DESCRIPTION:

Would you recognize a real scream on Halloween?

That's the question haunting Norah Lewis.

She can't shake the guilt that's stalked her since the night her brother was murdered. She heard --and ignored--his last screams. Just like everyone else at the Thicket, a haunted attraction in tiny Declo, Idaho.

But as Halloween approaches, Norah's personal tragedy is overshadowed by a media circus. Parents' groups and PTAs lobby for a shutdown while thrill seekers far and wide clamor for a chance to visit the notorious haunted attraction.

Many of Norah's classmates eagerly plan a visit. And, reluctantly, so does Norah, who is driven to retrace her brother's last steps.

But the man in the grainy security footage whose masked face is plastered across the news hasn't chosen the Thicket at random.

And, like Norah, he's planning a return visit.

A NAIL-BITINGLY SCARY SUSPENSE THRILLER

Sightings of a strange girl on the outskirts of the small Australian town of Thorn Tree coincide with the outbreak of a deadly sickness.

The girl appears in people's nightmares, beckoning them into nothingness.

Maggie's café lies at the heart of the town, and she quickly becomes embroiled in the unfolding events.

As more people she knows succumb to the illness, Maggie will have to act fast to root out its cause.

Maggie believes that if she understands the girl's story and finds her, she can save her friends and herself.

But maybe she too has merely been lured into the pest's evil embrace.

A slow-burn psychological thriller. High adventure, dark games and chilling horror set in a monastery on a remote Greek island. 

Evie is in the grip of a gambling addiction. She's terrified she'll destroy the lives of her husband and two small daughters, especially with her rising debt. She grabs onto a lifeline - the offer of a program that promises to heal addictions and give her a fresh start.

There are six days and six challenges on the path to healing. Ten thousand dollars per challenge. Sixty thousand on completion. Enough to pay off debts and start anew.

Evie and 27 others from around the world travel to a monastery on a tiny Greek island to begin the program.

BUT WHO IS THE ONE WATCHING & WAITING BEHIND THE WALLS?

Evie's husband Gray is gutted to find the note that Evie left behind. Why did she leave and where did she go? When Evie's car is found burned out in woodland, the police suspect him of murdering Evie.

Gray has one chance to fly to Greece to try to find Evie - before he's arrested for something he didn't do.

Too late, Evie discovers the chilling truth about the monastery and the island. And the closer she gets to finding an escape, the closer the danger gets to her.

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

They arrive alive. They leave dead.

But first, they give me their confessions.

Fans of Stephen King, Joe Hill and like to read books like The Bird Box, The Haunting and can't get enough stories about serial killers are going to enjoy reading the deathbed confessions from The Asylum.

My name is Jack Steen and for those who arrive on my 'death' ward at the Asylum, I'm the last face many will see before they die. I am the night nurse at the Asylum for the Criminally Insane.  

Most of my patients are serial killers and mass murderers and they know me as the Angel of Death. 

When they come onto my floor, I offer a deal: tell me their story, their 'untold' story that hasn't been read about in the news, sensationalized by media or cataloged in a ridiculous number of academic papers. I want the real story - the one they haven't old anyone. Some of these killers have never confessed to their crimes, some kept certain information to themselves...those are the stories I want.

If they give them to me, I'll make their death...easier. They're already dying, that's why they're now my patients. If they play nice, I can make their death less painful. But only if they play nice and tell me their confessions.

The majority of these killers are expert manipulators. I realize they could be playing me and messing with my head. It's a chance I'm willing to take.

And now...they might just be playing with yours too.

Inside this book are 4 DeathBed Confessions:

Patient 1024 has an interesting 'appetite'. 

Patient 974 is the Ken to his Barbie, and he would do anything to keep her happy.

Patient 871 is a Nanny, but not one you want watching your kids.

Patient 1203 is the sweetest, broken soul you'll ever meet but her confession is a hard read. 

WARNING: There is swearing in this book. And some stories might be a trigger for something you have a hard time handling. 

But, these are the confessions of serial killers, mass murderers and such.

Some believe Bedford, Maine, is cursed. Its bloody past, endless rain, and the decay of its downtown portend a hopeless future. With the death of its paper mill, Bedford's unemployed residents soon find themselves with far too much time to dwell on thoughts of Susan Marley. Once the local beauty, she's now the local whore. Silently prowling the muddy streets, she watches eerily from the shadows, waiting for . . . something. And haunting the sleep of everyone in town with monstrous visions of violence and horror.

Those who are able will leave Bedford before the darkness fully ascends. But those who are trapped here--from Susan Marley's long-suffering mother and younger sister to her guilt-ridden, alcoholic ex-lover to the destitute and faithless with nowhere else to go--will soon know the fullest and most terrible meaning of nightmare.

From the bestselling authors of Yesterday's Gone, Karma Police, WhiteSpace, and more comes a new tense post-apocalyptic thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.

On October 15, Elizabeth Coombs wakes up from one nightmare to find herself in another ...

Her husband and son have gone on a midnight fishing trip and the world outside has changed in subtle but unmistakable ways.

There's a freak storm, strange lights in the sky, sounds that don't seem right, and something lurking outside her rental cabin -- something that should not be.

At first, Liz tries to tell herself it's all in her head, symptoms of her mental illness, symptoms she tries to treat with pills. The same pills her abusive husband derides her for taking.

Maybe she's just on edge because, in two days, she secretly plans to take her son and leave with her best friend, going far away where her husband can never hurt them again.

Everything will be okay, she tells herself.

But then her son returns home alone with no idea where his father is.

Just one problem, she knows her son is lying.

The boy KNOWS what happened. Why isn't he telling her?

Three days, four max; that's all Coop said it would be.

Gabriel Evers agrees to help his slacker friend with a university project: a short film documenting the sheltered lives of the reclusive Farley family. They live in the Corner House, and - apart from the father - they never leave, self-sufficient and safe from the horrors of the outside world.

But is Gabe safe from them? As he learns more and more about their peculiar routines and habits he cannot shake off the creeping sense of dread. Are the smiles real or hiding something more sinister? And what about the note left for him by one of the children? 'Help me. Get me out of here.'

Torn between loyalty to his friend, his attraction to the eldest Farley daughter, and a desire to find out who it is that feels like a prisoner in their own home, Gabriel Evers journeys to the darkest of places without having to leave the confines of the Corner House.

Leave? Why would anyone want to leave?

A novel of suspense and intensifying horror, 'Corner House' will make you question whether home is truly where the heart is.

DESCRIPTION:

Her body floats. A bloated thing half atop the river. Naked. Pale. Mouth and eyes open wide.

When two fishermen discover a corpse floating in the Clackamas river, profiler Violet Darger heads to rural Oregon to hunt another serial killer. What she discovers in the woods might change the course of her life.

What secrets does the water conceal?

The girl in the water marks the third such case in the area -- all drowned with superficial stab wounds and discovered in a body of water -- and Darger feels certain she won't be the last.

The corpses are badly decomposed. The flesh purpled and softened from their time in the water. The forensic evidence distorted by decay and the elements.

But the victims share one more thing in common -- all were discovered roughly five days post mortem. A coincidence? Something with meaning to be discerned?

Darger suspects the timeline to be significant, but without evidence, she can only guess as to why. That sets up what might be the key to the case:

What is the killer doing to the victims for the four days between their deaths and dumping their bodies?

It's Darger's first case without Loshak, and it will test her like none before.

This pulse-pounding thriller will have you holding your breath until the final page. Fans of John Sandford, Karin Slaughter, Gillian Flynn, and Lisa Gardner should check out the Violet Darger series.

The books in the series can be read in any order, so grab Five Days Post Mortem and get started today.
