Two of Joan Lowery Nixon's Edgar Award winners in one volume!
The Other Side of Dark:
Stacy wakes up in a room that’s not hers, in a body she doesn’t recognize, to discover she’s been in a coma for four years. Her mother is dead–murdered–and Stacy, recovering from a gunshot wound, is the only eyewitness. But the killer is not about to let her reveal his identity. . . .
“A top-rate thriller. . . . Nixon has written another compelling page-turner.”
The Name of the Game Was Murder:
Samantha is shocked when she meets her great-uncle, the famous novelist Augustus Trevor. He’s a mean-spirited man who has just invited–blackmailed–a group of celebrities to come to his island mansion and participate in a “game.” But when Augustus is found murdered, it’s up to Samantha to join the game–and win.
“An entertaining read. . . . The clues–and the way Sam, with lots of serendipity, puzzles through them–are clever indeed.”–Kirkus Reviews
