“Please find me, Thomas! Please!”
Two years ago, Dr. Gina Brady broke Thomas Prescott’s heart, but now her panic-stricken satellite phone call starts it beating again with a fury. Thugs kidnapped the good doctor from the remote jungle village where she was working, and now the retired homicide detective’s expert skills are desperately needed to save her.
Led by a colorful, but perhaps untrustworthy local guide, Prescott journeys deep into the Bolivian Amazon, plunging into a world where the only thing more dangerous than the gun-toting drug traffickers and the ruthless tribesmen, is the jungle itself.
When Gina’s trail leads to a chance encounter with an archaeological expedition, the search for the missing doctor takes on even deadlier consequences. But Prescott will not relent in this punishing quest until, once again, he holds Gina in his arms.

In the electrifying fourth book in the bestselling Thomas Prescott series, Prescott must prove a horrific crime in a small town is tied to Big Biotech.
When retired homicide detective Thomas Prescott learns he's inherited a 250-acre farm in Tarrin, Missouri (pop. 2,100), he can't get there fast enough. As he slowly acclimates to small town living, he hears rumblings about a horrific crime in the town's past. Four years earlier, a recently fired employee of the local grocery store enacted his revenge, shooting and killing the owner of the store, plus four customers, then turning the gun on himself. The crime appears to have been solved, but Prescott has his doubts.
Balancing farm life and a budding romance with the town veterinarian, Prescott begins reinvestigating the crime. On the surface, the case is cut and dry—a revenge killing gone bad. But what if revenge wasn't the motive? What if the store owner wasn't the target?
One by one, Prescott delves into the victims' pasts. As Prescott digs deeper, he discovers the murders were twenty years in the making and soon finds himself in the unfamiliar waters of Big Biotech, GMOs, political payoffs, hired mercenaries, and the shadowy past of one of the most hated companies in the world.

The gripping third book in the internationally bestselling Thomas Prescott series.
Intimate in scale, but grandly outfitted, the luxury cruise liner The Afrikaans hosts no more than 208 pampered guests, among them; former FBI contract agent Thomas Prescott. When the ship is overtaken by African pirates who are demanding the U.S. send medical relief to a small Zulu village in South Africa, it's up to Prescott to keep the hostages alive.
As the U.S. tries to figure out how to combat the terrorists' plot from the outside, World Health Organization doctor, Gina Brady, undertakes the impossible task of rescuing three children from the secluded Zulu village. With the deadline drawing near, Prescott and Brady must race against the clock to discover the truth; is it medical relief the pirates seek or a two billion dollar ransom from one of the richest men in the world? Or could the implications be so profound, and the stakes so high, a war hangs in the balance...

After getting canned from the Seattle PD, brilliant, wisecracking Thomas Prescott follows his sister Lacy to Philadelphia, where she swims on the Drexel University team. While Thomas’s slapstick antics mask a keen analytic mind, it’s his nose for trouble that leads him again and again into dicey situations. The ex–homicide detective is not long in Philly before getting caught up in two high-powered criminal cases.
Thomas stumbles into a crime scene amid the Occupy Philadelphia protests. Activist Brooke Wexley has been strangled within sight of city hall. While demonstrating against economic inequality, the college student hid her own family’s wealthy background. The über-rich Wexleys have many dark secrets—one of which may have led to Brooke’s violent death.
Thomas is also called to join an emergency multiagency task force on the trail of a prolific serial killer who leaves gruesome calling cards: a three-digit number carved on each of his many victims. It’s when Thomas realizes the murders are linked to the Numbers—the old illegal street lottery—that his investigation shifts into high gear. The trail jumps back to the past before rushing back to the present like a tsunami of fire, bent on revenge.
Amid all this, Lacy has a health scare, and Thomas’s priorities shift. Encountering gambling church ladies, felonious businessmen, and murderous mobsters—with an investigation hampered by a competitive colleague and Lacy’s narcoleptic pug—Thomas must summon all his considerable powers to root out the guilty and dangerous while caring for his adored sister.
Reader’s Note: This book takes place when Thomas Prescott is thirty years old (two years before the events of Unforeseen). If you are new to the Thomas Prescott series, this is the perfect place to start!

Thomas Prescott returns in a smoldering thriller of murder, treachery, and revenge.
His love life in shambles, retired homicide detective Thomas Prescott returns to Seattle, the very place he fled from after his parents' deaths nearly a decade earlier. Just as Prescott is getting settled in, he sees a body floating in the private cove behind his boyhood home. It’s a woman. But not just any woman. It’s Ellen Gray—the governor of Washington—who has been missing for the past six weeks.
The lead suspect in the governor’s murder is her husband, famed defense attorney, Adam Gray. But unlike the Seattle Police Department—where Thomas was fired from several years earlier—Prescott has his doubts about Adam’s guilt. Ignoring direct orders to stay away from the case, Prescott soon finds himself drawn into the heart of the investigation.
Working side-by-side with SPD detective, Erica Frost, Prescott uncovers a sophisticated conspiracy linked to a new breed of killer. In his pursuit to catch a madman, Prescott’s investigation will take him from the state capital to the snow-covered peaks of the North Cascades and for the first time in his career, Thomas finds himself both the hunter...and the hunted.

Henry Bins is only awake one hour a day.
Can you imagine only being awake for one hour each day? Can you imagine having to cram your entire existence into 60 measly minutes? (Two minutes to shower. Three minutes to eat. Five minutes to watch TV.) And in that 3600 seconds you have awake, imagine that you have to figure out:
- Who murdered the woman across the street? (You suspect it was the President of the United States, but can you prove it?)
- Why your mom abandoned you when you were six years old? (Was it because she worked for the CIA? Or was it because of your condition?)
- What caused your strange condition where you wake up at exactly 3:00 a.m. then fall asleep exactly an hour later, then sleep for twenty-three hours? (Were you experimented on? If so, by who?)
- And most importantly, what is Project Sandman?
Welcome to Henry Bins's life.
The 3:00 a.m. series is so fast, so fun, and so unlike anything you've ever read, you won't know what hit you.

HENRY BINS IS ONLY AWAKE ONE HOUR A DAY.
Saturday, February 27th.
3:00 a.m. - 4:00 a.m.
It's the wedding that everyone has been waiting for...
What could possibly go wrong?
The only thing Maddy knows for certain...is that he died.
I died. And I came here. To a place they call Two. They say one out of three people who die come here. Berlin is here. She's seven. She forgot to take her insulin. Darrel is here. He drowned. Dr. Raleigh is here. He's the head counselor at the TAF (Two Adjustment Facility) I'm at. He died in an avalanche. Perry Whitcomb is here. I connected with him on Deadbook (Two's version of Facebook). He was on my soccer team in middle school. He collapsed during one of our games. And get this, Heath Ledger is here. (Yeah, the Joker, himself.) He just had a new movie come out.
Anyhow, it's been a lot to handle, this new world, this second life, but I think I'm starting to come around. I was about to take the bar exam (for the third time) the day after I died. They say I can take it here. They say I can become a public defender just like I'd planned on. We'll see. Sure, I'm starting to adjust, but I still have lots of questions: Why can't women get pregnant here? Who are this group called "Borns" that no one will talk about? Why do They always seem to know exactly where you are every second of every day. I'm not certain of a lot these days, but I do know one thing for sure: there is a lot more to Two than people are telling...
Selected Praise for Arrival:
I've already enjoyed the Henry Bins series and the Thomas Prescott series. Maddy Young is another great character. I can't wait to see what happens in the series. -diane_coe
It is Pirog's best work yet. -railroader
This book was awesome. It kept my attention from the get go, it was very well written, and the characters were strong. It begins with "dead" Maddy, a law student who just flunked the bar and wakes up in a world where everyone has "died". Through several odd events he finds that everything is not as it seems and begins to question the world he lives in. I don't want to spoil the book, so I will just say that the stuff he discovers, and learns, are life shaking for him. -prea66
Four ridiculously silly stories with Henry, Lassie, Murdock, and some surprise guests!
FUN AT THE VET
For his dad's 65th birthday, Henry sent his dad to Las Vegas, leaving Henry to take care of his one-hundred and sixty pound dog, Murdock. When Lassie and Murdock's game of "What Won't Murdock eat?" goes horribly wrong, a trip to the emergency vet is in order. And when a crazed snake owner takes the vet hostage, it's up to Henry, Lassie, and Murdock to save the day. But they only have one hour. And the clock is ticking...
One of the gangs' new friends has gone missing and it's up to Henry, Lassie, Murdock, and Henry's father to rescue him. Before it's too late...
A VERY LASSIE CHRISTMAS
After pulling some strings, Henry's fiancée is able to surprise him with an early Christmas present: a 3:00 a.m. trip to the Smithsonian's National Zoo. But when Lassie and Murdock tag along, everything goes haywire....
THE BACHELOR PARTY
Just a few weeks before his wedding, Henry is shocked when he wakes up at the MGM National Harbor for a surprise bachelor party. And if Henry's father, Lassie, and Murdock have anything to say about it, it will be an "hour" that Henry will never forget...even if he wants to...
The Speed of Souls is the heart-warming, often hilarious, often outrageous, journey of Hugo (a dog who dies and comes back as a cat), Cassie (an aging rescue dog coming to terms with her own mortality), and Jerry (a once popular sci-fi writer in the midst of a cataclysmic mid-life crisis).
Hugo was a dog. He died. Now he's a kitten. As Hugo adjusts to his new body (not just a cat—a baby cat!), his new home (San Francisco), his new outside (Where are the mountains? Where is the lake?), and his sudden urge to sit in every box he sees, he wonders if he'll ever see Cassie or Jerry again.
Back in Lake Tahoe, Cassie and Jerry attempt to come to grips with life without Hugo. Cassie fills the void with "Tadpole Guard", "Worm Patrol", and ups her protection of Jerry (her human), who is in the midst of a cataclysmic midlife crisis. In addition to his dog dying, Jerry's last two books have been monumental flops and he's still reeling from his fiancée leaving him for another man. As if these problems aren't enough, his parents (who have become late-stage hippies) are coming to live with him for the entire summer.
And so begins the journey of three souls, intertwined by love, loss, and perhaps something even greater. Told with Nick Pirog's charm and razor sharp wit, The Speed of Souls is at once a hilarious, moving, and transcendent work of storytelling.

HENRY BINS IS ONLY AWAKE ONE HOUR A DAY.
Two weeks after Henry's abduction and he is still burning with questions: had his mother really tortured him with a synthetic nightmare? Was he really one of the CIA Sleep Control Program's first experiments? What was on the flash drive that the President had supposedly given him? But most importantly, if his mother had caused his condition, could she reverse it?
Henry soon begins the hunt for his mother, but to find her, he'll need to delve into his mother's past; a world where nothing is as it seems, where the Cold War still exists, where secrets are the only currency, and where torture is an art form. In his search for answers, Henry learns that everything -- his condition, his mother, his father, even the President -- are linked by one thing: PROJECT SANDMAN.
And that it might, just might, be his salvation.
