Phyllis Wong, a clever and resourceful young magician and amateur sleuth, finds herself embroiled in a mystery nearly as old as time when she discovers one of her great-grandfather's conjuring secrets! Someone has sold a number of incredibly valuable first editions of Shakespeare's collected plays at the antique auction house The House of Wendlebury and Chief Inspector Inglis suspects foul play. These rare First Folios are in mint condition, but are not forgeries. Where on earth could they have come from? Has a crime been committed? Luckily, Phyllis Wong is on the case. Having recently discovered the secret of Transiting, she travels back to Shakespeare's day to find out who is responsible. But when a famously lost Shakespearean play is scheduled to be auctioned back in the 21st Century, Phyllis suspects villainy. How can she convince Chief Inspector Inglis what's going on? Surely this is something that has to be seen to be believed? Phyllis Wong, that keen young magician with a talent for sleuthing and getting to the bottom of the strangest mysteries, is back!

In Paradise, nothing is what it seems... THE FORGOTTEN Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case-but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida. A picture-perfect town on Florida's Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt's death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller's father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be. What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt's death was no accident . . . and that the palm trees and sandy beaches of Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.
