Rediscover the Bone Island trilogy, a thrilling suspense series from New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham. There are those who walk among us who are no longer alive, but not yet crossed over. They seek retribution…vengeance…to warn. Among the living, few intuit their presence. Katie O’Hara is one who can. As she’s drawn deeper and deeper into a gruesome years-old murder, whispered warnings from a spectral friend become more and more insistent. But Katie must uncover the truth: could David Beckett really be guilty of his fiancée’s murder? Worse—the body count’s rising on the Island of Bones, and the dead seem to be reenacting some macabre tableaux from history. The danger is increasing by the moment—especially as Katie finds herself irresistibly drawn to David, who may be responsible for more than just one killing… Originally published in 2010

Pigeon Spring "Iconic Las Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton said, "Danke Schoen to Groman. I enjoyed reading Pigeon Spring from cover to cover."" After 25 years as an undercover FBI agent, Matt Steel decides to retire and takes a job as the director of security at a major Las Vegas casino. Matt and Alex, his wife, thought they could finally relax and enjoy life at their ranch in the mountainous region of Death Valley. However, fate takes them on an unexpected path when Alex finds an ancient Native American artifact on their property that plays a pivotal role in the novel's surprise ending. Readers will enjoy following Matt, Alex, and Charlie (Matt's longtime partner at the bureau) as they travel from the glamour and scams of Las Vegas to the beauty and grit of Nevada's rugged gold country. The former FBI agents go to work after Matt recognizes the subtle trademarks a crook he encountered 15 years earlier. Things get personal when Matt discovers that a corrupt official is helping his former nemesis to steal a gold claim from two of his friends. Groman employs a murder for hire scheme, wiretaps, surveillances, and a mystical twist to keep reader engaged from beginning to end. In real life, FBI Agent Herman Groman was like a TV action hero, full of life, full of boyish enthusiasm, a fearless crime fighter who took down dirty judges and dirty cops and scary mobsters. I marveled at his skills as an FBI Agent. And now, much to my surprise and delight, I am marveling at his literary skills and ability to take his larger-than-life experiences and his insatiable appetite for history, and weave them all into Pigeon Spring, a riveting novel chock full of great dialogue and action. Very, very impressive. Can not wait for the next one. " -- Allan Lengel, former reporter for Detroit News and Washington Post; currently editor of ticklethewire.com " Gromans debut novel Pigeon Spring is a skillful blend of the nonstop action of Las Vegas and the rural ranch life in Nevadas gold country with a mystical twist. His background as a veteran FBI Special Agent and Las Vegas casino security director gives him a unique and realistic insight into both worlds. I felt the tension and I laughed out loud a couple of times, but my favorite part was when retired FBI Agent Matt Steel catches a predator. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. " -- Chris Hansen, Dateline NBC Correspondent and Author of To Catch A Predator" Herm Groman is one of the sharpest and most courageous investigators I have ever encountered... Among his fellow federal agents, he is something of a legend. The same skills that made him such a formidable lawman are clearly reflected in his new book, Pigeon Spring. He is an astute student of human nature, a keen observer of his surroundings, and has a unique ability to focus on the stuff that really matters. Nevada is a better place because Herm Groman came here, and this book is a testament to his talent for understanding the big picture. " -- George Knapp, 2008 Peabody Award winning investigative reporter and co-host of nationally broadcast radio talk sho, Coast to Coast AM" "Pigeon Spring" has something for every reader: suspense, history and a great story line. Groman not only spins a great yarn, but his years of experience as a Special Agent with the FBI brings a gritty authenticity to the book. A wonderful read. " -- Lt. Randy Sutton, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept; Author of True Blue: Police Stories by Those Who Have Lived Them, A Cops Life and True Blue: To protect and Serve." Exciting read from an author who lived the life. A must read...a real page turner! " -- Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco, NY Times best-selling author of Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia"

The notorious Opium-Eater returns in the sensational climax to David Morrell's acclaimed Victorian mystery trilogy. 1855. The railway has irrevocably altered English society, effectively changing geography and fueling the industrial revolution by shortening distances between cities: a whole day's journey can now be covered in a matter of hours. People marvel at their new freedom. But train travel brings new dangers as well, with England's first death by train recorded on the very first day of railway operations in 1830. Twenty-five years later, England's first train murder occurs, paralyzing London with the unthinkable when a gentleman is stabbed to death in a safely locked first-class passenger compartment. In the next compartment, the brilliant opium-eater Thomas De Quincey and his quick-witted daughter, Emily, discover the homicide in a most gruesome manner. Key witnesses and also resourceful sleuths, they join forces with their allies in Scotland Yard, Detective Ryan and his partner-in-training, Becker, to pursue the killer back into the fogbound streets of London, where other baffling murders occur. Ultimately, De Quincey must confront two ruthless adversaries: this terrifying enemy, and his own opium addiction which endangers his life and his tormented soul. Ruler of the Night is a riveting blend of fact and fiction which, like master storyteller David Morrell's previous De Quincey novels, "evokes Victorian London with such finesse that you'll hear the hooves clattering on cobblestones, the racket of dustmen, and the shrill calls of vendors" (Entertainment Weekly).

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A thrilling novel based on actual events, about the nature of genius, the cost of ambition, and the battle to electrify America—from the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Imitation Game and author of The Sherlockian NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER • SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING EDDIE REDMAYNE New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history—and a vast fortune. A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, takes a case that seems impossible to win. Paul’s client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the light bulb and holds the right to power the country? The case affords Paul entry to the heady world of high society—the glittering parties in Gramercy Park mansions, and the more insidious dealings done behind closed doors. The task facing him is beyond daunting. Edison is a wily, dangerous opponent with vast resources at his disposal—private spies, newspapers in his pocket, and the backing of J. P. Morgan himself. Yet this unknown lawyer shares with his famous adversary a compulsion to win at all costs. How will he do it? In obsessive pursuit of victory, Paul crosses paths with Nikola Tesla, an eccentric, brilliant inventor who may hold the key to defeating Edison, and with Agnes Huntington, a beautiful opera singer who proves to be a flawless performer on stage and off. As Paul takes greater and greater risks, he’ll find that everyone in his path is playing their own game, and no one is quite who they seem. Praise for The Last Days of Night “A satisfying romp . . . Takes place against a backdrop rich with period detail . . . Works wonderfully as an entertainment . . . As it charges forward, the novel leaves no dot unconnected.”—Noah Hawley, The New York Times Book Review “This captivating historical novel illuminates a fascinating American moment.”—People “A fascinating portrait of American inventors . . . Moore crafts a compelling narrative out of [Paul] Cravath’s cunning legal maneuvers and [Nikola] Tesla’s world-changing tinkering, while a story line on opera singer Agnes Huntington has the mysterious glamour of The Great Gatsby. . . . Moore weaves a complex web. . . . He conjures Gilded Age New York City so vividly, it feels like only yesterday.”—Entertainment Weekly “A model of superior historical fiction . . . Graham Moore digs deep into long-forgotten facts to give us an exciting, sometimes astonishing story of two geniuses locked in a brutal battle to change the world. . . . [A] brilliant journey into the past.”—The Washington Post “Mesmerizing, clever, and absolutely crackling, The Last Days of Night is a triumph of imagination. Graham Moore has chosen Gilded Age New York as his playground, with outsized characters—Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse—as his players. The result is a beautifully researched, endlessly entertaining novel that will leave you buzzing.”—Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl “It’s part legal thriller, part tour of a magical time—the age of wonder—and once you’ve finished it, you’ll find it hard to return to the world of now.”—Erik Larson, author of The Devil in the White City
