Winter's Mourn Book Review:

A killer is watching... Thirteen years ago, Winter Black came home early from a sleepover to find her parents brutally murdered and her little brother gone-taken by a serial killer called The Preacher. Now a rookie FBI agent assigned to her first murder case, Winter has returned to the small Virginia town where she grew up. But when bones found by a hunter lead to the discovery of a secret burial ground containing the remains of children, the investigation suddenly hits close to home as the past and future collide with each new shocking discovery. Will they find her brother's bones in the makeshift graveyard next? Only The Preacher knows, and he'll do anything to keep the past-and its secrets-buried until he's ready to make his final move. A masterfully conceived psychological thriller reminiscent of Lisa Jackson, Harlan Coben, and Karin Slaughter, Winter's Mourn will keep readers turning the pages-and watching the window-long past midnight.

He's killing again. He's killing Winter...over and over.

Special Agent Winter Black has spent her entire life preparing for this moment, and she intends to see it through--no matter the cost. When she's taken off the case, that cost just might be her FBI career. She doesn't care. Winter won't stop until she ends the man responsible for destroying her family. And since she isn't sure who she can trust anymore, she plans to do it alone. It doesn't take Winter long to discover that The Preacher isn't after just another victim. He's after her. And he won't let anything get in the way of his sadistic plans.

Winter's Storm Book Review:

They survived, but survival won't save them. When the survivors of the massacre at the Riverside Mall are murdered one after the other, the police suspect a serial killer and turn to the FBI. Winter Black is on the case, working to track down the third person involved in the mass shooting that happened the same night she took down The Preacher, the man who killed her parents. The hit list is long while the list of suspects is short, and when the killer ends up dead, the suspect list narrows down to a pinpoint. The path to solving the case grows even more twisted, and protecting the survivors feels nearly impossible as the storm of hate grows bigger, more fierce as it moves closer to Winter, taking down anyone within its path. Who is this assassin? Are they intent on simply finishing what Tyler Haldane and Kent Strickland started, or is it worse? Do they intend to finish what The Preacher started as well? And where does Justin, Winter's baby brother, fit in? Is he the storm, or is he simply caught up in its force? Book eight of Mary Stone's riveting Winter Black Series, Winter's Storm, delves into a darkness we hope doesn't exist and brings it close enough to feel its chill.

In the Midst of Winter Book Review:

New York Times and worldwide bestselling “dazzling storyteller” (Associated Press) Isabel Allende returns with a sweeping novel about three very different people who are brought together in a mesmerizing story that journeys from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil. In the Midst of Winter begins with a minor traffic accident—which becomes the catalyst for an unexpected and moving love story between two people who thought they were deep into the winter of their lives. Richard Bowmaster—a 60-year-old human rights scholar—hits the car of Evelyn Ortega—a young, undocumented immigrant from Guatemala—in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn. What at first seems just a small inconvenience takes an unforeseen and far more serious turn when Evelyn turns up at the professor’s house seeking help. At a loss, the professor asks his tenant Lucia Maraz—a 62-year-old lecturer from Chile—for her advice. These three very different people are brought together in a mesmerizing story that moves from present-day Brooklyn to Guatemala in the recent past to 1970s Chile and Brazil, sparking the beginning of a long overdue love story between Richard and Lucia. Exploring the timely issues of human rights and the plight of immigrants and refugees, the book recalls Allende’s landmark novel The House of the Spirits in the way it embraces the cause of “humanity, and it does so with passion, humor, and wisdom that transcend politics” (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post). In the Midst of Winter will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

Winter's Secret Book Review:

Some secrets hurt; others can kill... The Preacher is dead, the case solved, but now Special Agent Winter Black's missing brother seems to be taunting her, leaving a trail that leads back to their old house in Harrisonburg. As she learns more, Winter must fight the urge to revert back to that primal part of herself that was set on secrecy and vengeance during the investigation of her parents' murder. Especially now that her best friend and partner, Noah Dalton's, own past has come back to play. Noah's father, Eric, has borrowed money from the Russian mob, but won't give the FBI the whole story, even though his daughter and son-in-law have been kidnapped and the clock is ticking on their lives. What is he hiding? And who will pay the price? A dirty cop, a RICO case, and more lies than truth. Can Winter and Noah sort out the pieces and put the puzzle together before the hostages' expiration date? Or has it been too late from the beginning? Book six of Mary Stone's page-turning Winter Black Series, Winter's Secret is a twisty, roller-coaster of a ride that doesn't let up until the very last page. Scroll up to one-click your copy today!

Winter's Ghost Book Review:

Some ghosts still live and breathe... Six months ago, on the night Winter Black and her fellow agents took down The Preacher, a mall massacre occurred. Today, one of the gunmen responsible for taking fifteen innocent lives that night is killed-with a well-placed bullet fired from nearly a mile away. Clearly a professional, either military or law enforcement, the sniper leaves zero evidence, other than a note. When more suspected rapists and murderers turn up dead, the killer's pattern becomes clear: they're acting as judge, jury, and executioner for a series of cases that were brushed off by the cops. How could a person not cheer a little? Until the spotlight is shone on one of the FBI's own. Ultimately, it's a matter of right or wrong. Winter knows just where the line is-she learned the night her parents were slaughtered and her baby brother disappeared. After all, that night made her who she is, and she'll uphold the law, even for the scumbags who deserve to die. Even while the ghosts of her past grow closer and closer. Book five of Mary Stone's breakthrough Winter Black series, Winter's Ghost is an ingeniously conceived psychological thriller that will keep readers enthralled while making sure their door is locked-and pick proof.

Winter's Rise Book Review:

One dead. One risen. One caught in between. For more than thirteen years, Winter Black has believed her little brother is dead--kidnapped and murdered by the same lunatic who killed her parents. The news of a lead into Justin's whereabouts brings her out of her hiatus and back to work at the Richmond FBI office. And face to face with the co-workers she's been avoiding. Winter can't avoid them for long because a body is discovered in a fifty-five-gallon drum, and the team soon realizes that they aren't hunting your typical serial killer. Whoever killed this man isn't just a murderer--they are a skilled surgeon, and John Doe is just one of many. And now, the killer is after her friend, Autumn.

The Winter of the Witch Book Review:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Following their adventures in The Bear and the Nightingale and The Girl in the Tower, Vasya and Morozko return in this stunning conclusion to the bestselling Winternight Trilogy, battling enemies mortal and magical to save both Russias, the seen and the unseen. “A tale both intimate and epic, featuring a heroine whose harrowing and wondrous journey culminates in an emotionally resonant finale.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) Vasilisa Petrovna is an unforgettable heroine determined to forge her own path. Her gifts and her courage have drawn the attention of Morozko, the winter-king, but it is too soon to know if this connection will prove a blessing or a curse. Now Moscow has been struck by disaster. Its people are searching for answers—and for someone to blame. Vasya finds herself alone, beset on all sides. The Grand Prince is in a rage, choosing allies that will lead him on a path to war and ruin. A wicked demon returns, determined to spread chaos. Caught at the center of the conflict is Vasya, who finds the fate of two worlds resting on her shoulders. Her destiny uncertain, Vasya will uncover surprising truths about herself as she desperately tries to save Russia, Morozko, and the magical world she treasures. But she may not be able to save them all. Praise for The Winter of the Witch “Katherine Arden’s Winternight Trilogy isn’t just good—it’s hug-to-your-chest, straight-to-the-favorites-shelf, reread-immediately good, and each book just gets better. The Winter of the Witch plunges us back to fourteenth-century Moscow, where old gods and new vie for the soul of Russia and fate rests on a witch girl’s slender shoulders. Prepare to have your heart ripped out, loaned back to you full of snow and magic, and ripped out some more.”—Laini Taylor “Luxuriously detailed yet briskly suspenseful . . . a striking literary fantasy informed by Arden’s deep knowledge.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The Winter Girl Book Review:

“A marital thriller more scary than Gone Girl." —The Washington Post A scathing and exhilarating thriller that begins with a husband's obsession with the seemingly vacant house next door. It's wintertime in the Hamptons, where Scott and his wife, Elise, have come to be with her terminally ill father, Victor, to await the inevitable. As weeks turn to months, their daily routine—Elise at the hospital with her father, Scott pretending to work and drinking Victor's booze—only highlights their growing resentment and dissatisfaction with the usual litany of unhappy marriages: work, love, passion, each other. But then Scott notices something simple, even innocuous. Every night at precisely eleven, the lights in the neighbor's bedroom turn off. It's clearly a timer . . .but in the dead of winter with no one else around, there's something about that light he can't let go of. So one day while Elise is at the hospital, he breaks in. And he feels a jolt of excitement he hasn't felt in a long time. Soon, it's not hard to enlist his wife as a partner in crime and see if they can't restart the passion. Their one simple transgression quickly sends husband and wife down a deliriously wicked spiral of bad decisions, infidelities, escalating violence, and absolutely shocking revelations. Matt Marinovich makes a strong statement with this novel. The Winter Girl is the psychological thriller done to absolute perfection. From the Hardcover edition.

From one of Ireland's most grindingly authentic and radically original talents, Room Little Darker explores the clandestine aspects of modern life through jagged, visceral tales of wanton sex, broken relationships and futuristic nightmares. An abusive father haunts his daughter and wife from the confines of a nursing home;a couple with an appetite for S&M discover their escapades have led them into something unimaginably bleak;a desperate addict scours the depths of degradation in a nightmare Dublin;an unborn foetus narrates her torturous experience of the Irish legal system;a paedophile acquires a robotic little boy as part of his sex therapy. At once hilarious and profoundly moving, Caldwell's stories probe sexuality and disturbing psychology, and the darkess and light that lives within us all.

Hope Draped in Black Book Review:

In Hope Draped in Black Joseph R. Winters responds to the enduring belief that America follows a constant trajectory of racial progress. Such notions—like those that suggested the passage into a postracial era following Barack Obama's election—gloss over the history of racial violence and oppression to create an imaginary and self-congratulatory world where painful memories are conveniently forgotten. In place of these narratives, Winters advocates for an idea of hope that is predicated on a continuous engagement with loss and melancholy. Signaling a heightened sensitivity to the suffering of others, melancholy disconcerts us and allows us to cut against dominant narratives and identities. Winters identifies a black literary and aesthetic tradition in the work of intellectuals, writers, and artists such as W. E. B. Du Bois, Ralph Ellison, Toni Morrison, and Charles Burnett that often underscores melancholy, remembrance, loss, and tragedy in ways that gesture toward such a conception of hope. Winters also draws on Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno to highlight how remembering and mourning the uncomfortable dimensions of American social life can provide alternate sources for hope and imagination that might lead to building a better world.
