    From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: “Tainted love, jealousy and, brilliant revenge—this book has got the lot” (New Woman).   Thirty-eight-year-old Jules Sampson is barely getting by as a working actor in London—until she gets a job as a stand-in for American movie star Lila Dune. Being the same age and in the same business, the two hit it off, but their careers couldn’t be more different. Jules may not be as beautiful and successful as Lila, but she’s a far better actor. Her impersonation of Lila is spot-on, and the two even slip into each other’s lives. It’s all just fun and games. But Jules has made a dreadful miscalculation—one that takes her already simmering resentment of Lila to the boiling point. Consumed by jealousy, Jules is ready for her close-up—and no one is better prepared than her for her next big role . . . Taking readers on a whirlwind of madness and obsession from London to New York to Los Angeles, “Moggach’s examination of the unbalanced mind is spellbinding, and the characters horribly believable. . . . This is [her] best novel yet” (Options). “Compulsively readable . . . a triumph.” —Sunday Express “Intelligent, persuasive, sensuous, perceptive . . . what an accomplishment!” —Fay Weldon, author of The Life and Loves of a She Devil “An exciting, deftly executed thriller with considerable psychological intrigue.” — Publishers Weekly “With a marvelous snap of a windup, an absorbing, inventive chiller, complete with undertones of a sour, wry humor.” —Kirkus Reviews

    In this “profound, daring” tale of loss and faith, a woman haunted by tragedy begins to find healing in the waters—and love—that surround her (San Francisco Chronicle).   Reina Castillo’s beloved brother has been sentenced to death for an unthinkable crime that shocked the community—and Reina secretly blames herself. Devastated and grieving, Reina moves to a quiet enclave in the Florida Keys seeking anonymity and a new start, and meets Nesto Cadena, a recently exiled Cuban awaiting the arrival of the children he left behind in Havana.   Inspired by Nesto’s love of the sea and capacity for faith, Reina comes to understand her own connections to the life-giving and destructive forces of the ocean that surrounds her, as well as its role in her family’s troubled history. Against a vibrant coastal backdrop that ranges from Miami to Cartagena, Colombia, author Patricia Engel delivers a profound and riveting Pan-American story of fractured souls finding solace and redemption in the beauty and power of the natural world—and in one another.   “This is a writer who understands that exile can be as much an emotional state as a geographical one, that the agony of leaving tugs against the agony of being left behind. . . . To immerse oneself in Engel’s prose is to surrender to a seductive embrace, a hypnotic beauty that mingles submersion with submission.” —The New York Times Book Review

    Once Hunted is book #5 in the bestselling Riley Paige mystery series, which begins with the #1 bestseller Once Gone. 
    A prison break from a maximum security prison. Frantic calls from the FBI. Special Agent Riley Paige’s worst nightmare has come true: a serial killer she put away years ago is loose. 
    And his main target is her. 
    Riley is used to being the one hunting, but for the first time, she finds herself—and her family—to be the ones being hunted. As the killer stalks her, he also begins a new rampage of kills, and Riley must stop him before it is too late—for the other victims, and for herself. 
    But this is no ordinary killer. He is too smart, and their game of cat-and-mouse too twisted, and he somehow manages to elude her and always stay one step ahead. Desperate to stop him, Riley realizes there is only one way: she must delve back into the past, into this killer’s twisted mind, his old cases, and re-learn what drives him. The only way to stop him, she realizes, is to face the darkness she thought she had left behind. 
    A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, Once Hunted is book #5 in a riveting series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you listening late into the night.

Staging the crime scene so that the evidence incriminates him, he then calls the police.   And to hammer the final nail in his coffin, he hires the most inexperienced lawyer he can find, a reluctant rookie by the name of Mary Di Nunzio, employed at the hot Philadelphia firm of Rosato and Associates. 
    Unfortunately for Jack, hiring Mary may turn out to be his only mistake. 
    Though inexperienced, Mary doubts Jack's confession and begins to investigate the crime.  Her ethics and instincts tell her she can't defend a man who wants only one thing - to convict himself.  Or can she?  Smarter, gutsier, and more determined than she has any right to be, Mary decides to stock with the case.  With help from the most unexpected sources, she sets out to prove what really happened - because as any lawyer knows, a case is never as simple as it seems. 
    And nothing is ever certain until the final moment of truth.
