After years of traditional treatments and therapies, Derrick still suffers from pain ineluctable enough that it has become his identity. Then he hears of an exclusive, very private New York clinic that promises relief. It comes highly recommended by a friend. The multisession remedy unfolds as a sensorial wonder that’s so illuminating it’s enough to bring tears to Derrick’s eyes. It’s all working so well. So unexpectedly well.

A young couple buys a beautiful house by a picturesque lake in the Catskills, looking to escape the bustle of the city to raise their newborn baby. It is a perfect place for a fresh start. Except that nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. As autumn nights close in around their home, they learn that darkness takes many forms. And sometimes that darkness is hungry. New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry delivers an unsettling Audible Original that will give listeners the Halloween creeps all year round.

This is why I love Jonathan Maberry. His talent for making you uncomfortable, then sad, then scared out of your wits is unparalleled. What a tale! If you're a new parent, either prepare yourself or skip this one til your baby is older...just fair warning. #scary # ghostory # scary #creepy #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

Stephen King hates to fly. Now he and coeditor Bev Vincent would like to share this fear of flying with you. Welcome to Flight or Fright, an anthology about all the things that can go horribly wrong when you're suspended six miles in the air, hurtling through space at more than 500 mph and sealed up in a metal tube (like - gulp! - a coffin) with hundreds of strangers. All the ways your trip into the friendly skies can turn into a nightmare, including some we'll bet you've never thought of before....

Daniel Martin has never forgotten his childhood encounters with Frank Watkins, the man who built his family a summer home out of cardboard and plywood. Frank's gaze was oddly confusing, as if he was attempting to discern the proper way to behave because he didn't know how to respond in a human manner. Since Frank obviously wasn't an alien, young Daniel thought maybe the man was crazy. In the end, Daniel would learn the terrifying truth about Frank Watkins. And as an adult, Daniel is about to discover there are more of them out there.

Longtime residents of Harper's Cove believe that something is wrong with the Widow's Point Lighthouse. Some say it's cursed. Others claim it's haunted. Originally built in 1838, three workers were killed during the lighthouse's construction including one who mysteriously plunged to his death from the catwalk. That tragic accident was never explained, and it was just the beginning of the terror.

It's 1934. Businesses went under by the hundreds, debt and foreclosures boomed, and breadlines grew in many American cities. In the midst of this misery, some folks explored unscrupulous ways to make money. Angel-faced John Partlow and carnival huckster Ginger LaFrance are among the worst of this lot. Joining together they leave their small-time confidence scams behind to attempt an elaborate kidnapping-for-ransom scheme in New Orleans.

It was so nice to see A.E. Pendergast return to the FBI agent that first caught my eye in Relic. The last few books have left me empty and wanting, tired of the endless re-animation of his brother, the peril of Constance Green, the never-ending story of his found sons....Don't get me wrong, I love Preston and Child and have read everything they have written, but I especially adored Pendergast and their last 2 or 3 novels did not do him justice. Enter "City of Endless Night". I almost didn't buy this book because the last so disappointed me. But when I read it was the Pendergast of old, teamed up with DeGosta to solve a real crime I had to get it. And I was not disappointed. While still an extraordinary man and agent, Pendergast was for once almost human and vulnerable. No amazing even if confounding escapes or solutions to the crime. He had to work for both, to live and to solve who the killer was. Though that reveal was slightly annoying, because there was no real reason it was who it was, and there were no hints to suggest it. Kind of a cheat in my book but I won't quibble. The book was enjoyable and exciting. Recommended.
