Deadfall

by Robert Scott

Strangler's Kill John Annibel, 40, was the bad half of a set of twins. James stayed out of trouble. . .but John, with his hair-trigger temper and paranoia, was different. On Thanksgiving weekend, 1998, Debbie Sloan, 42, sat down next to a stranger in a bar. She wound up gasping her life away, slowly strangled to death by Annibel. He then dumped her nude body in a ravine in North California's secluded redwood forests. In September, 1999, thanks to the efforts of Mendocino County investigators, Annibel was convicted of Debbie Sloan's murder. But what of his other alleged crimes? Wilderness Slayer In 1976, 15-year-old Sherry Lynn Smith was last seen alive heading toward Annibel's car. In 1980, Annibel's live-in girlfriend Andrea LaDeRoute vanished--until her skull was discovered in 2002. Georgina Pacheco was found raped and strangled in 1988. Trail Of Lies When the sisters of Sherry Lynn Smith and Andrea LaDeRoute teamed up to uncover the truth behind why earlier investigations of Annibel's activities in Humboldt County failed, what they found was possibly a trail of lies and criminality that defied the wildest fiction. As layer upon layer of deception was stripped away, new questions would be raised: Why were so many people willing to protect this man--and would he ever be brought to justice?

The Deadhouse

by Linda Fairstein

One of the most haunting buildings in New York City, and perhaps the most dramatically beautiful, the Deadhouse sits on a small island in the middle of the East River. The abandoned structure, like the ghostly remains of a castle, plays in the imagination as a site of mystery and intrigue...a likely place for murder. Following on the bestselling success of Cold Hit, Likely to Die, and Final Jeopardy, top Manhattan sex crimes DA Linda Fairstein brings her unique blend of authenticity and style to a mesmerizing tale of murder and deceit. It's the holiday season but there's little reason for cheer at one of New York's most elite colleges. A respected professor is dead; strangled and dumped in an elevator shaft. Lola Dakota's lifeless fingers clutch a few strands of hair, and a piece of paper in her pocket reads "The Deadhouse." What brought a distinguished academic to such a tragic end? Opportunistic murder seems unlikely as assistant DA Alexandra Cooper, working with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, uncovers a distressing pattern of betrayal and terror. There's proof that Lola's husband, Ivan, wanted her dead. He has an alibi, but could he have hired a killer? Or could one of Lola's colleagues have erupted into unexpected violence? Some of their stories don't quite ring true. And why did Lola have a photograph of twenty-year-old Charlotte Voight pinned to her office bulletin board? Charlotte left her dorm room eight months ago and vanished into the night. Is she dead? Could she and Lola have become victims of the same predator? Perhaps most puzzling of all are the words "The Deadhouse." What was Lola's connection to this desolate place where people once endured slow and agonizing deaths? And what danger awaits Alex there or on the streets of Manhattan as she targets Lola's killer? A richly nuanced synthesis of history and suspense, The Deadhouse showcases Linda Fairstein's immense talent as never before.

The Deadliest Denial

by Colleen Thompson

WHATEVER IT TAKES "Go ahead and take the pistol," Spence told Claire. "Hold it if you want to, or slip it in your pocket. Do whatever it takes so you'll feel safe enough to listen to me." "Spence," she breathed, as jumbled waves of emotion crashed into each other. Terror, love, regret...and beneath them all, a sickening awareness of the heavy scent of blood. "Do it, please." Fatigue underscored his blue eyes, but still, they looked straight at her. "Because that's all I ask, for you to listen." Trembling with revulsion, she picked up the weapon by its still-warm barrel, then dropped it into her pocket as quickly as if she were holding a live coal. Even so, she felt some of her equilibrium returning. She met his gaze head-on. "Give me one reason why I should."

Deadliest Sea

by Kalee Thompson

Soon after 2:00 A.M. on Easter morning, March 23, 2008, the fishing trawler Alaska Ranger began taking on water in the middle of the frigid Bering Sea. While the first mate broadcast Mayday calls to a remote Coast Guard station more than eight hundred miles away, the men on the ship's icy deck scrambled to inflate life rafts and activate the beacon lights, which would guide rescuers to them in the water. By 4:30 A.M., the wheelhouse of the Ranger was just barely visible above the sea's surface, and most of the forty-seven crew members were in the water, wearing the red survival suits--a number of them torn or inadequately sized--that were supposed to keep them from freezing to death. Every minute in the twenty-foot swells was a fight for survival. Many knew that if they weren't rescued soon, they would drown or freeze to death.Two Coast Guard helicopter rescue teams were woken up in the middle of the night to save the crew of the Alaska Ranger. Many of the men thought the mission would be routine. They were wrong. The helicopter teams battled snow squalls, enormous swells, and gale-force winds as they tried to fulfill one guiding principle: save as many as they could. Again and again, the helicopters lowered a rescue swimmer to the ocean's surface to bring the shipwrecked men, some delirious with hypothermia, some almost frozen to death, back to the helicopter and to safety. Before the break of dawn, the Coast Guard had lifted more than twenty men from the freezing waves--more than any other cold-water Coast Guard rescue in history.Deadliest Sea is a daring and mesmerizing adventure tale that chronicles the power of nature against man, and explores the essence of the fear each man and woman must face when confronted with catastrophe. It also investigates the shocking negligence that leads to the sinking of dozens of ships each year, which could be prevented and makes commercial fishing one of the most dangerous occupations in the world.With deft writing and technical knowledge, veteran journalist Kalee Thompson recounts the harrowing stories of both the rescuers and the rescued who survived the deadly ordeal in the Bering Sea. Along the way, she pays tribute to the courage, tenacity, and skill of dedicated service people who risk their own lives for the lives of others.
