    The Gangster

    Isaac Bell is back in this BRAND NEW ADVENTURE BLOCKBUSTER from Sunday Times bestseller Clive Cussler *** THE PERPETRATORS It is 1906 and in New York City the Italian crime group known as the Black Hand is on a menacing spree: kidnapping, extortion, arson. THE INVESTIGATOR Detective Isaac Bell of the Van Dorn Agency is hired to form a special "Black Hand Squad," but the gangsters appear to be everywhere. So much so that Bell begins to wonder if there are imitator mobs emerging, other criminals using the Black Hand name to further terrorise the city. WHERE WILL IT LEAD? But then the murders begin, each one of a man more powerful than the last. Bell knows that copycat or not he's facing a lethal organisation, and to his dismay their ultimate target may be the most powerful man of all. *** 'Cussler is hard to beat' Daily Mail 'The Adventure King' Sunday Express 'Nobody does it better...nobody!'

    Bonnie and Clyde

    Motivated by greed and sadism-or perhaps by poverty and boredom-star-crossed lovers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow set out on a series of robberies throughout the American Southwest, many of which ended in murder. Frustrated by the suffocating poverty of the Great Depression, they were especially eager to target their oppressors-banks, store owners, and at times, the police. Their numerous crimes triggered an FBI manhunt, but their Robin-Hood ethos made them heroes in the eyes of many, establishing their place as legends of American folklore. This objective volume paints a realistic picture of often-romanticized subject matter, as it explores the motivation and impact of two of the most notorious criminals in U.S. history.

    The Bone Collection

    A collection of pulse-pounding tales featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan—including the untold story of her first case! The #1 New York Times bestselling author behind the hit Fox series Bones, Kathy Reichs is renowned for chilling suspense and fascinating forensic detail. The Bone Collection presents her trademark artistry in this collection of thrilling short fiction. In First Bones, a prequel to Reichs’s first novel, Déjà Dead, she at last reveals the tale of how Tempe became a forensic anthropologist. In this never-before-published story, Tempe recalls the case that lured her from a promising career in academia into the grim but addictive world of criminal investigation. (It all began with a visit from a pair of detectives—and a John Doe recovered from an arson scene in a trailer.) The collection is rounded out with three more stories that take Tempe from the low country of the Florida Everglades, where she makes a grisly discovery in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Burmese python, to the heights of Mount Everest, where a frozen corpse is unearthed. No matter where she goes, Tempe’s cases make for the most gripping reading. Praise for Kathy Reichs and the Temperance Brennan series “Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She’s the real deal.”—David Baldacci “Kathy Reichs writes smart—no, make that brilliant—mysteries that are as realistic as nonfiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher or Alex Cross.”—James Patterson “Every minute in the morgue with Tempe is golden.”—The New York Times Book Review
