Air Force investigator Martin Collins is used to bucking the system in the name of justice. But when he is called on to investigate the torture-style slaying of Major Franklin Talbot, Collins is embroiled in the most controversial case of his career. Evidence suggests that the deadly act was a hate crime — and that Talbot was hiding a shocking secret that may have sealed his fate. Even more shocking are the suspects: all high-ranking officers — including Talbot’s own uncle, a leading presidential candidate. Traversing a politically charged minefield of buried secrets, Martin is targeted by powerful forces that cannot afford to let him identify Talbot’s killer. And when he finally uncovers the devastating truth, Martin will be forced to make a fateful decision between catching a sadistic murderer — and destroying the lives of countless innocent men.

  Title: The Experiment

London, Ontario
  Time: 4:00 p.m.

The phrase ‘separated at birth’ takes on a terrifying new meaning in this riveting medical thriller from the author of Neanderthal. When tabloid journalist Jude Harley and a distraught young man known only as Skyler meet on the streets of New York City, they could be identical twins–except that Skyler is a few years younger and fitter than the 30-year-old Jude. And when Skyler sees that Jude’s girlfriend, Dr. Elizabeth “Tizzie” Tierney, is a dead ringer for Julia, his own lost love, he–and we–know that something very spooky is going on. It turns out to be a case of “send in the clones”: they were all part of a bizarre experiment when they were kids, and now they’re up to their doppelgangers in a deadly confrontation with scientists and politicians who want to keep the whole thing quiet.…”

Stewart is known for her novels set in 5th century Britain, e.g., The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills. Here, after a five-year hiatus, she shifts skillfully to the 20th century, mixing magic, witchcraft, and romance. Readers will be hooked from the very first line, “I suppose that my mother could have been a witch if she had chosen to.” The speaker is Gilley Ramsey, who has inherited her cousin’s house in the English countryside…Gilly finds that she has inherited far more than she realized. Along with the house comes a cat, a still room filled with herbs (and a missing recipe book), an attic chamber with carrier pigeons (who have secret messages), and an attractive neighbor whose young son offers the sacred and unique blessing of friendship. But Thornyhold possesses far more than even these simple offerings. The place itself seems to convoke otherworldly gifts as well: Gilly cultivates the abilities to heal and to foresee the future once she makes Thornyhold her home.

  Title: The Face of Deception

After losing her beloved child to a serial killer, forensic sculptor Eve Duncan survives by focusing on her career. The best in her field at rebuilding faces from bare skull bones, Eve specializes in identifying missing children. When billionaire John Logan requests her help in identifying an adult skull, Eve–already swamped with work–tells Logan that she isn’t interested. But when he volunteers to donate a large sum of money to a charity for missing children in exchange for her time, Eve reluctantly agrees. Logan neglects to tell her that there are powerful, desperate people who are determined to keep the skull’s true identity a secret at any cost. Eve’s gut instincts tell her that Logan is holding back vital information: Does the billionaire really believe that he’s uncovered new insight into the Kennedy assassination? Or does the skull tie him to a mysterious murder? Eve’s wildest guesses don’t even come close to the stunning truth that she discovers when she at last studies the restored face. Now she and Logan have proof of a dark secret that could get them killed. And it will take all of their combined cunning and sheer nerve to survive.
