“A crackling-good read, smart and emotionally satisfying.” —Los Angeles Times “Connelly is one of the best contemporary writers of crime fiction, and in THE REVERSAL he’s at the top of his form.”—St. Petersburg Times “Plot, nuance, characters, dialogue—as usual, Connelly delivers it all, and —BookPage brilliantly.” “Reading this book is like watching a master craftsman, slowly and carefully, brick by brick, build something that holds together exquisitely, form and function in perfect alignment.”

Bosch and Haller team up. Defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murderer. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch. Together, Bosch and Haller set off on a case fraught with political and personal danger. Opposing them is Jessup, now out on bail, a defense attorney who excels at manipulating the media, and a runaway eyewitness reluctant to testify after so many years. With the odds and the evidence against them, Bosch and Haller must nail a sadistic killer once and for all. If Bosch is sure of anything, it is that Jessup plans to kill again.

After eliminating some of the most dangerous aliens on planet Earth, Daniel X, Alien Hunter, is ready to raise the stakes. He travels to Tokyo to hunt down numbers six AND seven on the List of Alien Outlaws, criminals who control the world of video games, and therefore control millions of kids’ minds around the world! But Daniel is in for a surprise as he tracks down this technological twosome. They’re hunting him right back! Even worse, he’s never seen powers like theirs before. These aliens can break down into billions of tiny pieces and recreate themselves as whatever they want—just like Daniel. He has no choice but to turn to their son, Kildare, who needs Daniel’s friendship to help him stand up to his malicious parents. But can Daniel trust him? Or has the alien hunter finally met his match-es?

When her four-year-old daughter informs her that a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that “sick” man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won’t be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word. But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can’t be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it—at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, DC, to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society.

WW Moore is the author of the blockbuster bestseller Dude, Where’s My Country (GCP, 10/03), which rocketed to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, remaining there for 24 weeks. To date, it has sold over one million copies in hardcover and paperback combined.

category: Politics/Memoir

WW Stupid White Men (Regan, 2/02) was a #1 New York Times bestseller that remained on the list for over one year. It sold close to one million copies, and the British Book Awards named it “Book of the Year.”

publishing background: GCP hardcover AUTHOR’S HOME: Michigan Territories: World English

FINAL COVER TO COME

A sort of anti-memoir, Moore breaks the autobiographical mode while he hilariously presents 20 nonfiction short stories from his own life: one moment he’s an 11-year-old boy stuck on a Senate elevator with Bobby Kennedy, and the next moment he’s inside the Bitburg cemetery with a dazed and confused Ronald Reagan. And none of that even comes close to the night the friendly priest at the seminary decided to show him how to perform his own exorcism. All of this is the stuff that makes for great fiction—but every one of these stories is true and from the life of one Michael Moore, a son of Flint, Michigan, who became an iconic voice for American progressives everywhere. But before Michael Moore became the Oscar®-winning filmmaker and all-round rabble-rouser and thorn-in-the-side of corporate and right-wing America, there was the guy who had an uncanny knack for just showing up where history was being made. Like the night he was passing through Berlin and some crazies started chiseling on a very large wall. The next thing he knew he was on top of that wall, taunting soldiers who apparently thought he wasn’t worth wasting a bullet on. This audiobook is Moore’s most personal to date—and will be irresistible to fans and foes alike.

WW Michael Moore is the Academy Awardwinning director and producer of Sicko (2007), Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004), and Bowling for Columbine (2002), three of the top five highest-grossing documentaries of all time. Bowling for Columbine won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2003. Sicko was nominated for the same award in 2008 and was hailed by the New York Times as “Moore’s funniest film to date.”

FINAL COVER TO COME

The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those thoughts trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many people often feel controlled by emotions. So many lives would be much improved if people controlled their emotions, instead of the other way around. In LIVING BEYOND YOUR FEELINGS, Joyce Meyer blends the wisdom of the Bible with the latest psychological research and discusses: • The four personality types and their influence on one’s outlook • The impact of stress on physical and emotional health • The power of memories • The influence of words on emotions • The power of replacing reactions with pro-actions • The benefits of happiness • and more. Joyce wants listeners to live beyond emotions, make their own choices, and regain control of their lives.

FINAL COVER TO COME

Roger Ebert has been reviewing films for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967. The first film critic ever to win a Pulitzer Prize, he has been a fixture on television for over 30 years, co-hosting Siskel & Ebert at the Movies until Gene Siskel’s death in 1999, and then with Richard Roper until 2006. Then, complications from thyroid-cancer treatment resulted in the loss of his ability to eat, drink, or speak. But with the loss of his voice, Ebert has only become a more prolific and influential writer. And now, for the first time, he tells the full, dramatic story of his life and career. He chronicles his loves, losses, and obsessions; his recovery from alcoholism, his marriage, his politics, and his spiritual beliefs. He also provides details about his colorful newspaper friends, his friendships with Oprah Winfrey, Studs Terkel, and others, insights into numerous movie stars, and his perspective on such influential directors as Ingmar Bergman, Martin Scorsese, and Werner Herzog.

Many years have passed since civilization’s brush with apocalypse. The world’s greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity. Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a cryptic vellum. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life; when decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love. But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition and greed at terrible risk.

FINALCOVER COVERTO TOCOME COME FINAL

“Here’s the story of a lovely lady.” Carol Brady, the character Florence Henderson played on the perennially popular sitcom The Brady Bunch, was the perfect mother—the kind of mother Henderson always wished that she herself had had. Henderson’s background could not have been more unlike the innocent suburban idyll The Brady Bunch portrayed. Raised by an abusive, alcoholic father after her mother fled home when she was just 12, Henderson sustained the hope that she would somehow, someday escape her harsh and impoverished Midwestern upbringing. In her memoir, Henderson chroncles her success on Broadway and on television. She also speaks frankly of the crippling postpartum crisis that followed the birth of her first child, the depression that dogged her even when she was a top Broadway star, the string of unsatisfying love affairs, and the relentless pressure she felt to maintain the facade of the ideal wife and mother. An honest audiobook, it is also an inspiring one, as Henderson finds unexpected fulfillment in her second marriage—and discovers life’s miraculous power to heal and renew.

 Henderson is host of her own Emmy®-nominated TV show, The Florence Henderson Show, which airs on RLTV and was a contestant on Season 11 of the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars in 2010.

FINAL COVER TO COME

The first new audiobook of essays by Christopher Hitchens since 2004, ARGUABLY offers an indispensable key to understanding the passionate and skeptical spirit of one of our most dazzling writers, widely admired for the clarity of his style, a result of his disciplined and candid thinking. Topics range from ruminations on why Charles Dickens was among the best of writers and the worst of men to the haunting science fiction of J.G. Ballard; from the enduring legacies of Thomas Jefferson and George Orwell to the persistent agonies of anti-Semitism and jihad. Hitchens even looks at the recent financial crisis and argues for the enduring relevance of Karl Marx. The audiobook forms a bridge between the two parallel enterprises of culture and politics. It reveals how politics justifies itself by culture, and how the latter prompts the former. In this fashion, ARGUABLY burnishes Christopher Hitchens’s credentials as—to quote Christopher Buckley—our “greatest living essayist in the English language.” ALSO Available IN AUDIO From CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS: Hitch-22

The power of glitzy advertising and elaborate marketing campaigns is on the wane; word-ofmouth referrals are what drive business today. People trust the recommendation of a friend, family member, colleague, or even a stranger with similar tastes over anything thrust at them by a faceless company. Most business owners believe that whether customers refer them is entirely out of their hands. But science shows that people can’t help recommending products and services to their friends—it’s an instinct wired deep in the brain. And smart businesses can tap into that hardwired desire. Marketing expert John Jantsch offers practical techniques for harnessing the power of referrals to ensure a steady flow of new customers. This practical, smart, and original guide is essential for any company looking to grow without a fat marketing budget.

In 2002, Seth Godin asked a simple question that turned the business world upside down: What do Starbucks and JetBlue and Apple have that other companies don’t? How did they confound critics and achieve spectacular growth? Godin showed that the traditional Ps that marketers had used for decades to get their products noticed—pricing, promotion, publicity, and packaging—weren’t working anymore. Marketers were ignoring the most important P of all: the Purple Cow. Cows, after you’ve seen one or two or ten, are boring. A Purple Cow, though...now that would be something. Every day, consumers ignore a lot of brown cows, but you can bet they won’t ignore a Purple Cow. Purple Cow launched a movement to create products and services that are worth marketing in the first place. Now this expanded edition includes dozens of new examples from readers and listeners who’ve taken the message to heart.

Now middle-aged, they’ve taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they imagined…and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their world. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who once gave them shelter, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made, and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.

WW With well over 50 million copies of his books in print worldwide and an astonishing nine #1 New York Times bestsellers to his credit, the demand for Sparks’s audiobooks is stronger than ever.

I won an Academy Award.* I won the Boston Marathon.** And I was knighted by the Queen of England.*** So I hope that you’ll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I’ve put together for you here. I think you’ll find I’ve left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I’m saying is, let us begin, shall we? *

AUTHOR’S HOME: Wyoming SETTING: Uganda and Washington, DC TERRITORIES: U.S., Canada, and Open Market

In northern Uganda, an American Special Forces team is wiped out by a group of normally peaceful farmers. Video of the attack shows even women and children possessing almost supernatural speed and strength, consumed with a rage that makes them immune to pain, fear, and all but the most devastating injuries. Covert-One’s top operative, Army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith, is sent to investigate the attack and finds evidence of the parasitic infection. This time, though, it’s different. The infection is purposely being kept alive and the director of Iranian Intelligence is in Uganda trying to make a deal for a biological weapon to unleash on the West. As Smith and his team are cut off from all outside support, they begin to suspect that forces much more powerful than the Iranians are in play—forces that can be traced to Washington itself.

FINAL COVER TO COME

True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job title. Being chosen for a leadership position is just a first step toward becoming a respected and effective leader. To rise beyond merely being “the boss”—somebody people only follow because they have to—one must be dedicated to helping others. To create an effective and motivated team, a leader must also commit to achieving results. But to master leadership requires an investment in developing the ability of others to also grow into achievers and leaders in their own right. Based on the topic he’s most often asked to speak about in countries around the world and by Fortune 100 companies, bestselling author John C. Maxwell explains how great leaders grow themselves and their organizations. Informative and entertaining, this audiobook is essential listening for any man or woman who’s aiming at leadership success.

 Maxwell’s previous books have appeared on the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and Christian Booksellers Association bestseller lists.  Maxwell speaks to over 350,000 people each year and has communicated his principles to Fortune 500 companies, the United States Military Academy at West Point, international marketing organizations, the NCAA, and professional sports groups such as the NFL.

FINAL COVER TO COME

Reading the Gospels without knowing the personality of Jesus is like watching television with the sound turned off. The result is a dry, two-dimensional person doing strange, undecipherable things. Without Jesus’ tone of voice, what was in his eyes, the lift of an eyebrow, a suppressed smile, we misinterpret a great deal of what we find there. In BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW, John Eldredge breaks Jesus out of the typical stereotypes, just as he set masculinity free in his book, Wild at Heart. By recovering the humanity of Jesus, readers are welcomed into the rich emotional life of Christ. All of the remarkable qualities of Jesus burst like fireworks with color and brilliance because of his humanity. Eldredge goes on to show listeners how they can experience this Jesus in their lives every day. This book will quicken listeners’ worship, and deepen their intimacy with Jesus.

 John is the founder and president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own heart in His love, and learn to live in His Kingdom.

FINAL COVER TO COME

Wondering if science could explain how he survived his 40-year avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne had his entire DNA mapped in 2010. The “Full Ozzy Genome” contained variants that scientists had never before encountered and the findings were presented at the prestigious TEDMED Conference in San Diego. The Sunday Times of London appointed Ozzy its star health advice columnist, arguing that his multiple near-death experiences, 40-year history of drug abuse, and extreme hypochondria qualified him more than any other for the job. The column was an overnight hit, and was quickly picked up by Rolling Stone to give it an audience of millions. Part humor, part memoir, and part bad advice, TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY finds Ozzy answering readers’ (and celebrities’) questions with his outrageous wit and surprising wisdom, digging deep into his past to tell memoir-style survival stories never published before—as well as supplying charts, sidebars, recipes, and guidance that no sane human being should follow.

AUTHOR’S HOME: New York TERRITORIES: World

In studying the leaders who’ve had the greatest influence in the world, Simon Sinek discovered that they all think, act, and communicate in the exact same way—and it’s the complete opposite of what everyone else does. Sinek calls this powerful idea the Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY. Any organization can explain what it does; some can explain how they do it; but very few can clearly articulate why. WHY is not money or profit—those are always results. Why does an organization exist? Why does it do the things it does? Why do customers really buy from one company or another? Why are people loyal to some leaders, but not others? Drawing on a wide range of real-life stories, Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire. This audio book is for anyone who wants to inspire others or who wants to find someone to inspire them.

 Sinek’s premise is that the most important thing a leader can do is to figure out why their company or organization exists and why that should be meaningful to customers and others in society. .

AUThOr’S hOmeS: New York, London, Lebanon TerriTOrieS: World

THE BED OF PROCRUSTES takes its title from Greek mythology: the story of a man who made his visitors fit his bed to perfection by either stretching them or cutting their limbs. It represents Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s view of modern civilization’s hubristic side effects—modifying humans to satisfy technology, blaming reality for not fitting economic models, inventing diseases to sell drugs, defining intelligence as what can be tested in a classroom, and convincing people that employment is not slavery. Playful and irreverent, these aphorisms will surprise listeners by exposing self-delusions they have been living with but never recognized. With a rare combination of pointed wit and potent wisdom, Taleb plows through human illusions, contrasting the classical values of courage, elegance, and erudition against the modern diseases of nerdiness, philistinism, and phoniness.

W Nassim Nicholas Taleb has devoted his life to immersing himself in problems of luck, randomness, human error, probability, and the philosophy of knowledge. He managed to transform his interests into three successful careers, as a man of letters, businessman-trader-risk manager, and university professor.
