Imperial Radch #3: Ancillary Mercy
Signed by the author on the title page. A search of Atheok Station's slums turns up someone who shouldn't exist, who might be an ancillary from a ship that's been hiding for millennia. Meanwhile, a messenger from the alien Presger empire arrives, as does Breq's enemy, the divided and quite possibly insane Anaander Mianaai, who is heavily armed and extremely unhappy with Breq. She could flee with ship and crew, but that would leave Athoek in danger. Breq has a desperate plan. The odds aren't good, but that's never stopped her before.

Four Novels of the 1980s: City Primeval / LaBrava / Glitz / Freaky Deaky
City Primeval: Killer Clement Mansell is back on the Detroit streets, thanks to some nifty courtroom moves by his lawyer, and he's feeling invincible enough to execute a crooked judge on a whim. Homicide detective Raymond Cruz is determined to see that Mansell doesn't slip through the legal system's loopholes a second time. But that means a good cop is going to have to play somewhat fast and loose with the rules.

LaBrava: Joe LaBrava is ensnared in a scheme involving a redneck former policeman, a Cuban hitman moonlighting as a go-go dancer, and a onetime movie queen who lives in a dangerous fantasy world.

Glitz: Teddy Magyk has a serious jones for the Miami cop who put him away, but he wants to hit Vincent Mora where it really hurts before killing him. So when a beautiful Puerto Rican hooker takes a swan dive from an Atlantic City high-rise, and Vincent naturally shows up to investigate the questionable death of his special friend, Teddy figures he's got his prey just where he wants him.

Freaky Deaky: A pair of former 1960s student activists, who learned how to blow things up as part of their political education, have teamed up after a prison stint and are out for a revenge against a former comrade who they suspect was an informant.
