NEW! from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons:

After surviving her serial killer father, Morgan Ames has her first chance at a life without killing.

Until temptation crosses her path as she’s working at an anonymous call center and realizes someone there is playing vigilante…and getting away with murder.

Morgan’s fascinated, unable to look away as the killer grows bolder.

Only Morgan sees the pattern, only Morgan has any idea the vigilante exists, and they’re never going to stop killing—unless Morgan stops them.

But should Morgan accept that sometimes the only way to get justice is outside of the law? Should she join forces with the vigilante and return to her old life of murder and mayhem? Or risk her new life trying to stop them?

CJ Lyons
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons, a new installment in her award-winning thriller-suspense series featuring Lucy Guardino:

A secret buried in an open grave returns to haunt a small town…

When divers discover an antique car with a skeleton inside, the Beacon Group dispatches TK O’Connor to lead the investigation into the sixty-year-old cold case.

It’s TK’s first chance at lead investigator and the former Marine is determined not to let her team down. But, almost as soon as she arrives in the downtrodden rustbelt city, her challenges mount.

First, there’s the issue of identifying the man inside the car. Who was he and why did he seemingly drive off a cliff into a quarry, leaving no trace of his life behind?

Then, there’s the brewing racial tensions in the city. A white police officer is on trial for shooting a black man and the verdict is due any minute. When a second killing occurs, TK suddenly finds herself at the center of a new investigation while the town literally explodes around her.

As protesters storm the once peaceful town, it’s up to TK and her boss, Lucy Guardino, to untangle the truth, both past and present. But is the truth powerful enough to stop the violence before any one else is killed?

OPEN GRAVE is the ninth Lucy Guardino novel, but they can be read out of order. If you enjoy captivating suspense, intelligent storytelling, strong and vulnerable characters, and a freight-train pace, then you'll love this adrenaline rush of a heart-pounding thriller from "a master of the genre."

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons.
 
After leaving the FBI, life should be easy, right? Wrong—not if you’re Lucy Guardino.
 
Lucy has always seen herself as a normal Pittsburgh soccer mom who happened to have a job chasing the worst of the worst. But after a violent predator targets her family and she’s injured, Lucy sacrifices her career with the FBI in order to keep her family safe.
 
What is she now that she’s no longer a FBI Special Agent? she wonders as she begins her new job with the Beacon Group, a private consulting firm that specializes in cold cases and bringing justice to forgotten victims. Lucy fears she’s traded being a kick-ass law enforcement officer for being a civilian mother hen shepherding a team of amateurs.
 
Her fears appear justified when she’s partnered with TK O’Connor, a former Marine MP struggling with her transition to life back home, and sent to rural Texas to investigate a case that’s more than cold, it’s already been closed with the killers behind bars for the past twenty-nine years.

But…who really killed Lily Martin, her infant daughter, and husband? Why was an entire family targeted for annihilation?
 
What price will Lucy pay when she fights to expose a truth people will kill to keep buried?
 
LAST LIGHT is the seventh Lucy Guardino novel, but they can be read out of order. If you enjoy captivating suspense, intelligent storytelling, strong and vulnerable characters, and a freight-train pace, then you'll love this adrenaline rush of a heart-pounding thriller.

“CJ Lyons scores a major triumph with FAREWELL TO DREAMS. Totally absorbing and impossible to put down.” ~Douglas Preston, #1 NYT bestselling author
 
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons, the second in her Fatal Insomnia Medical Thriller series.
 
I may be dying, but I’ve finally found someone to live for…
 
It’s been a sleepless month since Dr. Angela Rossi was diagnosed with Fatal Insomnia after a not-quite-dead nun reached out directly to Angela’s mind and set her on the path to hunt down a serial killer.
 
After learning she only has a few months left to live, Angela has left the ER and has one final case to testify at for the Advocacy Center. As soon as she brings justice to her last victim, a woman who was raped and brutalized seven months ago, Angela plans to take control of what little time she has left by escaping the sullen Pennsylvania December to a remote tropical island and ending it all on her terms. Her one regret is leaving Detective Matthew Ryder—he’s been her solace in the midst of the chaos her life has deteriorated into.
 
When the rape victim is murdered on the day she’s scheduled to testify and the rapist goes free without naming his accomplices, Angela makes it her mission to bring him to justice…one way or the other.
 
She’s helped by streetwise Devon Price, who doesn’t care about the law but does care about justice. He argues that Angela could be the perfect vigilante if she wanted, given that she no longer has anything to lose or to fear.
 
When a loved one is targeted, Angela is forced to betray everything she holds dear in an effort to stop the killers. Unfortunately, there’s a thin line between justice and vengeance.
