The Book of Cold Cases
by Simone St. James
Praise For This Book:
"Lovers of true crime will get a kick out of this thriller that oozes atmosphere." --Silvia Moreno-Garcia, New York Times bestselling author of Mexican Gothic and Velvet Was the Night

"Simone St. James knows how to haunt you. The Book of Cold Cases is St. James at the top of her game,expertly weaving the past and the present to reveal a chilling tapestry of real world mystery and supernatural suspense that will have you turning pages well past your bedtime and jumping at every little sound." --Jennifer McMahon, New York Times bestselling author of The Drowning Kind

"No one writes a ghost story like Simone St. James, whose uniquely spooky thrillers are as chilling as they are captivating,and The Book of Cold Cases is St. James at her best.Steeped in atmosphere and spine-tingling chills, this gripping mystery will haunt you from the very beginning." --Laura McHugh, award-winning author of What's Done in Darkness

"This modern Gothic triumph is a cross between your most bingeworthy true crime podcast and The Haunting of Hill House. It's compulsively readable...but don't read it at night. The hauntings in this story scared me, and I write this stuff for a living." --Wendy Webb, author of The Keepers of Metsan Valo

"Prepare to lose some sleep when you dive into The Book of Cold Cases...[A] creepy thriller." --Pop Sugar

"You will sink into this novel faster than you would a peat bog." --Crime Reads

"[A] chilling paranormal thriller...St. James keeps the suspense high." --Publishers Weekly

"St. James is particularly gifted at doling out twists." --New York Times Book Review

"St. James' 2020 novel The Sun Down Motel was a master class in the dread, as is the terrific The Book of Cold Cases." --Sun Sentinel

"St. James delivers another superbly entertaining, genre-blending delight...When it comes to sending shivers down readers' spines, St. James gives Shirley Jackson a run for her money, and her latest addictively readable novel will have one sleeping with the lights on." --Library Journal, starred review
