Abstract:

The first three crime thrillers in an award-winning series starring a tough Florida PI--from the New York Times-bestselling author of Single White Female. New York Times- and USA Today-bestselling author John Lutz has been hailed as "a major talent" by John Lescroart and "one of the masters" by Ridley Pearson. "Lutz offers up a heart-pounding roller coaster" (Jeffery Deaver) in his thrillers and "knows how to make you shiver" (Harlan Coben). "The Carver series is the finest work yet by this prolific author" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). After a criminal's bullet shattered not only his knee but also his career as an Orlando cop and his marriage, Fred Carver starts over as a private detective. In this award-winning ten-book series, Lutz's "dogged Carver is a believably heroic guy, tough, scarred and able to exhibit fear and courage at the same time" (Publishers Weekly). Tropical Heat: The police think Willis Davis committed suicide, but beautiful real-estate broker Edwina Talbot is convinced her missing lover is alive and hires Carver to find him. Following a twisted trail from luxurious beach resorts to the swamps of the Everglades, Carver runs afoul of violent Cubans, a DEA agent, and assorted criminals, all while falling hard for his lovely client. "Lutz has never written leaner prose, and the novel's ending, especially the last sentence, is a delight."--USA Today. Scorcher: When Carver's young son becomes the third victim of a serial killer with a homemade flamethrower, the tortured private eye won't rest until he's avenged the boy's death. "The prose is lean, the action fast-paced, the suspense unrelenting ... superior entertainment."--The San Diego Union. Kiss: After his elderly uncle's suspicious death at Sunhaven Retirement Home, Lt. Alfonso Desoto hires Carver to find out what's going on behind the closed doors of the facility. Soon he's tangling with everyone from a rough head nurse to a brutally sadistic thug. Winner of the Shamus Award. "The grip on the reader is relentless until the final, entirely unforeseen shocker rings down the curtain on Lutz's best novel so far."--Publishers Weekly.
