Book Cover of And She Was by Gaylin, Alison

On a summer afternoon in 1998, six-year-old Iris Neff walked away from a barbecue in her small suburban town . . . and vanished. Missing persons investigator Brenna Spector has a rare neurological disorder that enables her to recall every detail of every day of her life. A blessing and a curse, it began in childhood, when her older sister stepped into a strange car never to be seen again, and it’s proven invaluable in her work. But it hasn’t helped her solve the mystery that haunts her above all others—and it didn’t lead her to little Iris. When a local woman, Carol Wentz, disappears eleven years later, Brenna uncovers bizarre connections between the missing woman, the long-gone little girl . . . and herself.

Book Cover of Heartless by Gaylin, Alison

“Alison Gaylin is my new must read” (Harlan Coben). Everyone agrees. The thrilling author of Trashed is “a fresh new talent.”(Perri O’Shaughnessy) From the moment magazine editor Zoe Greene joins her lover Warren in San Esteban, an idyllic Mexican village, something is strange about the place and its people—from the black crosses that hang throughout the town to the blood-tipped spines of its strange indigenous plants to Warren’s odd disappearances. Then, when tourists are found murdered, Zoe begins to ask questions. At even greater risk, she’s finding the answers.

Book Cover of Hide Your Eyes (Samantha Leiffer Mystery #1) by Gaylin, Alison

Samantha Leiffer has a self-centered self-help guru for a mother, a cadre of off-kilter Greenwich Village pals, and an ambisexually-cheating ex-boyfriend. She doesn't need more grief. Then she spies two people dumping a dubious-looking ice chest into the Hudson River, and she has a chilling hunch about what's inside. Not being the kind of girl to let two psychos get away with murder, Sam sets out to unravel a mystery--and is soon being stalked by a sinister, shadowy figure who's wearing one-of-a-kind mirrored contact lenses. Now, aided by a tough (but still very hot) detective. Sam is poking into some unsavory places, and finding out more creepy stuff than she ever wanted to know.
