Ben thought that he put his past behind him, but his new life in New York becomes a nightmare when a killer starts sending him pictures of their targets. Trapped on the subway, he is forced to play a deadly game of cat and mouse, with instructions to stop them from getting off the train or else they will be killed. But the clock is ticking, and the cops want a quick resolution to what they consider a PR nightmare. And as more and more of Ben’s past comes to light, it seems like he is the perfect suspect. As his options run out, Ben joins forces with a disgraced NYPD detective to try and find the killer and stop them before they can hurt anyone else.

Perfect for fans of claustrophobic, high concept thrillers such as Falling by TJ Newman, Elevator Pitch by Linwood Barclay and The Chain by Adrian McKinty.

Brooke works hard to maintain perfect grades, perfect looks, a perfect life–especially after “the incident” that threatened everything. Getting into her dream university puts her that much closer to a fresh start. How she can’t say no to her BFF’s coaxing to celebrate the good news…even if it means returning to the same beach that she’s avoided since the incident?

Except leaving the party at the end of the night is just the beginning. A truck tails them on the two-lane highway that winds through the woods. Then tailing becomes trying to push them off the road, becomes a terror-filled chase through the dark night and Brooke’s darkest fears…

Megan Lally is a professional book coach who loves writing all things creepy and twisted. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family. That’s Not My Name was her debut.

Ruby has always dreamed of her senior class trip to Paris and is dead set on capturing original content for her travel YouTube channel while abroad. Bonus? It means she will get to spend more time with her crush/video editor Sean.

After a calm first night, Ruby’s best friend Val convinces Ruby and two other girls—including Ruby’s ex best friend and current nemesis—to sneak out of the hotel and attend a once-in-a-lifetime party with a sexy new Parisian friend, within the catacombs, the dark uncharted maze of bones beneath the streets of the City of Light.

As the group travels the miles of twisted tunnels, the eternal resting place to countless, anonymous souls, it becomes clear: they’re hopelessly lost. The deeper they venture, the darker the secrets revealed about the catacombs become. But Ruby’s biggest problem may not be the strange noises coming from those dark narrow halls or the bones of the dead fortifying the walls but instead the people she thought she could trust the most.

Diana Urban is an author of dark, twisty thrillers, including All Your Twisted Secrets (HarperTeen) and These Deadly Games (Wednesday Books, 2022). When she’s not torturing fictional characters, she works in digital marketing for startups. She lives with her husband and cat in Boston and enjoys reading, playing video games, fawning over cute animals, and looking at the beach from a safe distance.

Ella Moore was the most popular girl in school…and also the most hated. When she’s murdered at her own party, there are too many suspects to count. And too many people who think she deserved it.

The police’s prime suspect is the new girl, Dawn Foster. Dawn was the last to hand Ella a drink on the night she died. Plus, all of Ella’s friends with a motive for wanting her dead are more than willing to throw Dawn under the bus if it means keeping the heat off themselves.

But Dawn refuses to go down without a fight. She’s determined to clear her name. As she delves deeper into the past, she discovers that Ella and her friends had major enemies, and someone is out for revenge. Dawn must uncover the truth before the police arrest the wrong suspect… and before the next person dies.
