From New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub comes the first in a terrifying new series set in a small town with a sinister secret

The razor's gleaming blade slices effortlessly through skin and tendon, and he relishes the final anguished moments of his prey. There's only one thing he prizes more: their long, silken strands of red hair. But these women are merely stand-ins . . . a prelude to his ultimate victim.

Nestled in New York's Hudson Valley, Mundy's Landing is famous for its picturesque setting—and for a century-old string of gruesome unsolved murders. Rowan returned to her hometown years ago, fleeing a momentary mistake that could have destroyed her family. Life is good here. Peaceful. Until an anonymous gift brings Rowan's fears to life again.

The town's violent history was just the beginning. Soon everyone in Mundy's Landing will know that the past cannot be forgotten or forgiven—not until every sin has been paid for, in blood.

USA TodayandNew York Timesbestseller Wendy Corsi Staub is the award-winning author of more than seventy novels and has twice been nominated for the Mary Higgins Clark Award. She lives in the New York City suburbs with her husband and their two children.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First in New Mystery Series A fan of mystery books and thrillers, I jumped at the chance to read and review Blood Red by Wendi Corsi Staub, the first book in her Mundy’s Landing series. Using a small town setting, a series of gruesome murders that took place in the 1600’s and a recent set of killings, Ms. Staub takes us inside the mind of a killer and a woman keeping secrets. While not quite what I was hoping for, this is a book many mystery lovers would enjoy reading. Introducing us to Rowan Mundy, the main character of the story, Ms. Staub quickly provides a quick sketch of “Mundy’s Landing”, the gruesome crimes that are a part of the town’s history, and the person whose plans will once again put this small town in the spotlight. While the mystery of who sent Rowan the “burnt” cookies, how it ties into her past and why she reacts the way she does is well done, I felt as if something was missing. I felt like the story jumped between Rowan’s viewpoint and the viewpoint of “Casey”, another primary character, too much. While there are plenty of secondary characters, only a couple of them are interesting. I especially liked Mick, Rowan’s teenaged son and it was interesting to watch him and Rowan interact – especially since they both shared a medical condition. I also expected a touch of violence and blood but most of that action took place off the page. While I am not into a lot of blood and gore, perhaps a touch of it would have made the “serial killer” aspect of the book more realistic. Will Rowan discover who is behind the threat to her safety before it is too late? Will she be able to keep her family out of danger? You will have to read Blood Red to find out.
