The Fear Within: A Thriller

The Fear Within: A Thriller
Law, J. S.

"After events on board the submarine HMS Tenacity, Lieutenant "Dan" Lewis of the Royal Navy's Kill Team was warned not to pursue those responsible. She should walk away, stop investigating, but her thirst for justice means she can't let it go. But even as Dan defies the order, continuing to track a sailor on the run, her investigative skills are needed on a new case. A young naval Wren has gone missing from the warship HMS Defiance. Last seen going on board, but never seen leaving. There is no trace of the girl and Dan must work her way through a web of witness accounts to uncover what might motivate her to run, or what might motivate a predator to take her. Following in the wake of the missing girl, Dan soon closes in on her quarry, but is forced to question whether she is the one who was being hunted all along"--Provided by publisher.

Dismissed With Prejudice

Dismissed With Prejudice
Jance, Judith A.

The blood at the scene belies any suggestion of an "honorable death." Yet, to the eyes of the Seattle police, a successful Japanese software magnate died exactly as he wished--and by his own hand, according to the ancient rite of seppuku. Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont can't dismiss what he sees as an elaborate suicide, however, not when something about it makes his flesh crawl. Because small errors in the ritual suggest something darker: a killer who will go to extraordinary lengths to escape detection, a fiend with a less traditional passion for cold-blooded murder.

Injustice for All

Injustice for All
Jance, Judith A.

It was a scene from a "slasher flick"--A beautiful woman's terrified screams piercing the air, a dead body sprawled at her feet, blood staining the pristine sands of a Washington beach. But the blood is real, and the victim won't be rising when a director yells, "Cut!" In one horrific instant, a homicide detective's well-earned holiday has become a waking nightmare.
