Her partner has promised that if they can pull off this one last heist aboard the Lusitania, they’ll finally leave the game behind. Tess desperately wants to believe that, but Tess has the uneasy feeling there’s something about this job that isn’t as it seems. . . .

Lewis and Lindsay Thorpe were the perfect couple: young, attractive, and ideally matched. But the veil of perfection can mask many blemishes. When the Thorpes are found dead in their tasteful Flagstaff living room (having committed double suicide), alarms go off in the towering Manhattan offices of Eden Incorporated, the high-tech matchmaking company whose spectacular success, and legendary secrecy, has inspired awe around the world. The Thorpes, few people knew, were more than the quintessential happy couple – they were Eden’s first perfect match. A short time later, Christopher Lash, a gifted former FBI forensic psychologist, receives an urgent plea from Eden to perform a quick – and quiet – investigation into the deaths. Lash’s psychological autopsy reveals nothing suspicious, but inadvertently dredges up the memories of a searing personal tragedy he has kept at bay for years. The situation changes suddenly when a second Eden couple is found dead -- by all appearances, another double suicide. Now Eden – particularly Richard Silver, the company’s brilliant and reclusive founder – has no choice but to grant Lash unprecedented access to its most guarded secrets if he is to have any chance of determining what is going wrong. The hidden world he discovers is a stunning labyrinth of artificial intelligence, creative genius, and a melding of technology that does indeed, to Lash’s surprise, deliver on Eden’s promise to its clients: the guarantee of a perfect, lifelong mate. But Lash’s involvement in the investigation becomes more personal and dangerous than he could have imagined, nearly as soon as it begins. With tremendous imagination and skill, master thriller-writer Lincoln Child renders a setting too frighteningly believable not to be real. Infused with relentless suspense and a riveting pace, DEATH MATCH is Child at his best.

Genre: Authors, American

Dan J. Marlowe (1914-1986), author of The Name of the Game is Death, was one of the finest paperback suspense novelists of the 1960s and 1970s, so good that Stephen King dedicated a book to him. But Marlowe's life was full of strange drama, some featuring his friendship with bank robber Al Nussbaum, a partner of the murderous sociopath Bobby "One-Eye" Wilcoxson. This biography interweaves the stories of Nussbaum, who became a mystery-story writer, Wilcoxson, who committed a savage murder after being released from prison, and Marlowe, who, stricken with amnesia, was haunted by the ghosts of his past, some of whom roamed the world of kinky sex. Book contains 16 photos. "Fantastic...This biography is almost as wild, compelling, dark and surprising as one of Marlowe's books...Highly recommended "-Lee Goldberg, author and TV writer/producer who has scripted Diagnosis: Murder, Monk, Hunter and Spenser: For Hire. "A brilliant biography of the great noir and hardboiled paperbacker Dan J. Marlowe, written with novelistic flair by Charles Kelly."--James Reasoner, celebrated western/mystery writer and author of Texas Wind. Reasoner called Gunshots in Another Room one of his ten favorite books of 2012. "I still remember buying The Name of the Game is Death on a metal spin rack when I was in college. No novel except They Shoot Horses, Don't They? had ever shocked me to the same degree. Marlowe had created a masterpiece. So has Charles Kelly."--Ed Gorman, legendary mystery writer and editor of The Big Book of Noir. "Kelly relates (the details of Marlowe's life) with a sharp and sympathetic eye and a hardboiled style. Informative and well-written, Gunshots in Another Room makes for quite a story."--Woody Haut, author of Pulp Culture: Hardboiled Fiction and the Cold War, Neon Noir, and Heartbreak and Vine: The Fate of Hardboiled Writers in Hollywood. "For anyone interested in the history of crime fiction, or the evolution and devolution of the paperback original industry, Gunshots in Another Room is an indispensable volume."-Cullen Gallagher, in the Los Angeles Review of Books. "(The book) demonstrates impeccable (and imaginative) research, perhaps not surprisingly since Kelly is an award-winning journalist."-Marvin Lachman, author of A Reader's Guide to the American Novel of Detection. "Kelly's delight in his subject is so palpable that we feel his excitement as if we're handling the material ourselves...His biography unfolds like the best stories; truth that reads as fiction, containing narrative drive, setups and plenty of payoffs along the way, satisfying and literate."-Jessica Argyle, author of Arrest Me (before I write again), on KeysNews.com.

All of Portugal believes that the royal family departed for Brazil just before the French troops marched into Lisbon. Only the English government knows that mad seventy-three-year-old Queen Maria was spirited away by a group of loyalists determined to rally a resistance. But as the French garrison scours the countryside, it’s only a matter of time before she’s found and taken. It’s up to Jane to find her first and ensure her safety. But she has no knowledge of Portugal or the language. Though she is loath to admit it, she needs the Moonflower. Operating alone has taught her to respect her own limitations. But she knows better than to show weakness around the Moonflower—an agent with a reputation for brilliance, a tendency toward insubordination, and a history of going rogue.
