The #1 bestselling new mystery series of the past decade comes roaring back with 3rd Degree, a shockingly suspenseful thriller featuring the Women's Murder Club. One of James Patterson's best loved heroines is about to die. Detective Lindsay Boxer is jogging along a beautiful San Francisco street when a fiery explosion rips through the neighborhood. A town house owned by an Internet millionaire is immediately engulfed in flames, and when Lindsay plunges inside to search for survivors, she finds three people dead. An infant who lived in the house cannot be found - and a mysterious message at the scene leaves Lindsay and the San Francisco Police Department completely baffled. Then a prominent businessman is found murdered under bizarre circumstances, with another mysterious message left behind by the killer. Lindsay asks her friends Claire Washburn of the medical examiner's office, Assistant D.A. Jill Bernhardt, and Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas to help her figure out who is committing these murders-and why they are intent on killing someone every three days. Even more terrifying, the killer has targeted one of the four friends who call themselves the Women's Murder Club. Which one will it be? While the investigation rages furiously, Lindsay works very closely with a federal officer assigned to the case. At the same time, she learns that one member of the Women's Murder Club is hiding a secret so dangerous and unbelievable that it could destroy them all.

International bestselling author Paullina Simons delivers a riveting novel about a young woman whose search for her missing friend turns into a life-shattering odyssey. The truth will change her forever. Living in bustling New York City, Lily Quinn has plenty of distractions and is struggling to finish college as well as pay her rent. But that all pales in comparison when Amy, her best friend and roommate, disappears without a trace. Spencer O’Malley, a cynical NYPD detective assigned to Amy’s case, immediately captures Lily’s attention. Though he is wary and wrestling with his own demons, he, too, is irresistibly drawn to Lily. But fate has more in store for Lily than she ever expected. As she looks deeper into the mystery surrounding Amy’s disappearance, Lily finds answers she never imagined she’d find—answers that challenge everything she knows about her own life. Lily’s search puts her on a collision course with tragedy and love, and gives her a glimpse into the abyss that swallowed her friend . . . until she faces a final confrontation with her own life-changing destiny. “Part mystery, part romance, part family drama . . . in other words, the perfect book.”—Daily Mail

If you've ever seen an episode of Law and Order, you can probably recite your Miranda rights by heart. But you likely don't know that these rights had their roots in the case of a young Chinese man accused of murdering three diplomats in Washington DC in 1919. A frantic search for clues and dogged interrogations by gumshoes erupted in sensational news and editorial coverage and intensified international pressure on the police to crack the case. Part murder mystery, part courtroom drama, and part landmark legal case, The Third Degree is the true story of a young man's abuse by the Washington police and an arduous, seven-year journey through the legal system that drew in Warren G. Harding, William Howard Taft, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John W. Davis, and J. Edgar Hoover. The ordeal culminated in a sweeping Supreme Court ruling penned by Justice Louis Brandeis that set the stage for the Miranda warning many years later. Scott D. Seligman argues that the importance of the case hinges not on the defendant's guilt or innocence but on the imperative that a system that presumes one is innocent until proven guilty provides protections against coerced confessions. Today, when the treatment of suspects between arrest and trial remains controversial, when bias against immigrants and minorities in law enforcement continues to deny them their rights, and when protecting individuals from compulsory self-incrimination is still an uphill battle, this century-old legal spellbinder is a cautionary tale that reminds us how we got where we are today and makes us wonder how far we have yet to go.

For going on three years and during whirlwind journeys on three continents, Georgetown Professor Alexander Avalov has been entrapped by a series of terrorist plots menacing Western cities, institutions and populations. The first had threatened the West’s major cities with chemical warfare; the second, aimed to assassinate the leader of the Free World. Now, he finds himself in the middle of yet another terrorist conspiracy that’s aimed at assassinating the Pope, if not bringing an end to the world as we know it. In that journey, Alex is yet again faced with whether our Fate dooms us to repeat our past mistakes. Whether Free Will can lead us to a more enlightened state. Or, whether there is some other power at work to influence both. In One to the 3rd Degree - The Shroud of Turin Conspiracy Alex finds himself up against the "A-Team" in ISIS-controlled Syria and Iraq. He soon discovers they are orchestrating a complex series of events that will lead him to harrowing urban battles in Rome and Turin, then, in the Middle East. Led by ISIS Caliph Amir al Rashid, terrorist cells in Europe have already launched deadly attacks on Christian Churches and artifacts involving John the Baptist, while the Islamic State has kidnapped, then, begun executing by beheading Western journalists for their modern day “crimes.” Amir taunts the U.S.-led allies and their intelligence communities with prophecies and warnings of more attacks and executions to come. And, Alex is again asked to decipher their true meaning. Is the ISIS war on Baptist artifacts and Western journalists a mere ruse to cover a much deeper and more sinister plot? By now, of course, Professor Avalov is a seasoned veteran of terrorist warfare. He has access to the best military, diplomatic and intelligence money can buy in trying to find the location of the ISIS “death camp.” Even the Roman Pope and the earlier prophecies of a ‘Lady in White’ are in his corner. But, is it enough when confronting the darkest forces of evil known to mankind? Are the early clues based on the events and numerological significance contained in the Bible and Quran adequate guide posts? Will the controversial political theorist's knack for interpreting the historical numbers in the Scriptures and Ancient Texts ... and perhaps with guidance from that inner voice, a “family gift” ... again come to his aid? And, in the end, will the reluctant American hero who never asked for any of this, be able to endure the ultimate fear of being crucified a second time in the desert? Time is especially running out, when ISIS announced the kidnapping and planned execution of Joe Morgenthau, the New York Times columnist, who had earlier saved Alex’s life in the Arabian desert. As in his earlier exploits, Alex, Mr. Numerology,” is again joined by his siblings in fighting the determined terrorists ... and now trying to return a favor by saving Joe. Enter Jonathan, the Secret Service Agent assigned by the White House to help its CIA operatives investigate events in the Middle East; Alyssia, the DOJ attaché to the U.S. Ambassador in Rome; and Jenavieve, the NSA’s chief cryptologist and expert de-coder. Good friend and colleague Professor Maria Angelini is also on board to better understand the nature of the Baptist artifacts. As is the CIA’s closest example of a 007 Robert “Scar” Scarsborough. A surprise helping hand would come from Alex’s influential father and Big Law attorney Mike Avalov, whose representation of a kidnapped journalist’s family would make possible a final show down in the desert between Amir’s ISIS and Alex, along with his Marine-led assault team.
