“Brother William of Baskerville is sent to investigate a wealthy Italian abbey whose monks are suspected of heresy. When his mission is overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths patterned on the book of Revelation, Brother William turns detective, following the trail of a conspiracy that brings him face-to-face with the abbey’s labyrinthine secrets, the subversive effects of laughter, and the medieval Inquisition. Caught in a power struggle between the emperor he serves and the pope who rules the Church, Brother William comes to see that what is at stake is larger than any mere political dispute–that his investigation is being blocked by those who fear imagination, curiosity, and the power of ideas.”

“Phillip Barkley, the disillusioned protagonist of this nifty political thriller, has been sidelined as an investigator at the Justice Department since he blew the whistle on a fundraising scandal on Capitol Hill. About to chuck his pretense of a job and head to the West Coast to restart his life, he’s still grieving the death of his daughter when Martin Green, the aide to a presidential hopeful, goes missing in what might be the kind of breach of national security that could destroy Warren Young’s hopes for higher office. When Green’s body is found, Phillip is assigned to work with an ambitious young FBI agent who’s too politically naive to understand that she and Barkley are supposed to close the case before it can taint Young’s campaign, not find out who framed Green and why. But whoever it is that doesn’t think they’ve gotten the message will do whatever’s necessary to keep Phillip from stumbling on the same truth that got Green killed–including killing again. Double-dealing abounds in this well-written, fast-paced story, which has as many twists and turns as the road to the White House.”

Hieronymus (Harry) Bosch–former hero cop bumped from the L.A. homicide desk to the lowly Beverly Hills squad–gets the call on a drug death at Mulholland Dam. Harry recognizes the corpse as that of a fellow soldier in Vietnam; both were “tunnel rats” who searched for Viet Cong in the network of burrows beneath Vietnamese villages. Investigation connects his old pal to an unsolved bank job–the vault was tunneled into from the storm drains below–and Harry takes his information to the FBI. The Bureau alerts the LAPD, which reactivates internal affairs surveillance (the previous IAD episode is explained throughout the narrative), only to have the FBI backtrack and request Harry as liaison on the case. Paired with beautiful FBI agent Eleanor Wish, Harry makes sense of the Vietnam connection to the bank job–a discovery that puts them both in danger from deadly ex-Marines and a powerful insider from either the LAPD or the FBI itself.

Dana Evans is a spunky, good-looking, young Washington TV journalist who’s recently returned to the nation’s capital from the Balkans, where she adopted a handicapped war orphan who’s having trouble adjusting to life in America. But that doesn’t keep Dana from following a story all over the world, from Washington to Aspen, Nice, Juneau, Dusseldorf, Rome, Brussels, Moscow, and Siberia. Each of these brief visits is like a postcard–a local landmark or two, an interesting local restaurant (at least in the European venues), and another piece of the puzzle, which has to do with why every member of a venerable, old Washington dynasty has died a violent death in the last year. It seems strange that in a media-savvy city like Washington, no one but Dana has noticed there’s a pattern in the rapid extinction of the Winthrops or even whispered the words family vendetta. But that’s why pretty, young girl TV reporters were invented…

Paul Murray is a junior bond trader. New to the job, he’s keen to make a good impression – but how far does he have to go? When the corpse of Debbie Chater, a vivacious colleague, is found floating in the Thames, Paul’s world is turned upside down. And when his crusade for an explanation results in his being framed for murder, accused of insider trading and left to find twenty million dollars by lunchtime, Paul’s got to find some answers – fast – before someone else makes a killing.

Generations in the future, when humanity has spread to other planets and Earth is ruled by Sanctity, a dour, coercive religion that looks to resurrection of the body by storing cell samples of its communicants, a plague is threatening to wipe out mankind. The only planet that seems to be spared is Grass, so-called because that is virtually all that grows there. It was settled by families of European nobility who live on vast estancias and indulge in the ancient sport of fox hunting–although the horses, hounds and foxes aren’t what they what they appear to be.

It is 1988, and the American research vessel Fanning II is conducting underwater tests off the coast of Greece when it discovers traces of the Dakar , an Israeli submarine lost in 1967. The Dakar so concerns U.S. intelligence that a file, code-named Bright Shark, remains open after 20 years. Nor is America the only interested party. As Navy lieutenant Edna Haddix and Department of Energy troubleshooter Wendell Trent seek to solve the Dakar ‘s mystery, Israel and the U.S.S.R. join forces to preserve the submarine’s secret–at the price of direct confrontation with the U.S.

And it’s travelling so fast that the civilized world can do nothing to stop it. Isolated in the tropical rainforests of South America, researchers doing genetic experiments on monkeys find startling success. Something is making the macaques evolve faster…

Not only must they flee the relentless pursuit of the Invincibles, the Sultan’s deadly lancers, but they must defeat subterranean behemoths and jealous desert jii, rabid gnoles and cruel necromancers…and worse.
