Summary: Move over, Hannibal Lecter. The Sandman is coming, and he's going to knock you off your perch as the world's creepiest and smartest serial killer. Chris Mooney's nail-biting, scarifying debut thriller features a fully drawn protagonist in former FBI profiler Jack Casey, whose life was shattered when another madman killed his pregnant wife before his eyes. Now Jack's a local cop on a small-town beat in Marblehead, Massachusetts, rebuilding his life with the help of a beautiful woman and a community of caring friends. But when a psychopath who seems to know everything about Jack's past as well as his present starts torturing and killing entire families in the quiet Boston suburb and then trapping his pursuers by blowing them up at the scene, Casey begins to wonder where the man the media dubbed the Sandman is getting his inside information. Is there a conspiracy at the highest levels of federal intelligence to cover up a behavioral experiment gone wrong? What's the connection between an unsolved arson at a Massachusetts home for troubled boys and the Sandman's choice of victims? And where does another ex-profiler fit in? He seems to know as much as the Sandman and offers Jack his help in solving the awful crimes.
The most important question may be whether Anthony Hopkins is available for another leading role as a psychopath. But don't wait for the inevitable big-screen treatment. Grab this bloody, violent, and mesmerizing study of psychological terror and the redemptive power of love before they call the casting director. Just don't read it on a stormy night when you're home alone. "--Jane Adams"

Summary: Darby McCormack was in high school when she first encountered the killer: someone murdered a woman in the woods where Darby and her two best friends were partying. His race to silence the witnesses was sure-footed and violent - but somehow Darby survived. Twenty-five years later, Darby is a crime-scene investigator for the Boston Police Department, and a chilling case - a woman's late-night abduction - has her uncovering strange leads to missing women, past and present. As forensic clues lead her closer to a psychopath called the Traveler, Darby must finally resolve the nightmare of her past and come face-to-face with a killer who is determined to keep the missing - and the horrors they endured at his hands - from ever coming to light.

Summary: His codename is Angel Eyes. His genius: his ability to steal prototype weapons with unimaginable destructive powers, and leave no trace of their whereabouts. The weapons never appear on any black market. They're never used to wage a battle on U.S. soil. And they're never sold to foreign agents. It's as if they simply vanish. But a top-secret CIA operation is one step ahead of the game. They know Angel Eyes' next target. A company in Texas has developed a military combat uniform that renders a soldier virtually invisible. Optical camouflage would arm Angel Eyes with limitless possibilities -- and no one knows that better than CIA operative Steve Conway. But as Conway and his team set the trap for the elusive Angel Eyes, things go terribly wrong. When the trap disintegrates and Conway emerges as the sole survivor, he quickly realizes that in order to retrieve the most valuable weapon ever invented, he'll have to go one-on-one with the most dangerous man in the world. As Conway closes in on the true identity of the killer and his unfathomable motives, he begins to see that there are even darker forces at work. Forces that may emanate from within the CIA itself. Forces that want Conway dead.
