    Synopsis
    In the 17th century, in an alternate universe, much of Europe, Asia, and the New World are part of an Empire ruled from England. The Order of Crown, Shield, and Dragon is a legion of special agents for the Crown: special emissaries in time of peace, and invincible warriors in more violent times. They carry special weapons: swords, each of which contains the soul of someone of great power. Even in the hands of a knight of the Order, even wielded in the cause of righteousness, a red sword is terribly dangerous to its owner and all around him. In less virtuous hands, a red sword is the most dangerous and powerful weapon known to mankind. Now, three knights of the Order have just tracked down a previously unknown red sword which was found on a Grecian shore, and which shows all signs of having been recently forged. Worse, the mind encased in the sword remembers that it was only one of many which were cached in the hold of a mysterious sailing ship, origin unknown.

    Grand Master of crime fiction Dorothy Salisbury Davis delivers a thrilling tale of Cold War-era espionage and murder. One afternoon in Manhattan's Washington Square Park, Eric Mather is approached by two men, Tom and Jerry, with a business proposal: a bit of light espionage that may be considered treason. Eric's friend and colleague, physics professor Peter Bradley, is on his way back from an international conference in Athens. In his briefcase is a roll of film that must be confiscated to keep the Cold War from turning hot. Bradley won't miss this little roll of film, they say, and nobody will get hurt. When Bradley is stabbed to death in an apartment on East Tenth Street, Eric realizes he has made a bargain with the wrong people. Desperate to make up for betraying his friend, he ventures into a shadowy world of danger and intrigue as he sets out to learn everything he can about Tom and Jerry - two foreign agents engaged in an atomic game of cat and mouse.

    Synopsis
    The United States has long congratulated itself on being the world’s melting pot, but during a long, hot summer in coastal North Carolina, three young people will put that theory to the test. Our protagonist is Tillmann, a German vacationing in the States and corresponding with both his ex-girlfriend about the genesis of techno and an African American colleague about their research into the evolution of blues music. Over the course of the season, the trio’s discussions range from Mariah Carey to Ronald Reagan, from the Black Power movement to the legacy of Nazi Germany. And as a hurricane churns across the Atlantic, their exploration of how ethnicity, race, and gender are defined—particularly for America’s African and Jewish diasporas—will culminate in revelations about their own ethnic identities. Through the eyes of our three narrators, readers will explore the ideas of ethnicity and multiculturalism in our world, illustrated by humorous and poignant anecdotes woven into a single compelling narrative. Thomas Meinecke’s groundbreaking writing style is on full display here, as the writer-DJ has crafted this insightful novel with the same uncanny skill with which jazz and blues musicians create their improvisational styles.

    Synopsis
    With all the continents overrun by the living dead, the hubs of commerce and civilization are no longer New York or London or Beijing: they’re Nantucket, Havana, and Reykjavik. The sea is not the deadly, foreboding barrier it once was to human life: now it’s their source of safety, transportation, and sustenance. But the mainland beckons reckless, restless men, just as the sea did hundreds of years before, luring them with the promise of riches and danger. Sailing from Nantucket, the Hyperion takes six foragers on such a quest: Jacob, the scarred captain who lost half his right hand to the dead; Ridley, a young man full of curiosity and naiveté; King, a devout Christian who tries to keep the captain’s madness in check; Sink, who seems to thrive on the casual brutality of their trade; Phil, for whom this is just the best job to support his family in this strange, violent world; and Spider, a boy raised in the post-apocalyptic world, barely aware any other kind of life ever existed. Their journey takes them back to the land from which they’ve been banished, to steal back from the hungry dead all the things people once took for granted, the remnants of human art and ingenuity, before these are completely lost in the decaying ruins. But this time, they will find not just fuel and tools and weapons, but cities full of dead who are smarter, better prepared, and with their own mysterious agenda.

    “As a young writer, all I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me.” — Dean KoontzTravis McGee’s old football buddy Tush Bannon is resisting pressure to sell off his floundering motel and marina to a group of influential movers and shakers. Then he’s found dead. For a big man, Tush was a pussycat: devoted to his wife and three kids and always optimistic about his business—even when things were at their worst. So although his death is ruled a suicide, McGee suspects murder...and a vile conspiracy.“Travis McGee is the last of the great knights-errant: honorable, sensual, skillful, and tough.” — Donald WestlakeTush Bannon was in the wrong spot at the wrong time. His measly plot of land just so happened to sit right in the middle of a rich parcel of five hundred riverfront acres that big-money real estate interests decided they simply must have.It didn’t matter that Tush was a nice guy with a family, or that he never knew he was dealing with a criminal element. They squashed him like a bug and walked away, counting their change. But one thing they never counted on: The gentle giant had a not-so-gentle friend in Travis McGee. And now he’s going to make them pay.“John D. MacDonald was a writer way ahead of his time, and his Travis McGee books are as entertaining, insightful, and suspenseful today as the moment I first read them.” — John Saul

Earl pledges that if Sam is not back by a certain time, he will come looking for him.What they encounter there is something beyond their wildest imagining of evil.

But nothing in town compares to the prison. Run by an aging madman with insane theories of racial purity, it is administered by a brutal sergeant known as Bigboy. The convicts call him The Whip Man—he can take a man’s soul with his nine feet of braided catgut.Both Sam and Earl will be challenged to the limits of their strength by this place and will struggle not only for their own survival, but with the question: What does a man do when confronted with evil?
