The Moon is Missing: A Novel

Author: Jenni Ogden Narrator: Cat Gould Release Date: September 2020

From Jenni Ogden, author of award-winning A Drop in the Ocean, comes a gripping tale of family secrets and mother–daughter conflict set in London, New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, and on a remote island off the coast of New Zealand.  Georgia Grayson has perfected the art of being two people: a neurosurgeon on track to becoming the first female Director of Neurosurgery at a large London hospital, and a wife and mother. Home is her haven where, with husband Adam’s support, she copes with her occasional anxiety attacks. That is until her daughter, 15-year-old Lara, demands to know more about Danny, her mysterious biological father from New Orleans who died before she was born. “Who was he? Why did he die? WHO AM I?” Trouble is, Georgia can’t tell her. As escalating panic attacks prevent her from operating, and therapy fails to bring back the memories she has repressed, fractures rip through her once happy family. Georgia sees only one way forward­ –– to return to New Orleans where Danny first sang his way into her heart, and then to the rugged island where he fell to his death. Somehow she must uncover the truth Lara deserves, whatever the cost.  “Jenni Ogden is a beautiful writer. In her newest, a tale of domestic suspense, Ogden tells the story of a neurosurgeon bedeviled by her own sophisticated brain and the memories of a long-ago tragedy that still has the power to destroy her and her family. Pick up The Moon is Missing. You won’t put it down.” — Jacquelyn Mitchard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean

Convince Me: A Novel Audiobook

Convince Me: A Novel

Author: Nina Sadowsky Narrator: Caitlin Davies, Carol Monda, Sean Kenin Release Date: August 2020

A charismatic man's death exposes the secrets he kept, revealing him to family and friends as an unrepentant pathological liar in this explosive thriller from film producer and author Nina Sadowsky. "Convince Me will keep readers guessing until the very end."-New York Times bestselling author Karin Slaughter Justin Childs is handsome, likeable, smart. A devoted son to his mother, Carol; a loving husband to his wife, Annie; and a sure-footed, savvy business partner to his best friend from college, Will. To so many, the perfect man. He's also a liar. And now he's dead. When Justin's body is retrieved from the wreckage of a car accident, his death leaves his loved ones with more questions than answers. In life, his charm and easygoing nature inspired trust, making him friends wherever he went. Now that he's gone, the cracks begin to show: disturbing discrepancies in his company's financials, unaccounted-for absences, a medical record that appears to be entirely fabricated.  As the secrets and betrayals pile up, Annie, Carol, and Will realize their beloved Justin was not the man they thought he was. And why was he found dead with Valium in his system when he notoriously detested drugs? Was the crash that killed him really an accident-or did Justin finally get caught in something he couldn't lie his way out of?  Convince Me is a chilling look at what makes a sociopath in an age of untruth-and a high-octane, surprising read to its very last page.
