When their hard-drinking, but loving, father dies in a car accident, teenage brothers Kyle and Klint Hayes face a bleak prospect: leaving their Pennsylvania hometown for an uncertain life in Arizona with the mother who ran out on them years ago. But in a strange twist of fate, their town's matriarch, an eccentric, wealthy old woman whose family once owned the county coal mines, hears the boys' story. Candace Jack doesn't have an ounce of maternal instinct, yet for reasons she does not even understand herself, she is compelled to offer them a home. Suddenly, the two boys go from living in a small, run-down house on a gravel road to a stately mansion filled with sumptuous furnishings and beautiful artwork--artwork that's predominantly centered, oddly, on bullfighting. And then there's Miss Jack's real-life bull: Ventisco--a regal, hulking, jet-black beast who roams the land she owns with fiery impudence

"On the surface, Chief Dove Carnahan is a true trailblazer who would do anything to protect the rural Pennsylvanian countryside where she has lived all fifty of her years. Traditional and proud of her blue-collar sensibilities, Dove is loved by her community. But beneath her badge lies a dark and self-destructive streak, fed by a secret she has kept since she was sixteen. When a girl is beaten to death, her body tossed down a fiery sinkhole in an abandoned coal town, Dove is faced with solving the worst crime of her law enforcement career. She identifies the girl as a daughter of the Truly family, a notoriously irascible dynasty of rednecks and petty criminals. During her investigation, the man convicted of killing Dove's mother years earlier is released from prison. Still proclaiming his innocence, he approaches Dove with a startling accusation and a chilling threat that forces her to face the parallels between her own family's trauma and that of the Trulys"--

"From the New York Times bestselling author of Back Roads comes a fast-paced literary thriller about a forensic psychologist forced to face his own demons after discovering his small hometown terrorized by a serial killer. Dr. Sheridan Doyle--a fastidiously groomed and TV-friendly forensic psychologist--is the go-to shrink for the Philadelphia District Attorney's office whenever a twisted killer's mind eludes other experts. But beneath his Armani pinstripes, he's still Danny Doyle, the awkward, terrified, bullied boy from a blue-collar mining family, plagued by panic attacks and haunted by the tragic death of his little sister and mental unraveling of his mother years ago. Danny returns home to Lost Creek, a town grappling with its own ghosts, and comes face-to-face with the town's legacy of violence--when a dead body is discovered at the famous gallows where a band of rebellious Irish miners was executed 100 years ago. The body also has an eerie connection to the wealthy mining family behind the miners' deaths. When he teams up with a veteran detective and father figure to get to the bottom of these heinous crimes, Danny realizes that he's dangerously close to uncovering haunting secrets from his own past ... In this masterfully told psychological thriller in the vein of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl, the past and present collide to put Lost Creek's long-lived ghosts to bed"--

<em>Ángeles en llamas</em> está a la altura de lo que promete. Es un <em>thriller</em> tan bien armado que hasta el final, uno de los más impactantes que el lector pueda recordar, todo parece posible . <br /><em>Library Journal </em><br /><br />A sus cincuenta años, la comisaria de policía Dove Carnahan haría cualquier cosa por proteger la pequeña población de Pensilvania donde ha pasado toda su vida. Aunque Dove es una figura muy querida y respetada por la comunidad, esconde tras su placa un carácter autodestructivo, alimentado por un secreto que guarda desde la adolescencia. Cuando el cadáver de una joven, perteneciente a uno de los clanes más conflictivos de la región, aparece medio quemado en una zanja, la comisaria se enfrentará al peor crimen de su carrera, un asesinato que revelará además el inquietante paralelismo entre los traumas de dos familias: la de la chica muerta y la suya propia.<br /><br />En este intenso y feroz thriller psicológico, Tawni O'Dell nos ofrece una sobrecogedora historia sobre los abismos que se originan cuando presente y pasado colisionan con virulencia, al tiempo que reflexiona sobre esas misteriosas pulsiones que a menudo empujan a los hombres a cruzar la línea de sombra e, irreversiblemente, adentrarse de lleno en la oscuridad
