'In the autumn of 1735, Mrs. Deborah Leeds and her thirteen children experience something strange in the Pine Barrens of colonial New Jersey. Blood-curdling screams and disturbing noises are heard coming from the bedroom of Mrs. Leeds thirteenth son, Absalom. 

One week later, Mrs. Deborah Leeds and Absalom go missing. Isaiah, the oldest son of the Leeds family, claims that Absalom transformed into a Devil in the middle of the night and took their mother with him. To find Deborah and the so-called Goat-child, Absalom, the Reverend Jeremiah Barnes journeys into the Pinelands and helps the children to find their mother. 

As the Reverend is searching for the Devil, all of the Leeds children are killed, one after the other—and in the most gruesome ways imaginable. Gedaliah, the strangest son, claims to know where to find the Devil and tries to tell the Reverend the truth, but the Reverend doesn’t listen and it’s only until it’s too late that he finds the Devil’s true identity—an identity that shatters his beliefs.'

'The page-turning psychological thriller from the author of #1 bestsellers The Magpies and Because She Loves Me.

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down. But after a perfect start, an encounter with a young couple on a night train forces Daniel and Laura to cut their dream trip short and flee home.

Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what happened that night. But as they try to fit into their old lives again, they realise they are in terrible danger—and that their nightmare is just beginning…'

'When the body of a young woman is discovered in a derelict cottage in the middle of Los Angeles National Forest, Homicide Detective Robert Hunter finds himself entering a horrific and recurring nightmare. Naked, strung from two wooden posts, the victim was sadistically tortured before meeting an excruciatingly painful death. All the skin has been ripped from her face - while she was still alive. On the nape of her neck has been carved a strange double-cross: the signature of a psychopath known as the Crucifix Killer. But that's impossible. Because two years ago, the Crucifix Killer was caught and executed. Could this therefore be a copycat killer? Or could the unthinkable be true? Is the real killer still out there, ready to embark once again on a vicious and violent killing spree, selecting his victims seemingly at random, taunting Robert Hunter with his inability to catch him? Hunter and his rookie partner are about to enter a nightmare beyond imagining.'

'A freak accident in rural Wyoming leads the Sheriff's Department to arrest a man for a possible double homicide, but further investigations suggest a much more horrifying discovery - a serial killer who has been kidnapping, torturing and mutilating victims all over the United States for at least twenty-five years. The suspect claims he is a pawn in a huge labyrinth of lies and deception - and he will now only speak to Robert Hunter ...'

'The horrific murders of two prostitutes shock even the most hardened detectives of the Cheyenne Police Department. With the knowledge that karmic justice will eventually catch up to everyone, Detective Ethan Baudin and Kyle Dixon take the case.

Still reeling from the murder of his wife's lover, Detective Dixon is descending into a world of alcoholism and depression. Baudin can do little to help him, and struggles to keep his partner on the straight path while pursuing the man he holds responsible for the darkness enveloping his city: the district attorney, Mike Sandoval.

Baudin's pursuit of Sandoval must be put on hold after the detectives are assigned the murder case. Unwilling to leave Sandoval behind, Baudin resists getting involved with the murders until he discovers a link between the deaths of the two women and Sandoval.

Hunting a man that views victims as little more than meat, the two detectives begin their descent into a world they may never come out of. Unable to trust anyone else, they must learn to trust each other, or be destroyed by the forces aligned against them.'
