Meet Ramesh Kumar, "examinations consultat," who makes a lucrative living taking tests for the sons of India's elite.

They young men's meteoric rise brings material wealth and romantic intrigue, until they're both kidnapped and held for ransom.

Summary
"It's only by confronting who she was then that she can understand who she is now. I was born in captivity ... Two decades ago Marissa Mo escaped a basement prison--the only home she'd ever known. At twenty-seven, Marissa's moved beyond the trauma and is working under a new name as a freelance photographer. But when she accepts a job covering a string of macabre murders in Portland, it's impossible for Marissa not to remember. Everything is eerily familiar. The same underground lairs. Sad trinkets and toys left behind, identical to those Marissa had as a child. And then there is the note meant just for her that freezes Marissa's blood: See you soon, Missy. To determine the killer's next move, Marissa must retrieve her long-forgotten memories and return to a past she's hidden away. But she won't be facing her fears alone. Someone is waiting for her in the dark."--Publisher.

Summary
1885: Sent to recover goods her father pirated on the Great Lake during the war, Adria Fontaine arrives at Foxglove Manor, a stone house on a cliff overlooking Lake Superior. The mistress of Foxglove is an eccentric and seemingly cruel old woman who has filled her house with dangerous secrets, ones that may cost Adria her life. Present day: Kailey Gibson is a new nurse's aide at a senior home in a renovated old stone manor. Kidnapped as a child, her memories are overshadowed by the chilling promise from her abductors that they would return. When the residents of Foxglove start sharing stories of whispers in the night, hidden treasure, and a love willing to kill, Kailey will risk much to banish the past's demons. -- adapted from back cover
