The new Cold War is about to go hot.

#1 New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author Brad Thor is back with his most intense thriller yet.

Scot Harvath is having his best summer ever. With a cottage on the fjord, a boat, and his beautiful girlfriend Sølvi, he’s got everything he could possibly want. But out of vacation days and long overdue back home, America’s top spy has a decision to make—return, or submit his resignation.

When his deadly past comes calling, though, he’ll be left with no choice at all.

Leaving his favorite Oslo café, Harvath watches as a ghost climbs out of a taxi—a man he killed years ago, halfway around the world. 
How is he still alive? And what is he doing in Norway?

In a race against time that will take him high above the Arctic Circle, Harvath is tested in ways he has never imagined and pushed to a limit few human beings could ever endure.

If he succeeds, he’ll walk away with everything. If he fails, the United States and its allies will be at the mercy of one of the world’s most dangerous actors.

Hench: A Novel

by Natalie Zina Walschots


“This book is fast, furious, compelling, and angry as hell." -- Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author

The Boys meets My Year of Rest and Relaxation in this smart, imaginative, and evocative novel of love, betrayal, revenge, and redemption, told with razor-sharp wit and affection, in which a young woman discovers the greatest superpower—for good or ill—is a properly executed spreadsheet.

Anna does boring things for terrible people because even criminals need office help and she needs a job. Working for a monster lurking beneath the surface of the world isn’t glamorous. But is it really worse than working for an oil conglomerate or an insurance company? In this economy?

 As a temp, she’s just a cog in the machine. But when she finally gets a promising assignment, everything goes very wrong, and an encounter with the so-called “hero” leaves her badly injured.  And, to her horror, compared to the other bodies strewn about, she’s the lucky one.

So, of course, then she gets laid off.

With no money and no mobility, with only her anger and internet research acumen, she discovers her suffering at the hands of a hero is far from unique. When people start listening to the story that her data tells, she realizes she might not be as powerless as she thinks.

Because the key to everything is data: knowing how to collate it, how to manipulate it, and how to weaponize it. By tallying up the human cost these caped forces of nature wreak upon the world, she discovers that the line between good and evil is mostly marketing.  And with social media and viral videos, she can control that appearance.

It’s not too long before she’s employed once more, this time by one of the worst villains on earth. As she becomes an increasingly valuable lieutenant, she might just save the world.

A sharp, witty, modern debut, Hench explores the individual cost of justice through a fascinating mix of Millennial office politics, heroism measured through data science, body horror, and a profound misunderstanding of quantum mechanics.

The Wayward Mage: The Adventures of Jack Wartnose

by A.S. Norris


So, you think being a mage is an exciting job class to choose?
Oh sure, it’s fantastic being able to shoot fireballs or end an argument by making the other person float away. But some problems can’t be so easily dismissed.

With these powers comes a hard price: an extensive and often intense training; we cannot lie; we cannot break an oath; and infractions and misuse of magical powers are punishable up to death—though, only if you delve into the taboo—to name but a few of the restrictions the Mage’s Code puts on us. And all that comes before you’re either tucked away in a grinding research facility or sent out to join other adventurers on quests. You always feel like you’re racing against the clock to meet the expectations of your superiors. You’re never paid enough. You’re expected to be a servant and deny yourself certain societal comforts and customs.

Yet here, I find myself breaking that expectation.

When, by a chance encounter, my party happened into a tavern where I was reunited with my childhood sweetheart and lover after almost twenty years, and she reveals I have a son—what was I to do? Abandon them again in favor of continuing my quest? Or face my past and make it right? What would you have done in my place?

Join the adventures of Jack Wartnose while he navigates being a father and making things right with his childhood sweetheart, mutinous party members, shadows from his past, and quests—all while the chase continues for the invaluable Tome of Time. Will Wartnose ever catch a break?

Jo Rivers, safely back in Seattle, asks the same question daily—how does a math genius go from taking down international criminals and saving the world economy to living a normal teenage life? The only answer she can come up with is—she doesn’t.

With an overprotective father on her back and Kai on the other side of the world, Jo accepts an offer from Prodigy Stealth Solutions (PSS), who may have found a way to get her gift back. Using a newly developed technology, PSS tries a simulation process on Jo to restore her abilities, but during the attempt, PSS is hacked and a blacklist file containing some of PSS’s most sensitive secrets is stolen. Meanwhile, a mysterious caller who seems to know more than he should delivers a warning to Jo about Kai, who then goes missing.

Despite her father’s concerns, Jo sets off on a risky trip to Tunisia with a PSS team of teen prodigies to find an urgently needed solution for PSS and locate Kai. All the while, Jo has to trust the mysterious informant who, frighteningly, is like no one she has ever met before.

”Simulated has all the Mission Impossible action you could hope for, paired with a love triangle that rivals the intensity of Twilight’s. Be Prepared to choose sides and hold on tight. You’re in for one wild ride.—Chelsea Bobulski, author of The Wood and Remember Me

Yet as villagers dread news of more victims and the police come up empty-handed, it is Coleman, and he alone, who discovers the twisted path to the killer’s identity—and the door to a new life for himself.

When a stranger finds me in the desert night, will he be my savior, or my undoing?
