Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts—the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report—and with his history, who can blame them?—it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.   Edgar and Shamus Award finalist Ben Rehder's novels have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Reviews for Ben Rehder's novels: “Murderously funny.”  —Chicago Tribune “Another of Rehder’s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.”  —Kirkus Reviews “Wickedly funny.”  —Dallas Morning News “The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.”  —Houston Chronicle “Rehder has made the leap from writing skillful comic pleasantries to pulverizing satire.” — Austin American-Statesman  “Rehder writes with an assured hand and a knowing tip of the wide-brimmed cowboy hat to the ways and wiles of the characters that people his distinctly Texan landscape."

Mia Kazmaroff has a gift nobody wants. She's able to tell the story behind any object simply by touch. It's a gift that comes in handy when her only brother, a detective with the Atlanta Major Crimes Division, is murdered. Determined to find his killer, Mia reaches out to the one person in Atlanta she believes can help her—Dave's partner, Jack Burton. Unfortunately, Burton is also the prime suspect. Together, Mia and Jack create a partnership that breaks all the rules, skirts every law, and lobs as many sparks and landmines at each other as if they were adversaries–which half the time they are—all while attempting to ignore their undeniable mutual attraction. Can two people so different—one intuitive and inexperienced, the other cynical and by-the-book—work together to solve the murder?   And can they do it before the killer turns his attention to Mia?

When Brandon Fisher joined the FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit, he knew he’d come up against psychopaths, sociopaths, pathological liars, and more. But when his first case takes him and the team to Salt Lick, Kentucky, to hunt down a ritualistic serial killer, he learns what nightmares are truly made of. Beneath a residential property, local law enforcement discovered an underground bunker with circular graves that house the remains of ten victims. But that’s not all: there’s an empty eleventh grave, just waiting for a corpse. The killing clearly hasn’t come to an end yet, and with the property owner already behind bars, Brandon is certain there’s an apprentice who roams free. As the FBI follows the evidence across the United States, Brandon starts to struggle with the deranged nature of his job description. And if the case itself isn’t going to be enough to push Brandon over the edge, he’s working in the shadow of Supervisory Special Agent Jack Harper, who expects nothing short of perfection from his team. To make matters even worse, it seems Brandon has become the target of a psychotic serial killer who wants to make him—or his wife—victim number eleven.

But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse. Bella DeFranco is one of the Bronx’s top SVU detectives. At only 37, she disarms everyone with her stunning good looks, yet she is as tough as most men—and a lot smarter, too. Yet when is summoned to Greenvale, she finds herself getting lost in a case that even she can’t comprehend. She stumbles into a land of secrets, a place where husbands hide their pasts from their wives, where friends are not what they seem, and where no one wants to know too much. As she digs deeper into layers of suburban dysfunction, she comes to learn that, behind all the fake smiles, there is a subtle violence--rivaling even her crime-ridden streets of the Bronx. With a killer on the loose, time running out, and a new partner who never recovered from his washed-up alcoholic days, the odds are stacked against Bella. She is determined, though, to save these girls, whatever the cost. Yet as she gets close, the depth of psychosis she discovers shocks even her….

Great Britain is on the verge of social collapse. After eight years of disastrous rule under the Labour Government, the country is ready for change. The far right administration of Lawrence Pelham is swept to power on a tide of hope and expectation that his Party can rejuvenate Britain. But Pelham’s remedies are radical and things are about to get worse. Much worse. When disgraced former political correspondent Harry Clarke acquires a disc containing the Government’s five year plan, he realizes that the content is so explosive the Government will stop at nothing to prevent the revelations of what his old adversary Pelham really intends for the nation. Framed for the high profile murder of a former Cabinet Minister, and his family sent to a deportation camp, he is ruthlessly hunted and then abducted into a combative resistance cell led by Julianne, his former lover. Harry finds himself part of an audacious plot to overthrow the dictatorial regime, but Pelham is willing to go to any lengths to consolidate his power. In this intriguing thriller set in a dystopian U.K. of the near future, the author creates an atmospheric and plausible portrayal of a nation on the brink. This compelling novel considers how circumstances can align to create conditions that give rise to a right wing dictatorship headed by a charismatic, powerful and genocidal leader prepared to sacrifice millions of innocent people to suit his own twisted vision for the nation.

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery!

The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone) Women are turning up dead in the rural outskirts of Phoenix, killed in grotesque ways, and when the FBI is called in, they are stumped. A serial killer is out there, his frequency increasing, and they know there is only one agent who can crack this case: Special Agent Riley Paige. Riley is on paid leave herself, recovering from her encounter with her last serial killer, and as fragile as she is, the FBI is reluctant to tap her brilliant mind. Yet Riley, needing to battle her own demons, comes on board, and her hunt leads her through the disturbing subculture of doll collectors, into the homes of broken families, and into the darkest canals of the killer’s mind. As Riley peels back the layers, she realizes she is up against a killer more twisted than she could have imagined, and in a frantic race against time, Riley is pushed to her limit, her job on the line, her own family in danger, and her fragile psyche collapsing. Yet once Riley Paige takes on a case, she will not quit. It obsesses her, leading her to the darkest corners of her own mind, blurring the lines between hunter and hunted. After a series of unexpected twists, her instincts lead her to a shocking climax that even Riley could not have imagined. A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE GONE marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me. I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet. My hands and feet won't stop shaking. Some will say that I m not really here. Some will say I'm delusional. Some will say that I don t even exist. But who are they? I'm the one buried in a grave.  My name is Christy Snow. I'm seventeen. I'm about to die.  So who are you?   In a return to the kind of storytelling that made Black, Showdown and Three unforgettable, Ted Dekker drags that question into the light with this modern day parable about how we see ourselves.  Humming with intensity and blindsided twists, Eyes Wide Open is raw adrenaline from the first page to the last pure escapism packed with inescapable truth. Not all is as it seems. Or is it? Strap yourself in for the ride of your life. Literally.

What would you do if someone you loved committed murder? Puerile man-boy, Neil Denton, thinks his life is ticking along just fine. Putting his recent failure behind him, he's retaking his degree in social sciences and earning money on the side organizing pyramid broadband sales (with most of the actual work being done by his Polish flat mates). He has a loyal best friend, Dan Harper, who is a police constable on one of Swindon's response teams, and best of all he is dating the girl of his dreams Anne. Sure there are a few cracks in the Façade. Dan won’t shut up about how great his job is and Anne shares a house with her ex-boyfriend who, truth be told, is far better suited to her than Neil. And then there is his alcohol intake, which his friends would argue is getting excessive. But generally he has little to complain, that is, until the bomb is dropped. Prostitute, Dawn Richards, is missing and circumstantial evidence surrounding her disappearance leads Neil to suspect that his brother Michael may be involved. The suspicion could be dismissed, were it not that certain elements of the case echo back to a shared childhood trauma that has become a taboo of which they do not speak. With no one to confide in, Neil is forced to figure out alone whether his suspicions are genuine or merely cannabis-fueled paranoia. As his life begins to unravel at an alarming pace, it seems Neil must at last do the unthinkable: Grow up or die trying.

Helen Mably suddenly vanishes, a sex-obsessed academic with a brilliant mind and a deeply disturbed past. Twenty years earlier Helen was a carefree precocious teenager, until she was raped by three policemen in a police social club. Helen’s memory of the event has been clouded by her father’s betrayal. Chief Inspector David Mably was the policemen’s boss and he always maintained that he never covered anything up, just persuaded Helen that if she pressed charges, she would be exposed to sharp defence barristers and intrusive journalists. Stuart’s an Oxford journalist, who finds out about Helen’s disappearance from her father. David Mably gives an urgent appeal to Stuart’s newspaper about Helen’s plight. Stuart and Mably have a history of vitriolic antagonism towards each other, Mably thought Stuart nothing other than a hooligan, who deflowered his innocent daughter. Stuart saw Mably as a vain, domineering, intolerant perfectionist who never loved Helen. After the interview Mably gives Stuart the first few pages of a journal that Helen intended to publish. It briefly outlined the assault and her intention to write an explicit account of the incident itself and the subsequent cover up. Although Stuart and Helen were in an intense relationship at the time of the attack, he knew nothing about the event. When Stuart finds Helen they soon realise that her father’s motives are more about supressing not only Helen version of the rape, but something much darker. Together they expose a conspiracy that started in a police social club, involves systematic abuse in a care home and reaches all the way up the ladder to a junior minister in the Home Office. Unknown to Helen, the reconciliation with her father is achieved by one more betrayal on his part. A dark, psychological mystery about a disturbed woman who finds a degree of justice, but will forever feel the dark hand of her father’s treachery close by.

“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.” --Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone) From #1 bestselling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense. Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, remains haunted by the abduction of her own daughter, years before, never found. Still obsessed with finding her, Keri buries her grief the only way she knows how: by throwing herself into the cases of missing persons in Los Angeles. A routine phone call from a worried mother of a high-schooler, only two hours missing, should be ignored. Yet something about the mother’s voice strikes a chord, and Keri decides to investigate. What she finds shocks her. The missing daughter—of a prominent senator—was hiding secrets no one knew. When all evidence points to a runaway, Keri is ordered off the case. And yet, despite pressure from her superiors, from the media, despite all trails going cold, the brilliant and obsessed Keri refuses to let it go. She knows she has but 48 hours if she has any chance of bringing this girl back alive. A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, A TRACE OF DEATH marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. “A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone) Book #2 in the Keri Locke series is also now available!

Twenty-six year-old Jessie Scout had endured a life steeped in pain. She feared no one. Her heart had travelled to regions few could conjure in dreams. It was reflected in her photo ID card clipped to her chest. Her pretty face was a mystery. A glint of arrogance in her eyes that squinted slightly to offer a smile; a manifestation of righteous contempt for every injustice that had befallen her. It held a vengeful calm. Because she had purchased secrets. Paid in full with her tears. Her blood. She had come to Las Vegas, a city of risk, not to gamble. But to collect. MICHAEL CONNELLY selected "Lightning Rider" for inclusion in DEATH IN VEGAS: New Crime Tales of Gambling and Desperation, the #1 Bestselling anthology on Kindle that he edited. Lighting Rider by Rick Mofina received Canada's top literary prize for crime fiction, the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Short Story presented by the Crime Writers of Canada. It is one of four gripping tales in his crime anthology, DANGEROUS WOMEN & DESPERATE MEN.

I couldn't put it down." -- Tamar Myers The truth about what happened in 1949 went to Paul Fischer's grave… Too bad his body didn't! Advertising copywriter Leigh Koslow doesn't pack heat -- just a few extra pounds. And she doesn't go looking for trouble. When she moved into her cousin Cara's refurbished Victorian house, she wasn't planning on discovering a corpse-certainly not one that had been embalmed ten years before. But as anyone in the small Pittsburgh borough of Avalon could tell her, her cousin's house has a history attached. A history dating back to two mysterious deaths in the summer of 1949. Someone wants Leigh and Cara out of the house -- someone who has something to hide. But that someone doesn't know Leigh's impetuous cousin, and when Cara digs her heels in, Leigh looks to her old college chum, local policewoman Maura Polanski, for help. But the answers the trio find only point to more questions. Were the scandalous deaths of fifty years ago really an accident and a suicide? Or were they murder? The nearer the women get to the truth, the more desperate someone becomes. Because some secrets are better off kept. Especially when they hit close to home!

The police believe it is suicide brought upon by bankruptcy, but Annie believes Voss has been murdered and that his assets have been stolen. Nate Dawson has a problem. As the Voss family lawyer, he would love to believe that Matthew Voss didn't leave his grieving family destitute.

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC

Edgar and Shamus Award finalist Ben Rehder's Blanco County comic mysteries have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream.  Buck Fever was nominated for the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Novel.  Description: It's the week before deer hunting season, as close to a statewide holiday as you get in Texas, and the locals are getting restless. Game Warden John Marlin has his hands full with poaching complaints coming in faster than he can write out-of-season tickets. Then a call of a different sort comes in. A man dressed up in some sort of deer costume has been shot at the Circle S ranch, and witnesses are reporting a massive wild-eyed buck prancing about the pasture in a lovesick frenzy. Marlin's seen a lot in his years, but this is wilder than he could have imagined: the man in the deer suit is a good friend, and the whacked-out whitetail isn't exactly a stranger either. It's the beginning of a mad, frantic weekend in Blanco County, one that will see a few more men shot, an invasion by Colombians with more than hunting on their minds, and damn near the end of Marlin's life. Ben Rehder serves it all up with a huge helping of humor in this debut comic mystery that will firmly establish him as the funniest crime writer in Texas.  REVIEWS FOR BUCK FEVER:  "This debut novel is a complete success, tearing out of Texas chock-full of characters so nutty and events so strange it seems as if they must be real. The writing here is confident and vigorous; the tone is quintessentially Texan and relentlessly wry. There's sure to be a long career for this happy, wacky series."  —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)  "This is a wild and crazy first novel, crowded with weird people, unusual relationships (both animal and human), and frequent humor that will appeal to fans of Carl Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey, and other comic mystery writers. Strongly recommended for most collections."  —Library Journal (Starred Review)  "It's been our pleasure to be among the first reviewers to take notice of several writers who eventually became best sellers, including Nevada Barr, Lee Child and Randy Wayne White. Ben Rehder has what it takes to join that group. Imagine Carl Hiaasen with a Texas accent…"  —Denver Post  "Briskly paced, amusing, spiced with deftly drawn good-old-boy portraits: an altogether promising debut."  —Kirkus Reviews  "…side-splitting…akin to the Tom Robbins style of humor writing."  —ESPN Outdoors  "Austinite Ben Rehder's debut novel is the summer's best find. With a nod and a wink to Carl Hiaasen, Rehder comes out swinging with a sardonic Tex-centric look at trophy deer hunters, beer-guzzling poachers, and Game Warden John Marlin—the man charged with keeping them all in line. Buck Fever is too fun to be legal."  —Texas Monthly

After two tough years practicing law, Stan and his family take a well-deserved vacation to Colorado. Unfortunately the vacation is cut short when a client is found standing over the body of a dead IRS agent. It appears to be an open and shut case since Dusty Thomas has had a long feud with the dead agent Bobby Tuttle, and more than enough motive to kill him, yet he claims to be innocent. Stan's new partner Paula Waters convinces Stan to finish his vacation promising to handle Dusty Thomas' arraignment and get an investigation underway. While Stan is away, she makes good on her promise and even manages to arrange financing for Dusty's defense. But Stan is mortified when he reads in the Colorado papers that a radical paramilitary group, the Citizens Defense Alliance or CDA, is doing the funding. Since the CDA denies the legitimacy of the federal income tax and has been a target of federal prosecutors for many years, Stan and Paula immediately come under the close scrutiny of the FBI and the press. To further complicate matters, Stan's best client and close friend, Tex Weller, is reported missing by his wife. When Stan investigates his disappearance, he finds a letter that leads him to believe Tex is in Ecuador. While Stan is searching for Tex in Ecuador, Paula continues her investigation of Bobby Tuttle's murder and quickly discovers a long list of enemies with motive to kill him. But her investigation is sidetracked when she learns Stan is missing and may have been kidnaped. As weeks go by and Stan isn't found, she is forced to turn her attention back to the Dusty Thomas case and leave the search for Stan up to the FBI and the local Ecuadorian authorities. Barely able to concentrate, she plods on and day by day and soon becomes convinced that Dusty Thomas is innocent.
