THE LOST GIRLS is book #2 in the #1 bestselling Suburban Murder series, which begins with THE FORGOTTEN GIRLS, book #1 (a free download)!

The brutally beaten body of a young girl is discovered in a marsh in Jamesport, one of New York’s most elite suburbs. Police comb the area, while many speculate her murder might be connected to the abduction, six months earlier, of three girls from Jamesport. The FBI has evidence of an underage prostitution and trafficking ring which may be related.

At the request of the FBI, Billy Dee, captain of the Ninth Precinct in the Bronx, head of its Sex Crimes Unit, sends two of his most seasoned detectives to Jamesport to conduct their own investigation: Bella de Franco and Jimmy “Mack” Menendez. They are sent north, back into the land of the beautiful.

Between local politics, fractured families, a heroin epidemic and a dark secret that the wealthy town strives to keep hidden, the unspeakably dark and twisted reality lurking behind Jamesport life is uncovered. As they learn that everything is not what it seems in this wealthy suburb, Bella and Mack must race against the clock to save one last girl before she is sold across state lines, where she will vanish forever.

Book #3 in the Suburban Murder series will be released soon!

In an elite suburb of New York City, girls are dying. That doesn’t happen in Greenvale, with its immaculate lawns, exclusive yacht clubs and multi-million dollar mansions. But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse.

Bella DeFranco is one of the Bronx’s top SVU detectives. At only 37, she disarms everyone with her stunning good looks, yet she is as tough as most men—and a lot smarter, too. Yet when is summoned to Greenvale, she finds herself getting lost in a case that even she can’t comprehend. She stumbles into a land of secrets, a place where husbands hide their pasts from their wives, where friends are not what they seem, and where no one wants to know too much. As she digs deeper into layers of suburban dysfunction, she comes to learn that, behind all the fake smiles, there is a subtle violence--rivaling even her crime-ridden streets of the Bronx.

With a killer on the loose, time running out, and a new partner who never recovered from his washed-up alcoholic days, the odds are stacked against Bella. She is determined, though, to save these girls, whatever the cost. Yet as she gets close, the depth of psychosis she discovers shocks even her….

“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.”
--Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone)

“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success. The plot is very intelligent and will keep you entertained throughout the book. Full of twists, this book will keep you awake until the turn of the last page.”
--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone)

Women are turning up dead in the rural outskirts of Virginia, killed in grotesque ways, and when the FBI is called in, they are stumped. A serial killer is out there, his frequency increasing, and they know there is only one agent good enough to crack this case: Special Agent Riley Paige.

Riley is on paid leave herself, recovering from her encounter with her last serial killer, and, fragile as she is, the FBI is reluctant to tap her brilliant mind. Yet Riley, needing to battle her own demons, comes on board, and her hunt leads her through the disturbing subculture of doll collectors, into the homes of broken families, and into the darkest canals of the killer’s mind. As Riley peels back the layers, she realizes she is up against a killer more twisted than she could have imagined. In a frantic race against time, she finds herself pushed to her limit, her job on the line, her own family in danger, and her fragile psyche collapsing.

Yet once Riley Paige takes on a case, she will not quit. It obsesses her, leading her to the darkest corners of her own mind, blurring the lines between hunter and hunted. After a series of unexpected twists, her instincts lead her to a shocking climax that even Riley could not have imagined.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE GONE marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

Book #2 in the Riley Paige series is also now available!

In einem elitären Vorort von New York, sterben zwei Mädchen. So etwas passiert nicht in Geenvale, mit seinen gepflegten Gärten, exklusiven Yachtclubs und Millionen-Dollar-Häusern. Aber hinter seiner perfekten Fassade, hinter den geschnittenen Hecken und Luxusautos, liegt etwas Dunkles. Junge Mädchen, abhängig von Adderall, spielen sich gegeneinander aus, um von einem der besten Colleges angenommen zu werden, und das Bedürfnis ihrer Mütter, sie dabei zu unterstützen als ginge es um sie selbst, machte es nur noch schlimmer.
Bella DeFranco ist eine der besten Kriminalbeamtinnen der Abteilung „Besondere Opfer“ in der Bronx. Mit gerade mal 37 Jahren, nimmt sie jeden für sich ein durch ihr gutes Aussehen, dabei ist sie genauso tapfer wie die meisten Männer, und klüger als die meisten.

Aber als sie nach Geenvale geschickt wird, scheint sie sich in einem Fall zu verlieren, den nicht einmal sie versteht. Sie stolpert durch ein Land voller Geheimnisse, einen Ort, an dem Ehemänner ihre Vergangenheit vor ihren Frauen verstecken, wo Freundinnen nicht das sind, was sie scheinen, und wo sich niemand großartig für irgendetwas interessiert. Während sie sich immer weiter durch die Missstände in der Vorstadt durcharbeitet, findet sie heraus, dass sich hinter all den aufgesetzten Lächeln eine raffinierte Art der Gewalt versteckt - die es sogar mit den Straßen ihrer Bronx aufnehmen kann.

Mit einem frei herumlaufenden Mörder, unter großem Zeitdruck und mit einem neuen Partner, der sich nie ganz von seiner gescheiterten Zeit als Alkoholiker erholen konnte, stehen die Chancen nicht besonders gut für Bella. Aber sie ist trotzdem fest entschlossen, die Mädchen zu retten, egal zu welchem Preis. Und trotzdem, als sie dem Fall näher kommt, ist sogar sie von dem Grad an Psychosen, den sie entdeckt, schockiert….

The Future of Just War: New Critical Essays (Studies in Security and International Affairs Ser.)

Best price for this book: $ 18.79

Buy

Just War scholarship has adapted to contemporary crises and situations. But its adaptation has spurned debate and conversation―a method and means of pushing its thinking forward. Now the Just War tradition risks becoming marginalized. This concern may seem out of place as Just War literature is proliferating, yet this literature remains welded to traditional conceptualizations of Just War. Caron E. Gentry and Amy E. Eckert argue that the tradition needs to be updated to deal with substate actors within the realm of legitimate authority, private military companies, and the questionable moral difference between the use of conventional and nuclear weapons. Additionally, as recent policy makers and scholars have tried to make the Just War criteria legalistic, they have weakened the tradition’s ability to draw from and adjust to its contemporaneous setting.

The essays in The Future of Just War seek to reorient the tradition around its core concerns of preventing the unjust use of force by states and limiting the harm inflicted on vulnerable populations such as civilian noncombatants. The pursuit of these challenges involves both a reclaiming of traditional Just War principles from those who would push it toward greater permissiveness with respect to war, as well as the application of Just War principles to emerging issues, such as the growing use of robotics in war or the privatization of force. These essays share a commitment to the idea that the tradition is more about a rigorous application of Just War principles than the satisfaction of a checklist of criteria to be met before waging “just” war in the service of national interest.
