BEHIND HER EYES by Sarah Pinborough
A January 2017 LibraryReads pick and a February 2017 Indie Next pick! “Pinborough, an accomplished author of horror, mysteries, dark fantasy, and psychological suspense, has drawn on all her gifts to tell her latest story, a masterpiece of suspense centered on a bad marriage. Give this intense book to patrons freely, but especially target those who are fatigued with the current spate of female-driven psychological suspense. It will be enough to shake things up for them (it even has a hashtag campaign, #WTFThatEnding).” Booklist, starred review

FEVER IN THE DARK by Ellen Hart
The 21st book in the Jane Lawless series from future-MWA Grand Master Ellen Hart!
