Bobby Dollar #1: The Dirty Streets of Heaven
Bobby is a rough-and-tumble angel who's always done his part in the long cold war between Heaven and Hell. But now he's stepped into the middle of something that's got both sides nervous - an unprecedented number of missing souls. Plus someone has summoned a Babylonian demon that's doing its best to track him down and rip him to pieces. And his opposite number on the case is a sexy she-devil, and Bobby has feelings for her that Heaven definitely does not allow.

Hank Palace #2: Countdown City
There are just 74 days to go before a deadly asteroid collides with Earth. With the Concord police force operating under the auspices of the US Justice Department, detective Hank Palace's days of solving crimes are over, until a woman from his past begs for help finding her missing husband. With society falling to shambles, Hank pieces together what few clues he can, on a search that leads him from a college campus turned anarchist encampment to a crumbling coastal landscape where anti-immigrant militia fend off impact zone refugees.
