A wealthy family shrouded in scandal; a detective tasked with solving an impossible cold case; and a woman with a dark past collide in Hannah Morrissey's stunning Black Harbor mystery, The Widowmaker. Ever since business mogul Clive Reynolds disappeared twenty years ago, the name "Reynolds" has become synonymous with "murder" and "mystery." And now, lured by a cryptic note, down-on-her-luck photographer Morgan Mori returns home to Black Harbor and into the web of their family secrets and double lives. The same night she photographs the Reynolds holiday get-together, Morgan becomes witness to a homicide of a cop that triggers the discovery of a long-buried clue. This could finally be the thing to crack open the chilling cold case, and Investigator Ryan Hudson has a chance to prove himself as lead detective. If only he could stop letting his need to solve his partner's recent murder distract him. But as Morgan exposes her own dark demons, could her sordid history be the key to unlocking more than one mystery?

In Paul Doiron's riveting novel Widowmaker, Game Warden Mike Bowditch is on the trail of a ruthless vigilante amid the snow-covered mountains of Maine When a mysterious woman in distress appears outside his home, Mike Bowditch has no clue she is about to blow his world apart. Amber Langstrom is beautiful, damaged, and hiding a secret with a link to his past. She claims her son Adam is a wrongfully convicted sex offender who has vanished from a brutal work camp in the high timber around the Widowmaker Ski Resort. She also claims that Adam is the illegitimate son of Jack Bowditch, Mike’s dead and diabolical father—and the half-brother Mike never knew he had. After trying so hard to put his troubled past behind him, Mike is reluctant to revisit the wild country of his childhood and again confront his father’s history of violence. But Amber’s desperation and his own need to know the truth leads Mike on a desperate search for answers—one that takes him through a mountainous wilderness where the military guards a top-secret interrogation base, sexual predators live together in a backwoods colony, and self-styled vigilantes are willing to murder anyone they consider their enemies. Can Mike finally exorcise the demons of the past—or will the real-life demons of the present kill him first?

One could never again glorify war after reading this book.” Hugo Trux, Marketing Director “I half-heartedly picked up Widowmaker one day and was quickly immersed into one of the most riveting real life adventures I have ever read.” The Honorable Jon Spahr, JD, Licking County Court, Ohio “I reluctantly picked up Widowmaker one day and couldn’t put it down. This is the best book I have ever read and believe it would make a great movie.” Jim Shulman, PhD, CEO (retired) “I usually don’t have time to read novels; however, I picked up Widowmaker and completed reading it in eight hours. It has been extremely helpful in my practice with treating PTSD and is one of the best books I have ever read.” Judith Box, MD, Psychiatrist “I was 7 years old when my brother served in Vietnam. Thirty years later, he still has never spoken a word about Vietnam. After reading Widowmaker, I understood his silence.

A bounty hunter has a legacy that he—and his clones—can’t escape in this explosive science fiction adventure from the Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author. After more than a century in deep freeze, Jefferson Nighthawk is waking up from his sleep, finally cured of the disease that almost killed him. Now sixty-two years old, he’s ready for a new kind of life, one of peace and quiet. The former bounty hunter has made enough widows, not to mention clones, one of whom still roams the galaxy . . . With his loyal trainer, Ito Kinoshita, by his side, Nighthawk looks for a place to settle down, to grow some flowers, and maybe even find a wife. What he isn’t expecting is to be hounded to the ends of the universe by the enemies his two clones have made and by bloodthirsty men out to make a reputation for themselves. Nighthawk and Kinoshita try to stay one step ahead of his pursuers, but when that doesn’t work, Nighthawk’s instincts take over—and the killing begins. There’s only one way to escape being the Widowmaker—and Nighthawk is just about desperate enough to try it . . .

The multiple Hugo Award-winning author resurrects the consummate bounty hunter in this action-packed novel of interstellar adventure. On Deluros VIII, Jefferson Nighthawk rests in DeepSleep until a cure is found for the disease that dooms him. At least, that would be the case if he wasn’t the Widowmaker, the most remarkable killing machine in the galaxy. There are those who will pay whatever it takes to hire a man with his talents. Or should we say clone . . . This isn’t the first time Nighthawk has been duplicated, but lessons have been learned. His previous clone was physically perfect but emotionally immature. This second clone is at the peak of his powers, imprinted with all of the memories of his sixty-one-year-old host. His new job: to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a powerful politician and kill her revolutionary captor. With a handpicked team of an empath, an alien dragon, and his trainer, Kinoshita, Nighthawk sets out for the Frontier. But then he learns the truth about the kidnapping—and the man who’s paying him. Now the future Nighthawk has dreamed of will only be possible if he can get out of his present situation alive . . .
