• Le Mitchell's Inn est un hôtel de charme, élégant, encerclé par la forêt, isolé dans les Catskills, à des kilomètres de tout. Il n'y a ni téléphone, ni internet. Juste le calme, les arbres autour, la neige et les montagnes. Ce que viennent justement chercher les clients qui fuient la frénésie de New-York, seuls ou en couple. Un peu de répit et de dépaysement. Jusqu'à ce qu'ils découvrent au réveil le corps de Dana Hart, morte au pied de l'escalier, puis un second cadavre le jour suivant. Qu'ils comprennent qu'ils sont totalement coupés du monde. Et que l'assassin est parmi eux.

  • Aylesford, une banlieue new-yorkaise pleine de charme, offre à ses habitants une qualité de vie exceptionnelle.

    Quand la belle et séductrice Amanda Pierce est retrouvée morte au fond d'un lac de la région, la tension atteint son point de rupture...

    Dans ce nouveau thriller électrisant, Shari Lapena revient à ce qu'elle sait faire de mieux : gratter la surface des apparences pour mettre au jour la part d'ombre en chacun de nous. Banlieue proprette, couples soudés, barbecues du dimanche... Méfiez-vous de tout le monde : l'assassin est parmi nous.

  • AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery. So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it. Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic. Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm--and one another.
