Apple, Massachusetts, is rotten to the core. Every fall, when the orchards ripen and the leaves begin to die, there are murders. We know it, and we accept it. It's the price we pay for living in Apple. Families mourn, but no one is ever caught. Now, there's a body in the woods, and the cycle is starting again. People bruise easily in Apple. Finding a murdered and mutilated girl plunges Jackson Gill into the middle of a decades-old horror. For Jackson, the newest murders become personal.

Jon does a great job narrating Each character young and old

Zach Monaghan just became a target. Under witness protection from his father’s whistle-blowing, his reckless desire to win back a normal life compels him to run away. But escaping his new identity won’t last long if two contract killers catch up to him. Richard “Birdman” Byrd has worked hand-in-hand with his tormentor Gorski for years. Siphoning away money and sending assassins to hunt down the Monaghans could be his only way out of the crooked partnership. But if Birdman doesn’t watch himself, the verbal abuse he’s received for years could turn deadly.

The Vietnam War has ended at last, leaving both sides to question what they’d been fighting for. It seems that no one has won at all, and horrors remain, like so many landmines. Many of the homecoming "heroes" have committed crimes against humanity...but now they wear medals, not manacles. Having lost his entire family to a unit of rogue Marines, Xuan Lang is only beginning to pick up the pieces. Assembling them won’t be easy and nothing can bring back what was taken - but, even so, his efforts may afford him final peace....

The Trouble with Liam is a powerful psychological thriller set in Ireland and Sheffield. It tells the story of the life of Liam O’Sullivan in all its twisted glory. It begins with tales of his challenging childhood in Dublin and follows him through the sometimes tragic events which change him into a misogynistic, controlling, ultimately lethal bully living in Sheffield.

On February 29, 2000, John Price took out a restraining order against his girlfriend, Katherine Knight. Later that day, he told his coworkers she had stabbed him and that if he were ever to go missing, it was because Knight had killed him. The next day, Price didn’t show up for work. A coworker was sent to check on him. They found a bloody handprint by the front door, and they immediately contacted the police. The local police force was not prepared for the chilling scene they were about to encounter.

I liked the way Ryan told the story of Katharine and her messed up family
What’s really crazy is what she gets away with and the amount of abuse the men in her life take from her only to go back time after time
Interesting with good narration

A peculiar explorer and downtrodden acrobat span the globe on a building-size hot air balloon, in search of a precious artifact and the murderous treasure hunter who seeks it. Beatrix, a spirited but abused acrobat in a traveling circus, seeks more than her prison-like employment offers. More than anything, she wants to know her place in the world of the halcyon 19th century, a time when the last dark corners of the map were being sketched out and travel still possessed a kind of magic.
