The Bishop's Pawn
(Cotton Malone #13)
by Steve Berry
History notes that the ugly feud between J. Edgar Hoover and Martin Luther King, Jr., marked by years of illegal surveillance and the accumulation of secret files, ended on April 4, 1968 when King was assassinated by James Earl Ray. But that may not have been the case.
Now, fifty years later, former Justice Department Agent, Cotton Malone, must reckon with the truth of what really happened that fateful day in Memphis.
In all turns on an incident from eighteen years ago, when Malone, as a young Navy Lawyer, is trying hard not to live up to his burgeoning reputation as a maverick. When Stephanie Nelle, a high-level Justice Department Lawyer, enlists him to help with an investigation, he jumps at the opportunity. But he soon discovers that two opposing forces- the Justice Department and the FBI- are at war over a rare coin and a cadre of secret files containing explosive revelations about the King Assassination, information that could ruin innocent lives and threaten the legacy of the civil rights movement's greatest martyr.
Malone's decision to see it through to the end- from the raucous bars of Mexico, to the clear waters of the Dry Tortugas, and ultimately into the halls of power within Washington D.C. itself- not only changes his own life, but the course of history.
by Francine Rivers
A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want- money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman's past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn't know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist- an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.
Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it's as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together... until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship- and both their lives- forever.
Promise Not To Tell
(Cutler, Sutter & Salinas Book #2)

A painter of fiery, nightmarish visions throws herself into the sea- but she leaves her secrets behind...
Seattle gallery owner Virginia Troy has spent years battling the demons that stem from her childhood time in a cult and the night a fire burned through the compound, killing her mother. And now one of her artists has taken her own life, but not before sending Virginia a last picture: a painting that makes Virginia doubt everything about the so-called suicide- and her own past.
Like Virginia, private investigator Cabot Sutter was one of the children in the cult who survived that fire... and only he can help her now. As they struggle to unravel the clues in the painting, it becomes clear that someone thinks Virginia knows more than she does and that she must be stopped. Thrown into an inferno of desire and deception, Virginia and Cabot draw ever closer to the mystery of their shared memories- and the shocking fate of the one man who still wields the power to destroy everything they hold dear.
