Ten teens. Three days. One killer.
It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie are looking forward to two days of boys, booze, and fun-filled luxury. But what starts out as fun turns twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine. And things only get worse from there.
With a storm raging outside, the teens are cut off from the outside world . . . so when a mysterious killer begins picking them off one by one, there’s no escape. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on one another, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

Every night he comes to the ledge.
So far, he hasn’t jumped.
Sarah watches him from her window, unable to look away.
Will tonight will be the night that his body hurtles through space and crashes to the ground in a failed attempt to fly?
Standing between heaven and hell, life and death, eighteen-year-old Brendan massages the ledge, arms outstretched, contemplating suicide.
Cutting isn’t cutting it. Drugs can’t numb the pain.
His best friend is dead, and his wealthy parents are nothing like the polished image they show the rest of the world. Between his father's abuse and his mother's alcoholic neglect, their Manhattan penthouse feels more like a prison.
Paige and Nate watch from their fire escape, teetering on their own edge after a brutal rape has nearly shattered their relationship. Watching is one thing, but how they can stand by, knowing what they know and doing nothing about it?
When they all start meeting in their everyday lives, things get complicated, turning a strange sort of night-time voyeurism into a day-to-day game of life and death. Can Brendan get past Tess’ death and find his own path forward? Can Sarah find the courage to confront him? Will Nate get to him in time?
This hauntingly beautiful coming of age tale will make you laugh, cry, rage and cheer as we realize we are all human, all fallible, and all prone to believe the lies we tell ourselves.
Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.
But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’ doesn't even begin to apply.
Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.
It was supposed to be a vacation. It's turning out to be a whole lot more.
It's 2050 and the renaissance of football (soccer) thinking has just begun. This is the first installment of a football science fiction journey shared by two countries from opposite ends of the world.

Will Gunnar have the clout to protect his proprietary invention from his adversaries? He may stand a chance when he ushers the support of his Australian friend and football scout, Robby Denehy.
With twists and turns throughout the story, world football domination keeps you on your toes by providing glimpses of what the future of football beholds.

All three Ruby Callaway novels and all four side stories together for the first time—1,100+ pages of snarky urban fantasy perfect for fans of Kate Daniels and The Dresden Files.
It all started with a death: her own.
Ruby Callaway is the most feared supernatural bounty hunter in the world. But even Ruby has limits. And, after two centuries, she might have finally met her match.
Spanning over two hundred years, from her origin story in 1812 (Bone Realm) to her battle against the corporate monolith MagiTekk in the near-future (Lightning Blade), Ruby Callaway: The Complete Collection is not your typical urban fantasy.
But, then, Ruby isn't your typical bounty hunter.
Ruby Callaway: The Complete Collection contains all three full-length novels in The Ruby Callaway Trilogy: Lightning Blade, Shadow Flare, and Blood River. It also includes all four of Ruby's side adventures fleshing out her two century backstory, previously only available to subscribers of D.N. Erikson's newsletter. These include two novellas: Bone Realm and Going Home, and two side stories: "Silver Tempest" and "Kentucky Clear."
A young woman with a secret heritage. A man who made a deal with the devil. And an academy where the students are just as dangerous as the demons ...
I've been kept from the truth all my life. Demons walk the earth, and I'm destined to slay them--I only wish I hadn't lost someone I loved while discovering that truth.
Now the demons are after me. The only way to stay alive is to attend an academy for demon hunters--a school where I'll learn how to kill supernaturals and slay the underworld's minions. But I still feel there are secrets I'm not being told ...
I sold my soul to save my family--and lost everything because of it. Now I'm a slave to the underworld, a fake hunter with half-demon blood.
I've been sent on a special assassination mission. If I fail, it means my life. But protecting Erin soon becomes more important than any other task, and there's something about her that tells me her arrival at the academy will change everything ...
An upper young adult paranormal romance novel set in the universe of the Rite World, this is a dark fantasy you won't want to miss! Forge your weapons and cast spells in a school where demons are hunted and the hunters themselves become prey.
It is the year 2058.
The Sino-American War has decimated several generations of men, and the Sterility Epidemic has made 90% of the surviving males sterile.
Electricity does not function in five western states. Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana are territories once again. Collectively, they are known as the Juniper.
It is the most dangerous place on Earth.
On a desperate post-apocalyptic cattle drive to save their family ranch, Cavatica Weller and her two gunslinging sisters stumble across a rare boy. Sharlotte wants to send him away, Wren wants to sell him…and Cavatica falls in love with him.
Little do they know that an inhuman army is searching for the boy and will stop at nothing to find him.
Disclaimer: This is a new cover and title for Aaron Michael Ritchey's Dandelion Iron book. There were no significant changes made to the content of the book.
When I was a child, the usurper invaded my country. My family died in front of me and left Castle Ambrose in tatters. Since then, the usurper has ruled over Hamlin and I’ve wanted nothing more than to see him dead.
Life at Castle Ambrose isn’t all bad for Janna. She has a secret – she can communicate with the sea serpent living in the loch. When merchants visit Castle Ambrose, Janna hears that the Earl of Ambrose’s sons are still alive, but imprisoned. If she can free them, they can round up rebels from across Hamlin and rid themselves of the filthy usurper.
Civil war churns on the horizon, but Jana’s loyalties waver. The sea serpents can destroy the enemy’s ships…and Janna must decide who that enemy is.
Seriously? Four dragon warriors need to stalk my every move?
I get it. They think I’m dangerous, but I’m only on their island to learn. Not to destroy it.
This is another unfortunate side-effect of being the freak who descended from all three supernatural lineages. The bloodthirsty dragons, the destructive wolves, and the disloyal witches. Some believe that, when I transition in a few months, there’s a slight, teeny tiny chance I could unleash hell on the supernatural world. Call me crazy, but I’d know if I harbored that kind of power inside me.
… Wouldn’t I?
My entire life, all I’ve wanted was to be normal. Hence the reason I didn’t think twice about trading in my crown for a stack of books. I’ve got three terms on this island to prove the naysayers wrong, including my chaperones—Kai, Ori, Paulo, and Rayen.
These four are gorgeous, but also ominous as heck. Babysitting me has clearly taken their focus off something they’ve deemed more important. So, now they go out of their way to make my life a living hell, with hopes that I’ll give up and leave.
You could cut the tension between us with a knife, but what’s weird is I don’t hate them all the time. There are even odd moments when I catch them watching me. And not in their usual “wish-you-were-dead” sort of way.
Even if I survive the academy, there’s still no guarantee these four and I won’t kill each other before graduation.
"Noelle and her dragons have captured me. Four Dragon warriors and each has their own story to tell, their own voice, and they come together so smoothly. This book is so epic!" - Kalli's Book Nook

Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet? With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

Escaping on the back of dragons, with a hodgepodge of unwelcome associates, she attempts to right a wrong that can never be fixed. Until, ultimately, she must put her own life on the line to keep the freedom she has stolen for herself.

GINA MAZZIO RN MEDICAL THRILLER SERIES
Veterans are being murdered.
This is #8 in the fast-paced Gina Mazzio RN medical thriller series
BONE POINT will not disappoint
Long-time fans will rejoice—now we know love does conquer all. Gina is pregnant—this after doctors said it would never happen.
But five months into her high-risk pregnancy, Gina's veteran brother, who suffers from PTSD, vanishes.
Why has he abandoned everyone and everything?
Although under bed-rest orders, Gina takes off to find him.
What she discovers is that Vinnie's been swallowed up in a derelict, soon-to-close VA psychiatric hospital with a corrupt administration involved in greed, malevolence, and murder.
Vinnie could be the next to die.
This action-packed, shocking, take-no-prisoners tale of medical suspense is definitely not for the faint-hearted. But fans of the more hard-boiled medical thrillers (and also of Patricia Cornwell) will eat it up; as will lovers of strong women detectives, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction, especially fans of Tess Gerritsen.
Advance praise for BONE POINT:
"The Lambs are real masters of taut action and edge-of-the-seat suspense. Bone Point is another outstanding entry in this exciting series of medical thrillers."
—Margaret Lucke, author of Snow Angel
Praise for the previous Gina Mazzio Books:
"Deftly plotted and artfully executed, Bone Pit is a compelling read that provides a shocking look at the world of contemporary medicine and Big Pharma."
—Sheldon Siegel, New York Times best-selling author
"SIN & BONE is a chilling, gripping thriller by a talented writing couple."
—Marcia Muller & Bill Pronzini, MWA Grand Masters
"BONE DRY ... a medical thriller not for the squeamish."
From The Authors:
Writing about RN Gina Mazzio and her boyfriend, RN Harry Lucke, has been a fun experience. It's also a privilege to tell about characters who dedicate their lives to helping others. Many of the people our protagonists work with (as in real life) spend each and every day, perhaps not with murder, but certainly in pain, distress, and danger. We hope most of our books bring the positive recognition that nurses deserve.

In addition to co-authored books with J. J. , she has had three other books published: THE ORGAN HARVESTERS and THE ORGAN HARVESTERS BOOK II and THE RUSSIAN GIRL.
J. J. LAMB is a career writer - journalism, short stories, and novels. In addition to fiction co-authored with Bette, he is the creator of the Zachariah Tobias Rolfe III private eye series, the latest of which, NO PAT HANDS, was nominated for a Shamus Award.
The LAMBS live in Northern California and are members of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime.
BONE POINT is the eighth book in the Gina Mazzio RN medical thriller series, which includes BONE DRY, SIN & BONE, BONE PIT, BONE OF CONTENTION, BONE DUST, BONE CRACK, and BONE SLICE.
Also, SISTERS IN SILENCE, HEIR TODAY..., and THE KILLING VOTE were co-authored novels.
The Lambs also have three action-packed boxsets: Bone Set I, Bone Set II, and Smorgasbord of Suspense.
