The Devil's Teardrop

Jeffery Deaver

At 9 am on 31st December a man gets onto the packed escalator of a metro station and fires a silenced machine gun through a paper bag. He escapes without being spotted in the confusion caused by dozens of killed and injured people. A note is delivered to the mayor of Washington, D.C., demanding $20 million, or the writer will instruct the gunman to strike again, at 4.00, 8.00 and midnight. The mayor decides to pay up. But then a man is killed in a hit and run accident - his fingerprints match the prints on the note. With the brains behind the operation dead, there's no way of stopping the gunman killing again, and again, and again...The only thing the FBI have to go on is the note. And Parker Kincaid, forensic document expert, is the only man who can stop the killer.

Absolute Fear

Lisa Jackson

For three months, Eve Renner has struggled to remember the night she was nearly killed. She remembers getting the anxious call from a friend from her past; she remembers seeing that friend lying in a pool of blood. And she remembers a horrifying glimpse of her lover Cole Dennis's face as a gunshot plunged her into darkness. Now, her memory and emotions scarred, Eve has returned to New Orleans to forget the past just as a new series of killings begins. As her forgotten memories begin to surface, bodies are found and each one seems to lure her back to the ruins of Our Lady of Virtues Hospital, the crumbling old asylum that was once the scene of unspeakable madness. Someone who knows the shocking truths hidden there has been waiting for this moment to strike. He is deadlier than she could ever have imagined and closer than she knows.

Remember Me Like This

Bret Anthony Johnston

ONE OF THE OBSERVER'S BEST HOLIDAY READS 2014 - BBC RADIO 4 BOOK AT BEDTIME'I love this novel' John Irving - 'Excellent' Sunday Times - 'enthralling' New York TimesFour years have passed since Justin Campbell's disappearance, a tragedy that rocked the small town of Southport, Texas. Did he run away? Was he kidnapped? Did he drown in the bay? As the Campbells search for answers, they struggle to hold what's left of their family together. Then one afternoon, the impossible happens. The police call to report that Justin has been found only miles away in a nearby town, and most important, he appears to be fine. And though the reunion is a miracle, Justin's homecoming exposes the deep rifts that have diminished his family, the wounds they all carry that may never fully heal. Trying to return to normal, his parents do their best to ease Justin back into his old life. But as thick summer heat takes hold, violent storms churn in the Gulf and in the Campbells' hearts. When a reversal of fortune lays bare the family's greatest fears - and offers perhaps their only hope for recovery - each of them must fight to keep the ties that bind them from permanently tearing apart. A gripping literary novel with the pace of a thriller, Remember Me Like This introduces Bret Anthony Johnston as a gifted storyteller. With his sophisticated and emotionally taut plot Johnston reveals how only in caring for each other, can we save ourselves.
