The series turns tropes of violence against women inside out: this haunted FBI agent  and his team is on the hunt for a female serial killer. Who kills men. Lots of them. All over the country. For years.

If you love a fictional series based on real life horrors, like The Handmaid's Tale or Mindhunter, or if you're just in the mood to see the predators LOSE, read on.

Special Agent Matthew Roarke thought he knew what evil was. He was wrong.


 
Start with Book One - Huntress Moon, and the Award-winning audiobook!


Huntress Moon  - Audiobook

Voice Arts Award for Best Audiobook Narration

Add the audiobook narration to any Huntress ebook for $3.99 or less.




Huntress Moon and my amazing narrator, RC Bray, won a Voice Arts Award for Best Audiobook Narration, Crime & Thriller.

Bob is also the multi-award-winning narrator of the blockbuster audiobook of The Martian, and you can hear his stellar narration in all six Huntress books. (Shadow Moon audiobook out in May, with Bob producing, AND with alternate male/female narration, co-performing with Rinelle Harkin!)





------------------------------------------- SPOILERS ahead! -----------------------------------------------





Does Fate connect us?

Mass killer Cara Lindstrom is in the wind, after a deadly encounter which has left FBI Special Agent Antara Singh questioning her own sanity and fitness to serve. ASAC Matthew Roarke exiles Singh to Portland to work as an assistant to his old mentor, retiring profiler Chuck Snyder—but a series of mysterious break-ins alerts Singh and Snyder to an active threat revolving around an old case: a string of brutal murders of homeless teenagers on the streets of Portland and Seattle.

Singh and Snyder must go on the road and deep into Roarke’s and Cara’s pasts to discover a pattern of destiny and interconnection that holds the key to unsolved child murders, past and present.


 Pre-order for $2.99



If you thought Bitter Moon was complex (I did!) Shadow Moon takes it a couple of notches higher, which may be why I'm a little late on it. :) The book takes place over multiple timelines,
encompassing many episodes from Roarke's and Cara's lives within the framework of a heartbreaking, excruciating, present-day case.

You'll be going on a road trip that includes stops at some of my - I mean Cara's - favorite national parks.

You'll learn things you never knew about all the characters—details and backstories that I've been incorporating into the TV episodes.

On the procedural side, as always, I'm writing about real-life failures in the criminal justice system that could so very easily be fixed with obvious and implementable real-life solutions- IF this country decided to make the elimination of sexual violence and sexual homicide a priority.

And I hope the story will also inspire you to think about the role of destiny and synchronicity in your own life. For me, that's part of the mysterious magic of this world - the signs and convergences that let me know I'm on my path.

As always, I'm looking forward to talking to you about any and all of the books in the series, your synchronicities, your fears, your triumphs, your love lives...

Scary audiobooks! The Harrowing and The Price


NEW HAUNTED AUDIOBOOKS!     
      
I have brand new audiobooks of two of my Haunted thrillers, from Tantor Audio. (Sorry, US only right now.)

But - comment on this post, and I will send an audio CD to one of the commenters!


My ghost story The Harrowing was a Bram Stoker Award nominee for Best First Horror and an Anthony Award nominee for Best First Mystery. 

Left alone in their college dormitory over the long Thanksgiving break, five misfit students confront their own demons and a mysterious presence—that may or may not be real.

Read by Rebecca Mitchell.

Poltergeist meets The Breakfast Club as five college students tangle with an ancient evil presence. Plenty of sexual tension, quick pace and engaging plot.”
—Kirkus Reviews

 “Absolutely gripping…it is easy to imagine this as a film. Once started, you won’t want to stop reading.”
—The London Times

“Sokoloff’s debut novel is an eerie ghost story that captivates readers from page one. The author creates an element of suspense that builds until the chillingly believable conclusion.”
—Romantic Times Book Reviews

 “Scary without being gory, this book has just the right blend of psychological drama, mystery, romance, and creepiness.”
—VOYA Reviews



The Price is the second of my Haunted thrillers -
a love story/horror thriller set in the world’s creepiest hospital (some fascinating research went into that!)

A Boston district attorney suspects his wife has made a terrible bargain to save the life of their dying child. 

Read by Noah Michael Levine






The Price is a gripping read full of questions about good, evil, and human nature…the devastating conclusion leaves the reader with an uncomfortable question to consider: ‘If everyone has a price, what’s yours?’”
                                 —Rue Morgue magazine

“A heartbreakingly eerie page turner.”                                    
                                     —Library Journal
