Second Sight, by Aoife Clifford
When the biggest legal case in her career brings Eliza Carmody back to Kinsale, the hometown she thought she had left forever, she witnesses an old friend commit a crime that sends her on a dangerous quest to uncover the mysteries of her childhood that the rest of the town seems willing to ignore. With her friend on the run and the police investigating the bones of an unidentified dead body at a historic homestead near town, Eliza becomes convinced that the truth lies in her memories of the New Year's Eve years ago when her friend Grace disappeared from Kinsale forever. With the town still reeling from [a] devastating fire and powerful local families determined to protect young men from the consequences of their actions, Eliza begins to suspect that no one--even those she needs to trust the most--is telling the truth.--From the dust jacket.
Never Look Back, by Alison Gaylin
For thirteen days in 1976, teenage murderers April Cooper and Gabriel Leroy terrorized Southern California's Inland Empire, killing a dozen victims before perishing themselves in a fire...or did they? More than forty years later, twentysomething podcast producer Quentin Garrison blames his troubled upbringing on the murders. And after a shocking message from a source, he has reason to believe April Cooper may still be alive. Meanwhile, New York City film columnist Robin Diamond is coping with rising doubts about her husband and terrifying threats from internet trolls. But that's nothing compared to the outrageous phone call she gets from Quentin, followed by a shockingly brutal home invasion that makes her question everything she ever believed in. Is Robin's beloved mother a mass murderer? Is there anyone she can trust?--From the dust jacket.
Ghost Clause, by Howard A. Norman
Simon Inescort is no longer bodily present in his marriage. It's been several months since he keeled over the rail of a Nova Scotia-bound ferry. Simon's widow, Lorca Pell, has sold their farmhouse to newlyweds Zachary and Muriel--after revealing that the deed contains a "ghost clause," an actual legal clause, not unheard of in Vermont, allowing for reimbursement if a recently purchased home turns out to be haunted. In fact, Simon finds himself still at home. "Every waking moment, I'm astonished that I have any consciousness...What am I to call myself now, a revenant?" He spends time replaying his marriage in his own mind, as if in poignant reel-to-reel, while also engaging in occasionally intimate observation of the new homeowners. But soon the crisis of a missing child, a local eleven-year-old, threatens the tenuous domestic equilibrium, as the weight of the case falls on Zachary, new to his marriage but also a rookie private detective with the Green Mountain Agency.--From the dust jacket.
False Step, by Victoria Helen Stone
For days, all of Denver, Colorado, has worried over the fate of a missing child, little Tanner Holcomb. Then, a miracle: handsome, athletic Johnny Bradley finds him, frightened but unharmed, on a hiking trail miles from his wealthy family's mountain home. In a heartbeat, his rescuer goes from financially strapped fitness trainer to celebrated hero. The heat of the spotlight may prove too much for Johnny's picture-perfect family, however. His wife, Veronica, despises the pressure of the sudden fame, afraid that secrets and bitter resentments of her marriage may come to light. And she's willing to do anything to keep them hidden. But when a shocking revelation exposes an even darker side to Tanner's disappearance, Veronica realizes that nothing in her life can be trusted. And everything should be feared.--From the dust jacket.
