“What a box of tricks! This full-throttle thriller, dark and driving, rivals Agatha Christie for sheer ingenuity and James Patterson for flat-out speed. Swift, sharp, and relentless.” — A. J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
A brilliant, edgy thriller about four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to unmask and outwit a vicious psychopath.
A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger’s van. No help for miles. What would you do?
On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.
Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.
Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?
Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.
But who can she trust?
With exquisitely controlled pacing, Taylor Adams diabolically ratchets up the tension with every page. Full of terrifying twists and hairpin turns, No Exit will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you breathless.
Dan Rupley is a professional ghost hunter who’s never actually found a ghost. But his newest case is promising: a cursed Russian rifle allegedly haunted by a demonic force. As the legend goes, everyone who handles the weapon dies within 24 hours.

At any cost.
As the hours tick down, Dan’s paranormal investigation quickly twists into a mind-bending nightmare. He is pursued through time and memory by a terrifying (and very real) demon. And as for his lost love, Adelaide?
She might be the only one who can save him…
Young couple James and Elle Eversman are between jobs, between houses, and just suffered their sixth miscarriage. When their Toyota breaks down and strands them miles into the Mojave Desert, it seems only fitting – until James finds a bullet hole in the engine.
A mile away, William Tapp cycles the bolt on his .338 Lapua Magnum and munches Cheetos by the handful. He’s one of the finest marksmen on earth; a human ballistic computer with ice water in his veins and a penchant for murdering random motorists on the highway. It’s just a little red-state fun, right? Tapp knows his faraway victims can’t possibly fight back.
James and Elle are going to try anyway.
