Fireproof

By Alex Kava

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

International bestseller Alex Kava returns in a blaze of glory with a gripping, action-packed thriller featuring FBI special agent Maggie O'Dell.

When a building bursts into flames on a cold winter night in Washington, DC, investigators see a resemblance to a string of recent fires in the area. There is one difference, however: this one has a human casualty. The local team insists they're looking for a young white male, suffering from an uncontrollable impulse to act out his anger or sexual aggression. But when FBI special agent Maggie O'Dell is called in, everything she sees leads her to believe that this is the work of a calculating and controlled criminal.

Jeffery Cole, a reporter looking for his big break, is at the scene of the crime and decides to make Maggie part of his news piece, digging up aspects of her past that she would rather forget. As the fires continue to light up around the city, Maggie also crosses paths with her brother Patrick, now back in DC and working as a fire-fighter.

As the acts of arson become more brazen Maggie's professional and personal worlds are set on a dangerous collision course. Little does she realise that the killer may be closer than she imagines...

Killer Heat

Linda Fairstein

In District Attorney Alexandra Cooper's line of work, the discovery of a corpse isn't unusual. Not even the corpse of a young woman who was bound, bludgeoned and tortured to death. It's the location which is unusual - an abandoned Ferry Terminal at the southern tip of Manhattan. The ferries from here only went to one destination, the now uninhabited Governors Island. Also known as Ghost Island.The corpse is identified as that of a part-time prostitute with a side-line in kink and a high-end client list. A list to kill for and, clearly, to die for... but the list is missing, and so is another girl. Alex, along with Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, fear the killer will find more victims before they can identify him. And when another young woman disappears at an isolated site not far from Governor's Island, Alex has no hesitation in joining the desperate hunt for a singularly depraved murderer. A chase which catapults her into one of the most chilling encounters of her life.

Diplomacy And Diamonds

Joanne King Herring, Nancy Dorman-Hickson

She's been dirt poor, she's been filthy rich and declared that rich was more fun. She married 3 men, divorced 2 of them and found her true love only to lose him to cancer. Told at 21 she was dying - she wasn't and after being told she'd never have children, she had them! She's bargained with God, dictators and Democrats and partied with princes, presidents and actors, she's captivated powerful men with her feminine charm, then persuaded them toward unlikely political alliances through her formidable intelligence. She's danced with Prince Philip and smuggled herself in a barrel across the Pakistani border and survived a Soviet gunship attack in Afghanistan. Portrayed by Julia Roberts in Charlie Wilson's War, she is far more colourful, funny and likable than any screen writer envisaged. She's known for her improbable fight with the mujahideen against the former Soviet Union but her full story - with its God, guns and Gucci glory - has never been told. Born in Texas at a time when women had limited choices, Joanne Herring blazed a trail and in so doing forged new paths for women in Pakistan, Afghanistan and America.
