Come back in time with the first ARISEN prequel and live through the beginning of the end of the world… (Can be read as a stand-alone novel, an introduction to the series, or at any point while reading the main series.)
Tucked away in a high-tech Tactical Operations Center, inside an isolated safehouse in the Horn of Africa, sits Agency analyst Zack Altringham. He is Kenyan-born, Princeton-educated, badly burnt-out – and condemned by his language and cultural skills to a lifetime of fighting America’s shadow counter-terror wars.
But when another mystery epidemic breaks out, and terrifyingly quickly reaches a tipping point, chaos descends – and Zack and his team (including two former Team Six SEALs) are trapped between the millstones of the sick and the dying on one side, and heavily armed militias on the other. Soon their “safe” house is in flames, and their only remaining option is to get in their up-armored SUV and try to escape the imploding gravity well of the city, to the safety of the American military base in Djibouti. But by then, will there be anywhere safe left on Earth to escape to?
Not since Lionel Shriver brought us We Need to Talk About Kevin has a writer delved into the complexities of a disturbed mother/son relationship. Until now.
Meet Noah—an A-honor roll student, award-winning swimmer, and small-town star destined for greatness. There weren’t any signs that something was wrong until the day he confesses to molesting little girls during swim team practice. He’s sentenced to eighteen months in a juvenile sexual rehabilitation center.
His mother, Adrianne, refuses to turn her back on him despite his horrific crimes, but her husband won’t allow Noah back into their home. In a series of shocking and shattering revelations, Adrianne is forced to make the hardest decision of her life. Just how far will she go to protect her son?
Saving Noah challenges everything you think you know about teenage sexual offenders. It will keep you up at night long after you’ve read the last page, questioning beliefs you once thought were true.
“One of the most thrilling writers working today. Miss him at your peril.” – Blake Crouch, Wayward Pines
An experimental rafting expedition, an FBI manhunt for a delusional killer, and the worst storm in decades collide in the remote mountain wilderness…and then THEY come out.
Bowie Whitlock and a team of celebrity athletes are commissioned to test two experimental rafts in the rugged Unegama Gorge in the remote Appalachian Mountains, considered the most dangerous whitewater rapids in the eastern United States.
FBI agent Jim Castle and his partner are in the gorge looking for Ace Goodall, a deranged abortion clinic bomber. Ace, accompanied by a fragile young woman, is suffering visions that guide his murderous behavior. An accident during the manhunt releases a long-hidden species to the world.
The race is on as dark storm clouds gather, the river swells to a torrent, and Ace hijacks the rafting expedition to make his escape. But the bloodthirsty creatures swooping down from the high cliffs have been too long without prey.
Ace has one more bomb.
God is talking to him.
And he’ll kill Bowie or anyone else who stands in his way. But killing isn’t what it used to be, because the dead no longer stay dead.
