In 1989 I met Ron; it was love at first sight, which later became a nightmare. My life was one of devastating choices in order to survive. My children and I were ensnared in a trap of brutality that was hauntingly real. The decision I made in order to live one more day under tortuous circumstances prevented him from killing me allowing my children and me to survive. With one bag of food at my door I fed my kids for a week, we were literally without a dime. My strength and willful confidence kept us going and my children believed in me, that was what kept us alive. Today I can honestly say- Ive come a long way.

In the full-throttle, noir-soaked tradition of Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, the acclaimed young author of Bad Connection unleashes an ambitious and edgy new thriller pulsating with raw, urban energy. Decorated NYPD Officer John Coglin always thought his picture on the front page of the newspaper would be one for the scrapbook. That was before he had the bad luck to be forced into a witness-free, kill-or-be-killed confrontation with a drug-dealing thug. It's of no help to him that the incident took place during the run-up to a bitter mayoral election campaign, and that his adversary was sixteen years old and black. Now, instead of another commendation, Coglin is staring down the barrel of a media- and politics-stoked murder rap. But on the eve of his sure conviction arrives a fateful telephone call. It's not the governor, but his long-lost uncle, Aidan O'Connell. A veteran of the IRA and a recently released guest of San Quentin Penitentiary for armed-to-the-teeth robbery, Aidan offers his nephew a pardon that has nothing to do with lawyers. Coglin is about to find out that the type of amnesty Uncle Aidan is proposing is the kind that involves a beautiful but dangerous Mafia widow, a car trunk full of M-16s, and thirty million dollars in jewels smack dab in the middle of Rockefeller Center. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is a highly entertaining, deliciously gritty, super-fast thriller that takes us on a cutthroat ride into an urban realm where criminal intent collides head-on with the vagaries of fate and the inscrutabilities of the human heart.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead by Patricia Eimer Not Even Death Can Keep a Good Demoness Down There's never an end to the crazy when you're demon spawn. Not that Faith Bettincourt's complaining. She's been patching things up with her angelic on-again off-again boyfriend, Matt, and her best-friend-turned-sister-in-law is soon giving birth to the Anti-Christ Part Deux. Oh, and Faith is saving kids from Death in her pediatric unit, one soul at a time. Life is good. Or at least it is until Faith accidentally runs over the Angel of Death and is forced to take his place. Now she's taking lives instead of saving them. This is kind of a problem when you're a nurse. As if that weren't bad enough, she is suddenly thrust into the worst scenario of them all–Matt's ex is back, and she's brought the Apocalypse with her. Faith's not about to give up the world...or her man. But when the chips are down, what's a girl to do but take matters in her own hands, consequences be damned?
