The ForsakenThe Forsaken by Ace Atkins

Thirty-six years ago, a nameless black man wandered into Jericho, Mississippi, with nothing but the clothes on his back and a pair of paratrooper boots. Less than two days later, he was accused of rape and murder, hunted down by a self-appointed posse, and lynched. Now evidence has surfaced of his innocence, and county sheriff Quinn Colson sets out not only to identify the stranger’s remains, but to charge those responsible for the lynching. As he starts to uncover old lies and dirty secrets, though, he runs up against fierce opposition from those with the most to lose—and they can play dirty themselves.


The CursedThe Cursed by Heather Graham

When a man is murdered behind her place and his spirit asks for her help, Hannah O’Brien calls the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, an elite unit of paranormal investigators, to solve this present-day case that is linked to a historical mystery involving sunken treasure and a curse.
