    In this time-slip romantic mystery, a captivating painting connects a young woman to her new artist beau—and to a Victorian diary full of haunting secrets.   While visiting London’s Tate Britain museum, Cori Keeling can’t take her eyes off her favorite pre-Raphaelite painting: John Everett Millais’s Ophelia. But it’s Cori herself who catches the eye of gallery worker and aspiring artist Simon Daniels. He’s immediately struck by Cori’s resemblance to the red-haired beauty in the nineteenth-century masterwork.   Though the painting draws Cori and Simon together, its Cori who becomes obsessed with its haunting subject. Her determination to learn more leads to a mysterious, century-old diary—one kept by a woman named Daisy who hid a shocking secret in its pages. The further Cori reads, the clearer it becomes that Daisy will stop at nothing to be heard—and that she’s crying out for Cori to help her.   As the ghosts of the past envelop Cori and Simon, they’ll discover the truth about the girl in the painting, the woman in the diary—and Cori’s own chilling connection to both of them.

    “A fantastically tightly written, read-every-word novel . . . As a psychological thriller, it’s as close to wonderful as anything I’ve recently read” (The Guardian).   In the winter of 1881, John Stannard, a young architect, is in self-imposed exile in a remote English village, carrying out repairs to the parish church. Arrogant and insensitive to what he considers superstition and sentimental attachment to the past, he soon begins to inflict serious damage on the ancient building as well as on those with whom he comes into contact—most notably the beautiful, ambitious, local girl Ann Rosewell. This is the mesmerizing tale of a man who clings ferociously to his warped notion of civilized behavior, unwilling to admit his need for love. Set in a vividly evoked landscape and taut with foreboding, Jem Poster’s striking first novel pits reason against emotion, progress against preservation, and explores our capacity for invention and self-delusion—the stories we tell each other and the stories we tell ourselves.   “[A] dazzling debut . . . Wholly involving from start to finish.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)   “Written in lavishly beautiful prose, this is a consistently tense tale of rationality, self-delusion, and epidemic superstition.” —Booklist

    “But Catherine did not know her own advantages - did not know that a good-looking girl, with an affectionate heart and a very ignorant mind, cannot fail of attracting a clever young man, unless circumstances are particularly untoward.”Catherine Moreland is an average seventeen-year-old. She is an avid reader, a lover of sports and an imaginative young woman. She is at the age that ladies of her era are meant to be participating in courtship and settling into a new family to live a life of ease.Catherine’s favorite genre to read is gothic fiction, a romanticized, dark and mysterious genre. As Catherine grows older and begins to meet more of the world outside of her family to increase her social circle, her imagination begins to get the better of her. Everyday scenarios become romanticized and dramatic, natural deaths become mysterious, and innocent motives are questioned as Catherine fancies herself a character in a Gothic drama. Catherine’s naivete and escapism are what holds her back from maturing into an adult.Northanger Abbey was Jane Austen’s satirical take on the popular gothic fiction of her days, and was published posthumously along with Persuasion. The book’s witty parody of the genre is humorous and self-referential at times. This is a classic coming of age story blended with over-the-top drama, fascinating characters, and Jane Austen’s eloquence.

    A “profoundly creepy and creepily convincing thriller” of religious fanatics and hoax debunkers from the Edgar Award–winning author of Hanging Hill (Publishers Weekly, starred review)   Journalist Joe Oakes makes a living exposing supernatural hoaxes, but when he visits a secretive religious community on a remote Scottish island, everything he thought he knew is overturned.   Following the trail of a strange creature caught briefly on film, so deformed it can hardly be human, Oakes crosses a border of electrical fencing, toxin-filled oil drums, and pig skulls to infiltrate the territory of the groups’ isolated founder, Malachi Dove. Their confrontation, and its violent aftermath, is so catastrophic that it forces Oakes to question the nature of evil—and whether he might be responsible for the heinous crime about to unfold . . .   This latest entry from the acclaimed British author of the Jack Caffery novels “taps into the current fascination with all things supernatural and questions our assumptions about a number of subjects, from faith healing to cultish religious groups and society’s definition of evil” (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review).   “[Hayder] remains one of our most adventurous, unpredictable and ambitious writers.” —The Guardian   “Hayder offers both a riveting story and a nuanced, distinctly modern look at secrecy and publicity, belief and skepticism, normal and taboo, (in)sight and blindness.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review   “An adventurous, edgy, literate writer.” —Kirkus Reviews
