Men and women are turning up dead in the outskirts of Seattle, poisoned by a mysterious chemical. When a pattern is discovered and it becomes clear that a twisted serial killer is on the hunt, the FBI calls in their best asset: Special Agent Riley Paige. Riley is urged to return to the line of duty—but Riley, still reeling from the attacks on her family, is loath to return. Yet as bodies mount, and the murders become more inexplicable, Riley knows she has no choice.

The case takes Riley deep into the unsettling world of nursing homes, of hospitals, of drifting caretakers and psychotic patients. As Riley delves deeper into the mind of the murderer, she realizes she is hunting the most terrifying killer of all: one whose madness knows no depths—and yet who may just appear shockingly ordinary.

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE PINED is book #6 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #7 in the Riley Paige series will be available soon.

Lila has central air conditioning—a priceless luxury this time of year—and while Nancy doesn’t think much of her notoriously promiscuous neighbor, she would do anything to cool down. Sadly, Lila doesn’t step outside. She never will again. After more than a day without seeing her neighbor, Nancy finally goes next door and finds Lila sprawled across her bed, a knife buried deep in her chest.   When Lila’s cuckolded husband is also found dead, the police label it a tragic murder-suicide—but Nancy isn’t convinced. In this gin-soaked patch of suburbia, adultery is a way of life and jealousy isn’t reason enough for a husband to kill. As the mercury inevitably rises, so will the body count.

    In this ingenious novel, a passionate journalist takes on his city’s rampant corruption Mike Dolan is a widely read columnist, but he’s intensely frustrated by his newspaper’s attitude toward the truth. All the articles he’s most keen to run—about a rich youth escaping punishment in a drunk-driving accident, a supremacist group called the Crusaders, or a pennant-winning baseball team found to be throwing games—are precisely the ones his editor wants to shelve, caring only to keep lucrative advertising relationships intact. Dolan finally has had enough, and borrows money from friends to launch a magazine of his own. Although he’s now free to boldly speak truth to power and pursue his most important scoops, the move comes with grave consequences for his love life—and his life, period. As Dolan steps on toes and dodges fists, No Pockets in a Shroud showcases McCoy’s fast-paced, suspenseful style. This ebook features an extended biography of Horace McCoy.
