Bone Deep

**The stunning new thriller from the *New York Times*bestselling author.**
When a Crow Indian acquaintance of Tomlinson’s asks him to help recover a relic stolen from his tribe, Doc Ford is happy to tag alongbut neither Doc nor Tomlinson realize what they’ve let themselves in for. Their search takes them to the part of Central Florida known as Bone Valley, famous primarily for two things: a ruthless subculture of black-marketers who trade in illegal artifacts and fossils, and a multibillion-dollar phosphate industry whose strip mines compromise the very ground they walk on.
Neither enterprise tolerates nosy outsiders. For each, public exposure equals big financial lossesand in a region built on a million-year accumulation of bones, there is no shortage of spots in which to hide a corpse. Or two.

Bone Coven

Accepting my new fate as only half a witch turned out to be much more difficult than I thought it would be, but when a leader of a coven comes to me with a seemingly unsolvable case, everything changes again.
The Green coven is under attack. The children of its leaders are disappearing without a trace, and nobody knows how to find them. Witches are losing it, and the coven is on the brink of self-destruction. The strangest thing is, the exact same things happened a decade ago, right before the Bone coven broke apart, and I’m not one to believe in coincidences.
Solving this case means making my place in the paranormal world once and for all, and I’m going to use everything I have to get to the bottom of it – even if it means exposing my real magic to the world.

The Bone Conjurer

The Bone Conjurer (Rogue Angel Series #24) by Alex Archer
**From the ashes of an ancient holy order comes an unholy relic…**
In the time of the Crusades, the Knights Templars were holy warriors who seemed to be blessed by God himself. But over the years, the order dissolved into mysteries both sacred and profane—creating an object whose power bends to the true nature of its owner….
But until she held it in her hands, archaeologist Annja Creed hadn’t heard of the Skull of Sidon nor the twisted tale of its origins. Even now, she’s still not convinced. Yet someone wants it badly enough to hire a man who wields power beyond her imagining. Power enough to prevent Annja from protecting the mysterious skull. And power enough to kill.

The Bohemian Girl: Denton # 2

It’s the first year of the 20th century, and Denton, the notorious American writer, has returned to London after several months in one of the less-delightful corners of the Continent. He’s greeted by a towering pile of mail –bills, invitations, gushing notes from fans craving more tales of adventuring. It’s the usual mix…with one exception: “I believe that someone threatens to harm me, and I do not know quite what to do.” The note, signed “Mary Thomason” was in fact been sent by someone else. And it is more than two months old. But Denton is a Victorian gentlemen to the marrow, much though he’d like to deny it, and he cannot deny a damsel in distress. His search for the mysterious Miss Thomason will take him deep into London’s “bohemian” quarters — no less alluring, pretentious and sinister than they are today – and also into some of the darker corners of his own soul.

Body Work

Body Work (V. I. Warshawski Series #14) by Sara Paretsky
**“V.I. Warshawski is back—intelligent, tough, sarcastic and trouble-prone as ever….*Body Work* isn’t just a satisfying whodunnit; it’s a rich, well-written why-dunnit, striking some surprising chords that will resonate long after you finish the final page.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch**
Chicago’s Club Gouge attracts an eclectic audience, from bohemian types to Ukranian mobsters to young men just back from the war. And tonight, V.I. Warshawski is in the crowd too. The edgy stage show stars The Body Artist, who invites audience members to draw on her naked flesh. But things get a lot edgier when a woman sketches a picture on the Body Artist—and one of the veterans flies into a drunken rage. Next thing V.I. knows, she’s cradling the woman’s dying body in an alley, and a PTSD-stricken soldier is presumed guilty. But he’s also comatose after a drug overdose, and the mystery of what exactly set him off—and what kinds of shady activities are really happening at Club Gouge—will lead V.I. to a truth as explosive as the IEDs that lurk on the roadsides of Iraq.

The Boat of a Million Years

Others have written SF on the theme of immortality, but in *The Boat of a Million Years*, Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history, certain individuals were born who live on, unaging, undying, through the centuries and millenia. We follow them through over 2000 years, up to our time and beyond-to the promise of utopia, and to the challenge of the stars.
A milestone in modern science fiction, a *New York Times* Notable Book on its first publication in 1989, this is one of a great writer’s finest works.

Blue Shadow

**The price of normalcy**
Hoping to cure his curse and return to his fiancée, Jason Wolfe agrees to command a corporate monster-hunting unit. But the team isn’t exactly what he had in mind…
A priest, a ninja, a zombie, and a guy who looks like he should be working crew on the carny circuit. To be fair, not all of Jason’s new charges are keen on being trained by a werewolf.
But ready or not, the team has just been called to a job. Something is snatching children from a small town in southern Mexico. Worse, all signs point to vampires — and a darker, more malevolent force.
As evil grips the vulnerable town, Jason’s ability to lead and his Blue Wolf’s instincts to protect will be challenged like never before, especially as trouble looms back home.
Can he rally his misfit crew before the evil claims them? Or will his team’s first mission be its last?

Blue Moon

An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, novel’Richard was an alpha werewolf. It was his only serious flaw. We’d broken up after I’d seen him eat somebody.’You never forget your ex-fiance.

There’s a full moon coming, and if my werewolf love is still behind bars when it rises, he’ll be facing a lot worse than an assault charge…

Blue Mars

From Publishers Weekly

Red Mars, the kickoff to Robinson’s epic Mars trilogy, won the Nebula for best SF novel of 1992; its follow-up, Green Mars, won the parallel Hugo for 1994. The conclusion to the saga is not unlike the terrain of Robinson’s Red Planet: fertile and fully developed in some spots, vast and arid in others?but, ultimately, it’s an impressive achievement. Using the last 200 years of American history as his template for Martian history, Robinson projects his tale of Mars’s colonization from the 21st century, in which settlers successfully revolt against Earth, into the next century, when various interests on Mars work out their differences on issues ranging from government to the terraforming of the planet and immigration. Sax Russell, Maya Toitovna and others reprise their roles from the first two novels, but the dominant “personality” is the planet itself, which Robinson describes in exhaustive naturalistic detail. Characters look repeatedly for sermons in its stones and are nearly overwhelmed by textbook abstracts on the biological and geological minutiae of their environment. Not until the closing chapters, when they begin confronting their mortality, does the human dimension of the story balance out its awesome ecological extrapolations. Robinson’s achievement here is on a par with Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles and Herbert’s Dune, even if his clinical detachment may leave some readers wondering whether there really is life on Mars.

From Library Journal

This third book in Robinson’s hard-science Mars trilogy follows 1992 Nebula winner Red Mars (LJ 11/15/92) and 1994 Hugo winner Green Mars (LJ 3/15/94). In the 21st century, colonists almost succeed in terraforming Mars. While they fight for independence from Earth and attempt to avert a civil war, they find their new civilization threatened by an ice age. A well-written, thoughtful conclusion to the trilogy. Highly recommended for sf collections.

Blue Gold

EDITORIAL REVIEW: **A Kurt Austin Adventure** In *Serpent,* his *New York Times* bestseller, Clive Cussler introduced Kurt Austin, a hero for the new millennium, and “created a new bunch of NUMA supersleuths who infused his work with a…jolt of energy” *(The Denver Post).* Now Austin and his crew slake their thirst for action as they attempt to drown an eco-extortionist’s plan to control the world’s freshwater supply. **BLUE GOLD** **A Novel from the NUMA Files** From deep within the Venezuelan rain forest emanates the legend of a white goddess and a mysterious tribe with startling technical accomplishments. Few believe the tribe exists — and even fewer suspect its deity may hold knowledge that can change the course of history. For National Underwater & Marine Agency crew leader Kurt Austin, an investigation into the sudden deaths of rare whales leads him to the Mexican coast, where someone tries to put him and his mini-sub permanently out of commission. Meanwhile, in South America’s lush hills, a specially assigned NUMA crew turns up the white-goddess legend — and a murderous cadre of bio-pirates intent on stealing medicinal secrets worth millions. Soon Austin and his crew realize they’re working the opposite ends of the same grand scheme. A billionaire California tycoon is poised to rise to power by monopolizing the earth’s vastly depleted freshwater reserves and ultimately dominate the world. Austin has a hunch Venezuela’s mythical tribal goddess has some real roots in science, and may be the key to locating a secret formula that could turn vast amounts of seawater into fresh. But with each step into the bush, he and his NUMA team feel like fish out of water — and must fight a deadly, twisting trail of enemies through a dense jungle of treachery, blackmail, and murder.

The Blue Edge of Midnight

###
The Blue Edge of Midnight (Max Freeman Series #1) by Jonathon King
Featuring ex-cop Max Freeman, *The Blue Edge of Midnight* marks the debut of a powerful new crime series.
Max Freeman’s old life ended on a night that will haunt him forever. The night he killed a twelve-year-old child in self-defense in a Philadelphia shootout. The night he stopped being a cop. Now he lives an existence of solitary confinement on the edge of the Florida Everglades, where he answers to no one but the demons that eat away at his conscience.
Until the night he finds the corpse of a child beside an ancient river. The night Max Freeman’s past explodes into the present.
Suddenly, Freeman is thrust into the center of the search for a killer responsible for a string of grisly slayings that is baffling both local authorities and the F.B.I. Distrusted as an outsider by the longtime residents of the Glades and pulled into the case as suspect by the police, Freeman must walk a tenuous tightrope of distrust on both sides of the law. When another child goes missing, all eyes turn to Freeman-and the ex-cop, driven by his old habits and the memories of that long-ago Philadelphia midnight, knows that he has no choice but to hunt down the seemingly unstoppable murderer himself.
An electrifying story of crime, punishment, and one man’s personal redemption played out against a backdrop of wild natural beauty in conflict with the modern urban world, *The Blue Edge of Midnight* heralds the arrival of a stunning new voice in contemporary crime fiction.
Author Biography: Jonathon King, a journalist for 20 years, began his career at the *Philadelphia Daily News*. He has covered crime and criminal courts and is now a national award-winning news feature writer for the *South Florida Sun-Sentinel*. *The Blue Edge of Midnight* is his first novel.
