OLD SINS. NEW BLOOD.
Deputy Sheriff William Shannahan doesn’t feel like a detective, at least not like the ones he admires on TV. Not that he needs to be; the small town of Graybel, Mississippi, is a peaceful place, with acres of farmland, neighbors who always take care of their own, and noise from the outside world muted by a hundred miles of forest.
That silence is about to be broken.
When a child is found dead in the woods, the medical examiner deems it a dog attack. But the paw prints belong to something far larger than any creature in the Mississippi forests, and what animal would remove the victim’s eyes? Though no one believes him, William can’t shake the feeling that a human killer lurks in the shadowed woods.
And his girlfriend, Cassie, has a son the same age as the victim.
Cassie Parker was raised amid horrors she’s long pushed from her mind, but her scars won’t let her forget. Nor do the hallucinations, dreams so vivid she can feel and smell and taste them. And no one is more terrified than Cassie when another victim is found mauled to death—because this body has been drained of blood. She knows exactly what type of person would sacrifice a child, and why they’re after hers. But how can she explain it to William?
This is William’s chance to act like a detective, to protect the woman and child he’s desperate to save. Pushing back against prejudice and presumption, he uncovers a trail of cruelty that spans decades, but each clue brings him closer to a truth more horrifying than killer beasts in the forest. For concealed beneath small-town politics is knowledge that will shatter everything he knows to be true about his town—and the people in it.
A compulsively readable thriller in the vein of Cujo, The Girl on the Train, and M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village, Shadow’s Keep is a mind-bending exploration of obsession, desperation, and how far we’ll go to protect those we love.

ASHES TO ASHES…
It's been five years since the Looking Glass killer terrorized the streets of Ash Park, leaving a trail of dissected victims in his wake.
Five years since the Looking Glass killer kidnapped Hannah Montgomery, a woman Detective Petrosky had sworn to protect--a woman who looked just like his murdered daughter.
Five years of guilt-ridden nights Petrosky spent wishing he could find the balls to put a bullet in his brain.
But when a call comes in from the police department in Hannah Montgomery's hometown, Petrosky must re-evaluate all he knows to be true. Could the killing of Hannah Montgomery's father be connected to the Looking Glass case?
What he finds is the most shocking revelation of his career, one that tangles past and present in an inescapable web of deceit. For the Looking Glass killer isn't the only sadistic butcher he needs to find--the man who raped and burned his daughter alive is still out there, taunting him with the bodies of other victims. And the cases are too closely connected to tease apart.
Now Petrosky must holster his grief to track the man who destroyed the only good thing he's ever done.
And when Petrosky goes, he's taking that bastard with him.

STARVATION TAKES MANY FORMS
Ash Park, a run-down suburb of Detroit, might not be the most idyllic place to live, but for Hannah Montgomery, it’s safe. At least, it feels that way until a serial killer starts dicing up women from the shelter where she volunteers.
Hannah manages to convince herself the killings have nothing to do with her brutal past—but then her boyfriend is murdered in the same ruthless manner as the others. And the police think she may have had something to do with it.
The cops are right about one thing: Hannah is responsible. Because she knows who the killer is. Now she must face the fact that she brought a monster with her to Ash Park—and his appetite for blood is insatiable.
Everyone's hungry for something.
Some are more famished than others.

BE BRAVE, LITTLE GIRL. DADDY'S HERE.
As far as thirteen-year-old Katie is concerned, her world might as well revolve around her father. But lately, things have been strange on their North Dakota ranch.
