Relic
by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

About the Book:
Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human... But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Now museum researcher Margo Green must find out who — or what — is doing the killing. But can she do it in time to stop the massacre?

Gideon's Corpse
by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

About the Book:
A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff.

A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before.

Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse—far worse—than mere Armageddon.

Chills
by Rick Hautala

About the Book:
A blizzard is slamming into Vermont, but it doesn't matter to Meg Clarke. She knows she'll be trapped in her music store in the shopping mall overnight with a small crew of her employees doing one final inventory.

But after they're locked in for the night, they realize this isn't a normal winter storm. Ghastly faces appear in the store windows and disappear in a swirl of wind-blown snow. Dark, mysterious figures loom in and out of sight in the darkened corridors of the mall. Ghostly voices shriek inside the howling blasts of winter wind. Soon Meg and the others are besieged by something too terrifying to imagine.

Before the night is over, a terrible secret from Meg's past will come back to haunt her and the group's only chance to survive will be to go out into the raging storm that's trying to kill them...
