Summary

The search for a missing baby unmasks a sadistic killer . . . “A compelling new voice in thriller writing.” —Jeffery Deaver, New York Times–bestselling author of The Never Game   Lucy Guardino has fought and defeated evil before—but nothing like the case Dr. Cassandra Hart brings to the Beacon Falls team: a missing infant, his mother dead. Alina was only nineteen, full of hope—despite being raped, left for dead, and finding herself pregnant with the rapist’s child. Then Alina kills herself. The world thinks she also killed her newborn baby. No one will investigate further, not without forensic evidence. No one believes there is a link between Alina’s case and the brutal murders of other women. No one except Dr. Cassandra Hart and former FBI Special Agent Lucy Guardino. Two women, both fiercely passionate about justice for the victims they serve. And both just as determined to defeat the evil stalking the streets of Pittsburgh, even if it means risking everything. But when justice fails them, where will they draw the line? Is there ever a time when taking the law into their own hands is the lesser evil?Praise for CJ Lyons’ Thrillers with Heart: “A high stakes adventure with dire consequences.” —Steve Berry, New York Times–bestselling author of The Kaiser’s Web “Everything a great thriller should be—action packed, authentic, and intense.” — Lee Child, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels “Highly engaging characters, heart-stopping scenes . . . one great rollercoaster ride.” —Bookreporter “Hypnotic.” —National Examiner

    An unsolved case once tore this sheriff’s town apart. Now it’s about to destroy his life in this riveting thriller—first in the Target: Timberline series. 
     
    When two children go missing, every parent’s worst fear becomes Sheriff Cooper Sloane’s reality. The single father doesn’t have a minute to waste and only a single lead: Kendall Rush, a woman who survived a similar abduction twenty-five years ago. Her twin sister was not so lucky. 
     
    Kendall’s return to Timberline has stirred up a lot of town chatter. Despite her tragic past, Cooper is more than willing to play the bad guy to get her to remember any tiny detail that could help. But he can’t prepare himself for her vulnerability, or determination. As the kidnapper’s taunts turn horrific, Cooper and Kendall must stop this sick game before it hits even closer to home . . .

    A woman at her wit’s end discovers that a little attitude goes a long way in this small-town Southern romantic comedy. 
     
    Marilee Abernathy’s life is a mess. Everyone in Chickpea, South Carolina, knows about her husband’s affair with the town floozy. Even her dignified farewell—complete with pearls and impeccably applied Mary Kay cosmetics—turns into to a spectacularly unsuccessful attempt to hang herself from a fake ceiling beam. Now Marilee figures there must be a better way to cope. 
     
    All she needs is a new attitude—at least that’s what Marilee’s neighbor Sam Brewer thinks. Unfortunately, between his demanding mother and his crazy ex-wife, he’s in no position to help her find one. Even still, Marilee starts taking charge and taking chances she’d never imagined. And watching her blossom reminds Sam of some long-forgotten dreams of his own. Now he’s just got to convince her to turn some of that attitude his way . . .

    “Chilling forensics, riveting suspense sequences, grisly details, and a diabolical villain . . . [a] standout thriller.” —Kirkus Reviews   NYPD’s top cop, Homicide Commander Lt. John Driscoll, believes there’s a sociopathic killer on the loose murdering prostitutes in New York City—someone who calls himself “Tilden” and claims to have been sexually abused as a child by his mother’s john.   But he soon discovers Tilden’s not a run-of-the-mill sociopath. After all, would a common murderer have taken the time to embalm his victims, which the city’s chief medical examiner determined was the cause of their deaths?   Driscoll, a man haunted by the events of an unstable childhood himself, must put aside any sympathy he may have for Tilden and put a stop to his murderous rampage. Teamed up with Sgt. Margaret Aligante and Det. Cedric Thomlinson, who have their own issues to deal with, the commander sets out to bring Tilden to justice before he kills again . . .   “O'Callaghan is back with a vengeance . . . a complex but nuanced thriller that grabs you by the throat and never lets go.” —Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of If You Tell and Water’s Edge
