    "This series is ace. There are deservedly strong Lee Child comparisons as the author is also a Brit, his novels US-based, his character appealing, and his publisher the same." - Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller 
    "This is a writer, and a hero, to watch." - Geoffrey Wansell, The Daily Mail 
    Fresh from a stint undercover in Pelican Bay Supermax prison in Northern California, close protection operative Ryan Lock and his business partner, Ty Johnson, are in Los Angeles, tasked with protecting a young Hollywood actress from an abusive movie star boyfriend who refuses to accept that their relationship is over. But as Lock knows only too well, and Ty is about to learn, keeping someone safe from harm can be harder than it looks, and damage can come in unexpected forms. 
    This Lock story, of roughly 15,000 words, can be read separately from the rest of the Ryan Lock series, as can each full-length novel. For readers following the books in order, the events described here take place between the second book in the series, Deadlock, and the third, Gridlock.

    From the jungles of Belize to the streets of Atlanta, Hawker’s war rages on   The CIA wants James Hawker dead. For years, his one-man campaign against organized crime has struck fear into America’s most corrupt politicians, and now they’re striking back. Hawker escaped the United States by the skin of his teeth, and has spent the last months living the life of a glamorous expatriate in Latin America: fast cars, lovely women, and all the champagne his Swiss bank account can buy him. For some men, it would be paradise. For Hawker, a life without action is a living hell.   Then anticommunist crusader Colonel Curtis invites Hawker to Belize, where he’s been assisting the rebel movement in the fight against tyranny. His enemies have powerful friends back in the United States, who would kill Curtis to protect the regime. For the sake of liberty, Hawker must stop running—and resume his battle for America’s soul.  Atlanta Extreme is the 9th book in the Hawker series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    "Family secrets, childhood memories, and old crimes influence the present in this suspenseful debut. Kate is a gutsy character, and her romance with Sam is enjoyable. An open-ended finale leaves room for future conflicts within the Magda family...A solid bet for fans of dark crime dramas."--Library Journal 
    "[An] exciting first novel...Stahl keeps the reader on a roller-coaster ride with unexpected twists and turns to the end."--Publishers Weekly 
    "It's a thrilling story about a young prosecutor, her prominent judge father and a shocking crime."--The Citizens' Voice (Wilkes-Barre, PA) 
    "An engrossing read from a first-time author."--The CyberLibrarian 
    "Exciting and realistic."--The Book Faerie 
    "I was up all night, utterly riveted by The Devil's Song, with its memorable characters, crisp dialogue, and meticulous plotting. It's hard to believe this is a debut. Lauren Stahl is a writer to watch!"--Alafair Burke, best-selling author of The Ex 
    "The Devil's Song is a book born from those dark places most writers and readers dare not go. It's not just about cops and killers, lawyers and judges. It's about real people with real lives. It's about family, fathers and daughters, lovers and friends, and the ghosts of the past that haunt them all. In this stunning debut novel, Lauren Stahl paints a chilling portrait of childhood nightmares relived, rich with both suspense and emotion."--Keith Gilman, author of Bad Habits 
    "A racing read by an author who knows how to tell a story, The Devil's Song plunges the reader equally into two worlds: one of killers, insanity, child victims, and revenge; and another of the details and especially the politics and power plays of law, order, and investigation. It's hard to tell at times which world is the more difficult to comprehend. Grabbed and held me straight through to the last page."--S.J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author of Ghost Hero 
    Up-and-coming Mission County, Pennsylvania, prosecutor Kate Magda has been given the assignment of a lifetime: lead counsel on a string of murders rocking the community. As the privileged daughter of a powerful local judge, Kate views the case as her chance to show her boss, her family, and the public that she is more than just "the judge's daughter." 
    As Kate delves into the case, she becomes convinced that she shares a personal link with the killer, who seems to know intimate details about a tragic childhood event from Kate's past--an event she’d long been trying to forget. Paranoia sets in, the night terrors return, and Kate has a strong sense that she's the killer's next victim. She no longer feels assigned to the case...she is the case, and solving it is her only chance for survival.
