Someone has decided that the wages of sin should be death...and it is up to Chief Inspector Adam Dalgliesh to find who that someone is. <P> A Mind to Murder:<P> On the surface, the Steen Psychiatric Clinic is one of the most reputable institutions in London. But when the administrative head is found dead with a chisel in her heart, that distinguished facade begins to crumble as the truth emerges. Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard is called in to investigate and quickly finds himself caught in a whirlwind of psychiatry, drugs, and deceit. Now he must analyze the deep-seated anxieties and thwarted desires of patients and staff alike to determine which of their unresolved conflicts has resulted in murder and stop a cunning killer before the next blow. <P> Unnatural Causes:<P> Maurice Seton was a famous mystery writer--but no murder he ever invented was more grisly than his own death. When his corpse is found in a drifting dinghy with both hands chopped off at the wrists, ripples of horror spread among his bizarre circle of friends. Now it's up to brilliant Scotland Yard inspector, Adam Dalgliesh, and his extraordinary aunt to uncover the shocking truth behind the writer's death sentence, before the plot takes another murderous turn. <P> Shroud for a Nightingale:<P> The young women of Nightingale House are there to learn to nurse and comfort the suffering. But when one of the students plays patient in a demonstration of nursing skills, she is horribly, brutally killed. Another student dies equally mysteriously, and it is up to Adam Dalgliesh of Scotland Yard to unmask a killer who has decided to prescribe murder as the cure for all ills. <P> The Black Tower:<P> Just recovered from a grave illness, Commander Adam Dalgliesh is called to the bedside of an elderly priest. When Dalgliesh arrives, Father Baddeley is dead. Is it merely his own brush with mortality that causes Dalgliesh to sense the shadow of death about to fall once more? <P> Death of an Expert:<P> When a brilliant forensic scientist is found murdered in his own laboratory, Scotland Yard is called to the scene. The victim, a well-respected, authoritative member of the scientific community, was unpleasant to and greatly disliked by those who worked closest to him, leaving detectives with a wealth of suspects and murderous motives.

From the back of the book: Beast of the East! From Atlanta to Alaska to the exotic shores of Indonesia, Frank and Joe Hardy have penetrated the inner sanctum of a worldwide terrorist network: the Assassins. Now drawn into the enemy's lair, the Hardy's face their greatest challenge and greatest risk-to uncover the true purpose and power of the violent criminal conspiracy. Trapped deep in the Indonesian jungle, their covers blown, the boys can't afford to turn back. They confront a force so potent, an intelligence so evil, there's no time to seek reinforcements. Braving the heights of terror, Frank and Joe alone will have to defuse an explosive scheme that could erupt into a catastrophe of global proportions! ============== From inside the book: LAND OF THE LOST Frank stared down from the wall at the yard below. It was almost empty, except for a stone sculpture of a small dinosaur at one end, away from the building. Before Frank could say anything, Joe jumped off the wall, somersaulting as he landed and rolling to his feet. Frank shrugged and jumped too, landing the same way his brother had. "Now let's see if we can find a way in," Frank said. "Maybe around back-" "Frank." Joe's arm shot out across his brother's chest, stopping Frank dead in his tracks. He pointed across the yard. "I don't think that's a statue." The statue was moving toward them. "It's alive," Frank said, not believing his own words. He watched the creature as it came closer to them. It had to be at least eight feet long and weigh several hundred pounds. "That's no dinosaur . . . it's a Komodo dragon ... a man-eater!"
