The Other Side of Dark
        Stacy wakes up in a room that's not hers, in a body she doesn't recognize, to discover she's been in a coma for four years. Her mother is dead--murdered--and Stacy, recovering from a gunshot wound, is the only eyewitness. But the killer is not about to let her reveal his identity....
"The compelling premise...and Nixon's mastery of suspense are gripping." - Publishers Weekly
"Tense and dramatic...[ The Other Side of Dark has a] quick pace, and the determined protagonist should attract and hold readers." - School Library Journal

He's a mean-spirited man who has just invited--blackmailed--a group of celebrities to come to his island mansion and participate in a "game." But when Augustus is found murdered, it's up to Samantha to join the game--and win.
