Down to a Sunless Sea (Tiller Galloway Thriller #4)

by David Poyer

Cave diving is the most psychologically challenging and physically dangerous "adventure sport": a twisting, claustrophobic journey down submerged limestone tunnels no wider at times than the body, opening into lightless caverns as desolate and beautiful as the dark side of the moon. In this fourth thriller featuring black-sheep salvage diver and ex-SEAL Lyle "Tiller" Galloway, David Poyer has written some of the most exciting underwater action scenes in recent fiction. Tiller is broke and desperate when he gets a call for help. A Vietnam pal, Bud Kusczk, has died in a diving accident. His widow, Monica, needs Tiller's savvy to temporarily manage Bud's scuba business in Florida. At the same time, Tiller's estranged son, Tad-who has taken after his father in running from the law-shows up at his door. Together they leave Cape Hatteras for north Florida, and the submerged caves in which Bud drowned. Tiller is intrigued by these mysterious caves, and tempted too by alluring Monica Kusczk. But Monica can't explain how Bud's business produced such huge profits. At the same time, Tad discovers danger above ground, when he spies on a group of powerful men who seem well stocked with cash, drugs, and automatic weapons. As Tiller learns more about the mysterious world of the caves, and their link to Florida's vanishing aquifers, he begins to suspect that his friend's death was no accident-and that the truth lies hidden somewhere deep beneath the ground, in airless and bewildering passages that claimed the life of his friend.

Dr. Death (Alex Delaware #14)

by Jonathan Kellerman

Who killed the killer? In his brilliant and startling new novel, Jonathan Kellerman, perennial bestselling author and premier proprietor of the psychological thriller, gives a sharp and timely twist to homicide's central question.Someone has murdered euthanasia champion Dr. Eldon Mate--a self-styled Dr. Death responsible for scores of assisted suicides. In a burst of bloody irony, the killer chooses to dispatch the doctor in the back of Mate's own suicide van, hooking him up to the killing apparatus dubbed "the Humanitron"--and adding some butchering touches of his own. The case is assigned to veteran LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis, who turns, once again, to his friend Dr. Alex Delaware. But working this case raises a conflict of interest for Alex so profound that he can't even discuss it with Milo. The tension that develops between cop and psychologist further complicates an already baffling and complex murder investigation--one whose suspects include the families of Dr. Mate's "travelers," Mate's own son, and a psychopathic killer who relishes the geometry of death. Dr. Death is a rich brew of unforgettable characters, labyrinthine plotting, page-turning prose, and the unique insights into the darkest corners of the human mind that have earned Jonathan Kellerman international accolades as the master of psychological suspense.From the Hardcover edition.

She is, however, shocked when her favorite vet-school professor, the elderly Hiram Bechtold, warns that she is about to be questioned in a murder. A client Dr. Bechtold had sent to Didi--the rich owner of an ultramodern pig farm--was brutally slain in his Philadelphia home.

Didi, smelling a rat--or at least a pig--in this dirty case, must move fast before she becomes dead meat. Going after the truth means reaching whole hog into secrets, greedy motives, and perhaps some swinish passions that can get an innocent vet tried--or fried--for a crime she didn't do." Animals populate all of Didi's adventures and are described with warmth and knowledge as Didi, a rural vet, goes about getting herself into and out of trouble as she investigates murders she happens to stumble upon unexpectedly at locations like a farmyard, a circus, and a gala ball.
