Truth is, everybody’s going to hurt you: you just got to find the ones worth suffering for.—Bob Marley When Nina’s boyfriend Ray, uses her as collateral in a drug deal she realizes that you don’t know what love is until you’ve experienced what it isn’t. Bobby Lee, a gutsy boxer, is told by his corrupt manager to throw a big fight or pay a heavy price, with his life. Nina finds only one chance to get out of the situation her boyfriend Ray has put her into. And when the guy who holds her until Ray returns, rapes her then makes the fatal mistake of dozing off, well, she sees the gun and puts him to sleep forever. Bobby Lee’s pride won’t let him go out the way his manager wants him to. Instead he’ll take his chances and knocks his opponent out and goes on the run because he knows the price he’ll have to pay for the “betrayal.” It is a dark fate that brings together the boxer and the girl with a gun, a bag of cash and drugs as they race across the country just one jump ahead of men who would see them dead and buried.

Edgar Award Winner for Best Mystery Novel: “Takes off like a Chinook and whisks you through a labyrinth non-stop until the final sentence” (Clive Cussler). Russian poet Boris Kotlikoff defected to the United States two years ago. He left with no state secrets; he is no threat to the Soviets in anyway; yet now he has become their prize hostage, buried alive somewhere in New York City. The US government, on the defensive as always, treads on cat feet. But it does not take into consideration the doggedness of Ben Leary, an agent with Immigration and Naturalization. They also close their eyes to a parallel search by Gus Geller, a hatchet man for the CIA. And the government isn’t even aware of Charlie Brewer, a discredited ex-CIA agent Geller puts in charge of the actual search. Will the vicious infighting among these three in a struggle against time and missed opportunities set up Kotlikoff as a doomed pawn? “Compelling . . . A kind of catch-22.” —Time

The dark side of love is no fairy tale.... And while we may like to believe that crimes of the heart only victimize those who aren't careful, this page-turning collection of must-read accounts will convince you otherwise. America's #1 true-crime writer, Ann Rule reveals how lovers become predators, how sex and lust can push ordinary people to desperate acts, and how investigators and forensics experts work to unravel the most entangled crimes of passion. Extracting behind-the-scenes details, Rule makes these volatile relationships utterly real, and masterfully re-creates the ill-fated chains of events in such cases as the ex-Marine and martial arts master who seduced vulnerable women and then destroyed their lives...the killer whose calling card was a single bloodred rose...the faithless wife who manipulated and murdered without conscience...the blind date that set the stage for a killer's brutality...and more. In every case, the victim -- young and innocent or older and experienced -- unknowingly trusted a stranger with the sociopathic skill to hide their dark motives, until it was too late to escape a web of deadly lies, fatal promises, and homicidal possession.

A man wakes up after a fatal car accident—in someone else’s body—in this ahead-of-its-time Hugo Award–nominated classic. Thomas Blaine remembered the car accident that killed him—and then he woke up in the hospital. A nurse told him where he was. “You’d call it being in the future.” A future where bodies are sold to the highest bidder as new homes for the minds of the rich, who are greedy for more life when their own bodies wear out or are damaged. Suddenly, keeping body and soul together has taken on a new, and very sinister, meaning. From the very beginning of his career, Robert Sheckley was recognized by fans, reviewers, and fellow authors as a master storyteller and the wittiest satirist working in the science fiction field. Open Road is proud to republish his acclaimed body of work, with nearly thirty volumes of full-length fiction and short story collections. Rediscover, or discover for the first time, a master of science fiction who, according to the New York Times, was “a precursor to Douglas Adams.”

Elven soldier Willow serves the human Kingdom of Bryanae in a bid to overcome her traumatic past. Emotionally crippled and driven by her personal demons, she has buried that past so deeply that she has forgotten it altogether … but it hasn't forgotten her. Paralyzed by an inexplicable terror, she watches helplessly as old enemies kidnap the Prince. Considered by most of Bryanae to be a coward and a traitor, Willow decides she must confront her past and plunge into the heart of the enemy empire to rescue the Prince. Aside from the steel blade she wields with lethal expertise, Willow has only dubious allies upon whom to rely—a headstrong private who’s in love with her, an inscrutable winged mage with a hidden agenda, and a dashing but opportunistic captain whom she desires against her better judgment. An army of fanatical warriors stands in her way. Leading them is the mad and seemingly immortal Warlord who has a personal grudge to settle with Willow: one that spans centuries. Willow has devoted her life to discipline and now she must bring that discipline to bear. Pain will not stop her. Fear will not stop her. She will rescue the Prince or die trying. Willow has been honing her combat and weaponry skills for a very long time. It’s time to put those skills to good use. PRINCE OF BRYANAE is an epic fantasy novel filled with intense battles, romance, betrayal, and redemption. “Prince of Bryanae brought me back to that special place I haven’t visited in a long time … where the author’s energy and love for his or her magical vision is pure and fresh. … It’s the world-building that makes Prince of Bryanae truly sing; it’s so obvious that Jeff Getzin has spent years living in this world, learning this world, falling in love with this world and making this world a place where he can share with us so many wonderful adventures” — New York Times Bestselling author R. A. Salvatore
