Inspector Thomas Lynley, 8th Earl of Asherton, feels some trepidation as he introduces his bride-to-be to his mother at the ancestral home of Howenstow in Cornwall. But Lynley's private concerns are soon forgotten as the brutal murder of a local journalist requires him to focus on the professional, rather than the personal. The investigation tears apart powerful ties of love and friendship, shattering the tranquillity of the picturesque Cornish community and exposing a long-buried family secret. Its consequences irrevocably alter the course of Thomas Lynley's life.

William W. Johnstone is legend in contemporary fiction. From his towering westerns to his edgy thrillers, Johnstone captures the true American spirit. Now, in this blockbuster new novel torn from today's headlines, Johnstone puts us on the frontlines of a new war: for the borders of America itself. Vengeance Is Mine They've already started coming across. The drug dealers and the petty criminals. The terrorists and the parasites. For one man on the West Texas border, the time to stand against them is now. John Howard Stark, a Vietnam vet whose family has worked their ranch for generations, has set off a trip wire--and an ambush has exploded all around him. A Columbian drug cartel commander, with the help of an ex-special forces hit man and his own deadly army, has killed three Americans--including Stark's uncle and his neighbor--and will slaughter anyone else who stands in his way. The local law is in his pocket and the Border Patrol is powerless to help. Now John Howard Stark is about to wage a one-man war. And he's got the best kind of reason to fight to the death. But for this American, there's one thing more dangerous than the enemies slithering across the border--and that's the second enemy standing behind his back: His own government. . . William W. Johnstone is the USA Today bestselling author of over 130 books, including the popular Ashes, Mountain Man, and Last Gunfighter series.

London 1887: a year of Continental anarchist- and American-financed Fenian violence. The suspicious death of Patrick O’Rorke’s boyhood friend Tom O’Brien – the internationally famous tenor known as Tomaso Briani – propels the former colonial detective into dangerous places when he is called on to investigate by both Briani’s mysterious widow, the Contessa di Stephani, and ambitious but devious Detective Chief Inspector Wilson of Scotland Yard’s Special Branch, himself embroiled in the Yard’s own labyrinthine power struggles. As other old friends, enemies and ghosts from O’Rorke’s past in New Zealand, Ireland and America rise up again to haunt him, the alliance of a Fenian cell – led by his former professional rival Declan Burke and his mortal enemy Bogdan Lynskey – threatens his life and the lives of everyone close to him. The fast-moving action takes us from London’s fashionable Belgravia and Kensington to Ireland’s Limerick Town and O’Rorke’s birthplace, before reaching its midnight climax at the highwayman Tibbet’s Corner on Wimbledon Common, where a truth is finally revealed and a mortal shot is fired.
