When an old colleague suggests he consult on a BITERs case, Took has little to lose. The case is open and shut… but nothing is ever that easy.

Benvenuti al Dim Sum Asylum, il Manicomio dei Dim Sum, in una San Francisco dove un caso è noioso e banale quando la polizia deve inseguire una statuetta alta mezzo metro con degli impressionanti baffi alla Fu Manchu, che è scomparsa da un santuario e se ne corre in giro per Chinatown lasciandosi dietro una scia di magia sessuale e caos.

Roku MacCormick, ispettore della divisione Crimini Arcani di Chinatown, deve affrontare una quantità di sfide che vanno ben al di là del suo retaggio umano-faerie, dei draghi ringhianti che stanno a guardia dei portali di C-Town e dell’esplosione di una fabbrica di noodle. Infatti, oltre alle interferenze di una famiglia mafiosa che vuole tenere a distanza e a un serial killer esperto di incantesimi che deve assolutamente trovare, dopo un caso andato a rotoli, a Roku tocca accollarsi Trent Leonard, un nuovo partner di cui non si può ancora fidare.

Anche se preferirebbe restarsene a casa con Bob the Cat a riempirsi di whiskey fino ad addormentarsi, ogni giorno Roku indossa distintivo e pistola, deciso a servire e proteggere la città che ama. Quando l’oscuro e sotterraneo mondo magico di Chinatown rende la sua vita un inferno e il caso su cui lavora si rivela letale, è Trent che bada a coprirgli le spalle e, a detta del suo nuovo partner, anche a guarire il suo cuore. Per Roku, però, Trent è pericoloso quanto i mostri e i criminali che hanno giurato di abbattere.

Popular athlete Brian had everything until a school shooter nearly killed him. He survived the massacre with the help of a hero—his classmate Landon, who faced death to help others… and who is openly gay. Brian might be alive, but he can’t face his fears or move on, especially since the shooters were never caught. He’s falling apart, and he can only reach for Landon and hope Landon will take his hand a second time.

Landon did what anyone would do when he found Brian dying on the cafeteria floor. He doesn’t think of himself as a hero, but he’s ready to take a stand against the gun violence tearing apart the lives of young people—people like Brian, who returned to school a shadow of the happy, outgoing quarterback Landon used to admire. Brian still needs him, and as their friendship grows and deepens, wounds might begin to heal. The bond they share could lead a new start for them both.

Only the terror that visited Jefferson Waller High School isn’t over yet.

Fische auf dem Trockenen: Buch Eins

Privatdetektiv Jackson Rivers wuchs auf den rauen Straßen von Del Paso Heights auf und traut Polizisten nicht – obwohl er einer war. Als der Mann, den er als seinen Bruder betrachtet, des Mordes an einem Polizisten beschuldigt wird, bei dem es eindeutig nicht mit rechten Dingen zuging, setzt er Himmel und Hölle in Bewegung, um Kaden und seiner Familie zu helfen.

Strafverteidiger Ellery Cramer stammt aus einer reichen Familie, was ihn nicht daran hindert, sich bereits seit sechs Jahren zum straßenerfahrenen, selbstbewussten Detektiv Jackson Rivers hingezogen zu fühlen. Doch als Jackson ihn um Hilfe bei der Verteidigung von Kaden Cameron bittet, ist er bald überfordert – und das nicht nur in Bezug auf den verschlossenen, unwirschen Detektiv. Kaden wurde nicht nur ein Mord angehängt, sondern er wurde ihm von korrupten Polizisten angehängt, wobei die Verschwörung weiter reicht, als Ellery sich vorwagt – und bis in Jacksons unschöne Vergangenheit.

Bald sind beide Männer tief in das Rätsel um den in der Tankstelle ermordeten Polizisten verstrickt und befinden sich in einem Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, um Kadens Unschuld zu beweisen. Doch abseits der Ermittlungen und der fliegenden Kugeln müssen sie mit persönlichen Komplikationen umgehen … und einer gegenseitigen Anziehungskraft, die außer Kontrolle geraten ist.

L’avvocato divorzista Clayton Reynolds è un cinico felice che crede nel duro lavoro e nelle avventure di una notte. Crede anche che essere un ottimo avvocato significhi non dover mai più tornare al miserabile parcheggio per roulotte in cui è cresciuto e che fare volontariato in un rifugio per donne maltrattate serva a placare la sua coscienza che, di tanto in tanto, viene a tormentarlo. Così, quando Nadine Graham arriva con un braccio rotto e un figlio che desidera disperatamente proteggere, Clayton non può rifiutare la sua richiesta di aiuto.

Accettare il caso significa rivolgersi all’investigatore Chiamami-Kelly-e-basta. Il che non sarebbe tanto male, se Kelly non fosse un inguaribile romantico… nonché l’uomo più sexy che lui abbia mai incontrato.

Kelly ha sempre avuto una cotta per l’inarrivabile Clayton Reynolds e acconsente ad aiutarlo, anche se è già parecchio impegnato ad accudire il figlio del fratello rimasto vedovo.

Quando il caso di Nadine si fa pericoloso, i due uomini, all’apparenza agli antipodi, sono costretti a collaborare, scoprendo così di avere moltissime cose in comune… ma risolvere il caso e salvare la vita di Nadine potrebbe costare caro a Kelly.

Der Scheidungsanwalt Clayton Reynolds ist ein überzeugter Zyniker, der an harte Arbeit und One-Night-Stands glaubt. Außerdem ist er der Meinung, dass er als exzellenter Anwalt nie mehr nach Hause – in die elende Wohnwagensiedlung, in der er aufgewachsen ist – zurückkehren muss. Mit ehrenamtlicher Arbeit für ein Frauenhaus versucht er das schlechte Gewissen zu beruhigen, das ihn gelegentlich plagt. Als Nadine Graham mit einem gebrochenen Arm und einem Sohn erscheint, den sie verzweifelt beschützen will, kann Clayton ihre Bitte um Hilfe daher nicht abschlagen.

Die Annahme des Falls bedeutet jedoch auch, den Ermittlungsbeamten „nennt mich einfach nur Kelly“ um Unterstützung bitten zu müssen. Das wäre gar nicht so schlimm, wenn Kelly nicht ein hoffnungsloser Romantiker wäre und außerdem der heißeste Mann, dem Clayton je begegnet ist.

Kelly hat immer schon für den unerreichbaren Clayton Reynolds geschwärmt. Er willigt ein, zu helfen, obwohl er mit dem mutterlosen Baby, das sein verwitweter Bruder bei ihm gelassen hat, eigentlich schon genug um die Ohren hat.

Als Nadines Fall eine gefährliche Wendung nimmt und die zwei scheinbar gegensätzlichen Männer zur Zusammenarbeit gezwungen werden, entdecken sie, dass sie sehr viel gemeinsam haben. Die Lösung des Falls und die Rettung von Nadines Leben könnten Kelly jedoch alles kosten.

Ramen Assassin: Book One

When life gives Kuro Jenkins lemons, he wants to make ponzu to serve at his Los Angeles ramen shop.

Instead he’s dodging bullets and wondering how the hell he ended up back in the Black Ops lifestyle he left behind him. After rescuing former child star Trey Bishop from a pair of thugs in the middle of the night, he knows it’s time to pick up his gun again. But it seems trouble isn’t done with Trey, and Kuro can’t quite let go… of either the gun or Trey Bishop.

Trey Bishop never denied his life’s downward spiral was his own fault. After a few stints in rehab, he’s finally shaken off his Hollywood bad-boy lifestyle but not his reputation. The destruction of his acting career and his relationships goes deep, and no one trusts anything he says, including the LAPD. When two men dragging a dead body spot him on a late-night run and try to murder him, Trey is grateful for the tall, dark, and deadly ramen shop owner he lusts over—not just for rescuing him, but also for believing him.

Now caught in a web of murders and lies, Trey knows someone wants him dead, and the only one on his side is a man with deep, dark secrets. Trey hopes Kuro Jenkins will stick around to see what the future holds for them once the dust settles, but from the looks of things, neither of them may survive to find out.

Serie I misteri di Middlemark

Il dottor Llewellyn Lewis ha una doppia vita: è allo stesso tempo un impacciato ma stimato professore di storia e l’appariscente Ramon Rondell, famigerato autore di sensazionalistiche teorie storiche. Ramon è il primo a mettere gli occhi su un irresistibile ballerino in un club, ma tocca a Llewellyn incontrare l’assistente universitario Blaise Arthur in un’occasione formale: la cena in onore di Anne de Vere, una discendente di Edward de Vere, diciassettesimo Conte di Oxford, sospettato da alcuni di essere il vero Shakespeare. Anne vuole che Llewellyn dimostri questa teoria, sebbene molti abbiano già tentato di farlo senza risultato, ed è pronta a fare una generosa donazione alla Middlemark University in caso di successo.

Per Llewellyn questa potrebbe anche essere l’occasione giusta per conoscere meglio Blaise.

Non tutti pensano che Llewellyn debba accettare l’incarico o il denaro. Tra fratelli in lite, mecenati rivali, colleghi gelosi e avidi amministratori, chiunque potrebbe tentare di sabotare la sua ricerca… e qualcuno è anche disposto a uccidere per riuscirci.

Quando Anne de Vere viene trovata morta, la polizia sospetta che sia Blaise l’assassino, e soltanto il timido, balbuziente professore che ha conquistato il suo cuore potrà provare il contrario…
