“An engrossing saga of the suspensful, intriguing, and dangerous underwater investigation of a mystery U-boat.” -Clive Cussler

New York Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

In the tradition of Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air and Sebastian Junger’s The Perfect Storm comes a true tale of riveting adventure in which two weekend scuba divers risk everything to solve a great historical mystery–and make history themselves.

For John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, deep wreck diving was more than a sport. Testing themselves against treacherous currents, braving depths that induced hallucinatory effects, navigating through wreckage as perilous as a minefield, they pushed themselves to their limits and beyond, brushing against death more than once in the rusting hulks of sunken ships.

But in the fall of 1991, not even these courageous divers were prepared for what they found 230 feet below the surface, in the frigid Atlantic waters sixty miles off the coast of New Jersey: a World War II German U-boat, its ruined interior a macabre wasteland of twisted metal, tangled wires, and human bones–all buried under decades of accumulated sediment.

No identifying marks were visible on the submarine or the few artifacts brought to the surface. No historian, expert, or government had a clue as to which U-boat the men had found. In fact, the official records all agreed that there simply could not be a sunken U-boat and crew at that location.

Over the next six years, an elite team of divers embarked on a quest to solve the mystery. Some of them would not live to see its end. Chatterton and Kohler, at first bitter rivals, would be drawn into a friendship that deepened to an almost mystical sense of brotherhood with each other and with the drowned U-boat sailors–former enemies of their country. As the men’s marriages frayed under the pressure of a shared obsession, their dives grew more daring, and each realized that he was hunting more than the identities of a lost U-boat and its nameless crew.

Author Robert Kurson’s account of this quest is at once thrilling and emotionally complex, and it is written with a vivid sense of what divers actually experience when they meet the dangers of the ocean’s underworld. The story of Shadow Divers often seems too amazing to be true, but it all happened, two hundred thirty feet down, in the deep blue sea.

“All 3 books in this box set!! Need 5 star’s each!…amazing read…Each book’s flow was great, not too fast or slow, just perfect!” -Olivia R.

A collection of the first three books in the high-action JO MODEEN thriller series by Frank H Jordan.

With a salute to characters like Russell Blake’s thrilling Jet and Lee Child’s tough-as-nails Jack Reacher, THE MODEEN FACTOR, book one in the series, introduces Josephine Dakota Modeen MG, the kick-ass heroine we’d all like to have on our side.

Following a distinguished military career – having successfully passed the gruelling entry programme to be the first woman accepted into Australia’s elite SASR and earning the Medal for Gallantry in action – Modeen is left wondering what’s next. And for someone with her unique skills, the options are limited. When unexpectedly contacted by her old CO Ben Logan VC MG, now a team leader with Australia’s national security agency, she knows it’s not a social call.

What she doesn’t know is how it will change her life….

In book two, THE MODEEN TRANSFORMATION, Modeen’s team is in pursuit of ruthless kidnappers and their high-profile hostages, abducted during the 2014 international G20 Summit in Brisbane, Queensland. Always a step behind but remaining hopeful of finding the captives alive, the team tracks the wily kidnappers from the state’s south to its far north. And along the way they make a shocking discovery … of how close to home the threat lies.

In book three, MODEEN: BLACK OPS, Modeen is faced with a dilemma – should she follow her orders or her instincts? Her team disperses under deep cover to unravel the web of secrets surrounding their latest mission, which takes them from country Victoria to Australia’s national capital, and across the ocean to Kabul in Afghanistan.
And the stakes couldn’t be higher….

“Such a fun read! This truly is the perfect cozy series for me.” -Sherri O.

Top 5 Amazon Bestselling Author

When the Agatha Christie Book Club takes a short cruise on a replica steamship, the SS Orient—a real ship that once sailed between London and the colonies—they expect little more than a glamorous voyage back in time. What they get has eerie echoes of the original Orient Express, including a passenger dead in their bed, a threatening note and more clues than you can poke a blood-soaked dagger at.

When a second passenger vanishes overboard in the dead of night soon after, the team suspect they have a madman on their hands and abandon their shuffleboard to investigate.

The problem is, just like Hercule Poirot, they have very little time, no CCTV, and enough red herrings to fill a seafood buffet. It doesn’t help that the entire ship is rallying behind the leading suspect Captain Van Tussi, a man with friends in high places who may—or may not—be taking everyone for a ride.

Jump aboard for the latest adventure of the Agatha Christie Book Club, a beloved group of friends who include devoted sisters Alicia and Lynette, poisons expert Dr Anders, ditzy librarian Missy, paleontologist Perry and vintage queen Claire. This time there’s a new member lurking in the wings—can you guess who it will be?

“The characters in these books are my kind of people. I loved their interactions, talking smack one minute and sharing hugs the next. They are flawed, funny, have hang-ups and love passionately.” -S.C.

Amazon Bestselling Author

The first three full-length books in the enchanting Lake Howling series, from bestselling author Wendy Vella. These sexy, contemporary romances are filled with heart, humor and characters you’ll fall in love with.


When Branna O’Donnell heads back to Lake Howling, Oregon, she’s not sure what to expect. It’s a place that holds plenty of memories, both good and bad, but Branna is determined to find some peace there from the demons of her past. However, she soon realizes that living in a small town again comes with complications and one of them is named Jake McBride.

Once the town golden boy, Dr. McBride has returned from Iraq angry and, like her, shouldering a few emotional scars. They strike sparks off each other from the outset and Branna knows that if she gives in to the attraction between them it’s going to result in a world of pain. The problem is she’s not sure how to walk away.


Annabelle Smith has never had it easy, but she’s a survivor. So when her brother cleans out her bank account, she reluctantly turns to the one man she’d vowed to stay away from. Ethan Gelderman is a hot, sexy Texan, who has more numbers in his black book than most men have socks, and placing her trust in him is one of the hardest things she’s ever had to do.

Lake Howling is home to Ethan’s closest friends, and it’s also where Annabelle “firebrand” Smith lives. Sassy, beautiful and pricklier than a cactus, she’s never made it a secret that she wants nothing to do with him, but he sure as hell wants something to do with her. Lord knows, it’s going to be hard to earn her trust, but Ethan’s never backed down from a challenge yet, and he soon realizes trust is just the beginning of what he wants from Annabelle.


At sixteen Willow Harper learned a few valuable life lessons that molded her into the uptight, commitment-phobic woman she is today. Determined to have the security she sorely lacked as a child, Willow’s sole focus is on furthering her career. No time for love, lust or romance – Willow is All Business. So when a chance to secure her future means a trip to secluded Lake Howling, Oregon, she leaps at the opportunity.

Sure, it isn’t New York City, but Willow’s only planning on being there a few days, then she’ll be back to the safety and anonymity of the city. But when the very man who’s been haunting her fantasies for years appears in Lake Howling, suddenly Willow’s carefully planned strategy is in tatters.

Don’t try to tell me that you’ve never checked that weird mole on your thigh on WebMD. Or how to fold meringue on Epicurious. And, there’s no way that I’m the only one who clears her search history after looking up how to give a great bl— (Um, that last one’s not important.)”

When newspaper reporter Avery Fowler discovers her husband is having an affair, the online help site is where she turns to navigate this challenging stage of her life.

If the Internet is Avery’s information god, then is her Holy Grail. Its live chat option is like having a virtual life coach for the low, low price of $14.95 a month:

“When I joined, it assigned me “Clementine” as my advisor, based on my choice of “British female” in the Preferences panel. That way, I can pretend that a Maggie Smith or Judi Dench type supplies the wisdom, tinged with a sassy touch of malt vinegar. (In reality, it’s most likely a bored, seventeen-year-old boy labouring in a New Delhi call centre.)”

Add into the mix a new boss whose managerial style calls to mind the Wicked Bitch Witch of the West—or the Anti-Christ—and the poor girl needs all the help she can get! The stakes rise and hilarity ensues as our heroine struggles to take control of her personal life and topple her boss after she learns Victoria’s guilty secret.

With Clementine (virtually) in tow, our heroine tackles such tricky situations as dating after divorce, sex once nothing points north anymore, and how to cover attempted murder scenes (despite a paralyzing fear of blood) as the new and improved Avery Fowler 2.0.

That’s the last straw.

Looks aren’t the only things that can be deceiving…

When a sixty-eight-year-old woman is found dead outside the hospital in a wheelchair with an anti-abortion sign strapped to its back, Detective Madison Knight expects it to be an open-and-shut case. On the surface, there are no signs of foul play, but the deeper she digs, the more convoluted the homicide becomes. And when two more bodies appear, including those of a girl just barely old enough to drink and a homeless man, the direct links between the three murders are anything but simple.

Without a consistent MO, Madison doesn’t buy that a serial killer is on the loose, despite the conviction with which her ex-fiancé and fellow detective try to convince their superior. But Madison already has enough to juggle without having to defend her reputation. Debilitating flashbacks of being held hostage by the Russian Mafia mere months before haunt her on an almost daily basis, and the promises she made to herself while in captivity are becoming more and more difficult to keep. Learning to trust is hard enough without constant reminders of what destruction—fatal or otherwise—trusting the wrong person can cause.

Now, as both personal and professional friction within the department mounts, she and her partner, Terry, must figure out what motivation could span generations to cause someone to murder these people. But catching this killer is like grasping at straws, and grabbing the wrong one could mean losing not only her pride but also her boyfriend, her credibility, and her faith in humanity…
