Graeme Cameron I may not remember everything, but I know he won’t hurt anyone else.
I won’t let him.
It’s been two months since a serial killer brutally attacked police detective Alisha Green and left her for dead. Two months since she could effortlessly recall simple things, since her mind felt remotely sound. The nameless killer thinks he knows her, thinks she’s just another dead girl among many. Ali Green plans to show him he’s dead wrong about that.
Ali has two enemies now: the dangerous man she’s hunting and her own failing memory. As explosive new evidence comes to light and conflicting accounts from a witness and a surviving victim threaten both her investigation and her credibility, she begins to question what is and isn’t real. And now Ali has no choice but to remember the past…before it buries her.
A hypnotically gripping thriller that proves international bestselling author Graeme Cameron is one of the most unique voices in contemporary fiction today.

DON’T YOU CRY
In downtown Chicago, Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her roommate Quinn to question how well she really knew her friend. Meanwhile, in a small town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more sinister.
As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger’s spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us.
THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE
It happens quietly one hot August morning in Iowa: two families awaken to find their little girls have gone missing in the night.
Seven-year-old Calli Clark suffers from selective mutism brought on by a tragedy when she was a toddler. Petra Gregory is Calli’s best friend—and her voice. But neither girl has been heard from since they vanished.
Now, Calli and Petra’s parents are tied by the question of what happened to their children. And the answer is trapped in the silence of unspoken family secrets.
He lives on your street, in a nice house with a tidy garden.
He shops at your local supermarket. He drives beside you on the highway, waving to let you into the lane ahead of him.
He also has an elaborate cage in a secret basement under his garage.
The food he’s carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he’s holding there against her will—one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her.
This is how it’s been for a long time. It’s normal…and it works. Perfectly.
But this time it’s different…
BEST DAY EVER
Paul Strom is the perfect husband: breadwinner, protector, provider. That’s why he’s planned a romantic weekend for his wife, Mia, at their lake house, just the two of them. And he’s promised today will be the best day ever.
But as Paul and Mia drive out of the city and toward the countryside, a spike of tension begins to wedge itself between them and doubts start to arise. How much do they trust each other? And how perfect is their marriage, or any marriage, really?
Forcing us to ask ourselves just how well we know those who are closest to us, Best Day Ever is a gripping, tautly suspenseful tale of deception and betrayal dark enough to destroy a marriage…or a life.

mijasz go w drodze do pracy. Mieszka w domku z zadbanym ogródkiem, tak jak ty
robi zakupy w osiedlowym sklepie. Miły, zawsze grzeczny i uśmiechnięty. Na
pozór przeciętny, może nawet nudny.
wie, że od lat morduje młode kobiety. Wyrusza na polowanie jak drapieżnik,
starannie wybiera ofiary. Przetrzymuje je w klatce, a potem zabija, bo tylko
dzięki temu odzyskuje spokój. Taki zwykły seryjny morderca.
czuje, że już czas znów zaatakować. Ale po raz pierwszy precyzyjny plan
zawodzi, a sytuacja zupełnie wymyka się spod kontroli…
Graeme Cameron Vive nella vostra comunità, in una bella casa, con un giardino ben tenuto. Fa la spesa nel vostro negozio di fiducia, e se vi urta una spalla si scusa con sorriso. Se è incolonnato di fianco a voi in autostrada, vi lascia passare con un gentile gesto della mano. Quello che non sapete, di lui, è che sotto il garage, in una stanza segreta, possiede una gabbia elaborata, e quel cibo che sta pagando alla cassa è per la ragazza che tiene chiusa lì dentro contro la sua volontà. Una di una lunga lista, e non sa che cosa la aspetta. È così da molto tempo. È normale, e funziona alla perfezione. Poi incontra la cassiera dell'alimentari aperto 24 ore su 24 e tutto cambia. A quel punto il piano, la caccia, la stanza... le altre non gli servono più. Ha bisogno solo di lei. Ma proprio quando decide di redimersi, la polizia gli sta con il fiato sul collo. Lui potrebbe anche riuscire a nascondere le proprie tracce, se non fosse per un piccolo particolare: c'è ancora qualcuno della sua gabbia.
