Location: Los Angeles, California, USA
Book Description / Blurb

FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail. Alex quickly learns that this is not an isolated incident. The killer, known as Mary Smith, has done this before and plans to kill again. Right from the beginning, this case is like nothing Alex has ever confronted. Is this the plan of an obsessed fan or a spurned actor, or is it part of something much more frightening? And particularly baffling, how could a woman be capable of these vicious crimes? Members of Hollywood's A-list fear they're next on Mary's list, and the case grows by blockbuster proportions as the LAPD and FBI scramble to find a pattern before Mary can send one more chilling update. Filled with the ruthless and shocking twists that make his fans hunger for more, MARY, MARY is James Patterson's most sophisticated thriller yet.

Book Description / Blurb

Two magical families live in the hardscrabble town of Stonefort, Maine: the shape shifting Morgans and the Haskell witches. But evil is coming to Stonefort. A drug lord and frighteningly powerful sorcerer covets the Morgans' alliance with the magical being known as the Dragon. Now 17-year-old Gary Morgan must claim his heritage and save his family. But first, he will have to master the power of the Dragon-and he'll need the help of the Haskell witches to do it. Somehow, the Haskells and the Morgans must overcome their differences before the sorcerer assumes the power of the Dragon and destroys them all.

Series: Birthright Project # 1
Book Description / Blurb

Delivered through the Arctic ice by a whale, they arrive in protective husks-their journey nothing short of miraculous, their mission nothing short of impossible. Finding themselves on the surface of the Earth for the first time, they rely purely on Faith for provisions, strength, and direction. Outriders Brady, Kendo, and Niki must fight to reclaim God's birthright.

When new Rooks arrive from The Ark, the battle turns into something no one expected. Not only must they battle the megalomaniac, mad-scientist of a foe, Baron Alrod, but a new more powerful enemy has revealed itself, threatening to destroy the world they've been asked to save.

Outriders delivers a unique world filled with supernatural intrigue, environmental significance, and suspenseful battles. For high school and college-age readers, this is a fantasy thriller with a heart of hope and adventure.

Book Description / Blurb

Jenna Wade is a cool, aloof, self-contained woman, definitely not the type to fall easily for any man. Yet, she finds herself doing just that when an injured stranger is admitted to the ICU where she works. Crossing her own social taboos and violating Cael's deeply ingrained cultural conditioning, she takes advantage of him while he lies semi-conscious in her bed - resulting in an irreversible Empathic bonding and setting in motion a series of events that find her transported from her isolated existence into the completely different reality of Camarrhan, a parallel world of magic. Cael, the man she saved from certain death, is one of the land's gifted Empaths. Having "stolen" his bond, Jenna finds herself permanently entangled in Cael's life. Cael, angry and betrayed, tries to ignore the inexorable pull of the Dragon's bond. Together with Cael's Wayfinder, Verra, and his bondbrother, Telsen, the couple find themselves in a battle to save the magics of Camarrhan. And unless Cael can conquer his resistance to Jenna, her future - and the future of Camarrhan - may be grim indeed.

Book Description / Blurb

Give Canada’s Master Warrant Officer Jenny Casey an inch and she’ll take a galaxy. That’s just the kind of person a world on the brink of destruction needs. The year is 2063, and Earth has been brutalized. An asteroid flung at Toronto by the PanChinese government has killed tens of millions and left the equivalent of a nuclear explosion in its wake. Humanity must find another option....

Perched above the devastation in the starship Montreal, Jenny is still in the thick of the fray. Plugged into the Worldwire, connected to a brilliant AI, her mind can be everywhere and anywhere at once. But it’s focused on the mysterious alien beings right outside her ship. Are they there to help–or destroy? With Earth a breeding ground for treason and betrayal as governments struggle to assign blame, Jenny holds the fate of humankind in her artificially reconstructed hand....
