Till Death – Jennifer L. Armentrout

My heart started racing as my gaze trekked to the rearview mirror. My brown eyes seemed too big and wide at the moment. I looked freaked out, and I was. Taking a deep breath, I grabbed my purse and opened the door of my Honda, stepping out. Cold air immediately coasted under the thin sweater […]

Three Things About Elsie – Joanna Cannon

‘How did you fall, Flo?’ they’ll ask when they find me. ‘Did you feel dizzy? Were you wearing your glasses? Did you trip?’ They’ll work as they talk. Putting a cuff around my arm and fastening a plastic clip on my finger, and unwrapping all the leads from one of their machines. Someone will shine […]

Three Breaths – Belle Brooks

The downlight above Maloney’s head creates the illusion of a halo as he stares at the television. He seems relaxed with his arms outstretched on top of the lounge, and his knees spread wide apart from each other. His sneakers start where his blue jeans cut off, and they appear almost brand new when I […]

Three Hours – Rosamund Lupton

A moment of stillness; as if time itself is waiting, can no longer be measured. Then the subtle press of a fingertip, whorled skin against cool metal, starts it beating again and the bullet moves faster than sound. It smashes the glass case on the wall by the headmaster’s head, which displays medals for gallantry […]

This is How it Ends – Eva Dolan

This had been a happy home once. You could see it in the scatter of light patches on the walls where photographs of a large and loving family had hung. In the placement of the his-and-hers armchairs, positioned close enough that they could reach out and hold hands as they watched television. They’d done that […]

This Fallen Prey – Kelley Armstrong

The season may have officially started two months ago, but it isn’t truly spring in Rockton until we bury our winter dead. Dalton and Anders are digging the shallow grave. I’m wandering, trying to calm Storm. As a future tracking dog, she needs to know the smell of death. I’ve read books that say cadaver […]

This Darkness Mine – Mindy McGinnis

I’m digging splinters out of my gums again. The closest music store carries only cheap reeds, and Mom and Dad won’t pay shipping for something that weighs practically nothing. The end result is me leaning over the girls’ bathroom sink with Brooke’s tweezers, trying to focus on the sliver by my canine rather than on […]

Thief’s Mark – Carla Neggers

Colin Donovan eyed his wife of almost two weeks, a glass of champagne in front of her on their low table at the crowded, upscale bar at the landmark Shelbourne Hotel in the heart of Dublin. Since he knew Emma Sharpe as well as he did, he noticed the slight pull in her eyes that […]

Then She Was Gone – Lisa Jewell

Laurel let herself into her daughter’s flat. It was, even on this relatively bright day, dark and gloomy. The window at the front was overwhelmed by a terrible tangle of wisteria while the other side of the flat was completely overshadowed by the small woodland it backed on to. An impulse buy, that’s what it […]

Then She Vanishes – Claire Douglas

I sit back in my chair and re-read the article. The deadline is in twenty minutes. It’s taken me nearly an hour to write just five paragraphs. If I don’t send it soon it won’t make the front page tomorrow, and my news editor, Ted, will have my guts for garters (one of his favourite […]

The Women – S.E. Lynes

The light in Rome is like no other. Like yellow dust it falls over the restless queues that coil around the Colosseum, over the flaking ruins of the Forum, over the traffic cop who stands signalling in the middle of Piazza Venezia. It falls over the hordes on the Via del Corso, the tourists gasping […]

The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream – Christina Dodd

Benedict Howard was used to having women look at him. He had money. He had power. He was ruthless. People saw that. In particular, women looked at him. As they always told him, they found him interesting. Now, the most beautiful woman in the world looked through him. Not over him. Not around him. Through […]

The Woman Next Door – Sue Watson

I’ll never forget the first time I saw Amber. It was late spring and she was driving down Mulberry Avenue in an open-topped sports car, with sun-burnished red hair, huge dark glasses, a low-cut top and those full, red lips. You had to look twice – she was just different from everyone else on our […]

The Woman Next Door – Cass Green

Cough, snif , sigh. Snif , sigh, cough. And so it goes on. Mary, at the next terminal, is a veritable one-person orchestra of bodily sounds. It must be something to do with her size. She’s constantly spilling out of herself, like there’s someone bigger trapped inside. She’s not the only person I’m finding distracting […]

The Woman in the Window – A.J. Finn

Her husband’s almost home. He’ll catch her this time. There isn’t a scrap of curtain, not a blade of blind, in number 212—the rust-red townhome that once housed the newlywed Motts, until recently, until they un-wed. I never met either Mott, but occasionally I check in online: his LinkedIn profile, her Facebook page. Their wedding […]

The Woman in the Park – Teresa Sorkin, Tullan Holmqvist

A piercing scream cut through the night. Ripped from her sleep, Sarah sat up, gasping for air. Her heart was pounding in her chest and her breathing was fast and hot. Where was she? She scanned the darkness, searching for clues. She had no idea. Her silk nightgown clung to her body, and the sheets […]

The Woman in Cabin 10 – Ruth Ware

The first inkling that something was wrong was waking in darkness to find the cat pawing at my face. I must have forgotten to shut the kitchen door last night. Punishment for coming home drunk. “Go away,” I groaned. Delilah mewed and butted me with her head. I tried to bury my face in the […]

The Woman at 46 Heath Street – Lesley Sanderson

Tap, tap, tap. My pace quickens as it always does when I get to the end of the lane and turn the corner into Heath Street, this winding, terraced street tucked away in front of Hampstead Heath. Trees rustle in the late-autumn breeze. My mood is a muddle of feelings: joy at returning home; sadness […]

The Wives – Tarryn Fisher

He comes over on Thursday every week. That’s my day, I’m Thursday. It’s a hopeful day, lost in the middle of the more important days; not the beginning or the end, but a stop. An appetizer to the weekend. Sometimes I wonder about the other days and if they wonder about me. That’s how women […]

The Winters – Lisa Gabriele

Last night Rebekah tried to murder me again. It had been a while since I’d had that dream, not since we left Asherley, a place I called home for one winter and the bitterest part of spring, the dream only ever recurring when Max was gone and I’d find myself alone with Dani. As always, […]
