Conspiracy: Peter Thiel, Hulk Hogan, Gawker, and the Anatomy of Intrigue
by Ryan Holiday (Author)

A stunning story about how power works in the modern age–the book the New York Times called “one helluva page-turner” and The Sunday Times of London celebrated as “riveting…an astonishing modern media conspiracy that is a fantastic read.” Pick up the book everyone is talking about.

In 2007, a short blogpost on Valleywag, the Silicon Valley-vertical of Gawker Media, outed PayPal founder and billionaire investor Peter Thiel as gay. Thiel’s sexuality had been known to close friends and family, but he didn’t consider himself a public figure, and believed the information was private.

This post would be the casus belli for a meticulously plotted conspiracy that would end nearly a decade later with a $140 million dollar judgment against Gawker, its bankruptcy and with Nick Denton, Gawker’s CEO and founder, out of a job. Only later would the world learn that Gawker’s demise was not incidental–it had been masterminded by Thiel.

While Edie is leading two tourists on a hunting expedition, one of them is shot and killed. The Council wants to call it an accident, but Edie and police sergeant Derek Palliser suspect otherwise. When the other tourist disappears, Edie sets off into the far reaches of the tundra for answers.

A stunning debut novel, White Heat launches a formidable new series set amidst an unforgiving landscape of ice and rock, of spirit ancestors, and never-rotting bones.

Kickass Sidekicks: Murder Mysteries With Detective Duos
by Julie Smith (Author), Adrienne Barbeau (Author), Tracy Whiting (Author), Shelley Singer (Author), Rob Swigart (Author)
DOUBLE TROUBLE, DOUBLE FUN!
Who is Holmes without his Watson, Scully without her Mulder? Half the fun of a witty, fast-paced mystery is watching two wildly different kinds of detectives duke it out verbally while puzzling out a nearly impossible solution. Especially if they happen to be attracted to each other. In these five, some are, some aren’t, but in each case, these dynamic duos complete, complement and—often—thoroughly infuriate each other. (In the friendliest possible way, of course.) Double detectives, double fun at less than half the normal price!

Editor’s Note: These are all full-length novels, not short stories, and, in the great tradition of The Omnibus are a collection of themed books, meant to showcase partners working together, not to introduce first novels in a series. Many of these are mid-series–but they in no way depend on the rest of the series. Simply enjoy as stand-alones!

LOUISIANA LAMENT

They’d be Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito if this were a movie. In Louisiana Lament, they’re P.I.s Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino. Talba’s a young, African-American, computer-brilliant, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and a noted poet by night; Eddie’s pushing seventy, white, hopelessly tech-challenged, and pretty much burned out. Somehow, they make it work—with Talba’s tech-and-street smarts, and Eddie’s old-school hard-earned savvy, they even complement each other.

MAKE ME DEAD

How can you go wrong with a 500-year-old vampyre movie star and her mortally attractive crush—a macho, all too human L.A. cop, on a jaunt to New Orleans in this adventure. A flaming hot combo to begin with, but spiced up with author Barbeau’s sassy writing, it’s a treat for cozy and paranormal fans alike. Because, as always in a Vampyres of Hollywood mystery, the biting wit is sharper than a nip from a passing vampyre—humor, wit, and satire are what this engaging series is really all about.

THE 13TH FELLOW

American Professor Havilah Gaie has always seen herself as “an academic version of Pam Grier’s characters: smart, quick on their feet, loyal with a keen sense of purpose.” Now she’s got a chance to suit up for action because suddenly she’s a witness in a murder—in Provence. Havilah’s at the center of the mystery, and so is Thierry Gasquet, a dashing French agent who doesn’t care much for amateur detectives. Who resists a dashing French agent? Hint: It’s a lot of fun watching Havilah try.

SPIT IN THE OCEAN

Ex-Chicago-cop Jake Samson and his ever-sharp Watson, Rosie Vicente, hired by a bank to find out who made an unauthorized withdrawal, blow into a coastal California town as a savage storm is approaching. It was quite a bank job–the vault emptied out, not a shot fired. In fact, it resembled a burglary more than a bank job, but when you rob a sperm bank, that’s sometimes all it takes. Need we say Jake and Rosie have a ball!

THE DELPHI AGENDA

Papyrologist Lisa Emmer and her cohort, a mysterious banker named Steve, unravel of secrets of ancient history mixed in with a chilling conspiracy that brings to mind the best of Dan Brown. What’s going on: The Inquisition is back! And this time they have technology. An action-packed and very exotic international thriller!

You Can Bet Your Bottom Dollar I Did My Research
by Tracy L. Ward
If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, “Canadian history just isn’t that interesting,” I could retire a very wealthy woman. It seems, in comparison to the oft romanticized aspects of American history (a rebellion for liberty from British rule, a civil war to free the enslaved and multiple presidential assassinations) any history Canadians have been a part of feels downright yawn worthy.

My Grape Village: (The Grape Series #4)
by Laura Bradbury (Author)
Five years after “My Grape Escape,” Laura and Franck are back in Burgundy to tackle their newest project, a derelict 16th century winemaker’s cottage located behind Franck’s family home. Not only is this a daunting rebuild from the ground up, Laura and Franck now have two preschoolers adjusting to the foreign customs of a French school.

Navigating the different rules for raising children and managing a family in a small French village prove every bit as challenging for Laura as learning to drive a stick shift through narrow streets, or arguing with the Architect of French Monuments over permissible paint colors (spoiler alert: any color as long as it’s gray). Come along on this evocative and honest journey where love, coupled with good French food and local wine, pave the way to la belle vie.

Little Man, and the Dixon County War
by Stan R. Mitchell (Author), Danah Mitchell (Illustrator)

Book Description: Paul Zachary shouldn’t have accepted that badge.

And he certainly shouldn’t have shot down a ruthless gunfighter in front of a crowd of onlookers.

But it’s too late to wish he had backed down. Now that the smell of gunpowder has faded and the blood has been scrubbed off the floor, Zachary is something he never wanted to be: a damned hero.

Young Deputy Paul Zachary didn’t aim for fame, but the papers have written him up and made him a legend after he took down the man with the murderous reputation. His stand for what’s right — regardless of the odds or consequences — is reminding folks that justice is possible in the land with few laws. And not just in Zachary’s town of Belleville.

The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the U.S. Navy’s Finest Hour
by James D. Hornfischer (Author)

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James D. Hornfischer’s Neptune’s Inferno.

“This will be a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected. We will do what damage we can.”

With these words, Lieutenant Commander Robert W. Copeland addressed the crew of the destroyer escort USS Samuel B. Roberts on the morning of October 25, 1944, off the Philippine Island of Samar. On the horizon loomed the mightiest ships of the Japanese navy, a massive fleet that represented the last hope of a staggering empire. All that stood between it and Douglas MacArthur’ s vulnerable invasion force were the Roberts and the other small ships of a tiny American flotilla poised to charge into history.

In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestseller Flags of Our Fathers, James D. Hornfischer paints an unprecedented portrait of the Battle of Samar, a naval engagement unlike any other in U.S. history—and captures with unforgettable intensity the men, the strategies, and the sacrifices that turned certain defeat into a legendary victory.

Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta: A Witness to Love
by Michael J. Ruszala (Author), Wyatt North (Author)

While the twentieth century was a a time of turbulence, selfishness, godlessness, and violence, Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a witness to love. She was a clear reminder of the goodness within human nature and the beauty of being truly open to God.

‘Mother’ was her religious title, but as she ascended to the world stage, it became her role for the world—to be like a mother to all, no matter their origins. She was accepting and welcoming towards all people, not only towards the good or the like-minded. She continues to serve as an inspiration to people of all walks of life and all creeds. Where the world was blind to poverty and misery, Mother Teresa led the path to love.

Natural Disaster
by Ginger Zee (Author)
ABC News chief meteorologist Ginger Zee pulls back the curtain on her life in Natural Disaster. Ginger grew up in small-town Michigan where she developed an obsession with weather as a young girl. Ginger opens up about her lifelong battle with crippling depression, her romances that range from misguided to dangerous, and her tumultuous professional path. This cyclone of stories may sound familiar to some—it’s just that Ginger’s personal tempests happened while she was covering some of the most devastating storms in recent history, including a ferocious tornado that killed a legend in the meteorology field. This book is for all the mistake makers who have learned to forgive others and themselves—even in the aftermath of man-made, or in this case Zee-made, disasters. It’s a story that every young woman should read, a story about finding love and finding it in yourself. Beloved by Good Morning America’s audience, Ginger is a daily presence for millions. Zee’s gained fame for her social media presence which is as unfiltered as Natural Disaster—from baby barf to doggy doo-doo. She’s shattered the glass ceiling for women in meteorology, but admits here first, she’s the one natural disaster she couldn’t have forecast.

Best in Show! Dog Gone is the Tale of Two Tail-Chasers
Private investigator Dev Haskell’s new lady friend Maddie comes with strings attached: the loosely-knotted tie of her short black silk kimono, and the leash to Morton, her handsome Golden Retriever.
It’s always a sexy mystery when Dev’s on duty, but this caper takes a turn toward buddy adventure when Dev agrees to pet-sit. On their first evening stroll, Dev and Morton are charmed to meet the lovely Princess Anatasia, a purebred Standard Poodle angling for Best In Show title in the Blessington Kennel Club competition the Super Bowl of regional dog competition. But when the princess’ owner gets in a tussle with a local gambling heavyweight, Dev steps in to help, and the prim and proper world of show dog competition is revealed to be, above all, a competition, plus a big attraction for professional gambling! And these guys are playing for high stakes.
