The tense, chilling story of four women haunted by a childhood trauma.

When they were children, Sae, Maki, Akiko and Yuko were tricked into separating from their friend Emily by a mysterious stranger. Then the unthinkable occurs: Emily is found murdered hours later.

Sae, Maki, Akiko and Yuko weren't able to accurately describe the stranger's appearance to the police after the Emili's body was discovered. Asako, Emily's mother, curses the surviving girls, vowing that they will pay for her daughter's murder.

Like Confessions, Kanae Minato's award-winning, internationally bestselling debut, PENANCE is a dark and voice-driven tale of revenge and psychological trauma that will leave readers breathless.

Lieutenant Colonel Paul Richter spent twenty years serving as a Special Forces officer in the United States Army. His career came crashing down when an errant bullet fired by a tribal fighter kills the son of a Saudi prince. In an act of political expediency, Paul Richter was unceremoniously retired from the Army. Without a career, and politics preventing him from obtaining a position with an overseas military contractor, Richter's future appeared bleak. Jack Cullen, a friend of Richter's with ties to the Central Intelligence Agency, approaches Richter with an unusual offer. Cullen's cousin is the principal of a rural South Georgia high school. The principal has had a problem hiring and retaining faculty. Cullen offers to assist in placing Richter as a teacher at the school. Cullen promises Richter that when the political climate changes, he will bring Richter into the Agency as a paramilitary contractor. Despite his misgivings, Richter accepts Cullen's offer and finds himself in the small town of Wilson, Georgia. He meets Celia Farley, the attractive real estate agent who helps him find a home in Wilson. A relationship develops between them. Celia has an established life in Wilson: a career, two teenage children she adores, and a domineering ex-husband that she doesn't. Richter finds that his military training and battles around the world have left him ill-prepared to deal with the complexities of a romantic relationship. To his surprise, Richter settles quickly into Wilson and finds that he is adapting well to the community. He likes his job and likes his students, especially a young man named Gator who is standing at his own crossroads. Richter starts thinking about Wilson as his home. But trouble comes to Richter in the form of local crime boss Baxter Ross and Ross' incongruous dealings with the shadowy new priest of the local Hispanic community's church. Ross is a bully, and reacts violently when Richter implacably refuses to bend to Ross' demands. Ross sends his gang after Richter, and seeks the priest's assistance in dealing with the stubborn teacher's refusal to accept Ross' domination. The priest is not who he says he is. He is in rural Georgia on a mission vastly different than saving souls. Because of his dealings with Ross, Richter finds that he must determine who the priest really is, and what he is doing in Wilson. To follow that course, Richter must resurrect skills from his Special Forces days that he thought were behind him. Those skills, the violence that arose from them, and Richter's calm reliance on those skills strain his relationship with Celia. She believes they can build a life together, but Richter seems eager once again to go to war. With the help of Celia, Richter confronts his own identity and the possibility of love and happiness with her in Wilson. She offers him the chance for love and acceptance. Richter wants to love Celia and be part of her life, but he has one last battle. Richter calls on some old friends and prepares for the ultimate confrontation with Ross and the priest. He fights his own demons as he seeks to distinguish the evil that they represent from the bitter violence that has marked his life. Richter confronts friends and enemies alike as he stakes his claim on who he is amidst the tumult of good against evil, love, trust, betrayal, and grace freely given.

Six months in a secluded, Japanese village. To Harper Gray, it's the perfect getaway and a place to write her next book. The best part is she'll be all alone, safe in a mountainside retreat and isolated from the rest of the world. Because evil comes in many forms, and she's already lost too much. Reid Ellis knows the village of Chuujitsu, its culture, and its customs. When he agrees to aid the reclusive author, he can't understand why she hides herself away. Her past still casts a long shadow, but he's determined to make her feel safe. When a terrified young girl, priests who stalk the night, and ancient Shinto laws become part of the story, Harper and Reid can't tell truth from legend. The two become entangled in each other, but Harper still finds danger at every turn. Is there something more to the odd symbol she keeps seeing? Or is love the only thing she needs to fear?

November 1262 is an unlikely season for war. But war nonetheless is coming to the March, the wild borderland between England and Wales. Not the war that most fear between the supporters of the King and the rebellious barons uniting around Simon de Montfort, but with Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the Welsh warlord who styles himself Prince of Wales and who has united the fractious tribes of his land against the English. The English are uncertain, however, where and when the blow will fall. So, Sir Geoffrey Randall, coroner of Herefordshire, dispatches his deputy, the impoverished knight Stephen Attebrook, to the border town of Clun to make contact with a spy in order to learn Llywelyn’s plans. At the same time, Randall directs Attebrook to investigate the murder of a monk found dead in his bed at the Augustine priory of St. George at Clun. The assignment casts Attebrook into the middle of a desperate feud between the priory and the lord of Clun and reveals a forbidden love that can only result in suffering and death.

A horrific take on the true story of the Winchester haunted house and one woman's mission to wash away the blood curse of the Winchester rifle from claiming her own life and soul.

This is a tale about guilt, ghosts, and guns...of how fortune brings misfortune, as a grim and determined woman oversees the construction of a house twenty four hours a day for twenty years with the simple motto of keep busy building or get busy dying.

"Peter Tomasi and Ian Bertram make you want to sleep with the lights on after reading this tale of horror and dread that wraps you around the throat and doesn't let go. There's a price for everything, and we are reminded of that in the most entertaining, and disturbing, way."
- Geoff Johns (Justice League)

"House of Penance is Peter Tomasi's finest work to date, a haunting, macabre experience that will stay with any thoughtful reader long after its conclusion. A fine tale well told, and highly recommended."
-Garth Ennis (Preacher)
