Four authors put together an anthology each year, and readers get the rewards of their collaboration. This year, The Lost brings together NYT bestselling authors J.D. Robb and Patrica Gaffney along with Mary Blayney and Ruth Ryan Langan for some supernatural tales.

Missing in Death pits Detective Eve Dallas against an invisble killer. When the Staten Island Ferry becomes the backdrop for murder, the clues should be obvious. Eve is faced with both a missing passenger and an escaped murderer on a ship in the middle of the harbor. What really happened?

Patricia Gaffney continues to explore family relationships with The Dog Days of Laurie Summer. When Laurie wakes up after a terrible accident, she finds her world completely changed. Will she be able to adapt to her new role in the family or will she lapse back into a coma?

In a Beauty and the Beast-like tale, Mary Blayney offers readers Lost in Paradise. Here is the tale of a powerful curse, capturing an entire island in it's spell. Only the brave love of a shipwrecked nurse can break the enchantment.

A young woman, alone in the world, suddenly finds her family in Legacy. Author Ruth Ryan Langan takes readers to an Irish castle where Aidan O'Mara may find both a home and a soul mate.

The Lost is a fitting title for this book, perfect reading for a snowy winter's day.
