When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes without a trace, the residents of rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, launch a desperate search to find her. But few clues are unearthed, and before long another young woman disappears. As locals continue to vanish, residents begin to discover that they might not know those closest to them as well as they had thought. Lies and insecurities quickly surface, leading everyone to question one another...and their involvement in the disappearances. Meanwhile, an unstable, twisted killer is hiding quietly in their midst.

In this tautly crafted tale of psychological suspense, a recently widowed mother resorts to the unthinkable to protect her shattered family. But does she go too far? After mystery author Diane Christie loses her husband to suicide, she and her son move to the small coastal town of Fog Harbor, Massachusetts. Her daughter is attending college nearby, and Diane hopes that her family can now begin to heal. But rebuilding their lives after the tragedy isn’t so simple. Diane’s depressed college-age daughter, Alexa, still avoids her, critical of everything Diane does, and even her generally amiable teenage son, Josh, has started acting out. Diane pushes forward, focusing on her writing and her volunteer work at a local crisis hotline. She knows that healing takes time. But just when the glow of new love from an attractive admirer begins to chase away some of the darkness, a girl from Alexa’s college is found strangled. Worse still, the murderer uses the crisis hotline to confess to Diane…and he claims that she is the only one who can stop the killings. As more girls turn up dead, Diane races to solve a mystery she fears will hit terrifyingly close to home.

“Eat, pray . . . kick ass. Delivered with self-deprecating candor, Schorn's life lessons learned at the dojo will resonate with anyone who's ever tried to remodel a house, raise kids, cope with a health crisis, navigate office politics or hyperventilated—essentially anyone who's ever been slammed on the mat while testing for the black belt of life. Like the fighter herself, you can't put this one down.”—Mary Moore, author of The Unexpected When You're Expecting Susan Schorn led an anxious life. For no clear reason, she had become progressively paralyzed by fear. Fed up with feeling powerless, she took up karate. She learned how to say no and how to fight when you have to (even in the dark). Karate taught her how to persuade her husband to wear a helmet, best one bossy Girl Scout troop leader, and set boundaries with an over-sharing boss. Here this double black belt recounts a fighting, biting, laughing woman's journey on the road to living fearlessly—where enlightenment is as much about embracing absurdity and landing a punch as about finding that perfect method of meditation. Full of hilarious hijinks and tactical wisdom, Schorn's quest for a more satisfying life features practical—and often counterintuitive—lessons about safety and self defense. Smile at strangers, she says. Question your habits, your fears, your self-criticism: Self-criticism is easy. Self-improvement is hard. And don’t forget this essential gem: Everybody wants to have adventures. Whether they know it or not. Join the adventure in these pages, and come through it poised to have more of your own.

When Jennifer Mascia is five years old, the FBI comes for her father. At that moment Jenny realizes that her family isn’t exactly normal. What follows are months of confusion marked by visits with her father through thick glass, talking to him over a telephone attached to the wall. She and her mother crisscross the country, from California to New York to Miami and back again. When her father finally returns home, months later, his absence is never explained—and Jenny is told that the family has a new last name. It’s only much later that Jenny discovers that theirs was a life spent on the lam, trying to outrun the law. Thus begins the story of Jennifer Mascia’s bizarre but strangely magical childhood. An only child, she revels in her parents’ intense love for her—and rides the highs and lows of their equally passionate arguments. They are a tight-knit band, never allowing many outsiders in. And then there are the oddities that Jenny notices only as she gets older: the fact that her father had two names before he went away—in public he was Frank, but at home her mother called him Johnny; the neat, hidden hole in the carpet where her parents keep all their cash. The family sees wild swings in wealth—one year they’re shopping for Chanel and Louis Vuitton at posh shopping centers in Los Angeles, the next they’re living in one room and subsisting on food stamps. What have her parents done? What was the reason for her father’s incarceration so many years ago? When Jenny, at twenty-two, uncovers her father’s criminal record during an Internet search, still more questions are raised. By then he is dying of cancer, so she presses her mother for answers, eliciting the first in a series of reluctant admissions about her father’s criminal past. Before her mother dies, four years later, Jenny is made privy to one final, riveting confession, which sets her on a search for the truth her mother fought to conceal for so many years. As Jenny unravels her family’s dark secrets, she must confront the grisly legacy she has inherited and the hard truth that her parents are not—and have never been—who they claimed to be. In the face of unimaginable tragedy, Jenny will ultimately find an acceptance and understanding just as meaningful and powerful as her parents’ love. In a memoir both raw and unwavering, Jennifer Mascia tells the amazing story of a life lived—unwittingly—with criminals. Full of great love and enormous loss, Never Tell Our Business to Strangers will captivate and enthrall, both with its unrelenting revelations and its honest, witty heart. From the Hardcover edition.

"I looked out over the trees and the city and the cars below, all moving fast to a somewhere I knew nothing about. Life was in full motion and it felt like I was missing it. What I didn't see was the face of a man standing at the first window in the adjacent wing, staring out much like me. I didn't see him until it was too late." In response to an encounter with that man whose face he saw at the window, Dr. James Judge made a vow, early in his career, to be a different kind of doctor than his medical training had taught him to be. He vowed not to deny his own humanity. He vowed not to shrink from his patients' unseen suffering. He vowed he would ask the "probing and important questions, the ones that had nothing to do with an illness and everything to do with it at the same time." And he vowed he would listen. In the years that followed, Dr. Judge kept a journal. In The Closest of Strangers, Dr. Judge shares stories from that journal, stories that demonstrate the paradox of the patient-doctor relationship: that two people, essentially strangers, can somehow walk through life's most intimate moments together and, how, on that walk, they can both move toward healing. The stories inThe Closest of Strangers demonstrate the love, faith, courage, and remarkable, boundless resilience of the human spirit. Through these stories, you will be witness, as was Dr. Judge, to the powerful current of grace running through their lives-and his own. "These are the stories of my intimate strangers," Dr. Judge says of the narratives recorded in this powerful volume. "Faces that have haunted me, and, I suppose, haunt me still. People I barely knew, but in some ways came to know more deeply, maybe, than I knew myself." The stories Dr. Judge shares of his "intimate strangers" are all stories of courage and faith-in the face of fear, hopelessness, and devastating loss: In the course of a young boy's illness, a mother grows strong, a family grows close, and a community grows tender. A woman unable to keep up the "lacquered layers of expectations" in her "perfect" world courageously faces her emptiness and learns to experience the real substance of life. To bring her baby safely to term, an unmarried teenager fights a malignant tumor and a doctor's stern advice that she abort her pregnancy. A deeply troubled man entangled in addiction finds the courage to speak honestly about himself and to call on God to help him face and overcome his demons. A mother of a profoundly disabled child remains convinced that her little girl's life holds purpose-and so, miraculously, it does. "Suffering sometimes brings with it certain gifts," Dr. Judge writes. "Qualities and strengths beyond value or measure." The Closest of Strangers testifies to those qualities and strengths-and to the lessons learned by a doctor who listened to his best teachers, who sometimes became his healers as well.
