From the New York Times bestselling author of Blind Faith comes the first book in the Angels of Mercy seriesa gripping behind-the-scenes drama of four women who face life and death every day…

July 1st—Transition Day. The most dangerous day of the year. The day staff at Pittsburgh’s Angels of Mercy Hospital braces for the arrival of the cocky, untested new interns. It’s also the first day for L.A. transplant Dr. Lydia Fiore, the new ER attending physician. Not a good day to lose a patient—especially not the Chief of Surgery’s son. Now, to save her career, Lydia must discover the truth behind her patient's death, even as it leads her into unfamiliar—and risky—territory.

At least she’s not alone. There’s med student Amanda, a sweet Southern belle with problems of her own; Gina, a resident with a chip on her shoulder; and Nora, the take-charge charge nurse with a cool head but a fiery temper. Not to mention the paramedic who’d like to try his bedside manner out on Lydia. The four women will learn to depend on each other in their fight to save lives—because sometimes everyone needs a lifeline...


Lifelines includes a teaser for the second Angels of Mercy novel, Warning Signs.

“There’s an oath doctors take,” Detective Mickey Drake said.
“Primum non nocere,” the shrink supplied. “First do no harm.”

Two months ago Dr. Cassandra Hart was forced to kill a man. The man who murdered her best friend, almost killed Drake and seriously wounded her. Now she’s back at work in her Pittsburgh ER, but nothing seems the same.
 
When she fears that a young boy is being abused by his “perfect” mother, her friends and colleagues worry that she’s returned to work too soon, imagining dangers that don’t exist. Others accuse her of trying to cover up her own alleged mistakes in the boy’s treatment by making a false report of abuse.
 
Drake’s facing problems of his own, trying to cope with the aftermath of the night two months ago when his passion for Cassie led to a confrontation with a killer. He’s on desk duty, reviewing cold cases, and delves into the homicide case that killed his father seven years ago. But after so long, what good can he do, a cop without a gun?
 
The stakes escalate when Cassie is almost killed and Drake finds evidence that the killer his father was tracking might be planning to strike again–this time targeting a young boy.
 
With the lives of two children at stake, how can they walk away?

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Meltzer is a master and this is his best. Not since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo have you seen a character like this. Get ready to meet Nola. If you've never tried Meltzer, this is the one."--Harlan Coben

WHO IS NOLA BROWN? Nola is a mystery Nola is trouble. And Nola is supposed to be dead.
Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run.
Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig's daughter and someone who once saved his daughter's life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he's determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola's past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes.
Nola is the U.S. Army's artist-in-residence-a painter and trained soldier who rushes into battle, making art from war's aftermath and sharing observations about today's wars that would otherwise go overlooked. On her last mission, Nola saw something nobody was supposed to see, earning her an enemy unlike any other, one who will do whatever it takes to keep Nola quiet.
Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army's most mysterious secret-a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.
After all that they’ve been through, no one would deny that Hart and Drake deserve a happily-ever-after life together.
 
But, on the eve of their Christmas wedding, a threat long buried returns to threaten them. Not just their happiness, not only their lives, but everything they hold dear.
 
Separated and desperate to save each other, untangling a knot of mystery dating back to Hart’s Gram Rosa’s fight against the Nazis, and facing an enemy unlike any they’ve encountered before, both must search their hearts to find the strength to survive.
 
Meet the ER doctor who never quits…and the detective who will never give up on the love they share.
 
An unforgettable finale for an unforgettable couple who prove that two wounded souls have the power to save each other.
