Quando si lavora per la mafia, può capitare di dover uccidere molte persone in tanti modi diversi. Ceaton Mercer ha stivato gli ultimi due cadaveri in un capanno degli attrezzi che appartiene a un adorabile ricercatore marino che abita in un’idilliaca comunità isolana, ma non è poi così cattivo. Con il tempo si è trovato una specie di casa e forse anche un posto nel cuore delle persone con cui lavora, o almeno quanto basta perché non gli piantino un proiettile in testa quando smette di essere utile per il boss.

Ma non ha mai immaginato che un solo giorno potesse cambiargli la vita, ed è sul punto di scoprire quanto si sbaglia.

Gli basta un giorno per incontrare l’uomo che sembra essere quello giusto, l’amore della sua vita. Sembra inconcepibile che un uomo che si occupa di morte possa trovare l’amore, ma è come se fosse destino. Gli basta un giorno, che si fa sempre più strano e in cui i problemi si accumulano, per costringere Ceaton a riflettere sulla sua cupa esistenza e ad accettare che in ventiquattro ore tutto può cambiare, perfino lui stesso. Il suo futuro potrebbe rivelarsi più luminoso di quanto si aspettasse, ma dovrà restare vivo abbastanza a lungo da scoprirlo.

PI Jackson Rivers and Defense Attorney Ellery Cramer have barely recovered from last November, when stopping a serial killer nearly destroyed Jackson in both body and spirit.

Oswell goes from a nobody with little social life and few prospects for the future to dating the man of his dreams and using his superhuman abilities to defend innocents. Everything is perfect, and it seems he’s finally achieved a happily ever after worthy of the silver screen. But when a supervillain arrives, determined to defeat Oswell and win Kane’s affections, everything falls apart. In the ensuing conflict, Kane gets caught in the crossfire, and Oswell faces his toughest fight yet. Can he remain the hero he’s always imagined himself, or will a dark desire for vengeance change him forever?

Suite de À toute épreuve

Jory Harcourt a enfin la vie dont il rêvait. Être marié à l’US Marshal Sam Kage l’a changé. Ils ont fait la paix avec leur passé tumultueux et Sam a transformé Jory : autrefois prêt à fuir à la moindre difficulté, il est désormais capable de rester pour affronter les tempêtes. Sam et lui ont deux enfants, une maison en banlieue et un minivan génial. L’époque où Jory était l’épicentre du désastre est révolue. La vie de famille est agréable.

Ce qui signifie que c’est exactement le bon moment pour un grand remaniement domestique. Mais l’ex de Sam réapparaît à l’endroit le plus inattendu. Un tueur escalade leur balcon lors d’une réunion de famille. Et peut-être que ces deux événements ont quelque chose à voir avec le témoin qui a disparu un an plus tôt. Leur joie conjugale vient d’en prendre un coup, mais Jory ne laissera personne lui retirer sa famille. Avant de savoir ce que c’est d’avoir un foyer, il aurait pris ses jambes à son cou. Mais plus maintenant. Il sait que Sam et lui doivent affronter les choses ensemble, parce que c’est la seule façon dont ils pourront s’en sortir.

Cloister Witte hat eine dunkle Vergangenheit und einen niedlichen Hund. Über den Hund redet er immer gern, doch seine von einem verschwundenen Bruder, einem nichtsnutzigen Vater und einem kriminellen Stiefvater überschattete Kindheit lässt er lieber in Montana. Heute gehört er zur Hundestaffel des San Diego Sheriff’s Department und entrichtet seinen Tribut an die Geister seiner Vergangenheit, indem er tut, was niemand für seinen Bruder tun konnte: Er findet die Vermissten und bringt sie heim.

Er besitzt ein Talent dafür, schwierige Fälle zu lösen. Der Hund erst recht.

Diesmal handelt es sich bei der vermissten Person um einen zehnjährigen Jungen, der mitten in der Nacht in den Wald ging und nicht zurückkehrte. Mit der feindselig angehauchten Hilfe des ablenkend gut aussehenden FBI-Agenten Javi Merlo findet er schnell heraus, dass Drew Hartley nicht einfach fortlief. Er wurde entführt und die Spuren deuten darauf hin, dass er nicht das erste Opfer ist. Als die Suche voranschreitet, werden alte Bitterkeit und Tragödien der Vergangenheit ans Licht gezerrt. Gleichzeitig scheint es mit jedem neuen Hinweis weniger wahrscheinlich, dass Drew lebend gefunden werden kann.

Rescues are wild in the Alaskan terrain. So is romance.

Sun-kissed California guardsman Dan Farnsworth might be at home in the water, but he’s out of his element at remote, rugged, and freezing Staggered Cove Station. Acclimating proves hard enough, but he’s also digging into how the station’s previous rescue swimmer was lost at sea. Was it an operation gone bad or something more sinister? Add to that the instant tension between him and his partner—no-nonsense Alaska-born Karl Radin—and Dan has his hands full.

As his investigation heats up, so does the attraction between Dan and Karl, even if they don’t completely trust each other. But as suspicious events escalate to sabotage, Dan starts to fear that he and Karl won’t get the chance to become more than reluctant coworkers.

Digging Up Bones: Book One

Cloister Witte is a man with a dark past and a cute dog. He’s happy to talk about the dog all day, but after growing up in the shadow of a missing brother, a deadbeat dad, and a criminal stepfather, he’d rather leave the past back in Montana. These days he’s a K-9 officer in the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and pays a tithe to his ghosts by doing what no one was able to do for his brother—find the missing and bring them home.

He’s good at solving difficult mysteries. The dog is even better. 

This time the missing person is a ten-year-old boy who walked into the woods in the middle of the night and didn’t come back. With the antagonistic help of distractingly handsome FBI agent Javi Merlo, it quickly becomes clear that Drew Hartley didn’t run away. He was taken, and the evidence implies he’s not the kidnapper’s first victim. As the search intensifies, old grudges and tragedies are pulled into the light of day. But with each clue they uncover, it looks less and less likely that Drew will be found alive.

Serie Marshals, Libro 1

Il vicesceriffo federale Miro Jones è noto per la sua capacità di conservare la calma e il sangue freddo anche quando si trova sotto tiro. Queste qualità sono fondamentali per lavorare con il suo fenomenale partner, Ian Doyle, il tipo d’uomo in grado di scatenare un litigio in una stanza vuota. Nei tre anni trascorsi a lavorare e rischiare la vita insieme, il loro rapporto è cresciuto: dall’essere due sconosciuti sono diventati colleghi, e infine compagni di squadra affiatati e migliori amici. Miro nutre una fiducia cieca nell’uomo che gli copre le spalle, e forse qualcosa di più.

Tutti si aspettano che Ian, come sceriffo e soldato, prenda il comando, tuttavia la forza e l’autocontrollo che lo hanno portato al successo sul campo non funzionano negli altri ambiti della sua vita. Ian ha sempre trovato scuse per rifiutare qualsiasi legame, ma non avere né una casa né qualcuno da cui tornare lo sta lentamente divorando dentro. Col tempo, si è costretto ad ammettere che senza il suo partner non vale la pena andare da nessuna parte. Adesso tocca a Miro convincerlo che farsi catturare dai lacci del cuore non significa essere prigionieri.
