By Ni­cholas Wolff Some­thing’s not right in the seem­ingly idyl­lic small town of Northam, Mas­sachusetts. Psy­chi­a­trist Nat Thayer di­ag­noses his new pa­tient Becca with an ob­scure con­di­tion some­times de­scribed as “walk­ing corpse syn­drome,” but as­sures her fa­ther there are no evil spirts con­trol­ling his daugh­ter. When Becca’s rare dis­or­der ap­pears to be con­ta­gious, af­fect­ing his neigh­bors, Thayer works to un­cover the town’s dark and wicked his­tory to solve the source of the plague, be­fore ev­ery­one he loves is gone.

By Sarah Rayne When the Harpers, a cou­ple from New Jersey, in­herit a di­lap­i­dated Vic­to­rian man­sion in Eng­land, they are de­lighted and move in with their young daugh­ter. Af­ter she is plagued with night­mares and sud­denly dis­ap­pears, the Harpers call on their friend Pro­fes­sor Michael Flint to re­search the murky his­tory of the house. Can Flint and his friend, wid­owed an­tiques dealer Nell West, un­ravel the mys­tery be­fore the Harpers be­come part of the house’s tragic legacy? The Pas­sen­ger (2016)

By F.R. Tallis It’s 1940 and a Ger­man sub­ma­rine cap­tain has been tasked with a se­cret mis­sion to pick up two pris­on­ers of war in Ice­land and de­liver them to Ger­many. When one of the pris­on­ers goes rogue, the af­ter­math is shock­ing and leans to­ward the su­per­nat­u­ral. Fans of World War II fic­tion and movies like “Das Boot” will en­joy this dark read.
