A female private investigator goes undercover to expose a high-flying prostitution ring in this “action-filled thriller” that “packs an erotic punch” (The Boston Globe). Tough, smart, and resourceful, Alex Shanahan survived the cutthroat corporate world on her own terms. Now she’s using her hard-earned experience as a private investigator. Alex is hired to check out an airline that’s been serving more than just in-flight beverages: there’s a high-end prostitution ring catering to first-class passengers. Alex goes undercover as a flight attendant to infiltrate the group. But she can’t stay hidden in the clouds forever, and when her cover is blown, the turbulence that follows might make this flight her last. “Get ready for the plane ride of your life .. . . Heitman is an excellent storyteller who creates wonderful and believable characters. . . . First Class Killing will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next Alex Shanahan novel.” —Old Book Barn Gazette

Four aviation thrillers from an author who “melds the maze of today’s airline industry with intrigue and mystery” (John J. Nance). The friendly skies are anything but in these expertly crafted novels of suspense set in the cutthroat world of the airline industry, now available in one volume. In Hard Landing—called “an edge-of-your seat thriller that sweeps you up and carries you along for the ride” by Lisa Gardner—Alex Shanahan takes over Majestic Airlines at Logan International Airport, and discovers that her predecessor’s mysterious death may not have been suicide. In Parts Unknown, black market airplane parts put countless lives at risk, including Alex’s. In the “action-filled” First Class Killing, Alex goes undercover as a flight attendant to bust up a mile-high prostitution ring (The Boston Globe). And in The Pandora Key, a very cold case heats up, and puts Alex in the crosshairs of the Russian mob, as acclaimed author Lynne Hinton brings “the whole shebang to a taut, satisfying conclusion” (Publishers Weekly).

This Edgar Award–winning crime novel offers “pulp fiction in Castro’s Cuba” (Martin Cruz Smith, author The Girl from Venice). Alicia is a smart, confident, and gorgeous prostitute in Havana. She is not a streetwalker. Rather, she displays her wares on bicycle, seducing men through the irresistible pull of her fine derrière. John King, her new client, is a Canadian businessman with a striking resemblance to movie star Alain Delon. This is no ordinary john, and as Alicia’s feelings for him grow, she sees in their relationship the possibility of escape from her dead-end life in a city plagued with scarcity. So when King’s wealthy and sexually deviant boss is suddenly killed, Alicia and John hatch a get-rich-quick scheme. A web of deception is woven—but it will be quickly and disastrously unraveled, and only one person will be able to say adiós to the dilapidated island of Cuba . . . “Fun, fast, and intelligent . . .

A corpse in a country house brings Scotland Yard to an eerily quiet English village, in this tale by a master of British mystery. Cyril Savage has inherited the home of his wealthy and estranged aunt. But before Savage has the chance to discover her fortune, he is struck dead in the cellar of this once grand country house in the strange, nearly deserted village of Plumpton Bois. The police are baffled and—unable to unearth a motive, let alone a killer—call for the assistance of Scotland Yard. Inspector Littlejohn and Inspector Cromwell arrive in Plumpton Bois and find the village, the family, and the house itself full of secrets. The door to a locked room has been bashed open. Savage’s aunt is not nearly as rich as she seemed to be. And now, another body has turned up on Littlejohn’s watch . . .

Few films have been so keenly awaited or the subject of so much internet debate as the twelfth Star Trek movie -- the first since 2002 -- which is scheduled to be released in May 2009. Directed by J.J. Abrams, creator of cutting-edge cult television shows Lostand Alias, the film is expected to launch the Star Trekfranchise into a new stellar era. Going back to the very beginnings of the classic Star Trek, the film tells how James T. Kirk, the half-Vulcan Spock, Dr McCoy, engineer Montgomery Scott and crew members Chekov, Sulu and Uhura first came together as rookie Starfleet recruits, and how they embraced the destiny that would later send them out across the galaxy accompanied by the immortal words: 'These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise…' A largely brand new cast including Chris Pine as Kirk, Zachary Quinto (Heroes) as Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as McCoy alongside Eric Bana, Winona Ryder and Leonard Nimoy will bring Star Trekto a whole new audience, while at the same time Alan Dean Foster's novelization will enthrall both existing fans and a new generation of readers.

Every business has a dark side. “An intricate and explosive thriller…evocative prose..[a] tightly woven, compelling read. One of the year’s most notable thrillers.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY Alex Shanahan accepts a new job with a Detroit start-up airline when the death of her friend John McTavish takes her on a detour to Miami. But her trip turns perilous when Alex connects John's murder to the lucrative world of black-market airplane parts. Now Alex must walk into the darkest corner of the business she loves, where profits are valued over the lives of a planeload of passengers—and murder is the solution when millions are at stake. In a world where one faulty part can bring down an airline and catastrophe is an acceptable risk, Alex must tread carefully, because every step she takes could be her last. “Fast-moving and as fascinating as a natural disaster, the novel is suspenseful and electric and has the appeal of any insider story. Ms. Heitman is a former airline employee of 14 years, and her words ring true.” —THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS “Truly excellent…the best white-knuckle ride I’ve taken in a long time.” —Lee Child, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of ONE SHOT “[PARTS UNKNOWN] needs no blurbs…the book can lift off for itself.” —THE BOSTON GLOBE “Heitman melds the maze of today’s airline industry with intrigue and mystery.” —John Nance
