MELTING STEELE

Fans of John Grisham, Janet Evanovich, Michael Connelly, and James Patterson will love this legal suspense thriller series by Aaron Patterson.

BREAKING STEELE
Who is Sarah Steele? The successful, happy ADA or the wild, angry vigilante?

Sarah Steele has a lot to prove. Foster care brat turned successful Assistant District Attorney, she's enjoying her magical pumpkin carriage ride but knows she is only one mistake away from landing on the curb. When she's given an open-and-shut case regarding multi-millionaire Hank Williams and his murder of young Tracy Mulligan, Sarah's determined to win. But when everything goes wrong, and there's a killer on the loose, she isn't prepared for who the real battle is against: herself. Is she really willing to do anything to take Hank Williams down?

TWISTING STEELE
Sarah Steele needs a vacation from her high-profile job as an ADA, so she goes with her best friend on a trip they've always dreamed of to Rio De Janeiro. The vacation is off to a great start; surfing, swimming, reading, and dancing, but then their little piece of heaven takes a hellish turn. Sarah witnesses The Blondes, a mysterious group of female criminals who specialize in micro-kidnapping, capture a State Representative's wife. It was supposed to be simple, the police say the victims are always released within a few hours. But when the woman's found dead in a dumpster, Sarah swears The Blondes will receive justice. And she'll be the one to give it. But as things get more twisted than she ever imagined, does she have what it takes to bring them down?

MELTING STEELE
Sarah Steele is back in Boise but after a fight with her boss and the DA, Dan Butler she gets put on administrative leave. Sarah decides to take on a new case on the side, and see how it works out--maybe this is her ticket out of the DA's office. Pushed into a murder on a nearby Indian reservation, Sarah tried to help out an NPR reporter who is wrongfully imprisoned. Before she knows what she got herself into Sarah finds herself fighting for her life, and her dark side comes to the light and she has to choose between doing what is right and what feels right.

"Full of thrills and tension - but smart and human too." — Lee Child , #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Killing Floor and other Jack Reacher Thrillers


Judge Willa Carson’s mother Kate Austin’s new husband, a hot Italian model, lures Willa into investigating a thirty-year old murder. When no-nonsense Federal Judge Wilhelmina Carson is presented with the facts of the case she’s convinced that Billie Jo Steam is innocent.


Determined to right the wrongs of a justice system in which she believes, and to please Kate no matter what, Willa pulls out all the stops, including the use of genetic testing and her most distinguished political connections, to give Billie Jo back her family and her freedom.


But there isn’t much time to celebrate…


The deeper Willa delves into this timeworn case and the complex relationships that surround it, the more she realizes that there are still many people in Tampa — from pillars of the community, to old hippies, to friends and co-workers — who will do whatever it takes to keep the past buried. Judge Willa stays on the long, cold trail until truth prevails at the very end of the road and Kate makes a killing.

Descrizione del libro:
“Uccidere ha delle conseguenze” è il secondo libro della serie “Amicizia e Onore.”
So che sembra strano sentire la parola omicidio nella stessa frase con amicizia e onore, ma è esattamente questa discordanza che viene esplorata in questa serie. Si tratta di due ragazzi che sono cresciuti come migliori amici, quasi fratelli, ma uno è diventato un poliziotto, l’altro un sicario.
Vi siete mai domandati quanto si possa spingere in là un’amicizia prima che si spezzi?
Trent’anni prima, quattro ragazzi fecero il giuramento di essere amici per sempre e di guardarsi sempre le spalle reciprocamente. In “Uccidere richiede tempo”, il primo libro della serie, quel giuramento spinse uno dei ragazzi a una morte precoce e un altro a nascondersi. Solo due hanno continuato la propria vita ma il giuramento rimane.
Le parole di Nicky Fusco dettano il tema per il secondo libro:
“I giuramenti sono qualcosa che fai quando sei giovane e desidereresti non aver fatto una volta diventato adulto.”
Quanto vi spingereste oltre per onorare un giuramento fatto quando avevate otto anni? Quanto sacrifichereste? E se onorarlo comportasse rompere una promessa che avete fatto a vostra moglie? O a Dio?
Quando il Detective Frankie Donovan finisce nei guai e la legge non può aiutarlo, si rivolge al suo migliore amico, Nicky Fusco. Il problema è che Nicky ha promesso alla sua famiglia e a Dio che avrebbe rigato dritto.
La maggior parte della gente non crede che i criminali abbiano onore; queste storie potrebbero far loro cambiare idea.
