Undercover DEA Agent Darius Kramer received an assignment to infiltrate, expose and take down the deadliest and most elusive drug family in New York City. The job requires his expertise, strategic moves, and no mistakes. But the DEA is not aware of one critical piece of information: its agent is the pawn in a lethal strategic game, where making mistakes is the only certainty. Closing the case is a race against time; every opponent's move could mean death and each of Darius' moves could cost him his life.

About the author

While working full-time as an Assistant Professor at Medgar Evers College in New York, part-time in her law practice, and meeting the demands of a new mother, Racquel Brown Gaston found time in the most silent hours - when most people are asleep - to complete her first novel: "Deadly Instincts," a suspense/thriller. Racquel was born in Falmouth, Trelawny, Jamaica. At age 14, she migrated to Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York. Shook by the culture and socio-economic change, Racquel developed her imaginary world as a means of escape. She attended Boston University, and studied International Relations. She then attended the University of Miami, School of Law, and completed her final year at Brooklyn Law School as a visiting student. With her devoted husband's nudging her to pursue her dreams as a writer, Racquel decided to share her gift of storytelling. She resides in Maryland with her husband and son.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death, by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art...

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”
