***PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AS PART OF AN ANTHOLOGY CALLED DROP DEAD CRIME***<br />**IF YOU BOUGHT DROP DEAD CRIME, DO NOT BUY THIS**<br /><br />When retired Philadelphia detective turned private investigator Joselyn Rush is rear-ended, her knee-jerk response is anger, especially when the well-dressed woman driving tries to flee the scene. But as Jocelyn watches in disbelief, the woman jumps off the bridge, plunging to her death in the Schuylkill River one hundred fifty feet below.<br /><br />Wracked with guilt, especially after learning the woman, Molly Porter, left behind a small child, Jocelyn wants answers. Why would a woman who seemingly had it all commit suicide because of a car accident?<br /><br />But the more Jocelyn learns about Molly’s life and her past, the less perfect it seems. Because Molly Porter had secrets…secrets with dangerous consequences.<br />

<b>Available for the first time as an eBook, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey’s thrilling short story <i>Harlem</i></b><br /> <i><br />“People called me Harlem. I dubbed myself after that dangerous neighborhood that I’d never seen. I read life is rough in Harlem, and a black man isn’t expected to live to see twenty-five. I was twenty-three. The clock was ticking.”</i><br /><br />When Harlem gets off on a murder charge due to insanity, the asylum he’s sent to feels worse than death, with one exception: the beautiful nurse Daphane. As their relationship grows, so do the stakes: she has the ability to help him escape, and he has the ability to set her free from her abusive relationship. Yet Harlem has one big secret: he was perfectly sane when he committed his crime. But in the end, Daphane’s own secret may be the deadliest of all. . . .<br /> <b><br />Includes an excerpt from Eric’s upcoming novel, <i>Before We Were Wicked</i>, coming April 2019. </b><i>Harlem</i> was previously published in the 2006 anthology <i>Voices from the Other Side</i>.

<b>Tracy Crosswhite’s ordinary night patrolling her Seattle beat becomes front page news when she responds to a domestic disturbance call that turns into a hostage crisis.</b><br /> <br />In this prequel short story to Robert Dugoni’s #1 Kindle-bestselling novel, <i>My Sister’s Grave</i>, Tracy Crosswhite is a young patrol officer, paying her dues, keeping her head down, and hoping a solid record will get her promoted to detective. While years have passed since the disappearance of Tracy’s sister, the experience has made her one of the city’s most dedicated cops.<br /> <br />Reporter Tevia Kushman is shadowing Tracy on a ride-along seeking to follow-up on a recent (and nasty) exposé about the Seattle PD’s treatment of female cops. Young and ambitious, Tevia is hoping for a juicy scoop on the gender politics of the PD, but may get a much bigger story than she bargained for…<br /> <br />Neither woman expects a routine-sounding call to turn into something dangerous, until Tracy walks into a domestic dispute and finds herself looking down the barrel of a shot-gun. No stranger to high-pressure situations, Tracy must draw on more than just her academy training and lightning-fast shooting skills to find a way to talk down—or take out—the volatile man holding the gun. <br /> <br /><br />Praise for Robert Dugoni:<br /><br />“John Grisham, move over.”—<i>The Seattle Times</i><br /><br />“Dugoni is a superb storyteller, and his courtroom drama shines…this “Grave’’ is one to get lost in.”— <i>The Boston Globe</i> on <i>My Sister’s Grave</i><br /><br />“Combines the best of a police procedural with a legal thriller, and the end result is outstanding . . . Dugoni continues to deliver emotional and gut-wrenching, character-driven suspense stories that will resonate with any fan of the thriller genre.”—<i>Library Journal</i> starred review of <i>My Sister’s Grave</i>, one of <i>LJ’s</i> picks for Best Thriller of 2014<br />

As a melder of energy, she’s capable of severing anything in her path. So she ‘leaves’ her family and trains to become one of the best and most lethal of assassins, all the while covertly guarding her family’s interests. Now she’s ready to quit; but she has one more assignment.<br /><br />To kill the man who ruined her life. <br />
