With Heartsick, Chelsea Cain took the crime world by storm, introducing two of the most compelling characters in decades: serial killer Gretchen Lowell and her obsessed pursuer Portland Detective Archie Sheridan. The book spent four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and garnered rave reviews around the world. But the riveting story of Archie and Gretchen was left unfinished, and now Chelsea Cain picks up the tale again. When the body of a young woman is discovered in Portland's Forest Park, Archie is reminded of the last time they found a body there, more than a decade ago: it turned out to be the Beauty Killer's first victim, and Archie's first case. This body can't be one of Gretchen's—she's in prison—but after help from reporter Susan Ward uncovers the dead woman's identity, it turns into another big case. Trouble is, Archie can't focus on the new investigation because the Beauty Killer case has exploded: Gretchen Lowell has escaped from prison. Archie hadn't seen her in two months; he'd moved back in with his family and sworn off visiting her. Though it should feel like progress, he actually feels worse. The news of her escape spreads like wildfire, but secretly, he's relieved. He knows he's the only one who can catch her, and in fact, he has a plan to get out from under her thumb once and for all. Chelsea Cain has topped her own bestselling debut thriller with this unputdownable, unpredictable, edge-of-your-seat read.

Damaged Portland detective Archie Sheridan spent ten years tracking Gretchen Lowell, a beautiful serial killer, but in the end she was the one who caught him. Two years ago, Gretchen kidnapped Archie and tortured him for ten days, but instead of killing him, she mysteriously decided to let him go. She turned herself in, and now Gretchen has been locked away for the rest of her life, while Archie is in a prison of another kind---addicted to pain pills, unable to return to his old life, powerless to get those ten horrific days off his mind. Archie's a different person, his estranged wife says, and he knows she's right. He continues to visit Gretchen in prison once a week, saying that only he can get her to confess as to the whereabouts of more of her victims, but even he knows the truth---he can't stay away. When another killer begins snatching teenage girls off the streets of Portland, Archie has to pull himself together enough to lead the new task force investigating the murders. A hungry young newspaper reporter, Susan Ward, begins profiling Archie and the investigation, which sparks a deadly game between Archie, Susan, the new killer, and even Gretchen. They need to catch a killer, and maybe somehow then Archie can free himself from Gretchen, once and for all. Either way, Heartsick makes for one of the most extraordinary suspense debuts in recent memory.

You said that one day you'll have the chance to love, I guess I didn't get that choice. I know someone sings the song of your heart, I guess I didn't have a voice . . . and I'm sorry. One Less Reason A big city boy falls in love with a small town girl. There's not much to do, there's not much to say, and the town would like to keep it that way. But when the two get involved this little town unravels, and chaos takes over. The further the boy falls, the deeper he gets-until he realizes it is too late. Unfortunately, things aren't always as they appear to be; so be careful, or you too may get caught up in something you're not ready for. Rob Massey Have you ever been in love before? Love that maybe you have lost because you did something you shouldn't have, or maybe because it was something that they didn't want. Ever get to a point where you say, "never again?" I will never again let someone in-not to hurt me-never to fall in love again. Then one day it happens. You don't know how or why, but it does. By the time you realize this, you are so deep that you can't pull yourself out. Then you find yourself in a situation that you never thought you could ever be in. Things don't seem real. These things just don't happen to anyone on a normal day. But then, who is to say what is normal? This is an experience that I wouldn't trade for the world-because it made me realize that I could love again. Even if it was the wrong person, in the wrong town, at the wrong time. But then . . . anything is possible when you're not expecting it to happen. Right? Bobby Loskey This book is dedicated to everyone that has experienced Life, Love, and Lies. If we never had these experiences, then deception would only be a "dream." Bobby Rose
