In this action-packed thriller, Miami just got a lot more dangerous—especially for one innocent young woman running for her life. The city of Miami is Detective Tom Moon''s back yard. He''s always kept it local, attending University of Miami on a football scholarship, and, as a Miami PD officer, protecting the city''s most vulnerable. Now, as the new leader of an FBI task force called "Operation Guardian," it''s his mission to combat international crime. Moon''s investigative team discovers that the opportunistic "Blood Brothers"—Russian nationals Roman and Emile Rostoff—have evaded authorities while building a vast, powerful, and deadly crime syndicate throughout Europe and metropolitan Miami. Moon played offense for U of M, but he''s on the other side of the field this time. And as the Rostoffs zero in on a target dear to Tom, they''re not playing by anyone''s rules.

James Patterson by James Patterson
“It''s quite a life, Patterson''s, and this fizzing, funny, often deeply moving memoir is a perfect way to understand the dizzying world of a best-selling writer." —Daily Mail “Damn near addictive. I loved it . . . that Patterson guy can write!” –Ron Howard THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER—How did a kid whose dad lived in the poorhouse become the most successful storyteller in the world? On the morning he was born, he nearly died. His dad grew up in the Pogey– the Newburgh, New York, poorhouse. He worked at a mental hospital in Massachusetts, where he met the singer James Taylor and the poet Robert Lowell. While he toiled in advertising hell, James wrote the ad jingle line “I’m a Toys ‘R’ Us Kid.” He once watched James Baldwin and Norman Mailer square off to trade punches at a party. He’s only been in love twice. Both times are amazing. Dolly Parton once sang “Happy Birthday” to James over the phone. She calls him J.J., for Jimmy James. How did a boy from small-town New York become the world’s most successful writer? How does he do it? He has always wanted to write the kind of novel that would be read and reread so many times that the binding breaks and the book literally falls apart. As he says, “I’m still working on that one.” James Patterson by James Patterson is the most anticipated memoir of 2022.

Haunted by guilt and shame, Michael Bennett is living with a father''s worst nightmare. Reeling from a crisis that would destroy lesser families, the Bennetts escape New York for a much-needed vacation.

When local cops uncover a grisly crime scene buried deep in the woods, they consult the vacationing Bennett, who jumps at the chance to atone for his own sins. But far from the city streets he knows so well, no one will talk to the big-city detective, and the bodies keep piling up. A young and forgotten girl is the closest thing Bennett has to a partner in his frantic hunt for the ghostlike perpetrator behind the violence. Will Bennett and his unlikely ally unmask the culprit before anyone else winds up haunted?

Together with a stray named Ermine, they set out to find the truth behind who the Scaredy Cat really is, and how they can end his reign of mischief-making for good.
