Fleeing the U.S., Hannah now faces similar circumstances in London. Former Royal Military Police Sgt. Dan Carter, head of Morgan’s detective service’s London office, & his ex-wife Kirsty Webb, are investigating the serial abduction & mutilation killing of young women from central London.

Nano by Robin Cook. Medical student Pia Grazdani needs a year off from her medical studies to clear her head from personal issues. Moving from NYC to the foothills of the Rockies for a job with Nano LLC seems perfect. Nano is a well-funded nanotech institute leading the way in molecular manufacturing. It is also a highly secretive corporation & Pia’s first day includes a warning not to ask questions. In time, Pia stumbles upon information suggesting Nano is experimenting with human guinea pigs. And, for her, the issue becomes one of “Now what?”

Threat Vector by Tom Clancy. In China, an aborted coup leads to a change in international policy. China declares the South China Sea to be a protectorate and proceeds to move against Taiwan. New Chinese anti-ship missiles pose a major threat to the U.S. navy. Moreover, China has initiated an effective cyber attack on U.S. infrastructure. Jack Ryan, Jr. & colleagues at the highly secret un-official intelligence agency called the “Campus” are ready to spring into action when it becomes apparent their secret existence is no secret anymore. Can someone actually nullify their effectiveness by exposing them?

Shadow Creek by Joy Fielding. Valerie, facing imminent divorce, finds herself in a camping party that includes not only her moody & rebellious 16 yr. old daughter Brianne and 2 of Valerie’s wacky friends, but also her estranged husband’s fiancée Jenifer. It’s bad enough when they learn a pair of killers is loose in that same area of the Adirondacks, but when Brianne disappears, Valerie’s bad dream becomes a nightmare.

Shiver by Karen Robards. Samantha Jones drives a tow truck at night through the city’s most dangerous streets. A loaded pistol is always at her side. Usually her night goes relatively smoothly. Then came the new BMW which she reclaimed and found a beaten good-looking guy bound in the trunk. Daniel Panterro figured he was gone for when the drug runners kidnapped him from protective custody. Once they learn he survived, they’ll come again. His only recourse is to force Samantha to help him and with killers on their trail, she doesn’t have much choice. Is it their mutual reliance that is the bridge for the attraction they both feel? And how far can one trust a stranger when one’s own life is at stake?
