A debut novel by Lauren Stahl, forthcoming 1/2/2018
Kate Magda, an up-and-coming prosecutor and the privileged daughter of the politically connected President Judge Tommy Magda, has been given the assignment of a lifetime – lead prosecutor on a string of murders rocking Mission County, Pennsylvania. Kate views the assignment as her change to not only convict a serial killer, but to make a name for herself – one other than “the judge’s daughter.” She is determined to show her boss, her family, and the public that she is more than her father’s shadow.
As Kate delves into the case, she becomes convinced that she shares a personal link with the killer, who seems to know intimate details about a tragic childhood event Kate suffered – an event she thought she left in the past. It’s the way victims are being posed – naked and dumped in open graves. Paranoia sets in, the night terrors return, and Kate has an imminent sense that she’s the killer’s next victim. Kate no longer feels assigned to the case…she is the case, and solving it is the only chance for her survival.
The flagship publication of ODDITIES KJB, by David Andreas, is forthcoming 1/2/18
When three children in a Catholic group home are brutally murdered, the survivors are hurried into separate foster homes across Long Island. Robin Hills, a fifteen-year-old who has spent the past several years under religious care, is thrust into a new, dysfunctional family with no spiritual beliefs. No longer protected by the religion and the nun she had come to love, Robin is completely alone and enveloped in fear.
When the murders continue and Robin fears she may become the next victim, her faith increasingly falters. However, she finds hope through Dennis, a boy her age living in her new foster home. Dennis’s kindness, his acceptance of Robin, and his bravery in the face of evil – born of his passion for horror movies – combine to reassure her that she’ll outlast the killings.
Armed with this new friendship and fueled by a rage she finally discovers within herself, Robin finds the courage and self-reliance to confront the darkest aspects of human depravity.
