One By One, They’ll Die…
Twenty years ago, wild child Jessie Brentwood vanished from St. Elizabeth’s high school. Most in Jessie’s tight circle of friends believed she simply ran away. Few suspected that Jessie was hiding a shocking secret-one that brought her into the crosshairs of a vicious killer…
Until There’s No One Left…
Two decades pass before a body is unearthed on school grounds and Jessie’s old friends reunite to talk. Most are sure that the body is Jessie’s, that the mystery of what happened to her has finally been solved. But soon, Jessie’s friends each begin to die in horrible, freak accidents that defy explanation…
Becca Sutcliff has been haunted for years by unsettling visions of Jessie, certain her friend met with a grisly end. Now the latest deaths have her rattled.

Is it all a coincidence-or has Jessie’s killer finally returned to finish what was started all those years ago?
On New Year’s Eve 1999, a chain reaction of computer malfunctions turns what was to be a global gala into a catastrophe. When computers begin to fail along the international dateline, the infection moves westward, causing massive power failures, train and airplane wrecks, and general havoc. As the “Millennium Bug” passes hour by hour through each time zone, it moves inexorably toward the epicenter of the global economy, New York, and the thousands of computers that control the world’s monetary systems.
The Midnight Club, a group of cyberpunks led by Michael “Doc” Downs, has the solution–but they also have an adversary: energetic venture Capitalist Donald Copeland, who has designs on using his technological prowess to “capitalize” on the impending disaster.
Around 10:30 A.M. on December 31, a Safeway in New York is hit by the Bug, sent all the way form Guam. All systems freeze, and what begins as a simple malfunction snowballs into looting and rioting. Pandemonium reigns on the streets of Manhattan. As the day progresses, the blaze of fear increases to the point of insanity.
In the style of Michael Crichton and Stephen Coonts, Mark Joseph has created a techno-thriller that is sure to touch a nerve in everyone as the millennium draws closer.
Two small towns in the middle of nowhere: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher can’t find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four hostile locals, a vagrancy charge, and an order to move on.
They’re picking on the wrong guy.
Reacher is a hard man. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing at all, except hardheaded curiosity. What are the secrets that Despair seems so desperate to hide?
With just one ally – a mysterious woman cop from Hope – and many enemies, Reacher goes up against a whole town, hunting the rich man at its core, cracking open his terrifying agenda, asking the question: Who has the edge – a man with everything to gain, or a man with nothing to lose?
