Hanging Hill by Mo Hayder
Published:  14 April 2011 by Bantam Press

Imagine finding yourself divorced and penniless. No skills and a teenage daughter to support. How would you survive? What would you be prepared to do? These are questions Sally Benedict has never really thought about, until her marriage to a successful business man fails. Her sister, Zoe, couldn't be more different from dreamy Sally. A detective inspector in the city of Bath, she loves her job, and oozes self-confidence in spite of a secret she struggles to keep secret. The two women haven't seen each other for almost twenty years. But the horrific murder of a teenage girl in the city is about to change all that. The sisters are dragged together by a sequence of events neither of them could have predicted - forcing them into a criminal world of extreme pornography and illegal drugs. Increasingly they find themselves confronting situations they'd never expected to face. And coming up with solutions they'd never dreamed possible. Until one of the sisters does something so horrific and desperate that there's no way back.......

Jenny's investigations will lead her to a powerful new religious group The Mission Church of God; and when it later emerges that Jacobs was also a member of the church, Jenny realises that more could link the deaths of these victims than she could have realised. Meanwhile Jenny must finally confront the demons of her past; and as her private life threatens to shatter, faces intense pressure from all angles to cease her investigations. But to Jenny Cooper, whose whole life has been governed by deception, the truth is everything...

Lucky Santangelo rules with her high profile casino and hotel complex – The Keys in Vegas.  Lennie, her ex-movie star husband is still writing and directing successful independent movies, while Max, her wild and gorgeous teenage daughter, is about to celebrate her 18th birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs.
Lucky has everything.  Family.  Love.  Life.
And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take from her, one way or the other.
Born a Prince in the small but affluent Middle Eastern country of Akramshar, Armand comes to America with his American mother at an early age, and rises to become a real estate business titan.  Armand regards women as nothing more than breeding mares or sexual playthings, so when his people inform him that the one property he covets more than anything, The Keys, is not for sale, he is shocked.  That a mere woman would turn down his offer to buy The Keys is unthinkable, and Armand vows to force Lucky’s hand whatever it takes.
And so the battle for power begins…


Before I Go to Sleep by SJ Watson
Published:  28 April 2011 - UK
14 June 2011 - USA

''As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I'm still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me ...'

Memories define us.

So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep?

Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love - all forgotten overnight.

And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story.
