“A deep dive into Los Angeles’ racial underbelly and tensions… two families forced to confront injustice…— The Los Angeles Times

 

In the wake of the police shooting of a black teenager, Los Angeles is as tense as it’s been since the unrest of the early 1990s. But Grace Park and Shawn Matthews have their own problems.

The prequel to Dracula, inspired by notes and texts left behind by the author of the classic novel

 

It’s 1868, and a twenty-one-year-old Bram Stoker waits in a desolate tower to face an indescribable evil. Armed only with crucifixes, holy water, and a rifle, he prays to survive a single night, the longest of his life. Desperate to record what he has witnessed, Bram scribbles down the events that led him here. A sickly child, Bram spent his early days bedridden in his parents’ Dublin home, tended to by his caretaker, a young woman named Ellen Crone. When a string of strange deaths occur in a nearby town, Bram and his sister Matilda detect a pattern of bizarre behavior by Ellen—a mystery that deepens chillingly until Ellen vanishes suddenly from their lives. Years later, Matilda returns from studying in Paris to tell Bram the news that she has seen Ellen—and that the nightmare they’ve thought long ended is only beginning…

You’ll be captivated from start to finish by this latest tale from the dominant mystery/thriller author of the mountain West…

 

Former sheriff’s investigator Cassie Dewell is trying to start her life over as in private practice. She’s her own boss and answers to no one, and that’s just the way she likes it after the past few tumultuous years. All that certainty changes when an old friend calls in a favor: she wants Cassie to help exonerate a man accused of assaulting a young woman from an influential family. Against her own better judgment, Cassie agrees. But out by the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana, twisted family loyalty runs as deep as the ties to the land, and there’s always something more to the story. The Kleinsassers have ruled this part of Montana for decades; the Iron Cross Ranch is their stronghold and they want to see Blake Kleinsasser, the black sheep of the family, put away forever for the assault…

  • Please Note: Our reading lists are comprised of traditionally published works. There are many independently published authors who produce quality work, but there are an even larger number who produce work that could be of much higher quality with greater attention to editing and overall production value. Since we cannot vet them all, we have chosen to restrict the PDI Book Club lists to traditionally published work.
