Published in the United Kingdom in 2015, Christobel Kent's The Crooked House has drawn comparisons to works by the pantheon of British female literary suspense writers - Daphne du Maurier, Agatha Christie, P. D. James, and Kate Atkinson. In this darkly atmospheric psychological thriller, she accomplishes what those celebrated writers do best: She creates an insular world (a single house, a small town) where something sinister has occurred and subtly inflects all of it with the toxic residue of violence. Much like the unnamed narrator of Rebecca, Alison lives her life under the radar. She has no ties, no home, and she spends her days at a backroom publishing job. Which is how she wants it. Because Alison used to be a teenager named Esme, who lived in a dilapidated house by a bleak estuary with her parents and three siblings. One night, something unspeakable happened in the house, and Alison emerged the only survivor. In order to escape from the horror she witnessed, she moved away from her village, changed her name, and cut herself off from her past. Only now her boyfriend invites her to a wedding in her old hometown, and she decides that if she's going to have any chance of overcoming the trauma of what happened, she'll have to confront it. But soon Alison realizes that that night's events have left a terrible mark on everyone in the village, and she begins to suspect that they are all somehow implicated in her family's murder. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Struggling New York actress Alison has an outwardly good life: toned body, plenty of dates, a comfortable daily regimen. Still, she feels stagnant, empty, and as blocked as the river view from her Upper West Side apartment. Now divorced and in her mid-30s, she has never gotten past an early childhood trauma of being torn away from her brother and sister when her parents separated. Since then, nothing sticks. No one stays. She craves a sense of permanence, a place to call home.To shake things up, Alison makes a bold, possibly foolhardy move - she relocates to bureaucracy-riddled Rome, where she barely speaks the language, knows no one except the elusive Casanova who gave her one vacation night of pleasure, and has no acting work waiting. In a series of tragi-comic encounters, she tries to settle in to an exotic culture, looks for amore in all the wrong places, and begins to break into the acting world.After a serious accident, Alison’s hopes for an Italian fantasy life come crashing down. Back in New York, the personal tragedies and career obstacles pile up until salvation arrives from an unexpected source.A Place Called Grace is a humorous, hopeful, bittersweet contemporary memoir. It is a story of finding yourself amid the isolation and loneliness one can feel in modern-day life and shows how a seemingly unmoored existence can find its safe, solid center after all. 1.

After his dad commits suicide, Will tries to overcome his own misery by secretly helping the people around him in this exquisitely crafted story made up of 100 chapters of 100 words each, by award-winning and best-selling author Alison McGhee. Sixteen-year-old Will spends most of his days the same way: Working at the Dollar Only store, trying to replicate his late father’s famous cornbread recipe, and walking the streets of Los Angeles. Will started walking after his father committed suicide, and three years later he hasn’t stopped. But there are some places Will can’t walk by: The blessings store with the chest of 100 Chinese blessings in the back, the bridge on Fourth Street where his father died, and his childhood friend Playa’s house. When Will learns Playa was raped at a party - a party he was at, where he saw Playa, and where he believes he could have stopped the worst from happening if he hadn’t left early - it spurs Will to stop being complacent in his own sadness and do some good in the world. He begins to leave small gifts for everyone in his life, from Superman the homeless guy he passes on his way to work, to the Little Butterfly Dude he walks by on the way home, to Playa herself. And it is through those acts of kindness that Will is finally able to push past his own trauma and truly begin to live his life again. Oh, and discover the truth about that cornbread. 1.

In the museum Martin stands watch over the past. He has travelled a long way from his brutal childhood in the Loyalist heartlands of Belfast and built a life he never imagined he would have - a devoted wife, Alison, two children, Rachel and Tom, a respectable job. But the happiness he has found feels brittle. Rachel's academic success is launching her out of her proud father's orbit. Tom, eclipsed by his sister, has withdrawn into a fantasy world. Martin's gratitude to Alison is a gulf between them. He feels unworthy of his wife, his life, his luck. Returning home one night to find police cars waiting, Martin feels his sins must have finally caught up with him. But their news is wholly unexpected, a senseless tragedy. And in the face of this devastating trauma, which tears his fragile family apart, Martin finds the violence of the past is not gone but merely dormant; its call must be answered at last.

The Door at the Top of the Stairs

The psychological drama, The Door at the Top of the Stairs, tells of the trauma suffered by police detective Jesse Shaunessy, who is kidnapped and tortured, then thrown away by her department as damaged goods. Pulitzer nominated poet Harvey Stanbrough, who wrote about his own traumatic experiences during the Vietnam War writes, 'This is an absolutely excellent story, one of the best I've read in a good while. Not only is it a strong action/adventure, but it's also a poignant story of human beings caring for each other. The way Morgan and Ryland helped lead Jesse back from her PTSD is almost a novel unto itself.'  With so many men and women returning home emotionally traumatized from the war in the Middle East, retired Tucson Police Sergeant Alison Holt has written a fresh perspective on the psyche's ability to not only survive horrific events, but to actually rise above and overcome the debilitating aftermath of traumatic experiences. The psychological damage inflicted on the main character, Jesse Shaunessy, is soul wrenching, yet in the midst of the darkness, Holt somehow interjects a lightness and humor that allows the reader to take a deep breath before plunging back into the nightmare. Victoria Lucas, President of Lucas Script Consulting writes: 'I finally got some time yesterday and decided to read a couple of chapters. Well, I simply couldn't stop — I HAD to find out what happened — and I read the entire book (completely blowing off my other projects). You have certainly created a very chilling premise and three utterly memorable characters in Morgan, Ryland and Jesse.'
