From Max Allan Collins, 2017 Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Honoree for a Lifetime of Excellence in Mystery Writing comes the brilliant sequel to "Road to Perdition," his masterpiece of crime fiction that became both a literary and cinematic classic.

Twenty-two year-old Michael O’Sullivan returns from the second World War with a medal of honor, a glass eye, and the violent skills necessary to avenge his family, who were gunned down by the Chicago mob when he was a child. O’Sullivan becomes mobster Frank Nitti’s trusted chauffer…and an undercover operative for federal agent Eliot Ness…but even as he seeks revenge, he finds himself being seduced by the criminal underworld that he loathes.

Praise for ROAD TO PURGATORY

“An explosive, action-packed blockbuster, destined to rank right up there with THE GODFATHER series when all is said and done.” Detroit Free Press

“A cordite-drenched Shakespearean tragedy.” Kirkus Reviews

Lars Emmerich
You've done nothing wrong. So why have they thrown you in prison? No phone call. No lawyer. Just these words: "National Security."

Is it a massive mistake?

Or is it something much, much worse?

FALLOUT is the latest #1 bestseller in the runaway international hit Sam Jameson series from conspiracy master Lars Emmerich. It is Book Three in the Incident trilogy.

Sam finds herself at the mercy of a ruthless and relentless conspiracy that strikes at the heart of the American way of life. They have every advantage: Surveillance everywhere. The world's most powerful police force. International reinforcements. Limitless resources.

Can she beat the odds, save herself, and dismantle an existential threat to liberty and freedom?

Lars Emmerich’s writing is sharp, edgy, a little dystopian, and exquisitely researched. FALLOUT’s gripping, twisting plot is terrifying — precisely because it is so very real.

Is our way of life at risk? How safe are we, really?

Readers say:

"This is the best writing in decades."

"Lars Emmerich is right up there with Patterson, Baldacci, Forsyth, and DeMille."

"Some of the best thriller fiction you will ever read."

Interview with #1 Bestselling Author Lars Emmerich

Q: Who are your influences?
A: Too many to list! I started out years ago as a Tom Clancy addict, and I thoroughly enjoy many of Nelson DeMille’s novels. I regularly read David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Barry Eisler, Michael Connelly, and John Grisham. James Patterson has redefined what it means to be a working author, and I read his stuff as well. My top picks are usually espionage and private detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and, of course, books featuring classic pulp heroes. And I’m greatly influenced by all sorts of nonfiction, as well. I read all the time, and I’m a bit of a magpie about the topics — science, economics, finance, politics, history, mathematics, engineering, biomechanics, medicine… It’s a big world out there, and I love learning more about it. Many of those topics find their way into my fiction, so I can justify it all as “research.”

Q: The Sam Jameson series has become quite a phenomenon. What do you think has been the driving force behind the books’ success?
A: I think Sam has something of a unique voice. She says the things we all wish we could say, and she gets away with it about half of the time. The other half of the time, not so much. I think she’s also a very human heroine. She has plenty of flaws and weaknesses, yet she accomplishes some amazing things. She’s kind of like every one of us in that regard, which resonates.

Q: You have developed personal relationships with your readers over the years, which is unusual in the publishing business. Was that a conscious choice?
A: Absolutely. Books are intimate things. They occupy a person’s mind and thoughts for hours at a time. Good books leave a lasting impression, and great books might even change the way we think about things, but all books are a relationship. I felt that Big Publishing did a great job of distributing novels, but at a very high cost — there was almost no way for a personal connection to form between writers and readers. But I always wanted a conversation. I wanted to learn from my readers, to hear what was on their minds, to listen to their criticism and hopefully improve the books I write. It’s been extremely rewarding, and I’m hopeful it can continue for years to come.

Get Back Jack - When Jack Reacher Makes Mistakes, Who Handles The Fall-Out?

FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar’s off-the-books assignment leads them to the surviving members of Jack Reacher’s elite military unit. Five years ago, Reacher sorted and destroyed a team of arms dealers in Lee Child’s Bad Luck & Trouble before he moved on. But he made mistakes. Now, his bad luck and trouble legacy plunges Otto and Gaspar into the minefield of a grudge war between Reacher’s fearless old friends and chilling new enemies.

When his enemies take women and children hostage for ransom, Kim’s relentless pursuit leads her deeper into the deadly war Reacher failed to finish. Mercenaries and Kim’s unwavering heart push her through — until she meets the wrong woman with nothing to lose.

When Retired Army Colonel Thomas Weston returns to MacDill Air Force Base for a public event after sixteen years, he's an easy target for his enemies, including Jack Reacher. The Hunt for Justice and the Hunt for Jack Reacher collide in this long-awaited follow up to Get Back Jack.

Jack and Joe - FBI Agents Otto and Gaspar pick up where Lee Child’s “The Enemy” leaves off in the Hunt for Jack Reacher. When FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar are sent to Fort Bird, North Carolina to find Jack Reacher, powerful enemies with their backs against the wall will stop at nothing to keep the secrets Reacher left behind.

Readers Love the Hunt for Jack Reacher Series and Diane Capri:

"I 'stumbled' on this title and was attracted to it as I am a Jack Reacher fan. Loved the story and the author's writing style. Couldn't wait for more so I purchased [Raw Justice] and want more Jennifer Lane - please?! Fatal Distraction is also on my Kindle to read list!"

"I have been a Reacher fan for years and was excited when I heard of Diane Capri's take on 'Finding Reacher'. 'Don't Know Jack' is a good companion to Child's Reacher books and recaptures the flavor of the Reacher mystique. I am waiting anxiously for the next book in the series and the next and the next, and so on."

"All Child fans should give it a try!"

Lee Child gives this series and Diane Capri two thumbs up!

“Full of thrills and tension, but smart and human, too. Kim Otto is a great, great character. I love her.” Lee Child, #1 Worldwide Bestselling author of Jack Reacher novels.
