The tables have turned....It begins with a daring commando raid to capture a highly-specialized warship. But this time, global arms runner Pierre Renard is not the mastermind behind the crime. He’s the victim and the hijacked vessel is his hybrid combat/salvage submarine, the Goliath. In addition to its vital role in his plans, the lost sub is a stab at Renard’s heart, a reminder that even his Machiavellian schemes cannot guarantee protection against clever enemies. For the first time, he’s reacting rather than taking control, dancing on the puppet strings instead of pulling them. Leading the chase to recapture the Goliath is disgraced former US naval officer Jake Slate, once again in command of Renard’s mercenary fleet. Pitted against a crafty and deadly adversary, Slate knows that he can’t continue to defy the odds indefinitely. Sooner or later, his luck is going to run out. 1. Language: English.

When a teenage girl dies in a suspicious fire, Detective Olivia Sutherland is assigned to track down the arsonist. Then she discovers something more sinister—a vicious blackmailer who preys on young people and murders without hesitation. Making her work even harder is sexy firefighter David Hunter. He’s not only sharing the case but sparking memories of their long-ago night of passion, when feelings were left unspoken and hearts were broken. David has his own ghosts and a million regrets. But while he and Olivia try to face the wall of pain between them, a diabolical puppet master is pulling strings to make a group of twentysomethings do his bidding. Soon Olivia and David are scouring the city for a calculating criminal who seems tantalizingly close—and is moving in for the kill. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marguerite Gavin.

Book four of the Rogue Submarine series: a crew of mercenary submarine sailors and an ex-US naval officer take on the largest military force on Earth. North Korea has crossed the Demilitarized Zone; the United States is hit by electromagnetic pulse attacks; and the Middle East is unraveling. Has Armageddon begun, or is a mortal puppet master pulling the strings? Regardless of the answer, the US military is too overwhelmed by global events to continue protecting Taiwan. Chinese troops have gained a foothold on Taiwanese soil, and the tiny island nation has been stripped of her allies. Faced with impending destruction, the Taiwanese will do anything to survive, even if it means crossing the line into nuclear warfare. Their plan is desperate, and quite possibly insane. There's only one man crazy enough to carry it out: former naval officer-turned renegade, Jake Slate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Christy.

An electrifying work of literary suspense from international bestselling author Katrine Engberg, this stunning debut introduces two police detectives struggling to solve a shocking murder and stop a killer hell-bent on revenge. When a young woman is discovered brutally murdered in her own apartment, with an intricate pattern of lines carved into her face, Copenhagen police detectives Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner are assigned to the case. In short order, they establish a link between the victim, Julie Stender, and her landlady, Esther de Laurenti, who's a bit too fond of drink and the host of raucous dinner parties with her artist friends. Esther also turns out to be a budding novelist—and when Julie turns up as a murder victim in the still-unfinished mystery she's writing, the link between fiction and real life grows both more urgent and more dangerous. But Esther's role in this twisted scenario is not quite as clear as it first seems. Is she the culprit—or just another victim, trapped in a twisted game of vengeance? Anette and Jeppe must dig more deeply into the two women's pasts to discover the identity of the brutal puppet-master pulling the strings in this electrifying literary thriller. Hailed as "inconceivably thrilling" (Fyens Stiftstidende, Denmark), The Tenant is a work of stunning originality that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
