"SCORE . . . a TOP SHELF scandalous, witty, highly charged, suspense crime legal thriller series. In a perfect book world, this is my favorite genre..."PLEASE DO NOT STOP WRITING!"--JCollins

The Brody family destroyed her. Now they want her back. 


Losing the most high profile case of her career ironically made Casey Cort a winner. Well-heeled clients now knock on her door, and Tom Brody, her rich ex-boyfriend, wants her back. But entry into the upper echelon comes at a price. 


The newest assistant United States attorney, Miles Siegel, has set his sights on nailing a public figure he believes to be corrupt: Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court Judge Eamon Brody. But Brody’s brothers, one the presiding judge of the county, the other the state attorney general, aren’t about to let that happen. 


When Casey gets retained by single mom Claire Henshaw, to wrest custody from her son’s irresponsible father, Casey handles her first case before the controversial judge . . . and learns something that will force her to make the hardest decision of her life.  

In this installment of the Casey Cort series, Aime Austin—a former trial lawyer in Cleveland—weaves a tale that blends the best of today’s top legal thrillers with the heart and soul of women’s fiction, in a story ripped from real-world headlines.

Troy Duncan has just two worries on his mind: how he is going to give his two young children and fiancé a Christmas they deserve and whether his job at a struggling restaurant will last through the winter. As he leaves work early on another slow night, he runs into something that changes his life forever.

Cleveland Police Officer Marc Baldwin has been on the job for more than two decades, risking his life every day to keep the city streets safe for others. One cold night in December, he gets a routine call to break up drug activity in the newly popular Flats district, but what happens there is anything but routine, as circumstances prompt Marc to draw—and use—his service weapon.

Attorney Casey Cort is finally changing her life for the better. After an uplifting year of pro bono adoption work under her belt, she is hoping to start a practice free of the emotional turmoil and problems of criminal defense and divorce. Easier said than done, particularly when a new, high-profile referral comes from a most unlikely source. Once again, Casey finds herself in the middle of a major controversy—and a city on the verge of riot.

In this continuation of the Casey Cort series, Aime Austin—a former trial lawyer in Cleveland—weaves another tale that blends the best of today’s top legal thrillers with the heart and soul of women’s fiction, in a story ripped from real-world headlines.

Nasser Hashmi’s new political thriller sees a tabloid whistleblower expose phone hacking. Tabloid reporter Jamie Parkes doesn't mind getting his hands dirty when pursuing a story. He interprets voice messages, fabricates quotes and trawls through his web of contacts to find out more about the victims in the 9/11 disaster. But when one of his stories is mysteriously spiked, he begins to question the motives of his flamboyant editor, Warren Fitton. Fitton treats phone hacking and corruption allegations with breathtaking flippancy which leaves Jamie feeling uncomfortable. Confused by the alterations in his story, he decides to investigate further. He wants to know why his world exclusive was ditched and more importantly who is behind it. As he searches for evidence, he soon discovers that he has become the target and he is being framed. His whistleblower status turns into an epic battle for survival as the state, police and media hunt him down. Once a seasoned reporter, but now a wanted man. Jamie Parkes becomes the scapegoat for discrediting the tabloid empire. Wacko Hacko is a political thriller loosely based on the phone hacking saga. Readers interested in current affairs, including the recently explosive Leveson enquiry, will find this novel particularly interesting. This novel will also interest fans of thriller fiction with its dark narrative and disturbingly convincing characters. Set in the pre-smartphone era, Wacko Hacko also explores pressing issues in the tabloid world including the rise of celebrity, the treatment of women and the love-hate relationship with the police.
New York Times bestselling author James W. Huston returns with his most powerful thriller to date. Exploding with international intrigue, sizzling courtroom drama, and heart-stopping action, Falcon Seven delivers an all-too-realistic tale of America under fire.

A U.S. Navy F/A-18 flying over Afghanistan is suddenly diverted and ordered to bomb a building in Pakistan, where a meeting between al Qaeda and the Taliban is taking place. After destroying their target, the fighter jet is immediately hit by Stinger missiles and the pilots eject over Pakistan. They are captured, assaulted, and dragged through the streets of Peshawar. The world is on edge.

The fliers are quickly forced onto a secret Falcon jet headed for the Netherlands, where they'll stand trial for war crimes at the International Criminal Court. The building they hit was actually a medical post constructed by Europeans for Afghan refugees---and sixty-five innocent people were killed.



It's up to Washington criminal defense lawyer and former Navy SEAL Jack Caskey to defend the two navy officers and get to the bottom on what is beginning to seem like an orchestrated event. The National Security Council pushes President Obama to employ the act passed under George W. Bush that authorizes the use of force to extract Americans held by the International Criminal Court. While the president initially approves a special operations team to grab the Americans, he later withdraws to cooperate with the ICC. Already fighting a losing battle for his clients, an outraged Caskey works with his contacts in the shadowy world of special operations and CIA operatives to free his clients himself . . . or help them battle through an international show trial and face imprisonment---for life.
