Karin Slaughter’s new novel Criminal traverses forty years, two chillingly similar murder cases, and a good man’s deepest secrets. Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. When a local college student goes missing, he’s inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner, and the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage their pasts have drawn them to for different reasons. Forty years ago, Amanda Wagner was taking her first steps in the boys’ club of the Atlanta Police Department. Now the case that launched her career has suddenly come back to life, intertwined with the long-held mystery of Will’s birth and parentage. And these two dauntless investigators will each need to face down demons from the past if they are to prevent an even greater terror from being unleashed.

And here’s a deluxe advance eavesdrop, read by Kathleen Early:

Fangoria’s Dreadtime Story “Wolf” by Max Allan Collins takes place at the rustic Wagon Wheel Lodge, where a vicious killer has struck. The police seek a mere man, but Jack Wolff, a handsome charmer spending inherited money to move from one hunting ground to another, has feasted upon the flesh of women for decades. His current prey is a lovely teenage girl with abusive parents. Jack plays the savior though he has something far darker in mind…will the lecherous werewolf strike again with his impunity, or does an unknown adversary wait in the darkness?

    Honestly don’t know if there is a better name for a thriller writer than Slaughter! Helps that she lives up to her great name,
    Max conducted a workshop in Moline that my son attended years ago. That’s when I started reading his stuff. I’ve never been disappointed and my son still writes for fun.
