EXCEPT FOR AUDREY

Audrey's Door By Sarah Langan

 Built on the Upper West Side, the elegant Breviary claims a regal history. But despite 14B’s astonishingly low rental price, the recent tragedy within its walls has frightened away all potential tenants except for Audrey Lucas.

No stranger to tragedy at thirty-two—a survivor of a fatherless childhood and a mother’s hopeless dementia, Audrey is obsessively determined to make her own way in a city that often strangles the weak. But is it something otherworldly or Audrey’s own increasing instability that’s to blame for the dark visions that haunt her and for the voice that demands that she build a door? A door it would be true madness to open…

Six By Jack Harney

 

A year to the day after his daughter’s death, Dax is faced with two cases involving some very unique elements. His good friend and Special Victims Unit detective, Janet Meehan, asks his help to determine the identity of a serial killer who has been murdering Catholic nuns in one of the poorest areas of the Bronx but only nuns who still dress in the old style veiled habits.

At the same time, his tyrannical boss, the Police Commissioner, Jeremiah Gallagher, orders Dax to drop everything to determine why the P.C.’s daughter, a rookie cop, is suddenly suffering from episodes of near catatonia. The medical experts have determined there are no physical reasons, and the psychiatric community is baffled. The revelations, both discovered and deduced by Dax, considered by many as the Sherlock Holmes of the NYPD, never stop coming.

The Weight Of Blood By Laura McHugh

The Dane family’s roots tangle deep in the Ozark Mountain town of Henbane, but that doesn’t keep sixteen-year-old Lucy Dane from being treated like an outsider. Folks still whisper about her mother, a bewitching young stranger who inspired local myths when she vanished years ago.

When one of Lucy’s few friends, slow-minded Cheri, is found murdered, Lucy feels haunted by the two lost girls,the mother she never knew and the friend she couldn’t protect. Everything changes when Lucy stumbles across Cheri’s necklace in an abandoned trailer and finds herself drawn into a search for answers. What Lucy discovers makes it impossible to ignore the suspicion cast on her own kin.

More alarming, she suspects Cheri’s death could be linked to her mother’s disappearance, and the connection between the two puts Lucy at risk of losing everything. In a place where the bonds of blood weigh heavy, Lucy must decide where her allegiances lie.
