April 4The Last Victim by Karen Robards.
Investigating the brutal murders of two vacationing families in sunny Virginia Beach, FBI agents Ryan Sinclair and Buzz Crane suspect the work of a notorious serial killer and tap the skills of preeminent clinical expert Charlotte Stone, who is also the culprit’s only known survivor.

May 2The Last Kiss Goodbye by Karen Robards.
Charlotte “Charlie” Stone has dedicated her career as a psychiatrist to exploring the darkest territory of all: the hearts and minds of serial killers. It’s a job she’s uniquely suited for, thanks to the secret talent that gives her an uncanny edge–Charlie can see dead people, whose tormented spirits cry out to her for the justice only she can provide. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of charismatic bad boy Michael Garland. But there’s little time for romance when murder comes pounding at Charlie’s door in the form of a terrified young woman fleeing a homicidal maniac. Saving her life places Charlie squarely in the cross-hairs of a sadistic predator nicknamed “the Gingerbread Man,” notorious for manipulating his victims like pawns in a deadly chess game.

June 6Her Last Whisper by Karen Robards.
An expert in the psychology of serial killers, Dr. Charlotte Stone’s faced down more than her share of human monsters. But Charlie can also communicate with the spirits of those who die violently. Federal agent Tony Bartoli asks her to ride shotgun on a risky mission. Beautiful single women are vanishing from Las Vegas hotels at night. All signs indicate that a psychopath is on the prowl in Sin City, and Bartoli’s FBI colleague Lena Kaminsky has reason to fear that her missing sister may be just the killer’s type.
