Pretty Little Things / The Cutting Room

An omnibus of novels by

Two terrifying psychological thrillers from the bestselling author of RETRIBUTION.

Teenage girls are going missing in Miami. And for Special Agent Bobby Dees of Florida's Crimes Against Children squad their families' pain is all too real. So when thirteen-year-old Lainey Emerson doesn't return from her date with a guy she met online, he vows to do whatever he can to bring her back.

But as the missing reappear, gruesomely murdered, it becomes clear there's a serial killer at work. It's every parent's worst nightmare and, with the murderer always one step ahead of the police, can Dees save Lainey before it's too late?

The body of a student who went missing from a Florida nightclub is found in a dumpster. A horrifying scene, but nothing compared to what she had to endure before her murder. She was drugged and tortured - all broadcast live for the twisted pleasure of a snuff club.

Detective Manny Alvarez works the homicide alongside young hotshot Assistant State Attorney Daria DeBianchi. The media spotlight shines on the accused, a privileged playboy seen leaving the club with the victim. But without cast-iron evidence, Daria and Manny must dig deeper to crack the case.

The investigation exposes a terrifying connection between numerous unsolved murders and abductions stretching across the country. Their only lead is notorious serial killer William Bantling, who knows the society's secrets first-hand. But Bantling won't show his hand for free - he wants off Death Row.

For Manny and Daria, the nightmare is just beginning. And the only thing more devastating than this case's past is what lies ahead...
