Entire towns destroyed. Massive cities underwater. A family desperate to find each other.

Two days after a megaquake and tsunami combine to wreak havoc on the Pacific Northwest, Clint and his daughter are together at last. Instead of retreating to safety, they’re on a one-way mission into the heart of the disaster. Chaos on the streets, impassable routes, and the worst of human nature combine to thwart them at every turn. But Mika’s mom is missing, and they won’t stop until they find her.

Daphne stares out at the water engulfing the financial district, body shivering from the cold, stomach hollow from thirst and hunger. With no food or shelter, she’s forced to attempt an escape. She might drown before she even leaves the parking deck, but she doesn’t have a choice. This time, the only way out is through.

Deluge is book two in the Fault Lines series, an apocalyptic disaster thriller series following ordinary people struggling to survive when a megaquake plunges the Pacific Northwest into chaos.

Finding the truth in a family shattered by lies, betrayal, and murder is a deadly gamble in a twisting novel of suspense by Joe Hart, Wall Street Journal bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author of Or Else.

Family advocate Nora McTavish is settling into her new practice when she receives a call from Tess Grayson, a childhood friend she hasn’t spoken to in years. Tess is entangled in a custody battle with her ex-husband, Neil, a popular professor at a local university. It’s getting vicious—and dangerous.

Rumors are swirling of Neil’s affairs with students, one of whom was found bludgeoned to death. Though the charges against him were dropped, Tess doesn’t want the man anywhere near their nine-year-old daughter. But as Nora digs deeper into the shattered Grayson marriage, she sees more sides to the story than anyone anticipated. Which side can she trust is the question.

Old secrets and lies are beginning to emerge—some from Nora’s own past—and as suspicions begin to shift, another murder draws Nora perilously close to a killer. This time she’s not just betting her reputation on a case. She’s betting her life on it.

When tragedy strikes Reed Montgomery, revenge is the only way forward.

Former Force Recon Marine and covert operator, Reed Montgomery, has finally hung up the rifle. The White House has disowned him. His team has disbanded. He’s now embracing the quiet life while his wife pursues a lifelong dream of becoming a music star.

Life is good. But it’s far too quiet, and for an assassin like Reed, quiet never lasts.

The blasts detonate only yards from the stage, sending red hot shrapnel ripping through the crowd and across the band. As Reed watches in horror, the love of his life topples to the ground in a field of blood—and the carnage has barely begun.

Across America, TV screens are dominated by a smooth-talking man with an Arabic accent. He claims responsibility for the attacks, identifying himself as the head of a brand-new terrorist network who will hold America accountable for her sins.

With the promise of further attacks hanging over the nation, Reed prepares to abandon retirement and hunt his enemies, no matter the cost. But with the White House unwilling to reestablish the Prosecution Force, Reed is pushed to act alone.

He assembles his own team. Loads his own weapons. And will carry this fight to the ends of the earth.

The Prosecution Force has gone rogue.

“Rock-solid characters, buzz-saw action and backstories deserving of books of their own. Amazing…”

A new mission. An old rival. The powerful secret that binds them.

Since the U.S. collapsed into chaos, Conor Maguire has fought to keep his family and friends safe. He’s turned away the attackers who threatened their community, living off the spoils of theft and murder. Fortunately, Conor is no stranger to fighting. In fact, it’s his job. He’s an old-school assassin with an arsenal of wicked tricks up his sleeve.

When Conor is called back to work for the first time since the terror attacks, he learns that business is good. With no media and no law, anyone with a score to settle is working hard to take out their enemies before order is restored. A high-end assassin with an impressive resume can set their own price.

When Conor and his partner reach their target, they find that all is not as it seems. One small job—killing a shady financier—quickly becomes something larger. However, this discovery will pale in comparison to the biggest revelation of this mission—a secret that will change Conor’s life forever.
