In this world, Dr. Charlotte Stone skillfully probes the twisted minds of serial killers, the better to understand and apprehend them. In the next world, though, her ghostly lover - convicted killer Michael Garland -- is facing death yet again, unless she can save his soul from oblivion by proving his innocence. This dead man's dead ringer may be the key. Rick Hughes could be Michael Garland's identical twin, but Charlie suspects that behind the handsome face lurks the murderer whose crimes Michael paid for. Now she's determined to use her profiling talents to uncover the truth. But when a prison break frees a gang of psychopaths, duty calls Charlie to join the manhunt -- even if it makes her a target. And if Michael wants to hold her one last time, he must make a devil's bargain: to trade his doom for her deliverance.

Dr Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. An expert in criminal pathology, Charlie regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. She's been obsessed with learning what makes human monsters commit terrible crimes since she was sixteen, when a man butchered the family of her best friend Holly, then left the girl's body on a seaside boardwalk one week later. Charlie kept quiet about her eerie postmortem visions of Holly and her mother. And even years later, knowing it might undermine her credibility as a psychological expert, she tells no one about the visits she gets from the spirit world. Now all-too-handsome FBI agent Tony Bartoli suspects the Boardwalk Killer is back. A teenage girl is missing, her family slaughtered. With time running short for the innocent girl, Bartoli turns to the only person who could stop this vicious murderer. But Dr. Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. And she sees the Boardwalk Killer coming for her.

Growing up, Bianca St. Ives knew she was different from all her friends. Instead of playing hopscotch or combing her dolls' hair, she studied martial arts with sensei masters and dismantled explosives with special-ops retirees.

Running a multinational firm with her father, she makes a living swindling con men out of money they stole—and she's damn good at it. She does things on her own terms.

The thing is, the US government doesn't believe he's really dead. They'll stop at nothing to capture Richard St. Ives, a high-value target and someone who has been on most-wanted lists all over the world for over two decades, and they mean to use Bianca as bait. With only a fellow criminal for backup and her life on the line, it's up to Bianca to uncover the terrifying truth behind what really happened…and set it right, before it's too late.

Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.
