Karna Small Bodman's first thriller, Checkmate, was praised for its compelling authenticity and page-turning plot. Now Bodman, a former director of the National Security Council, returns with another gripping thriller that reads like tomorrow's headlines. American planes are being shot out of the sky, and no one knows how or why. Three commercial jets have gone up in flames. In each crash, nobody reported seeing anything in the sky and nothing showed up on the radar. No planes. No missiles. Dr. Cameron Talbot, a world-famous expert on missile-defense systems, believes that a new stealth technology is being used in these attacks. With the country in a panic and the economy taking a nosedive, the White House orders the beautiful young scientist to protect America's endangered airways. The assignment places Cammy in mortal jeopardy as she finds herself stalked by nameless assassins. Who is behind the threat? Islamic jihadists? The big drug cartels? None of the usual suspects have claimed responsibility for the crashes. As Cammy races against time to develop a defense against the mystery weapon, she comes to suspect that the downed planes are only the opening gambit in an ambitious campaign of conquest that could change the world's balance of power forever.

What if America had lost the Revolutionary War? And now lived in constant fear and oppression? From the bestselling author of Nightshade, this is the action-packed final chapter of The Inventor's Secret trilogy Charlotte has spent her whole life fighting the British Empire, following in the footsteps of her parents and their group of rebels. But when her reunion with her mother laid bare horrible truths about the rebellion, Charlotte knew she had to escape. Now she is on the run, with no idea who the enemy is--or which of her compatriots is truly on her side. In this action-packed conclusion to the Inventor's Secret trilogy, full of swashbuckling pirates and young ladies who can hold their own against them, Charlotte will need to fight for her life and for her beliefs -- whatever they might be. Praise for The Turncoat's Gambit: "As in the previous two volumes, there is plenty of fighting and chicanery, but one of the best things about this series is that the characters are never sacrificed on the altar of action. . . . Series readers will especially relish the last several chapters. Yes, there is fighting and death, but restoration and romance win the day."--Booklist Praise for The Conjurer's Riddle: "This is classic steampunk [with] exotic and picturesque locales, lots of interesting machinery, and the adrenaline rush of following the adventures of an honest and fearless heroine. A suitably swashbuckling sequel."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Inventor's Secret: * "Cremer...creates an inventive blend of steampunk and alternative history in this new series. She gives readers a fantastical world with mechanical wonders and an opulent vintage setting. The characters are interesting and well developed. Readers will be drawn to future installments."--VOYA, starred review "[A]n entertaining romp in a richly imaginative setting."--Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.

The assembled crew from Napoleon’s Gold is called to an encore performance. While the fragile Peace of Amiens still holds, it is become clear that the French and Dutch in the East Indies are using the great Dutch base at Batavia to supply and encourage pirates and privateers to molest and sink British shipping in the North Java Sea and Straits of Singapore. Once again Sir Phillip Hollis is entreated to embark his private warships on a covert mission to accomplish what the Government fears to do using the Royal Navy, lest Napoleon exploit it as a cause to resume the war. Phillip, engaged in preparations for his wedding, is at first less than enthused, yet the lure of an epic adventure, along with the prospect of financial advantage, is hard to resist. Accosted from the start by assassins, vandals, French frigates and pirates on the high seas, not to mention the Burmese navy, and most pressing of all, a determined young wife, Phillip is beset on all sides in trying to satisfy both military, political, financial, and domestic agendas. Adventure, humour, and romance mingle to the sound of naval cannon and whispered intrigue.
