Is it bad luck to get held at gunpoint on a first date?

Her daughter, Monika, is a flirt who seems intent on undermining Berg’s fragile confidence. His job is a mystery of paper-pushing and classified documents, none of which he is allowed to understand. As the days go by, he feels a growing sense of dread. The town is closing in for the kill.   While Berg is sleeping, Monika is raped and left near death on the first floor of her house. She accuses Berg of the crime, drawing him into a labyrinth of bureaucratic justice from which insanity may be the only escape.

    Being a vampire isn't easy. Jenna Skye thought she could pull it off without giving up her old life, but the compromises are taking a toll—and not just on her.

    Jenna's never been good with change, but with her human existence slipping further and further out of her reach, she has no choice but to accept FBI agent Roman Knight's offer to help the supernatural police force ruled by House Lilith hunt down a serial killer targeting new vampires in St. Louis…like her. Playing bait isn't exactly what Jenna had in mind, but it's a rookie lump she'll have to take if she wants a shot at joining Blood Vice—and if she wants to survive her new life as a vampire.

    ‘The
    window’s lead is melting, its glass is bowing out. Within the plaster walls,
    horsehairs crisp in filaments of fire. Soon there is nothing left within the
    room. Wood. Wool. Flesh. Even metal. Gone. So now, like any living thing, flame
    has a choice:
    
     
    Feed
    or die. 
    
     
    Across the threshold, a city sleeps.’

    GOD’S VENGEANCE BE SPECTACULAR? 
    
     
    1666. The Great Plague, that killed 100,000
    citizens, has passed. Londoners celebrate survival in different ways. Some with
    praising God. Many, including the Merry Monarch and his court, with sin. They
    drink. They gamble. They indulge in carnal delights.  
    
     
    While others…
    
     
     
    
     
    666 is the number of the Beast, this the
    year foretold when Christ will return. To slay the Devil. To bring the New Jerusalem.
    A gang of fanatics – the Saints -  choose
    to hasten that prophesied day. They will kidnap, rape, murder. Above all, they
    will kill a king. For in the renegade Captain Blood they have the perfect assassin.
    
     
    Two men - the highwayman William Coke and
    the thief-taker Pitman - are recruited to stop them. Both fall victim to the
    Saint’s foul plots. All seems lost…  
    
     
     
    
     
    Yet in the early hours of September 2nd,
    1666, something starts that will overtake them all – fanatics, princes,
    soldiers and fops, actresses and holy murderers. For the year of the Beast is
    three quarters done and the Devil has not yet had his due. 
    
     
     London’s a tinder box. Politically,
    sexually, religiously. Literally. It is about to burn. 
    
    	
    		
    		
    	
    	
    		
    			
    				
    					
    						 
    ‘The brilliance of Fire is that while the villains and their motives
    are known, the rest of the plot is slowly revealed in an engrossing
    thriller that shifts from a riverside theatre to the cramped confines of
    a 17th-century warship and finally to the congested parishes of
    London.’ - Macleans Magazine
