Summary

China tried to finish off western manufacturing. But they never expected the American response. Nobody did, especially Americans. In a trade war, the winning country is the one whose people lose the most. 
Anderson was a soldier in better times. Now between his divorce, credit card debt, and a truck without insurance, the American dream is nowhere in sight. Then he is offered a job by a mysterious man named Martin – five million dollars is a lot of money! 5 targets in 5 weeks. Who is he working for? What are their goals?  
You’ve seen it online. The cute questionnaire with the elephant that asks, ‘which cartoon character best fits you?’ Answer as if your life depends on it. It does. Social Media is a weapon of the government. It always has been, but now mass arrests are coming. You are your threat score. We’re crossing the threshold from ‘do something wrong’ to ‘be someone wrong.' What if those RETWEETS you made were for government messages designed to get you to self-identify? Remember that LIKE on that controversial picture from the news last week?  
Bobby Calhoun is a young Houston television reporter with a comfortable life. He’s got a good job, a pretty fiance, and he manages to slide through without too much effort. Two days from now he will be in over his head and on his way to becoming the most hated man in America.  Was it really his fault? No one had heard of ZLM 150151. No terrorist history on them at all. Home grown. Then they made their intentions known with the first five murders. Bobby didn’t ask them to contact him. He thought he was helping. Can he survive his own mistakes? 
 
A decade ago Carl Millibank told a reporter that he would become America's first trillionaire. He's doesn't talk to reporters anymore. Millibank is running the the American response. Carl is a detailed planner type. Plan-Do-Check-Act. Contingencies and risk mitigation. Timelines and deadlines. A formidable man, considered a degenerate by those who know him well. Can he keep America on the road to dystopia?  
You don't just wake up one morning in a dystopia. There is a path. There is a story. 
Wide-spread systemic failures are coming and they are all according to plan. Then a rapid shift to the new model. The biggest change to America in over 150 years is starting and there is nothing you can do to stop it. It begins two days from today with the murder of a cop in Houston. 
Read The Robespierre Conspiracy now while its still legal. 
Then delete it, just to be safe.

    When Yuri Varienski, a Ukranian emigré, dies in Jersey, he leaves his daughter Lucy an object—and a great responsibility. Lucy must take the gold filigree cross she is bequeathed to Geneva, and deliver it into the hands of exiled former dissident leader, Volkov. Lucy innocently accepts her father’s charge. But Volkov, broken by imprisonment, is not the man he used to be. And there are other people who wish to possess the cross too. For the object Lucy carries is the legendary relic, St. Vladimir’s Cross, and it has the power to unite or divide the volatile Soviet Union.   Lucy soon realizes that she will have to make sacrifices—of her home, her heart, and maybe even her life—if she is going to fulfill her father’s last wish.

    An army deserter returns home to see his dying mother—and stumbles into a deadly mystery—in this suspenseful medical thriller. Under enemy fire in Vietnam, Brian Maston had just one impulse: run. And he ran, all right—out of the war zone, out of the US Army, and all the way to Canada—and now he can never go home. He’s spent years in Montreal working as a teacher, publishing a struggling magazine, and nursing a crippling addiction to alcohol when he gets his mother’s call. She’s dying, with no more than two weeks to live, and there’s panic in her voice. But before she can tell him what’s wrong, the hospital cuts her off. To get the truth, Brian returns to the United States, risking everything for the sake of his mother.   He barely reaches her before she dies. But soon after he sees her, he finds her dead in her hospital room—and not of natural causes. There’s a pillow over her face, and when Brian is discovered holding it, he becomes the prime suspect. As the local police search for a killer and federal agents circle closer, Brian must decide if he should keep running—or stand and fight.   More than any other thriller writer, Richard Forrest understood the human element of suspense writing. Fans of Vietnam-era thrillers like Robert Stone’s Dog Soldiers will find The Laughing Man impossible to put down.

    In The Lightkeepers, we follow Miranda, a nature photographer who travels to the Farallon Islands, an exotic and dangerous archipelago off the coast of California, for a one-year residency capturing the landscape. Her only companions are the scientists studying there, odd and quirky refugees from the mainland living in rustic conditions; they document the fish populations around the island, the bold trio of sharks called the Sisters that hunt the surrounding waters, and the overwhelming bird population who, at times, create the need to wear hard hats as protection from their attacks.Shortly after her arrival, Miranda is assaulted by one of the inhabitants of the islands. A few days later, her assailant is found dead, perhaps the result of an accident. As the novel unfolds, Miranda gives witness to the natural wonders of this special place as she grapples with what has happened to her and deepens her connection (and her suspicions) to her companions, while falling under the thrall of the legends of the place nicknamed “the Islands of the Dead.” And when more violence occurs, each member of this strange community falls under suspicion.The Lightkeepers upends the traditional structure of a mystery novel —an isolated environment, a limited group of characters who might not be trustworthy, a death that may or may not have been accidental, a balance of discovery and action —while also exploring wider themes of the natural world, the power of loss, and the nature of recovery. It is a luminous debut novel from a talented and provocative new writer.
