Everything is about to change. The government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now kids are disappearing. For 15 yearold Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upsidedown when they are hauled out of bed one night, separated from their parents, and thrown into a secret compound for no apparent reason. It’s clear that the new government will stop at nothing to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. While imprisoned together, Wisty and Whit start exhibiting strange abilities and powers they never knew they possessed. Their new talents lead them to believe that maybe there is a reason they were singled out. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents—and maybe the world? 2

No one knows why Dr. Lara Mallory came back home to Eden Pass, Texas, to open up her medical practice after all these years. But everyone remembers her role in the well-publicized scandal that caused the downfall of White House hopeful Senator Clark Tackett. So when the ironfisted matriarch of Tackett Oil uses every weapon in her arsenal to drive her out of town, Lara refuses to go quietly. Yet in this corruption-riddled town, nothing is as it seems. An explosive secret lurks beneath the surface, threatening Lara at every turn. Her unlikely ally: Key, the hell-raising youngest Tackett son. Thrown together, they’re on a dangerous quest to expose the one secret that can destroy the Tackett empire—and anyone who dares to challenge its power.

It is the fall of 1951 and the Korean War is raging. Twenty-six year-old Nicholai Hel has spent the last three years in solitary confinement at the hands of the Americans. Hel is a master of hodo korosu or “naked kill,” fluent in over six languages, and has honed extraordinary “proximity sense”—an extraawareness of the presence of danger. He has the skills to be the world’s most formidable assassin and now the CIA needs him. The Americans offer Hel freedom in exchange for one small service: go to Beijing and kill the Soviet Union’s Commissioner to China. It’s almost certainly a suicide mission, but Hel accepts. Now he must survive chaos, violence, suspicion, and betrayal while trying to achieve his ultimate goal of satori—the possibility of true understanding and harmony with the world.

by Crown in 1979, has sold more than 2.3 million copies. Thirty years later, Trevanian’s work has been translated into more than 14 languages and sold millions of copies throughout the world. SATORI is the prequel to this classic novel and will have instant appeal to not only Trevanian’s fans but to a whole new audience as well. ♦♦ Shibumi introduced the character Nicolai Hel, who never appeared in another book... until now. ♦♦ In the same way that Eric van Lustbader revitalized the Bourne franchise by writing as Robert Ludlum, critically acclaimed novelist Don Winslow will bring the Trevanian legacy to a new generation of readers and listeners. ♦♦ Don Winslow is the author of numerous books, including the recent New York Times bestseller, Savages (Simon & Schuster, 7/10), as well as The Power of the Dog (Knopf, 2005), and The Life and Death of Bobby Z (Knopf, 1997). ♦♦ Trevanian wrote several international bestsellers, including Shibumi, The Eiger Sanction, and The Summer of Katya. He died in 2005.

Tracy Waterhouse leads a quiet, ordered life as a retired police detective—a life that takes a surprising turn when she encounters Kelly Cross, a habitual offender, dragging a young child through town. Both appear miserable and better off without each other—or so decides Tracy, in a snap decision that surprises herself as much as Kelly. Suddenly burdened with a small child, Tracy soon learns her parental inexperience is actually the least of her problems, as much larger ones loom for her and her young charge. Meanwhile, former detective Jackson Brodie is embarking on a different sort of rescue—that of an abused dog. Dog in tow, Jackson is about to learn, along with Tracy, that no good deed goes unpunished.

He’s lived this long because he’s a man of rules and logic. For example, getting involved= a bad idea. But when he stumbles into a kidnapping in progress, he acts without even thinking about it. Before he can stop himself, he’s saved the daughter of the richest man in London. And clearly saving the girl=getting involved. Now, the equation of Petrovitch’s life is looking increasingly complex. Russian mobsters + Yakuza + something called the New Machine Jihad=one dead Petrovitch. But Petrovitch has a plan—he always has a plan—he’s just not sure it’s a good one.

After alleged serial killer Edgar Roy is apprehended and locked away in a mental facility, private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy’s lawyer—an old friend of Sean King—to look into the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins: while en route to their first meeting with the lawyer, King and Maxwell discover his dead body. A rash of terrifying events begins to unfold and it is up to King and Maxwell to uncover the truth: is Roy a killer or not? But the more they dig into his past, the more they are bombarded with obstacles, half-truths, and dead ends that make filtering the facts nearly impossible. As each new theory brings a new revelation, King and Maxwell will be pushed to the limit. Could this deadly case be the one that leaves the duo permanently parted?

Danny Hansen is a Bosnian immigrant who came to America to escape his haunted memories. A priest who lives by a strict moral code, he is incensed by those who do not abide by religious and legal law, and he believes it is his duty to show them the error of their ways, one body at a time. Vigilante? Perhaps. But most definitely a serial killer. The last thing Rynae Gilmore remembers is being rescued after her drug-dealer pimp attempted to murder her. She wakes up in a beautiful glass house with the man who saved her life, Lamont Myers. Lamont offers her protection and love, if she abides by his rules. A year later, Lamont is murdered and Rynae is compelled to seek revenge. At the same time, Danny has continued down his own path of retribution. In their individual pursuits, Danny and Rynae’s paths become entangled. And before long it becomes clear that neither of them may make it out of this hunt alive.

Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for taking away her home. Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too—and he’s certain he’s on the right trail. Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in. Connelly proves again why he “may very well be the best novelist working in the United States today” (San Francisco Chronicle).

But just 27 hours after welcoming their first child, Madeline, into the world, Liz suffered a massive pulmonary embolism and died instantly—without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited. Faced with devastating grief and the responsibilities of being a new and single father, Matt found solace by returning to the small blog he had created to keep friends and family updated on Liz’s pregnancy, which today has become a place for him to share with over a million curious readers the day-to-day story of two lives bound by loss and love. Heartbreaking and heartwarming, TWO KISSES FOR MADDY recounts an elegiac, ultimately uplifting story, punctuated by bittersweet—and often humorous—memories and anecdotes. This audiobook will resonate with any listener who has experienced grief, and has sought the courage to live again.

UNabr cd: ISBN: 978-1-60788-694-5 PRICE: $29.98/$35.98 Can. 7 CDs/8 hrs. 25 per carton category: Fiction publishing background: GCP hardcover AUTHOR’S HOME: Los Angeles, CA Territories: World

Despised by some, adored by many, Andrew Breitbart has quickly positioned himself as a lightning rod in the world of political hardball. Thanks to his network of conservative websites which are read by millions of Americans, Breitbart has zealously attempted to reveal the so-called “liberal bias” of the mainstream media in our country. Breitbart is perhaps best known for his coverage of the ACORN controversy—which attracted both praise from conservative media outlets as well as outrage from liberal ones. In RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION, Breitbart relates how he gradually became disenchanted with what he calls the “Democratic-Media complex.” He lays out his theories on how the American media became influenced by these liberal leanings, and why he and other conservatives feel that the time has come to let people know that too much of the news is being slanted. In short, Breitbart believes that, through their control of the media, liberals are allowed to frame their arguments in a way that keeps conservatives on the defensive. RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION details why this is a growing problem, and what our country needs to do to change it.

INDIGNATION will be published in GCP hardcover (978-0446-57870-7) in 4/11. ♦♦ Andrew Breibart is a major power player in the sphere of American conservative influence and opinion. He is the creator of an extensive network of blogs that include Breitbart.com, Breitbart.tv, Big Hollywood, Big Government, and Big Journalism, which launched in 12/09 with what was arguably one of the biggest stories of the year—the ACORN scandal. A former editor of the Drudge Report, he was a primary developer of the Huffington Post. ♦♦ Breibart’s no-holds-barred style and critical take on the liberal left will appeal to the same listeners who embraced Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Bill O’Reilly, and other top conservative opinion makers. ♦♦ Andrew Breitbart is a frequent guest on numerous national TV and radio shows, including Real Time with Bill Maher, Glenn Beck, Fox News, Laura Ingraham, and CSPAN.

Why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year’s Resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can’t people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial situation, and physical fitness?

A primer in success-building, THE MAGIC LADDER TO SUCCESS is Napoleon Hill’s compact distillation of his lifetime of learning. It is the volume in which Hill first distilled the 17 factors that make up his “Law of Success” philosophy. These key principles capture the ethics and actions that empower all who harness them to become leaders in the field of their choice. Leaders are not born, Hill argues, they are molded by a remarkably similar, simple, and dynamic set of habits. One of the audiobook’s most valuable features is the inspiring story of Hill’s upbringing in a desperately poor West Virginia mountain town, and how his father’s second wife, an educated woman “irritated at poverty,” instilled in him the laws of success that would change his life and millions of others.

was originally written in 1930, only one year after the Great Depression brought the nation to its knees. Long out of print, this revised edition is the perfect audiobook for this current era of economic uncertainty. ♦♦ THE MAGIC LADDER TO SUCCESS and Hill’s The Law of Success (1925) were the result of over 500 interviews with successful people and, even more importantly, interviews with many others who failed. It was after a few years of astounding success with these books that Hill was invited to become an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. ♦♦ Napoleon Hill was born in 1883 in a one-room cabin on the Pound River in Wise County, Virginia. He began his writing career at age 13 as a “mountain reporter” for small town newspapers and went on to become America’s most beloved motivational author. He passed away in November 1970 after a long and successful career writing, teaching, and lecturing about the principles of success.

There is a price behind each choice—individual, collective, or national—that we make. Whether we’re deciding to buy a cheeseburger, see a doctor, apply to college, or go to war, everything has its price. And Porter sets out to explore them all, seeking a broad understanding of how we set prices and how prices change our lives.

Throughout history, rich and poor countries alike have been lending, borrowing, crashing, and recovering their way through an extraordinary range of financial crises. Each time, the experts have chimed, “this time is different”—claiming that the old rules no longer apply and that the new situation bears little similarity to past disasters.

Covering 66 countries across five continents, THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT presents a comprehensive look at the varieties of financial crises, and guides us through eight astonishing centuries of government defaults, banking panics, and inflationary spikes. Leading economists Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff provocatively argue that financial combustions are universal rites of passage for market nations. The authors draw important lessons from history to show us how much—or how little—we have learned.
