A young woman has gone missing in Silicon Valley and her father has hired Colter Shaw to find her. The son of a survivalist family, Shaw is an expert tracker. Now he makes a living as a "reward seeker," traveling the country to help police solve crimes and private citizens locate missing persons. But what seems a simple investigation quickly thrusts him into the dark heart of America's tech hub and the cutthroat billion-dollar video-gaming industry. When another victim is kidnapped, the clues point to one video game with a troubled past--The Whispering Man. In that game, the player has to survive after being abandoned in an inhospitable setting with five random objects. Is a madman bringing the game to life? Shaw finds himself caught in a cat-and-mouse game, risking his own life to save the victims even as he pursues the kidnapper across both Silicon Valley and the dark 'net. Encountering eccentric game designers, trigger-happy gamers and ruthless tech titans, he soon learns that he isn't the only one on the hunt: someone is on his trail and closing fast.

"The master of ticking-bomb suspense" (People) returns with a devilishly good thriller, and reward seeker Colter Shaw's most personal case to date. Just hours after the harrowing events of The Never Game and The Goodbye Man, Colter Shaw finds himself in San Francisco, where he has taken on the mission his father began years ago: finding a missing courier bag containing evidence that will bring down a corporate espionage firm responsible for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of deaths. Following the enigmatic clues his father left behind, Shaw plays cat and mouse with the company's sadistic enforcers, as he speeds from one gritty neighborhood in the City by the Bay to another. Suddenly, the job takes on a frightening urgency: Only by finding the courier bag can he expose the company and stop the murder of an entire family--slated to die in forty-eight hours. With the help of an unexpected figure from his past, and with the enforcers closing the net, Shaw narrows in on the truth--and learns that the courier bag contains something unexpected: a secret that could only be described as catastrophic. Filled with dozens of twists and reversals, The Final Twist is a nonstop race against time to save the family.... and to keep the devastating secret Shaw has uncovered from falling into the wrong hands.

Amir, Los, and Ashely had been friends for as long as they could remember. They had formed a bond that was rare for people that lived in separate households and were not blood related. Los’s family ties to a dangerous organization in California connected the three friends to the streets where they eventually formed their own organization. The Black Border Brothers was formed, and Amir and Los maneuvered drugs, weapons, and currency through the dregs of the streets in Kansas and Missouri. With success comes jealousy, deceit, and hatred. Their organization began colliding with others, and they were forced to defend what they had built at all costs. The M.O.P. was a major factor in Kansas City, the Italians were the Black Border Brothers gateway to receiving their drugs, and the Jamaicans were funding their foes with loads of currency. These three organizations were a constant threat to their survival. Through all of this, the three friends struggled with their relationships and attempted to balance their personal lives with the murder and mayhem that the Black Border Brothers were causing in the streets. They also struggled with remaining friends through their fears, dreams, and adversities. Amir and Los were two males with conflicting personalities, and it was difficult to remember the blood pact they had forged as children when money, sex, and murder was a constant distraction in Kansas City- the dangerous place that they called home.

To Julian N. Hartt, our writers are the ÒrealÓ creators of human history. It is they who from their imagination and their heritage fashion works that reflect as well as guide man's destiny. And their art, rather than science or philosophy, is the realm through which this theologian traces the present human condition. Hartt maintains that we have, for better or for worse, cancelled our heritage. Just how we have done so can be seen in the negation, death, and transfiguration in contemporary fiction of traditional images by which man has always ÒseenÓ himself: the epic image, the dream of innocence, the erotic image, and the eschatological image. To illustrate, the epic is now the anti-epic Ulysses, while our shattered dream of innocence is best described in Faulkner's Light in August and Camus' The Fall. Hartt sees the traditional marriage of flesh and spirit in the erotic image now modified to the concept of sexuality as a divine power in Lawrence, as totally blighted in Styron, cramping in Moravia, and as a possible pathway to creativity in Durrell. In his discussion of the eschatological image, Hartt asks what is perhaps the most crucial of questions: ÒHas the hope for that Great Tomorrow of biblical disclosure--the appearing in glory of the perfected community--become too feeble, dim, remote, to minister to the frenzy, terror, and 'wisdom' of our age?Ó The Marxist of In Dubious Battle has one answer, and Koestler another. But it is in Paton's Cry, the Beloved Country that Hartt finds this hope alive and vigorously represented. The mood in which Hartt writes is not therefore lamentation, and his purpose not another flagellation of that woeful creature, Modern Man. He has not made a point of consulting only those artists who have bad news for us. Nor has he lingered long with writers animated by a desire to Òspeak comfortably to Jerusalem.Ó The curse laid against false prophecy, though uttered long ago, is still binding: ÒWoe to them who cry 'Peace! Peace!' when there is no peace.Ó

Loser or Lunatic? Kiki Villanueva and believes she had a psychic dream when she was thirteen in which she was given a list of her future husband’s attributes. Children are her life, and Kiki has good reason to think she may not have any if she doesn’t marry soon. She decides when she goes back to L.A. for the summer, she’ll start using the list to sort through potential candidates. When jaded political journalist Mark Bennett confesses to his doctor he no longer finds women—or anything else—exciting, Dr. Chuck is worried he’s depressed and suggests a change of pace. Mark agrees to write a fluff piece for a magazine about people who join high-priced dating services. His premise is "Losers or Lunatics?" The dating service introduces him to Kiki, and he’s charmed by her open, passionate nature—not to mention her big, brown “do me” eyes—though she definitely belongs in the "lunatic" category with that psychic stuff. Mark is a confirmed bachelor from a family where no one says the L-word. However, while accompanying warm, sexy Kiki on her match-making service dates for his story, he soon wonders why he’s literally driving her to the arms of other men. If he could only get her to forget her list… But Kiki’s not about to waste time on an emotionally challenged cynic who only wants to “play” and is definitely not on her list, even if he is handsome, and funny, and sexy—uh-oh!

SOON TO BE A MAJOR TELEVISION EVENT FROM NBC, STARRING RUSSELL HORNSBY, ARIELLE KEBBEL, AND MICHAEL IMPERIOLI. From New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver—Lincoln Rhyme is back, and on the trail of a killer whose weapon of choice cripples New York City with fear. The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire. When the first explosion occurs in broad daylight, reducing a city bus to a pile of molten metal, officials fear terrorism. Rhyme, a world-class forensic criminologist known for his successful apprehension of the most devious criminals, is immediately tapped for the investigation. Long a quadriplegic, he assembles NYPD detective Amelia Sachs and officer Ron Pulaski as his eyes, ears and legs on crime sites, and FBI agent Fred Dellray as his undercover man on the street. As the attacks continue across the city at a sickening pace, and terrifying demand letters begin appearing, the team works desperately against time and with maddeningly little forensic evidence to try to find the killer. Or is it killers…? Meanwhile, Rhyme is consulting on another high-profile investigation in Mexico with a most coveted quarry in his crosshairs: the hired killer known as the Watchmaker, one of the few criminals to have eluded Rhyme’s net. Juggling two massive investigations against a cruel ticking clock takes a toll on Rhyme’s health. Soon Rhyme is fighting on yet another front—and his determination to work despite his physical limitations threatens to drive away his closest allies when he needs them most…
