The Little Way of ruthie Leming An inspirational memoir about the timeless lessons a big-city writer learns when his small-town sister is diagnosed with cancer. When rod Dreher’s little sister ruthie was diagnosed at age 40 with a virulent form of cancer, he was touched by the way the community he had left behind—St. Francisville, Louisiana (pop. 1,700)—rallied around his dying sister. He was also struck by the grace and courage his sister displayed in the face of death. Back home for ruthie’s funeral, Dreher began to wonder whether the ordinary life ruthie led in Louisiana was in fact a path to hidden grandeur, even spiritual greatness, concealed within the modest life of a mother and teacher. To explore this revelation, Dreher and his wife Julie decided to leave Philadelphia and move back to his hometown. There, he would help with family responsibilities, be there for ruthie’s girls, and raise his three children amidst the rituals that had defined his family for five generations—Mardi Gras, L.S.U. football games, and deer hunting. As David Brooks poignantly described it in his New York Times column, Dreher and his wife “decided to accept the limitations of small-town life in exchange for the privilege of being a part of a community.”

COUrTeSY OF dreher FaMilY

That morning in Starhill, the japonicas were in bloom, and a lone paperwhite peered at Ruthie from just beyond the porch rail. It was crazy to think that just one week ago, Ruthie was reveling at the Spanish Town parade. Now she knew her body was being consumed by cancer. She was so beautiful that morning, in the sunshine, and an awful thought crossed my mind: I’m never going to see her like this again. She was 41 years old, in the prime of her life, glowing with health; the black ridge at the base of her neck where surgeons had gone in was the only sign that something was wrong with her.... “Ruthie…” I said, then stopped. I was speechless, and began to cry. She met my tears with tears of her own. “I have to ask you to please forgive me for every bad thing I ever did to you,” I said. “I’m so, so sorry. There are things I did. There are things I should have done but didn’t. And I’m sorry.” “It’s fine, it’s—.” She couldn’t finish the sentence. She flicked her right hand as if dispelling a moth, then grabbed the nape of my neck, pulled me in tight and held me. We cried together, like little children.

Born of Fury

Dealing with China

The League: Book 6

An Insider Unmasks the New Economic Superpower

Sherrilyn Kenyon

Henry M. Paulson, Jr., Former U.S. Treasury secretary

The line between enemies and allies becomes dangerously blurred in the sixth novel in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s #1 New York Times bestselling The League series.

Hank Paulson, former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and CEO of Goldman Sachs, uses anecdotes and analysis to explain the inner workings of Chinese capitalism.

When Hu Jintao, China’s then vice president, came to visit the New York Stock Exchange and Ground Zero in 2002, he asked Hank Paulson to be his guide. It was a testament to the pivotal role that Goldman Sachs played in helping China experiment with private enterprise. In DEALING WITH CHINA, the bestselling author of On the Brink draws on his unprecedented access to both the political and business leaders of modern China to answer several key questions: • How did China become an economic superpower so quickly? • Who really runs China? • How does business get done there? • What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to engage, compete, and beat China?

Counted among the fiercest Andarion warriors ever born, Hauk is one of the five founding members of the Sentella, an organization that has declared war on the League. Hauk’s enemies are legion, but he fears nothing and no one. He will do whatever it takes to survive and protect his Sentella brethren. Sumi Antaxas is one of the best assassins the League has ever trained. In her world, failure is not an option and she has never met a target she couldn’t execute. So when she’s assigned to eliminate Hauk, she believes it’ll be a quick and easy mission. But nothing is ever as simple as it seems. When Sumi is overtaken by enemy forces, her only chance for survival becomes the one man she’s been sent to kill....

Like Henry Kissinger’s influential and bestselling On China (Penguin, 2011), DEALING WITH CHINA looks at the strategic relationship between China and the U.S. through the eyes of a statesman who has dealt with China on both economic and political matters. Paulson served under President George W. Bush as Secretary of the Treasury from June 2006 to January 2009. Before coming to the Treasury, he spent over 30 years at Goldman Sachs, rising to Chairman and CEO. In 2011, he founded The Paulson Institute— “a think-and-do tank” located at The University of Chicago that promotes cross-border investment between the U.S. and China.

It’s All Good

Seeds of Hope

Delicious, Easy Recipes that Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great

Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants

Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Turshen

Jane Goodall with Gail Hudson Introduction by Michael Pollan

Gwyneth Paltrow, Academy Award®-winning actress and bestselling cookbook author, returns with recipes for the foods she eats when she wants to lose weight, look good, and feel more energetic.

978-1-4555-2271-2 • $30.00 ($33.00 in Canada) Cookbook • 8 ¼ x 10 • 280 pgs • 100 halftone photos Territories: World

Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high.  He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no soy, nothing processed at all! An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make mealtime boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor’s guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic, and looked great. Now, in IT’S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Buckwheat and Banana Pancakes • Spicy Sweet Potato Soup • Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger • Super Crispy Roast Chicken • Power Brownies • Banana “Ice Cream” • and more!

Paltrow’s first cookbook, My Father’s Daughter (GC Life & Style, 978-0-446-55731-3, 4/11), was on the New York Times bestseller list for nine weeks, selling more than 137,000 hardcover copies. Paltrow is an Academy Award-winning actress who is well known all over the world. Most recently she appeared in the blockbuster The Avengers and will return in the role of Virginia “Pepper” Potts in the 2013 release of Iron Man 3. Not only is she recognized for her acting roles, but also as a devoted mother to Apple and Moses, her children with Coldplay lead vocalist, Chris Martin. Paltrow was the co-host of PBS’s series, Spain: On the Road Again, with Mario Batali and Mark Bittman. Her knowledge of the cuisine of Spain and her culinary skills were highlighted on the show. Paltrow’s popular blog, goop.com, is packed with advice on where to travel and what to see, do, wear, and, of course, eat. Between subscribers and visitors to the site, Goop receives well over one million hits per month.

In her wise and elegant new book, Jane Goodall blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give readers a deeper understanding of the world around us. SEEDS OF HOPE takes us from Goodall’s home in England to her home-away-from-home in Africa, deep inside the Gombe forest, where she and the chimpanzees are enchanted by the fig and plum trees they encounter. She introduces us to botanists around the world, as well as the places where hope for plants can be found, such as The Millennium Seed Bank, where one billion seeds are preserved. She shows us the secret world of plants with all their mysteries and potential for healing our bodies as well as Planet Earth.  Looking at the world as an adventurer, scientist, and devotee of sustainable foods and gardening—and setting forth simple goals we can all take to protect the plants around us— Jane Goodall delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards. ●●

Keeping Hope Alive

The O vernight Diet

One Woman—90,000 Lives Changed

The Proven Plan for Fast, Permanent Weight Loss

Dr. Hawa Abdi with Sarah J. Robbins

Caroline Apovian, MD, with Frances Sharpe

The moving memoir of one brave woman who, along with her daughters, has kept 90,000 of her fellow citizens safe, healthy, and educated for more than 20 years in Somalia.

The first diet designed to produce overnight results that last, all while eating more and exercising less.

Dr. Hawa Abdi, “the Mother Teresa of Somalia,” is the founder of a massive camp for internally displaced people located a few miles from war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia. In 1983 she founded a one-room clinic to offer medical care to those living outside of the city, but then in 1991, the Somali government collapsed, famine struck, and aid groups fled. Since then she has dedicated herself to providing help for people whose lives have been shattered by violence and poverty. Her hospital grew to over 400 beds, she built a school, and her 13,000 acres of farmland turned into a camp that has numbered about 90,000 displaced people, mostly women and children. She courageously stood up to terrorists who kidnapped her, and she demanded an apology after they released her. She inspired her two daughters, Deqo, 37, and Amina, 34, to become doctors. Today this brave trio works side by side, treating an average of 500 people a day. Both a warrior and a nurturer, Dr. Abdi’s story of incomprehensible bravery and perseverance will inspire readers everywhere. ●● (FINAL COVER TO COME)

When rebels attacked the hospital and camp in 2010, Dr. Abdi made them back down after two weeks—and even got them to write an apology. In his New York Times column, Nicholas Kristof wrote, “there’s something that we can all learn from the courage, compassion and tolerance of Dr. Hawa Abdi.”

THE OVERNIGHT DIET is the world’s first high-octane hybrid diet designed to produce instant, lasting results, preserve lean muscle, prevent disease, and increase longevity.

“I felt an enormous sadness shoot through my chest, and my eyes burned with tears. It frightened me how much I loved him; I wanted to call him back from wherever he was going, but in a rush of knowledge I realized my daddy was a tricky, dangerous man, and I could never trust his love.” Set in the Midwest in the last years of the 50s, THE CONDITIONS OF LOVE traces the life of young Eunice from her turbulent childhood to the present in three parts. The first part is about familial love—in this case, from a nutty mother and an absentee father. The second part is about the very true love one can receive from a stranger, and how palpable that love and companionship can be. And, finally, it is about romantic love—hot, sexy love between two great looking people…the movie kind of love. THE CONDITIONS OF LOVE is the classic coming of age story where a smart heroine tries to make sense of the world and her place in it. We watch Eunice grow from a naïve young girl to a world-wise woman—and her journey is all of our journeys. “Trying to stop loving a person was like trying to stop your blood from flowing. It was like trying to hold your breath underwater for hours, which [my pet] turtle could do, but I could not.” ●●

Acclaimed, award-winning author Benjamin Percy joins the GCP list with an epic and terrifying thriller set in the American West.

“rED MOON is a serious, politically symbolic novel—a literary novel about lycanthropes. If George Orwell had imagined a future where the werewolf population had grown to the degree that they were colonized and drugged, this terrifying novel might be it.”

BENJAMIN PErCY is the writer-in-residence at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.

—JOHN IrVING

“Benjamin Percy is one of the most gifted and versatile writers to appear in American publishing in years. His degree of craft and natural talent are extraordinary; his ear for language is absolutely perfect. His prose has the masculine power of Ernest Hemingway’s, but also the sensibilities and compassion of Eudora Welty. His writing is like a meeting of Shakespeare and rock ‘n’ roll. Benjamin Percy knows how to keep it in E-major, and what a —JAMES LEE BUrKE ride it is.”

Southern League

Into the Abyss

A True Story of Baseball, Civil Rights, and the Deep South’s Most Compelling Pennant Race

An Extraordinary True Story

Larry Colton

Carol Shaben

A truly unique look at the Civil Rights Movement as seen through the eyes of Alabama’s first racially-integrated professional sports team.

Only four men survived the plane crash. The pilot. A politician. A cop…and the criminal he was shackled to.

In the history of the Civil Rights Movement, 1964 was a pivotal year. In Birmingham, Alabama, a scene of intense racial conflict, a church bombing had taken the lives of four young black girls. And yet, only months later, the Birmingham Barons of baseball’s Southern League fielded the state’s first integrated pro team. Bestselling author Larry Colton, a former major league pitcher himself, revisits that momentous year of racial tension and unrest as seen through the eyes of the Barons players, a talented group that included future big leaguers such as Johnny “Blue Moon” Odom, a hard throwing pitcher, Tommie Reynolds, a young outfielder, and Bert Campaneris, a dark-skinned shortstop from Cuba, all of them playing for Heywood Sullivan, the team’s white Alabama-raised manager. More than just a story about baseball, Southern League is an eye-opening look at an important era in the history of America.

On an icy night in October 1984, a commuter plane carrying nine passengers crashed in the remote wilderness of northern Alberta, killing six people. Four survived: the rookie pilot, a prominent politician, a cop, and the criminal he was escorting to face charges. Despite the poor weather, Erik Vogel, the 24-year-old pilot, was under intense pressure to fly. Larry Shaben, the author’s father and Canada’s first Muslim Cabinet Minister, was commuting home after a busy week at the Alberta Legislature. Constable Scott Deschamps was escorting Paul Archambault, a drifter wanted on an outstanding warrant. Against regulations, Archambault’s handcuffs were removed—a decision that would profoundly impact the men’s survival. As the men fight through the night to stay alive, the dividing lines of power, wealth, and status are erased, and each man is forced to confront the precious and limited nature of his own existence. ●●

Colton is also the author of No Ordinary Joes: The Extraordinary True Story of Four Submariners in War and Love and Life (Crown, 2010) and Goat Brothers (Doubleday, 1993).

Carol Shaben won two Canadian National Magazine Awards—a Gold Medal for Investigative Reporting and a Silver Medal for Politics and Public Interest—for articles that highlighted the subject of this book.

My Beef with Meat

A House Divided

The Healthiest Argument for Eating a Plant-Strong Diet

Kimberla Lawson Roby

Rip Esselstyn

The New York Times bestselling author of The Engine 2 Diet is back with the definitive guide to the benefits of plant-based eating—and all new recipes.

The New York Times bestselling author of The Reverend’s Wife returns with the latest installment in her award-winning Reverend Curtis Black series.

All is not well with Charlotte and Curtis Black. The 10th installment of the popular series finds the once happy couple facing multiple problems. Their son, Matthew, is expecting a baby with his girlfriend, Raquel. Unfortunately, Charlotte cannot stand Raquel’s mother and when a major blow-up between the grandmothers-to-be forces Raquel into an early labor, Charlotte receives an ultimatum from her son and increasing disapproval from her husband. All the while, a mysterious character from Curtis’s past lurks in the shadows, threatening to take away Curtis’s coveted position of senior pastor of Deliverance Outreach. Times of trouble are descending upon the Black family in more ways than one. Will they be able to overcome their challenges and stand together against someone who would take it all away?

MY BEEF WITH MEAT is the ultimate argument that a plant-based diet is truly the best way to eat. Rip Esselstyn arms readers with the facts that prove the health benefits of this eating plan and convince curious carnivores to change their habits once and for all. He even reveals information about many foods people believe are healthy that scientific research shows are not. Anyone who wants to prevent heart attacks, stroke, cancer, and Alzheimer’s, and convince the skeptics they are misinformed, will be interested to learn: • You don’t need meat and dairy to have strong bones or get enough protein • You get enough calcium and iron in plants • The myth of the Mediterranean diet • There is a serious problem with the Paleo diet • If you eat plants, you lose weight and feel great • And much more.

Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV

Reboot Your Business. Reboot Your Life. Your Future Depends on It.

Brian Stelter

Mitch Joel

As The Late Shift did for late night TV, TOP OF THE MORNING reveals the dish and dirt behind the polite smiles and perky demeanors of morning television.

The unique book that individuals desperately need to “reboot” their everyday assumptions about business and their career in order to compete in the new landscape of e-commerce.

When America wakes up with personable and charming hosts like Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Robin Roberts, and George Stephanopoulos, it’s hard to imagine them stealing each others’ guests at the airport. But that is just part of the crazy reality New York Times staff writer Brian Stelter reveals in TOP OF THE MORNING—an examination of the most competitive time slot in television, complete with Machiavellian booking wars and manic behavior by the stars. Stelter is behind the scenes as Ann Curry replaces Vieira on the Today show, only to be fired a year later in a fiasco that made national headlines. He’s backstage as Good Morning America beats Today for the first time in a generation. And he’s there as Roberts is diagnosed with a crippling disease—on the very same day that her show is toasting its hard-earned victory. Readers will be fascinated by the never-before-told stories about past hosts (Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, Charlie Gibson) and by the present-day battle for first place before dawn, when every single viewer counts and where there are new competitors all the time (Stelter also rides along at CBS as Charlie Rose and Gayle King try to reinvent morning TV). The book is based on all new reporting at the highest levels as well as juicy, wellsourced gossip. ●●

Surprisingly, the bitterly fought morning TV wars have not been the subject of an in-depth exposé before, and this book will generate the same level of interest and excitement as Bill Carter’s The Late Shift (Hyperion, 1995), which was a classic New York Times bestseller. The book will be released at a tumultuous time in morning TV, with Good Morning America and Today both vying to be number one and receiving an outsized amount of media attention for it. Prior to joining the New York Times in 2007, Stelter was the founder and editor of TVNewser, the preeminent blog about the television news industry. He sold TVNewser to Mediabistro.com in 2004 and continued to run it until 2007. A ubiquitous presence in the media, Stelter has more than 170,000 Facebook fans, 130,000 Twitter followers, and millions more through the New York Times.

Just a few years ago, all a company needed was a modest website and a toll-free 800 number. Those days are, of course, long gone. Keeping customers and clients happy—and trying to attract new ones—demands an entirely new and innovative approach to online commerce. Mitch Joel, one of the world’s leading experts in this area, warns that the time has come to hit CTRL ALT DEL and build e-commerce platforms and business models from scratch. Those who don’t will not only find their company sliding backwards but might also find themselves unemployable within five years. Joel explains the convergence of five key factors that are changing online businesses forever, outlines what readers need to know to adapt right now, and presents the seven triggers to help take advantage of these game-changing factors. Along the way, Joel introduces the concept of “squiggle,” and how this unexpected life skill can— and will—change your career for the better. ●●

Man Up!

101 Things I Learned™… Series

Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence

Inspired by the bestselling 101 Things I Learned in Architecture School, here are two essential guidebooks for anyone who has ever considered a career in law or engineering.

Ross Mathews With a Foreword by Gwyneth Paltrow and an Afterword by Chelsea Handler

From Ross Mathews, one of the beloved stars of Chelsea Lately and After Chelsea, comes a hilarious debut collection of observations and personal stories.

“Some people call what happened to me ‘a lucky break.’ Sort of, but I don’t really believe in luck. I believe in Oprah, which is why I quote her all the time. I once heard her say, ‘There’s no such thing as luck. Luck is when opportunity meets preparation.’” In his first book, Ross Mathews tells readers what it means to “man up”—to realize, no matter how hard one may hope against hope, that you are what you are. The sooner you stop being embarrassed about what makes you unique and start embracing and celebrating what makes you special, the closer you get to living the life of your dreams. Admittedly still a work-in-progress, Mathews recounts how he’s benefitted from this frame of mind his whole life, from growing up as an atypical kid in a small Northwestern farm town to living as an atypical adult in Los Angeles, to eventually being his loud, proud, and unapologetically genuine self on national television. Laugh-out-loud funny and filled with Mathews’s signature wit and wisdom, MAN UP! is not to be missed. ●●

MAN UP! features a foreword by Gwyneth Paltrow and an afterword by Chelsea Handler. Ross Mathews rose to fame as “Ross the Intern” and, later, as a correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He has since gone on to appear on Celebrity Fit Club, The Insider, and as a regular guest host and weekly panelist on Chelsea Lately. It’s been announced that Mathews will develop, host, and co-produce a talk show for the E! network, in collaboration with Chelsea Handler’s production company, Borderline Amazing.

The Kill room

Praise for Jeffery deaver:

JeFFery deaver

“Deaver is a master of manipulation.” —associated Press

A U.S. citizen in the Bahamas is shot by a sniper par excellence—a man capable of delivering a “million-dollar bullet” into the heart of his targets, a mile or more away. The investigation reveals that the victim, robert Moreno, a man known to have strong antiAmerican sympathies, was assassinated by the U.S. government. New York assistant district attorney Nance Laurel, unwilling to let the government get away with ignoring the rule of law, brings a criminal case against both the director of the National Intelligence and Operations Service (NIOS), who ordered the killing, and the sniper himself. Assigned the job of investigating the killing, Lincoln rhyme, aided by his partner Amelia Sachs and his regular crew of associates, takes on the controversial case. But the director of NIOS learns of the investigation and takes steps to derail it. One of the eeriest villains in recent fiction, Jacob Ohnley, takes on the task of eliminating witnesses and stopping Laurel, rhyme, and Sachs, using his favorite “companion,” a unique and deadly knife he reveres more than most people. ●

I am like this tree, he thought. The poisonwood tree. . . . I’ll mention this— The glint again. In a tiny splinter of a second: A flicker of movement in the tree’s sparse leaves, the tall window in front of him exploded. Glass turned to a million crystals of blowing snow, fire blossomed in his chest. Moreno found himself lying on the couch, which had been five feet behind him.

But . . . but what happened here? What is this? I’m fainting, I’m fainting. I can’t breathe. He stared at the tree, now clearer, so much clearer, without the window glass filtering the view. The branches waved in the sweet wind off the water. Leaves swelling, receding. It was breathing for him. Because he couldn’t, not with his chest on fire. Not with the pain. Shouts, cries for help around him. Blood, blood everywhere.

The Astronaut Wives Club ●

In a thoroughly researched page-turner that transports readers back to the beginning of our space race, bestselling author Lily Koppel reveals for the first time the stories and secrets of America’s unsung heroes— the wives of our original astronauts.

As America’s Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons, donning sherbetswirled Pucci dresses and lacquering their hair into extravagant rocket styles. Annie Glenn, with her picture-perfect marriage and many magazine features, was the envy of the other wives; platinumblonde bombshell rene Carpenter was proclaimed JFK’s favorite; Betty Grissom worried her husband was having affairs; Louise Shepard just wanted to be left alone; and licensed pilot Trudy Cooper arrived on base with a dirty secret. With each spectacular launch, they worried they might never see their husbands again. Together, they formed the Astronaut Wives Club. A fascinating, dishy, and moving read, set against the backdrop of the Space Age and a country that would be forever changed by it, THE ASTrONAUT WIVES CLUB tells the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history. 978-1-4555-0325-4 • $26.99 ($29.99 in canada) History • 6 x 9 • 384 pgs • two 8-pg 4/C photo inserts • Territories: World Hachette audio: Unabr.

Lily Koppel is the bestselling author of The Red leather Diary: Reclaiming a life Through the Pages of a lost Journal (Harper, 2008). She has written for the New York Times, New York Times Magazine, New York Times Book Review, Huffington Post, and Glamour. Television rights to THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB have been sold to Imagine Entertainment (Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s company). This dramatic story, full of rich characters and a uniquely atmospheric setting, will appeal to the same audience that made The Girls from Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow (Gotham, 2009) and Girls like Us by Sheila Weller (Atria, 2008) New York Times bestsellers, as well as book clubs, baby boomers, Mad Men aficionados, fashionistas, feminists, readers of history, and more. This is a heartwarming story of friendship. Fifty years later, many of the survinving wives are sill friends!

Welcome to the Jewel of the Space Coast. Cruising beachfront Highway A1A, the wives checked out Motel Row, hub of astro-tourism. The Holiday Inn, a sparkling futuristic Jetsons-style sandcastle, was home for the wives’ beach weekend—and whenever they’d come to Cocoa, thanks to hotelier Henri Landwirth’s unlimited offer of $1 a night rooms. When the wives came in, they had to walk through a lobby of groupies who were always there. The guys had a name for them—Cape Cookies. The wives weren’t too sure they liked the sound of that, but the cookie phenomenon explained the topless-shoeshine girl who set up shop on Motel Row. But, the guys said, and the wives couldn’t

In Florida, their husbands took them shopping, not for sundresses, but new cars, Corvettes on loan for $1 year, the same it cost for a night at the Holiday. Then they each chose a station wagon for their wives. Jo, and Trudy especially, who flew planes and raced cars, would have liked to have fast rides like their husbands—but, oh! No! They had children and wagons: family rooms on wheels were just what the doctor ordered. But the thing with the goodies, which the wives were starting to get savvy to, was that nothing was for free. They always had to work for it. The room, the dinner buffet, the fresh towels were free, but the astronaut families were unwitting walking advertisements.

Everybody’s Brother

Finerman’s Rules

CeeLo Green with Big Gipp and David Wild

Secrets I’d Only Tell My Daughters About Business and Life Karen Finerman

The multi-platinum and Grammy ® Award-winning artist CeeLo Green shows that the underdog can win in his true-life story.

In the tradition of Lois Frankel’s classic bestseller Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office, one of the top stars of CNBC’s Fast Money reveals her smart, contrarian strategies for getting ahead and having it all.

He dresses as Liberace, performs with Muppets, and does 360-degree flips with a grand piano at his fingertips. He’s a star of a #1-rated network reality show and is a genre-breaking artist who has garnered millions of fans. He can recreate himself faster than Madonna, and because of this he’s remained a man of mystery. Now, CeeLo Green finally opens up, revealing his personal story and what it took for this underdog to find his voice and maintain his individuality while rising to the top. At times gritty and always truthful, this memoir will be threaded through with some hope, some inspiration, and some advice, along with narration by CeeLo’s “brother from another mother” Big Gipp. Both in its tone and in its look, EVERYBODY’S BROTHER is a theatrical, artistic statement that perfectly captures its memorable maverick author. ●●

Karen Finerman likes to tell people she was raised Calvinist. Or as her mother used to say, “I buy my girls Calvin Klein clothes. Then when they graduate from college they have to pay for them themselves.” In order to keep herself in Calvin, Karen went to Wall Street. As a woman working in a male-dominated industry, she began to notice the ways in which she and her female colleagues sabotaged themselves both professionally and personally. Why did they allow personal baggage to undermine them at work unlike their male counterparts? Why did they tend to poll others (Do I look good in these shoes?) rather than trusting their own abilities to decide? Divided into three sections (Work, Money, Love), FINERMAN’S RULES serves up unvarnished advice to women about getting ahead and taking control of their financial and personal destiny. Or as Karen puts it, “You wouldn’t let a man tell you where to live, how to vote, or what to wear?  Then tell me why 80 percent of women have a man in charge of their money?”

With a distinctive soul sound that appeals to everyone’s pop sensibilities, Green’s #1 single “F--- You” was number one in spins in America across all radio formats in 2012, received more than 57 million YouTube hits, and sold 5 million singles. He was also the lead singer of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, winner of two 2007 Grammys for their #1 hit “Crazy.” Green is currently one of four celebrity judges on NBC’s #1 reality television show The Voice. Season 2, which ran February-May 2012, averaged nearly 16 million viewers. Green has renewed his contract for a third season, which premieres September 10, 2012. Big Gipp introduced Green to the members of Goodie Mob, the Atlanta based hip hop act, when Green was just 17. The two have remained close ever since. David Wild is a New York Times bestselling author, contributing editor to Rolling Stone, and an Emmy®nominated television writer and producer.

America’s Obsessives

The Everyday DASH Cookbook

The Compulsive Energy That Built a Nation

Over 150 Fresh and Delicious Recipes to Speed Weight Loss, Lower Blood Pressure, and Prevent Diabetes

Joshua Kendall

Marla Heller, MS, RD, with Rick Rodgers

From critically acclaimed author and award-winning journalist Joshua Kendall comes a mesmerizing look at the private obsessions and compulsions that drove seven American icons.

The New York Times bestselling DASH diet series gets even better with this collection of over 150 mouthwatering recipes.

When most of us think of Charles Lindbergh, we picture a mild-mannered, 25-year-old aviator stepping out of The Spirit of St. Louis after completing his solo flight across the Atlantic. What we don’t see is the boy who made detailed inventories of his toy soldiers. Sure, Lindbergh invented the pre-flight checklist, but his obsession with order also led him to demand that his wife and German mistresses account for all household expenditures in detailed ledgers. Like many of the icons that Joshua Kendall puts on the couch in his new book, Lindbergh is a uniquely American type—the obsessive. And based on his dogged archival research and extensive interviewing, Kendall also examines the inner lives of six other obsessive-compulsive personalities—Thomas Jefferson, H.J. Heinz, librarian Melvil Dewey, baseball slugger Ted Williams, sexologist Alfred Kinsey, and cosmetics entrepreneur Estée Lauder. America’s Obsessives is an anecdote-rich examination of the link between greatness and quirky behavior. ●●

Featuring previously unknown and scintillating information about giants in American history, AMERICA’S OBSESSIVES shows how the same mindsets that produce eccentric behavior can also lead to outstanding achievement.

A good diet is only as good as the food it provides in its plan. Now, bestselling author and foremost DASH expert Marla Heller, together with bestselling cookbook writer Rick Rodgers, makes it easy to prepare home-cooked meals that are fresh, fabulous, and DASH-approved. The DASH diet is a required medical recommendation for patients diagnosed with hypertension or pre-hypertension, a group of almost 130 million people. This ultimate guide to cooking the DASH way serves up everything necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle plus fast and delicious recipes, including Chicken Waldorf, ChiliSpiced Almonds, Grilled Peaches with Frozen Yogurt, and more. ●●

Books on fascinating Americans and what made them tick have become must-read bestsellers, as evidenced by Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs (Simon & Schuster, 2011) and Harold Evans’s They Made America (LB, 10/04).

Mo’ Meta Blues

Humboldt

The World According to ?uestlove

Hidden Lives on America’s Marijuana Frontier

Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson and Ben Greenman

Emily Brady

The beloved founder/drummer of The Roots and Jimmy Fallon’s bandleader teams up with The New Yorker’s Ben Greenman to write a psychedelic memoir with reflections on music, art, culture, and the book itself.

Like in Deborah Feldman’s Unorthodox and Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief, journalist Emily Brady journeys into a unique, secretive subculture—a place that marijuana built.

In this punch-drunk-on-culture memoir, Ahmir Thompson, better known as The Roots’ drummer ?uestlove, tells his own story while expounding on his vast and opinionated knowledge of music—from the greats, the lates, the fakes, the headliners, and the almost-weres—as well as important themes in black art and culture. His stories will be filtered through the eyes of one of our most recognizable cultural chameleons in Thompson’s passionate, stream of consciousness style. His book will reveal his own formative experiences, such as growing up in ’70s Philly with ’50s doo-wop singers as parents and finding his way through music, as well as random musings about his run-ins with celebrities and playing with some of his idols. MO’ META BLUES is a tripped-out amalgam of memoir, pop culture, black culture, white culture, and music, and, like its creator, is absolutely one-of-a-kind. ●●

Say the words “Humboldt County” to a stoner and you might receive a knowing grin. HUMBOLDT is a narrative exploration of  this famous and insular community in Northern California that has  existed primarily  on the cultivation and sale of marijuana for decades. It’s  a place where business is done with thick wads of cash and savings are buried in plastic pickle barrels in the backyard. In Humboldt County, marijuana supports everything from the fire department to the schools,  but it comes with a heavy price. As legalization looms, the community stands at a crossroads and its inhabitants are deeply split on the issue—some want to claim their rightful heritage as master growers, others want to continue reaping the inflated profits of the black market. Emily Brady spent a year living in this highly secretive community so that she could take readers inside this virtually unknown world of eccentric characters that is undergoing a radical transformation while teetering on the edge of legality.

Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson is ubiquitous: The Roots are a Grammy ® Award-winning hip hop band, as well as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and Thompson has graced the covers of Billboard, Vibe, XXL, and Remix, among other national music magazines. He has collaborated with the biggest names in the music industry and has more than two million Twitter followers. Thompson is known and beloved by many different groups of people. Not only is he physically recognizable for his signature afro and pick, but he is heavily involved in TV, music, social media, print media, radio, and live performances, and production. His name is well known and deeply respected by many in a multitude of circles.

The legalization of marijuana has become a constant and controversial topic. Seventeen states plus Washington, DC, have authorized medical marijuana and 14 states have rolled back penalties for possession. In November 2012, Colorado’s Amendment 64 will have a statewide vote and if passed, Colorado will become the first state to legalize and regulate the personal use of marijuana. American subcultures are favorites among readers and television viewers alike. Whether it’s Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief (Random House, 1998) or A&E’s Hoarders and Storage Wars, and TLC’s NY Ink, the fascination with unusual Americans and their communities have become mainstream. Emily Brady was born and raised in Northern California. She has written extensively for the New York Times. Her writing has also appeared in The Village Voice, Time, Columbia Journalism Review, and Plenty.

From the proprietor and chef of Brooklyn’s No Bake Makery comes an original cookbook filled with recipes for delicious, mini desserts that don’t require an oven.

There is no rule that says heartbreak must be a prerequisite for good judgment. If you don’t want to be a divorce statistic and are ready for a long-lasting relationship, this book’s for you. In today’s divorce culture, too many people have stopped trusting their ability to build a loving and lasting marriage. Chana Levitan reveals the 10 essential questions everyone should ask before saying “I do.” Readers will learn how to: spot long-term potential • know the difference between infatuation and love—how they work against each other and yet how they can work together • reevaluate their approach to love and what they really need to succeed in building a loving marriage • gain the confidence to steer through the decision making process of dating • and more. Filled with real-life anecdotes and insightful advice, I ONLY WANT TO GET MARRIED ONCE helps readers get it right the first time. (FINAL COVER TO COME) ●●

There is a proven market for books that offer advice before marriage. I ONLY WANT TO GET MARRIED ONCE will appeal to the readers who made bestsellers of Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married (Northfield Publishing, 2010), The Hard Questions (Tarcher, 2007), and The Good Marriage (GCP, 10/96).

Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first. It’s a great idea in theory, but who has time to preheat the oven, grease the baking sheet, measure out precise ingredient quantities, and wait for their treats to cool before frosting and devouring them? Growing up in a big Cuban family, Cristina Suarez Krumsick always had an appreciation for food, but as she got older, she realized that what she really likes most is feeding the people dear to her. How can someone confined to a tiny New York City kitchen spread so much love? Now, Cristina has made dessert faster, easier—and oven-free! With bite-sized truffles, clodhoppers, barks, fudges, bars, cold treats, puddings, candy, and even mini pies, cookies, and cakes, NO BAKE MAKERY features recipes for no-fuss treats that will surely impress in taste and presentation. From the Cinni Minni to the Cherry Bomb, and the Mintamelon Pop to the Coconilla Pie, there is something yummy for everyone in this book! ●●

In addition, the author is a publicist at a major publishing house with her own list of media contacts.

(Random House, 2008), and Hello, Cupcake! (Houghton Mifflin, 2008).

The Stench of Honolulu

Downfall

A Tropical Adventure

Jeff Abbott

Jack Handey

Jack Handey, the legendary author of Deep Thoughts and contributor to The New Yorker, delivers his very first novel—a hilariously absurd and far-flung adventure tale.

The stunning new Sam Capra thriller from New York Times bestselling author Jeff Abbott.

Expanding upon his tried-and-true short form of surrealistic bursts, Jack Handey crafts a full-length adventure tale with laugh-out-loud twists and unforgettable characters. A reliably unreliable narrator and his friend, a guy named Don, embark on a quest for the Golden Monkey, which takes them into the mysterious and stinky foreign land of Honolulu. There, they meet untold dangers, confront strange natives, and discover the ruins of ancient civilizations. As our narrator says, “The ruins were impressive. But like so many civilizations, they forgot the rule that might have saved them: Don’t let vines grow all over you.” ●●

Ex-CIA agent Sam Capra is back. When a beautiful woman whispers “help me” to him in his San Francisco bar, Sam suddenly finds himself fighting to save both her life and his own. Pursued by both the police and by a secret network of phenomenally successful men and women who owe their wealth and power to a mysterious Faustian deal, Sam must bring down the most dangerous enemy of them all: a man who owns the people who run the world. ●●

Jack Handey’s first novel is the book his fans have been waiting for—a longer, more in-depth delve into his brilliant, hilarious mind, complete with his signature absurdist style. ●●

The author’s bestselling books include Deep Thoughts (Hyperion, 1992) and its two sequels, Fuzzy Memories (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 1996), and What I’d Say to the Martians: And Other Veiled Threats (Hyperion, 2008). His writing for Saturday Night Live (including Toonces the Driving Cat) is known worldwide. Handey has won two Emmy® Awards and a Writers Guild of America Award, and his humor pieces have been published in The New Yorker, Playboy, and National Lampoon. Handey’s quotations recently appeared in his own line of American Greetings cards.

The Girls of August Anne Rivers Siddons

From New York Times bestselling author Anne Rivers Siddons comes a new novel about four best friends whose lives are forever changed by the events of one summer.

Every August, four women would gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year. The ritual began when they were in their twenties and their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. Their only criteria was oceanfront and isolation, their only desire to strengthen their far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the Girls dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt. Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they decide to come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast. There, far from civilization, the women make startling discoveries that will change them in ways they never expected. ●●

Russians

Alan Siegel and Irene Etzkorn

The People Behind the Power Gregory Feifer

Two highly regarded communications experts show you how to conquer complexity and bring clarity to business, government, and daily life.

This incisive portrait of a nation draws on personal stories to portray the forces that have shaped the Russian character for centuries and continue to do so today.

For decades, Alan Siegel and Irene Etzkorn have championed simplicity as a competitive advantage and a consumer right. Consulting with businesses and organizations around the world to streamline products, services, processes, and communications, they have achieved dramatic results. SIMPLE shows us how having empathy, striving for clarity, distilling your message, and simplifying experiences can reduce the distance between company and customer, hospital and patient, government and citizen. Siegel and Etzkorn illustrate their points by examining the best and worst practices of an array of organizations big and small, including the Cleveland Clinic, the IRS, Google, Philips, Trader Joe’s, Chubb Insurance, and ING Direct, among others. Simplicity is explored as a mindset, a design aesthetic, a writing technique, a business benefit, and a consumer right.   SIMPLE exposes the overly complex things we encounter every day, reveals the reasons why complexity persists, inspires us to seek clarity, and explores how social media is empowering consumers to demand simplicity. ●● (FINAL COVER TO COME)

For over four decades, Alan Siegel and Irene Eztkorn’s brand consultancy, Siegel+Gale, has been at the forefront of positioning global companies for competitive success. Now, they bring their immense knowledge and ideas to the general public. As books like The Power of Habit (Random House, 2012) and Made to Stick (Random House, 2007) have shown, readers remain hungry for big ideas that will help them succeed in business and daily life.

In RUSSIANS, Gregory Feifer explains the seeming paradoxes of Russian life by unraveling the nature of its people: what is it in their history, their desires, and their conception of themselves that makes them baffling to the West? Using the insights of his years as a journalist in Russia, Feifer corrects pervasive misconceptions about the country by showing that much of what appears inexplicable is actually logical when seen from the inside. He gets to the heart of why the world’s leading energy producer continues to exasperate many in the international community. And he makes clear why President Vladimir Putin remains popular even as the gap widens between the super-rich and the great majority of poor. Drawing on his family history as well as formative experiences in Russia’s past and illustrative workings of its culture, Feifer sheds much-needed light on the purposely hidden functioning of its society before, during, and after communism. RUSSIANS is an expertly observed, gripping profile of a people who will continue to challenge the West for the foreseeable future. ●● (FINAL COVER TO COME)

RUSSIANS is the real Russia, as told by Russians themselves. It goes beyond the headlines by profiling native Russians from all social spheres, revealing the realities of daily Russian life as it is actually lived. Gregory Feifer is a senior correspondent for Radio Free Europe and also writes for Foreign Affairs and The New Republic. A native Russian speaker, he was National Public Radio’s Moscow correspondent and has reported from Russia for almost a decade. He is the author of The Great Gamble (HarperCollins, 2009), a history of the Soviet war in Afghanistan, and co-author of Spy Handler (Basic Books, 2005) with former KGB colonel Victor Cherkashin.

Denial

Rising Tide

The Door to the Human Mind

Bear Bryant, Joe Namath, and Dixie’s Last Quarter

Ajit Varki and Danny Brower

Randy Roberts and Ed Krzemienski

From two acclaimed scientists comes a book that turns our understanding of human evolution on its head.

A fascinating look at how Bear Bryant, coach of the University of Alabama, and Joe Namath, his star quarterback, transformed college football into a truly national pastime.

Between 1961 and 1965, some of the bloodiest years of the civil rights movement, Bear Bryant and Joe Namath joined forces at the University of Alabama and dramatically changed the game of college football. Their final contest together, the 1965 Orange Bowl, was the first nationally broadcast, prime time college football bowl game, and it signaled a new era for the sport. Based on exclusive interviews with Namath and more than a hundred teammates, coaches, players, politicians, and others, RISING TIDE is a gripping account of how these two very different men—Bryant a legendary coach in the South who was facing humiliation over a pair of ethics scandals that threatened everything he had built, and Namath, a cocky Northerner from a hardscrabble steel mill town in Pennsylvania—led the Crimson Tide to a national championship during a time of bitter unrest, securing their places in sports history and changing the culture and economics of football forever. ●●

In the tradition of Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, and Stephen Hawking, Varki and Brower present a radical new scientific theory that will engage and challenge the experts, while writing in a style that is accessible and appealing to all. Instead of looking at what makes humans more sophisticated, Brower and Varki explore what has been holding all other species back. Their resulting theories will revolutionize the field.

Ajit Varki is a physician-scientist who currently holds several positions, including Distinguished Professor of Medicine and Cellular and Molecular Medicine, at the University of California, San Diego. Before he passed away in 2007, Danny Brower was Professor and Chair of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

RISING TIDE not only explains how college football became the extremely popular sport it is today, but examines its often forgotten role in the civil rights movement in America. The authors had direct access to Joe Namath, P.W. Bryant, Jr. (Bear Bryant’s son), and hundreds of other individuals connected to this story. Much has been written about Joe Namath and Bear Bryant, but this chapter in their careers and lives has never been given the full attention it deserves—until now. Randy Roberts is Distinguished Professor of History at Purdue University and the author of A Team for America: The Army-Navy Game That Rallied a Nation (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2011) and Joe Louis: Hard Times Man (Yale University Press, 2010). Ed Krzemienski is a historian of sports and popular culture. Born and raised in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania (Namath’s hometown), he has maintained close contact with Joe Namath and the Namath family. Krzemienski served as a consultant for HBO’s Emmy® awardwinning documentary, Breaking the Huddle: The Integration of College Football. He also served as a consultant on HBO’s acclaimed documentary on Namath. An expert on college football, he has written on the subject for numerous publications, including ESPN’s College Football Encyclopedia.

TIMOTHY BERG

At a chance meeting in 2005, Danny Brower posed an unusual idea to Ajit Varki that explained the origins of human uniqueness in a revolutionary way. Haunted by this encounter, Varki tried years later to contact Brower, only to find he had died unexpectedly. Inspired by an unfinished manuscript Brower left behind, DENIAL represents a unique collaboration that integrates Varki’s own knowledge on human origins, to explain what sets us apart from other animal species: our ability to fully understand the minds of others. This single evolutionary leap, they argue, required crossing a psychological barrier: giving us the uniquely human ability to deny reality in the face of inarguable evidence—including the willful ignorance of our own inevitable deaths. However, our unique instinct for denial will also be our undoing, if we continue to disregard the consequences of unrealistic approaches to everything from personal health to financial risk-taking to climate change. Only in understanding this radical new idea can we hope to tackle many vexing issues facing us today, and to imagine where our species might go from here.

Randy Roberts lives in Lafayette, Indiana. Ed Krzemienski lives in Muncie, Indiana.

The Defining Decade

They Eat Puppies, Don’t They?

Why Your Twenties Matter—and How to Make the Most of Them Now

A Novel

Meg Jay, PhD

Christopher Buckley

Meg Jay, PhD, weaves the latest science of the twentysomething years with behind-closeddoors stories from twentysomethings themselves to reveal why our 20s are the most transformative years of our adult lives. Updated, and with a new foreword by the author.

Preeminent satirist Christopher Buckley’s “hilarious and page-turning story of political absurdity worthy of Dr. Strangelove himself” (The Daily Beast) is now in paperback.

In an attempt to gain congressional approval for a top-secret weapons system, Washington lobbyist “Bird” McIntyre teams up with sexy, outspoken neocon Angel Templeton to pit the American public against the Chinese. When Bird fails to uncover an authentic reason to slander the nation, he and Angel put the Washington media machine to work, spreading a rumor that the Chinese secret service is working to assassinate the Dalai Lama. Meanwhile in China, mild-mannered President Fa Mengyao, and his devoted aide Gang are maneuvering desperately against sinister party hard-liners Minister Lo and General Han. Now Fa and Gang must convince the world that the People’s Republic is not out to kill the Dalai Lama. As things unravel in China, on the home front, Bird and Angel’s lie comes dangerously close to reality. And as their relationship rises to a new level, so do mounting tensions between the United States and China.

Our “30-is-the-new-20” culture tells us the twentysomething years don’t matter. Some say they are an extended adolescence. Others call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist who specializes in young adult development, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood. Drawing from more than 10 years of work with hundreds of twentysomething clients and students, Dr. Jay shares what psychologists, sociologists, neurologists, human resources executives, and reproductive specialists know about the unique power of the twentysomething years and how they shape our lives. The result is a provocative read that shows how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity, and even the brain can change more during this decade than at any other time in adulthood—if we use the time wisely. ●●

Albert of Adelaide

Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails

A Novel

A Memoir

Howard L. Anderson

Anthony Swofford

“If Larry McMurtry had written The Wind in the Willows, he might have come up with something almost as wonderful and moving.” —Mary Doria Russell, New York Times bestselling author of Doc

“Swofford shares brutally honest stories about his family, random sex, hard drinking and his difficult relationship with his father, as he tries to cope with life and post-traumatic stress.” —Huffington Post

At once an old-fashioned-buddy-novel-shoot-’em-up and a work of deliciously imagined fantasy, ALBERT OF ADELAIDE is the haunting story of a world where something has gone horribly awry. Having escaped from Australia’s Adelaide Zoo, an orphaned platypus named Albert embarks on a journey through the outback in search of “Old Australia,” a rumored land of liberty, promise, and peace. What he will find there, however, away from the safe confinement of his enclosure for the first time since his earliest memories, proves to be a good deal more than he anticipated. Encountering a motley assortment of characters along the way—a pair of invariably drunk bandicoots, a militia of kangaroos, hordes of the mercurial dingoes, and a former prize-fighting Tasmanian devil—our unlikely hero will discover a strength and skill for survival he never suspected he possessed. But, as Albert learns, it is often the unexpected route, and the most improbable companions, that lead us on the path to who we really are.

With the same unremitting intensity he brought to his first memoir, Jarhead, Anthony Swofford describes his search for identity, meaning, and a reconciliation with his dying father in the years after he returned from serving as a sniper in the Marines. Consumed by drugs, drinking, expensive cars, and women, Swofford lost almost everything and everyone that mattered to him. When a son is in trouble he hopes to turn to his greatest source of wisdom and support: his father. But Swofford and his father didn’t exactly have that kind of relationship. The key, he realized, was to confront the man—a philandering, once hard-drinking, now terminally ill Vietnam vet he had struggled hard to understand and even harder to love. Elegantly weaving his family’s past with his own present, Swofford casts a courageous, insistent eye on both his father and himself in order to make sense of what his military service meant, and to decide, after nearly ending it, what his life can and should become as a man, a veteran, and a father.

I, Michael Bennett

The Forgotten

James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

David Baldacci

Detective Michael Bennett hunts a master criminal who is terrorizing New York—and targeting his 10 children.

The second novel in David Baldacci’s new blockbuster series featuring John Puller is now in paperback.

Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous South American crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett’s lifelong friend Hughie McDonough dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City— and to get revenge on Michael Bennett. To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his 10 kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, on a much-needed vacation to upstate New York. But instead of escaping the violence, it follows them, and they find themselves in the middle of a nightmare that threatens the entire family. The danger isn’t only coming from the crime lord’s killers—federal prosecutor Tara McLellan arrives, and Bennett’s attraction to her endangers his relationship with Mary Catherine. A no-holds-barred, pedal-to-the-floor, action-packed novel, I, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most personal and most thrilling best. ●●

But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller’s father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.  What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt’s death was no accident…and that Paradise may hide a conspiracy so shocking that some will go to unthinkable lengths to make sure the truth is never revealed.

It all begins with a call to the police. A sixteen-year-old boy, Roger Eriksson, has gone missing in the town of Västerås. A search  is organized and a group of young scouts makes an awful discovery in a marsh: Roger is dead. Meanwhile, Sebastian Bergman, psychologist, criminal profiler, and one of Sweden’s top experts on serial killers, is in Västerås to settle his mother’s estate following her death. Sebastian has withdrawn from police work after the death of his wife and daughter in the 2004 tsunami. When the Crime Investigation Department  asks Sebastian for his help on Roger’s case, his arrogant manner at first alienates the rest of the team. Pushing forward, though, they begin to make disturbing discoveries about Roger’s past....

After Camelot

No One Ever Told Us That

A Personal History of the Kennedy Family—1968 to the Present

Money and Life Letters to My Grandchildren

J. Randy Taraborrelli

John D. Spooner

Now in paperback, an engrossing and revealing portrait of the next generation of Kennedys from the New York Times bestselling author of Jackie, Ethel, Joan.

“John Spooner is smarter about money and about life than almost anyone I know. As a blessing for all our grandchildren, he has written down what he has learned.” —Shelly Lazarus, Chairman, Ogilvy & Mather

For more than half a century, Americans have been captivated by the Kennedys—their joy and heartbreak, tragedy and triumph, the dark side and the remarkable achievements. In this ambitious and sweeping account, J. Randy Taraborrelli continues the family chronicle begun with his bestselling Jackie, Ethel, Joan and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the years “after Camelot.” He describes the challenges Bobby’s children faced as they grew into adulthood; Eunice and Sargent Shriver’s remarkable philanthropic work; the emotional turmoil Jackie faced after JFK’s murder and the complexities of her eventual marriage to Aristotle Onassis; the sudden death of JFK, Jr; and the stoicism and grace of his sister Caroline. He also brings into clear focus the complex and intriguing story of Edward “Teddy” Kennedy and shows how he influenced the sensibilities of the next generation and challenged them to uphold the Kennedy name. Based on extensive research, including hundreds of exclusive interviews, AFTER CAMELOT captures the wealth, glamour, and fortitude for which the Kennedys are so well known.

Riding the Bus with My Sister

Mystery Writers of America Presents The Mystery Box

Rachel Simon

edited by Brad Meltzer

From Rachel Simon, the New York Times bestselling author of The Story of Beautiful Girl, comes her beloved, bestselling memoir.

A collection of thriller short stories from some of today’s top mystery writers—selected by #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer.

There’s nothing more mysterious than a locked box. Whether it’s a literal strongbox, an empty coffin, the inner workings of a scientist’s mind, or an underground prison cell, there are those who will use any means necessary to unlock the secrets of…THE MYSTERY BOX. With this anthology, bestselling author Brad Meltzer introduces 21 original stories from today’s most prominent mystery writers. In Laura Lippman’s “Waco 1982,” a young reporter stuck with a seemingly mundane assignment on lostand-found boxes unwittingly discovers a dark crime. In Joseph Finder’s “Heirloom,” a scheming neighbor frightens the new couple on the block with an unnerving tale of buried treasure. In R.L. Stine’s “High Stakes,” a man on his honeymoon gets drawn into a bizarre bet involving a coffin—a bet he may pay for with his life. From the foothills of Mount Fuji to Georgia’s Okefenokee Swamp, from a physics laboratory in wartime Leipzig to an unusual fitness club in Boca Raton, these sometimes terrifying, sometimes funny, and always suspenseful tales will keep you riveted to the page.

Beth is a spirited woman with an intellectual disability who spends nearly every day riding the bus in her Pennsylvania city. The drivers, a lively group, are her mentors; her fellow passengers are her community. Beth, who lives independently and has a boyfriend, is a joyful, endearing, and feisty individual. Her single sister, Rachel, a writer and professor, masks her emotional isolation and loneliness behind her hyperbusy schedule. When Beth asks Rachel to accompany her on the bus for one year, they take a transcendent journey that changes Rachel’s life in incredible ways, leads her to accept her sister at long last—and teaches her to slow down and enjoy the ride. ●●

RIDING THE BUS WITH MY SISTER was published in Houghton Mifflin hardcover in 2002 and Plume trade paperback in 2003. It hit the Denver Post bestseller list and has been selected several times for the One Book, One Community reads and school reading lists.

James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

from Nicholas Sparks

Once in a lifetime a writer puts it all together. This is James Patterson’s best book.

For 36 years, James Patterson has written unputdownable, pulse-racing novels. Now he has written a book that surpasses all of them. All over the world, brutal attacks by animals are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence ahead becomes terrifyingly clear. With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it’s too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide. With wildly inventive imagination and white-knuckle suspense that rival Stephen King at his very best, James Patterson’s ZOO is an epic, nonstop thrill ride from “one of the best of the best” (Time).

Since finishing law school, Detective ash rashid wants nothing more than to bide his time waiting for an open position in the Prosecutor’s Office. That changes, though, when he hears that the mother of one of his daughter’s friends was murdered in front of her home—a crime that members of his department would seemingly rather ignore than investigate. ash launches an inquiry and quickly becomes entangled in a case involving a dangerous mix of election-year politics, crime, and street justice. if ash doesn’t solve the murder soon, his hit-and-run victim may not be the only one to die….

ash rashid is a former homicide detective who can’t stand the thought of handling another death investigation. in another year, he’ll be out of the department completely. That’s the plan, at least, until his niece’s body is found in the guest home of one of his city’s most wealthy citizens. The coroner calls it an overdose, but the facts don’t add up. against orders, ash begins an investigation to find his niece’s murderer—but the longer he searches, the more entangled he becomes in a case that hits increasingly close to home. if he doesn’t solve it fast, his niece won’t be the only family member he has to bury.

THE ABBEY is the first novel in the series featuring Ash Rashid, a Muslim-American,

Six Weeks to OMG

Adulting

Get Skinnier Than All Your Friends

How to Become a Grown-up in 387 Easy(ish) Steps

Venice A. Fulton

Kelly Williams Brown

The New York Times bestselling diet book is now available in paperback.

A smart, funny guide to becoming a real adult—the kind who buys toilet paper in bulk and knows when to write a thank-you note.

Did you know that: You can skip breakfast. Cold baths can give you a hot body. Black coffee helps speed weight loss. Small, frequent meals damage the body. Some fruits block fat loss. Broccoli can be worse than soda.

“Adult” isn’t a noun, it’s a verb. Or so posits Kelly Williams Brown in this delightful book. ADULTING is an incredibly wise, absurdly relatable, totally hilarious guide to all the things that young adults think that they should know already—but don’t. Kelly offers simple, effective, actionable tips that put her readers on the path to feeling like a real person. How can a busy person learn more about the world? Listen to NPR while getting ready in the morning. What should someone check for when renting a new apartment? Not just the nearby bars, but the faucets and stove, among other things. Will making a Facebook status about your break up help you to feel better? Oh girl, no. With Kelly’s guidance, the scary, confusing “real world” becomes approachable, manageable… even conquerable? What really sets ADULTING apart from other domesticity and lifestyle guides is Kelly’s voice. Whether comparing the passivity of house plants to Katie Holmes or explaining the perils of financial recklessness by admitting to having her debit card declined at a Popeye’s Chicken and Waffles, Kelly will delight and resonate with aspiring grown-ups of all ages.

SIX WEEKS TO OMG is a groundbreaking, counterintuitive system that uses a precise mix of nutrition, biochemistry, genetics, and psychology to produce amazing results. Authoritative, clearly written, and entertaining, the book combines fresh, proven, cutting-edge strategies to help anyone get thin and healthy—fast! ●●

Rather Outspoken

The Woman He Loved Before

My Life in the News

Dorothy Koomson

Dan Rather with Digby Diehl

Now in paperback, the compelling New York Times bestselling memoir from one of the most influential journalists of our time—Dan Rather.

A gripping new novel from Dorothy Koomson, the bestselling author of The Ice Cream Girls.

For half a century, Dan Rather has covered the major news stories of our era: the civil rights movement, the assassination of JFK, Vietnam, Watergate, 9-11, Iraq, Afghanistan, Abu Ghraib, and more. For 24 of those years, he was the network “face” of TV journalism as the anchor of the CBS Evening News. But at the end of his tenure, Dan became part of the news himself. Now, in RATHER OUTSPOKEN, he looks back on his entire career, from his boyhood in Houston, Texas, through his coverage of every U.S. president since Eisenhower, to his successful return to investigative reporting on Dan Rather Reports for Mark Cuban’s HDNet. He also makes an eloquent case for the critical importance of a free and independent press as a check on political power, and its responsibility to be the voice of the people, to force government to be fair, reasonable, and democratic. ●●

Libby has a nice life with a great job, a gorgeous husband, and a big home by the sea. But she’s becoming more unsure of Jack’s feelings for her, and finds herself wondering if he’s really over the mysterious death of Eve, his first wife. After a near-fatal car accident, Libby decides to find out all she can about the man she hastily married and the seemingly perfect Eve. It is not long before Libby stumbles across some startling truths about Eve. And, as she begins to unearth more and more devastating secrets, Libby fears that she too will end up like the woman Jack loved before her. ●●

In hardcover, RATHER OUTSPOKEN was an instant New York Times bestseller and has sold more than 89,000 copies to date. Prior to his departure from CBS News, Dan Rather had served one of the longest tenures of any evening news anchor. He has also been a regular correspondent on CBS’s 60 Minutes and is currently the managing editor and anchor of Dan Rather Reports on the cable channel AXS TV. Rather has received virtually every honor in broadcast journalism, including numerous Emmy® and Peabody Awards. He is also the author or co-author of seven books, four of which have become New York Times bestsellers, including Deadlines & Datelines (Morrow, 1999).

Dorothy Koomson’s previous novel, The Ice Cream Girls (GCP 4/12), received praise from Cosmopolitan and such bestselling authors as Kimberla Lawson Roby and Antoinette van Heugten. It hit the Sunday Times (UK) top 10 chart and remained on the list for four weeks.  As in a Jodi Picoult novel, provocative issues form the core of the story and hook readers in from the very first page. The author’s themes of marriage, love, and “the other woman,” in addition to her suspenseful plot and strong characters, will make THE WOMAN HE LOVED BEFORE a popular pick for book clubs. Though Koomson began her career writing light-hearted women’s fiction, her novels have taken on a darker tone, pushing her into the mainstream market of bestselling authors Sophie Hannah, Alice Sebold, and Emma Donoghue.

Praise for Dorothy Koomson:

Man Made

This Is How It Ends

In Which a Dad Learns to be a Man for His Son

A Novel

Joel Stein

Kathleen MacMahon

“Feels like what might’ve happened if you’d sent Woody Allen to write George Plimpton’s Paper Lion....In between all the comedy, the book is often a perceptive account of how men relate to each other and a surprisingly tender story about the love that exists between fathers and sons.”

“Enthralling…THIS IS HOW IT ENDS features marvelous characters who will linger long in readers hearts.” —Library Journal (starred review)

—San Francisco Chronicle

This is when it begins: Fall 2008. This is where it begins: The coast of Dublin, Ireland. This is why it begins: Bruno, an American, has come to Ireland to search for his roots. Addie, an out-of-work architect, is recovering from heartbreak while taking care of her infirm father. When their worlds collide, they experience a connection unlike any they’ve previously felt, but soon a tragedy will test them— and their newfound love—in ways they never imagined possible. This is how it ends….A story you will never forget.

The smudge looked suspiciously penis-like. The doctor confirmed: “That’s the baby’s penis!” which caused not celebration, but panic in soon-to-be father and Time magazine columnist Joel Stein. Joel pictured having to go camping and fix a car and use a hammer and throw a football and watch professionals throw footballs and figure out whether to be sad or happy about the results of said football throwing. So begins his quest to confront his effete nature whether he likes it or not (he doesn’t), by doing a 24-hour shift with LA firefighters, going hunting, rebuilding a house, driving a Lamborghini, enduring three days of boot camp with the U.S. Army, daytrading with $100,000, and going into the ring with UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture. Seeking help from a panel of experts, including his manly father-in-law, Boy Scouts, former NFL star Warren Sapp, former MLB All-Star Shawn Green, Adam Carolla, and a pit bull named Hercules, he expects to learn that masculinity is defined not by the size of his muscles but by the size of his heart (also, technically, a muscle). This is not at all what he learns.

Uprooted from Shanghai with her father and twin brother, young Cassandra finds the Black Isle’s bustling, immigrantfilled seaport, swampy jungle, and grand rubber plantations a sharp contrast to the city of her childhood. And she soon makes another discovery: the Black Isle is swarming with ghosts. Haunted and lonely, Cassandra at first tries to ignore her ability to see the restless apparitions that drift down the street and crouch in cold corners at school. Yet despite her struggles with these spirits, Cassandra comes to love her troubled new home. And soon, she attracts the notice of a dangerously charismatic man. Even as she becomes a fearless young woman, the Isle’s dark forces won’t let her go. War is looming, and Cassandra wonders if her unique gift might be her beloved island’s only chance for salvation…. Taking readers from the 1920s through the Japanese occupation during World War II to the Isle’s radical transformation into a gleaming cosmopolitan city, THE BLACK ISLE is a sweeping epic—a deeply imagined, fiercely original tale from a vibrant new voice in fiction.

NYPD Red is a special task force charged with protecting the interests of Manhattan’s wealthiest and most powerful citizens. When a world-famous movie producer is poisoned on the first day of a Manhattan film festival, they are the first ones called. Then an actor is killed on the set of a film. And a Molotov cocktail explodes at a movie premiere. Detective First Grade Zach Jordan and his new partner—and ex-girlfriend—Detective Kylie MacDonald are assigned to the case. The killer has every murder, every escape, planned down to the last detail—and he’s scripted an explosive finale that will bring New York and Hollywood to its knees. With largerthan-life action, relentless speed, and white-knuckle twists, NYPD RED is a mega-blockbuster from “The Man Who Can’t Miss” (Time).

The Black Box Michael Connelly

LAPD Detective Harry Bosch confronts the city’s and his own haunted past in #1 bestselling author Michael Connelly’s 25th book—now in paperback. In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the LA riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch’s ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the “black box,” the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together. Riveting and relentlessly paced, THE BLACK BOX leads Harry Bosch, “one of the greats of crime fiction” (New York Daily News), into one of his most fraught and perilous cases. ●●

The Middlesteins

At First Sight

Jami Attenberg

Nicholas Sparks

“THE MIDDLESTEINS had me from its very first pages, but it wasn’t until its final pages that I fully appreciated the range of Attenberg’s sympathy and the artistry of her storytelling.”

Now reissued with a new cover, Nicholas Sparks’s deeply moving, New York Times bestselling novel of heartbreak and surprise.

—Jonathan Franzen

Jami Attenberg’s breakout novel about the loves and obsessions of a Midwestern family on the brink of tremendous change is now in trade paperback. For more than 30 years, Edie and Richard Middlestein shared a solid family life: two children and a nice house in the Chicago suburbs. But things are splintering apart, for one reason, it seems: Edie’s fixated on food—thinking about it, eating it, and if she doesn’t stop, she won’t have much longer to live. When Richard abandons his wife, it is up to their distant daughter, Robin, their easy-going son, Benny, and their perfectionist daughter-in-law, Rachelle, to save Edie’s life. Do Edie’s devastating choices rest on her shoulders alone, or are others at fault, too? Written with pitch-perfect prose, huge compassion, and sly humor, THE MIDDLESTEINS is an epic story of marriage, family, and obsession.

There are a few things that Jeremy Marsh was sure he’d never do: he’d never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds and sets off a chain of events that will forever change the course of this young couple’s marriage. Dramatic, heartbreaking and surprising, this is a story about the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child. More than that, it is a story that beautifully portrays how the same emotion that can break your heart is also the one that will ultimately heal it. ●●

Valley of Ashes

Alex Cross, Run

Cornelia Read

James Patterson

“Smart and surprising....Riveting and devastating.”

Kill Alex Cross was “Patterson at the top of his game” (Washington Post). ALEX CROSS, RUN is even better.

—Laura Lippman

Detective Alex Cross arrests renowned plastic surgeon Elijah Creem for sleeping with teenage girls. Now, his life ruined, Creem is out of jail, and he’s made sure that no one will recognize him—by giving himself a new face. A young woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window, and Alex is called to the scene. The victim recently gave birth, but the baby is nowhere to be found. Before Alex can begin searching for the missing newborn and killer, he’s called to investigate a second crime. When a third body is discovered, rumors of three serial killers send Washington, DC, into an allout frenzy. Alex is too focused on the cases to notice that someone has been watching him—and will stop at nothing until he’s dead. With white-hot speed, relentless drama, and hairpin turns, ALEX CROSS, RUN is James Patterson’s ultimate thrill ride.

Madeline Dare trades New York’s gritty streets for the treelined avenues of Boulder, Colorado, when her husband Dean lands a promising job. Madeline, now a mother to beautiful toddler twin girls and a full-time homemaker, has achieved everything she thought she always wanted, but with her husband constantly on the road, she’s fighting a losing battle against the Betty Friedan riptide of suburban/maternal exhaustion, angst, and sheer loneliness. A new freelance newspaper gig helps her get her mojo back, but Boulder isn’t nearly as tranquil as it seems: there’s a serial arsonist at large in the city. As Madeline closes in on the culprit, the fires turn deadly—and the stakes tragically personal. She’ll need every ounce of strength and courage she has to keep the flames from reaching her own doorstep, threatening all she holds most dear. ●●

This Is How You Die

The House of Tides

Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death

Hannah Richell

Edited by Ryan North, Matthew Bennardo, and David Malki !

The follow-up anthology to the surprise bestseller Machine of Death is a collection of neverbefore-published stories revolving around a machine that predicts how you will die.

A sweeping and resonant novel about a British family’s long-held secrets, for readers of Rosamunde Pilcher’s The Shell Seekers and the lushly set novels of Kate Morton.

The Tides are a family with many secrets. Haunted by the events of one tragic day a decade ago, they are each, in their own way, struggling to move forward with their lives. There is Dora, the family’s youngest daughter, who lives in a ramshackle London warehouse with her artist boyfriend. She is doing a good job of skating across the surface of her life, but when she discovers she is pregnant, she finds herself staring back at the darkness of a long-held guilt. Dora’s mother, Helen, is a complicated woman whose relationship with her family has always been turbulent, while her father, Richard,  has cobbled together a life that  bears little resemblance to his boyhood dreams. And Cassie, Dora’s longestranged sister, has cut off her family entirely, it seems. When Dora arrives at Clifftops, her family’s rambling home on the Dorset coast, it seems that Helen might finally be ready to make amends for her own part in the tragedy. But what Dora soon discovers is that the path to redemption does not rest solely with her mother. Can family crimes this damaging ever really be forgiven?

The machines started popping up around the world. The offer was tempting: with a simple blood test, anyone could know how they would die. But the machines didn’t give dates or specific circumstances—just a single word or phrase. DROWNED, CANCER, OLD AGE, CHOKED ON A HANDFUL OF POPCORN. And though the predictions were always accurate, they were also often frustratingly vague. OLD AGE, it turned out, could mean either dying of natural causes, or being shot by an elderly, bedridden man in a botched home invasion. The machines held onto that oldworld sense of irony in death: you can know how it’s going to happen, but you’ll still be surprised when it does. This addictive anthology—sinister, witty, existential, and fascinating—collects the best of the thousands of story submissions the editors received in the wake of the success of the first volume—and exceeds the first in every way.

Written in the bestselling tradition of Daphne du Maurier, Anita Shreve, and Kate Morton, this is a rich and compelling family drama with a dark thread of suspense at its heart. When THE HOUSE OF TIDES was originally published in the UK as Secrets of the Tides, Reader’s Digest praised it as “a forceful debut… the revelations of what happened, and the burden of guilt the Tides carry, are powerfully evoked in a classy melodrama with very wellrealized characters.” THE HOUSE OF TIDES inspired a heated auction in the UK, and rights have already been sold in 15 other countries.

Books of Adam

Twelve Patients

The Blunder Years

Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital

Adam Ellis

Eric Manheimer, MD

From popular blogger and artist Adam Ellis comes a hilarious collection of stories about his attempt to become a responsible adult, and the bizarre situations he encounters along the way.

“Captivating samplings of one doctor’s tour of duty inside the country’s oldest and perhaps most illustrious public hospital.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Adam Ellis knew it was time to leave art school when a fellow student presented her final project to the class: “I put a condom on the Virgin Mary,” she announced, unveiling a cheap figurine sheathed in latex. The professor loved it. Baffled by the praise his classmate receives, and intent on becoming an artist on his own terms, Adam plots his escape to Portland, Oregon, to begin his life in the real world—only to realize that adulthood is a lot harder than it looks. Based on his blog of the same name, BOOKS OF ADAM details Ellis’s hilarious trials and tribulations in his attempt to become a functioning member of society. From his run in with the law after shoplifting a bottle of chocolate milk to a misguided attempt to make friends that lands him in a shack with a hippie couple who skin rabbits and try to entice him into a ménage a trois, Adam is a sympathetic guy who can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble. Paired with his signature black-and-white illustrations, Ellis’s stories weave together an uproariously funny and ultimately  charming narrative about a young man trying to find his place in the world. ●●

In a testament to his marketing savvy, Ellis’s Books of Adam fan base has grown with the addition of three merchandising outlets available through his blog. The apparel and portrait stores have allowed Ellis to establish a brand, and his fan base has proven that they are eager to buy Books of Adam products.

TWELVE PATIENTS breaks new ground in revealing the connection between medical diseases and societal issues such as immigration, gang violence, income disparity, mental illness, and teenage depression. Eric Manheimer, MD, was the medical director at Bellevue Hospital from 1997 to 2012 and is a clinical professor at the New York University School of Medicine. He contributes to the New York Times Op-Ed page on healthcare issues. In TWELVE PATIENTS, the author reveals that he is not just a doctor, but also a patient. After being diagnosed with throat cancer, Dr. Manheimer journeys through the medical system from top to bottom and takes readers along on a tour of the shadowland between life and death. Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-4555-0388-9, 7/12

“Manheimer offers far more than remarkable medical dramas: he blends each patient’s personal experiences with their social implications….Perhaps the most moving tale of all is Manheimer’s own—as a cancer patient, he learns far more about despair and hope than most physicians can imagine.” —Publishers Weekly

A rising star in the blogosphere, Adam Ellis’s blog site, Books of Adam, attracts more than 1.4 million visitors. He also has a large following on Facebook and Twitter, and a strong presence on Reddit, Tumblr, and other content-sharing sites.

Bellevue is famous for its psych ward, but it’s much more than that. It is the largest public hospital in New York City, and the doctors there treat everyone from the bluebloods of Park Avenue to the illegal Fukinese immigrants huddled in Chinatown’s tenements. If a cop gets shot, the first choice is often Bellevue’s emergency room. If a diplomat gets attacked at the United Nations, he or she gets taken to Bellevue. The hospital also operates a clinic for victims of torture as well as a secure facility to treat the inmates of Rikers Island. In its way, Bellevue is a microcosm of the world and a bellwether for the toughest issues in our country. In TWELVE PATIENTS, Dr. Eric Manheimer, the hospital’s former medical director, uses stories taken from case histories to humanize hot-button issues like immigration, obesity, teen suicide, and the cost of health care. Each chapter is its own self-contained medical drama in which the vital signs are just the beginning of a patient’s story.

The Panther Nelson DeMille

John Corey and Kate Mayfield are back in the latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille.

Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana’a, Yemen—one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he’s wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders—and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a deadly game, John and Kate don’t know the rules, the players, or the score. What they do know is that there is more to their assignment than meets the eye—and that the hunters are about to become the hunted. Filled with breathtaking plot turns and told in John Corey’s inimitable voice, THE PANTHER is a brilliant depiction of one of the most treacherous countries in the world and raises disturbing questions about whether we can ever know who our enemies—or our allies—really are. ●●

Growing up poor and largely abandoned on the streets of 1920s Chicago, Anna Finnegan has struggled her entire life. Until a talent manager discovers her and brings her into the world of theater. Now, years later, she’s about to start shooting her first movie. Arriving on location in Redstone, Texas, in 1932, Anna steps off the train and collides into Dalton Barnes. He’s lived in Redstone all his life and hates how the big city out-of-towners are gawking at the small-town locals like him. It doesn’t take long, though, for Anna and Dalton to discover fireworks of a different sort between them. But the movie is plagued by one trouble after another, including a fire that destroys an elaborate set and costumes ruined by huge splashes of paint. Who is sabotaging the film and why? To what lengths will they go? When Anna finds herself threatened, how will she—along with the love blossoming between she and Dalton—survive?

Tie in to JAMES PATTERSON’s Alex Cross, Run— with the two books that started it all!

The Exceptions David Cristofano

The follow-up to the critically acclaimed The Girl She Used to Be, the explosive story of a young mafioso and the beautiful blonde who will change his life, is now in paperback.

No loose ends. It’s the Bovaro family motto. As part of the Bovaro clan, one of the most powerful and respected families in organized crime, Jonathan knows what he must do: take out Melody Grace McCartney, the woman whose testimony can lock up his father and disgrace his entire family. The only problem: he can’t bring himself to do it. Had Jonathan kept his silence, Melody and her parents would never have entered into the Witness Protection Program. So he keeps her safe by vowing to clean up his own mess while acting as her shield. But as he watches her take on another new identity in yet another new town, becoming a beautiful but broken woman, Jonathan can’t get her out of his mind...or his heart. From the streets of Little Italy to a refuge that promises a fresh start, Jonathan will be forced to choose between the life he’s always known, the destiny his family has carved out for him, and a future unlike anything he’s ever imagined. ●●

Slow Surrender Cecilia Tan

In the vein of 50 Shades of Grey, Cecilia Tan delivers a steamy erotic romance about a young woman finding sexual fulfillment through a mysterious, wealthy businessman.

James is teaching Karina to be the perfect submissive and sexual plaything through a series of ever-escalating scenes. She exults in this treatment, the thrill of the game pushing aside any doubts she has about the lifestyle or the mysterious man she is with. She trusts him, needs him, and soon falls in love with him. Disaster strikes when she learns his secret identity, causing him to pull away form her. Cutting off all contact with her just before the two of them attend a kinky masked ball, Karina is determined to hold onto their budding relationship. She has more invested than just kink, and she suspects he does, too. But when she uses all that he’s taught her to lure him back in, he struggles to maintain his own composure. ●●

Erotic romance has dominated the top of the bestseller lists since the publication of E.L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. To date, the trilogy has sold more than 10 million copies. In addition to E.L. James’s trilogy, erotic romance is climbing e-tailer and print bestseller lists across the country, as evidenced by Sylvia Day’s Bared to You (Berkley, 2012) and Maya Banks’s Sweet Addiction (Berkley, 2012). Though erotic romances are very hot in content, the cover packaging is classy and mainstream. SLOW SURRENDER will feature the same style as the New York Times bestselling books of E.L. James and Sylvia Day. Cecilia Tan is the author of the Magic University erotic fantasy novels, Mind Games (Ravenous, 2009), and Black Feathers (Harper Perennial, 1998), among other books. She has edited more than 50 anthologies of erotica, and her short fiction has appeared in Ms. Magazine, Asimov’s Science Fiction, and Best American Erotica, among other publications.
