Amelia White dreams of being a reporter. The closest she’s come is selling advertising in the local paper – until the fateful day she stumbles on a shocking scoop.
Round the corner from her home, she discovers the body of a murder victim, dumped among the rubbish. When the police and reporters descend, Amelia is horrified at the lies soon to be spread about the young woman.
Determined to protect the victim from these smears, she convinces her paper’s editor to let her tell the true story. And when another body is found, Amelia discovers that she may be the only one with any chance of learning the truth and stopping more killings.
The Shadow Friend
Paul Adams can remember the case too – Charlie and his victim were his friends. Paul left town as soon as he could, and he’s never gone back.
In the news, Paul learns another copycat has struck. His mother is distressed, insistent that there’s something in the house. Someone is following him.
Which reminds him of the most unsettling thing about that awful day twenty-five years ago. It wasn’t just the murder.
It was the fact that afterwards, Charlie Crabtree was never seen again…
He Started It
Beth, Portia and Eddie are siblings. Like all siblings, sometimes they don’t get along.
When their grandfather dies, he leaves a troublingly specific condition in his will. For them to inherit his wealth, they’re required to retake a road trip they took with him when they were children, and scatter his ashes at the end of it.
Of course, reuniting after all this time brings back memories of that ill-fated trip. Memories of what went wrong.
But it’s not only memories they have to worry about. Someone is following them. Each of them is keeping secrets. And all of them are all too aware of what happened last time.
Because you can’t inherit the money if someone kills you first.
The Summer House
Once a luxurious getaway for a wealthy Southern family, the Summer House has long since fallen into disrepair. Its fall from grace is complete when it becomes the scene of a horrific mass murder.
Shocking evidence points to four Army Rangers recently returned from Afghanistan. The Army sends Major Jeremiah Cook, a war veteran and former NYPD cop, to investigate.
As Cook and his team struggle to put together pieces of evidence that just won’t fit, powerful forces rally against them to try to ensure that damning secrets are buried along with the victims.
