In-yong Han—Solo to his friends—is a Korean-American cop detailed from San Francisco to American Samoa to advance his career, bring modern forensic methods to this remote South Pacific Territory, and keep peace between the Korean commericial fishermen and the Samoans. And he's failing spectacularly. His wife has left him, a white American doctor has just been murdered, and Han gets caught in a riot between the tuna boat Koreans and a Samoan mob. Picking up the pieces, he acquires an odd group of helpers: a demonic Samoan surgeon, an American woman expert on leprosy and avoiding emotional entanglements, and a Samoan aristocrat who may be a saint or a murderer. By the time it's all over, they all learn that the trappings of evil may be different in different cultures, but the central bits are very much the same.

Karen Leabo spins a sexy, thrilling story of an FBI agent playing a dangerous game—and falling head over heels in love with his beautiful target. Special agent Clint Nichols has had suspected gangster Jimmy Gabriole in his sights for a while. Then Jimmy makes it personal and kidnaps Clint’s ex-wife. Never one to back down, Clint takes action. His plan is straightforward: hijack Jimmy’s sailboat, snatch the man’s sister, and negotiate an exchange. But the moment Clint lays eyes on Marissa Gabriole, he can think of nothing else but getting tangled between the sheets with the stunning beauty. Marissa knew that spending the weekend on her brother’s yacht was a bad idea. First Marissa discovers that she’s prone to seasickness. Then she’s taken hostage by a man who claims that Jimmy is in cahoots with the mob. Marissa should be terrified, but something about the tender, uncompromising agent steadies her nerves. As Clint fights to keep his mission (and himself) alive, Marissa learns that nothing is what it seems—and realizes that her abductor is slowly but surely capturing her heart.

THE GREEN, THE BLACK, AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA is the debut novel by writing partners Balestri & Celeste introducing Summer Kane, a 17-year-old lifeguard on Narragansett Beach, and Gabriel, a handsome young fisherman working on a fishing trawler out of Point Judith, Rhode Island, who guards a deep secret. Eight years before, Summer lost her only brother in a gigantic freak wave while sailing with her family in Narragansett Bay. Traumatized by the accident, she spent her childhood mostly alone, practicing the magic tricks her brother James had taught her and swimming in the ocean near her house. Equal parts smart and athletic and awkward and nerdy, her self-sufficiency is thrown for a loop when she meets Gabriel, who seems out of place in the company of the thick-necked, rough fishermen of New England. And he appears and disappears with unnerving frequency at odd times at the beach. Summer and Gabriel are instantly drawn to each other, but Summer’s father, a high-ranking government scientist, inexplicably forbids her from seeing him. Summer defies her father and sneaks off to see Gabriel—and stumbles upon his secret. In the adventure that ensues, Summer learns something profound and unexpected about herself.

“Titanic meets Tom Clancy technology” in this national-bestselling account of the SS Central America’s wreckage and discovery (People). September 1875. With nearly six hundred passengers returning from the California Gold Rush, the side-wheel steamer SS Central America encountered a violent storm and sank two hundred miles off the Carolina coast. More than four hundred lives and twenty-one tons of gold were lost. It was a tragedy lost in legend for more than a century—until a brilliant young engineer named Tommy Thompson set out to find the wreck. Driven by scientific curiosity and resentful of the term “treasure hunt,” Thompson searched the deep-ocean floor using historical accounts, cutting-edge sonar technology, and an underwater robot of his own design. Navigating greedy investors, impatient crewmembers, and a competing salvage team, Thompson finally located the wreck in 1989 and sailed into Norfolk with her recovered treasure: gold coins, bars, nuggets, and dust, plus steamer trunks filled with period clothes, newspapers, books, and journals. A great American adventure story, Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea is also a fascinating account of the science, technology, and engineering that opened Earth’s final frontier, providing “white-knuckle reading, as exciting as anything . . . in The Perfect Storm” (Los Angeles Times Book Review). “A complex, bittersweet history of two centuries of American entrepreneurship, linked by the mad quest for gold.” —Entertainment Weekly “A ripping true tale of danger and discovery at sea.” —The Washington Post “What a yarn! . . . If you sign on for the cruise, go in knowing that you’re going to miss meals and a lot of sleep.” —Newsweek
