To all appearances, Ellie and Rob Beauman are a golden couple--blessed with good looks, success, and romantic chemistry that's off the charts. Surely their future together promises nothing but happiness. But on what should be the most wonderful day of her life, moments after saying "I do," a shocking secret threatens to shatter Ellie's happily-ever-after. She learns that the man she just married and loves with all her heart hides a dark past beneath his charismatic exterior. And the more harrowing truth she uncovers, the deeper Ellie is swept into a vortex of betrayal and uncertainty from which she may never escape.

Rob never dreamed that Ellie would be dragged into the deadly world he's trapped in--or used as a pawn against him. And Ellie could never have imagined how far she'd be forced to go to save the man she loves. Advance praise for Just Fall "What a terrific novel! Just Fall arrived in the mail this morning and I read the book in one sitting, which I haven't done for years. Nina Sadowsky's premise is original, her voice is clear, her storytelling skills are remarkable, and her pacing is perfect."--Sue Grafton "Character-rich and compulsively readable, Just Fall is a marvelous surprise. Exploring the universal need for family and human connection, and the costs incurred when those bonds are severed, Just Fall takes the reader on a wild ride through the psyches of two damaged people who hope to find redemption in each other. The writing is lush, the insights sharp. This novel is a winner."--Diane Keaton "A chilling story exploring the fine lines between love and hate, good and evil, Just Fall is a wild ride of unnerving twists and turns, right up to the last page."--Andrea Kane, New York Times bestselling author of The Silence That Speaks "Fast-paced, sexy, and creepy, Just Fall is a smart and slick read of pure, disturbing deliciousness. I couldn't put it down and was sorry to see it end. If you're a fan of suspense, this is a must-read!"--Pamela Falk, writer of The Wedding Planner"Just Fall is a novel to relish--smart, tense, sexy as hell, with writing that sweeps you up and away. In Ellie we see the making of a femme fatale as we never have before. Neither a psychopath nor the tired 'good girl turned bad,' Ellie is a truly modern everywoman."--Michelle Raimo Kouyate, executive producer of Silver Linings Playbook and Chocolat "In a devilish tale of love, lies, and betrayal, Sadowsky twists our most cherished romantic fantasies and exposes them as frightening facades hiding terrifying secrets. Gone Girl meets Body Heat, packed with all the sex and intrigue you want, yet never in the way you expect."--Ted Sullivan, writer and producer of Revenge and SupergirlFrom the Hardcover edition
Zone one : a zombie novel with brains by Colson Whitehead( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuilding civilisation under orders from the provisional government based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan. Armed forces have successfully reclaimed the island south of Canal Street - aka Zone One - but pockets of plague-ridden squatters remain. While the army has eliminated the most dangerous of the infected, teams of civilian volunteers are tasked with clearing out a more innocuous variety - the 'malfunctioning' stragglers, who exist in a catatonic state, transfixed by their former lives. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the civilian teams working in lower Manhattan. Alternating between flashbacks of Spitz's desperate fight for survival during the worst of the outbreak and his present narrative, the novel unfolds over three surreal days, as it depicts the mundane mission of straggler removal, the rigours of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder, and the impossible job of coming to grips with the fallen world. And then things start to go wrong. Both spine chilling and playfully cerebral, Zone One brilliantly subverts the genre's conventions and deconstructs the zombie myth for the twenty-first century
