Gone Fishing by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child Gone Fishing is the first short story Preston and Child have written together, and the first time Lieutenant Vincent D’Agosta appears without Special Agent Pendergast. The story begins with the theft of a priceless Inca sacrificial knife from the Museum of Natural History and ends twenty-four hours later in a clearing in the woods of northern New Hampshire, amidst a scene of transcendental horror. Other Stories Dirty Weather by Gregg Hurwitz As a deputy U.S. Marshal tasked with transporting inmates and hunting down fugitives, Gregg Hurwitz's protagonist, Tim Rackley grapples with issues of vigilantism—justice versus the law—and an ever-evolving perspective. In the course of his research, Hurwitz himself spent time behind bars, getting to know the men and women who keep the prisons running. Dirty Weather was inspired by them. Face in the Window by Heather Graham Heather Graham is known for creating locations that live and breathe—becoming as much a character in her books as the people who propel them. She works in several venues, including vampire, historical, ghost and suspense. Whatever time or place she's dealing in, Graham loves to keep her readers on edge. With The Face in the Window she takes characters from her thriller, The Island, and sets them in the midst of an unexpected storm with unexpected consequences. Spirit Walker by David Dun Technology and its ills, together with Native American mysticism, contrasts two worlds often at war—science versus back-to-nature values. Many of Dun’s novels have involved characters from Tilok tribe, which, although fictional, is in many respects based on various factual accounts of Native American life, lore, myth, history and religion. Kier Wintripp was Dun's first, and perhaps most striking, Tilok character. A superb woodsman and tracker, a guide to youth, a teacher of the forest arts, he's also a doctor of veterinary medicine. This is the story of how he became a Spirit Walker. Goodnight, Sweet Mother by Alex Kava One aspect of the Maggie O'Dell series that readers often comment on is the relationship between Maggie and her mother. It can best be described as challenging and confrontational, and definitely a far cry from what we perceive as a typical mother-daughter relationship. And yet, just like in real life there remains a bond, though sometimes unexplainable and often irrational. Here, in Goodnight, Sweet Mother, Kava takes Maggie and her mother on a road trip to illustrate that relationships, as well as perceptions, aren't always what they appear to be.
