Woman on the Edge

Woman on the Edge

Morgan Kincaid is just standing on a subway platform, idly awaiting the train, until—right as it’s barreling into the station—a perfect stranger addresses her by name, hands over her CHILD, and jumps. And that's just where this story begins. With every new chapter comes a new twist and questions continue to swirl in Morgan’s mind. How did a woman she had never met know her name? And why did the stranger beg Morgan to take her baby, to "keep her safe"? Was she paranoid? Suffering from postpartum psychosis? You’ll be on the edge of your seat, devouring this book.

The Tenant

The Tenant

by Katrine Engberg

The Tenant is a Scandinavian crime drama (a.k.a. Nordic Noir) moody enough to rival The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Killing, and Marcella. In Katrine Engberg’s debut novel, translated from her native Danish, veteran Copenhagen police partners Jeppe Kørner and Anette Werner examine an exceptionally gruesome crime scene, but the truly bizarre part begins when they discover that the eccentric upstairs landlady, who also happens to be an author, included details of the murder in her unfinished manuscript. Is Esther the landlady involved, or is something else going on? The twists and turns of this bizarre case will keep you guessing until the end.
