Legal Thrillers

Celebrated criminal attorney Marc Kadella’s playing in the big leagues now. As his renown grows, so does the epic size of the personalities who now seek his representation – along with the complexity and often the distastefulness of the cases. Marc increasingly finds himself at the center of the explosive events of the day. He might be mellowing (slightly), as many men would, when gorgeous investigator Maddy Rivers becomes much more than an associate – and more than a friend. But author Carstens consistently delivers intricate, twisty-turny plotting and gripping courtroom drama, to the delight of classic and noir readers alike.

When celebrated criminal lawyer Marc Kadella takes on the fall-out of a class action suit against a beloved corporate toy company, he discovers a vipers’ den of insider trading, sex scandal, political corruption, and murder, in this heart-racing financial thriller.

Mystery, Crime and Romance

Grace Rampling is accustomed to covering the news, not being part of it.

When she learns that the Pride Choir has been banned from performing in the cathedral, she rushes to the church to get some answers.

Instead, she literally stumbles onto a grisly crime scene: the bishop is lying in a pool of his own blood before the altar. Suddenly, Grace is no longer the observer and reporter. She finds herself central to the case — not only as the key witness, but a suspect and even potential victim.

Lead investigator Detective Sergeant Adam Davis is thrown by the fierce attraction he feels toward Grace that, if acted upon, could throw the entire case into jeopardy.

With Grace at risk and off limits, he races to unravel an increasingly disturbing mystery, while he struggles to both protect and resist the woman of his dreams.

Great Britain History

A Sunday Times number one bestseller in the United Kingdom, this is the intimate and revealing autobiography of Margaret Rhodes, first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and niece of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Margaret was born into the Scottish aristocracy, into a now almost vanished world of privilege. Royalty often came to stay, and her house was run in the style of Downton Abbey. During the Second World War, she “lodged” at Buckingham Palace while she worked for MI5. She was a bridesmaid at the wedding of her cousin, Princess Elizabeth, to Prince Philip. Three years later, the King and Queen attended her own wedding, in which Princess Margaret was a bridesmaid.

In 1990, she was appointed as a lady-in-waiting to the Queen Mother, acting also as her companion, which she describes in touching detail. In the early months of 2002, she spent as much time as possible with her ailing aunt and was at her bedside when she died.

Military Thrillers

The USS Kentucky—a Trident ballistic missile submarine carrying a full complement of 192 nuclear warheads—is about to go on a routine patrol. Not long after it reaches the open sea, however, the Kentucky receives a launch order. After receiving that launch order, it is cut off from all counter-orders and disappears into the Pacific while it makes the eight-day transit to the launch site. What the Kentucky’s crew doesn’t know is that those launch orders haven’t actually come from the U.S. government.

Rogue elements within the Mossad have learned that Iran has developed its first nuclear weapon and, in ten days, will detonate it—and the target is Israel. The suspected weapon complex is too far underground for conventional weapons to harm it, and the only choice is a pre-emptive nuclear strike. With limited time, this rogue group initiates a long-planned operation called the Trident Deception. They’ll transmit false orders and use a U.S. nuclear submarine to launch the attack.
