Billy Straight by Jonathon Kellerman
A resourceful runaway alone in the wilds of Los Angeles, 12 year old Billy Straight suddenly witnesses a brutal stabbing in Griffith Park. Fleeing into the night, Billy cannot shake the horrific memory of the savage violence, nor the pursuit of a cold-blooded killer. For wherever Billy turns- from Hollywood Blvd. to the boardwalks of Venice- he is haunted by the chuck-chuck sound of a knife sinking into flesh. As LAPD homicide detective Petra Connor desparately searches for the murderer, as the media swarms mercilessly around the story, the vicious madman stalks closer to his prey. Only Petra can save Billy. But it will take all her cunning to uncover a child lost in a fierce urban labyrinth- - where a killer seems right at home. This is a bookray. PM me to join.

No sooner is Bernie inside the apartment when he discovers the item he's to collect is missing, but a dead body isn't. Soon, Bernie is on the run, fleeing a murder charge, and must find out how set him up and why. This is a bookray. PM me if you are interested. IN AUSTRALIA
The Psycho-Technic League by Poul Anderson
In the beginning was WWII. Out of the flames was born a new civilization, a new humanity dedicated to one world rather than to many nations, to one peace rather than to many wars. Naver again on Planet Earth would one group of humans "defend" themselves against another group equally convinced that all their actions were "defensive." Never again on Planet Earth. But cycles repeat themselves endlessly; Earth is on the beginning of the human story. Next comes planet against planet, and then the stars themselves. PM me if you are interested in this bookray.
