  • Bruce Lee: The Dragon Rises

    Bruce Lee never died. And he hasn't aged. But, he has no idea who he is, what's happened in the world in the past 40+ years, or why so many "thugs" want a piece of him. With the help of a fly BFF from the '70s – Joe Toomey, P.I. – and a pair of precocious Teens, Bruce will piece together a mystery more insidious than ever imagined, and find himself forced to do battle with both an enigmatic Villain and his very own conscience. In other words, the Dragon rises... and "walks on" once more! Read More

As Charli and Lucy delve deeper into the mystery, they begin to discover the extraordinary measures their father has taken - some clever, some desperate - to keep an entire people hidden in an increasingly treacherous world. For Charlie and Lucy, unmasking their sister's executioner will mean confronting their own blood-drenched legacy. Read More

  • The Living Finger

    When well-meaning Jason discovers a disembodied finger that appears to "alive," it quickly becomes the sole focus of his life. He names the digit "Wendy," learns to communicate with it via "tap code," and discovers that the one thing Wendy wants more than anything else is a living, breathing human body to attach to. But, as soon as Jason helps Wendy secure an unwitting "host," problems arise. Soon, Jason has collected a bathtub full of corpses, a rightly suspicious sister, and a best friend hellbent on selling Wendy to the highest bidder. Even worse, Jason is beginning to realize that he may have acted a bit rashly, especially with Wendy proudly displaying an unhealthy fascination with knives. Is there any way for Jason to set things right without becoming another casualty? Read More

  • Dead Man's Party

    In the assassin trade, a Dead Man's Party is part Viking funeral, part Irish wake, a twisted way for your murderous peers to either honor your memory or settle a score. Each of the five professional killers who participate have 30 days to collect the bounty on your head, adding your distinguished name to his or her resume. And the "contract" is wholly irrevocable. For the world's most feared executioner - known only as Ghost - arranging such a Party for himself is a last resort, a way to go out on his own terms and at the top of his game. Read More
