‘A Book of Bones’ – On a lonely moor in England, the body of a young woman is discovered near the site of a vanished church. In the south, a girl lies buried beneath an Iron Age mound. To the southeast, the ruins of a priory hide a human skull.  Each is a sacrifice, a summons. And something in the darkness has heard the call…

‘Mr. Nobody’ – A psychiatrist treating a man with no memory discovers that her patient knows far more about her past than his own in this gripping psychological thriller.

A good read.

‘Lost’ – Detective Tom Moon is a Miami PD officer, protecting the city’s most vulnerable. Now as the new leader of an FBI task force called Operation Guardian, he is combating international crime. And no one is playing by anyone’s rules.

‘How Quickly She Disappears’ – It’s been 20 years since Elisabeth watched her twin sister, Jacqueline, disappear without a trace. Now Elisabeth is living far from home in a small Alaskan town. She is in a loveless marriage and has a precocious young daughter she loves more than anything but who reminds her too much of her long-missing sister. Elisabeth’s loneliness-and guilt-grows more unbearable each day. But through it all, she clings to the impossible belief that her sister is still alive and that they’ll be reunited.  But then someone comes to town and he offers a starting revelation: he knows exactly what happened to her sister but he will only reveal this truth if Elisabeth fulfills three requests.

‘Elevator Pitch’ – A heart-pounding tale of terror and menace that will make you think twice the next time you hit ‘Up.’ It all begins on a Monday, when four people board an elevator in a Manhattan office tower. Each presses a button for their floor, but the elevator proceeds, nonstop, to the top. Once there it pauses for a few seconds, but the doors don’t open. Instead, the elevator begins to descend floor-by-floor. Then it plummets…right to the bottom of the shaft. It appears to be a random accident, but on Tuesday, it happens again, in a different Manhattan skyscraper. And then Wednesday brings yet another tragic high-rise catastrophe. In only three days, one of the most vertical cities in the world, and the nation’s capital of media, finance and entertainment is plunged into chaos. A really good read.
