I Do Not Trust You: A Novel
By Laura J. Burns, Melinda Metz


With Laura J. Burns and Melinda Metz's signature plot twists, and uneasy, ever-changing alliances, I Do Not Trust You is a thrilling journey at every turn that asks—what would you do to save the ones you love?

Memphis "M" Engel is stubborn to a fault, graced with an almost absurd knowledge of long lost languages and cultures, and a heck of an opponent in a fight. In short: she's awesome.

Ashwin “Ash” Sood is a little too posh for M's tastes, a little too good looking, and has way too many secrets. He desperately wants the ancient map M inherited from her archeologist father, believing it will lead him to a relic with the power to destroy the world. M obviously can't trust him.

Equally desperate to find the relic for reasons of her own, M forms an uneasy partnership with Ash. From the catacombs of Paris, to a sacred forest in Norway, to the ruins of a submerged temple in Egypt, together they crisscross the globe in their search. But through it all, M can never be sure: Is she traveling with a friend or enemy?

Sanctuary Bay
By Laura J. Burns, Melinda Metz



"Genuinely enjoyable from start to finish, this novel would lend itself most fully to those who gritty, grotesque exposés of superficially perfect people and places.  A quickly captivating account of an outsider's new life inside a world of prestige, pleasure, and pain and her struggle to find acceptance and herself and to survive."

--School Library Journal

 "This mash-up of private-school lit meets mystery novel meets conspiracy theory should keep readers guessing as the horror continues to mount. Elizabeth LaBan’s The Tragedy Paper (2013) and Jenny Hubbard’s Paper Covers Rock (2011), with their elite-school settings and dark secrets, would both make interesting companion reads."


 "There's no escaping it. This story hooks you from page one and refuses to let go....Deliciously suspenseful, Sanctuary Bay is a twisted thriller brimming with dark secrets."

-- Barbara Stewart, author of The In-Between and What We Knew
