“ A gritty, raw, and engrossing voice.”–Publishers Weekly I was a bad mother,
a bad daughter,
a bad wife, a bad friend.
Boozed out and tired,
with no dreams
and no future. But I was a good officer. Sara Lunsford helped cage the worst of the worst, from serial killers to sex criminals. At the end of every day, when she walked out the prison gate, she had to try to shed the horrors she witnessed. But the darkness invaded every part of her life, no matter how much she tried to immerse herself in a liquor bottle. She couldn’t hide from the things that hurt her, the things that made her bleed, the things that still rise up in the dark and choke her. With a magnetic, raw voice that you won’t soon forget, Sweet Hell on Fire grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. It’s a hardscrabble climb from rock bottom to the new ground of a woman who understands the meaning of sacrifice, the joy of redemption, and the quiet haven to be found in hope.

A long the rain-soaked pavements of Hong Kong slinks the Revelation virus, which transforms people into ravenous, adrenaline-charged shells of their former selves, followed by a painful death.
Ruby is a remapper: one of the lucky few to be immune to the virus that decimated 90% of the world’s population, one of the brave few who ventures into the dark corners of Hong Kong to see what remains. In the wasteland of Hong Kong, Ruby finds what she’s been looking for, what her father and brother died for: the promise of a viral shelter. But the people who believe that immune blood can cure all are coming for Ruby, to take one of her only currencies in a broken world– her blood. And they will do anything to get to it.
As her memory continues to evaporate from her in the detritus of Hong Kong’s wasteland, a result of the gamma rays that surround her, Ruby knows that the only person to trust is herself, and the only chance at survival is the myth of the viral shelters that lie underground like a whispered promise. As she fights for her life and a chance at tomorrow, will she lose everything in the process?
The love child of Mira Grant’s Feed, Blade Runner, and William Gibson’s cyberpunk world of Neuromancer, Slouching Towards Kowloon is an action-packed thrill ride into the heart of darkness, where people will do anything and be anything for the bleakest, most distant chance at survival.

H ot off the publication of Bones, the winner of the Edgar Award for Best Novel, Jan Burke explodes onto the suspense scene with Flight, featuring the hard-edged Detective Frank Harriman, husband of Jan’s beloved series heroine Irene Kelly. A family is found murdered. In a cruel twist, one of the Las Piernas Police Department’s own, Philip Lefebvre, is suspected of killing the only witness. When that detective disappears, a crime boss goes free. And the LPPD is forever changed.

Flight is a heart-pounding marriage of Jan Burke’s “intricate plotting” (Washington Times), “chilling suspense” (Clive Cussler), and trademark “crisp, crackling prose” (Library Journal) that will thrill newcomers and veteran Burke fans, cover to cover.
