Decades ago in the small town of Fogg Lake, “The Incident” occurred: an explosion in the cave system that released unknown gases. The residents slept for two days. When they woke up they discovered that things had changed — they had changed. Some started having visions. Others heard ominous voices. And then the scientists from a mysterious government agency arrived…

Determined not to become research subjects in an experiment that no one would explain, the people of Fogg Lake blamed the “hallucinations” on some local mushrooms cooked in a stew that everyone had eaten at a celebration. The story worked. The researchers left town. But now it has become apparent that the weird effects of The Incident are showing up in the descendants of Fogg Lake…

Catalina Lark and Olivia LeClair grew up in Fogg Lake and have been best friends for years. They now own an investigation firm, a business that allows them to use what they call their “other sight” to help solve cases. Things are going well until the night Olivia disappears. Cat frantically begins the search for her friend. When Slate Arganbright, an agent from a shadowy organization known only as The Foundation, shows up, she has no choice but to accept his help.

The duo discovers that someone is hunting the two people who witnessed a murder that took place in the Fogg Lake caves fourteen years ago. The killer was never caught. The witnesses were Cat and Olivia. Someone intends to make both women vanish.


Publishers Weekly: “Krentz masterfully balances mystery, romance, and the paranormal. Readers are sure to be hooked on this new series.”

Booklist *Starred* “…Expertly entwines high-stakes suspense, a paranormal-spiked plot, and a generous dollop of sexy romance with delightfully dry wit…launches a thrilling and chilling new series…” John Charles

An unconventional woman and a man shrouded in mystery walk a tightrope of desire as they race against a killer to find a top secret invention in this New York Times bestselling novel from Amanda Quick.

Former trapeze artist Amalie Vaughn moved to Burning Cove to reinvent herself, but things are not going well. After spending her entire inheritance on a mansion with the intention of turning it into a bed-and-breakfast, she learns too late that the villa is said to be cursed. When the first guest, Dr. Norman Pickwell, is murdered by his robot invention during a sold-out demonstration, rumors circulate that the curse is real.

In the chaotic aftermath of the spectacle, Amalie watches as a stranger from the audience disappears behind the curtain. When Matthias Jones reappears, he is slipping a gun into a concealed holster. It looks like the gossip that is swirling around him is true—Matthias evidently does have connections to the criminal underworld.

Matthias is on the trail of a groundbreaking prototype cipher machine. He suspects that Pickwell stole the device and planned to sell it. But now Pickwell is dead and the machine has vanished. When Matthias’s investigation leads him to Amalie’s front door, the attraction between them is intense, but she knows it is also dangerous. Amalie and Matthias must decide if they can trust each other and the passion that binds them, because time is running out.
