion—a favorite motif of Bruen’s work.  
    
    
    
    The first Jack Taylor novel, The Guards, Bookscans over 17,000 in paperback, was shortlisted for the Edgar, Barry, and Macavity awards, and won the Shamus Award for Best Novel. The fifth book, Priest, was also a finalist for the Edgar and Barry awards. 
    
    
    
    The Jack Taylor series has been adapted for TV, in a 9-part series starring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones) and which is available on Netflix. Two Bruen novels have also been made into feature films: London Boulevard (starring Colin Farrell) and Blitz (starring Jason Statham).

    “The plot of an Alafair Burke thriller doesn’t just rip from the headlines. She’s one step ahead of them. 212 scares you and keeps you turning the pages into the wee hours.” —Harlan Coben  
    “Burke has created a strong female protagonist in the tradition of Sara Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski and Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone.… Utterly authentic.” —Boston Globe  
    212 is acclaimed author—and former deputy district attorney—Alafair Burke’s gripping thriller featuring hip, Manhattan-based detective Ellie Hatcher. Fans of Lisa Gardner, Sandra Brown, Karin Slaughter, Harlan Coben, Sue Grafton, and PJ Tracy will find it hard to put 212 down until the very last page.

    Seven Bengal tigers are the star attraction of Carey's Circus. Their trainer is the fearless Anton, whose work demands absolute fitness and the steadiest of nerves. When Anton is found lying dead in the tigers' cage, it seems that he has lost control and been mauled by the tigers - but Detective-Inspector Minto of Scotland Yard is not convinced.
     
    Minto's investigations lead him deep into the circus world of tents and caravans, clowns and acrobats, human and animal performers. No one is above suspicion. Carey, the circus-owner with a secret to hide; Dodo, the clown whose costume is scratched as if by a claw; and Lorimer, the trapeze artist jealous of his flirtatious wife - all come under Minto's scrutiny as the mystery deepens.
     
    This amusing and light-hearted novel from the golden age of British crime writing has long been neglected, and this new edition will help to restore Melville's reputation as an author of extremely entertaining detective fiction.
