About the author

Thomas Waite is the bestselling author of the celebrated Lana Elkins thriller series. Lethal Code was declared "Taut, tense, and provocative" by Hank Phillippi Ryan, the Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author, who quickly added ."..this frighteningly knowing cyberthriller will keep you turning pages-not only to devour the fast-paced fiction, but to worry about how much is terrifyingly true." Trident Code followed in form. "Scary good," according to King Features columnist Dale Dauten: "The science and technology are as convincing as they are chilling, with an original trifecta of cyber, nuclear, and environmental terrorism all worked into one wild ride of a plot." Unholy Code finds Elkins fighting enemies of all stripes in the heart of America, battles that rage on the ground, in the air, and in the ever-escalating violence of cyberspace. Waite's first novel, Terminal Value, reached #1 at Amazon. One reviewer wrote, "Terminal Value is to the corporate world what John Grisham's The Firm is to lawyering: a taut, fast, relentless thriller. A most impressive debut novel.

The deliciously informative story of Love & Quiches Gourmet—and the lessons one woman learned from her accidental business. 
When Susan Axelrod started selling quiches from her kitchen in 1973, she was armed with little but a lifelong passion for food. She had no inkling that the tiny, haphazard enterprise would, over four decades later, be competing with the giants of the industry. But as Susan got Love and Quiches off the ground, she discovered that her passion was propelling her ever forward—and into the role of full-fledged entrepreneur.

In With Love and Quiches, Susan brings her journey to life, imparting decades worth of life and business lessons to readers. She describes the hilarious chaos of the early days, rife with cluelessness and novice mistakes (giving readers a clear picture of what not to do). But she also explains the steady expansion of Love and Quiches—as it moved from selling a few quiches and desserts to New York–area restaurants to shipping its products around the world; as it went from a loose and wasteful operation to a lean, effective, multimillion-dollar powerhouse; and as her husband, son, and daughter joined her one by one as leaders in the company.
 
Brimming with colorful anecdotes, a deep love of good food, and the incisive wit and wisdom of its author, With Love and Quiches pulls back the curtain on a business success story—from baking sheets to balance sheets. It’s a story full of laughter, heartache, and hard-won knowledge that will inspire anyone with a good idea, a bit of ambition, at least a few resources and a healthy dose of passion.

WHEN VENGEANCE STRIKES, LOVE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME OF ALL

After a Massachusetts court frees accused murderer Rob Townsend, the victim’s closest friend seeks bitter revenge. But Dylan Johnson may be no match for Townsend, a killer with a powerful reason of his own to double-down on homicide—his ex-girlfriend Heather Carter is now involved with Dylan.

As brutal jealousy and violent revenge rage, a mysterious corporate recruiter from Tanzania contacts Dylan and Heather with an offer to leave behind the murder and mayhem for lucrative positions in Africa. Coffie Kuma tells them they’ll be working on “technology with a humanitarian heartbeat.” Kuma’s pitch is persuasive, his stately manner impressive. And since both Dylan and Heather are out of work, it’s an offer they can’t refuse.

Dylan’s attempt to leave, though, could be cut short when detectives unearth incriminating evidence that ties him not only to the targeting of Townsend, but to the shooting and paralyzing of a beloved Boston policeman. Then, Townsend tries to thwart Heather’s escape by blackmailing her with humiliating evidence of her own bad behavior.

Deeply troubling questions haunt both Dylan and Heather: Can they find real freedom under the African sun? Or will it be feeding time on the savannah?

With Shadowed, Thomas Waite, the author of widely published and critically acclaimed thrillers, sweeps readers from Boston’s luxurious condos to the wildest, most remote reaches of Africa. That’s where his sharply-drawn characters discover that nature, “red in tooth and claw,” can scarcely compete with the violence of humans. And, in a unique twist, Waite offers a vivid and ingenious reinvention of Richard Cornell’s classic short story, The Most Dangerous Game.
