Sculptor Clare Kimball has captured the attention of the New York art world. But big-city success cannot burn away the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Emmitsboro, Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

I hated this book, but couldn't put it away. I believe in the evil one and this showed just how evil he is. I got aggravated at the changes in the voices at times, like they stopped recording and picked back up. All I can say about this book is that its EVIL!!!

On a hot July afternoon, a worker at an Antietam Creek construction site drives the blade of his backhoe into a layer of soil - and strikes a 5,000-year-old human skull. The discovery draws plenty of attention and a lot of controversy. It also changes the life of one woman in ways she never expected.

Story line was interesting, but some what unbelievable. After that many killings, buildings blown up, or torched , I believe some sort of law enforcement would have been involved. HATED the voice of Callie!! Sometimes it sounded female but most of the time it was very masculine. And that was annoying and hard to follow who was talking. Can't tell you how much I hated her Male voice!!!! Wouldn't recommend this book to listen to to anyone for Callie's voice alone.

Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes - obscure Bible verses, odd symbols - have the police stumped. Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has been there only a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Catch a tiger by its toe. It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared. She never saw Mercy again. Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon. So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon - and its rider missing - Pine is called in to investigate.

This book was very interesting to listen to. However I hated the super short chapters. I did love the main charter, even though he was a killer. I was especially impressed with the ending, certainly didn't expect that but was like the cherry on top your icecream!! Bravo!!!!

It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait - and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.

I didn't like this book , I loved it!! The drama, action, subspence, love, all of it! Great writing, I could see it all vidvoly in my mind, page by page and chapter by chapter. Simona, and CiCi were awesome charters with all their quarkeness and free spirits. They weren't going to let anyone define who or what they were. Until . . . . tall, dark and handsome walked into their lives. Awesome book!!

It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

A fantastic book. Enjoyed every bit of it. From the beginning I just knew it wasn't Sam, the father, and I also knew it wasn't Julie who trashed Noah's place. Knew it had to be the real killer. But I was SHOCKED to learn the real killer's ID. Wow, that was a shocker!! one question, what happened to Julie??

Jo Ellen Hathaway thought she had escaped the house long ago. It was where she spent her loneliest years, after her family was shattered by the sudden, unexplained disappearance of her mother.

But now, the sprawling resort off the coast of Georgia haunts her dreams. Even more haunting are the pictures that someone is sending her - strange close-ups, candid shots, and finally, the most shocking and heartbreaking portrait of all: a photograph of her long-lost mother. . . naked, beautiful, and dead.

Excellent book!! The charters were all believable people and I loved each one of them. I was totally surprised by the ending! All thru the book I had picked out different endings (like who the murder was) and I was completely shocked by the ending. I did peg the romance ending correctly and if it were any different i would have been highly disappointed. LOVED this book and I will be reading it over and over again!!!

Excellence book. The reader, Saskia Maareveld was terrific! It saddened the deepest parts of my heart to visualize the enormous pain the Alice girls went thru once they were caught spying in WW1. To call them brave is a huge understatement. And Charlie's devotion to find her cousin in this war ripped country was true love. But the ending was perfect, perfect in every way!!!
