Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Michael Prescott comes a new kind of terror—an electrifying chase through the concrete labyrinth of a steam-tunnel system, where something lurks in the shadows. 
 
Something big. Something hungry.  
 
It's blood sport for the crazies who organize these nocturnal hunts, and a game of death for their latest victim. But unlike all the others, he's a man well acquainted with death. A man who has murdered for money. A man who intends to kill the thing that's stalking him—and kill it hard. 
Die Wide Awake is a 20,000 word novella from the author of Cold Around the Heart and Skin in the Game.

    A serial killer is at large in this “ingenious” New Orleans–set mystery “for those who like their lab talk down and dirty” (Kirkus Reviews).   Portly New Orleans chief medical examiner Andy Broussard and sprightly criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn have dealt with strange murders before—but they’ve never faced a calculating killer who knows their every move. A pair of fatal stabbings are linked by Scrabble tiles left on the bodies of the victims. Someone’s trying to send a message—and Broussard knows it’s meant for him.   Whoever’s behind the slayings is clearly an expert in forensics, perhaps even a former rival of Broussard’s. Forced to play a deadly battle of wits against a brilliant opponent, he and Franklyn must use every bit of their knowledge—and courage—if they hope to stop the killer’s final play.   With “lots of Louisiana color, pinpoint plotting and two highly likable characters,” this is a fast-paced thriller full of Southern flavor you won’t soon forget (Publishers Weekly).

    Every Marine has a story about someone he couldn’t save, a face that would haunt him forever. When Command Sergeant Hal Tarra, one of Decker’s oldest friends, vanishes on the Commonwealth frontier shortly after taking early retirement from the Corps, Zack knows what memories are driving the former Pathfinder, because he sees the same face in his worst nightmares. Naval intelligence isn’t interested in resurrecting ancient history, especially the tale of a failed rescue after it had been consigned to the memory hole. So Decker does the only thing he can, out of friendship and loyalty, and the hope that he might finally redeem the one they’d thought lost long ago: he orders himself on an unsanctioned mission, beyond Fleet support, risking everything for a friend. His intelligence colleagues never could understand the Marine promise, “No One Left Behind” but as he keeps reminding them, he's still one of the Few…

    With the aid of the Indian Shaman Conawago, Duncan McCallum has begun to heal from the massacre of his Highland clan by the British. But his new life is shattered when he and Conawago discover a dying Virginian officer nailed to an Indian shrine tree. To their horror, the authorities arrest Conawago and schedule his hanging. As Duncan begins a desperate search for the truth, he finds himself in a maelstrom of deception and violence. The year is 1760, and while the British army wishes to dismiss the killing as another casualty of its war with France, Duncan discovers a pattern of ritualistic murders that have less to do with the war than with provincial treaty negotiations and struggles between tribal factions. Ultimately he realizes that to find justice, he must brave the sprawling colonial capital of Philadelphia. There the answers are to be found in a tangle of Quakers, Christian Indians, and a scientist obsessed with the electrical experiments of the celebrated Dr. Franklin. With the tragic resolution in sight, Duncan understands the real mysteries underlying his quest lie in the hearts of natives who, like his Highland Scots, have glimpsed the end of their world approaching.
