Before the Krewe of Hunters, there was Harrison Investigations. Be thrilled by this classic paranormal romantic suspense by the queen of the genre, New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham. When Sarah McKinley is finally able to buy and restore the historic Florida mansion that she has always loved, she dismisses the horror stories of past residents vanishing and a long-dead housekeeper who practiced black magic. Then, in the midst of renovations, she makes a grim discovery. Hidden within the walls of Sarah’s dream house are the remains of dozens of bodies—some dating back over a century. The door to the past is blown wide open when Caleb Anderson, a private investigator, shows up at the mansion. He believes several current missing-persons cases are linked to the house and its dark past. Working together to find the connection and stop a contemporary killer, Sarah and Caleb are compelled to research the history of the haunted house, growing closer to each other even as the solution to the murders eludes them. But there is one who knows the truth…a spirit who follows every move they make. Soon Caleb begins to fear that if he can’t stay a step ahead, he could lose Sarah to a killer with an ability to transcend time in a quest for blood and sacrifice. Originally published in 2009

Three chilling novels of psychological suspense from “a novelist of the highest quality” (The Independent on Sunday). Copycat: Martha’s new neighbor, Jennie, seems to love everything about her: her beautiful house, impressive children, attractive husband, even the way she dresses. It’s all a bit much. But when Jennie starts changing, gaining confidence and succeeding in love and work, Martha’s life begins to come apart at the seams, and their frayed friendship hurtles toward an extreme confrontation. “White handles her gruesome ingredients with control and intelligence.” —The Independent on Sunday Dogboy: From the age of eight, when his mother died and he landed at the social services office, Fergus has fiercely loved his social worker, Jem. So Jem’s marriage is the deepest betrayal. Now nineteen, Fergus has just been released from prison, and he’s coming to set things right between them. “A tone of punchy malice governs White’s literate black comedy. . . . [She] wields a wickedly sardonic pen.” —Publishers Weekly Unhallowed Ground: London social worker Georgina Jefferson battles guilt and public disgrace when one of her charges, an abused five-year-old girl, is beaten to death. She retreats to an isolated cottage that once belonged to her deceased brother. But her neighbors’ hostility and a series of chilling incidents cause her to question who or what threatens her most. “Gothic elements abound in this spine-tingling melodrama. . . . A suspenseful, tautly woven thriller featuring a suitably shocking conclusion.” —Booklist With these three unforgettable psychological thrillers, “White evokes comparisons to Fay Weldon and Joy Fielding with her comic flair and touch of the grotesque” (Publishers Weekly).

To catch a dangerous killer Wesley has to discover as much as he can about the victim.
