Dead to Me by Stephen Edger @bookouture


How do you catch a killer who knows your every move?

The woman lay flat on the table, her face to one side, her wrists bound with thick tape. Deep scratches marked the wood beneath her fingers, now resting cold and still…

When a woman’s body is found in an abandoned bar near the Southampton docks, Detective Kate Matthews is called in to lead the investigation. She must solve this case to prove she is coping with the death of a close colleague. 

Kate knows a pile of ripped up newspaper cuttings discovered at the victim’s house must be a piece of the puzzle, but her team keep hitting dead-ends… Until she finds a disturbing clue that convinces her of three things: The murder is linked to the body of a man found hanging in a warehouse, she is on the hunt for a calculated serial killer, and the killer is watching her every move.

Kate realizes there will be another victim soon, and that her own life is in grave danger, but no one else believes her theory. Can she find and stop the most twisted killer of her career, before another life is lost?

Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier @jenniferhillier


Twenty years ago, Geo was sixteen years old and madly in love with her older boyfriend, Calvin. Geo’s relationship with Calvin caused a rift between Geo and her best friends, Angela and Kaiser. Angela, used to being the one who gets the attention from boys, was jealous, and Kaiser, who had secretly been in love with Geo for years, found it hard to watch her fawn over someone else.

When Angela disappears, all of the friendships and relationships between the group are fractured, and for good reason. Fifteen years later, Geo has moved on with her life, and has tried her hardest to put the past behind her. Her new life shatters when Angela’s body is uncovered, and she’s arrested in relation to the murder – it turns out, her ex boyfriend Calvin was a serial killer known as the Sweetbay Strangler. What’s worse, is the fact that Geo knew what happened to Angela and never told.

After spending five years in prison, Geo returns home. While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep, and what happened that fateful night is more chilling than anyone knows. Now, the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela. How far will Geo go to protect her past?

The Third Victim by Phillip Margolin


A woman stumbles onto a dark road in rural Oregon–tortured, battered, and bound. She tells a horrific story about being kidnapped, then tortured, until she finally managed to escape. She was the lucky one–two other women, with similar burns and bruises, were found dead.

The surviving victim identifies the house where she was held captive and the owner, Alex Mason–a prominent local attorney–is arrested. Although he loudly insists upon his innocence, his wife’s statements about his sexual sadism and the physical evidence found at the scene, his summer home, is damning.

Regina Barrister is a legendary criminal defense attorney, known as “The Sorceress” for her courtroom victories. But she’s got a secret, one that threatens her skill, her reputation, and, most of all, her clients. And she’s agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of defending Alex Mason.

Robin Lockwood, a young lawyer and former MMA fighter, has just left a clerkship at the Oregon Supreme Court to work for Regina Barrister. The Alex Mason trial is her first big one, a likely death penalty case, and she’s second chair to Regina. Increasingly, she’s worried her boss’s behavior and the details in the case against their client don’t quite add up.

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager


Up and coming artist Emma has a past, and that past has affected her work, though no one knows about it. Fifteen years ago, she attended summer camp at Camp Nightingale. She made friends with the other girls in her cabin, Vivian, Natalie, and Allison, even though they were three years older than she was. When Emma wakes up one morning and the three girls are missing, panic sets in at the camp. The last Emma saw of them, they were sneaking out of the cabin and Vivian was telling Emma to keep quiet. The girls were never found, and the camp closed its doors for good.

Now, fifteen years later, Emma’s paintings each secretly contain the three missing girls hidden behind trees and branches. At an art exhibit, Emma is contacted by Franny, the rich owner of the camp, who says she’s opening the camp once again, and wants Emma to come back as an art instructor. In this, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.

After returning to the camp, Emma quickly realizes that something is off when she discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, and worse, finds cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s history. As Emma digs deeper to uncover the truth about what happened all those years ago, she realizes the truth may come at a deadly price.
