The 2014 death of a teenage boy reopens Salem’s most famous cold case, the 1989 Halloween murders of three young women, all descended from victims of the infamous Salem Witch Trials. With the accusation of Rose Whelan, once a renowned scholar who has fallen on hard times, the story becomes a modern day witch-hunt. A triple mystery with mythical roots, The Fifth Petal stands alone, but fans of The Lace Reader will welcome familiar characters.

In my new book, ONE PERFECT LIE, a handsome stranger gets a teaching job at a Pennsylvania school – but everything about him is a lie. He befriends a student to use as a pawn in a secret plan, but why? And how many will pay the price?
Booklist raves, “Scottoline keeps the pace relentless as she drops a looming threat into the heart of an idyllic suburban community, causing readers to hold their breath in anticipation.”

Jack Salvo is a wisecracking L.A. private investigator
who teaches philosophy part-time. He knows how to handle himself, and he knows Schopenhauer from Shinola. In Church of Spilled blood, he chases kidnappers, finds bullet-riddled bodies near the Hollywood Sign, and dodges bullets. Then he finds himself in Saint Petersburg, Russia. He’s a fish-out-of-water—an L.A. private dick in a strange land. Then things get tough.
