Trois sœurs, une nuit d'épouvante. Qui croire ? Où est la vérité ?
Il y a vingt ans, Emily Mills a découvert le corps de son père assassiné, pendu à un arbre du jardin. Ses sœurs Madison et Tara affirment toutes deux n’avoir rien vu. Le drame a poussé leur mère au suicide et Tara à quitter définitivement la ville. Depuis, le tueur a été arrêté et l'affaire classée.
Emily et Madison se sont efforcées d'oublier ces événements tragiques, mais un meurtre étrangement similaire fait brusquement resurgir le passé. L'agent du FBI Alex Wells se rend sur place pour enquêter et, s’il cherche avant tout à résoudre ce double meurtre d'une extrême violence, il est aussi très intrigué par le passé d'Emily et de ses sœurs.
Lorsque d'autres meurtres surviennent, Alex soupçonne l'existence d'un secret enfoui, que personne ne veut exhumer. Emily et Madison l'ignorent-elles ou en sont-elles les gardiennes ? Et Tara ? Si Emily n'a jamais cherché à la retrouver, est-ce parce que, quand sa sœur a disparu, elle a emporté ce secret avec elle ?
Il y a onze ans, l’assassin des étudiantes a tué neuf jeunes femmes sur le campus de l’université d’État de l’Oregon. Lacey Campbell a échappé de justesse à sa propre agression, mais y a perdu sa meilleure amie, dont la dépouille n’a jamais été retrouvée. En tant qu’unique victime rescapée, Lacey a contribué à faire condamner le tueur en série sadique à perpétuité.
Aujourd’hui odontologue en charge des examens dentaires pour le Bureau de médecine légale de l’État, Lacey est dévastée quand elle arrive sur une scène de crime et identifie des ossements comme étant ceux de son amie de fac.
La dépouille est retrouvée sur un terrain appartenant à l’ex-policier Jack Harper. Les étincelles fusent entre lui et Lacey, même lorsqu’ils réalisent tous les deux que les témoins du procès vieux d’une décennie se font maintenant assassiner les uns après les autres. Tout porte à croire que l’assassin des étudiantes est le responsable… Seulement, ce dernier est mort depuis longtemps.
Qui est donc le nouveau tueur ? Et Lacey est-elle la prochaine victime sur sa liste ?
Finaliste des Golden Heart Awards, Kendra Elliot combine suspense à glacer le sang et romance torride dans un récit captivant, réunissant ses connaissances pointues en médecine légale et sa passion pour les thrillers. Situé en plein hiver enneigé dans l’Oregon, Dans l’ombre est un concentré de frissons qui mettra tous vos sens en alerte.
Combien de morts faut-il pour valider la théorie du complot ?
Alors qu’il enquête sur un meurtre barbare dans la banlieue de Portland, le détective Mason Callahan découvre que la victime appartenait à une mouvance conspirationniste aux méthodes radicales. Reuben Braswell a en effet laissé derrière lui un document comportant de sévères menaces à l’encontre des forces de l’ordre. Or, à la surprise de Mason, le papier mentionne également le nom de sa fiancée : l’agent spécial Ava McLane.
Ava n’avait jamais pris au sérieux les élucubrations anti-policières de son indic… Mais quand l’enquête sur Braswell semble recouper celle sur l’attentat qui a tué plusieurs de leurs collègues, il devient urgent d’établir le dénominateur commun.
Face aux crimes violents qui s’enchaînent et à la disparition soudaine de Jayne, la jumelle d’Ava, les coïncidences semblent trop nombreuses : et si Mason et Ava étaient personnellement visés ?
An Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestseller.
Three sisters’ secrets collide in a shocking novel of suspense by the bestselling author of the Mercy Kilpatrick series.
Twenty years ago Emily Mills’s father was murdered, and she found his body hanging in the backyard. Her younger sister, Madison, claims she was asleep in her room. Her older sister, Tara, claims she was out with friends. The tragedy drove their mother to suicide and Tara to leave town forever. The killer was caught. The case closed.
Ever since, Emily and Madison have tried to forget what happened that night—until an eerily similar murder brings it all back. It also brings FBI special agent Zander Wells to the Oregon logging town. As eager as he is to solve the brutal double slaying, he is just as intrigued with the mystery of Emily’s and her sisters’ past.
When more blood is shed, Zander suspects there’s a secret buried in this town no one wants unearthed. Is it something Emily and Madison don’t know? Or aren’t telling? And Tara? Maybe Emily can’t bear to find her. Because when Tara disappeared, she took a secret of her own with her.
In this Wall Street Journal bestseller, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick must unlock the mystery of a mass murder, and the secrets of its silent witness...
For Mercy Kilpatrick, returning to rural Oregon has meant coming to terms with her roots. Raised as a prepper, Mercy is now relying on her survivalist instincts to defend her town from the people the law can’t reach. But this time, an investigation calling up a dark past for her and police chief Truman Daly may be hitting too close to home.
A rainstorm has uncovered the remains of five people—a reprise of the distinctive slaughter of two families twenty years ago. Except the convicted killer is in prison. Is this the case of a sick copycat, or is the wrong man behind bars? One person might have the answer. The lone survivor of the decades-old crimes has returned to town still claiming that she can’t remember a thing about the night she was left for dead. As the search for the truth becomes more dangerous, Mercy fears that the traumatized woman may not have buried her memories at all. She might be keeping them a secret. And there’s a price to be paid for revealing them.
In this Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestseller, there are no such things as little secrets?
Raised by preppers, survivalist and FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick has a deep-rooted need for a safe place. Her getaway in the Cascade Foothills is her secret. But when skeletal remains are unearthed—those of a murdered man linked to a notorious heist—Mercy realizes she isn’t the only one with something to hide.
Thirty years ago, an armored-car robbery turned deadly. The mastermind was captured. Four conspirators vanished with a fortune. One of them, it appears, never made it out of the woods alive. For Mercy and her fiancé Police Chief Truman Daly, their investigation opens old wounds in Eagle’s Nest that cut deeper than they imagined. Especially when a reckless tabloid reporter draws fresh blood. It’s clear to Mercy that somebody in this close-knit community is not who they seem to be.
Some are still shattered by the heist. Some still have reason to be afraid. But which one will kill again and again to hide three decades of secrets? To land this case, it’s up to Mercy to unmask a familiar stranger before someone else dies.
The Wall Street Journal bestselling series continues as Mercy Kilpatrick becomes embedded in the nightmare of a terrorist conspiracy.
The job: infiltrate a militia amassing illegal firearms in an isolated forest community. FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick is the ideal candidate. She knows Oregon. She’s near the compound. And having been raised among survivalists, Mercy understands the mind-set of fanatics. Lay low, follow rules, do nothing to sound an alarm, and relinquish all contact with the outside world. She’s ready to blend in.
As Mercy disappears into the winter hills, something just as foreboding emerges. Mercy’s fiancé Eagle’s Nest police chief Truman Daly, is faced with a puzzling series of murders—three men dumped in random locations after execution-style shootings.
Now, for Mercy, trapped in a culture where suspicion is second nature, and betrayal is punishable to the extreme, there is no way out. No way to call for help. And as plans for a catastrophic terrorist event escalate, there may be no way to stop them. Even if Mercy dies trying.
A Wall Street Journal bestselling series.

What’s worse, the young charge they were enlisted to protect has gone missing.

The victims—a city judge and an old woman living in the woods—couldn’t be more different. With the help of police chief Truman Daly, Mercy must find the killer before the body count rises. Mercy knows that the past has an edge on her. So does her family. How can she keep her secrets now…when they’re the only things that can save her?
