FBI  SPECIAL  AGENT  ZOE  PRIME  suffers from a rare condition which also gives her a unique talent—she views the world through a lens of numbers. The numbers torment her, make her unable to relate to people, and give her a failed romantic life—yet they also allow her to see patterns that no other FBI agent can see. Zoe keeps her condition a secret, ashamed, in fear her colleagues may find out.

Yet when a serial killer strikes across the Midwest, strangling women in remote places and seemingly at random, Zoe, for the first time, is stumped. Is there a pattern? Can there be no pattern at all?

Or is this killer as obsessed with numbers as she is?

When 23 year old Cassandra Vale accepts her first job as an au pair, she finds herself placed with a wealthy family in a rural estate outside of Paris, and all seems too good to be true.

Cassandra is convinced she’s finally found a fresh start when she takes a job as an au pair in the idyllic French countryside. Just beyond the Paris city limits, the Dubois manor is a grand relic of the past, the family its picture-perfect occupants. It’s the escape Cassandra needs—until she uncovers dark secrets that prove things aren’t as glamorous as they seem.

Beneath the opulence lies a dark web of malice, one Cassandra finds all too familiar, triggering dreams from her own violent and tortured past, one from which she desperately runs. And when a grisly murder tears the house apart, it threatens to take down her own fragile psyche with it.

The Moscow Protocol

the university Book 4

By Terrence McCauley

Men are driven by grief and duty. Only justice can complete the mission.

What do an ex-KGB agent, a North Korean Colonel, an arms dealer, a vice peddler and a renegade Chinese general have in common? Each of them has a target on their back.

After spending his life fighting his nation’s enemies all over the globe and grieving the death of a fellow agent and lover, James Hicks is on the road to recovery from extensive facial reconstructive surgery—which thwarts all known facial recognition scanners—when he finds one of the most wanted men in the world. This does not come without cost, as Hicks soon discovers. Interpol and the FBI want to question him, the CIA wants to capture him, and a mysterious network known as The Vanguard wants him dead.

Forced into hiding, Hicks is determined to team up with The University and devise a bold and deadly plan, which aims to lure The Vanguard into a trap that will end its threat to democracy once and for all.

In an epically mad chase spanning the mean streets of Manhattan, the dangerous jungles of Vietnam, and the back alleys of Bangkok, Hicks and his international team must work together to pull down The Vanguard in a final blow that may change the course of history forever. But will the addicting taste of revenge and the ever-interfering American Intelligence community stand in the way of them completing their mission?

My name is Tess Parker.

Two days ago, I was in a car accident with my sister-in-law, Torrie. Before she slipped into a coma, she asked my husband and me to care for her four-month-old son, Levi.

Yesterday, a woman claiming to be Torrie’s estranged sister knocked on our door. But Torrie has no siblings . . . or so she said. She and my brother were only together a short time before he left, and Torrie has clearly been keeping secrets.

Today, another of Torrie’s “sisters” has come to town. Both say the other is lying about who they are.

Neither of them is telling the truth.

The Revenge of Power

how autocrats are reinventing politics for the 21st century

By Moisés Naím

In The Revenge of Power, Naím turns to the trends, conditions, technologies and behaviors that are contributing to the concentration of power, and to the clash between those forces that weaken power and those that strengthen it. He concentrates on the three “P”s—populism, polarization, and post-truths. All of which are as old as time, but are combined by today’s autocrats to undermine democratic life in new and frightening ways. Power has not changed. But the way people go about gaining it and using it has been transformed.
