Dying Game: Beverly Barton
It's the ultimate game - the adrenaline surge of the
hunt, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat. For in
this game, the rules are simple: To win, you only have
to kill. To lose, you will have to die. The victims are

before, when she was a rookie detective with the
Chattanooga PD investigating the death of Judd Walker's
wife, a murder that sent the handsome lawyer off the
deep end. Now, Lindsay has the brutal task of telling
Judd that his wife's killer has struck again, and she's
going to need his help to outplay their opponent -
because the killer is getting bolder, faster, and more
ruthless. The game is escalating, and no one is safe.

Hidden Corpse: Debra Sennefelder
When Hope's elderly neighbor perishes in a home fire,
she can't help but feel somewhat responsible. Only the
day before, Peggy Olson had called her over, having

filling the house with smoke. In fact, she couldn't even
remember cooking. Clearly, it was dangerous for the
woman to live alone. But it turns out she wasn't alone.
When a second body is discovered in the basement of the
burned house, suddenly what appeared to be a tragic
accident is beginning to look like premeditated murder.
As rumors spread like wildfire, Hope is determined to

be jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire.

Prey: John Sandford
Lucas Davenport had crossed paths with her before. A
rich psychopath, Taryn Grant had run successfully for
the U.S. Senate, where Lucas had predicted she'd fit
right in. He was also convinced that she'd been
responsible for three murders, though he'd never been
able to prove it. Once a psychopath had gotten that kind
of rush, though, he or she often needed another fix, so
he figured he might be seeing her again. He was right. A
federal marshal now, with a very wide scope of
investigation, he's heard rumors that Grant has found
her seat on the Senate intelligence committee, and the
contacts she's made from it, to be very - useful.
Pinning those rumors down was likely to be just as
difficult as before, and considerably more dangerous.
But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way
or the other, he was going to see it through to the end.
