The Summer House by James Patterson

The Summer House by James PattersonEnter for a chance to win one of 20 advanced reader copies of The Summer House by James Patterson.

Seven murder victims.
Four accused Army Rangers.
Two versions of the truth.
Only one can survive.

Sullivan County, Georgia, belongs to Sheriff Emma Williams. But when Rangers posted to the local base are implicated in a major crime, the Army challenges her jurisdiction.

An elite team of investigators, led by Major Jeremiah Cook, are called to The Summer House, a grand old place on a lake that’s now locked down for a forensic investigation. The small-town sheriff has never worked a multiple homicide, and Cook knows it. To Cook, the physical evidence Williams swears by presents clues to an entirely different story. One that will be impossible for his commanding officers — or anyone — to believe.

Unless he can convince the locals that the recent crimes are part of a larger mystery, this outsider may never unlock the century of secrets hidden inside The Summer House.

The Victim of the System by Steve Hadden

The Victim of the System by Steve HaddenEnter for a chance to win this rare thriller with heart...Haunted by the unsolved murder of his parents, a hometown sports hero battles to save a ten-year-old genius on trial for murder.

Twenty-two years ago, Ike Rossi’s life was shattered when his parents were murdered in cold blood. He surrendered his football scholarship and returned home to find their killer and raise his nine-year-old sister.

Now, the crime of a local ten-year-old genius, Jack Cole, threatens to unearth old wounds rather than provide the closure Ike desperately wants.

When Ike meets Jack inside the Pittsburgh courthouse, he doesn’t see a murderer but instead a boy who has been victimized by a system that has left them both without justice. Despite knowing the case will resurrect the painful demons of his parents’ unsolved murders, Ike agrees to clear Jack’s name. The court of public opinion and the district attorney have an airtight case. Worse, taking Jack’s side thrusts Ike into the crosshairs of the most powerful family in Pittsburgh, the Falzones.

Now, with only days before the trial, Ike confronts the Falzones’ crumbling empire to find the shocking evidence that could save Jack. At the same time, he races to decipher a series of cryptic clues from Jack’s dead father that could hold the key to his son’s freedom. But each step closer to the truth draws them further into danger, and as three fractured families collide, Ike is forced to choose between saving Jack—and saving himself.

~ "Visceral and gorgeously written, Unloved may just be my favorite Katy Regnery novel yet." -Kamrun Nesa, USA Today HEA Blog

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a unique story about the sins of the father...and the burdens of the son.

My name is Cassidy Porter...

My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was convicted twenty years ago for the brutal murder of a dozen innocent girls.

Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware - every day of my life - that I am his child, his only son.

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.

It's a promise I would have kept...if Brynn Cadogan hadn't stumbled into my life.

Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain...

Unloved.
