The Suicide House
July 6, 2020
I've been overwhelmed with the response from readers who have signed up to receive the latest news and information about THE SUICIDE HOUSE. We have released three teaser excerpts from THE SUICIDE HOUSE, straight from the Killer's journal.
The final three teasers will be available only to INSIDERS. They offer insight into the identity of the killer, and astute readers may be able to pick up clues to help them solve the mystery when they start reading the book. AND IN ADDITION, during the first week of August, I will be selecting THREE lucky INSIDERS to receive a signed paperback copy of any of my backlist titles—SUMMIT LAKE, THE GIRL WHO WAS TAKEN, DON'T BELIEVE IT, or SOME CHOOSE DARKNESS. The winners will get to choose the title and will have the option of having me sign the book to them or, if gifting the book to a friend or loved one, will have the option to have me dedicate the book to that special someone--complete with any inscription you choose. Not sure what to inscribe? No worries, just give me their name and I'll come up with something clever. Thanks for being an INSIDER! Please consider pre-ordering THE SUICIDE HOUSE from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BAM, Target, Walmart, a local retailer, or your local indie bookstore. Stay tuned for exclusive journal entries...the Killer has a lot to get off their chest. Happy Reading,

Publisher's Weekly Review
Donlea’s gripping sequel to 2019’s Some Choose Darkness finds Chicago forensic reconstructionist Rory Moore, who specializes in cold case homicides, investigating a string of bizarre deaths at a prestigious Indiana prep school.
A year after two students are murdered in an abandoned boarding house near Westmont Preparatory High School and an implicated teacher commits suicide, those who witnessed the brutal aftermath of the carnage begin taking their own lives. A popular true-crime podcast focusing on the unexplained deaths shines a new light on the school, and Rory becomes obsessed with solving the mystery.
With her love interest, former FBI criminal profiler Lane Phillips, sidelined after being injured in a blast that killed the podcast’s host, Rory is largely on her own. Multiple intertwining storylines keep the pacing brisk and the tension high throughout. But the book’s real strength is the idiosyncratic Rory, who suffers from OCD and is on the autism spectrum, a deeply developed character, readers can’t help rooting for. Hopefully, she’ll be back soon. View PW List
