A delicious and creepy story, which reminded me a bit of watching the Blair Witch Project movie. Alice Lindstedt, a documentary filmmaker, has been obsessed with the missing/vanished residents of the town dubbed "The Lost Village" since childhood. Her grandmother's entire family disappeared and what remained was a dead woman tied to a tree and an infant found crying in a building. She persuades a team to go and investigate and immediately unusual and threatening things begin to happen and they feel they are being watched...what IS the secret this abandoned village is hiding? Classic Scandinavian noir with a totally unexpected ending. It is fast paced and will keep you guessing. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap

A man and his young son move to Featherbank for a fresh start. Twenty years before, a psychopath murdered five boys. He was captured soon after, and thrown in jail.

Creepy, disturbing, and terrifying, this novel is absolutely difficult to put down, and its nonstop suspense will leave you reeling at its conclusion. ~ Reviewed by Angela Turon
