A trained killer. One kill list. A world of hurt.


In this novel author Frances Paul introduces a complex and driven young lady determined to uncover the truth surrounding the murder of her parents and to bring to justice the people responsible for the cruel act. 



Executed by a man her father called friend and orphaned at ten years old, Savio Cardozo, Karina’s father’s second in command adopted her. He also inherited the Navarre billion dollar empire. He genuinely loved and treated Karina as his own but his love did not eradicate the pain and rage she harbored in her heart since that dark night. Powerless to control her rebellious arrogance, he sent her away to live with a former KGB officer, Sasha Glukhov. He was contracted to train and turn her into one of the world’s deadliest markswoman, and he succeeded in doing so.


After eight years of taking her under his wing, she was ready to introduce Karina Navarre to the underworld. A girl who has been discarded and forgotten. She married Thian Cardozo, Savio’s son, after inheriting his father’s position as the head of the Navarre Organization. The unprecedented move was to make them resilient and a powerful house. However, a little over a year into their sacred union, Thian Cardozo is assassinated. Just as her folks. Slaughtered in a dingy alley and disposed of like a piece of garbage.


Karina’s heart drowned in deep agony. Fueled by her grief, she sets off on a breathtaking journey of twists and turns, fighting in a world where women are deemed inferior. But she’s determined to avenge the deaths of those she lost, even if that means risking everything including her own life in the process.


Karina Navarre has a list, and she’s crossing off names…one by bloody one.


Would she survive long enough to accomplish her mission?


Thrilling, unpredictable, fast-paced, and powered by a grieved widow’s inexorable sense of duty.

A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
