The New York Times best-sell­ing writer Kel­ley Arm­strong takes a break from her usual para­nor­mal genre with Omens – an at­mo­spheric and grip­ping thriller.

Main char­ac­ter Olivia Jones wants for noth­ing – born into a wealthy fam­ily and set to marry the CEO of a fast-grow­ing Chicago tech firm, life couldn’t be bet­ter.

Weeks be­fore her wed­ding, how­ever, she finds out two shock­ing facts – she was adopted as a young­ster and her real par­ents are pro­lific mur­der­ers.

On the run from the me­dia who un­cov­ered her se­cret and are now des­per­ate to snare an ex­clu­sive, and de­ter­mined to find out the truth for her­self, Olivia winds up in Cainsville, a small town as spook­ily fas­ci­nat­ing as Stephen King’s Cas­tle Rock or Dean Koontz’s Moon­light Bay. She be­lieves this town is the per­fect place to hide while she searches for an­swers. But Olivia’s ar­rival in Cainsville was no ac­ci­dent...

Omens is a heady blend of in­trigue, be­trayal and con­spir­acy, which all link to­gether to cre­ate a real page­turner, per­fect for Arm­strong fans and new­com­ers alike, and a very strong start to her next se­ries. She’s de­liv­ered sus­pense­ful thrills and supernatural chills.
