Releases for the week of February 9th include MEAN STREAK by Sandra Brown, a heart-pounding story of survival that takes the age-old question "Does the end justify the means?" and turns it on its head; A KING'S RANSOM, Sharon Kay Penman's long-anticipated sequel to LIONHEART that tells the vivid and heart-wrenching story of the last event-filled years in the life of Richard I of England, Coeur de Lion; and DARK INVASION, Howard Blum’s gritty, true-life tale of German espionage and terror on American soil during World War I, and the NYPD Inspector who helped uncover the plot --- the basis for the film to be produced by and starring Bradley Cooper.

On an online dating site, NYPD Detective Kat Donovan finds the profile of her ex-fiancé Jeff, the man who shattered her heart and who she hasn’t seen in 18 years. Kat feels a spark, wondering if this might be the moment when past tragedies recede and a new world opens up to her. But when she reaches out to the man in the profile, her reawakened hope quickly darkens into suspicion and then terror as an unspeakable conspiracy comes to light.
