It maintained the #1 or #2 slots for 10 straight months. Bestselling author Richard Bard returns with his highly-rated Brainrush thriller series, pitting hero Jake Bronson against his jihadist nemesis--and a new bioweapon that threatens the soul of every mother in America. When a freak accident gave Jake Bronson near-superhuman mental powers and landed his loved ones in the crosshairs of an Islamic terrorist, the only way out was with guns blazing. But Jake was unable to put a stop to his nightmares or his murderous nemesis, Luciano Battista, in that ferocious Afghan mountains showdown. Now the terror czar and his minions have brought the fight to American soil--along with the most terrifying bioweapon that has ever threatened the free world. They demand vengeance, and Jake's family and friends are caught in the crossfire. From California's beaches and Mexico's deserts to the depths of a raging underground river and the treacherous Venezuelan jungle, Jake and his unlikely alliance of combat veterans and gangsters wage a rolling war of wits, weapons, and indomitable will--to rescue those they love, to save America from extinction, and to stop a madman's bid for global conquest dead in its tracks.

A remarkable debut mystery from the award-winning author of the 2003 St. Martin's Press/Private Eye Writers of America Prize for Best First Private Eye Novel. Michael Koryta's Tonight I Said Goodbye marks the emergence of a stunning new voice in crime fiction. With its edge-of-your-seat pacing, finely drawn characters, and rock-solid prose, Tonight I Said Goodbye would seem to be the work of a grizzled pro; the fact that the author is just twenty-one years old makes it all the more amazing. Investigator Wayne Weston is found dead of an apparent suicide in his home in an upscale Cleveland suburb, and his wife and six-year-old daughter are missing. Weston's father insists that private investigators Lincoln Perry and Joe Pritchard take the case to exonerate his son and find his granddaughter and daughter-in-law. As they begin to work they discover there is much more to the situation than has been described in the prevalent media reports. There are rumors of gambling debts and extortion, and a group of Russians with ties to organized crime who don't appreciate being investigated--a point they make clear with baseball bats. With some assistance from newspaper reporter Amy Ambrose, Perry and Pritchard believe they are making swift progress. But then they are warned off the investigation by a millionaire real estate tycoon and the FBI. Just when they feel they are closing in on a possible source of answers, another murder forces them to change direction in the case. Perry travels to a resort town in South Carolina and there he finds more than one game being played, and all of them are deadly. The stakes quickly become very personal for Perry, and it's clear that there will be no walking away from this case. In a debut that has already garnered praise from some of today's top writers, Michael Koryta immediately establishes himself as a standard bearer for the next generation of crime writers. Tonight I Said Goodbye is a 2005 Edgar Award Nominee for Best First Novel.

In the near future, America is experiencing a dramatic increase in terrorist attacks---by jihadists, White supremacists, and Mexican cartels. In the face of these failures by the U.S. Government intelligence and law enforcement bureaucracies, an ad hoc vigilante effort has exploded on the scene. And, surprisingly, this shadowy and deadly vigilante group appears to be led by one of the U.S. Government's most senior and trusted Counterterrorism (CT) insiders. The President convenes a top secret Task Force to investigate and uncover who is spearheading this rogue, inner circle operation. Is it his CIA CT rep? The FBI Special Agent in Charge of CT? Or maybe it's the Army's Senior Special Ops CT expert. Boldly, the President decides to place all three on his Investigative Task Force, hoping to draw out the guilty party or parties, and put an end to the spiraling violence and chaos. Will his gamble pay off ? Or will things spin even further out of control. As the story careens full throttle in parallel between the thrilling action of the vigilantes’ frequent murders of terrorists in the act and the attempts by the senior CT officials to discover the rogues’ identities, neither the reader, the President, the innocent Task Force members, nor, ultimately, the President’s hired top secret investigator knows the real identities of the vigilante leaders. As they close in, the murders---both terrorist and vigilante--ratchet up. The questions then become: what are the risks to America if the public gets wind of the vigilante murders? and what does the president intend to do with the vigilantes if, in fact, they are found alive? Steven W. Kohlhagen, bestselling author of WHERE THEY BURY YOU and CHIEF OF THIEVES, has set a new standard for terrorist novels and action-packed thrillers. Don ́t miss it!
