A macabre poem scrawled in blood. A girl with a secret. And a ruthless killer who’ll stop at nothing to find her.
"Thrilling, emotional, and depraved, with twists and turns you don't see coming." ~Kristen Mae, bestselling author of Red Water
"Fearless, smart writing and a plot that will stick with you." ~Beth Teliho, award-winning author of Order of Seven
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.
Dark, gritty, and raw, Famished is an emotional roller coaster and an electrifying debut from bestselling author Meghan O’Flynn. If you like Chelsea Cain, James Patterson, or Caroline Kepnes, you’ll LOVE Famished, the first book in the Ash Park series.
Meghan O’Flynn is a clinical therapist, writer, artist, wife, and mom. She adores her amazing little boys, dark chocolate, tea, dirty jokes, and back rubs with no strings attached, in that order. Meghan is the bestselling author of The Jilted, Shadow's Keep, and the Ash Park series—which includes Famished, Conviction, Repressed, Hidden and Redemption—and has penned a number of short stories including “Crimson Snow” and "Alien Landscape." She is frankly amazed that her wonderful husband still agrees to live with her after reading them and even more shocked that he seems to sleep soundly.

Yesterday, Shannon threw an innocent woman in jail, leaving a murderer on the loose. Today, a killer threatened her family. Tomorrow, he’s coming for her.
"(Conviction) is an intense and suspenseful murder mystery. It captured me from the first chapter and held me enthralled until the final page." ~Susan Sewell, Reader's Favorite
"A white-knuckled thrill ride from first page to last." ~Andra Watkins, NYT bestselling author of Hard to Die
CONVICTION MEANS NOTHING WHEN YOU'RE DEAD WRONG.
Shannon Taylor takes no prisoners--save the ones she tosses into lockup. Between convicting criminals as an Ash Park district attorney, dealing with her jerk ex-husband (who also happens to be her boss), and caring for her dying brother, Shannon is already stretched thin. So she's less than thrilled when new evidence from a closed case emerges--evidence suggesting she threw a young mother in jail for a murder she didn't commit.
Shannon knows the girl is hiding something. But whatever the secret, it is even more compelling than the hope of freedom--the girl won't talk.
When Shannon becomes the target of a series of cryptic and bloody warnings, she must find a way to protect everyone she holds dear. Will her persistence free an innocent woman? Or will her pursuit of the truth turn her family into helpless targets in a madman's game?
Conviction runs deep. Courage runs deeper. And nothing in Ash Park is as it seems.
Conviction is the wildly provocative second novel in Ash Park series by bestselling author Meghan O’Flynn. If you’re a fan of J.D.Robb, Jennifer McMahon, or Laura Lippman, the Ash Park series is for you!
"A gripping ride into frozen insanity." ~Andra Watkins, NYT bestselling author of Hard to Die
"Insanely evocative writing…layered, twisted in all the best ways, and expertly written. I haven't been able to get it out of my head." ~Beth Teliho, award-winning author of Order of Seven
FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF FAMISHED
Green Valley was once known for its fertile farming, picturesque mountains, and abundant wildlife. Now snow and ice cover all but the tallest homes. The only sounds are Maverick's boots clumping through the snowdrifts and the frigid wind hissing down the mountain. Even the beasts in the woods have gone utterly silent.
But the path forward is clear, especially for one emboldened by optimism. So Maverick keeps moving, trudging through the abandoned town toward the desolate tundra beyond the forest, marring the snow with his bloody footprints.
To leave is a risk. To stay might be suicide.
Either way, no one leaves these mountains alive.

WHERE YOU GO, YOUR PAST FOLLOWS.
For once in his life, Curtis Morrison has it good.
A newly-married detective on the Ash Park police force, Morrison spends his days working to heal the ails of society to make up for his own checkered past. But though he's come a long way from a life of deadly, bloody secrets he can't fully recall, not even his wife and baby daughter can silence the old addiction still rattling around in his brain.
And he's about to learn that a history like his is not the kind you can escape from.
When his wife and child go missing, Morrison finds himself dragged into a nightmare game controlled by a sadistic monster hell-bent on making him pay for sins he's repressed for nearly twenty years. Whoever took his wife isn't after her--they want Morrison to suffer. And with each day that passes, his family's situation grows more dire.
Now Morrison must explore a past he'd hoped he'd left behind to save the people he loves, awakening the beast he's tried so hard to forget. What he uncovers is far worse than he imagined, every clue dragging him away from the life he's painstakingly built and back to a place he'd very nearly succumbed.
The clock's ticking. And this time, he might not make it out alive.
This dark and gritty third novel in the Ash Park series from bestselling author Meghan O’Flynn will keep you awake far past your bedtime. “A worthy heir to Patricia Cornwell and Tana French… Repressed is a heart-racing reminder that some people aren't who they seem to be." (NYT bestselling author Andra Watkins)
Fifteen years ago, Rafferty saved Vivian Mollison from a crazed junkie who tried to blow her head off.
A lot has changed since then. Rafferty’s no longer a cop, and Vivian’s now twenty five, studying sociology at SMU, with a father who made a fortune in computers.
So when Rafferty gets summoned to the Mollison estate and told to chase down the five outlaw bikers who kidnapped Vivian and put her into a drug-induced twilight zone, it’s mixed emotions.
The payday will be big, but he’ll have to earn every penny of it. The bikers aren’t likely to come quietly and who knows how many people could get hurt in the crossfire.
But behind all that fun and excitement, there’s still a girl who needs his help.
Rafferty saved Vivian once. Can he do it again?
If you’re a fan of Spenser, Mike Hammer or Matt Scudder, then this hardboiled pulp thriller, from Shamus Award Winner W. Glenn Duncan, will keep you reading late into the dark night.
RAFFERTY'S RULES is a hardboiled P.I. mystery in the tradition of the best pulp thrillers.
Rafferty’s a Dallas P.I. and an ex-cop who spent enough time on the streets to understand how things work. And when they don’t, Rafferty’s the guy you’ll want on your side. He may quote Latin occasionally, smoke too much and be a cynical sonofabitch, but when it all hits the fan and you need someone you can trust, you’ll be glad you called Rafferty.
Originally published by Ballantine, this 30th Anniversary release of RAFFERTY'S RULES marks the first time that W. Glenn Duncan’s work has been available in digital format. We doubt that Rafferty would quietly accept the ongoing march of technology that provides this opportunity, but even a grizzled P.I. has to grow up sometime.
This hardboiled PI series will continue with the first new Rafferty story in nearly three decades. FALSE GODS, written by W. Glenn Duncan Jr. (son of the original author) sees Rafferty looking for a missing girl, up to his ass in religious fundamentalists and needing all the help he can get from his old pals Cowboy and Mimi—and a few new ones—to make sure he gets out alive.

Praise for W. Glenn Duncan:
“Sometimes it seemed W. Glenn Duncan's Texas P.I. Rafferty had a rule for everything, but the fact remains that most of them were a hoot. And, of course, a further irony is that "Rafferty's Rules" is, in fact, an Australian football term for "no rules at all.” - Thrilling Detective Website
“I have all of the Rafferty titles in my collection. I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff over the years, but the Rafferty books are a mainstay. I think they're terrific!” - Paul Bishop
“Duncan truly captured the pure essence of the definitive smart-ass private eye in his character Rafferty. Take part Sam Spade with a little Mike Hammer, mix in some Spenser and you have an awesome character.” - Cliff Fausset
“At first sniff, it may smell like Spenser with a cowboy hat, but take a good whiff: W. Glenn Duncan's Dallas, Texas private eye RAFFERTY was actually a blast of fresh air in what was rapidly becoming a glut of sensitive, soul-searching, overly politically-correct cookie cutter P.I.s in the late eighties. Of course, it helps that Dallas ain't Boston.” - Kevin Burton Smith
