Counterterrorism Specialist Pepper McCallan and Agent Brent Cahill are called upon by President Cecil Scott to investigate a terrorist attack by a group identifying itself as Victus. Pepper and Brent fend off personal assassination attempts while investigating a pestilence of sharpshooter insects on California's grapevines, causing panic among farmers. The first bioterrorism war on American soil has begun. President Scott receives a blackmail letter from Victus, threatening to destroy more of America's natural resources unless he agrees to supply free food to famished nations. The President desperately needs Pepper and Brent to solve who is behind Victus before they strike again. Brent's brother, Reed Cahill, fires up a blazing hot romance with Blaire Starr, a young, powerful financier in Minneapolis. Reed and Blaire attempt to keep their love affair a secret from family members in Minneapolis, but Reed needs to return to his winery in Australia. Can he convince Blaire to leave her lucrative, high powered job in Minneapolis to join him at Margaret River Winery? Meanwhile, a baby is born with 'swastika tattoos' on his eyelids, just like his parents had inked on their own eyelids, inciting nationwide scrutiny and unrest as fringe groups rally and condemn. While the public is fascinated with the baby's tattoos, Brent and Pepper also are confronted with a troubling tattoo as they try to identify Victus. "Victus" is Part I of the two-part Margaret River Winery story. Part II takes place in Australia and will be released in early 2016.

After proving herself in the field during the siege on America by the Victus terror organization, a shaken, but determined Pepper McCallan joins the upper ranks of the U.S. Counterterrorism Agency to track down Lilly Wang. Driven to avenge her ten-year-old son’s murder at the hands of terrorists, Pepper makes fighting in the combat ring and shooting assault rifles look easy. Beneath her polished veneer, however, her emotions are waging a war against her new identity as she struggles with remorse for the lives she’s taken in battle. While in Boston, her emotional state leaves her vulnerable to romantic overtures by her boss. Located in picturesque Western Australia, and well-funded by embezzlement from the Malaysian government, Victus sets out to use insect drones in a novel and devastating way. Lilly Wang is at the center of Victus, believing her analytical skills are valued by its leader, but quickly discovers she must navigate his deadly whims to stay alive. President Cecil Scott’s private life is exposed while he simultaneously battles terrorism and his soon-to-be ex-wife. His well-heeled D.C. divorce attorney, Annie Preston, finds herself in a deadly predicament with underworld elements when lovers’ identities are at risk of being revealed.

Alexi Venice's second novel, "Svea's Sins," is a thriller about a 2018 terrorist plot against the United States with nerve gas and drones, perpetuated by a beautiful Swedish woman who partners with the Russian President Vadik Volkov. Venice amps up the action and sophistication in her second novel featuring the brilliant and broken Pepper McCallan, a consultant to the U.S. Counterterrorism Agency. Venice swiftly drives a complex plot that traverses the world, using science and technology that are easily within reach, leveraging the absence of drone regulation. In "Svea's Sins," Pepper McCallan doesn't expect to be needed so urgently by Brent Cahill while she and her husband Bill are island-hopping in the Caribbean in the fall of 2018. But Brent discovers he needs Pepper's help to thwart a terrorist plot on America that incorporates nerve gas, drones and sexual liaisons between world leaders. Venice stakes out her style by weaving romance into thriller terror plots. The reader gets to know Brent Cahill's character as he builds a relationship with the love of his life, Jackie Starr, who is a high-powered CrossFit trainer, by taking her on a vacation to the island of St. Martin. Furthering their counterterrorism success, Brent Cahill and Pepper McCallan unnerve the stunning Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Svea Lovgren, by confronting her at a formal ball in Stockholm. Brent and Pepper consider Svea's twisted motives by analyzing her sexual rendezvous with Russian President Vadik Volkov. As Pepper is drawn deeper into clandestine travel, her husband, Bill McCallan, resumes his career as an orthopedic surgeon at Southview Hospital in Minneapolis. Bill unexpectedly finds himself at the center of a large scale disaster at Southview Hospital that has Svea Lovgren's handprints on it. In this riveting second novel, Pepper continues to enhance her reputation in the Counterterrorism Agency with the President of the United States in a not-so-distant future that proves to be as sinister as it is sentimental. Alexi Venice hits her stride with hotter romance and bioterrorism plots in the third Pepper McCallan novel, "Victus, Part I of Margaret River Winery." It will be available in Winter 2015.

JerJer is anxious to dominate humanity and prove that his philosophy of natural order is superior. Educated at the finest universities, JerJer launches an insidious campaign for President of the United States.

Raised by her father and an aborigine caretaker, Starr strives to live a normal life, riding her loyal appaloosa, tending to her vineyards and tasting romance with a steadfast Australian man. As her supernatural talents intensify, however, messages from the aborigine Spirit Realm and God combine to animate constellations, depicting the prophecy that was spoken to Starr's father on the night of her birth.

From a writer “whose genre-jumping refusal to be pinned down [makes him] an exemplar of our era” (NPR), a new book that confirms his power to astound readers. As a child Geoff Dyer spent long hours making and blotchily painting model fighter planes. So the adult Dyer jumped at the chance of a residency aboard an aircraft carrier. Another Great Day at Sea chronicles Dyer’s experiences on the USS George H.W. Bush as he navigates the routines and protocols of “carrier-world,” from the elaborate choreography of the flight deck through miles of walkways and hatches to kitchens serving meals for a crew of five thousand to the deafening complexity of catapult and arresting gear. Meeting the Captain, the F-18 pilots and the dentists, experiencing everything from a man-overboard alert to the Steel Beach Party, Dyer guides us through the most AIE (acronym intensive environment) imaginable. A lanky Englishman (could he really be both the tallest and the oldest person on the ship?) in a deeply American world, with its constant exhortations to improve, to do better, Dyer brilliantly records the daily life on board the ship, revealing it to be a prism for understanding a society where discipline and conformity, dedication and optimism, become forms of self-expression. In the process it becomes clear why Geoff Dyer has been widely praised as one of the most original—and funniest—voices in literature. Another Great Day at Sea is the definitive work of an author whose books defy definition. From the Hardcover edition.
