The Unforgiven is out NOW!

August 2014

The latest in the Jacob Striker series by Sean Slater is out now!

It is late at night when Detective Jacob Striker receives a call to investigate a disturbance at a bus depot in downtown Vancouver. On arrival, he discovers a bus in flames and the fire department battling to control the blaze. When they finally put the fire out, Striker makes a terrifying discovery. Inside is the body of a woman he once worked with, a police officer from the force.

It looks as though she has been lured in and ambushed. Striker vows to avenge the death of his friend and colleague by bringing her murderer to justice, and to start, he'll have to take over the file she was investigating that brought her to this part of the city.

But the more Striker tries to look into the case, the more he finds doors closed in his face - both among the police and outside. It soon becomes apparent that Jazz's investigations were upsetting some influential people, and Striker is putting himself in grave danger as he battles through the layers of intrigue and lies surrounding the case

The truth lies behind the mask ...

It's every cop's worst nightmare. Especially when his daughter's in the line of fire.

In his first hour back from a six-month leave of absence, Detective Jacob Striker's day quickly turns into a nightmare. He is barely on scene five minutes at his daughter's high school when he encounters an Active Shooter situation. Three men wearing hockey masks - Black, White, and Red - have stormed the school with firearms and are killing indiscriminately. Striker takes immediate action. Within minutes two of the gunmen are dead, and Striker is close to ending the violence. But then the last shooter does something unexpected. He runs up to his fallen comrade, racks the shotgun, and unloads five rounds. And before Striker can react the gunman escapes.

Against the clock, Striker investigates the killings for which there is no known motive and no known suspect. Soon his investigation takes him to darker places, and he realizes that not everything at Saint Patrick's High is as it seems. The closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous his world becomes. Until Striker himself is in the line of fire. And the violence follows him home.

Sean Slater may be a real-life Vancouver cop, but he is also a first-rate thriller writer and a star in the making. Were truly delighted to have him on our list. Suzanne Baboneau, Publishing Director, Simon & Schuster UK

The Guilty

The first explosion kills the toymaker.

The second bomb takes down the city's most successful realtor.

Two are dead. One is wounded. But still no suspect.

It's clear to Homicide Detective Jacob Striker and his partner Felicia Santos that the two incidents are linked. But with no demands being made by the bomber, and no known connection between the victims, uncovering the motive seems impossible.

Then Detective Harry Eckhart disappears, taking with him the lone survivor. His actions make no sense, and they force Striker to redirect his focus onto his fellow cops. It is an investigation Striker would prefer to avoid, but cannot - for the bomber is about to strike again.

And this time, it's much closer to home...

Striker is back!
