Lucy’s back! In a story ripped from the headlines, the violence is the worst she’s ever seen, the stakes are higher than ever, and then…things get personal.
It’s a vicious, horrific crime: the brutal killing of a teenaged girl. When Pittsburgh detectives call FBI Supervisory Special Agent Lucy Guardino to the scene, their focus is on who and why?
Was it the girl’s Afghan father striving to regain his honor after she became too Westernized? Her Jewish boyfriend? Someone from Afghanistan settling an old grudge? Or one of the many drug cartels the father helped the DEA bring down seeking revenge?
The answers seem clear when Pittsburgh becomes engulfed in flames as a violent narcoterrorist turns the city into a kill zone…But in the dark of night, surrounded by men intent on destroying the truth, Lucy learns that secrets hide in shadows.
KILL ZONE is the third novel in the Lucy Guardino FBI Thrillers series. If you enjoy captivating suspense, intelligent storytelling, strong and vulnerable characters, and a freight-train pace, then you'll love this adrenaline rush of a heart-pounding thriller.
“CJ Lyons scores a major triumph with FAREWELL TO DREAMS. Totally absorbing and impossible to put down.” ~Douglas Preston, #1 NYT bestselling author
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author CJ Lyons, the second in her Fatal Insomnia Medical Thriller series.
I may be dying, but I’ve finally found someone to live for…
It’s been a sleepless month since Dr. Angela Rossi was diagnosed with Fatal Insomnia after a not-quite-dead nun reached out directly to Angela’s mind and set her on the path to hunt down a serial killer.
After learning she only has a few months left to live, Angela has left the ER and has one final case to testify at for the Advocacy Center. As soon as she brings justice to her last victim, a woman who was raped and brutalized seven months ago, Angela plans to take control of what little time she has left by escaping the sullen Pennsylvania December to a remote tropical island and ending it all on her terms. Her one regret is leaving Detective Matthew Ryder—he’s been her solace in the midst of the chaos her life has deteriorated into.
When the rape victim is murdered on the day she’s scheduled to testify and the rapist goes free without naming his accomplices, Angela makes it her mission to bring him to justice…one way or the other.
She’s helped by streetwise Devon Price, who doesn’t care about the law but does care about justice. He argues that Angela could be the perfect vigilante if she wanted, given that she no longer has anything to lose or to fear.
When a loved one is targeted, Angela is forced to betray everything she holds dear in an effort to stop the killers. Unfortunately, there’s a thin line between justice and vengeance.
When you have no time left, you realize what you’re really living for…
For Dr. Angela Rossi the past holds only pain and the future promises only an early death as Fatal Insomnia consumes her.
But Angie will never stop fighting. Especially now that she’s learned that her disease—and the disease she’s discovered in dozens of young children—isn’t a quirk of heredity but rather the creation of an unknown cabal.
While Angie explores the betrayals and lies that led to the Fatal Insomnia epidemic, Devon Price, whose daughter is also infected, uses his street skills to hunt those responsible. He’ll do anything to save his daughter. Lie, cheat, steal, kill…it doesn’t matter. Not as long as Esme is saved.
In the end, their only hope might be a desperate deal with the devil: the cabal behind the man-made Fatal Insomnia epidemic. A deal paid with blood. A deal not everyone will survive.
THE SLEEPLESS STARS is the finale of the Fatal Insomnia trilogy. The books are meant to be read in order beginning with FAREWELL TO DREAMS and A RAGING DAWN.
New York Times bestselling author CJ Lyons makes her YA debut with a taut, riveting thriller hailed as "an intense page-turner" by April Henry, bestselling author of The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die.

It’s also the first day for L.A. transplant Dr. Lydia Fiore, the new ER attending physician. Not a good day to lose a patient—especially not the Chief of Surgery’s son. Now, to save her career, Lydia must discover the truth behind her patient's death, even as it leads her into unfamiliar—and risky—territory.
At least she’s not alone. There’s med student Amanda, a sweet Southern belle with problems of her own; Gina, a resident with a chip on her shoulder; and Nora, the take-charge charge nurse with a cool head but a fiery temper.

No motives. Just one possible lead—reports of a stranger who may have lured the young archeology major off the ship and into the jungles of Guatemala. When Caitlyn follows her hunch into the jungle—with the FBI's Jake Carver by her side—the trail takes a surprising turn into the very heart of darkness.
