Benny loves his pretty little dolls. As long as they do exactly as they're told. He keeps them perfect by brushing their hair and gives them pretty dresses to wear. He likes to toy with them late at night. One so timid but the other likes to fight. When his favorite doll runs away... despite the other doll promising to stay, his heart becomes broken, and he can't help but cry. He wants her back home, or his pretty little doll must die. Have you ever had to make a decision that haunts you every single day for the rest of your life...the life you stole back? I have. I ran for my survival, rocks, and twigs cutting into the soles of my feet, my lungs burning and screaming for rest, every muscle tensed and fighting along with me for existence. I left her. I ran, ran, ran-from Benny and his lone, pretty little doll-until I couldn't remember where to find them again. I'm sorry.

Carmilla is a Gothic novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. The story is presented by Le Fanu as part of the casebook of Dr. Hesselius, whose departures from medical orthodoxy rank him as the first occult doctor in literature. The story is narrated by Laura, one of the two main protagonists of the tale. Laura begins her tale by relating her childhood in a "picturesque and solitary" castle in the midst of an extensive forest in Styria, where she lives with her father, a wealthy English widower, retired from the Austrian Service. When she was six years old, Laura had a vision of a beautiful visitor in her bedchamber. She later claims to have been bitten on the chest, although no wounds are found on her. 12 years later, Laura and her father are admiring the sunset in front of the castle when her father tells her of a letter he received earlier from his friend, General Spielsdorf. The General was supposed to bring his niece, Bertha Rheinfeldt, to visit the two, but the niece suddenly died under mysterious circumstances. The General ambiguously concludes that he will discuss the circumstances in detail when they meet later.

When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned.

The first in James Carol's thrilling Jefferson Winter series, Broken Dolls offers rapid-fire suspense and a chilling look into the mind of a criminal - and into the mind of the one man who might be able to catch him. Ex-FBI star profiler Jefferson Winter is no ordinary investigator. An eccentric genius and self-described geek with a passion for Mozart, he is haunted by the legacy of his notorious serial killer father...and not likely to admit this may be why he has such a phenomenal insight into the psychology that drives the criminals he hunts. The former G-man is now a sought after freelance consultant, jetting around the globe helping local law enforcement agencies with their toughest cases. When Detective Investigator Mark Hatcher calls from Scotland Yard about a particularly disturbing case, Winter leaves his native California for the chilly streets of London to help track down a sadistic serial kidnapper. Four victims, all young women, all tortured and then lobotomised. None of them able to tell the police the name of their attacker. None of them able to live normal lives again. Just broken dolls, played with then discarded. When another young woman goes missing, Winter has to race against the clock to identify the attacker and find the latest victim before it's too late. James Carol's breakout debut novel takes readers on an action-packed rollercoaster ride that fans of Criminal Minds, Silence of the Lambs, Sleepy Head, and the Jack Reacher and Alex Cross series won't want to miss. More Jefferson Winter Thrillers: Jefferson Winter returns in Presumed Guilty (July 2014), the first in a series of ebook novellas chronicling Winter's FBI days, and Watch Me (August 2014), the second full-length novel in the Winter series. Also in the works: Television rights for Broken Dolls have been optioned by Sprout Pictures, the production company behind the Emmy award winning SKY comedy Moone Boy. The company is planning to adapt the novel into a major TV series, provisionally titled WINTER.
