  • Jonathan 'Jad' Bell has spent a lifetime in the US army. He can be relied on to get the job done, whatever happens, whatever the cost.
    So when someone needs to go undercover at the nation's biggest amusement park, Jad is the obvious choice. Aside from dealing with fights and missing children, his main responsibility is to prevent the nightmare scenario from coming to pass.
    This is the nightmare scenario:
    A group of well-trained, highly motivated terrorists infiltrate the park. They cut off all escape routes. They take hostages. They ensure every camera in the world is trained on Wilsonville...and then they turn it into a bloodbath.
    And on the day the nightmare becomes real, Jad and his team are all that stands between a band of ruthless killers and thousands of innocent people... including Jad's estranged wife and daughter.

  • The acclaimed author of Shooting at Midnight has penned a thriller like no other ... the noholdsbarred story of a bodyguard with the ultimate assignment: protecting a woman who also happens to be the most hunted killer in the world...Codenamed Drama, she is a lightningfast death machine — a hitwoman sought by intelligence agencies around the world. Drama kills as easily as she breathes ... and the last time she and Atticus Kodiak met, they barely escaped each other alive. Atticus Kodiak has a reputation as one of the toughest bodyguards in the business. He’s used to picking his assignments and calling the shots. But all that changes when he is forced to take on Drama as a client — the last person he ever imagined would need his protection. This time, Drama is the one who is running from a killer. She needs Atticus’s help, and she won’t take no for an answer. To prove it, she abducts a highprofile member of the royal family whom Atticus has sworn to protect. He will do almost anything to get the woman back. But what Drama needs from him will destroy his reputation — and siding with her means he can never turn back.From New York’s Russian enclaves to the Swiss Alps and the Caribbean, Atticus becomes Drama’s protector, and her only hope for survival as she tries to outlive and outrun her bloody past. But once immersed in Drama’s highstakes, covert world, Atticus breaks a cardinal rul: He gets to know Drama as a woman rather than just a client — and it’s a bond that could cost them both their lives.For the men hunting Drama are capable of unspeakable violence — of sins that make Drama’s own look like the acts of an amateur. And they will stop at nothing to see her dead....A masterful work by one of the most unique voices in the field, Critical Space combines highvoltage, hightech action with swift, terrifying brutality. The result is Greg Rucka’s most explosive thriller to date — a powerhouse of a novel destined to become a classic of modern suspense.From the Hardcover edition.

  • BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Greg Ruckas The Last Run.
    Atticus Kodiak knows where people go to hide. Thats why he and Alena Cizkova have come to a secluded Georgian town in the former U.S.S.R. What he doesnt know is what his friend and neighbor Bakhar Lagidze was hiding from. Bakhar and his entire family have been viciously murdered--all except for Lagidzes fourteen-year-old daughter, whose nightmare is just beginning. To rescue her, Atticus must enter a lethal web that stretches from Russia to Istanbul, from Dubai to Las Vegas, and into the very heart of evil. But what troubles Atticus the most is that Alena, once one of the worlds most fearless assassins, is clearly terrified of what Atticus will uncover--and what hell become when he does.

  • Burned out from a decade in Special Section clandestine ops, Tara Chance applies for a desk job so that she can spend more time with her daughter only to be drawn into a mission involving the Ayatollah's son's request to defect.

  • Greg Rucka has earned the kind of reputation that all thriller writers envy: his crime fiction grabs readers by the throat and compels them to read as if their own lives were at stake. Now, in an electrifying departure, Rucka creates a new kind of hero: a damaged young woman in free fall who';s not only in danger--but dangerous.
    A Fistful of Rain Mim Bracca is riding the fast lane straight off the end of the world. Now she';s coming home without a job, without a future, and without a prayer--and only one last chance to get her feet under her, or go down forever. But home has its own terrors, including a past Mim has done everything possible to leave behind.
    Now that past is coming back with the shocking speed and deadly intent of a sniper';s bullet, aimed to destroy her once and for all. When Mim suffers her first blackout, waking up dazed and bloodied, she';s certain she';s hit rock bottom.
    She';s wrong. She';s only just begun to fall.
    The photos are invasive, obscene, and all over the Internet for anyone to see. How they got there, where and when they were shot, and by whom, Mim has no idea. And before the investigation into the matter even begins, a brutal murder makes it clear that whatever Mim thinks her life has been up to now, she';s about to learn it';s all a lie.
    The kind of lie that will kill.
    Written with stunning originality, A Fistful of Rain crosses the line separating the guilty from the innocet as it takes us on a breakneck ride of deceit and double cross and--quite possibly--the last twenty-four hours in Mim Bracca';s stormy life.
