Brianna by Linda Andrews

Love, lies, and an ancient Egyptian curse…

Brianna Grey holds the key to mankind’s destruction.

For aspiring US Treasury Agent Duncan Stuart, love means death. He works alone, lives alone and plans to die alone…until he meets Brianna again. Under the harsh Egyptian sun, he will break all his rules to save her.

But will that be enough, given the secret Brianna knows that could get them both killed?

The Sword Of Danu by Christine Norris

The Sword of Danu by Christine Norris

Just when everything was under control…

Megan has embraced her role as the Librarian, protector of the Library of Athena. She’s spent her entire summer teaching herself magic (al though it doesn’t always work out the way she wants) and studying the Library’s secrets. The Order of Ares, an organization bent on stealing all of the Library’s artifacts, are always at the back of her mind, though they’ve been quiet for awhile.

Then she is forced into yet another enchanted story. Or rather, the story comes to her, somehow ripped from the pages of the book and brought to life. She and her friends must fight their way through an imaginary Ireland, where danger lies around every turn, and find the mythical Sword of Danu.

It’s a race against time—because the magic is spreading. The manor is being overrun, and Megan, Rachel, Claire and Harriet must fight through what was supposed to be an imaginary world to find the sword and return things to normal.

Eve Missing by Ralph Pezzullo

Eve Missing by Ralph Pezzullo

Where Is Eve?

Tony Annicelli (aka Smokey) retired from the NYPD after he took four bullets in his side trying to settle a domestic dispute. One of his first cases as a PI involved a troubled runaway who has since become an internationally known supermodel—and Smokey’s friend. When she asks him to look for a missing model named Angela Bowman, he’s ready to help.

Known as Eve, Angela was a teenage hooker when she was rescued by sophisticated designer Danielle Giroux. Smokey is smitten the first time he meets Danielle, and he’s determined to find out what happened to her protege. Then he learns Danielle attacked Eve the night before she disappeared, apparently in a murderous rage. What else, he wonders, did she not tell him?

Before he can confront her, Danielle vanishes, too, and the path to tracking her down has death lurking at every mile marker.

Blood of My Blood by Ralph Pezzullo

Blood of My Blood by Ralph Pezzullo

Who killed Ricky?

Smokey Annicelli promised Evan Bravere as his best friend lay dying he’d look after Evan’s son Ricky. It wasn’t a hardship—he was Ricky’s godfather.

But years passed, and life happened, and he lost track of Ricky. Then one morning, he’s called to the scene of a brutal murder. The victim is his godson.

Who murdered the charismatic young rock star, and who had he gone to 247 W. 29th Street to see? As Smokey throws himself headlong into the case, it brings back memories of a terrible night in Bronx River Park he’s spent the last thirty years trying to forget. With vicious thugs on his tail, he has to dig deeper than he ever thought he could to solve a mystery that, in many ways, explains his own life.

An Ungodly Child by Rachel Green

Ungodly Child by Rachel Green

Of all the infernal ideas…

Harold Waterman isn’t like other boys, but when a clutch of interfering angels decide he’s going to be the Antichrist that’s going a bit too far.

Grown up, and stricken with a terminal illness by the angel of pestilence, Harold summons a demon, and only then does he learn he comes from an unusual family. Well, more unusual than even he’d been aware of. As he and Jasfoup look for a cure, Harold discovers not only some rather useful talents but that the world as he knows it… isn’t.

The Secret of My-Myst by Mike DiCerto

The Secret of My-Myst by Mike DiCerto

There’s a little bit of good in the worst of us.

 

Rupert Starbright, separated from his guide and protector Dream Weaver, travels the dangerous Wildness with two wild boys who have vowed to help Murkus defeat Queen Chroma and conquer Far-Myst. Separated from the boy who calls himself Xerks, Rupert and the other boy, who is none other than Dream Weaver’s son Quix, stumble on a gateway to a land of mystery—My-Myst, the land of the dreaded Truseens.

As Murkus, now a creature half man and half dragon, sucks all the joy and color from Far-Myst with his deadly dark sun, Rupert decides he must confront his enemy and ask him why he so hates imagination and its wonders because no one else is willing to do it.

Is there something good buried deep within the black heart of the Dragon Lord? And are Rupert’s faith and imagination strong enough to find it and keep Far-Myst from becoming another Graysland?

Caviar Dreams by Judy Nichols

Caviar Dreams by Judy Nichols

The rich are different, or so they think.

Lisa Watson’s career as a professional photographer is stalled, so a night of pizza and movies with her best friend Debbie sounds like a great idea. How was she to know Debbie would end up targeted by a smooth-talking con man, and that the relationship would end up with both Debbie and Derek dead?

Did Derek kill Debbie then skip town? Detective Tony Cafazio doesn’t think so, but he’s the only one. The department is satisfied to blame the murder on the bad guy, but Cafazio thinks there’s someone else involved–a man whose position in the community is so exalted there’s a very good chance he’s about to get away with murder…literally.

About Us by Chester Aaron

About Us by Chester Aaron

We are in part what our families have made us.

Set under the shadows of the Great Depression and World War II, About Us follows Benny Kahn, youngest of a Jewish family living in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, from his first great disappointment to the moment when he faces the choice of who and what he will become. It is a story of joy and grief, of love and anger, and of a boy who grows to manhood while the world he knows crumbles and falls.

In his first novel, reprinted now after nearly three decades, Chester Aaron’s clear eye leaves hidden neither the triumphs nor the tragedies, the sense nor the madness that are inevitable when human dreams and fears collide.
