Summary
"Having survived the Nightmare Feast, Austin Lively is living the dream. He has returned to Hollywood and his movie career is in full swing. His new script, Another Kingdom, has been unexpectedly purchased by a top producer at an enormous price. Beautiful women flock to his bed, movie stars court his attention, and the powers-that-be are predicting stardom. His only problems: a recurring vision of a magical landscape he can't quite remember, and a giant mouse who seems to be following him-a giant mouse with a woman's face. After his beloved Jane Janeway is accused of murder, Austin begins to realize that this dream he's living is a nightmare in disguise. He is caught in the coils of a terrible magic, and the only way he can save his soul is to give up his success, re-enter the Eleven Lands, and find the Emperor Anastasius so he can restore Queen Elinda to her throne. But when he arrives at the emperor's encampment, he is shocked to find Anastasius dead. With a weird hitman on his trail in Los Angeles, he must break Jane out of prison before a murder plot takes her life. In the Eleven Lands, he must follow the Emperor into hell itself where he will face the most shocking revelation of all"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
From the creator of HBO's Bored to Death, a deliciously noir novel about idiosyncratic private detective Happy Doll and his quest to help a dying friend in a sun-blinded Los Angeles as "quirky, edgy, charming, funny and serious" as its protagonist (Lee Child). Happy Doll is a charming, if occasionally inexpert, private detective living just one sheer cliff drop beneath the Hollywood sign with his beloved half-Chihuahua half-Terrier, George. A veteran of both the Navy and LAPD, Doll supplements his meager income as a P.I. by working through the night at a local Thai spa that offers its clients a number of special services. Armed with his sixteen-inch steel telescopic baton, biting dry humor, and just a bit of a hero complex, the ex-cop sets out to protect the women who work there from clients who have trouble understanding the word "no." Doll gets by just fine following his two basic rules: bark loudly and act first. But when things get out-of-hand with one particularly violent patron, even he finds himself wildly out of his depth, and then things take an even more dangerous twist when an old friend from his days as a cop shows up at his door with a bullet in his gut. A Man Named Doll is more than just a fascinating introduction to one truly singular character, it is a highly addictive and completely unpredictable joyride through the sensuous and violent streets of LA.

Summary
"The nightmare descends on a Tuesday. A routine welfare check on an older married couple turns into something out of a horror movie when their bodies are discovered mutilated inside their house. After two other couples die, it becomes clear that there's a serial killer stalking Hollywood. Dubbed the 'Eastside Creeper', the murderer camps out in crawl spaces of his victims' homes, sometimes for days, before killing them. And then, like smoke, he vanishes. Detective Tully Jarsdel is intrigued by the Eastside Creeper. His methods are grotesque, his path unpredictable. And as the murders become more gruesome and the clues more inscrutable, Jarsdel's background in academia and willingness to look beneath the surface might be the only tools the LAPD has to stop the bloodshed."-- Provided by publisher.
