At War For Her Liberty…
and on the seas, the fearless young patriot Tim Bennett lay in wait for the mighty ships of the British fleet. Tim attached with all the fierceness of the new-found American love for freedom, wiping the seas clean of the encroaching forces of slavery and oppression.
At home the war raged on, and the gentle Lucy waited for her lover while he scrouged the British fleet. But in Cap Francois. Tim met a fatal attraction to the preverse, enticing Jeannette, to whom freedom and liberty were merely words to be set aside in the cause of her own demanding passion.
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?
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.
First One Dead Body…
A prostitute lies strangled in a seedy French Quarter hotel room. Miles away, in a rambling plantation house on the sultry shores of Lake Ponchartrain, popular late-night radio host Dr. Samantha Leeds receives a threatening crank call. All in a day’s work for a celebrity. Who would think to link the two?
A second hooker’s corpse turns up. Samantha’s ominous caller persists, along with a mysterious claiming to be a woman from her past–a woman who’s been dead for years. With Detective Rick Bentz convinced that the serial killer prowling the shadowy streets of New Orleans is somebody close to Samantha, she doesn’t dare trust anyone. Especially not Ty Wheeler, her seductive new neighbor who seems to know more about her than a stranger should.
Somebody has discovered Samantha’s darkest secret. Somebody is convinced that lives must be sacrificed to pay for her sins. So far, the victims have been strangers. But as a cunning, cold-blooded killer grows bolder, Samantha wonders in dread if she will be the next to die…
The dead woman on a cold slab in the Arizona morgue was a talented artist recently arrived from the West Coast. The Washington State Attorney General’s office thinks this investigation is too big for a small-town female law officer to handle, so they’re sending Sheriff Joanna Brady some unwanted help—a seasoned detective named Beaumont. Sheriff Brady resents his intrusion, and Bisbee, Arizona, with its ghosts and memories, is the last place J.P. Beaumont wants to be. But the twisting desert road they must reluctantly travel together is leading them into a very deadly nest of rattlers. And if they hope to survive, suddenly trust is the only option they have left…
