    In Ireland, Gannington Manor has remained empty for years, and rumor has it the mansion is haunted. What appears to be blood drips from the ceiling, and two men have been found dead within—both in the great entrance hall, neither displaying any signs of violence. Perhaps it is a prank, or perhaps it is something more sinister. Psychic detective Thomas Carnacki, the ghost finder, recruits a group of strong men from the village—and their dogs—to accompany him during his investigation of the purported haunting. Their mission: to spend the night within the mansion and see what occurs.

He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob.

Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and Will is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda’s motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before­—when Will’s father was imprisoned for murder—this was his home… Flash back nearly forty years: In the summer Will Trent was born, Amanda Wagner is taking her first steps in the boy’s club that is the Atlanta police department. One of her first cases is to investigate a brutal crime in one of the city’s worst neighborhoods. Amanda and her partner Evelyn are the only ones who seem to care if an arrest is ever made. Now the case that launched Amanda’s career has suddenly come back to life, and it is intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage.

    One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestselling author Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. 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.

    It’s the most dangerous case of Will Trent’s career. He knows this from the moment he sets foot in the abandoned Atlanta warehouse where a body lies on the floor—the body of an ex-cop. Bloody footprints leading away from the scene reveal that another victim, evidently a woman, was carried away … and has vanished into thin air. And, worst of all, the warehouse belongs to the city’s biggest and most high-profile athlete—a local hero protected by the world’s most expensive lawyers. A hero married to Will’s ex-wife. A hero whom Will’s superiors at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have spent the last six months investigating for rape. But for Will—and also for Sara Linton, the GBI’s newest medical examiner—the case is about to get even worse. Because an unexpected discovery at the scene reveals a personal link to Will’s troubled past … and the consequences will wreak havoc on his life and the lives of those he loves, those he works with, and those he pursues. Relentlessly suspenseful and furiously paced, peopled with characters who leap from the page, The Kept Woman marks Karin Slaughter’s triumphant return to her most popular series.

    McKinty’s previous book, Falling Glass, was an Audible.com Best Thriller of 2011  Northern Ireland, spring 1981. Hunger strikes, riots, power cuts, a homophobic serial killer with a penchant for opera, and a young woman’s suicide that may yet turn out to be murder: on the surface, the events are unconnected, but then things—and people—aren’t always what they seem. Detective Sergeant Duffy is the man tasked with trying to get to the bottom of it all. It’s no easy job—especially when it turns out that one of the victims was involved in the IRA but was last seen discussing business with someone from the loyalist Ulster Volunteer Force. Add to this the fact that, as a Catholic policeman, it doesn’t matter which side he’s on, because nobody trusts him, and Sergeant Duffy really is in a no-win situation. Fast-paced, evocative, and brutal, The Cold Cold Ground is a brilliant depiction of Belfast at the height of the Troubles—and of a cop treading a thin, thin line.

    Written by award-winning thriller heavyweight R. J. Ellory, this ambitious crime novel takes the author’s skill for suspense to a spellbinding level. When Catherine Ducane disappears in the heart of New Orleans, the cops react fast—after all, she is the governor’s daughter. But the case gets very strange, very quickly. Her bodyguard turns up horribly mutilated in the trunk of a beautiful vintage car, and when the kidnapper calls, he doesn’t want money; he wants time alone with a certain government functionary. Dragged down to the deep South from the New York district attorney’s office, Ray Hartmann puzzles over why he has been summoned and why the mysterious kidnapper, an elderly Cuban named Ernesto Perez, wants to tell him his life story. But by the time the pieces fall into place, it’s already too late. A Quiet Vendetta is both the epic story of one man’s life in the Italian Mafia—a story ranging from Cuba to Chicago—and a thrilling tale of rage, love, and loss. With tension to match the best of Cussler, Patterson, and his own bestselling work, A Quiet Vendetta confirms R. J. Ellory’s place at the forefront of the genre.

    From the internationally bestselling author of the acclaimed novel The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping, ripped from the headlines story of power, corruption, revenge, and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars. It’s 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adán Barrera, the head of El Federación, the world’s most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller’s partner. Finally putting Barrera away cost Keller dearly—the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead. Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. His obsession with justice—or is it revenge?—becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains, and deserts of Mexico to Washington’s corridors of power to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona. Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexico’s drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera—and himself—that he always knew must happen. The Cartel is a true-to-life story of honor and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul. It is the story of the war on drugs and the men—and women—who wage it.

    This box set includes three award-winning Harry Bosch thrillers, all voiced by standout Broadway veteran Len Cariou. The Narrows FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she’s dreaded for years, the one that tells her the Poet has surfaced. She has never forgotten the serial killer who wove lines of poetry in his hideous crimes, and apparently he has not forgotten her. Former LAPD detective Harry Bosch gets a call, too, from the widow of an old friend. Her husband’s death seems natural, but his ties to the hunt for the Poet make Bosch dig deep. Arriving at a derelict spot in the California desert where the feds are unearthing bodies, Bosch joins forces with Rachel. Now the two are at odds with the FBI, and squarely in the path of the Poet, who will lead them on a wicked ride out of the heat, through the narrows of evil, and into a darkness all his own. Echo Park In 1995, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket in Hollywood. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn’t crack it, and the twenty-two year old woman never turned up, dead or alive. Now Bosch is in the Open-Unsolved Unit, where he still keeps the Gesto file on his desk, when he gets a call from the DA. Michael Connelly’s suspenseful new novel pits the detective People magazine calls “one of the most complex crime fighters around” against one of the most sadistic killers he has ever confronted. It confirms that Michael Connelly “is the best writer of suspense fiction working today” (Richmond Times-Dispatch). The Overlook In his first case since he left the LAPD’s Open-Unsolved Unit for the prestigious Homicide Special squad, Harry Bosch is called out to investigate a murder that may have chilling consequences for national security. A doctor with access to a dangerous radioactive substance is found murdered in the trunk of his car. Retracing his steps, Harry learns that a large quantity of radioactive cesium was stolen shortly before the doctor’s death. With the cesium in unknown hands, Harry fears the murder could be part of a terrorist plot to poison a major American city.
