USA Book 1
New York. Contemporary fiction. It seems like just another morning. Around the world, people wake up, check the news, open the front door. On every doorstep is a box. Inside that box is the exact number of years a person has left to live. Whether they open it or hide it under their bed, each person must learn to live in this new world: a couple who thought they didn't have to rush their life together, a doctor who cannot save himself from his own fate, best friends whose dreams are forever entwined, and a politician whose box becomes the powder keg that ultimately changes everything.

USA Book 3
Summer in Boston. The week before Independence Day. A city steeped in history and racial strife. A city about to be ripped apart by an unspeakable scandal and a raging gang war. Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro are tough PIs who know the blue-collar neighbourhoods and ghettos of Boston's Dorchester section as only natives can. Working out of an old church belfry, the pair take on a seemingly simple assignment for a prominent politician: uncover the whereabouts of Jenna Angeline, a cleaning woman who has allegedly stolen confidential Statehouse documents. But finding Jenna proves easy compared to staying alive. The investigation escalates, uncovering a web of corruption extending from bombed-out ghetto streets to the highest levels of state government.

USA Book 4
Massachusetts, Los Angeles, California. When Sam catches sight of Sadie at a crowded train station one morning he is catapulted straight back to childhood, and the hours they spent immersed playing games. Their spark is instantly reignited, and sets off a creative collaboration that will make them superstars. It is the 90s and anything is possible. What comes next is a decade-long tale of friendship and rivalry, fame and art, betrayal and tragedy, perfect worlds and imperfect ones. And, above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.

USA Book 5
Virginia. Demon's birth begins with him looking 'like a little blue prizefighter'. For the life ahead of him he would need all of that fighting spirit, along with buckets of charm, a quick wit and some unexpected talents, legal and otherwise. In the southern Appalachian mountains, poverty and addiction aren't ideas. They're as natural as the grass grows. For Demon, born on the wrong side of luck, the affection and safety he craves is as remote as the ocean he dreams of seeing one day. The wonder is in how far he's willing to travel to try and get there.
