Book of Shadows
Homicide detective Adam Garrett is already a rising star in the Boston police department when he and his cynical partner, Carl Landauer, catch a horrifying case that could make their careers: the ritualistic murder of a wealthy college girl that appears to have Satanic elements.
The partners make a quick arrest when all evidence points to another student, a troubled musician in a Goth band who was either dating or stalking the murdered girl. But Garrett’s case is turned upside down when beautiful, mysterious Tanith Cabarrus, a practicing witch from nearby Salem, walks into the homicide bureau and insists that the real perpetrator is still at large. Tanith claims to have had psychic visions that the killer has ritually sacrificed other teenagers in his attempts to summon a powerful, ancient demon.
All Garrett’s beliefs about the nature of reality will be tested as he is forced to team up with a woman he is fiercely attracted to but cannot trust, in a race to uncover a psychotic killer before he strikes again.
Apocalypse: Year Zero
A cynical New York commodities broker on the eve of her wedding
A British advertising executive on vacation with her husband in Thailand
A troubled New Orleans pharmacy student caretaking her even more troubled little sister
A Hollywood D-Girl cracking under the strain of her surreal life
Each of these very different women finds herself in the middle of an apocalyptic disaster: the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, the tsunami in Thailand, Hurricane Katrina, and Southern California’s dreaded “Big One.” Each survives the ordeal with great personal loss: the death of loved ones, disfigurement, mental collapse. But each also finds herself in sudden possession of mysterious powers of Fire, Water, Air and Earth.
As the women are inexorably drawn together, their powers increase, but they quickly realize those powers can be used for evil as well as for good.
And with the signs of a coming Armageddon building around them, the women start to wonder…
What if the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse aren’t men at all?
The Space Between
How can you prevent the future? Would you dare?
Sixteen-year old Anna Sullivan is having terrible dreams of a massacre at her high school. Anna’s father is a mentally unstable veteran, her mother disappeared when Anna was five, and Anna might have been able to chalk the dreams up to a reflection of her crazy waking life—except that Tyler Marsh, the most popular guy at the school and Anna’s secret crush, is having the exact same dreams.
Despite the gulf between them in social status, Anna and Tyler connect, first in the dream and then in reality. As the dreams reveal more, with clues from the school social structure, quantum physics, probability, and Anna’s own past, Anna becomes convinced that they are being shown the future so they can prevent the shooting…
If they can survive the shooter—and the dream.
Based on the Thriller Award-winning short story, “The Edge of Seventeen.”
