Ripped from the headlines, this action-packed high seas adventure tracks Somali Pirates as they terrorize the coastal waters of the lawless East African republic, turning the Indian Ocean into a ferocious battleground. For the past three years, these heavily-armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, especially oil tankers, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. Pirating out of the tiny Somalian village of Haradheere has become a very lucrative, dangerous business, so much so that the village has its own Stock Exchange with a reputed $78 million in cash, all in crisp $100 bills, in the town vault. And each time an owner pays big for the return of their ship, the pirates immediately strike again, enraging the Pentagon more and more by the day. That is, until the "Somali Marines" make a big mistake, seizing at gun point two United States ships and demanding a $15 million ransom for their return. Hero Mack Bedford, previously encountered in "Diamondhead and Intercept", is deployed to SEAL Team 10 to form "The Delta Platoon". His objective: obliterate the Somali Marines in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all.

Bestseller Picoult (My Sister's Keeper) takes on another contemporary hot-button issue in her brilliantly told new thriller, about a high school shooting. Peter Houghton, an alienated teen who has been bullied for years by the popular crowd, brings weapons to his high school in Sterling, N.H., one day and opens fire, killing 10 people. Flashbacks reveal how bullying caused Peter to retreat into a world of violent computer games. Alex Cormier, the judge assigned to Peter's case, tries to maintain her objectivity as she struggles to understand her daughter, Josie, one of the surviving witnesses of the shooting. The author's insights into her characters' deep-seated emotions brings this ripped-from-the-headlines read chillingly alive.
