Head On by John Scalzi

Hilketa is a frenetic and violent pastime where players attack each other with swords and hammers. The main goal of the game: obtain your opponent's head and carry it through the goalposts. With flesh and bone bodies, a sport like this would be impossible.

But all the players are threeps, robot-like bodies controlled by people locked in with Haden's Syndrome; so anything goes. No one gets hurt (permanently), but the brutality is real and the crowds love it.

Until a star athlete drops dead on the playing field.

Paranoid by Lisa Jackson
[book cover]

There are people in Edgewater, Oregon, who think that twenty years ago, Rachel Gaston got away with murder.

Rachel still has no idea how a foolish teenaged game turned deadly, or who replaced her soft pellet air gun with a real weapon. When a figure leapt out at her from the darkness, she fired without thinking. Too late, she recognized her half-brother, Luke, and saw blood blooming around his chest.

Despite counseling, Rachel's horrifying dreams about that night continue. Her anxiety contributed to her divorce from Detective Cade Ryder, though he blames himself too. But as Rachel's high school reunion nears, she feels her imagination playing tricks, convincing her that objects in her house have moved; that there's a hint of unfamiliar cologne in the air; that someone is tailing her car, watching her home.

She's right to be scared. And as connections surface between a new string of murders and Luke's death, Rachel realizes there's no escaping the past, and the truth may be darker than her worst fears.
