Author: Melissa Ginsburg Narrator: Emily Shaffer Release Date: March 2021

After the sudden death of her mother, Ava finds herself headed cross-country to live with the only relative she has left. But Lane, her grandmother, doesn't seem to have much room in her heart for a teenage girl, barely acknowledging Ava between obsessive painting sessions. The only other person who comes around is Lane's assistant, Oliver, who's dealing with issues of his own. As the summer goes on, Ava begins to get a sense that something is very wrong in her grandmother's house. Why was Lane estranged from Ava's mother, and is she now losing her mind? Could the danger lie with Oliver? Or, is there something darker in their past, something which could come back to destroy them all? "Ginsburg's brilliance is on full display in The House Uptown. By giving us these layered, complicated characters, all suffering from previous traumas, Ginsburg reveals how the past keeps reaching toward us, and what we'll do to stay out of its reach."

Deadfall: A John Hutchinson Novel Audiobook

Deadfall: A John Hutchinson Novel

Author: Robert Liparulo Narrator: Henry Kramer Release Date: March 2021

It was supposed to be an escape from their daily lives. Deep in the isolated Northwest Territories, four friends are on the trip of a lifetime. Dropped by helicopter into the remote Canadian wilderness, Hutch, Terry, Phil, and David are looking to escape the events of a tumultuous year for two weeks of hunting, fishing, and camping. Now they just hope they escape alive. Armed only with a bow and arrow and the basics for survival, they've chosen a place far from civilization, a retreat from their turbulent lives. But they quickly discover that another group has targeted the remote region and the secluded hamlet of Fiddler Falls for a more menacing purpose: to field-test the ultimate weapon. Will they be able to beat the clock and save an innocent town from utter eradication? With more than a week before the helicopter rendezvous and no satellite phone, they must risk everything to help the townspeople who are being held hostage and terrorized. And with any luck, they might just survive themselves. Praise for Deadfall: "What if Mad Max, Rambo, and the Wild Bunch showed up-all packing Star Wars-like weapons-in a small Canadian town? You'd have the thrilling adventure novel Deadfall. Robert Liparulo reminds us that small-town life is still the scariest, and man's inhumanity to man is still The Most Dangerous Game." -Katherine Neville, New York Times bestselling author of The Eight "Inventive, suspenseful, and highly entertaining. An engrossing and imaginative tale that sticks in your brain and makes you wonder about its real possibilities. Robert Liparulo is a storyteller, pure and simple." -Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Alexandria Link "High-octane thrills are Robert Liparulo's specialty, and boy does he deliver in this ultimate tale of survival." -Tess Gerritsen, author of The Bone Garden "Deadfall is a brilliantly crafted thriller with a terrifying premise and flawless execution. I loved it." -Michael Palmer, author of The Fifth Vial - Book 1 of the John Hutchinson novels (Book #2: Deadlock) - Book length: over 100,000 words

Until the wife's body turns up the next morning back in the studio. The victim, Nan, is from out of town, so it's hard to imagine who'd have a motive aside from her spouse. Now, in between puzzling over her fortuneteller neighbor's strange behavior, preparing for her best friend's wedding, and pouring cups of java at the bookstore, Jill must uncover the secrets of Nan's life and find out who wanted her out of the picture . . .
