Deader Still

Back in his criminal past, Simon Canderous never imagined himself in a nine-to-five job — much less a nine-to-five a.m. one. But that’s what you get when you work on the side of good, for Manhattan’s woefully underfunded Department of Extraordinary Affairs. It’s been 737 days since the Department’s last vampire incursion, but that streak appears to have ended when a boatful of dead lawyers is found on the Hudson River. Using the power of psychometry — the ability to divine the history of an object by touching it — Simon discovers that the booze cruise was crashed by something that sucked all the blood out of the litigators. Plus Simon’s girlfriend is studying technomancy a little too closely with her boss; his mentor, Connor, seems to be hiding something from him; and a dangerous old flame has blown into town and threatens to make his life a living hell unless he helps her out with one last art heist. Simon’s workday may never end — until his life does…

Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana.

She really is … but Sookie’s got a bit of a disability. She can read minds. And that doesn’t make her too dateable. And then along comes Bill: he’s tall, he’s dark and he’s handsome – and Sookie can’t ‘hear’ a word he’s thinking. He’s exactly the type of guy she’s been waiting all her life for. But Bill has a disability of his own: he’s fussy about his food, he doesn’t like suntans and he’s never around during the day … Yep, Bill’s a vampire. Worse than that, he hangs with a seriously creepy crowd, with a reputation for trouble – of the murderous kind. And then one of Sookie’s colleagues at the bar is killed, and it’s beginning to look like Sookie might be the next victim …

TOM CLANCY’S GREATEST CHARACTERS FACE THEIR DEADLIEST CHALLENGE After almost a decade, Tom Clancy–the acknowledged master of international intrigue and non-stop military action-returns to the world he knows better than anyone: a world of chaos, caught in the crossfire of politics and power, placed on the edge of annihilation by evil men. But there are other men who are honor-bound to stop the bloodshed and protect their homeland-by any means necessary… It is called the Campus. Secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose is to hunt down, locate, and eliminate terrorists and those who protect them at will, without sanction or oversight. A self- sufficient entity, it has no official connection to the American government-a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane ideals as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong. Covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at the Campus have waged this silent war in every corner of the world. Now joined by two of his father’s closest allies-black ops warriors John Clark and “Ding” Chavez, as well as Brian and Dominic Caruso and Mary Pat Foley-the Campus has come up against its greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir. The mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world-a fact which the Campus is determined to change. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed, as he plans a monumental single strike that will destroy the heart of America, unless the Campus can take him “Dead or Alive.” On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father’s footsteps on a deadly manhunt that will take him and his allies across the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back onto U.S. soil-in a battle to prevent the fall of the West… Together for the first time, an all-star cast of Tom Clancy’s characters race to ensure the nation’s survival and to complete their mission: the desperate search for a madman who may be hiding in plain sight.

Soon, to his surprise, Horton finds he is caught up in a complex investigation that has far-reaching international implications. With the pressure on to find a killer, and hampered by his belief that his bosses are lying to him, Horton discovers that he’s stepped into a web of intrigue, deception and corruption that stretches back into the past.
