Police Action
Andrew was lucky to have been accepted into the Worlder Force. Now that nearly every country was a member, the need for standing armies had all but disappeared so the Worlder Force was quite small. Their role was more like that of a heavily armed police force than an army.

Apart from the prestige of being part of such an elite force, that was really why Andrew had joined. His chance to help, when help was what was needed. But there were a few little thorns that needed pulling out before they could concentrate fully on that. Like the drugs that were still flowing out of South America.

Amongst My Enemies
Amongst My Enemies is a fast-paced Cold War tale of action, suspense, and international intrigue that plumbs the depths of brotherhood, honor, and one man's quest for revenge.  Inside an old German U-Boat rusting on the bottom of the Baltic lay millions in gold bars, stolen art, and a secret that could tear NATO apart. The only one who knows the truth is Mike Randall, a battle-scarred waist-gunner in an American B-17, who survives four months as a POW in the frozen Hell of northern Germany at the end of the war. When he does speak up, he puts a target on his own forehead, one which the Russians, the West Germans, the U-boat's former owners, the Israeli Mossad, and even his own government quickly take aim at. Some want the gold, some want him dead, and some want proof about a high-ranking spy inside NATO itself. Randall's wants are much simpler. Caught between the Kremlin and a new, deadly, 4th Reich, he wants revenge and to repay some old debts with a steel-jacketed bullet. 

Steven LeConte has all the qualities that propel a young man to success. He is bright, handsome, charming . . . the list is long. Yet, at age 27, this scion of a prominent Connecticut family is teaching tennis in Paris. His journalistic aspirations have produced a few dazzling leads but not a single completed article. If he can take pride in one achievement, which he does not, it is the prodigious number of girls he has coaxed from the tennis club into his bed. A small inheritance from his aunt is nearly exhausted; he faces an uncertain future. As if to highlight his professional shortcomings, he has befriended his neighbor, Sophie Marx, the retired Paris bureau chief of the New York Times. In contrast to his own lack of output, her freelance articles appear at a dizzy pace in the Western world’s best newspapers and magazines. 

Sophie has just embarked on a new venture: to chronicle the life of France’s leading right-wing politician. At age 70, she is unable to do the legwork herself, and opts to involve Steven. It is an offer he can’t refuse, though he isn’t sure her plans meet even his own low moral standards. She wants him to go to the Riviera, where her subject’s daughter is spending the summer. And then? He is to follow the guiding light of his golden schwanz (her terminology) and see if he can get close to the father through 19-year-old Nicole. His initial hesitation is quickly overcome by a photograph of this ravishing beauty. How could he have said No anyway: his soul mate, Sophie, will become his protégé and unlock the doors he has not been able to open on his own. Or such is his belief. He accepts, he succeeds – and falls deeply in love.

Simultaneously, a dark remnant of the Cold War makes its debut. An unemployed KGB agent, East German Walter Claussen, has become an entrepreneur in the new free market created by the collapse of the Soviet Union. He alone controls a weapon of mass destruction that has slipped beneath the radar of American intelligence: after the Cuban missile crisis, several of the best minds in the Kremlin developed the means to sabotage American jetliners, should the US ever decide to mount a conventional war in Europe. In France, Claussen finds a group willing to buy his services for their own political and financial gain.

American passenger jets undergo a series of deadly mishaps that seem unrelated. Frank Warner, the meticulous head of air crash investigations at the NTSB, is unable to find a common thread. The public experiences a collective fear of flying as never before. In a prelude to 9/11, the economy reels and the government – helped along by Claussen – becomes a blundering pawn of its own Iraq fixation. Warner is about to be fired and the wrong culprit is about to be incinerated in an eerie foreshadowing of the future. Then, at the eleventh hour, comes Steven’s chance discovery: the usual Arab suspects are not behind the diabolical attack on American aviation. Sophie is unable to convince American government and intelligence officials of the truth, so set in their thinking are they. Near despair, with the clock running out, she remembers Frank Warner, an acquaintance from a previous collaboration. Warner, who is convinced, takes word of Steven and Sophie’s discovery to a White House briefing, only to encounter war fever so virulent the facts fall on deaf ears. 

Warner must go to France – to hell with his job description. He and Steven, in a series of harrowing surveillance attempts, come face-to-face with Claussen, a professional killer. It is a confrontation needed to prove the truth with concrete visible evidence, a confrontation in which someone must die. Can Steven, underachiever cum laude, succeed at last? And if he does, can he convince Nicole that his love for her – initially based on deception – is real? The suspense grows unbearable as we near a climax that will leave the reader emotionally spent, yet thoroughly exhilarated.

Trapped - A Novel of Terror
**There are six books in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective. ORIGIN, THE LIST, AFRAID, TRAPPED, and ENDURANCE are the first five, and can be read in any order. The sixth, HAUNTED HOUSE, contains characters from each of the previous books.**

It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal.

Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.
But Martin didn't come back. And neither did Sara when she went in search of him.
Then the laughter stopped.

The group soon began to realize that this deserted island wasn't so deserted after all. And perhaps Martin's ridiculous story had more truth to it than anyone thought.
What's the most horrifying thing you can imagine?
This is a hundred times worse..

A Word of Warning
This is the long-awaited follow-up to AFRAID, one of the most horrifying books ever written.

Dead Men Kill (Stories from the Golden Age)
B&N Link

Detective Terry Lane is a standout homicide cop who thought he’d seen it all…until now. 
As tough as Eliot Ness of The Untouchables—and just as incorruptible—Lane has seen the darkest side of human behavior.  But he’s never seen a murder spree like this, targeting the wealthy, the powerful and the privileged.  For the evidence is clear: the killers have not emerged from the seamy underside of the city…but from six feet under it.  They are the walking dead, spreading terror and showing no mercy.
Following a trail of drugs, blackmail, and the twisted clues of a seductive nightclub singer, Detective Lane will have to think outside the box…or he could end up inside one, buried alive.
In 1934, while living in New York, the heart of the publishing industry, Hubbard struck up a friendship with the city’s medical examiner—a relationship that started his education in undetectable crime and provided him with authoritative clinical background for his detective stories.

In The Shadow of Babylon

Have you ever wondered where emotions come from? 
Do you wish you could live in the present rather than thinking about the past or worrying about a future that may never come?
Do you often wish you could have more control over the direction of your life?
 Secrets revealed in the oldest writing ever discovered reach out to the present with simple but powerful life lessons.
  In The Shadow of Babylon is a story about the modern world of Jihad, terror and suffering wrapped in an ancient message of bravery, wisdom and joy. The lessons learned by the warrior poet Ayuba as he transitions from an ignorant orphan held in captivity by a band of brutal nomads into a heroic leader of an ancient country are as critical to the 21st century as they were 10,000 years ago. 
Can an ancient scroll discovered in a vault beneath Baghdad's Azzohour Palace provide the answer to Iraq's current crisis? The scroll--pre-dating Hammurabi's Code by more than 7000 years--details the life of a shepherd who became the founder of a country that existed and thrived in pre-history. It may be the most profound archeological find ever. Shortly after the first Gulf War, an ancient gold-paneled tomb is discovered in Baghdad. Dr. Elman Darshi, the world's leading Sumerian language authority, is ordered by Saddam to translate the find. Warned of Saddam's paranoia over ancient prophecies, the professor smuggles his translation to his daughter Alexandria, a doctoral student at University of California, Berkeley. Shortly after completing the translation, Dr. Darshi, his wife, and youngest daughter disappear. When Iraq is liberated and Saddam deposed, the secret tomb is rediscovered. Only Alexandria can read the esoteric writing inscribed on its walls. Together with Dr. Ibrahim Feroz, a young and handsome associate professor at University of Chicago, they present the ancient poem, called The Song of Ayuba, to the world on a global National Geographic TV special. 
When the inscribed panels are removed from the underground crypt, a scroll incased in an urn is discovered. It is an autobiography of a warrior poet named Ayuba and proves to be the oldest writing in the world. Publication of the scroll reveals profound life lessons that foment fear and anger in radical Muslims and hope for the majority throughout the Middle East.
Ayuba's message makes In the Shadow of Babylon hard to put down--each page reveals a new adventure brimming with danger. Ayuba's message echoes through several millennium. A stanza of his epic poem inscribed on the gold panels now on display in the Museum of Ancient History located on the ruins of the storied city of Babylon sums up the vision of his life.

Sleep, and in the veil of night
