Suspense, thrills, mystery, and impending doom wait in the pages of these novels.
My Very Own Murder
Anne Johnson is 50 and newly divorced. She spends her days sipping martinis, whiling away time in her luxury apartment, until a voice in her head tells her a murder will be committed in 30 days and she can prevent it. This is a cleverly written, fun mystery.

Gone, Baby, Gone
At the heart of Lehane's novel is a consideration on the victimization of children. A four-year-old girl has disappeared over a year ago, and two private investigators are asked by a relative of the girl to solve the case. Reluctantly, they expose selfishness -- everyone is indicted -- antithetical to parenting. What is best for the child?
The Book of Murder
A woman seeks help when the people closest to her start having fatal accidents.
Superior court judge Alex Cormier finds herself at the center of an emotional whirlwind after a high school shooting involving her daughter. Picoult ratchets up the tension by using flashbacks and flash-forwards to bracket the harrowing nineteen minutes of the shooting itself.
