    The Ridge
    Review
    For years, a lighthouse at the top of a hill called Blade Ridge has lit up the surrounding woods. But when the lighthouse keeper is found dead, strange things begin happening to the people and animals in the area.
    This story is slightly scary but is also a page turner.  Find this book in our catalog!

    The Hit
    Review
    This is the second book in the Will Robie series. I enjoyed the audiobook version ( read by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy)! I liked the fact that the new character, Jessica Reel is another assassin like Robie. What's really nice is that the readers in the audiobook versions carry through all 3 books in the series.   Find this book in our catalog!
