    How can you catch a killer who anticipates your every move?

    The Tableau Killer, Q, is once again on the loose, having escaped custody after killing the man sent to retrieve him. Trained since childhood by an enigmatic group known only as The Program, Q is a remote viewer—able to see what is distant, what is hidden—and has murdered entire families on his mission to learn what the Program did to him and his five peers.

    After capturing a researcher linked to the Program (and his entire family) Q promises to free everyone—as long as the captive man publicly denounces the Program’s immoral gene-editing practices.

    FBI Agent Lukas Stark—who busted Q the first time—must hunt him down again, this time partnering with Agent Jayla King. Stark once again turns to Gilles Garnier, another remote viewer, for his help and expert knowledge in catching one of his own kind. As the three of them race to stop the killings and free the captives, it becomes clear this is a case the FBI has no playbook for …

  • From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Eric Rickstad comes a shocking new thriller that you won’t be able to put down.

    FBI Special Agent Lukas Stark is failing. A serial killer, nicknamed the Tableau Killer, has bashed in the heads of an entire family—for the fifth time—and Stark is no closer to catching them. The bureau thinks he needs help, and while normally he’d take it, he absolutely refuses to entertain the delusions of the glorified psychic they’ve assigned to his team.

    Gilles Garnier has been assigned to this case precisely for his unconventional skills and his unorthodox methods. As a remote viewer, Garnier can view people, locales, and events from thousands of miles away—in real time, without the help of technology. Despite his credentials as a former Army Intel agent, Stark doesn’t trust him or his methods.

    But as the Tableau Killer speeds up the timeline, Stark and Garnier will have to learn to work together in order to catch up—or risk losing everything.

  • From the internationally bestselling author of I Am Not Who You Think I Am—a New York Times Thriller of the Year—comes Lilith, an incendiary powerhouse of a novel that strikes straight at the wounded heart of America.

    Mother. Hero. Villain. Killer. 

    After her son, Lydan, suffers traumatic injuries in a school shooting, single mom Elisabeth Ross grows enraged at men in power. If they won’t do anything to help end this epidemic of violence, she will. Believing it’s her destiny, she sets out to awaken the world to the cowards these men are and commits her own shocking act of violence. 

    Going by the name Lilith—the first wife of Adam who fled Eden rather than serve a man—she posts a video of her crime that reverberates throughout society.

    Praised by some, demonized by others, and hunted by the FBI and vigilantes alike, Elisabeth must keep her identity a secret as she tries to care for her son.

    As events take startling twists, Elisabeth begins to question her act of violence and the very roots and mythology of violence itself. Was her act justified, or has she become the monster that the original Lilith was accused of being?

    As the FBI draws closer and Lydan starts to display odd, terrifying behavior, Elisabeth plots to avoid capture and keep her son safe at all costs, fearing she’ll never escape what she’s done without losing her son forever. 

    Written with Rickstad’s singular command of language, human insight, and unnerving suspense, Lilith is a tale of our times. Tragic and profound, it echoes in the mind and lingers in the blood.

    From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author

    Wayland Maynard is just eight years old when he sees his father kill himself, finds a note that reads I am not who you think I am, and is left reeling with grief and shock. Who was his father if not the loving man Wayland knew? Terrified, Wayland keeps the note a secret, but his reasons for being afraid are just beginning.

    Eight years later, Wayland makes a shocking discovery and becomes certain the note is the key to unlocking a past his mother and others in his town want to keep buried.

    With the help of two friends, Wayland searches for the truth. Together they uncover strange messages scribbled in his father’s old books, a sinister history behind the town’s most powerful family, and a bizarre tragedy possibly linked to Wayland’s birth. Each revelation raises more questions and deepens Wayland’s suspicions of everyone around him. Soon, he’ll regret he ever found the note, trusted his friends, or believed in such a thing as the truth.

    I Am Not Who You Think I Am is an ingenious, addictive, and shattering tale of grief, obsession, and fate as eight words lead to lifetimes of ruin.
