Anna O'Neill knows her family is a little crazy. But when she goes to visit her aunt and uncle for the summer and learns that her uncle's charred body has been found, her life reaches a new level of insanity. According to the local town gossip, all the O'Neill women are psychic or psychotic, and with her erratic aunt's 'psychic' abilities, exaggerated by grief, making her more unstable than ever, perhaps even dangerous, Anna is struggling to pick up the pieces and establish any sense of normality. Anna desperately wants to trust Zack, the cute boy next door, but it seems even he might know more than he's letting on. But when Anna starts to feel an unexplainable pull to the site of her uncle's murder, she begins to believe that maybe her family's supernatural gifts are real after all. Torn between loyalty and suspicion, Anna is certain of only one thing; she must discover who killed her uncle before she ends up in ashes herself…

According to town gossip, Anna O’Neill is either psychic or psycho, and she needs to find out which—fast. First her mother and then her uncle have been murdered, and she doesn’t know whether the two crimes are connected. And now she’s having bizarre dreams that seem to foretell her own death. She doesn’t think everyone in town is telling all they know, and she doesn’t understand why Zack, the attractive neighbor, has taken a sudden interest in her. All Anna knows for sure is that she must get some answers from the ghosts in her family—before she becomes one herself. From School Library Journal Grade 7 Up—When Anna O'Neill Kirkpatrick receives an invitation from her great-uncle Will asking her to visit him and her great-aunt Iris as soon as possible, she goes willingly. She had lived with them as a child after her mother was killed in a robbery, but was then put in foster care and later adopted by her loving foster mother. When she arrives, she finds that her uncle was killed in a fire, that the perpetrator has not been caught, and that her aunt is either senile or crazy. Anna sets out on her own to investigate the murder and discovers her family history in the process. She soon learns that some family secrets are to die for. Chandler does a fantastic job of keeping readers on edge and creating a suspenseful mood and tone. This is an excellent stand-alone book that is sure to be popular.—Sherry Rampey, Gaston Branch Library, SC Review "Chandler does a fantastic job of keeping readers on edge and creating a suspenseful mood and tone. This is an excellent stand-alone book that is sure to be popular." - SLJ January 2011 "This book is a classic teen mystery/romance that may appeal to teens who were enthralled with the Twilight series. It is fast-paced, humorous, and light yet deals with some serious issues. Searching for your roots, dealing with dementia and mental illness, and finding independence are all touched upon in this third volume of the Dark Secrets series. The book is great for a short winter escape, or a long plane ride. It is a quick read with just enough suspense to keep you reading to solve the mystery. The characters are superficial but the storyline moves and is very timely. It is not the type of book you would write an English essay about, but it is great for a quick escape."—VOYA

The bullet tore through 900 meters before the ejected shell casing even hit the ground. Splitting thick blond hairs with enormous energy, it introduced itself to Sven Olagssen and valiantly rushed out the other side of his head, exploding into thousands of unidentifiable little pieces – just as designed. Agent Stone calmly pulled his head back from his sniper scope. His senses were on full alert, now. Red-billed Blue Magpies were chirping to each other and showing off their bright colors, nearby an occasional Bulbul would interrupt them with an anxious tweedle and Osmanthus flowers filled the air with their intoxicatingly sweet scent. For some, death was a disturbing and haunting reality. For others, it was something never witnessed or spoken of. For Trey Stone, the death of his targets meant many others would live. He had no problem falling asleep that night to the humming engines of the CIA yacht … until a phone call spun his life around and drew him into a dark and very personal war. Hunting the Midnight Shark is a fast-paced International/CIA/Thriller genre novel introducing you to the effluvial and Machiavellian world of child trafficking.

An international sports star is found murdered--her face mutilated in a bizarre, ritualistic manner. What is the significance of the poetic text the killer has left at the crime scene? Why did he surgically remove the victim's left eye? And can a Cambridge lecturer help the police reconstruct the killer's fantasy in time to save her own life? As Inspector John Underwood and his team work frantically to piece together the last hours of Olympic athlete Lucy Harrington, events take an unexpected turn. Harrington's murderer contacts English literature lecturer Heather Stussmann and invites her to explain his actions to the police. But another murder will take place before Stussmann finds the key to understanding the killer's terrifying motive, which lies buried in the works of a poet who has been dead for nearly four hundred years. In The Yeare's Midnight, author Ed O'Connor has created a villain with an intellect as cunning as it is monstrous. Donne's cerebral poems, such as "The Feaver" and "The First Anniversary," are ingeniously transmogrified into a thriller that melds metaphysics and mortality.

A heart-pounding tale-part historical suspense, part medical thriller-set in the final months of World War II. In 2004, Gregg Keizer put an unforgettable new spin on the World War II suspense novel with his debut, The Longest Night. Now, with Midnight Plague, Keizer sets the bar even higher with a fresh and thrilling blend of war and medical suspense. As the secret countdown to the Normandy invasion gets under way, a fishing boat runs aground on British shores with a hold full of passengers all dead from a mysterious illness. American doctor Frank Brink, who has been working with the British to develop antibiotics in anticipation of a possible Axis biological attack, is summoned to investigate. Interviewing the one surviving member of the crew, a young Frenchwoman who was working with the Resistance, Brink quickly realizes that someone is testing a biological weapon within the French lines. He suspects that it is the pneumonic plague-a horrifying disease with a one-hundred-percent mortality rate. With the help of Alix, the Frenchwoman, Brink must travel through occupied France to uncover the German laboratory where the disease is being tested. As the days tick down to the planned assault on Normandy, it is critical that he find and stop his German counterpart before he unleashes a biological terror.

Shortlisted for the Epic Novel award in the Romantic Novelists Association Books Awards. Spanning four generations, The Midnight Rose by Lucinda Riley sweeps from the glittering palaces of the great maharajas of India to the majestic stately homes of England, following the extraordinary life of a girl, Anahita Chavan, from 1911 to the present day . . . A lifelong passion. An endless search. In the heyday of the British Raj, eleven-year-old Anahita, from a noble but impoverished family, forms a lifelong friendship with the headstrong Princess Indira, the privileged daughter of rich Indian royalty. Becoming the princess's official companion, Anahita accompanies her friend to England just before the outbreak of the Great War.

Eighty years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet. But when her turbulent relationship with her equally famous boyfriend takes an unexpected turn, she's relieved that her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, will take her away from the glare of publicity to the wilds of Dartmoor in England. Shortly after filming begins at the now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahita's great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his family's past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . .
