♠♠♠ Graeme Cameron: Normal

Dark, twisted and compelling. An exciting and original thriller...

He lives on your street, in a nice house with a tidy garden. He shops at your local supermarket. He drives beside you, waving to let you into the lane ahead of him. He also has an elaborate cage in a secret basement under his garage. The food he’s carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he’s holding there against her will – one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her. This is how it’s been for a long time. It’s normal…and it works. Perfectly. But this time it’s different…

Graeme Cameron is a former fighter pilot, detective, racing driver and shark tamer who now tells lies for a living. A keen photographer with a day job in motorsport, Graeme was born and lives in Norfolk, has four children and likes chocolate but not chocolate-flavoured things.
♠♠♠ Cross: The Samaritan

A skilled manhunter is on the track of a serial killer in this fast paced thriller...

When the mutilated body of a young woman is discovered in the Santa Monica Mountains, LAPD Detective Jessica Allen knows she's seen this MO before - two and a half years ago on the other side of the country. A sadistic serial killer has been operating undetected for a decade, preying on lone female drivers who have broken down.

The press dub the killer 'the Samaritan', but with no leads and a killer who leaves no traces, the police investigation quickly grinds to a halt. That's when Carter Blake shows up to volunteer his services. He's a skilled manhunter with an uncanny ability to predict the Samaritan's next moves. At first, Allen and her colleagues are suspicious. After all, their new ally shares some uncomfortable similarities to the man they're tracking. But as the Samaritan takes his slaughter to the next level, Blake must find a way to stop him ... even if it means bringing his own past crashing down on top of him.
Mason Cross lives in Glasgow. He studied English at the University of Stirling and has worked as a tax officer, project manager and pizza delivery boy. His story 'A Living' was shortlisted for the Get Britain Reading Award, and Ellery Queen published 'Expiry Date'. The Killing Season is his first novel. 
Emma Kavanagh: Hidden

A gripping psychological thriller by a former police psychologist: As time ticks down, no one knows who the gunman's next target will be...

HE'S WATCHING: A gunman is stalking the wards of a local hospital. He's unidentified and dangerous, and has to be located. Urgently. Police Firearms Officer Aden McCarthy is tasked with tracking him down. Still troubled by the shooting of a schoolboy, Aden is determined to make amends by finding the gunman - before it's too late. 

SHE'S WAITING: To psychologist Imogen, hospital should be a place of healing and safety - both for her, and her young niece who's been recently admitted. She's heard about the gunman, but he has little to do with her. Or has he? As time ticks down, no one knows who the gunman's next target will be. But he's there. Hiding in plain sight. Far closer than anyone thinks... 

Emma is a police and military psychologist with a PhD from Cardiff. She is lucky enough to write psychological thrillers and has so far had two books published with Arrow - Falling (2014) and Hidden (2015). She lives in South Wales with her husband and two young sons. 
♠♠♠ Sokoloff: Huntress Moon

An FBI agent on the trail of a female serial killer in the first book of a riveting new series...

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. 

His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial. 

Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states...while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be. 

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.
