Trailer: Silent Saturday by Helen Grant
The trailer for the new book from Helen Grant, Silent Saturday was released this week, it looks creepy and atmospheric and definitely has me intrigued by the book itself!

When one of the society’s founding members disappears, Veerle suspects foul play. But nothing can prepare her for the horror that is about to unfold when an old foe emerges from the shadows… No one is safe, and The Hunter will strike again…

Cover Reveal: Soul Storm by Kate Harrison
