<b>A criminal behavior expert teams up with an NYPD detective to track down a criminal in the novel that inspired the hit CBS TV series starring Alan Cumming.</b><b><br /></b>Dr. Dylan Reinhart wrote the book on criminal behavior. Literally: he's a renowned, bestselling Ivy League expert on the subject. When a copy of his book turns up at a gruesome murder scene-along with a threatening message from the killer-it looks like someone has been taking notes.<br />Elizabeth Needham is the headstrong and brilliant NYPD Detective in charge of the case who recruits Dylan to help investigate another souvenir left at the scene: a playing card. Another murder, another card. . . and now Dylan suspects that the cards aren't a signature; they're a deadly hint pointing directly toward the next victim. <br />As tabloid headlines about the killer known as "The Dealer" scream from newsstands, New York City descends into panic. With the cops at a loss, it's up to Dylan to hunt down a serial killer unlike any the city has ever seen. Only someone with Dylan's expertise can hope to go inside the mind of a criminal and convince The Dealer to lay down his cards. But after thinking like a criminal, could Dylan become one?<br />A heart-pounding novel of suspense more shocking than any tabloid true crime story, <i>Instinct</i> introduces the next unforgettable character from the imagination of James Patterson, the world's #1 bestselling author.

<b>Ground zero, noun: the center or origin of rapid, intense, or violent activity or change.</b><br /><br />Heat, humidity, and homicide are things veteran detective Sawyer Key expects to encounter on his first day with the Savannah Police Department, but the hostile reception from his new partner catches him by surprise. Sawyer isn鈥檛 a stranger to heartache and recognizes that Royce Locke is a wounded man who鈥檚 reeling from a devastating loss. Relentless and patient in all things, Sawyer is determined to make the new partnership work. <br /><br />Savannah, Georgia is known for her quirky people, oak trees draped in Spanish moss, and antebellum architecture. Beneath the Southern charm and hospitality, festering hatred and violence is soaring with the summer temperatures. Locke and Key find themselves at the epicenter when their first case involves the death of a former shock jock who appears to be the victim of vigilante justice. <br /><br />Opposites in nearly every way, the two detectives set aside their differences to take back their city and restore law and order. From this reluctant truce, an intense attraction grows that will either tighten or shatter their tenuous bond. Falling for his partner spells inevitable disaster, but Sawyer鈥檚 always been a sucker for wounded things. Sawyer could be the key to the life Royce has always wanted, if he鈥檚 brave enough to trust him. The fuse is lit, the clock is running, and the zero hour is upon them. Tick tock. <br /><br />Ground Zero is the first book in the Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key鈥檚 investigations and evolving relationship. Ground Zero has a happy-for-now ending with no cliffhanger. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older. <br />

<b>From the author of the #1 best seller <i>The Girl in the Spider鈥檚 Web</i>鈥攁n electrifying thriller that begins with Alan Turing鈥檚 suicide and plunges into a post-war Britain of immeasurable repression, conformity and fear</b><br /> <b>聽</b><br /> June 8, 1954. Several English nationals have defected to the USSR, while a witch hunt for homosexuals rages across Britain. In these circumstances, no one is surprised when a mathematician by the name of Alan Turing is found dead in his home in the sleepy suburb of Wilmslow. It is widely assumed that he has committed suicide, unable to cope with the humiliation of a criminal conviction for gross indecency. But a young detective constable, Leonard Corell, who once dreamed of a career in higher mathematics, suspects greater forces are involved. <br /><br />In the face of opposition from his superiors, he begins to assemble the pieces of a puzzle that lead him to one of the most closely guarded secrets of the war: the Bletchley Park operation to crack the Nazis鈥?Enigma encryption code. Stumbling across evidence of Turing鈥檚 genius, and sensing an escape from a narrow life, Corell begins to dig deeper. But in the paranoid, febrile atmosphere of the Cold War, loose cannons cannot be tolerated and Corell soon realizes he has much to learn about the dangers of forbidden knowledge.<br /><br />He is also about to be rocked by two startling developments in his own life, one of which will find him targeted as a threat to national security.
