Love a bone-chilling tale? Save 85 percent on this 'New York Times' bestseller with 32,000 five-star reviews. It centers around a struggling writer facing financial ruin who accepts a too-good-to-be-true job offer from an accomplished author. She soon discovers a secret autobiographical manuscript packed with horrifying admissions that could destroy lives.

"Guys, I won't lie. I got truly creeped out at times with this one," wrote one reviewer. "The way this book was written truly brought out a side of Hoover I never thought possible. I don't know how many times I asked myself if she was possessed while writing this one."

The first of 13 books in the popular Chronicles of St. Mary's series, this Amazon Editors' pick is perfect for fans of comedic historical fiction. Follow Dr. Madeleine Maxwell's adventures after being accepted to Britain's St Mary's Institute of Historical Research, where she re-lives history in the most madcap ways. This one's just $1!

"Most of us understand the disappointment of a book that promises 'laugh out loud' moments then fails to deliver. This book not only delivers but does so in almost a machine gun fashion - over and over again before you have the chance to recover from the previous," wrote someone who previously was not a fan of historical fiction. "As trite as it sounds, I picked up Book One and couldn't put it down. I eagerly pushed through the rest of the books and the collection of short stories in less than a week."

This Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction is an intense and dramatic ride, great for anyone who loves a long a winding narrative they can escape into. The protagonist is a 13-year-old boy who survives an accident that kills his mother. He starts a new life with a wealthy adoptive family on Park Avenue in New York City, where he grows into an adult enmeshed in the underbelly of the art world and still tormented by a longing to be reunited with his mother.

"This book held me spellbound from beginning to end," wrote a five-star reviewer. "I felt like I was there with the characters and that's quite an accomplishment...I didn't want to finish it but I couldn't wait to finish it to know the ending!"

Called 'a masterpiece' by Publishers Weekly, this LAPD-centric thriller _ part of a series — takes place during a pandemic. The protagonist, a night-shift detective named Renee Ballard, has to hunt down criminals on New Year's Eve. The blood-pumping piece of fiction is as timely as it gets.

"This book is very tightly written, drips with suspense throughout, and rings authentic with modern Los Angeles," wrote a fan. "As each chapter ends, I’m immediately drawn into continuing on to the next."
