From First, Do No Harm, Dr. L. Jan Eira catapults readers into the gripping continuance of his medical murder mystery. With the release of his new book, Seconds from Revenge, he once again engages readers with medical hero Dr. Jack Norris, whose life is put in danger once again when an old enemy returns— bent on revenge. Several heinous murders had been committed at Newton Memorial using an investigational drug, which eventually became known as ‘Rat Poison.’ This experimental agent for heart failure patients was discovered to have deadly repercussions. Blinded by its potential lucrative rewards, three terrorists proceeded to test the drug on innocent men with much loss of life. With Dr. Norris’ cooperation with the authorities, one of the executioners was killed, the other incarcerated for life, but the third villain – the mastermind known as Simon Lagrange – is still at large. Having escaped the law, Lagrange is now back and looking for vengeance—with Dr. Norris as his object of enmity. The mystery plunges as Lagrange sabotages Norris’ credibility as a doctor, taking away many innocent lives without remorse. Co-workers of Norris helplessly fall prey to Lagrange’s sinister plan; nobody can be trusted, everyone is a suspect. Soon, reality becomes a nightmare when an unexpected assault was made on Dr. Norris’ life, nine-thousand feet above the ground. It was clear that Lagrange would stop at nothing to get him. Is Dr. Norris ready for the worst when he fi nds himself Seconds from Revenge? An arresting denouement awaits readers as Eira takes them deep into the story, confounding them with unexpected twists and revelations.

Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him---new from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly

Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, John Jack Thompson, is dead, and his widow gives Bosch a murder book, one that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD twenty years before -- the unsolved killing of a troubled young man.

Bosch takes the murder book to Detective Renée Ballard and asks her to help him discover what about this crime lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. As she begins her inqueries -- while still working her own cases on the midnight shift -- Ballad finds aspects of the initial investigation that just don't add up.

The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a disturbing question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?
Written with the intense pacing and masterful suspense that have made Michael Connelly "the hard-boiled fiction master of our time" (NPR), The Night Fire continues the unofficial partnership of two fierce detectives determined not to let the fire with burn out.
