shovel ready adam sternberghShovel Ready
By Adam Sternbergh

The futuristic hardboiled noir that Lauren Beukes calls “sharp as a paper-cut” about a garbage man turned kill-for-hire. Spademan used to be a garbage man. That was before the dirty bomb hit Times Square, before his wife was killed, and before the city became a blown-out shell of its former self. Now he’s a hitman.

By Chevy Stevens

They said she was a murderer. They said she killed her sister. But they lied. As a teenager, Toni Murphy had a life full of typical adolescent complications: a boyfriend she adored, a younger sister she couldn’t relate to, a strained relationship with her parents. Things weren’t easy, but Toni could never have predicted how horrific they would become until her younger sister was brutally murdered one summer night.

By Taylor Stevens

Vanessa Michael Munroe, chameleon and information hunter, has a reputation for getting things done—often dangerous and not quite legal things. The adrenaline-fueled work has left her with blood on her hands and a soul stained with guilt. Munroe has fled to Djibouti, Africa, where she finds stillness—until her boss pressures her to join his team as an armed transit guard on a ship bound for Kenya.

    Taylor, I am confused about the motivation of Michael in The Catch. Why is she helping Amber?
