Last to Die
Author: Arlene Hunt
He watches. He waits. He kills... When Jessie Conway survives a horrific mass high school shooting, in the aftermath she finds herself thrust into the media spotlight, drawing all kinds of attention. But some of it is the wrong kind. Caleb Switch, a sadistic serial killer, has been watching her every move. A skilled hunter, he likes his victims to be a challenge. Jessie is strong, fearless, a survivor, and now... she is his ultimate prey. As Caleb picks off his current victims one by one, chasing, killing and butchering them with his crossbow, he's closing in on Jessie... But will Jessie defy the odds and escape with her life? Or will she be Caleb's final sacrifice ... A clever, dangerously twisted thriller that will have fans of Tess Gerritsen and Karin Slaughter gripped until the very last page. What readers are saying about Last to Die: 'A taut, sharp, gripping reimagining of the serial-killer novel.' Tana French 'Absolutely relentless in pace... I became totally immersed in Last to Die. It's a story of survival and there was certainly plenty of tension and suspense to keep me reading late into the evening.' "The Book Review Cafe" 'This book needs to be finished in one sitting... Jessie had a lot of grit and was a strong main character. Caleb was a true sociopath. Put these two characters together and you are in for a real treat. My first book by this author and definitely it won't be my last. Highly recommend reading this. But clear your calendar because you won't be moving until you finish.' "Laura's Book Reviews""

The investigation into the whereabouts of his young assistant Katy Shore is a waste of time in accountant Cal Miller's opinion and, with his reputation as a relative newcomer to small town Leyton's business community to protect and his wife's good graces to consider, the decision to withhold information that could get him into trouble is an easy one. A couple of days and he'll be in the clear, or so he thinks, until he discovers Katy's deceptions far outweigh his own. Facing issues of trust he thought he'd put behind him, Cal finds his business, marriage and freedom at stake in a way he could never have imagined. With detectives deaf to his claims that no crime has been committed and townspeople out for revenge, his ill-conceived responses to the developing scandal merely aggravate the situation and lead even his family to wonder whether his secrets are darker and his past more blemished than he is willing to admit.

"Jar of Hearts grabs you by the throat! The perfect blend of riveting characters, chilling details, and gasping twists in this standout thriller will keep you frantically reading until the explosive end.” – Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Right Behind You • A Top 10 bestseller (CrimeReads) • A June 2018 LibraryReads pick • This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who's been searching for the truth all these years . . . When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong—one of the most popular girls in school—disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school. But fourteen years later, Angela Wong's remains are discovered in the woods near Geo's childhood home. And Kaiser—now a detective with Seattle PD—finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women. To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he's something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo's first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed. For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela's death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison. While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong. How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it? Find out in Jennifer Hillier's Jar of Hearts.
