Intrepid journalist Kitty Weeks returns in the second book in this acclaimed WW1-era historical mystery series to investigate the death of a boarding school student.

When Kitty's latest assignment for the New York Sentinel Ladies' Page takes her to Westfield Hall, she expects to find an orderly establishment teaching French and dancing-but there's more going on at the school than initially meets the eye.

Tragedy strikes when a student named Elspeth is found frozen to death in Central Park. The doctor's proclaim that the girl's sleepwalking was the cause, but Kitty isn't so sure.

Determined to uncover the truth, Kitty must investigate a more chilling scenario-a murder that may involve Elspeth's scientist father and a new invention by a man named Thomas Edison.

Elvira Carr believes in rules. She also strongly believes in crisp schedules, no surprises, and taking people at face value. Not that she sees many people ― her overbearing mother keeps the twenty-seven year old mostly at home, to avoid any incidents...

But when her mother has a stroke, Elvira is suddenly alone and on her own. She ingeniously comes up with seven ironclad rules to guide her days. Armed with her rules, a Japanese notebook from her late father, and advice from her flighty neighbor, she takes charge of herself ― and realizes that something isn't quite right about the life she thought she knew.

She'll need all the clever thinking and curious charm she can muster to unravel the mystery of what happened to her family and to pave the way to living her own life, her way.

This is no accident.
This is no act of God. 
This is Blackout.

A terrifyingly plausible million-copy selling debut disaster thriller.

When the lights go out one night, no one panics. Not yet. The lights always come back on soon, don't they? Surely it's a glitch, a storm, a malfunction. But something seems strange about this night. Across Europe, controllers watch in disbelief as electrical grids collapse. There is no power, anywhere.
A former hacker and activist, Piero investigates a possible cause of the disaster. The authorities don't believe him, and he soon becomes a prime suspect himself. With the United States now also at risk, Piero goes on the run with Lauren Shannon, a young American CNN reporter based in Paris, desperate to uncover who is behind the attacks. After all, the power doesn't just keep the lights on―it keeps us alive.
