A body found hanging from the ceiling fan in the tower room of the old manor house on Storm Island.
For nineteen years, Kate Pomeroy has suppressed that memory. A second-year-resident in surgery, she thinks she has her life under control. But a curious conversation overheard while taking a catnap launches her on a descent into a world filled with nightmarish visions that cause her to doubt her own sanity.
Ever since Angie Russo woke up from a near fatal run-in with a coffee maker, she’s been able to talk to—and even worse, understand—one very spoiled tabby named Octavius.
He says his owner was murdered and that she’s the only one who can help bring the killer to justice. And, well, that’s just the first of the wonderfully whacky mysteries they solve together. Add in a traumatized terrier witness and two murderous Sphynx cats who speak only in riddles, toss on your favorite deerstalker cap, and let’s go sleuthing!
When a psychic tells Natalie Nixon her life is about to be upended by a mysterious stranger, she laughs it off. After all, she has everything she’s ever wanted—a successful bakery, the perfect boyfriend, and the keys to her dream house.

Then Miles Haas comes back to town.

When the news broke, it was chaos. With the two best detectives on the case, there were sure to be some answers. At least that was the hope. They’re stumped. And people are scared.
DI Lorne Simpkins is getting bad vibes on this one. She can’t shake the feeling that she’s being watched. Are they dealing with a serial killer or are there two murderers on the loose?
Tommy Phan is a 30-year-old Vietnamese-American detective and novelist living in Southern California, and a chaser of the American Dream. He drives home his brand-new Corvette one day to discover a strange doll on his doorstep. It’s a rag doll made entirely of white cloth, with no face or hair or clothes. Where the eyes should be, there are two crossed stitches of black thread. Five sets of crossed black stitches mark the mouth, and another pair form an X over the heart.
He brings it into the house. That night, he hears an odd little popping sound and looks up to see the crossed stitches over the doll’s heart breaking apart. When he picks up the doll, he feels something pulsing in its chest.

Rafe was totally against the idea of Jake Dulan’s daughters going with the train. He would like nothing better than to leave Willow for the rattlesnakes and Indians. The feeling is mutual.
They lock horns and refuse to budge.
