A pair of ritual murders could expose Mercy Kilpatrick to something terrifying: her own past…
Raised off the grid by survivalists, Mercy Kilpatrick believed in no greater safeguard than the backwoods of Oregon. Unforgiven by her father for abandoning the fold for the FBI, Mercy still holds to her past convictions. They’re in her blood. They’re her secrets—as guarded as her private survival retreat hidden away in the foothills.
In a cabin near her hideaway, Mercy encounters a young girl whose grandmother is dying from multiple knife wounds. Hundreds of miles away, a body is discovered slashed to death in a similar way. The victims—a city judge and an old woman living in the woods—couldn’t be more different. With the help of police chief Truman Daly, Mercy must find the killer before the body count rises. Mercy knows that the past has an edge on her. So does her family. How can she keep her secrets now…when they’re the only things that can save her?
PUSHING BRILLIANCE: Imagine Harrison Ford’s THE FUGITIVE meets Tom Clancy’s HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER.
“The best book I’ve read, bar none.” –Ed Wiseman
Framed for murder and on the run, former Olympic biathlete Kyle Achilles is also in the crosshairs of assassins’ guns. Why? He has no idea. He’s fighting blind against two master strategists and one extraordinary invention–known as Brillyanc.
Achilles’ only ally is the other prime suspect, a beautiful Russian mathematician who is either the best or worst person to ever enter his life. Katya was engaged to Achilles’ brother — before he died.
Chasing clues while dodging bullets, Achilles and Katya race around the globe, uncovering a conspiracy conceived in Moscow, born in Silicon Valley, and destined to demolish both the White House and the Kremlin. Along the way a lost soul finds purpose, a broken heart confronts forbidden love, and America gains a new hero.
Packed with heart-stopping surprises, paced by razor-sharp plotting, and populated with richly rendered characters, Pushing Brilliance will leave you breathless and longing for more.
If you enjoy David Baldacci, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, Nelson DeMille, Ken Follett, Vince Flynn, James Patterson, Daniel Silva, or Brad Thor, odds are you’ll be smiling a few pages into my books as well.

James Lee Burke’s most beloved character, Dave Robicheaux, returns in this gritty, atmospheric mystery set in the towns and backwoods of Louisiana.
DAVE ROBICHEAUX IS A HAUNTED MAN.
Between his recurrent nightmares about Vietnam, his battle with alcoholism, and the sudden loss of his beloved wife, Molly, his thoughts drift from one irreconcilable memory to the next. Images of ghosts at Spanish Lake live on the edge of his vision.
During a murder investigation, Dave Robicheaux discovers he may have committed the homicide he’s investigating, one which involved the death of the man who took the life of Dave’s beloved wife. As he works to clear his name and make sense of the murder, Robicheaux encounters a cast of characters and a resurgence of dark social forces that threaten to destroy all of those whom he loves. What emerges is not only a propulsive and thrilling novel, but a harrowing study of America: this nation’s abiding conflict between a sense of past grandeur and a legacy of shame, its easy seduction by demagogues and wealth, and its predilection for violence and revenge. James Lee Burke has returned with one of America’s favorite characters, in his most searing, most prescient novel to date.

THE ROSE BENNETT MYSTERIES
They say that the love of money is the root of all evil. And doesn’t Rose Bennett know it …
DEAD ON ACCOUNT
It’s a sweltering August evening when bank clerk Pandora Mitchell disappears from sleepy Market Melbourne, evaporating into thin air as she runs the country lanes around the town.
For Rose Bennett, banking consultant turned private investigator, the event shouldn’t be more than a headline in a newspaper. Except that Rose is investigating a bank fraud at the East & Northern Bank, and Pandora Mitchell’s evidence is the key to her enquiries.
As Rose begins to uncover evidence of Pandora’s involvement in the fraud, her colleagues at the bank begin to close ranks. Soon old acquaintances from the past begin to look more like enemies than friends, and as word spreads that Rose is assisting DI George Mulligan to investigate Pandora’s disappearance, someone makes it pretty clear that her presence in the town isn’t welcome.
But as the days pass, and fears for the missing girl grow, there’s more at stake than a bank’s reputation, and Rose doesn’t scare that easily …
A November sleet blowing off the North Sea can chill a man through to the bone. So when Andy Miller’s mangled body is found outside his Scarborough mansion flat, crushed under the wheels of his own BMW, no one can understand why his coat and shoes are missing.
Tracing the culprit behind a threatening phone call to a customer in arrears with his credit card payments should be a straightforward exercise for experienced investigator Rose Bennett. Except that Andy Miller worked for the East & Northern Bank and his death lands right in the middle of her investigation.
There’s no question that Andy was murdered, and as the repercussions of his death ripple out across the bank they hit those around him hard. His girlfriend is inconsolable, his flatmate is bereft, and his flatmate’s girlfriend … well, she used to be Andy’s girlfriend, so things are complicated.
Murder isn’t Rose Bennett’s field of expertise, but when DI George Mulligan asks her to be his eyes and ears within the bank she isn’t short of things to observe. Like Andy’s inconsolable girlfriend finding comfort in the eager arms of his flatmate, and his flatmate’s girlfriend not looking too happy at the idea of history repeating itself …
Alice Blacklaws thought she knew Nathan Kingsley.
A talented sportsman, an honest businessman, and a doting fiancé, he’d loved and cherished both Alice and her daughter Olivia long before they decided to tie the knot. But when someone pays a contract killer to shoot Nathan dead on the day of their wedding, and his devious brother Luke tries to disinherit the grieving Alice of everything Nathan had ever done for her … well, maybe it’s time for Alice to think again.
When Rose Bennett is asked to liaise with the dead man’s family on behalf of the East & Northern Bank, she isn’t sure what she’ll uncover. If a customer dies in suspicious circumstances, and his accounts suggest signs of financial irregularity, you can never be sure of the fall out. But as she attempts to untangle Nathan’s twisted financial affairs, a pattern begins to emerge.
Nathan Kingsley was keeping secrets, secrets someone wanted him to carry to the grave. And as those secrets are revealed, and danger comes ever closer to Alice and to Luke, Rose finds herself facing the very worst kind of killer, a killer without a conscience.
For the man who killed Nathan Kingsley, compassion is nothing, if the price is right. And duty is just a business obligation, to deliver death to order for whoever is paying the bill.

A Wall Street Journal bestseller
All Detective Mason Callahan wanted was a quiet fishing trip with the guys—a chance to get away and unwind before Halloween.
Until he finds the body of his boss, Denny Schefte, near their remote Oregon cabin. Now all he wants is to catch the sadist who slit Denny’s throat and covered his face with a mask. Mason was the last person to see him alive and will stop at nothing to find his friend’s murderer.
When the FBI learns of the mask left at the scene, they realize they have a serial killer on their hands—one who is targeting cops. They assign the case to Special Agent Ava McLane, despite her engagement to Mason. Barely recovered from her own nearly fatal injury and her sister’s attempted suicide, Ava hopes she is ready to chase another killer.
But as she delves into the increasingly disturbing case, the killer may be closer than expected—dangerously close.

No Turning Back is a romantic suspense novel I wrote early in my career. It was originally published in the 90s as If You Believe, under the pseudonym Nancy Kelly. I’m thrilled that it’s now available again in this repackaged edition.
They find the body deep in the woods, lying beneath a carpet of wet leaves, eyes still open in a sightless stare. Three dark stains across his chest, and another bullet hole in his forehead.

That means confronting Detective Hawthorne “Hawk” Hart, who’s come back to Woodside, Washington, after a case in LA went tragically wrong. His teenage son, Jesse, is finding it difficult to adjust, and stumbling across a dead man doesn’t help.
Bad things never used to happen in the small town of Woodside. Now no one is safe. And the more Hawk tries to untangle a terrifying web of greed and murder, the more desperate his adversary becomes to hide the truth, even if that means killing again and again . . .
With its new title and new cover, No Turning Back feels like a whole new book to me—one I hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
In this riveting page-turner from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson, a woman searches for the mother she hasn’t seen in twenty years, and uncovers a nightmare of greed and deception . . .
In death, Didi Storm is finally getting the kind of publicity that eluded her in life. Twenty years ago, the ex-beauty queen worked the Vegas strip as a celebrity impersonator, too busy trying to make it big to spare much time for her daughter, Remmi. Shortly before she leaped from a San Francisco building, Didi’s profile was rising again, thanks to a tell-all book. To Detective Dani Settler, it looks like a straightforward suicide, or perhaps a promotional stunt gone wrong. But Remmi knows the truth isn’t so simple. Because though the broken body on the sidewalk is dressed in Didi’s clothes and wig, it isn’t Didi.
Remmi was fifteen when she last saw her mother. Their parting came in the aftermath of a terrible night in the Mojave desert when Remmi—who’d secretly stowed away in Didi’s car en route to meet her crush, Noah Scott—instead became witness to a mysterious rendezvous. Didi handed over one of her newborn twins to a man Remmi didn’t recognize. Subsequently, Didi disappeared, as did Remmi’s other
half-sibling. Remmi has pleaded with the authorities to find them, but there have been no clues. Yet she’s always had the sense that someone is watching her . . .
If the victim isn’t Didi, who is it—and what’s the connection? Remmi is shocked when Noah resurfaces. He was also in the desert that night, and now runs his own PI firm. He too believes it’s time to find out what really happened. As they and Detective Settler dig deeper, the truth about Remmi’s missing family begins to emerge . . . a story of ruthless ambition and twisted lies that someone will kill again and again to keep hidden . . .

When Great Tragedy Haunts a Man’s Soul — A Powerful New Novel Explores the High Price of Revenge
Los Angeles, CA, August 16, 2007 –(PR.com)– Voice of Conscience is a tale of love and revenge that plays itself out on three continents. It follows the story of an adolescent boy who must flee from his native Turkey to save his life after the brutal murder of his family. As he grows into manhood, he is successful outwardly, taking on all the trappings of a normal life. Ultimately though he must come face to face with the legacy of revenge that has been carefully handed down from father to son.
It is 1962, in the village of Atamkoy, as all are celebrating the impending marriage of fourteen-year-old Ramzi Ozcomert’s beautiful sister. Then in a terrible act of revenge, Ramzi’s father, mother and sister are murdered, and Ramzi escapes to Istanbul with the help of his aunt and uncle. As his fear of hidden enemies increases, he takes refuge in London, England, and there he matures into a cultured, educated man. He meets an American woman who captures his heart and marries her against her father’s wishes. Even though he is able to conquer the obstacles placed before him to become a man of wealth and prominence in the United States, he remains continually haunted by the murders. Awake or asleep, the images of his lost loved ones burn in his mind, and the seed of vengeance intensifies within him. Obsessed by what he is sure he must do, he returns to his homeland.
“He closed his eyes, willing sleep, and when it came, also came the jumbled dreams. Dreams of strangling a man who looked like the older son of the Elder Korucu. Dreams of walking endless, dark corridors, emerging from the darkness, entering again into infinite darkness. An eternity would pass after his death and still his enemies would find him and kill him. That was the way of life, to kill someone and be killed was all the same thing.”
In this passionate, fluidly penned novel, author Behcet Kaya begins his story by transporting readers to the land of his birth, bringing to life all of the sights, sounds and smells of a place steeped in centuries of tradition and exacting customs. Soon, however, we are drawn into the tragic story of Kaya’s main character, Ramzi, who, as he seeks to overcome the pain of the past, may instead lose his future.
