Scout knew she only had a handful of days left before she went Gray, changing into a creature that was no longer human. After witnessing the horror of her friends and family going Gray, she was devastated when her own inevitable transformation began. But when that didn't happen, Scout realized she was gaining powers that not only insured her survival, but allowed her to cross the flooded wasteland in search of her brother.

Together they must find a cure to prevent everyone they love from turning into monsters. But they will need help, and whether it comes from the brilliant, enigmatic boy named Google, or from the mysterious man who somehow resisted going Gray, she knows one thing for sure: she is humanity's last hope.

The Storm struck five years ago as a monstrous waterfall pounding the world. Entire cities vanished underwater, lakes grew and merged into oceans. Glaciers shrank and mountains melted.


People changed…

Grays, vicious creatures that were once human, know only hunger. They hunt Scout and her group of friends mercilessly. Even more terrifying is that Scout and everyone else still alive knows that their own transformation is inevitable.

When Scout’s change begins, she realizes that hers is different, and that the burden of humanity’s survival is now on her shoulders. To save herself and everyone she loves, she must find a cure. If she dies, our world dies with her.

Frankie Brubaker, the woman Ari Van Owen loves but can never have, has been abducted from the hospital where she works. There’s no ransom note, and no contact from the kidnappers. With his past experience working for the FBI, this type of investigation is right up Van Owen’s alley. In no time he uncovers clues that point to Frankie being held outside of the country, somewhere in the Amazon Jungle. But what Van Owen can’t determine is why.

A few days later, a flight from Brazil crashes near Louisville when the pilot and first officer suffer from total paralysis en route. Just days after that, a popular South American baseball player is found dead in Cincinnati after succumbing to the same mysterious ailment. The FBI suspects the two high profile cases may be related, and they want Van Owen to do what he does best and connect the dots.

The deeper Ari digs, the more it appears that Frankie’s abduction is somehow linked to both the plane crash and the dead athlete. But before he can put the pieces together, the kidnappers are back – only this time they’ve targeted Van Owen, and their intentions are clear: they’ll either take him, or they’ll take him out.

With its action, plot twists, and romance, David Kettlehake’s second novel, Fever, will keep you captivated from the first page to the exciting, unexpected conclusion.


"Rolland Schmidt was a good man at heart, but even good people make mistakes. Some mistakes are gone and forgotten in an instant, while others stick with you for life - no matter how short that life may be."

When Marcus Schmidt learns his estranged brother is missing he quickly returns to the Midwest, determined to find him. What he discovers instead is a side of Rolland that he never knew, someone deeply involved in a Mexican drug war that threatens to explode into a blood bath across the Yucatan Peninsula.

Now Marcus must not only find Rolland but stop the impending carnage as well. Searching for answers he travels to Mexico and the only true family he has. But the war is much closer to him than he suspects, and he quickly finds that no one is above suspicion – not even the family he loves.

From California to the Midwest to the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá, Marcus quickly learns that he must watch his back…or he’ll be the next victim in Mexico’s brutal drug war.

With its intense action and romance Straw Man is guaranteed to keep you riveted to the surprising end.
