Rob Thurman - Madhouse
My brother had spent a lifetime-mine, at least-telling me that I was normal, that I wasn't a monster. With his help, I'd finally realized that as long as I could remain who I was, I could survive what I was. It was only bad genes.... Half-human Cal Leandros and his brother, Niko, aren't exactly prospering with their preternatural detective agency. Who could have guessed that business would dry up in New York City, where vampires, trolls, and other creepy crawlies are all over the place? But now there's a new arrival in the Big Apple. A malevolent evil with ancient powers, dead set on making history with an orgy of blood and murder, is picking off humans like sheep. And for Cal and Niko, this is one paycheck they're going to have to earn... if they live long enough to collect it.
Rob Thurman - Deathwish
How I felt the mental stirrings of a bloodthirsty heritage when I passed through the gray light wasn't my favorite topic.... The Auphe nature wasn't mine. I wouldn't let it be. And if I said that to myself over and over and sprinkled around enough frigging fairy dust, maybe it would be true. Half-human Cal Leandros and his brother, Niko, are barely getting by with their preternatural detective agency when the vampire Seamus hires them. He's being followed, and he wants to know by whom. But the Leandros brothers have to do more than they had planned when Seamus turns up dead (or un-undead). Worse still is the return of Cal's nightmarish family' the Auphe. The last time Cal faced them, the Auphe were almost wiped out. Now they want revenge. Cal knows that before the Auphe get to him, they will try to destroy everything and everyone he holds dear. Because for the Auphe, Cal's pain is a pleasure. And they're feeling good.
Rob Thurman - All Seeing Eye
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Cal Leandros novels comes a bold new supernatural thriller. Picking up a small pink shoe from the grass forever changed young Jackson Lee’s life. Not only did its presence mean that his sister Tessa was dead—murdered and stuffed in the deep, black water of a narrow well—but the shoe itself told him so. Tessa’s death triggers an even more horrific family massacre that, combined with this new talent he neither wants nor can handle, throws Jack’s life into a tailspin. The years quickly take him from state homes to the streets to grifting in a seedy carnival, until he finally becomes the cynical All Seeing Eye, psychic-for-hire. At last, Jackson has left his troubled past behind him and found a semblance of peace. That is, until the government blackmails him. Helping the military contain the aftermath of a bizarre experiment gone violently wrong, everything Jackson knows about himself will change just as suddenly as it did with his little sister’s shoe.
Rob Thurman - Slashback
_I stopped and let them circle me, first because it was intriguing and, second, because, honestly, what could they do? Only knives, but all armed, and that made them even more interesting. Interesting. Fun._ _Playtime…_ Taking on bloodthirsty supernatural monsters is how Caliban and Niko Leandros make a living. But years ago—before they became a force to be reckoned with—the brothers were almost victims of a very human serial killer. Almost. Unfortunately for them, that particular depraved killer was working as apprentice to a creature far more malevolent—the legendary Spring-heeled Jack. He’s just hit town. He hasn’t forgotten what the Leandros brothers did to his murderous protégé. He hasn’t forgotten what they owe him. And now they are going to pay…and pay…and pay.…
Rob Thurman - Chimera
From Rob Thurman, national bestselling author of the Cal Leandros Novels, comes a sci-fi thriller that questions what makes us human, what makes us unique … …And what makes us kill. Ten years ago, Stefan Korsak's younger brother was kidnapped. No one knew who took Lukas, or why. He was simply gone. But not a day has passed that Stefan hasn't thought about him. As a rising figure in the Russian mafia, he has finally found him. But when he rescues Lukas, he must confront a terrible truth--his brother is no longer his brother. He is a killer. Trained, brainwashed, and genetically transformed into a flesh-and-blood machine with only one purpose--assassination. Now, those who created him…will do anything to reclaim him. And the closer Stefan grows to his brother, the more he realizes that saving Lukas may be easier than surviving him…
Rob Thurman - Basilisk
While CHIMERA was told from Stefan’s point-of-view, BASILISK is told from Michael’s. I wanted to see him discover what it’s like to be a genuine person…not a kid raised to be an assassin in the Institute. It’s a very different POV as Stefan is an ex-Russian mafioso and Michael, Stefan’s kidnapped brother, is a trained (but utterly reluctant) assassin with no knowledge he can remember of the outside world. This is two and a half years later when Michael and Stefan have settled in a small town, hiding from the Mafiya and the Institute and Michael thinks that as a genius and trained killer (he keeps the trained part and discards the killer portion completely) that he is adjusting very well to the world. Stefan, on the other hand, might disagree.
Rob Thurman - Nightlife
In New York, there’s a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side. Of course, most humans are oblivious to this, but Cal Leandros is only half-human. His father’s dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares-and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal. He and his half-brother Niko have managed to stay a step ahead for three years, but now Cal’s dad has found them again… …And Cal is about to learn why they want him.
Rob Thurman - Moonshine
I was born a monster. Although truthfully, I was only half monster. My mother was human; my father was something... else. Half monster or whole, in the end it didn't matter. I had my weaknesses, same as anyone else. And I was facing one of them now. After saving the world from his fiendish father's side of the family, Cal Leandros and his stalwart half brother, Niko, have settled down with a new apartment and a new gig-bodyguard and detective work. And in New York City, where preternatural beings stalk the streets just like normal folk, business is good. Their latest case has them going undercover for the Kin, the werewolf Mafia. A low-level Kin boss thinks a rival is setting him up for a fall, and wants proof. The place to start is the back room of Moonshine, a gambling club for non-humans. Cal thinks it's a simple in-and-out job. But Cal is very, very wrong. Cal and Niko are being set up themselves-and the people behind it have bites much worse than their barks...
Rob Thurman - Blackout
I was alone, and I was lost. I didn’t know where I was; I didn’t know who I was. It doesn’t get more lost than that. Knowing what I knew and not knowing anything else at all, why would I want to be in the darkness where monsters hide? Because killers hide there, too… Half-human Cal Leandros has always walked a bloody line between keeping his mortal soul free and clear (sort of) and unleashing the horror of his otherworldly heritage. The one thing that’s always saved him is the memory of his brother, Niko, his friends, and those he loves. Until now. Cal wakes up on a beach littered with the recently slaughtered remains of a variety of hideous creatures that were obviously looking for trouble. The fact that he was the one doing the slaughtering doesn’t bother him. The fact that he feels like a natural-born killer doesn’t either. What bothers him is that Cal doesn’t remember Cal anymore… And he’s not sure he cares.

Rob Thurman - Roadkill

Now, as their P.I. business teeters on in-solvency,guess who shows up with a job? Niko could have died because of her. I don't forget things like that... not ever. I wanted a little payback for those she'd cheated in the past. For those she'd cheat in the future. For what she'd allowed to happen to my brother. For good old fashion revenge. The gypsy crone wants them to find a stolen coffin. Cal would rather help her into one, but this coffin contains an evil known as the Plague of the World---and it makes the Black Death seem like a fond memory. But the thief has already left town, so the Leandros brothers are going on the road. And if they're very, very lucky, there might even be a return trip...

Rob Thurman - Éjvilág
Szörnyek járnak közöttünk. Mindig is itt voltak és itt is lesznek mindörökké. Azóta tisztában vagyok ezzel, amióta az eszemet tudom, ahogy azzal is,hogy én is egy vagyok közülük... Részben, legalábbis. Üdv New Yorkban! Ahol egy troll lakik a Brooklyn híd alatt, egy kobold a Central Parkban, és egy gyönyörű vámpír az Upper East Side egyik manzárdjában – és ez csupán a kezdet. Persze a legtöbb halandó ember tökéletesen vak marad a természetfelettiek éjszakai életére, de Cal Leandros csak félig ember. Apja sötét vérvonala rémmesékbe illő – és most ő és az egész másvilági fajtája Cal nyomában lohol. Vajon miért? Cal eddig nem igazán akart annyi ideig egy helyben maradni, hogy megtudja a választ. Féltestvérével együtt idáig sikerült egy lépéssel az üldözőik előtt maradniuk, de most Cal apja ismét rájuk bukkant. Cal számára most végre kiderül, hogy mit akarnak, mit akartak tőle mindig is. Ő a kulcsa ördögi tervüknek, hogy a Földön elszabadítsák a Poklot. Cal életének legkeményebb küzdelmében a tét az egész emberiség sorsa… „A varázslatos világ legmagasabb csúcsaira és legmélyebb bugyraiba visz el ez a hajtűkanyarokkal teli fordulatos könyv. Csípős, cinikus, csibészes és titokzatos. Az igazság Odaát van, és nem valami szép…” (Simon R. Green, a New York Times bestseller Járatlan utak szerzője.)
