Bourne is back for revenge!

The killing of an art dealer dredges up snatches of Jason Bourne’s impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring. Now he’s determined to find its owner and purpose. The trail will lead him to a vicious Russian mercenary, Leonid Arkadin, also a graduate of the Central Intelligence training program Treadstone. The covert course was shuttered by Congress for corruption, but not before it produced Bourne and Arkadin, giving them equal skills, equal force, and equal cunning. As Bourne’s destiny circles closer to Arkadin’s, it becomes clear that someone else has been watching and manipulating them. Someone who wants to know Who is the more deadly agent?

Together with Tracy’s college-aged daughter and an attentive two-man crew, they sail into paradise. Then the smallest mistake triggers a series of devastating events.

Where is God when you need him most? Mackenzie Allen Philips’s youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?

Detective Bennett is back! The son of one of New York’s wealthiest families is snatched off the street and held hostage. But this kidnapper isn’t demanding money. Instead, he quizzes his prisoner on the price others pay for his life of luxury—and wrong answers are fatal. Detective Michael Bennett heads the investigation. With 10 kids of his own, he can’t understand what could lead someone to target anyone’s children. When another student from a powerful family disappears, the FBI sends in its top abduction specialist: Agent Emily Parker. Bennett’s job and love life suddenly get even more complicated. Then, out of nowhere, the killer changes his routine, and his new plan leads up to the most devastating demonstration yet—one that could bring cataclysmic ruin to every inch of New York City.
