Three haunting novels of romantic suspense from the New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning “Queen of the American gothics” (The New York Times). A trio of spellbinding thrillers from “the Grand Master of her craft” (Barbara Michaels) and a “superb and gifted storyteller” (Mary Higgins Clark). Window on the Square: Megan Kincaid lives in a house of secrets on Washington Square in New York City. Hired by romantic and wealthy Brandon Reid as his stepson’s caretaker, she knows the boy’s violent history—one the Reid family has tried to bury. But their mysterious past runs deeper and more dangerous than she realized. Now, as Megan slowly unravels the truth behind a tragic murder, she’s torn between a child she must save, a man she’s come to love, and the desire to run for her life. Thunder Heights: Camilla King has received a startling invitation: Her wealthy and estranged grandfather wants her to return to the mansion on the Hudson where her mother suffered a mysterious death. Camilla complies, partly to meet the family she never had, and partly because of whispers of an inheritance. But a series of suspicious accidents lead Camilla to fear that her homecoming may be a carefully designed trap—the same one her own mother fell prey to many years ago. The Golden Unicorn: After the death of her adoptive parents, Courtney Marsh is determined to uncover her past. The only clues are a unicorn pendant she’s had all her life and a newspaper clipping about a prominent yet reclusive East Hampton family. Under the guise of a reporter, she’s arrived at the Rhodes’s mansion to find the truth of her heritage. But the more Courtney discovers, the more she fears—because hers is a legacy of murder that has yet to play its final hand.

From a New York Times–bestselling author: A young woman’s search for her biological parents uncovers a secret history of murder and conspiracy. When her adoptive parents die in a train crash in Italy, writer Courtney Marsh becomes more determined than ever to find her roots. She was mysteriously abandoned when she was just an infant, and she never knew the truth about her biological parents. The only clues to her past are a golden unicorn pendant she’s had all her life and a tattered newspaper clipping about an artist who hailed from one of the most prominent yet reclusive East Hampton families. Now, under the guise of a reporter, Courtney has arrived at the Rhodes’s mansion on the dunes. She may be uncertain of her heritage, but she’s as sure as the bracing ocean winds that this family is hiding something. Only the handsome son-in-law of the Rhodes clan, whose marriage is on the rocks, is particularly forthcoming—especially as he grows more intimately fond of the lovely and inquisitive young guest. But the more Courtney discovers, the more she has to fear—because hers is a legacy of murder that has yet to play its final hand. The Golden Unicorn is a novel of buried family secrets in the New York art world from “a superb and gifted storyteller” (Mary Higgins Clark).

From the “Queen of the American gothics”: In turn-of-the-century New York, a strange inheritance lures a vulnerable governess into a trap (The New York Times). Camilla King knows little of her family history, having never met her estranged relatives. Her late father wanted it that way. But when she receives a startling invitation from her immeasurably wealthy and ailing grandfather, Orrin Judd, to return to Thunder Heights, the crumbling mansion on the Hudson where her mother died under mysterious circumstances, Camilla complies, partly out of curiosity for the family she never had, and partly because of whispers of an inheritance. What she finds there is a demanding and unwelcoming tyrant, two wraithlike aunts haunted by an unnamable grief, a cunning idler living off the Judd fortune, and her grandfather’s rigid and suspicious aide. When a series of accidents befall Camilla, she has reason to fear her homecoming may be a carefully designed trap—the same one her own mother fell prey to many years ago. New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning author Phyllis A. Whitney “is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft” (Barbara Michaels).

From a New York Times–bestselling author: After the Civil War, a young Confederate bride finds herself living in the shadow of her husband’s first love. Having lost her fiancé in battle, Lora Blair knew it was the heartache of war, not true love, that drew her to Union soldier Wade Taylor, a grieving widower who still mourned his late wife, Virginia. Married quickly in the ravished little Southern border town where Lora was born, they headed back North to Wade’s Staten Island mansion, where he lives with his motherless son and bitterly unwelcoming family. It’s not just Lora’s Southern roots among wealthy Yankees that are met with severe disapproval. Lora knows that she’ll forever be in the shadow of Wade’s adored, devotedly maternal, and peerlessly beautiful first wife. Though her most dangerous opposition is yet to come, Lora must face the secrets hidden in the Taylors’ past—including those Virginia took with her to an early grave. The recipient of the Agatha Award for Lifetime Achievement, Phyllis A. Whitney is “a superb and gifted storyteller” (Mary Higgins Clark). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A.

The chance for a new beginning makes the offer of a job on the West Coast an easy decision for Cole. From the start, Cole is thrown into an investigation of the brutal killing of three little girls in San Francisco. Moving from his home in Chicago is the bittersweet closing of one chapter in Cole's life and beginning of a new one. Before he can say good-bye to the Windy City, the call for help from an old friend pits Cole against the seedy underworld of pornography and child abduction. This tale of two cities will put Cole's investigative skills to the ultimate test - and will force him to put his loyalty to his friends above the law. Chicago and San Francisco are connected by a thread of perversity and a pair of evil pedophiles with no respect for life, family or the innocence of children.

An Edgar Award finalist for Best Fact Crime, this “impressive…open-eyed investigative inquiry wrapped within a cultural history of rural America” (The Wall Street Journal) shows legendary statistician and baseball writer Bill James applying his analytical acumen to crack an unsolved century-old mystery surrounding one of the deadliest serial killers in American history. Between 1898 and 1912, families across the country were bludgeoned in their sleep with the blunt side of an axe. Some of these cases—like the infamous Villisca, Iowa, murders—received national attention. But most incidents went almost unnoticed outside the communities in which they occurred. Few people believed the crimes were related. And fewer still would realize that all of these families lived within walking distance to a train station. When celebrated true crime expert Bill James first learned about these horrors, he began to investigate others that might fit the same pattern. Applying the same know-how he brings to his legendary baseball analysis, he empirically determined which crimes were committed by the same person. Then after sifting through thousands of local newspapers, court transcripts, and public records, he and his daughter Rachel made an astonishing discovery: they learned the true identity of this monstrous criminal and uncovered one of the deadliest serial killers in America. “A suspenseful historical account” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), The Man from the Train paints a vivid, psychologically perceptive portrait of America at the dawn of the twentieth century, when crime was regarded as a local problem, and opportunistic private detectives exploited a dysfunctional judicial system. James shows how these cultural factors enabled such an unspeakable series of crimes to occur, and his groundbreaking approach to true crime will convince skeptics, amaze aficionados, and change the way we view criminal history. “A beautifully written and extraordinarily researched narrative…This is no pure whodunit, but rather a how-many-did-he-do” (Buffalo News).

A Chicago department store is the scene of gruesome crime in this mystery by a New York Times–bestselling Edgar Award winner. Linell Wynn, copywriter for Chicago department store Cunningham’s, knows how to put a clever spin on everything. But she’s at a loss for words when, after closing time, she finds a corpse in a window display. There he is, as cold and lifeless as a mannequin, his skull pulverized with a golf club: valued store manager Michael “Monty” Montgomery. And while red might be the color for the new spring season, Linell never expected to see quite so much of it . . . Linell had a history with the too-charming-to-be-believed victim—and being intimately acquainted with his cruel side has made her a suspect in his murder. But as everyone at Cunningham’s knows, finding someone who didn’t want Monty dead would be tough. When a second murder throws the store detective off track, Linell is plunged into the investigation. Now, she’s working after hours to find a killer, and she has more to lose than her job. The recipient of an Agatha Award for Lifetime Achievement, “Phyllis Whitney is, and always will be, the Grand Master of her craft” (Barbara Michaels).
