In this modern thriller about one of the most brutal tales of revenge ever told, SLMN returns against a backdrop of sex workers, cocaine traffickers, West African magic, and cults.

Organized crime has taken hold in West Africa. Two opposing syndicates are locked in a bloody struggle for supremacy that has lasted a decade. The cost is high, the price paid in blood. There are the Onisagbe, or widow makers, whose claim to these streets dates back to the time when the city's first foundation stones were laid. For generations, they've ruled over Freetown. Then there's Awon Woli, a group of Liberians from over the border in Monrovia who have established in the area after fleeing their homeland during the civil unrest.

What started out as a deal, an insult for an insult, has turned into a life for a life. One of Awon Woli's lieutenants has kidnapped the Onisagbe kingpin's daughter, and hold her captive, in preparation for sacrifice. The ancient prophecies they follow demand that the girl die before her thirteenth birthday.

To get her back, the Oniṣagbe, are going to have to go to war, facing the threat of old gods and new. The only way that's happening is over the corpses of every last Awọn Woli foot soldier.

Three sisters navigate the horrors of the Middle Passage in a powerful historical novel about family, honor, and the will to live by the author of The Daughter of Union County.

Timbuktu, western Africa, 1706. Folashade, the fourteen-year-old daughter of a professor of linguistics, is sent south with her older sisters, Bibi and Adaeze, to endure the painful ceremony that a girl on the cusp of womanhood is expected to.

In Djenné, on the banks of the Niger, the sisters’ fate and that of their fellow Bambara is changed forever when they’re kidnapped, marched toward grueling indignities on Gorée Island, and eventually hauled aboard an English slaver bound for the Americas. Before they are inevitably separated, Folashade, Bibi, and Adaeze plot to keep their memories alive.

Drawing from her ancestry, Francine Thomas Howard gives an authentic voice to the horrors of the Middle Passage―and an empowered one to a girl who is determined to survive, to honor her father and Timbuktu, and to ensure that her and her sisters’ names will never be forgotten.

For a woman obsessed and a killer in her shadow, remembering the past becomes a mind game in a novel of psychological suspense by New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton.

Twin sisters Marisa and Clare Stockton were sixteen when Clare’s body was found in Virginia’s James River. No arrests were made. Fourteen years later, Marisa’s friends and dedicated career as a photographer help her to cope with the open wound of the past. But Marisa still feels the hurt—and the unsolved murder isn’t the only thing haunting her.

A recent car crash has erased ten days of Marisa’s memories—a black hole leading up to the accident that’s left her disoriented. Every text and phone call from that crucial missing time has vanished, along with her phone. A photograph she took of the river has disappeared. A new neighbor Marisa believes she knows introduces himself as if he were a stranger. And there’s the growing fear that her near-fatal accident was no accident at all. As dreams of Clare and nightmares of the crash begin to converge, so do two disturbing puzzles fourteen years apart.

Putting the pieces together could be fatal. As she struggles to remember everything, Marisa closes in on a killer—without realizing that he’s already closed in on her.
