Author Spotlight

Rodman Philbrick

The most striking, gritty arrival of a handicapped sleuth since the appearance of Jack Livingston's deaf private-eye in A Piece of Silence.

Kirkus Reviews on Shadow Kills

Shadow Kills

Listen, Jack Hawkins, and listen well... Mystery writer Jack Hawkins thinks it's just an oddbail prank caller reciting a quote from one of his detective novels. It is actually the beginning of a nightmare. You have just committed murder. You have killed to come alive. +More J.D. Hawkins Mysteries


INTELLIGENCE OF THE DOLPHIN, HUNGER OF THE SHARK: ISURUS MAXIMUS. Genetically-engineered sharks designed to have the intelligence of a dolphin. Twenty feet long. Two thousand pounds of cartilage and teeth and muscle, bigger and meaner than any great white. +More Books by Rodman Philbrick

The Crystal Blue Persuasion

The Rosario, a Spanish galleon loaded with gold, sank four centuries ago off the Florida Keys. Now a, smooth-as-silk-tongued treasure hunter named Harper King said he had the key to finding that fortune, with a lot of other people's money. And it was up to T.D. Stash to put on his sleuthing cap, climb into diving gear, and plunge into the depths. +More T.D. Stash Mysteries

The Neon Flamingo

T.D. Stash thought he had seen everything in anything-goes Key West. But the laid-back fishing guide, sometimes private eye, was wrong. And unless he got to the bottom of drugs, deceit, greed and sex, he would wind up dead... +More T.D. Stash Mysteries

Bawdy House Showdown

San Francisco should be big enough and rich enough to support another bawdy house—especially one being run by Jared Bolt. But getting girls to staff it seems to be a problem... Bolt's search takes him from the drawing rooms and bedrooms of the City's top society into an underworld of white slavery. All Bolt wants is some women interested in steady work and a share of the profits. The slavers, though, have other ideas, and the girls don't count for much in their plans.

Flowers for Bill O'Reilly

In post WW2 Chicago, private eye Richard Stone goes to a small idyllic town to recover the body of an old friend struck down by a car. Stone's late pal had been on hard times, drinking, working odd jobs, and his death seemed tragic but understandable. Understandable at least until Stone learns the body isn't available, and no investigation into the circumstances was made. Stone's own investigation leads to a shocking experiment at a country estate more out of Edgar Allan Poe than Norman Rockwell.


Ever since the elite 201st Special Operations Wing was disbanded for dispensing their own brand of international antiterrorism, Major Tommy Gunn has been a man without a mission. And the world is without hope, as rumors of global destruction throw the people into a panic.

The Empty

Welcome to the world of the reyaqc, a people who have no inherent characteristics of their own, but survive by infusing genetic information from humans and animals alike, often leaving the donors hollow, vacant shells. They've been with us for centuries. Many live in isolated communities on the fringes of society. Others walk the cities of the world, unable to reveal their true natures for risk of discovery.



Nameless is called in by his friend, police lieutenant Eberhardt, when a dead woman's purse contains Nameless's business card. Nameless has never met her, and cannot make a connection. Next, Nameless is hired to track and protect a disturbed man, Martin Talbot, who may be harmed by the husband of a woman who died when Talbot's car collided with theirs after Talbot fell asleep at the wheel. But despite keeping a close tail, things go horribly wrong.

Chopper Pilot

From the thundering B-52 bombing raids on Hanoi to inserting search-and-destroys in the jungle, from wielding a death-spewing Spooky to taking out SAM missile sights in the North, the skies above Vietnam were a hell of deadly million-dollar machinery, split-second decisions, and death-lock engagements with the enemy. Now nineteen-year-old David Anderson is a raw pilot in an Assault Helicopter Company, slamming straight into the strength of the VC.


In the deadly world of modern warfare, the art of combat is taken to its awesome limits. Only one fighting unit has the skill and ruthlessness to handle all this killing power, making every corner of the globe its field of fire; using with chilling efficiency every method of infiltration, demolition, deception and destruction this side of Hell. They're Navy. Those who know about them speak in awed whispers of the men they call the SEALS


Secret Service agent John Quincannon has found little joy in his life since the day his stray bullet killed an innocent young woman and her unborn child. Still in mourning a year later, Quincannon seeks his solace at the bottom of a jug of sour mash. But he'll have to buck up—and sober up—for his next mission: The Service needs him to bring down a major counterfeiting ring responsible for the death of one of his colleagues. And staying sober won't be easy when there's a young lady in town who's a dead ringer for his late victim...

The Inheritors of Earth

John Thomas Rourke's world is now roughly one-third of what it was; everything above latitude 35° north and below latitude 35° south is encased in glacial ice. The geography drastically changed but little else did. Maniacs and evil had still tried to dominate those who wanted to be free.

Ageless Arm

Fueled by a passion for baseball at an early age, Rod engaged in a lifetime journey that took him from a right-handed toddler to a left-handed pitcher at the age of two. He progressed from the Little League fields in Santa Fe, New Mexico to a professional minor league career that covered three countries.

Dead Man's Fire

A fun-filled romp of action and wit, The Marc Huntington Adventures chronicle the exploits of adventurers Marc and Dana Huntington as they race from one deadly situation to another in search of missing persons, stolen prizes, and maybe even financial gain. That is, if they survive the day.


Zoe Crane puts her hand on a magic crystal ball. After a strange, star-tossed dream she wakes on a different planet. This is a parallel world on the other end of the universe, full of cars with running boards and gangsters wearing pin striped suits. Here she meets Joshua Kendal district attorney; handsome, intelligent, and rich.
