The Hunger Games Companion The Unauthorized Guide to the Series L o i s H . G re sh

The first companion guide to the blockbuster Hunger Games trilogy—soon to be a major motion picture

For all those who adore Katniss and Peeta, and can’t get enough, this companion guide to the wildly popular Hunger Games series is a must-read and a terrific gift—especially with the film version hitting theaters in March 2012. Written by the New York Times bestselling author of The Twilight Companion, the book takes fans deeper into the post-apocalyptic world created by Suzanne Collins—an alternative future where boys and girls are chosen from twelve districts to compete in “The Hunger Games,” a televised fight-to-the-death. When sixteen-year-old Katniss learns that her little sister has been chosen, Kat steps up to fight in her place—and the games begin. This unathorized guide takes the reader behind the stage. The Hunger Games Companion includes fascinating background facts about the action in all three books, a revealing biography of the author, and amazing insights into the series’ major themes and features—from the nature of evil, to weaponry and rebellions, to surviving the end of the world. It’s everything fans have been hungering for since the very first book! This book is not authorized by Suzanne Collins, Scholastic Press or anyone involved in the Hunger Games movie.

Personal trainer Cameron Paradise flees Hawaii and her abusive champion-surfer husband, Gregg, and makes her way to L.A. With her to-die-for looks, it doesn’t take Cameron long to find a job at an exclusive private fitness club. Every man she meets comes on to her, but Cameron is more focused on opening her own studio one day than getting caught up in the L.A. scene of wild parties and recreational drugs. Then Cameron meets Ryan Richards, a successful movie producer who happens to be married to Mandy, the princess daughter of a Hollywood mogul. Ryan has never cheated on Mandy, but after he meets Cameron, all bets are off—even if she’s seeing his best friend, a devastatingly attractive talkshow host and legendary player. What happens when love and lust collide with fame and ambition? Married Lovers. "The fabulous Married Lovers has plenty of Hollywood women kicking ass with a trio of new heroes.” —The New York Post

Boardwalk Gangster The Real Lucky Luciano T im Ne w ark

“A fascinating case of how criminals are made, broken—and made again.” —The Huffi ngton Post Lucky Luciano has become well-known to fans of HBO’s series Boardwalk Empire. Now, Tim Newark tells the real story that has never been told before—in which the American Mafia becomes entangled with foreign war and Cold War conspiracy. For the first 25 years of his career, Lucky Luciano was a vicious mobster who became the king of the New York underworld. For the next 25, he was a fake, his reputation maintained by  government agents.  Boardwalk Gangster  follows  him from his early days as a hitman to his sex and narcotics empires, exposing what he really did to help the Allies and that he even worked as a Cold War agent. “A must for true crime fans.”

The first in the acclaimed Russ Van Alstyne and Clare Fergusson series, In the Bleak Midwinter went on to win the Macavity, Barry, Agatha and Anthony awards. Now in a stunning new edition, readers old and new can experience the beginning of this critically-heralded mystery collection. It's a cold, snowy December in the upstate New York town of Millers Kill, and newly-ordained Clare Fergusson is on thin ice as the first female priest of its small Episcopal church. Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne dismisses her as a naive do-gooder and her blunt manner, honed by eight years as an Army chaplain, receives a a chilly reception. When a baby is abandoned and a young mother is brutally murdered, Clare has to pick her way through the secrets and silence that shadow the town like the ever-present Adirondack mountains. As the days dwindle down and the attraction between the avowed priest and the married chief grows, Clare will need all her faith, tenacity and courage to stand fast against a killer's icy heart. “Superb!“

Everybody L oves Whales Tom R o se

Now a major motion picture starring Drew Barrymore, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Tim Blake Nelson, John Krasinski, and Vinessa Shaw—an account of the dramatic rescue of three gray whales trapped under the ice in Alaska in 1988 A Trade Paperback Original

Set in Cold-War-era 1988, Everybody Loves Whales is the real story behind the remarkable, bizarre and often times uproarious event that mesmerized the world for weeks. On October 7, an Inuit hunter found three California Gray whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature’s way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Rose compellingly describes how oil company executives, Greenpeace activists, Eskimos, businessmen, and military officers heroically worked together to save the whales. The book also  features some of the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world’s attention. The rescue was followed by millions of people around the world and brought together President Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, the General Secretary of the Soviet Union, to join forces.

TOM ROSE covered the 1988 whale rescue as a reporter and producer for Japanese TV. He spent the next several months in Alaska interviewing every major player involved in both the rescue and the media coverage of it. Today, Rose, the former Publisher and CEO of the Jerusalem Post, is a conservative talk show host on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. He writes regularly on the Middle East and lives in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Second Grave on the L eft Darynd a Jone s Second in the award-winning paranormal series that’s “hilarious and —J.R.Ward heartfelt, sexy and surprising.” When Charley and Cookie (her best friend/receptionist) have to track down a missing woman, the case is not quite as open and shut as they anticipate. A friend of Cookie’s named Mimi disappeared five days earlier. This friend then sends Cookie a cryptic message telling them to meet her at a nearby coffee shop. The coffee is brewing, but Mimi’s still missing. There is, however, a clue left on the bathroom wall: a woman’s name, scribbled by Mimi. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message. Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Can she keep those she loves out of harm’s way? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel her as she does? Here is your signpost for the most hilarious read of the summer: Second Grave On The Left. “Fast-talking Charley’s wicked exuberance and lust for life will appeal to fans of —Pub lishers W eekly MaryJanice Davidson and Janet Evanovich.”

EAT The Effortless Weight Loss Solution Ian K. Sm ith , M.D . The #1 bestselling author of The Fat Smash Diet and The 4 Day Diet creates an exciting eating plan for the reluctant or done-every-dietout-there dieter EAT is a diet book in the flexible spirit of Mireille Guiliano’s French Women Don’t Get Fat or Michael Pollan’s The Food Rules: it doesn’t dictate quantities, portion sizes or verboten foods. Instead, it intelligently and persuasively lays out the ten simple rules anyone can internalize and follow in any situation for stress-free weight loss and lifetime maintenance. Dr. Ian’s rules are straightforward and simple: once a reader understands why whole wheat bread is almost nutrition-free, but whole grain bread is a magic food; why soda—both regular and diet—can sabotage any diet; why “diet” food may be having a distinctly nondietetic effect, EAT will become their bible. Fans everywhere will ask each other: “You look thinner—are you doing EAT?”   Dr. Ian’s Ten Simple Rules for Good Eating: • Choose Color • Go Organic Only Selectively

• Sharpen Your X-Ray Eye for Hidden Calories

• What’s the Natural State?

• Whole Grains All the Time

• Size Matters

• Drink Smart (Don’t Let Liquids Wash Out Your Good Eating)

• Gorge at the Protein Bonanza • Tap the Power of Awesome Carbs

The Brighton to London line. 7:44 am. Cars packed with commuters. One woman occupies her time observing the people around her. Opposite, a girl puts on her make-up. Across the aisle, a husband strokes his wife’s hand. Further along, another woman flicks through a magazine. Then, abruptly, everything changes: a man collapses, the train is stopped, and an ambulance is called. For at least three passengers on the 7:44 on that particular morning, life will never be the same again. Capturing their experience in the weeks that follow, One Moment, One Morning is a novel about love, loss, family and—above all—friendship. It is a stark reminder that it only takes one moment to shatter everything. Yet life can and does go on. “Oh, what a novel ! It will make you laugh and cry, it will make you want to call your dear ones to tell them how much you love them, it will make you buy it for all your friends.” —Ta tiana de Rosnay , author of A Sec re t Ke pt and Sarah’s Key

Called “exceptionally poignant” by Nature magazine, Fen Montaigne’s timely account of five months in Antarctica gives a taste of the global changes that will soon arrive in our own backyards. Scientist Bill Fraser has devoted three decades to Antarctica, witnessing global warming’s effects on the classic tuxedoed penguins dependent on sea ice to survive. Author Fen Montaigne spent five months working on Fraser’s field team, and he returned with a moving tale that chronicles the beauty of the wildest place on earth.  It’s Montaigne’s “descriptive prowess, his ability to evoke lavender—and cobalt, magenta and violet— without waxing purple, that most impresses” (New York Times Book Review) as he chronicles the penguins’ plight, which is also our own.

Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy…he’s in college, has a girlfriend…and it just so happens that he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies–nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors–it’s just harmless fun. That is…until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back. Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.  Soon, he discovers that his father works for a shadowy division of the CIA and knows more about Jackson’s time-traveling abilities than should be possible.  Jackson also befriends the 2007 Holly, protects her, and falls in love with her all over again. But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler.  Recruit…or kill him.

Outrageous F ortunes The Twelve Surprising Trends That Will Reshape the Global Economy Dan iel A ltman

“Informative and accessible, penetrating and provocative. . . . A first-rate guide to global —N PR.org trends.” As individuals, companies, and countries struggle to recover from the economic crisis, many are narrowly focused on forecasts for the next week, month, or quarter. Yet they should be asking what the global economy will look like in the years to come—where will the long-term risks and opportunities arise? These are the questions that Daniel Altman confronts in his provocative and indispensable book.  The fate of the global economy, Altman argues, will be determined by deeper factors than those that move markets from moment to moment. His incisive analysis brings together hidden trends, societal pressures, and policy endgames to make twelve surprising but logical predictions about the years ahead and to pose the question of whether our political and economic institutions are up to the task.  Outrageous Fortunes tells which industries will grow, which economies will crumble, which investments will pay off, and where the next big crisis may occur. Altman’s carefully reasoned text is an essential guide for the road ahead, and in a new preface written for this edition, he shows how these trends are revealing themselves in today’s global economy.

An elderly passenger looked at him and said, “We’re all trying to go that way,” pointing to the rear. “You, you’re going this way?” Giridharadas was returning to the land of his ancestors, amid an unlikely economic boom. But he was more interested in its cultural upheaval, as a new generation has sought to reconcile old traditions and customs with new ambitions and dreams.  In India Calling, he brings to life the people and the dilemmas of India today, through the prism of his émigré family history and his childhood memories of India. He introduces us to entrepreneurs, radicals, industrialists, and religious seekers, but, most of all, to Indian families. Through their stories, and his own, he paints an intimate portrait of a country becoming modern while striving to remain itself. “India Calling is a fine book, elegant, self-aware and unafraid of contradictions and complexity.

Lambdin’s latest high-seas adventure takes Captain Lewrie from the shores of Haiti to the English Channel to defend Britain from Napoleon’s planned invasion. After reluctantly saving the last French citizens on the rebellious colony of Haiti, he finds himself invited to receive honors in London.  Thanks to  King George III and his uncertain mental state, the moment ends with a surprise for Lewrie—if not for the King himself. With characteristic humor and an unerring eye for historical detail, Dewey Lambdin has created another enjoyable addition to this long-running series. ”Readers who haven’t yet sampled Lewrie’s adventures need only know that comparisons to Forester and O’Brian are —Booklis t entirely appropriate.” “You could get addicted to this series. Easily.” —The New York Tim es

But Carter soon discovers Akilah isn’t what she seems, and neither is the fire. When Akilah’s boyfriend, a Newark councilman, is reported missing, Carter must plunge into the murky world of urban house flipping and political corruption, aided by his usual mix of humor and street smarts.

Love Affair A Memoir of a forbidden Father-Daughter Union L e s l i e Kenton

A searing literary memoir of a disconnected childhood, an unusual upbringing, and incest—and escaping the legacy of all three— from the daughter of legendary jazz pianist Stan Kenton Leslie Kenton was the daughter of Violet, a stunning Hitchcock blonde, and legendary bandleader Stan Kenton. Her story begins on the road in 1950s America and in the mania of Hollywood—a world of jazz clubs, dance halls and one nighters, where lives were lived on a razor’s edge. Love Affair takes us beyond the bright lights and glamour into an intense, claustrophobic world of a father and the only child of his troubled marriage. As Stanley grapples with alcohol and his personal demons, his actions threaten to destroy the only real, untainted thing in his life: Leslie. A true story of obsession, tragedy and grace, Love Affair is a powerful memoir. At its heart is the complex, ultimately incestuous, relationship with her father–a union so powerful it defines all that came after. As their lives become increasingly entangled, so do the darkness and light within them, leading to destruction for him and heartbreaking redemption for her. There have been memoirs about incest before, but Love Affair is a surprisingly moving treatment of a young life, shared passion, and boundaries crossed.

The Witch’s D aughter Pau la Brac ks ton In this enthralling tale of modern witch Bess Hawksmith—perfect for fans of A Discovery of Witches and The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane—a fiercely independent woman desperate to escape her cursed history must confront the evil which has haunted her for centuries My name is Elizabeth Anne Hawksmith, and my age is three hundred and eighty-four years. Each new settlement asks for a new journal, and so this Book of Shadows begins… In the spring of 1628, the Witchfinder of Wessex finds himself a true Witch. As Bess Hawksmith watches her mother swing from the Hanging Tree she knows that only one man can save her from the same fate: the Warlock Gideon Masters. Secluded at his cottage, Gideon instructs Bess in the Craft, awakening formidable powers she didn’t know she had. She couldn’t have foreseen that even now, centuries later, he would be hunting her across time, determined to claim payment for saving her life. In present-day England, Elizabeth has built a quiet life. She has spent the centuries in solitude, moving from place to place, surviving plagues, wars, and the heartbreak that comes with immortality, all the while never ceasing to look behind her shoulder for Gideon. Her eternal loneliness comes to an abrupt end when a teenage girl called Tegan starts hanging around. Against her better judgment, Elizabeth opens her heart to Tegan and begins teaching her the ways of the Hedge Witch. But will she be able to stand against Gideon—who will stop at nothing to reclaim her soul—in order to protect the girl who has become the daughter she never had? “It’s almost impossible not to root for the underdog in this magical twist on the classic —Marie Claire David vs. Goliath tale.” “An engaging, well-written novel.”

L enobia ’s V ow A House of Night Novella P . C . Cas t an d K rist in Cast Second in the enthralling new mini-series of novellas from the #1 bestselling mother-daughter duo, Lenobia’s Vow tells the gripping story behind the House of Night’s enigmatic riding instructor—and one of Zoey’s closest allies against evil... The House of Night is an international publishing sensation; with more than 12 million books in print, and an incredible 120 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, the series has taken the world by storm. Now, the excitement continues as the Casts share the back stories of a few of the House of Night’s most important—and mysterious—characters. The second of the House of Night Novellas brings us Lenobia, the strong Professor of Equestrian Studies who guides Zoey through some of her darkest hours, and has a dark secret buried in her own past... In a small southern town at the turn of the century, young Lenobia is developing into a beautiful young woman with ideas of her own. But when she is Marked as a fledgling vampyre, her world turns upside down, and she is drawn to the musical streets of New Orleans. There, she learns of the city’s dark underbelly, ruled by powerful black magic. As Lenobia experiences her first love—and loss—and discovers a passion for horses, she must come face-to-face with Darkness itself. And she may not escape without scars. “Twilight meets Harry Potter…Zoey Redbird…is basically the most relatable vampire — sorry, fledgling vampyre—I’ve ever read about.”

A Little N ight Magic L u cy Mar ch Deliciously witty and delightfully sexy, A Little Night Magic  is the story of Olivia Kiskey, a small town waffle house waitress who discovers she has magical powers which put her on the frontlines of a mystical war, forcing her to navigate her way between good and evil, day magic and night magic, love and waffles But the waffles are really, really, really good Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, NY, waffle house since she was a teenager. She’s been in love with Tobias the cook for the last four years; he’s never made a move. Every Saturday night, she gathers with her three best friends—Peach, Millie, and Stacy—and drinks the same margaritas while listening to the same old stories. Intent on changing her life, she puts her house on the market, buys a oneway ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends...but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical southern woman who shows Olivia that there is more to her small town life than she ever dreamed. As her latent magical powers come to the surface, Olivia discovers that having an interesting life is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. The dark side of someone else’s magic is taking over good people in town, and changing them into vessels of malevolence...including Millie, who has been a shining example of sweetness for Liv since they were kids. Unwilling to cede her home to darkness, she battles the demons of her familial past and her magical present, and learns that the important things in life—friendship, love, magic and waffles—can get a girl through almost anything the Universe can throw at her. “Fresh and funny, warm and sexy. I can’t wait for more books from Lucy March.” —Su s an Elizab eth Phillips, au thor of C ALL ME IRR e SIST ABLE

The J ourney of Being H uman Is It Possible to Find Real Happiness in Ordinary Life? O s ho In the fifth book in Osho’s Life Essentials series, the inspiring spiritual teacher addresses the search for happiness.... Man is a bridge, says Osho, between the animal and the divine–and our awareness of this dual aspect of our nature is what makes us human. It is also what makes us restless, full of conflict, so often at the crossroads of selfishness and generosity, of love and hate, frailty and strength, hope and despair. The Journey of Being Human looks into how we might embrace and accept these apparent contradictions, rather than try to choose between them, as the key to transforming each twist and turn of life’s journey into a new discovery of who we are meant to be.

In Belief, Doubt, and Fanaticism, Osho brings his unique and often surprising perspective to the religious, political, social and economic forces that drive people into opposing camps, fanatical groups, and belief systems that depend on seeing every “other” as the “enemy.” As always, the focus is first and foremost on the individual psyche and consciousness, to identify the root causes and hidden demons of our human need to belong and have something to “believe in.”

The Attenbury Emeralds The New Lord Peter Wimsey/ Harriet Vane Mystery J ill Paton Wal sh Based on the characters of Dorothy L. Sayers

After World War II, Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane revisit his very first case in this “wholly original interpretation of Sayers’s golden age characters...” (Pu b lishers Weekly, starred review ) In 1936, Dorothy L. Sayers abandoned the last Lord Peter Wimsey detective story. Sixty years later, Jill Paton Walsh completed it in the acclaimed bestseller Thrones, Dominations, and now Walsh brings the characters forward to a London forever changed by war. It was 1921 when Lord Peter first encountered the Attenbury Emeralds—launching a shell-shocked young aristocrat on his detective career. Lord Peter has just  shared  the secrets of that case with his wife, Harriet, when Lord Attenbury’s grandson arrives to ask for his help in proving the ownership of the emeralds. Past and present combine in this masterful addition to one of the most brilliant detective series of all time.

A Box of D arkness The Story of a Marriage Sally Ry d er Bra dy In the tradition of Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking, Sally Brady’s New York Times bestselling memoir is a poignant story about a marriage that was as deep and strong as it was mysterious and complex Upton and Sally Brady were a rare breed: cultivated and elegant, they lived a life of literary glamour and high expectations. Sally a debutante; Upton a classics major from Harvard, they met at the Boston Cotillion. He was articulate, witty, and worldly, and he danced like Fred Astaire. How could she resist? Despite raising four children on Upton’s modest wage as the editor-in-chief of the Atlantic Monthly Press, theirs was a world of champagne, sailboats, private islands, famous writers, family rituals, and ice-cold martinis. They lived life on their terms. But as time wore on, Upton, the charming and brilliant husband, the inventive, beguiling partner, grew opinionated, cranky, controlling, and dangerous. When Upton died suddenly one evening in their Vermont cottage, Sally began uncovering secrets. As she went through his papers, she discovered that her husband of forty-six years had desired the love of other men. Her riveting, charismatic husband was not quite the man he appeared to be, and a year of mourning became for Sally a time to unravel the dark and unexpected web he had left behind. Hers is a moving and powerful story of coming to terms with what cannot be changed. It is also a story of great love. “Well-written and moving.” “A tremendously affecting account.” —S e basti an J ung er, i nter national “Compelling.”

When people are seriously ill or injured, they receive immediate and often life-sustaining treatment. Then at some point they are usually left to their own devices to “finish” healing. At the time that patients are discharged from treatment or their doctors tell them, “I don’t have anything else I can offer you,” they are often shifted into a zone where they are better than at their sickest point, but not as healthy as they once were. This zone, between illness and good health, is where rehabilitation specialists focus. Dr. Silver calls this area of medicine, where physiatrists work, The Healing Zone. This is the place where doctors are most concerned with physical and emotional healing after an injury or illness. Our bodies are amazing in their capacity to heal, however, people can be taught how to heal faster, better, and stronger, both physically and emotionally. You Can Heal Yourself offers the strategies needed to achieve optimal healing. Praise for After Cancer Treatment by Julie Silver, MD: “A hands-on guide to survival...Highly recommended.”

Anthem for Doomed Youth A Daisy Dalrymple Mystery Carola D unn

In 1926, three bodies are found in the forest outside London—and Daisy Dalrymple is enmeshed in another case of murder most foul

In Spring of 1926, the corpses of three men are found in shallow graves in Epping Forest outside of London.  Each one was shot through the heart. Called in to investigate, DCI Alec Fletcher of Scotland Yard is under urgent orders to accomplish two things—solve the  murders quickly and keep his wife, the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher, far, far away from the case!  Luckily for Alec, Daisy is off visiting their daughter at school. But when one of the school’s teachers is found dead, the body in the center of a maze, Daisy is once again in the thick of it. As Daisy tries to solve one murder, Alec uncovers the link between the three victims in London. All three were in the same Army company during World War I and their murders are likely related to specific events that unfolded during that tragic conflict.    And  if the last piece of the puzzle isn’t put together soon, and the killer revealed, those three bodies might only be the beginning. “Enjoyable...will please fans of traditional English whodun—Pu blishers Weekly on Ant hem of Doo med You th its” “Delicious...pleasantly reminscent of the old fashioned mysteries of a bygone era.” —The Den ver Pos t on Gunp owder Plot CAROLA DUNN is the author of numerous novels, including the Daisy Dalrymple series.

No team in all of sports is as uniquely hated as those smug, entitled, floor-slapping, fist-pumping, insufferable Blue Devils. When Duke won the national championship in 2010, cheers may have erupted on the campus, but for a large portion of the American public, it was like watching a pet die. Every team has its detractors. But with Duke, it’s different. To its haters, Duke is like something scraped off shoes. The team is dogged by an intense loathing that no other team can match. But even those legions of basketball fans who detest Duke may have a hard time articulating exactly why they’re so put off by the team--until now.  In this book,  Tucker and Bagwell  show readers exactly why Duke deserves to be so hated. They bruise and batter the Blue Devils with fact after fact, story after story, statistic after statistic.  They build an airtight case that could stand up in a court of law. Millions of basketball fans around the world are not imagining things. Duke really is evil, and Duke Sucks proves it. “It’s daylight savings time, which means it’s also Duke-hating —De n ver Post time.”

The New R eagan Revolution How Ronald Reagan’s Principles Can Restore America’s Greatness M i chael R eagan wi th Ji m Denney ; F ore w or d by Ne w t Gi ngric h

For fans of Michelle Malkin and Mark Levin— Ronald Reagan’s eldest son proposes a bold plan for restoring America—including a foreword by Newt Gingrich The New Reagan Revolution reveals new insights into the life, thoughts, and actions of the man who changed the world during the 1980s. The challenges and threats we face today are eerily similar to the conditions in the world before the beginning of the Reagan era. This book is not merely a diagnosis of our nation’s ills, but a prescription rooted in Reagan’s words and principles. It’s a plan he announced to the nation, straight from his heart, one summer evening during the 1976 Republican National Convention. It’s the plan he put into action during his eight years in office as the most effective president of the 20th century, and it is the plan we can use today to help return America to its former greatness, soundness, and prosperity. “Michael Reagan has given us the blueprint for a new Reagan revolution. Read it, learn it, live it, love it!”  — Rus h Limbaug h, the  #1 radio t al k show host in Ameri ca ”A practical agenda for refreshing the tree of liberty and returning America to her constitutional roots.

And Furthermore J u d i Den c h

“Ms. Dench’s sense of humor is on full display...readers will walk away with a keen sense of her philosophy on life: take your art seri—The New York Tim es ously, but never yourself.”- From the Old Vic to Broadway, from her Academy Awardwinning role in Shakespeare in Love to the role of “M” in the James Bond films and the BBC’s As Time Goes By, Judi Dench has bonded with fans of all ages. She made her professional acting debut, in 1957, with the Old Vic theatre company playing Ophelia in Hamlet. In 1968, she became a sensation as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, adding musical comedy to her repertoire. Over the years, Dench has given indelible performances in Noël Coward’s Hay Fever, Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music and, David Hare’s Amy’s View (for which she won a Tony). For the first time, in And Furthermore, Dench writes about her life on and off the stage, bringing it all alive with her impish sense of humor.  For the paperback edition, Dench has added a foreword in response to questions she regularly receives from aspiring young actors called “Ten Things Every Young Actor Should Know,” making this a book that fans—as well as future Denches, Oliviers and Redgraves—will cherish. “In this warmhearted memoir, actress Dench brings such a fresh and natural reaction as she describes her roles...With candor and wit, Dench interweaves her stage presences with her love of playing pranks on fellow actors, on the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and on Broadway.” —Pub lishers W eekly

DAME JUDI DENCH is one of the foremost stage, screen, and television actors of our time. She was created a DBE in 1988 and a Companion of Honour in 2005.

Save Me L i s a S cottol ine From the New York Times bestselling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes her most emotionally powerful novel yet, about mothers and daughters and the choices we have to make Lisa Scottoline has thrilled millions with her inspiring female characters and her exploration of emotional justice, writing about real issues that resonate with real women. In Save Me, she returns with her most stirring and thought-provoking novel yet. Nobody could have foreseen what would happen the day that Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in the cafeteria of her daughter’s elementary school. Rose does it to keep a discreet eye on her third-grader, Melly, a sweet, if shy, child who was born with a facial birthmark that has become her own personal bull’s-eye. Melly has been targeted by the mean girl at their new school and gets bullied every day, placing Rose in a no-win position familiar to parents everywhere: Do we step in to protect our children when they need us, or does that make things worse?  When the bully starts to tease Melly yet again, Rose is about to leap into action—but right then, the unthinkable happens. Rose finds herself in a nightmare, faced with an emergency decision that no mother should ever have to make. What she decides in that split second derails Rose’s life and jeopardizes everyone she holds dear, until she takes matters into her own hands and lays her life on the line to save her child, her family, her marriage—and herself.  

Praise for Save Me: “Are you a good mother if you save your child from disaster? What if it means sacrificing another’s child? In Save Me, Lisa Scottoline walks readers into this charged moral dilemma and then takes them on an intense, breathless ride where accidents might not be accidents at all. You won’t be able to put this one down.”

Back by popular demand are the Rodgers women from One Day I Saw A Black King, Don’t Want No Sugar and You Gotta Sin To Get Saved—and the family drama is more powerful than ever. Six months ago her three daughters walked out and left Charlotte Rodgers to fend for herself. Charlotte is resentful and bitter towards her children, Clarice, Connie, and especially Camille, for leaving her to face the memories of her painful past. What Charlotte doesn’t know is that the past will soon catch up with her once again. Justin and Clarice Braxton are struggling to hold on to their marriage. Justin’s affair has taken its toll, and Clarice (Reesy) has to decide once and for all, if she can finally forgive him, and move forward, or if the lure of giving Justin a dose of his own medicine is too tempting to ignore.   Camille Rodgers has lived her whole life under Charlotte’s critical eye, struggling to be the perfect daughter and giving in to Charlotte’s whims. When she steps out on her own for the first time, Camille quickly spirals out of control.  Connie Rodgers has fallen in love with her new son and things are going strong with her son’s father, John King. Then John finds out that his father is on his death bed. Unwelcome blasts from the past resurface, putting their new family to the test. Praise for J.D.

The Year I Fell in Love and Went to Join the Sandinistas Deb O li n Unferth

Hailed as a “virtuosic one-woman show” (Time Out New York) this New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice pick tells the funny and poignant story of the year the author ran away from college with her idealistic boyfriend and followed him to Nicaragua to join the Sandinistas. Despite their earnest commitment to a myriad of revolutionary causes and to each other, Deb and her boyfriend find themselves unwanted, unhelpful, and unprepared as they bop around Central America, looking for “revolution jobs.” The year is 1987, a turning point in the Cold War, although the world doesn’t know it yet, especially not Unferth and her fiancé (he proposes on a roadside in El Salvador). The months wear on and cracks begin to form in their relationship: they get fired, they get sick, they run out of money, they grow disillusioned with the revolution and each other. But years later the trip remains fixed in her mind and she finally goes back to Nicaragua to try to make sense of it all. Unferth’s heartbreaking and hilarious memoir perfectly captures the youthful search for meaning, and is an absorbing rumination on what happens to a country and its people after the revolution is over. “Brave, soulful...Unferth has a distinct, droll voice. Reading her is like listening to a girlfriend burning with gin-fueled —The New York Times Book Review enlightenment.” “This is a very funny, excoriatingly honest story of being young, semi-idealistic, stupid and in love. If you have ever been any of these things, you’ll devour it.” —Da ve Egg ers Deb Olin Unferth is the author of the story collection Minor Robberies and the novel Vacation, winner of the 2009 Cabell First Novelist Award and a New York Times Book Review Critics’ Choice.

Alphabet City in 1988 burned with heroin, radicalism, and antipolice sentiment. Working as a plainclothes narcotics cop, Mike Codella earned the nickname “Rambo” and a bounty on his head.  Codella knew that the further east you got from 5th Avenue, the deeper you entered the sea of human misery, violence and all the things that come with an illegal retail drug trade run wild.  With his partner, Gio, Codella made it his personal mission to put away Davie Blue Eyes—the head of Alphabet City’s heroin supply chain. With the blistering narrative spirit of The French Connection, the insights of a seasoned insider, and a relentless voice that reads like the city’s own, Alphaville is at once the story of a dedicated New York cop, and of New York City itself. “Codella describes  [Alphabet City]  so vividly, with such hardboiled language that you feel like you’re in the squad —New York Pos t  car with him.”

1 5 Minutes General Curtis LeMay and the Countdown to Nuclear Annihilation L . Dou gla s K eeney

Packed with startling revelations, this inside look at the secret side of the Cold War exposes just how close America came to total annihilation During the Cold War, a flight crew had 15 minutes to get their nuke-laden plane in the air from the moment Soviet bombers were detected. This is the  chilling true story of the incredibly risky steps our military took to protect us from that scenario, including: • Over two thousand loaded bombers that crossed American skies. They sometimes crashed and at least nine times resulted in nuclear weapons being accidentally dropped • A system that would use timers and rockets to launch missiles even after everyone was dead • Disastrous atmospheric nuclear testing including the horrific runaway bomb—that fooled scientists and put thousands of men in uniform in the center of a cloud of hot fallout • A plan to use dry lake beds to rebuild and launch a fighting force in the aftermath of nuclear war Based on formerly classified documents, military records, press accounts, interviews and over 10 years of research, this is one of the most important works on the atom bomb ever written. “A chilling and unsettling account of accidents, oversights, errors in planning, and other mistakes and misjudgments by the military and its civilian masters...sobering and recom—L ibrary Jour n al mended.” “Offers a very different picture of what was going on in those early days of the Cold War....Such dedication to dangerous work...deserves to be recognized and honored.

New Jersey is infamous for its corrupt political culture, and The Jersey Sting reveals its biggest, juiciest, funniest, and most brazen single case. Among the 44 people arrested in July, 2009 were three mayors, five Orthodox rabbis, two state legislators, and a former-stripper-turned-politician. At the center of it all was a dubious character named Solomon Dwek, who perpetrated a $50 million Ponzi scheme before copping a plea and wearing a wire as an FBI informant. The prosecution led by Chris Christie helped kick off his successful campaign for governor. Full of impossible-to-make-up detail and fresh revelations from the continuing trials and investigations, this  book—the inside, untold account of a federal sting operation that moves from the streets of Brooklyn to the diners of Jersey City, and all the way to Israel—is a wonderful tour de force of investigative journalism by the reporting team that broke this amazing story.  “Two very good reporters at The Star-Ledger have done this state—and the whole country, for that matter—a great ser—The Newark Star- Ledger vice...Juicy...a masterful job.”

The Battle of Britain was a crucial turning point in the history of WWII. If Britain’s defenses collapsed, Hitler would have dominated all of Europe. The German invasion of France and the Low Countries in May 1940 was unlike any the world had ever seen, hitting with unstoppable force. In just a few short weeks, all had crumbled under the force of the Nazi hammer blow. With France facing defeat and British forces pressed back to the Channel, there were few who believed Britain could survive. Soon, it seemed, Hitler would have Europe at his feet. But thanks to a sophisticated defensive system and the combined efforts of the Royal Air Force, the Royal Navy and the mounting collective defiance led by a new Prime Minister, Britain was not ready to roll over just yet. From clashes between coastal convoys and Schnellboote in the Channel to astonishing last stands in Flanders, and from the slaughter by the U-boats in the icy Atlantic to the dramatic aerial battles over England, The Battle of Britain tells this epic story from all sides. Drawing on extensive new research from around the world, it paints a complete picture of an extraordinary summer when the fate of the world hung by a thread. “Thoroughly researched yet written in a relaxed, enjoyable —History Book R eview style.”

JAMES HOLLAND is a British historian and journalist. He is the author of Italy’s Sorrow and multiple other histories. He lives in England.

Following a tragic accident, Fletcher Carson joins the flagging war effort in Vietnam.  Lost and lonely, he plans to die in the war.  But after stumbling upon a critically injured yellow Lab, Fletcher unexpectedly finds a reason to live. He finds Jack. Like the hundreds of other U.S. military dogs and their handlers in Vietnam, Fletcher and Jack serve their country, saving countless lives. To the men, the dogs are heroes. But at the end of the war, the U.S. government announces that all dogs serving in the war have been declared “surplus military equipment” and will not be transported home. Ordered to leave Jack behind, Fletcher refuses—and so begins the journey of two friends who will go to the ends of the earth to save each other. Based on actual canine units in Vietnam, Finding Jack is more than just a story of man saves dog.  It is a story of friendship  and love, and a moving tribute to the forgotten heroes of a desperate war. And proof that sometimes it is dog that truly saves man.     “Captivating.”

When four old University friends set off into the Scandinavian wilderness of the Arctic Circle, they aim to briefly escape the problems of their lives and reconnect with one another. But when Luke, the only man still single and living a precarious existence, finds he has little left in common with his well-heeled friends, tensions rise. With limited experience between them, a shortcut meant to ease their hike turns into a nightmare scenario that could cost them their lives. Lost, hungry, and surrounded by forest untouched for millennia, Luke figures things couldn’t possibly get any worse. But then they stumble across an old habitation. Ancient artefacts decorate the walls and there are bones scattered upon the dry floors. The residue of old rites and pagan sacrifice for something that still exists in the forest. Something responsible for the bestial presence that follows their every step. As the four friends stagger in the direction of salvation, they learn that death doesn’t come easy among these ancient trees . . . “A mind-twisting journey into the dark backwoods of terror.  Deeply disturbing and absolutely riveting.”  —Jona than Mab erry “A book which preys on our most basic, instinctive fears, then amplifies them ten-fold.

The murder of Judge Hugo Jackson is out of Detective Simon Ziele’s jurisdiction in more ways than one. For one its high profile  commands the attention of the police commissioner. The judge was presiding over the trial of Al Drayson, an anarchist, who set off a bomb at a Carnegie wedding, but instead of killing millionaires, it killed passersby, including a child. The trial has captured the attention of 1906 New York City. Furthermore, Simon’s precinct doesn’t include Gramercy Park, which is where the judge is found in his townhouse with his throat slashed. But his widow insists on calling her husband’s old classmate criminologist Alistair Sinclair, who in turn enlists Ziele. Together they must steer Sinclair’s methods past a police force that is focused on rounding up Drayson’s supporters and have all but rejected any other possibilities. Stefanie Pintoff’s combination of a fascinating case and the sometimes brutal and sometimes glittering history of turn-of-the-century New York makes for an utterly compelling read.  Praise for Secret of the White Rose: “Pintoff is at the top of her game.” —L ibrary

Concierge Confidential The Secrets of Serving Champagne Bitches and Caviar Queens M i chael Fa zio wi th Mic hael Mal ice

New York City’s top concierge provides an outrageous keyhole view into the luxe hotel rooms of moguls and millionaires Want two orchestra tickets to the latest Broadway hit? Call Fazio. Or a bathtub full of melted chocolate to impress your girlfriend? That’s right. Call Fazio.  He began his career as the harried assistant to an L.A. casting agent (“What do you mean Charlie Sheen called and you didn’t tell me?!”) and used what he learned to  become a concierge  at New York City’s Intercontinental Hotel. In this delightful tell-all, Fazio reveals what people really do, what they “need,” what they want to hide, what they will pay for (and what they won’t—“Oops, I must have rolled over on the remote and it turned on the payporn. Could you take it off my bill?”).  And it’s all rounded out with great insider tips on how to get the service you want.

Rainshadow Road L i s a K ley p as From one of the most beloved storytellers of our time comes a novel that will make you believe in the power of love and the possibility of magic

Lucy Marinn is a glass artist living in mystical, beautiful, Friday Harbor, Washington.  She is stunned and blindsided by the most bitter kind of betrayal:  her fiancé Kevin has left her.  His new lover is Lucy’s own sister.   Lucy’s bitterness over being dumped is multiplied by the fact that she has constantly made the wrong choices in her romantic life.   Facing the severe disapproval of Lucy’s parents, Kevin asks his friend Sam Nolan, a local vineyard owner on San Juan Island, to “romance” Lucy and hopefully loosen her up and get her over her anger. Complications ensue when Sam and Lucy begin to fall in love, Kevin has second thoughts, and Lucy discovers that the new relationship in her life began under false pretenses. Questions about love, loyalty, old patterns, mistakes, and new beginnings are explored as Lucy learns that some things in life—even after being broken—can be made into something new and beautiful. ”Kleypas can do no wrong. If you want a fantastic read, pick up this poignant, hearbreaking and deeply satisfying book. Kleypas has a knack for making readers cry, laugh and cheer—often within the first couple of pages.”

Goddess of Vengeance J ac k ie Coll in s Jackie Collins’ fierce heroine Lucky Santangelo is back with a vengeance—in a novel full of power, passion, revenge, and the raging family dynamics of the Santangelo clan—and, as always, Lucky comes out on top Lucky runs a high profile casino and hotel complex, The Keys in Vegas. Lennie, her movie star husband, is still writing and directing successful independent movies, while Max, her stubborn and gorgeous teenage daughter is about to celebrate her 18th birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs. Lucky has everything. Family. Love. Life. And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take from her one way or the other. Born a Prince in the small but affluent Middle Eastern country of Akramshar, Armand comes to America with his American mother at an early age, and rises to become a real estate business titan. Armand regards women as nothing more than breeding mares or sexual playthings, so when his people inform him that the one property he covets more than anything, The Keys, is not for sale, he is shocked. That a mere woman would dare to turn down his offer to buy The Keys is unthinkable, and Armand vows to force Lucky’s hand whatever it takes. And so the battle for power begins . . . Meanwhile Bobby and Max, his seventeen year old sister, are getting into their own brands of trouble. The word is that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” and what happens in Goddess of Vengeance will blow your mind!

Smart, smart characters.” —Ja quelin e W inspe ar

KEIGO HIGASHINO is one of the bestselling novelists in Japan. The winner of the multiple awards, his works have been adapted more than a dozen times into movies or TV series.

“Forget everything you think you know about UFOs—this insider’s account exposes —Ni ck P ope the reality...”

While still on active duty in the U.S. Army during the 1980s, Colonel John B. Alexander, Ph.D. created an interagency group to explore the controversial topic of UFOs. All members held Top Secret clearance. What they discovered was not at all what was expected. UFOs covers the numerous cases they saw, and answers questions like: • What was really in Hanger 18? • What happened at Roswell? • What is Majestic 12? • What does the government know about UFOs? With a brand new afterword, this edition of UFOs is at once a complete account of Alexander’s findings, and a call to action. There are no conspiracy theories here—only hard facts—but they are merely the beginning. ”Alexander succeeds in separating solid facts and credible witnesses from the myths and conspiracy theorists.” —Pub lishers W eekly “Packed with top grade information, insightful analysis and fascinating anecdotes, Alexander’s interesting and controversial book sets the gold standard for titles on this subject.” —Ni ck Pope, author of Ope n Skies , Closed Min ds COL.

Among his conclusions are: 1. all mainstream media outlets have a liberal bias; and 2. while some supposedly conservative outlets—such the Washington Times or Fox News’ Special Report—do lean right, their conservative bias is less pronounced than the liberal bias of most mainstream outlets.

Less Than Human Why We Demean, Enslave, and Exterminate Others Dav i d Living stone Smith

“Smith’s compelling study and his argument that the study of dehumanization be made a global priority to prevent future Rwandas or Hiroshimas is well-made and important.”

—Pub lishers Weekly

“Brutes.”   “Cockroaches.” “Lice.” “Vermin.” These and other monikers are constantly in use to refer to other humans—for political, religious, ethnic, or sexist reasons. Human beings have a tendency to regard members of their own kind as less than human.  This tendency has made atrocities  like the holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda, and the slave trade possible, and we still find it in phenomena such as xenophobia, homophobia, military propaganda,  and racism. Less Than Human draws on a rich mix of history, psychology, biology, anthropology and philosophy to document the pervasiveness of dehumanization, describe its forms, and explain why we so often resort to it. Smith posits that this behavior is rooted in human nature, but gives us hope in also stating that biological traits are malleable, showing us the road to change. Less Than Human is a chilling indictment of our nature, and it as timely as it is relevant. “Smith reasonably argues that dehumanization is rooted in human nature….He offers a rigorous philosophical theory... informed by his discipline’s precision, and by certain wellfounded suppositions about the mind...an interesting and unusually lucid book about an under-studied subject.” —New York Ti m es S unday Book R eview DAVID LIVINGSTONE SMITH  is founding director of the New England Institute for Cognitive Science and Evolutionary Studies at the University of New England. He is the author of Why We Lie and The Most Dangerous Animal and lives in Portland, Maine.

The School of Night A Novel L o u i s Bayar d

An ancient mystery,  a lost letter, and a timeless love unleash a long-buried web of intrigue spanning four centuries in this latest “exhilarating” literary thriller from Louis Bayard In the late sixteenth century, five brilliant scholars gather under the cloak of darkness. Known as the School of Night, they meet in secret to avoid the wrath of Queen Elizabeth as they discuss God, politics, astronomy, the black arts, and their latest research. When one of the men, the astronomer Thomas Harriot, enlists a housekeeper to assist in his work, he has little idea how important she will become—in his studies and in his heart.

But Crane was more than that—the circumstances surrounding his death are not what they seem.  Present day:  Sam Gaddis is a divorced academic in need of money.  A journalist friend tells him that he’s discovered a sixth member of the Cambridge spy ring. Within hours, she’s dead, apparently from a heart attack. Going through her files, Gaddis realizes she was onto a story which could turn his fortunes around and begins trailing a man who claims to know the truth about Edward Crane.Soon Gaddis is in the cross-hairs of a very real, very dangerous plot. The few remaining people with any direct connection to Crane begin dying unexpectedly. Risking everything he has and everyone he loves, Gaddis follows leads that take him all over Europe and beyond, unraveling the layers of Cold War secrets surrounding the sixth man. And, with MI6 trying to throw him off the trail, Gaddis approaches a shocking revelation that threatens the peace and security of modern Europe. “The Trinity Six is a smashing Cold War thriller for the 21st century.”

Death and the Virgin Q ueen Elizabeth I, the Mysterious Death of Amy Robsart, and the Scandal That Rocked the Throne Chr i s Sk idmore

In the tradition of Allison Weir’s New York Times bestselling Mary, Queen of Scots and the Murder of Lord Darnley, comes the most sensational crime story of Tudor England On the afternoon of September 8, 1560, at the isolated manor of Cunmor place, the body of a young woman was found at the bottom of a staircase, her neck broken. Amy Robsart was the wife of Elizabeth I’s great favorite, Robert Dudley. Immediately people suspected foul play and Elizabeth’s own reputation was in danger of serious damage. Many felt she might even lose her throne. An inquest was begun, witnesses called, and ultimately a verdict of death by accident was reached. But the mystery refused to die and cast a long shadow over Elizabeth’s reign. Using recently discovered forensic evidence from the original investigation, Skidmore is able to put an end to centuries of speculation as to the true causes of Robsart’s death. This is the story of a treacherous period in Elizabeth’s life: a tale of love, death, and tragedy, exploring the dramatic early life of England’s Virgin Queen.

Lance is a former weatherman turned stay-at-home dad who practices yoga. Darlene isa classic workaholic, but with her hours neatly penciled in, she has little patience for the needs of her husband and daughter.

His wife, Wren, an eager yogi, ready to lay down the mat for a quick session with Lance. When the fires reach the confines of this seemingly blissful neighborhood, passions and true desires are brought to the surface. What happens next door, beyond the hedges, in the romper room and executive office—it’s all as combustible as a quick brushfire on a windy day. “Like a chick-lit version of Tom Perrotta’s Little Children, Ms. Adams’s debut novel chronicles the action among stayat-home types. In the end, she even saves them from their —New York Ti m es Book R eview bored, lame selves.” “This witty debut novel features bed-hopping parents who get into more trouble (and have more fun) than their kids.”

It’s been three months since a killer disease wiped out 99% of the population. Three months since the dead reanimated. The living are few and far between now, and those who are still alive stick together to give themselves the best chance of continuing to survive. One small group has established a community on an inhospitable island. A second, much larger band of refugees have made their base in a fortified castle on the coast, overlooking the ocean. When the survivors from the island unknowingly encroach on the other group’s territory, tensions are immediately raised. Under siege from an army of thousands upon thousands of corpses, the survivors on the mainland launch a desperate attempt to take over the island and claim it for their own.

The Good D ivorce How to Walk Away Financially Sound and Emotionally Happy R ao u l Fel der and B arbara Victor

One of the world’s foremost matrimonial lawyers shows how to avoid the devastating emotional and financial scars that result from an acrimonious divorce

There is nothing better than a good marriage. But when a marriage goes bad, there is no better option than divorce to give men and women a chance to start over. Handled wisely, divorce can be a beginning, not an end. It is the doorway to a new life free of hurt, anger, and resentment.  Felder and Victor cover each phase of divorce, from knowing when to call it quits, to choosing a lawyer, to the final decree.  They explore prenuptial contracts, mediation, alimony, child custody, same-sex marriage, and life after divorce.  Some of the facts:  • The first offer a woman gets when divorce negotiations begin is usually the best. • In all divorces, income rather than assets determine who pays what to whom. • Divorce is about compromise. Divorce court is not a boxing ring.  After years of watching how divorce can go tragically wrong, Felder uses his expert knowledge, including case histories from his list of celebrity clients, to suggest how to make divorce more fair, civilized, and painless.

B reaking Silence A Novel L i nd a Ca sti llo The New York Times bestselling series hailed as “gripping” (People Magazine) and “compelling” (USA Today) returns with Police Chief Kate Burkholder called to the scene of a horrific tragedy on a peaceful Amish farm The Slabaugh family are model Amish farmers, prosperous and hardworking, with four children and a happy extended family. When the parents and an uncle are found dead in their barn, it appears to be a gruesome accident: methane gas asphyxiation caused by a poorly ventilated cesspit. But in the course of a routine autopsy, the coroner discovers that one of the victims suffered a head wound before death; clearly, foul play was involved. But who would want to make orphans of the Slabaugh’s children? And is this murder somehow related to a recent string of vicious hate crimes against the Amish? Having grown up Amish, Kate is determined to bring the killer to justice. Because the other series of attacks are designated hate crimes, the state sends in agent John Tomasetti, with whom Kate has a long and complex relationship. Together, they search for the link between the crimes—and uncover a dark secret at work beneath the placid surface of this idyllic Amish community. Chock full of twists and chills and set against the unusual world of the Amish, this series “will delight fans of Chelsea Cain and Thomas Harris” (USA Today).

Praise for Linda Castillo: “Another knock-out job. I love this series.”

True Boo is the candid and often hilarious memoir of a largerthan-life athlete, and a wild behind-the-scenes look at life on the PGA Tour. Boo takes readers on a rollicking journey that begins with his humble childhood growing up in Milton, Florida. Called “a nobody from nowhere” and the “Crocodile Dundee of golf,” Boo had to earn respect on the Tour. His game ascended in record time, culminating  in his now legendary Ryder Cup victories—going 2-0-1 in his three matches—and his backto-back Verizon Heritage wins. With stories from the Tour, frequent down-home phrases, figures of speech, locker-room tales, plenty of “Booisms” and never-before-seen photos, this is a golf book unlike any other.

“This is a surefire winner, Spencer-Fleming’s fans who have been waiting eagerly for her latest won’t be disappointed; this series, as intelligent as it is enthralling, just keeps getting better.”—Booklis t (starred review)  On a warm September evening in the Millers Kill community center, five veterans sit down in rickety chairs to try to make sense of their experiences in Iraq.  What they will find is murder, conspiracy, and the unbreakable ties that bind them to one another and their small Adirondack town.The Rev. Clare Fergusson wants to forget the things she saw as a combat helicopter pilot and concentrate on her relationship with Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne. MP Eric McCrea needs to control the explosive anger threatening his job as a police officer. Will Ellis, high school track star, faces the reality of life as a double amputee. Orthopedist Trip Stillman is denying the extent of  his traumatic brain injury. And bookkeeper Tally McNabb wrestles with guilt over the in-country affair that may derail her marriage. But coming home is harder than it looks. One vet will struggle with drugs and alcohol. One will lose his family and friends. One will die. Since their first meeting, Russ and Clare’s bond has been tried, torn, and forged by adversity. But when he rules the veteran’s death a suicide, she violently rejects his verdict, drawing the surviving vets into an unorthodox investigation that threatens jobs, relationships, and her own future with Russ. As the days cool and the nights grow longer, they will uncover a trail of deceit that runs from their tiny town to the upper ranks of the U.S. Army, and from the waters of the Millers Kill to the unforgiving streets of Baghdad.

Five years to the day later, 21-year-old Stephany Flores Ramirez was reported missing in Lima, Peru. Implicated in both crimes was one young man: Joran van der Sloot. A 22-year-old Dutchman, van der Sloot has become the subject of intense scrutiny by the media and the public in the years since 2005. He was arrested and detained by Aruban authorities in connection with the Holloway murder, only to be released after questioning. In 2008, during a Dutch sting operation, he admitted to being present for Holloway’s death—but later recanted his statement. In 2010, on the five year anniversary of her disappearance, a young business student in Peru named Stephany Flores Ramirez disappeared, only to be found dead three days later in a hotel room—registered to Joran van der Sloot. He was arrested for the murder, and he confessed, but later claimed it was coerced.

LISA PULITZER is a former correspondent for The New York Times. She is the author of more than a dozen nonfiction books, including the bestselling Stolen Innocence. Cole Thompson is the co-author with Catherine Crier of A Deadly Game, a #1 New York Times bestseller about Laci and Scott Peterson.

Named one of the top ten crime books of the year 2010 in the UK, Ashes to Dust was in the same company as Jo Nesbo, Kate Atkinson, and Benjamin Black. In this superlative thriller, attorney and sometime sleuth Thora Gudmundsdottir is hired to defend a man accused of murdering his childhood sweetheart. When bodies are discovered at a volcanic tourist attraction, her client, Markús Magnússon, has a most inventive tale to tell, but the locals seem oddly reluctant to back him up. Tense, taut, and terrifying, this is a superb piece of Nordic fiction from one of Iceland’s top writers. Praise for Yrsa Sigurdardottir: “Sigurdardottir delivers terrific clammy atmosphere and frequent frissons of fear; she is entitled to join the front rank —The Tim es (UK) of Nordic crime writers.” “Brilliantly plotted and chilling.”  “Iceland’s crime queen.”

Trespasser Pau l Do iron “A tense thriller that stars a memorable main character and brings the rugged Maine landscape vividly to life.”* While on patrol one foggy March evening, Mike Bowditch receives a call for help. A woman has reportedly struck a deer on a lonely coast road. When the game warden arrives on the scene, he finds blood in the road—but both the driver and the deer have vanished. And the state trooper assigned to the accident seems strangely unconcerned. The details of the disappearance seem eerily familiar. Seven years earlier, a jury convicted lobsterman Erland Jefferts of the rape and murder of a wealthy college student and sentenced him to life in prison. For all but his most fanatical defenders, justice was served. But when the missing woman is found brutalized in a manner that suggests Jefferts might have been framed, Bowditch receives an ominous warning from state prosecutors to stop asking questions. For Bowditch, doing nothing is not an option. But as he closes in on his quarry, he suddenly discovers how dangerous his opponents are and how far they will go to prevent him from bringing a killer to justice. *L ibrary Jour n al (starred review)

Advance praise for Trespasser: “Doiron delivers another perfectly plotted mystery peopled with multidimensional characters, but, in addition, his writing has matured. . .and the heart-pounding account of Mike’s fourwheeling chase through the woods is a masterpiece of high-octane nar—Booklis t (starred review) rative.”

Late one night after interviewing a witness, Lacey Flint, a young detective constable, stumbles onto a woman brutally stabbed just moments before. Within 24 hours a reporter receives an anonymous letter pointing out alarming similarities between the murder and Jack the Ripper’s first— and calling out Lacey by name. If it’s real, and they have a killer bent on recreating London’s bloody past, history shows they have just five days until the next attempt. No one believes the connections are anything more than a sadistic killer’s game, not even Lacey, whom the killer seems to be taunting specifically. But as the case unfolds the details start reminding her of a part of her own past she’d rather keep hidden. And the only way to do that is to catch the killer herself. Fast-paced and riveting, S. J. Bolton’s modern Gothic novel is nothing less than a masterpiece of suspense fiction. Praise for S. J.

Global G irlfriends How One Mom Made It Her Business to Help Women in Poverty Worldwide Sta cey Ed gar

“Global Girlfriends is a wonderful example of the incredible change that one person can make with small but persistently bold steps. If you’re looking for inspiration, this book is definitely for you.” — B lake Myc os k ie, fo under and c hief shoe giver, TOMS Shoes

HC: 978-0-312-62173-5

Eight years ago Stacey Edgar had a two-thousand-dollar tax return and a deep desire to help provide economic security for women in need. She knew that of the 1.3 billion people living on less than one dollar per day, seventy percent are women. What she didn’t have was a business plan. Or a passport. But that didn’t stop her from creating a socially conscious business that has helped women on five continents feed their families and send their children to school. Global Girlfriend has grown into a multimillion dollar enterprise that helps provide economic security and fair trade for women across the world, because Stacey Edgar refused to be paralyzed by the size of world poverty. She simply started by taking several small steps, personal responsibility firmly in hand, and never looked back. “A heartening story of big dreams and small steps. Edgar has forged ahead with a beguiling combination of head and heart to create a business model that works for rich and poor alike.”

Highlights include  biomechanical analysis proving a Neanderthal woman would •A beat Arnold Schwarzenegger in an arm-wrestling match • A linguistic study showing 50 Cent would bomb in a rap-battle with the poet Homer • Archeological evidence that suggests today’s fastest sprinters would be defeated by even average Aboriginal Australian runners of 20,000 years ago • A comparison of injury rates proving today’s Ultimate Fighting isn’t half the blood sport ancient Greek Pankration was. For modern man, the results of these investigations aren’t always pretty. But in its look at the history of men, Manthropology is unfailingly smart, informative, surprising, and engaging. “Wry [and] amusing….The author’s application of anthropological research is rigorous and the writing is sharp and —K irkus R eviews  often funny.”

The Jack B ank A Memoir of a South African Childhood G len R et ief

An extraordinary, literary memoir of a gay white South African, coming of age at the end of apartheid An introspective and fascinating memoir about a gay, privileged white boy  coming of age in a political and cultural landscape in transition. Glen Retief’s childhood was at once recognizably ordinary—and brutally unusual. His unflinching story of South Africa in the early 1970s explores not only issues of race and sexuality, but also abuse, violence and retribution.  Raised on the edges of a game preserve where his father worked, Retief’s warm nuclear family was a haven  against chaotic forces just outside its borders: lions lazing on the school yard’s basketball court, a childhood friend whose uncle led a death squad, and  Glen’s  cultured grandfather who quoted Shakespeare at barbecues yet abused Glen’s sister in an antique-filled, tobaccoscented living room. But it was when Retief was sent to boarding school that he was truly exposed to human cruelty and frailty. When the prefects were caught torturing younger boys, they invented “the jack bank,” where underclassmen could save beatings and earn interest on their deposits. Retief writes movingly of the complicated emotions and politics in this punitive all-male world, and of how he navigated them, even as he began to realize that his sexuality was different than his peers’.

In the remote outpost of Now Zad, Afghanistan, Pen Farthing and his troop of young Royal Marines survive frequent engagements with the Taliban and forge links with the local community.  Appalled by the horrors of local dog fighting, Pen has no choice but to intervene.  Then one of the dogs he frees finds his way into the Marine compound--and into Pen’s heart. Soon other strays are drawn into the sanctuary provided by  the makeshift pound, including one young mother who crawls under the compound fence carrying her newborn pups to safety. As his tour of duty draws to an end, Pen cannot leave the dogs of Now Zad to their fates. He begins hatching plans to help them escape to a better life. This is the gripping account of  one man’s courage and humanity, and his fight to make a difference in the most hostile and dangerous environments, one dog at a time. “A tale for true dog lovers.”

From Splendor to Revolution The Romanov Women J ul i a P. G elar di

“An absorbing account”(Booklist) of the powerful women of the imperial family and the revolution and war that destroyed their way of life The early 1850s until the late 1920s marked a turbulent and significant era for Russia. During that time the country underwent a massive transformation, taking it from days of grandeur under the tsars to the chaos of revolution and the beginnings of the Soviet Union. At the center of all this tumult were four women of the Romanov dynasty. Marie Alexandrovna and Olga Constantinovna were born into the family, Russian Grand Duchesses at birth. Marie Feodorovna and Marie Pavlovna married into the dynasty, the former born a Princess of Denmark, the latter a Duchess of the German duchy of Mecklendburg-Schwerin. In From Splendor to Revolution, we watch these pampered aristocratic women fight for their lives as the cataclysm of war engulfs them. In a matter of a few short years, they fell from the pinnacle of wealth and power to the depths of danger, poverty, and exile. It is an unforgettable epic story.

V ice One Cop’s Story of Patrolling America’s Most Dangerous City Sgt. John R. Baker with Stephen J. Rivele

“A thrilling, ultraviolent story about the endless struggle that the Compton PD faced in attempting to prevent the city from ‘dissolving into chaos.’ In-your-face violence and resilient heroism that leaps off the page.” —K irkus R eviews HC: 978-0-312-59687-3

Compton: the most violent and crime-ridden city in America. What had been a semi-rural suburb of Los Angeles in the 1950s became a battleground for the Black Panthers and Malcolm X Foundation, the home of the Crips and Bloods and the first Hispanic gangs, and the cradle of gangster rap. At the center of it, trying to maintain order was the Compton Police Department, never more than 130-strong, and facing an army of criminals that numbered over 10,000. At any given time, fully one-tenth of Compton’s population was in prison, yet this tidal wave of crime was held back by the thinnest line of the law—the Compton Police. John R.  Baker was raised in Compton, eventually  becoming the city’s most decorated officer involved in some of its most notorious, horrifying and scandalous criminal cases. Baker’s account of Compton from 1950 to 2001 is one of the most powerful and compelling cop memoirs ever written—an intensely human account of sacrifice and public service, and the price the men and women of the Compton Police Department paid to preserve their city. “A candid and unapologetic glimpse into a lawman’s life. Grim, exhilarating, heroic with a dash of history thrown in for good measure.”
