On the surface, Ashford, Vermont, seems like a quaint New England college town, but to those who live among the shadowy remains of its abandoned mills and factories, and beneath its towering steel bridges, it's known as Burntown. Eva Sandeski, who goes by the name Necco on the street, has been a part of Burntown's underworld for years, ever since the night her father, Miles, drowned in a flood that left her and her mother, Lily, homeless. A respected professor, Miles was also an inventor of fantastic machines, including one so secret that the plans were said to have been stolen from Thomas Edison's workshop. According to Lily, this machine got Miles murdered. Necco has always written off this claim as the fevered imaginings of a woman consumed by grief. But when Lily also dies under mysterious circumstances, and Necco's boyfriend is murdered, she's convinced her mother was telling the truth. Now, on the run from a man called Snake Eyes, Necco must rely on other Burntown outsiders to survive. As the lives of these misfits intersect, and as the killer from the Sandeski family's past draws ever closer, a story of edge-of-your-seat suspense begins to unfurl with classic Jennifer McMahon twists and turns.

What she doesnt know is that her world is about to be turned upside down once again. Mary Benedict Austin is kidnapped by her husband Mandos mortal enemy, a Shoshone Indian named Kajika. Mary is pregnant, but her kidnapper doesnt know it. After she has been with him for five months, he realizes that she is pregnant. That is where the lies to save herself, her unborn baby, and her family in Albany begin. She convinces Kajika that the baby she is carrying is his and she tells him that she loves him and will never leave him. Kajika believes her because he is in love with her. Kajika is injured by a protruding stick on a log. His injury allows Mary to escape her bonds of slavery and return to her husband and family. Almost a year after her escape, Kajika comes back into her life. He arrives in Albany bent on revenge against Mary, who he believes not only stole his heart but also his child. His way of getting revenge is to kill Mando, Marys other children, burn down the town, and leave Mary gravely wounded as she watches him ride away with his child.

A chilling ghost story with a twist: the New York Times bestselling author of The Winter People returns to the woods of Vermont to tell the story of a husband and wife who don't simply move into a haunted house--they build one . . . In a quest for a simpler life, Helen and Nate have abandoned the comforts of suburbia to take up residence on forty-four acres of rural land where they will begin the ultimate, aspirational do-it-yourself project: building the house of their dreams. When they discover that this beautiful property has a dark and violent past, Helen, a former history teacher, becomes consumed by the local legend of Hattie Breckenridge, a woman who lived and died there a century ago. With her passion for artifacts, Helen finds special materials to incorporate into the house--a beam from an old schoolroom, bricks from a mill, a mantel from a farmhouse--objects that draw her deeper into the story of Hattie and her descendants, three generations of Breckenridge women, each of whom died suspiciously. As the building project progresses, the house will become a place of menace and unfinished business: a new home, now haunted, that beckons its owners and their neighbors toward unimaginable danger.
