Tell Me You're Mine
Author: Elisabeth Norebäck
In this riveting domestic suspense debut, a woman's life shatters when she meets a girl she believes is the daughter she lost years ago--and she finds that reclaiming the life she lost might cost her the life she has. Tell Me You're Mine is a story of guilt, grief, and the delicate balance between love and obsession. Where is the line between hope and madness? Three women: one who believes she has found her long lost daughter, one terrified she's about to lose her child, and one determined to understand who she truly is. Stella Widstrand is a psychotherapist, a happily married mother to a thirteen-year-old son. But when a young woman named Isabelle steps into her clinic to begin therapy, Stella's placid life begins to crumble. She is convinced that Isabelle is her daughter, Alice. The baby that tragically disappeared more than twenty years ago on a beach during a family vacation. Alice is believed to have drowned, but her body was never found. Stella has always believed that Alice is alive, somewhere--but everyone around her worries she's delusional. Could this be Alice? Stella will risk everything to answer that question, but in doing so she will set in motion a sequence of events beyond her control, endangering herself and everyone she loves.

Will Trent è considerato uno dei migliori agenti del Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Eppure, quando una studentessa del college locale viene brutalmente assassinata, il suo supervisore Amanda Wagner lo tiene fuori dal caso. Will non riesce a comprenderne il motivo fino a quando i due non si incontrano in un orfanotrofio abbandonato: il luogo in cui Will aveva trascorso la sua infanzia dopo che la madre era stata uccisa e il padre incarcerato per omicidio. I due detective scopriranno presto che ciò che li lega non è solo un rapporto di lavoro, ma una traccia sepolta a metà degli anni Settanta, quando Amanda era una giovane agente di polizia alle prese con un ambiente ostile alle donne e Will un bambino che stava per perdere tutti i suoi sogni. Una traccia che dovranno seguire e affrontare, a costo di aprire ferite che sembravano rimarginate, per impedire che l’orrore del passato li travolga di nuovo.
Faint Cold Fear
Author: Karin Slaughter
How close do you let a killer come? An apparent student suicide has brought medical examiner Sara Linton to the local college campus, along with her ex-husband, police chief Jeffrey Tolliver.

'Immortality has always fascinated mankind. Priests, alchemists and researchers base their studies on prolonging human life as much as possible, in order to fight their fear of death. Then, there are vampires. The lapis lazuli does not protect against sunlight, which is strictly prohibited. Feelings fade slowly, leaving only great anger inside you, a fury you are not able to fill, even with blood. You must abide by ancient covenants that go against your being and shy away from the people you love and the strong relationships you have built. You must lie about your identity and age, and pretend to be more foolish and ignorant than you really are. You must guard the secret of centuries past. You must fight against human superstition. It's damnation, not the achievement of Perfection. Children must be carefully chosen. Those with the ability to adapt and embrace wisdom. Those who are ready to give up everything, fearlessly, but with reverence. Those who never ask questions, but submit their will to the oldest members of the group. Those who are faithful and never show remorse. So, think about it. Think about it before you step onto unstable ground that is full of pain, anger, dissatisfaction and revenge. This is the greatest condemnation that God could give you.' 'Necrotica' is a poetry anthology composed of fifty-five poems that deal mainly with vampires and are not arranged in any chronological order. The work is deliberately anomalous, since its structure recalls a collection of short stories or a short novel (with a preface, an introduction, a prologue and so on). At the end of the book, there are some fun facts and a bonus story.

THE DOOR IS OPEN . . . For young widow Ellen Wood, her Victorian home is a refuge—a place to feel safe with her eleven-year-old son, Charlie. But when money grows so tight that Ellen could lose the house, her sister, Hannah, makes a radical suggestion . . . rent out some of the rooms. Soon Ellen has three lodgers: Sabine, a German coworker of Hannah’s, recently separated from her husband; Allegra, an eccentric but wise novelist; and Matt, an up-and-coming young journalist in search of his voice, who has just landed a plum job in London. Ellen thinks three strangers are the last complication she needs, but they make her realize just how isolated she has become. Their presence exposes a secret she’s been keeping hidden, as well as a conflict with her sister that is both shocking and revealing.

Outside her home’s sheltering walls lies a world of opportunity as well as danger. Now that she’s had the courage to open the door, does Ellen dare step through?
