“THE AMBASSADOR’S WIFE is another terrific book from a terrific writer. In the genre of crime fiction set in Asia, Jake Needham is in a class of his own.” —The Bangkok Post

The first body is in Singapore, on a bed in an empty suite in the Marriott Hotel. The second is in Bangkok, in a seedy apartment close to the American embassy. Both women. Both Americans. Both beaten viciously, shot in the head, stripped naked, and lewdly displayed.

The FBI says it’s terrorism, but the whispers on the street tell a different story. They say a serial killer is stalking American women across Asia.

Inspector Samuel Tay of Singapore CID is something of a reluctant policeman. He’s a little overweight, a little lonely, a little cranky, and he smokes way too much. Thinking back, he can’t even remember why he became a detective in the first place. He thinks a lot about quitting, but he hasn’t. Because the thing is, he’s very, very good at what he does.

When the bodies of American women start turning up, CID gives the case to Tay. It’s high profile, and he’s the best they have. Then why is it, Tay soon begins to wonder, that nobody seems to want him to find the women’s killer? Not the American ambassador, not the FBI, not even his bosses at CID.

When international politics takes over a murder case, the truth is always the next victim.

Don’t Remember

by Rich Silvers

The-Naphils-Kiss

As he approaches the corner of Wendt and Brewster, Julian Barnes makes a bet with fate: if he can drive through the intersection without stopping, it will be a sign that he won’t lose Julia, the woman he loves.

But instead Julian wakes up in a hospital, his body shattered from a car accident he can’t remember. The prominent neurosurgeon who broadsided him swears his light was green. An eyewitness disagrees. A woman is dead, and the surgeon is accused of manslaughter.

A stranger warns Julian that if his memory returns and he tells anyone what really happened, Julia will die, too.

What don’t they want him to remember? Julian knows he got in the car an hour before the accident, on his way to see Julia. But then…nothing.

Why was he driving away from Julia’s apartment when the car hit him?

What did he see just before the impact?

Julian bears the weight of not knowing. His quest will take him to places he never expected, and to stories he never wanted to hear.

A broken cop. A fragile child. Can they save each other?

Detective Harvey Sam’s training at The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children prepared him for the most important case of his career to date, the abduction of eight-year-old Gabriel Wheeler. Nothing, however, could prepare him for the boy’s blame-shifting mother from hell who shoots up instead of alerting police when the boy goes missing. Nor is Harvey equipped to deal with the heartbreak when his girlfriend leaves him on the same night, taking Effie, the non-biological young daughter Harvey adores.

The case goes cold when Harvey fails to interview Effie’s best friend, the only witness able to identify the perpetrator’s car. As police resources are wasted on dead ends and wrong suspects, Gabriel receives unlikely help to escape from Willard Crawley, a simple-minded abductor seeking a replacement for the infant brother he accidentally suffocated years before.

The-Naphils-Kiss

While vacationing in Greece in 1956, Lily Tassos, the hard-partying daughter of a powerful arms dealer, has a sudden change in plans.

After her sometime boyfriend —a CIA agent— is murdered before her eyes, she finds herself holding a ticket to Moscow and a mysterious metal card. A far cry from her usual pairing of a Faulkner novel and bottle (or two) of white Bordeaux.

Alone and haunted by her lover’s death, apolitical Lily resolves to complete his mission and find out who killed him.

Masquerading as a gung-ho member of the American Communist Party, she travels to Moscow, where she is contacted by Pasha Tarkhan. Brutal, yet charismatic, Tarkhan is both a high-ranking Soviet official and CIA asset, not to mention a covert supporter of the Russian Spiritual Underground. This alliance of self-styled “deists” have rejected the secular Soviet state and vowed to bring it down by means of faith, prayer…and blood.

Grinding her old life beneath the heel of her Dior stiletto, Lily puts her new one on the line, surrendering to fate, love and, for once, events bigger than herself.
