Book 3
For wild-card ex-FBI agent Xanadu Marx, the war on terror hits close to home—thanks to a remorseless enemy who’s all too familiar—in this explosive thriller.
 
“Joshua Corin is a master storyteller.”—Douglas Preston, #1 bestselling co-creator of the Pendergast novels
 
It begins on a beautiful day in Atlanta, with a mosque full of Muslim worshippers celebrating the end of Ramadan. The festivities are cut brutally short when a military drone appears in the sky—and launches a missile into the building. Then, at a mosque in Dearborn, Michigan, another peaceful gathering is torn apart by the violent blast of a suicide bomber. The attacks set the entire nation on edge, with authorities scrambling to make sense of the situation and keep the populace calm while pundits and politicians of all stripes fight for time in the spotlight.
 
But for ex-FBI agent Xanadu Marx, her first instinct is revenge. Unwilling to let such savagery go unanswered, she plunges into the investigation the police have started—but only she can finish. Disregarding official warnings from the government and outright threats from others, she follows a trail of homegrown hatred and violence to uncover a conspiracy so cold-blooded that no one will believe her—even if she lives long enough to tell. . . .

Book 2
Hailed by Douglas Preston as “a master storyteller,” Joshua Corin returns with another white-knuckle thriller featuring ex-FBI agent Xanadu Marx. And this time, payback comes with a price tag.
 
They call themselves the Serendipity Group, a charitable organization that helps victims take revenge on those who’ve wronged them. But when the group’s hit list leaks, the hunters become the hunted—and two innocents are caught in the crossfire.
 
A pair of newlyweds are waylaid in Atlanta after a bad storm disrupts their flight to Paris. They are stuck in a dingy airport hotel room—until a stranger insists the happy couple take his lavish suite. But the man’s kindness is a ruse: They are being used as bait, and soon find themselves prisoners of a maniac with a hacksaw—all because of a list of thirteen people marked for execution.
 
Ex-FBI agent Xanadu Marx doesn’t know how her name ended up on the list, but she’ll be toast if she doesn’t take herself off it. Now a civilian on parole after a career-killing mistake, Xanadu Marx supposedly has three days to live, and the question isn’t whether she has an enemy gunning for her, it’s which one. But when two wide-eyed newlyweds may have become collateral damage, Xana realizes that there are some sins that can’t be forgiven.

Book 1
For readers of Preston & Child, James Rollins, and Brad Thor comes a gripping new thriller from Joshua Corin, in which an audacious hijacking is just the beginning of a twisted international nightmare.
 
Flight 816 has been hijacked and the terrorists have decided to auction off the passengers online. The passengers who receive the highest bids will be released. The passengers who receive the lowest bids will be executed.
 
Life can’t be better for veteran pilot Larry Walder. He has a great job, a terrific kid, a gorgeous wife—and no inkling that tonight will be the end of the world as he knows it. In the early hours before the Fourth of July, three men break into Larry’s home. And as the day lurches on to its terrifying course, a life is taken, and Flight 816 from Atlanta to Cozumel, Mexico, vanishes off the radar.
 
In the air, Larry must find a way to save his family, his crew, and his passengers. On the ground, disgraced FBI agent Xanadu Marx goes rogue, making it her mission to track down the missing flight before the hijackers reach their diabolical endgame. With the casualties racking up and the world’s busiest airport under lockdown, a message arrives: This is no ordinary hijacking, no typical hostage crisis. This ransom is a totally different beast—the first hint of a conspiracy that might bring America to its knees.

Praise for Cost of Life
 
“Joshua Corin is a master storyteller. Cost of Life is a thriller par excellence: brilliantly imaginative, well written, and delightfully diabolical. Highly recommended!”—Douglas Preston, #1 bestselling co-creator of the Pendergast novels

“In Cost of Life, Joshua Corin turns a humdrum airline flight into a ride on an F-15 with a smoking engine—fast, terrifying, and oh so fun. I loved the writing. Corin’s whip-smart dialogue crashed me straight into a world of fascinating characters and complicated allegiances. I couldn’t stop reading until the wheels touched down on that final tarmac.”—Rebecca Cantrell, New York Times bestselling author of The World Beneath
 
“Fraught with danger and surprises, Cost of Life is a tale chock-full of action, adventure, and intrigue. Treachery comes from all directions, so consider yourself warned.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lincoln Myth
