No Turning Back

Point Woebegone. From the moment Daphne May steps off the train, it's clear that this small Maine town is aptly named. Even before she reaches Swallowtail, the windswept house where she'll be working as a governess, Daphne's sense of foreboding is justified.

Nowhere To Hide

A waitress's gruesome death sets the whole town on edge--especially the wealthy, eccentric Witherspoon family. There are rumors, hostile whispers. Daphne tries to adjust to her strange surroundings and difficult pupil, finding a friend in local property developer Gregory Winston. Then a killer strikes again--and again. . .

No Accidents

A psychopath is culling his victims with brutal precision, and Daphne's arrival is far from random. But knowledge may come too late to save her from the secrets in her past, with a killer hiding in plain sight. . .

"Brilliantly executed. . .this one is not to be missed!" --Kevin O'Brien, New York Timesbestselling author on All the Pretty Dead Girls

"If you like Dean Koontz, you'll love John Manning!" --Wendy Corsi Staub, New York Timesbestselling author
