 153 years in the future the earth doesn’t look much like it used to.

Holly Danger’s current assignment, gleaned from a set of foggy instructions and a handful of coin stuffed into a slot, is to pick up a street kid who’s about to terminate himself off a cliff. And, as a rule, she doesn’t turn down coin. Her job as a salvager keeps her fed and clothed above the norm, which isn’t saying much.

The norm in this city is a scrape-by existence in a post-apocalyptic world, where the rain never dies, food is always scarce, and the elite have deserted the ranks in search of something better. Picking up the urchin won’t take her much time, even if he’s located outside city limits. Her craft is fast, her weapons deadly, and her tech has been optimized as well as it can be for a climate clogged with iron dust.

But things take a big turn when she decides to keep the boy instead of hand him over. Outskirts have descended on the city and their plans don’t include playing nice. It’s a good thing her Gem is primed and ready to go. Her laser fire is almost as deadly as she is…

For fans of Craig Johnson and James Lee Burke—False Positive follows up the powerful punch of Andrew Grant’s novel RUN with a staggering second dose of thrills and suspense that is just as smart, atmospheric, and soul-searing.
 
Alabama detective Cooper Devereaux makes no apologies for his luxe lifestyle or the way he does his job. Most cops haven’t lived the kind of life he has—starting out as an orphan, raised by a grizzled cop savior—and most don’t use his kind of high-risk tactics. But he may have met his match in fellow detective Jan Loflin, who’s fresh off a long undercover stint in Vice when they’re partnered on a case that will test them both beyond their direst nightmares.
 
A seven-year-old boy has disappeared from his home in the Birmingham suburbs. But the more Devereaux digs into the missing child’s background, the more he discovers about his own, eventually shaking loose a series of harrowing truths—about bloodlines, mass murder, obsession, and what two damaged detectives have in common with the innocent victim they’re so desperate to save. This twisty page-turner—the debut of the Detective Cooper Devereaux series—hurtles at a mile a minute through an action-packed search for a missing child, culminating in an ending that no reader will see coming.

Praise for False Positive
 
“A fast-moving thriller . . . Readers who like defects in their heroes will love this guy, who knows he’s not as good as he’d like to be. The final twist comes just as all finally seems well with the world. A dark, enjoyable novel. One of Grant’s better works.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Smashing.”—Booklist
 
“Engrossing . . . Action-driven, the book’s pace never stops until the startling conclusion, which will chill to the core.”—RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)
 
Praise for Andrew Grant’s RUN

“High stakes, high tension, and nonstop action . . . Hang on and enjoy this smart, original, and fast-paced adventure.”—Hank Phillippi Ryan
 
“Relentless, twisty, and blistering fast, it’s a book you don’t dare start at bedtime.”—Sean Chercover
 
“A whizbang of a novel with just the right dose of smart-ass.”—Chelsea Cain
 
“Breathtakingly fast-paced.”—Harlan Coben
 
“A perfect thriller—smart, fast, and blazing with nonstop surprises.”—Robert Crais


From the Hardcover edition.
NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, ELLE CASEY, brings readers Book 1 of DRIFTERS' ALLIANCE, an ongoing Science Fiction Space Opera series.

One hand of cards and it's all over but the crying...

Cass Kennedy finally gets what she's been dreaming of for the past ten years: a drifter ship to call her own. All the sim time and battle training is going to pay off in spades as she sets her course for the future. She'll be living on her own terms, not those of her father.

But drifting through deep space with a crew of nutty strangers on the DS Anarchy carries a lot more surprises than she bargained for. Nobody told her that her ship is falling apart, that dead chickens are something you really want to hang on to, and that the OSG has big plans for the universe that don't necessarily jibe with her plans for herself.

Jump onboard with Cass and her crew as she charts a course toward an alliance that will either make her or break her as Captain of the DS Anarchy.

SERIES: This is Book 1 in an ongoing series. Books 2 and 3 are now available. More books coming for this series in 2016!
GENRE: Science Fiction, Space Opera
AUDIENCE: For older teens and adults
CONTENT WARNING: Colorful language, sexy stuff, and general badassery

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DRIFTERS' ALLIANCE, BOOK 1:

“I couldn't put it down! The feel of the story reminded me of FIREFLY! So for you sci fi geeks like me I would say this book is SHINEY! for everyone else its a great story and I enjoyed it a lot. I highly recommend buying it, you won’t be sorry.” ~ Deanna, Amazon reviewer

“Page turner… Just like with other books by Elle Casey once I picked this book up I couldn't put it down and before I knew it I was done… I can't wait to see what happens next. In fact I have already pre-ordered book 2. Happy reading.”  ~ Jana La Pelle, Goodreads reviewer

“Drifters’ Alliance is very different than Elle Casey's other work, but it is still just as amazing! Elle has a talent for making the characters come alive... I can't wait for the next book in this series. If you have never read sci-fi or space operas before this is the one to start with!” ~ Ken Kennedy, Goodreads reviewer

“Hooked! Absolutely, positively LOVED it! Devoured it in a few hours and now I'm craving more. As usual, with Elle's strong writing and blend of humor packed into a butt-kicking female heroine, you're going to get a great story. Also typical of her writing, it will be easy to get lost in this world.” ~ Laura Shipp, Amazon reviewer
