The Slave Tree
by Alan Peter Ryan

About the Book:

Murder As a Fine Art

Murder as a Fine Art
by David Morrell

About the Book:
GASLIT LONDON IS BROUGHT TO ITS KNEES IN DAVID MORRELL'S BRILLIANT HISTORICAL THRILLER.

Thomas De Quincey, infamous for his memoir Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, is the major suspect in a series of ferocious mass murders identical to ones that terrorized London forty-three years earlier.

The blueprint for the killings seems to be De Quincey's essay "On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts." Desperate to clear his name but crippled by opium addiction, De Quincey is aided by his devoted daughter Emily and a pair of determined Scotland Yard detectives.

In Murder as a Fine Art, David Morrell plucks De Quincey, Victorian London, and the Ratcliffe Highway murders from history. Fogbound streets become a battleground between a literary star and a brilliant murderer, whose lives are linked by secrets long buried but never forgotten...

Stephen King says: "Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre."

Gone Girl: The Deluxe Signed & Slipcased Special Limited Edition
by Gillian Flynn

About the Book:
Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn, takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. As The Washington Post proclaimed, her work "draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction." Gone Girl's toxic mix of sharp-edged wit with deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when

Backshot (2012)
by Tom Piccirilli

About the Book:
Only one gig had gone bad in Royce's twenty-year career, but it had ended just about as badly as possible, with his back broken and him in jail.

A specialist said it would be a year before he'd walk again, if then. Royce took this news as a personal challenge and let his concentration begin to harden. He fixed his will and figured he'd be on his feet in six months. He set a clock inside his head and started the countdown.

At night, when everyone else was asleep, Royce practiced with the two-inch blade he had smuggled in with him. He'd always been good with a knife.

Now Royce just had to get back on his feet and stay alive, and then he could have his revenge...

Backshot (1902)
by Ed Gorman

About the Book:
In the tradition of Charles Willeford's western noirs, Ed Gorman gives us the mining town of Granite Bend, where mining interests run the often violent lives of its citizens as we see first-hand when the fates of Marshal Royce and a young drifter intersect. Gorman's portrait of the West is a real one, not a mythic one. He paints the people and their era with page-turning incidents of brutality and intrigue offering us compelling monsters and victims alike.

Praise & Reviews:
"Gorman's a master of this kind of story. People aren't what they seem, and Gorman can make even the worst of them seem almost human. There's a special kind of darkness that's revealed as the story goes along, and Gorman manages it well. The setting is winter, and the weather plays a part in the story. It's done so well that you might want to wrap up in your Snuggi

The Night of the Triffids
by Simon Clark

About the Book:
The Day of the Triffids, John Wyndham's classic bestseller, is one man's description of doomsday: almost the entire population has gone blind, and the world has a new master—the monstrous triffid plant. The novel ends with its narrator, Bill Masen, leaving the British mainland with his wife and son to join a new colony on the Isle of Wight.

In The Night of the Triffids, which takes place in the 29th year since the fall of the old world, David Masen, Bill's now grown–up son, wakes one morning to discover that the world has been plunged into darkness. The few sighted people have their artificial lights, but once more the triffid has the advantage. Setting off to find the cause of the darkness, David finds himself stranded.

Eventually rescued and taken to New York, he discovers a very different sort of colony, prosperous and technologically advanced. But this sophist
