A VERY PUBLIC DISAPPEARANCE
California's "Boy with a Broken Heart," the teenage son of a recent governor, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Michael Campion, born with an incurable heart defect, has grown up under the watchful eye of an adoring public. The pressure on Detective Lindsay Boxer to learn what happened to Michael is overwhelming. When she finally does get a lead, it's devastating - and for Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano it leads to the biggest trial of her life.
A DEADLY RASH OF ARSONS
While working on the Campion case, Lindsay and her partner, Rich Conklin, also try to catch whoever is setting fire to some of the most beautiful homes in San Francisco, leaving their owners to perish in the flames. Lindsay brings in her friends in the Women's Murder Club to help her find the arsonist - and suddenly the fires start raging much too close to home.
A CHANCE AT 7TH HEAVEN
These two intense cases bring Lindsay and her partner, Rich, closer together than ever -and put Lindsay on the brink. Torn between two men and close to an emotional meltdown, she has to draw on every resource to keep from being pulled under. Full of the stunning twists and emotional surprises that only James Patterson can deliver, 7th Heaven is an unstoppable new thriller from "the man who can't miss" (Time magazine).
James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
"Patterson knows where our deepest fears are buried...There's no stopping his imagination."
-New York Times Book Review

"Riveting . . . fascinating . . . moves at breakneck speed . . . a must-read."
-BookReporter.com on 7th Heaven
"The opening two chapters of 7TH HEAVEN should be set to the Mission Impossible theme song. Tension and violence races through those first few pages as surely as that burning fuse tracked across the screen. And you won't be able to stop there."

"A fast-paced thriller . . . a swift and pleasurable read."
