Niceville by Carsten Stroud( Book )

40 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A boy literally disappears from Main Street. A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. An audacious bank robbery goes seriously wrong: four cops are gunned down; a TV news helicopter is shot and spins crazily out of the sky, triggering a disastrous cascade of events that ricochet across twenty different lives over the course of just thirty-six hours. Nick Kavanaugh, a cop with a dark side, investigates. Soon he and his wife, Kate, a distinguished lawyer from an old Niceville family, find themselves struggling to make sense not only of the disappearance and the robbery but also of a shadow world, where time has a different rhythm and where justice is elusive. Compulsively readable, and populated with characters who leap off the page, Niceville will draw you in, excite you, amaze you, horrify you, and, when it finally lets you go, make you sorry you have to leave
The homecoming by Carsten Stroud( Book )

28 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Somewhere in the American South, there is a town where something is very, very wrong. A place where malicious men may die, but malice ... never. When Carsten Stroud's previous novel, Niceville, was published, Elmore Leonard wrote: "I hope Mr. Stroud, having had so much fun writing Niceville, listening to his people give him terrific dialogue, is writing a sequel or another one like it." We give you The Homecoming. Kate and Nick Kavanaugh (lawyer and cop respectively) take in young Rainey Teague, whose parents have died under mysterious circumstances. Rainey is a handful. Well, actually, Rainey is turning out to be someone--or something--downright scary: a shape-shifting time-bending little boy who will have to resist being taken over by "Nothing." Will Kate and Nick be able to save him? Will the mirror they have kept up in the attic ultimately be their downfall? When more disappearances start to happen, where do they turn? No one can explain what is happening, but everyone knows that their sleepy, peaceful town, Niceville, is turning out to be anything but nice."--

The reckoning by Carsten Stroud( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the sun tops a nearby mountain, Tallulah's Wall, and bathes the town in soft Southern light, Niceville exudes an almost unearthly beauty. But there's a reason why Native American tribes avoided the place: An absence, "Nothing," inhabits the air and the depthless crater atop the ancient peak, bending time and the desires of a chosen few to hear shadowy ends. As the Reckoning begins, Detective Nick Kavanaugh and his wife, Kate, a family lawyer, have accepted that reality in Niceville is not normal. Seemingly they've fought Nothing to a draw. But now a buzzing emerges in the heads of some perfectly regular folks. The boundaries between worlds are dissolving. And Nothing isn't finished

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A police pursuit kicks Sergeant Jack Redding of the Florida Highway Patrol and his trainee, Julie Karras, into a shoot-out that ends with one girl dead and another in cuffs, and the driver of the SUV fleeing into the Intracoastal Waterway. Redding stays on the hunt, driven by the trace memory that he knows that running woman--and he does, because his grandfather, a cop in Jacksonville, was hunting the same woman in 1957. Redding and his partner, Pandora Jansson, chase a seductive serial killer who can ride The Shimmer across decades. The pursuit cuts from modern-day Jacksonville to Mafia-ruled St. Augustine in 1957, then to the French Quarter of New Orleans in 1914"--

Members of the oldest law enforcement agency in the country, the U.S. Marshals were once regarded as little more than security guards. Now they're on the frontlines of law enforcement. Their mission, made famous in the 1993 film The Fugitive, is to take down hard-core felons. In Deadly Force, Carsten Stroud leads us deep into their sometimes savage, sometimes darkly humorous world. Luke Zitto was stagnating in his job with the Witness Protection Program when his wife left him for one of the white-collar felons he was protecting. Reassignment to Fugitive Operations gave Luke a new beat on some of the country's meanest streets - it gave him his war
