Patrick McLanahan is back-and this time he faces his most difficult challenge. He must pull together a team of aggressive, maverick, young pilots to face a world on the brink of massive nuclear conflict. It begins with a joint US-Japanese-South Korean mock bombing raid. But the South Korean fighter pilots don't stick to the script. Instead they race across the border into North Korea to support a massive people's revolt against the Communists.
In Colorado, history professor Krista Mueller awaits news of her mother's death. It has been more than a decade since Alzheimer's disease first claimed a part of Charlotte Mueller's mind and memories. But Krista cannot forget the pain of her childhood. Nor can she face the dying woman who has-despite Krista's desperate attempts to gain her love-always been far beyond her daughter's reach.
Then a call from New Mexico launches Krista on a dramatic journey of discovery-a journey that helps her being to finally understand her estranged mother and allow the lost love of her youth back into her life. But Krista struggles to seize her final opportunity for forgiveness-and love-even when she knows that such a step is not for her mother's sake any longer but for her own.

The office of the Public Defender is not known as a training ground for bright young litigators. Clay Carter has been there too long, and, like most of his colleagues, dreams of a better job in a real firm. When he reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, he assumes it is just another of the many senseless murders that hit DC every week.
As he digs into the background of his client, Clay stumbles on a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the larges pharmaceutical companies in the world and looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life-that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts.
