We Haunt These Woods by Holley Cornetto
Nate Holbrook had put his past behind him. When his friends went missing all those years ago at Lake Swart, it had been nothing more than a tragic mystery. No matter what stories they’d told each other about the “Forest Man,” there was no primeval menace lingering in that cave they found deep in the woods.
But when Nate meets up with Jennifer, a fellow Lake Swart survivor and his first love, everything changes. Finding her scarred and broken by the weight of the past, he proposes a daring remedy for their shared trauma—to return to their old summer haunt and prove the thing in the cave nothing more than a delusion and a myth.
But what if Nate is wrong?
What if the Forest Man is still waiting, after all this time, for a new friend to sing his song… to take his hand and disappear?
Children of Fire by Chris DiLeo
A Man with Nothing Left
Former detective Landon Rowe has lost everything—his child, his wife, his career. He’s a man without purpose, but he’s always believed in doing what’s right, even helping his ex’s husband.
A Cop with Something to Prove
Rowe’s ex-wife has fled with her new son to a religious cult in western New York where a charismatic and dangerous zealot, Eamon Fischer, preaches not baptism by water but by flames. Unable to do anything for the infant son who died years ago, Rowe agrees to infiltrate the Children of Fire cult and rescue the boy.
A Detective Out of Practice
It should be simple—find the kid and leave—but Fischer and his followers are anything but simple. When events turn deadly, Rowe will have no choice but to take on the entire cult to save the boy and himself.
A Child of Fire
To rescue his ex-wife's child, Rowe will have to confront his own trauma, a crucible that will challenge everything he knows. What is the truth behind his broken career, his failed marriage, and his dead son? For Landon Rowe, it will be a baptism by fire and the consequences may be more than one soul can bear.
