A beautiful young woman is found dead and her cop husband is shot in the head, but still alive. Murder suicide? Maybe.
Parker serves up another Orange County, CA, police procedural, this time pairing retired expert cop Tim Hess with brash young detective Merci Rayborn. They're an unlikely team fighting a nasty serial killer who abducts wealthy, attractive women, eviscerates them, and then apparently saves their bodies. What is even more unlikely is that a 70-year-old retiree fighting lung cancer could take orders from and work effectively with an ambitious woman half his age.
The Orange County, California, that the Becker brothers knew as boys is no more--unrecognizably altered since the afternoon in 1954 when Nick, Clay, David, and Andy rumbled with the lowlife Vonns, while five-year-old Janelle Vonn watched from the sidelines. The new decade has ushered in the era of Johnson, hippies, John Birchers, and LSD. Clay becomes a casualty of a far-off jungle war. Nick becomes a cop, Andy a reporter, David a minister. And a terrible crime touches them all in ways they could never have anticipated when the mutilated corpse of teenage beauty queen Janelle Vonn is discovered in an abandoned warehouse.
A real thriller about a millionaire who was bludgeoned to death. He had a lot of enemies, but the prime suspect was his pretty nurse.
The third of the three volumes of Brunner's Dogmatics, one of the great twentieth-century works of theology, covers the doctrine of Church, Faith, and Consummation. The books present a profoundly biblical systematic theology, finding a path between the ideas of Barth and Bultmann. Volume III covers the nature of the Church as a reflection of God's self-revelation through the Holy Spirit, and the Consummation in eternity of the Divine Self-Communication. All three volumes are available from Bookshare.
A good cop, Robbie Brownlaw was thrown from a sixth-floor window of a downtown hotel and miraculously survived. The traumatic incident left Robbie with a fast-track career in the San Diego P.D.'s Homicide division . . . and a rare neurological condition that enables him to see people's emotional words as colored shapes--green trapezoids of envy, red squares of deception . . . Another good man lies dead in a blood-splattered Ford Explorer--an ex-cop-turned-ethics investigator whose private life was torn open by unthinkable tragedy. Whether Garrett Asplundh's death was suicide or murder isn't immediately apparent--but it's soon clear to Robbie and his smart, tough partner, McKenzie Cortez, that Garrett had hard evidence of sex, scandal, and corruption spreading deep into local government. But pursuing the truth could prove more emotionally devastating than Robbie ever imagined.
Los Angeles is gripped by a modern-day Jesse James, Allison Murietta. Nobody ever gets hurt until a job ends with ten gangsters lying dead and a half-million dollars worth of diamonds missing

But his seaside beat becomes a frightening countdown on the night someone begins burning Laguna Beach's first citizens to death. Among the targets are the founders of California's Riviera, a mysterious circle of women and men with a secret they are apparently dying to keep. For Shephard, the trail of the "Fire Killer" twists from sparkling marinas to the blacked-out perdition of a deserted beachfront hotel in another country. There, Shephard's quarry and tormentor awaits him--with a gun and a lighted candle. With its tempo of hot pursuit, startling switchbacks of plot, and unforgettable love scenes, Laguna Heat is a superbly evocative and satisfying thriller.
John Weir, and his brother-in-law Raymond, battle corrupt police, development-at-all-cost advocates, and a known sex offender when they try to find the murderer of John's beloved sister.
Some say that outlaws no longer exist, that the true spirit of the American West died with the legendary bandits of pulp novels and bedtime stories. Deputy Charlie Hood knows that nothing could be further from the truth. These days he patrols vast stretches of the new American West, not on horseback but in his police cruiser.
Joe Trona is scarred in more ways than one. Rescued from an orphanage by Will Trona, a charismatic politician who sensed his dark potential, Joe is swept into the maelstrom of influence and intimidation that surrounds his adoptive father's career.
Matt Stromsoe has come a long way since his wife and son were killed in an explosion meant for him. Wounded severely in both body and spirit, Stromsoe gave up the last thing that held any meaning for him-his job on the police force-and proceeded to hit rock bottom, hard. That was a lifetime ago, and finally the spiral of personal destruction and despair seems to have come to an end. The man responsible for the murders-Stromsoe's best friend from childhood and his wife's old lover-is behind bars and Stromsoe has put the past behind him, rescued from the abyss by a former colleague who offers him a job at his private security firm. Stromsoe's first assignment is to protect local television personality Frankie Hatfield from a stalker. But the further Stromsoe is drawn into this case, the more he finds that the net of intrigue is wide and ultimately leads back to the man who killed his family. As events conspire against him, Stromsoe learns that prison is no safeguard against revenge. T. Jefferson Parker has been hailed as belonging "in the first rank of American crime novelists" (Washington Post Book World) and praised for "some of the finest writing you'll ever read" (Chicago Sun-Times). Superbly crafted, emotionally complex, and filled with heart-stopping action, Storm Runners proves why the novels of T. Jefferson Parker are impossible to resist.
