In a gripping novel of atmospheric suspense from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson, a woman returns to her Texas hometown to confront deadly lies . . .

The town of Bad Luck, Texas, is home to all kinds of secrets. Shelby Cole had her share, before she left to start a new life. After almost ten years away, a mysterious package arrives at her Seattle home. There’s no return address, just a photograph of a little girl. Shelby knows immediately that this is the daughter she was told died at birth—and that going back is the only way to discover what really happened.

Shelby isn’t the only one coming home. A long-ago killing is in the news again, and Ross McCallum, the man who made a nightmare of Shelby’s past, has been set free because of recanted testimony. Is he baiting her, or has someone else lured her back to Bad Luck for their own twisted purpose?

Shelby's inquiries about her baby are met with stonewalling and hostility. Her only ally is Nevada Smith, the one-time bad boy of Bad Luck. Nevada was the arresting officer in that decade-old murder case. Now he’s a suspect. Though shocked by Shelby’s reappearance, and her revelation about the child he knew nothing about, he’ll do anything to help find their daughter. But searching for answers draws them into a terrifying scheme, where unspoken truths will drive a killer to brutal revenge . . .

NOW A HIT NETFLIX SERIES
A NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER

“Hypnotic and scary.” —Stephen King

“I am riveted, aghast, aroused, you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious.” —Lena Dunham

From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of the Year, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age.

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson keeps readers turning pages with this nail-biting thriller in her Bentz & Montoya series…set in the storied and sultry city of New Orleans.

When New Orleans detective Reuben Montoya is called to investigate a murder with his partner Rick Bentz, he's shocked to recognize the victim. Camille Renard, an old high-school friend, was found on the altar of St. Marguerite's cathedral, dressed in a yellowed bridal gown and viciously garroted. . .

Valerie Houston's younger sister, Camille, had a knack for making bad choices. She left Texas after falling for Val's soon-to-be ex-husband, Slade. But as Val digs deeper into Camille's death, she realizes how little she really knows about her sister and their shared past.

Soon more bodies are found brutally slaughtered. No one is beyond suspicion. No one is safe--least of all Valerie, whose connection to a twisted case is closer, and more dangerous, than she ever could have imagined. For this killer knows all, forgives nothing, and will not rest until Valerie becomes the next to pay for her sins. . .

—Publishers Weekly

"Will Satisfy Series Fans As Well As Readers Who Enjoy Lisa Gardner And Linda Fairstein."
—Library Journal

"A Nail-Biting Tale Of Dangerous Secrets And Deadly Passions."
—Booklist

—The Providence Journal
