Mystery

We have the perfect books for Halloween here for adults! Our Mystery section includes many spooky murder mystery books to keep you at the edge of your seat!

Here are some popular mysteries:

HIDE AWAY

by Iris Johansen

Iris Johansen’s beloved forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is back, in a life-and-death adventure that begins in a well-guarded hospital room in Carmel, California, and ends explosively on a remote mountaintop in the Scottish highlands. Change is on the horizon for Eve and her beloved Joe Quinn, intensifying the danger that surrounds them and the young girl they’ve sworn to protect, Cara Delaney. With Cara’s enemies on the move, Eve can’t stay in the hospital, no matter what the doctors say. Her protective instincts in full gear, she decides that their best chance of survival is to get out of the country, and she turns to her daughter Jane McGuire for a creative solution.

For years Jane has been avoiding an inevitable quest–to find a treasure thought to be buried in Scotland–but she has finally succumbed to the pressure of John MacDuff to track it down. Eve and Cara join her in the remote mountains, but soon realize that nowhere is far enough away from the ruthless enemies who are in pursuit.

An emotionally intense story of greed and power, of mothers and daughters and the bonds–of blood and of honor–that tie them together and keep them apart, Hide Away is a high-octane thrill ride for fans old and new.

AMONG THE WICKED

by Linda Castillo

Chief of Police Kate Burkholder is called upon by the sheriff’s department in rural upstate New York to assist on a developing situation that involves a reclusive Amish settlement and the death of a young girl. Unable to penetrate the wall of silence between the Amish and “English” communities, the sheriff asks Kate to travel to New York, pose as an Amish woman, and infiltrate the community.

Kate’s longtime love interest, State Agent John Tomasetti, is dead set against her taking on such an unorthodox assignment, knowing she’ll have limited communication–and even less in the way of backup. But Kate can’t turn her back, especially when the rumor mill grinds with disturbing accounts of children in danger. She travels to New York, where she’s briefed and assumes her new identity as a lone widow seeking a new life.

Kate infiltrates the community and goes deep undercover. In the coming days, she unearths a world built on secrets and a series of shocking crimes and finds herself alone… and trapped in a fight for her life.

END OF WATCH

by Stephen King

In room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, something has awakened. Something evil. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the clinic for five years, in a vegative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake, and in possesion of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Retired police detective, Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now runs an investigation agency with his partner, Holly Gibney-the woman who delivered the blow to Hartsfield’s head that put him on the brain injury ward. When Bill and Holly are called to a suicide scene with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put their lives at risk, as well as those of Bill’s heroic young friend, Jerome Robinson and his teenage sister, Barbara. Brady Hartsfield is back, and planning revenge, not just on Hodges and his friend, but on an entire city.

With the End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion, combining the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the heart-pounding, supernatural suspense that has been his best selling trademark. The result is an unnerving book at human vulnerability and chilling suspense. No one does it better than King.

Story of the Jack O’Lantern by Katherine Tegen

On Halloween night, we dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, and carve jack-o’-lanterns. But what is really behind these holiday traditions?

It all started with a greedy man named Jack, who made a pact with the wrong person. When it comes time for Jack to repay his debt, the deal doesn’t quite end as he expected. . . .

Katherine Tegen weaves together legend and tradition to tell the story of one of Halloween’s most popular icons. With vibrant and dazzling illustrations from Brandon Dorman, The Story of the Jack O’Lantern answers one of the mysteries of that spooky night.

Crankenstein by Samantha Berger

Who is Crankenstein?

HE IS A MONSTER OF GRUMPINESS THAT NO ONE CAN DESTROY! MEHHRRRR!!! HE’S ALIVE!

He may look like any ordinary boy, but when faced with a rainy day, a melting popsicle, or an early bedtime, one little boy transforms into a mumbling, grumbling Crankenstein. When Crankenstein meets his match in a fellow Crankenstein, the results could be catastrophic–or they could be just what he needs to brighten his day!
