Robert Harris

Suzanne Brockmann

Barclay returns with his latest novel of domestic suspense — a fiercely intelligent puzzler with twists leading to an ending even the most seasoned thriller reader won’t see coming!

Number one New York Times bestseller Lee Child follows up his triumphant 2010, when he reached top-of-the-list levels with number one thrillers 61 Hours and Worth Dying For. Before Reacher packed his toothbrush and started walking, before he became America’s most revered vigilante hero, there was a last case, a breaking point, a twist in Reacher’s own life that he never saw coming . . .

Despite the miles that separate them, two cases collide as FBI agents Maggie and Tully, and army colonel Platt uncover secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the remote Midwestern landscape.

This intensely suspenseful thriller from bestselling author Robert Harris is set at the nexus of high finance and sophisticated computer programming—a searing glimpse into an all too recognizable world of greed and fear, a novel that forces us to confront the deepest questions of what it means to be human.

Packed with pulse-pounding tales about everyone’s favorite special ops team, this suspenseful collection is a must-read for fans of The New York Times bestselling series, and is also the perfect introduction for newcomers.

Explosive Eighteen is the next in the series from the number one blockbuster bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

The Innocent

The Fallback Plan

Dean Koontz

Taylor Stevens

Leigh Stein

Enter the world of the Pendleton, a beautiful limestone palace converted into a set of highly desirable condominiums. Yet luck and the Pendleton have little in common—its years have been colored by madness, kidnappings, murder, and strange, inexplicable accidents. But all of that is in a past mostly unfamiliar to the people of the Pendleton. To them, their building is a sanctuary ....That is, until it turns on them.

Tautly written, brilliantly paced, and with the same evocation of the exotic combined with chilling violence that made The Informationist such a success, The Innocent confirms Taylor Stevens’s reputation as a thriller writer of the first rank.

A charming, smart and funny debut novel about the tricky period between college graduation and moving out of your parents house and into the adult world.

From the team of Anne McCaffrey and Nebula Award-winning author Elizabeth Ann Scarborough comes the sequel to Catalyst, featuring telepathic cats that are invaluable to the spacefarers who own them.

A kind of Brave New World reflecting the China of our times, The Fat Years is a complex novel of ideas that reveals all too chillingly the machinations of the postmodern totalitarian state, and sets in sharp relief the importance of remembering the past to protect the future.

At the beginning of Open City, Julius has just broken up with his girlfriend, and feeling adrift and alone, he sets out on a series of walks through the city. On these walks he encounters a number of people — both strangers and old acquaintances — who reveal stories about their own pasts, the history of New York, and its immigrants. Through these stories, Julius begins to probe deeper into his own past.

Sophie Kinsella

Matthew Pearl

Arthur Phillips

Ann Brashares

Jonathan Kellerman

First published in Egypt in 1948, and never before translated into English, The Mirage is a stunning example of Mahfouz’s psychological portraiture.

Number one New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella returns with her strongest stand-alone since Remember Me?, with a heroine who brings a whole new level of wit, intelligence, and romance to the social network.

On a fog-shrouded, moonless night in Boston Harbor, seven ships mysteriously crash in a massive, fiery wreck. As the harbor disaster is followed by more strange calamities striking the city, Marcus Mansfield and his fellow classmates will find themselves in the position of being the only people qualified to save the city and its inhabitants.

The main character of The Tragedy of Arthur is a young man struggling with the legacy of a larger-than-life father, a con artist capable of working wonders of deception. When Arthur’s father, imprisoned for decades — and nearing the end of his life — informs Arthur of a secret family legacy awaiting them in a bank vault, Arthur and his twin sister become the owners of an undiscovered play by William Shakespeare, titled The Tragedy of Arthur. It is either a great gift to literature and the world — or their father’s last great con.

Carmen, Tibby, Bridget, and Lena have been friends since they were born within three weeks of one another. They’ve grown up side by side, with a friendship so strong that it was a touchstone at the center of their lives even when all else failed. Now their story continues, years after we saw them last in Forever in Blue.

Despite the myriad of passionate enemies made while she was alive, when acidtongued Vita Berlin is discovered brutally murdered in her apartment, psychologist Alex Delaware doubts the grisly act was one of revenge.

In the bestselling tradition of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff and Tuesdays with Morrie, Enjoy Every Sandwich distills everything Lee learned about how we find meaning, purpose, and peace in our lives. Told with humor and heart, this deeply inspiring book will help readers embrace their humanity, accept uncertainty, and live a life of gratitude— whether they are facing the end now or not.

For Beginners titles have always demonstrated strong crossover appeal from academic to general trade, and enduring, steady backlist sales. Dante, one of the most widely assigned but difficult to understand writers in the Western canon is an ideally suited For Beginners subject.

What if disappointments, failures, heartaches—all the inevitable hardships of life— are seen for what they truly are: opportunities to overcome and rule over circumstances through relentless faith in God’s goodness and power? Drawing on his trademark fresh-and-revealing study of Scripture, John Bevere convincingly shows how great men and women—in Bible times and today—embrace the “hard places” in life and, as a result, develop a strong, relentless spirit.

Gabrielle Hamilton

New York Times bestselling author Sally Bedell Smith is known for her “ravishingly readable” and “impressively well researched” portraits of public figures, from the Clintons to the Kennedys to Princess Diana. Now, Smith explores in intimate detail the public and private life of the most prominent monarch of our time: Queen Elizabeth II.

A complete exploration of yoga philosophy, practice, and history from one of the most well-respected teachers in the West.

Magnificently unpredictable, frequently hilarious (and, surely, one of the most unusual books ever written about cinema), Zona is thoroughly enthralling and thought-provoking from first to last—even if you have not seen the film.

An in-depth and global look at the growing phenomenon of failure to launch—young people who return home —and what this means for family structures and the economy.

The story of the Volkswagen —German for the People’s Car—is a story about people. The author, a thirty-year-old American journalist who lives in Berlin, tells the story for a new generation in time for the relaunch of the new Beetle in late 2011.

This book follows Gabrielle Hamilton’s culinary education—from growing up in a food-centric rural home in New Jersey to the vagaries of finally opening her own restaurant in New York City.

Ending abuses of women and girls could change the game for human rights worldwide. This book sets out how and why we should make women’s lives matter.

Karen Abbott

Miyamoto Musashi

Rachel Maddow

Ryan O’Neal

Gypsy Rose Lee. A fascinating celebrity with a secret past, described by Life Magazine as “the only woman in the world with a public body and a private mind, both equally exciting.” Set against the provocative worlds of vaudeville and burlesque, at a time when America was coming of age, American Rose is a rich and powerful portrait of Rose as a fascinating entertainer — and the woman she was behind the curtain.

A new, delightfully readable translation of the classic manifesto on swordsmanship, strategy, and winning by the legendary samurai Miyamoto Musashi.

With wisdom and compassion, Chopra offers us the guidance and encouragement necessary to face adversity, transform obstacles into opportunities, and live a satisfying, enlightened life.

Speaking to us in the fiercely honest, witty, piercingly intelligent voice we know from her on-air commentary, Maddow shows how deeply militarized U.S. culture has become. Brilliant, lacerating, and provocative, Drift belongs on the shelf beside such bestsellers as What’s the Matter with Kansas?, Griftopia, and The Shock Doctrine.

No other public couple has drawn the same unwavering fascination than Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett, and Ryan O’Neal is the only person who can tell the true story behind the headlines. Past Imperfect, his first memoir, is everything their relationship was—exuberant, sad, and tawdry.

Michio Kaku Michio Kaku calls on his own expertise and his phenomenal contacts to construct a fascinating and detailed look at the future.

Diane Keaton

Suzanne Somers

Sam Bracken

Jai Pausch

Ben Macintyre

A book as touching, funny, and iconic as its author, Diane Keaton’s memoir is the story of an ordinary girl’s journey to becoming an extraordinary woman—and the defining relationship that made it all possible, with her mother.

Bestselling author, health pioneer, and the face of antiaging medicine, Suzanne Somers coaches readers on what she’s learned and how she lives so that they too can lead the second half of their lives at optimum prime.

Sam shares his heartbreaking story of growing up in an abusive, dysfunctional family in spare, powerful prose. Abandoned and homeless at age 15, Sam ultimately triumphed now teaching that anyone can radically change their life and can create positive, lasting change.

With advice woven artfully into a personal narrative, Dream On will resonate and appeal not only to the legions of readers who made The Last Lecture a phenomenal bestseller, but also to all those who have lost a loved one.

With the same depth of research and masterful narrative voice that have made Ben Macintyre an international bestseller, Double Cross is an engaging recreation of a deception so successful and with such far-reaching consequences that every other hoax of the war—including Operation Mincemeat—pales in significance.

Blending real-life stories, brain science, unique and engaging exercises, and highly practical takeaways, Genius will rapidly expand your brain power, sharpen your memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills, make you more creative, and improve your capacity to learn anything.

In this dazzlingly panoramic book, Patrick French chronicles India’s epic change, telling human stories to explain a larger national narrative. With a familiarity and insight he provides a vital corrective to the many outdated notions about a uniquely dynamic and consequential nation.

The United States is sailing in uncharted economic waters, and there is a great debate underway about what to do about it. The 4% Solution is a blueprint for restoring America to good economic health.

Nancy Mitford was witty, intelligent, acerbic, a great tease, and an acute observer of upper-class English idiosyncracies. Hastings has written a biography that is as superbly entertaining and clear-eyed as the unforgettable novels that are its subject’s lasting claim to fame.

Mezrich reconstructs the outlandish heist to steal moon rocks and the madcap story of genius, love, and duplicity that feuled it, in narrative that reads like a Hollywood thrill ride.

Steve Forbes

New material based on explosive interviews proves that the financial crisis was the heist of the century, the result of over 30 years of deregulation that enabled the financial sector to become a rogue industry, whose frequently criminal behavior poses a major danger to the American economy and political system.

Through narrative-driven reporting and vivid story-telling, Michael Casey explains the dysfunctional global economic system. Accounting the impact of global finance on the lives of ordinary people shows why we must understand and care about rigid misaligned exchange rates, currency wars, and the dangerous imbalance in the world’s savings and spending patterns.

In $100 Startup, Chris Guillebeau offers the 50 most valuable and interesting examples of micro-business success. In nearly all cases, people with no special skills discovered in their personal passions a usefulness that could be monetized. You don’t need an MBA, a business plan, or even employees. All you need is a product or service that flows from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid.

In a compelling book that will overturn our fundamental understanding of planning, strategy, and how organizations work, Duncan Watts, Columbia professor and principal scientist at Yahoo! Research, revelas why common sense breaks down —and what we can do about it.

Freedom Manifesto captures the spirit of the movement for limited government and gives it an intellectual foundation by articulating the moral concerns that are upsetting people across America and driving today’s dissatisfaction with big government.

Guber has yearned to grow as a crafter and deliverer of stories because he believes that stories have made all the difference in his career. Here he draws from experiences to explain why getting it right is the central determinant of success.

Negotiation is the key to all human interaction, but most of us are terrible at it. Getting More offers a powerful toolkit for how to get more of what you want in the real world.

Aoife Grayson’s time is growing shorter by the day. Her family is unique in the worst way—every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different.

Everything Aoife thought she knew about the world was a lie. She isn’t going to succumb to madness because of a latent strain—she will lose her faculties because she is allergic to iron. Aoife isn’t human. She is a changeling —half human and half from the land of Thorn. And time is running out for her.

Alone, Annah’s life doesn’t feel worth much more than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. And now she must decide: can she continue to live in a world drenched in the blood of the living, or is death the only way to save herself from the Return’s destruction?

Michelle Cooper combines the drama of pre-War Europe with the romance of debutante balls and gives us another compelling historical page turner.

When her mother is killed in a car accident, Michele Windsor has no choice but to move in with the wealthy grandparents in New York she’s never met. Disillusioned by their coldness, Michele retreats into her room, where she discovers her great-greataunt’s journal. Once she touches its pages, she finds herself hurtled back in time to the glamorous Gilded Age.

In a quest for independence, 18-year-old Bria signs up for a tour of Central America— the wrong one. Middle-aged tourists are hardly the key to self-discovery. So when Bria meets Rowan, she seizes the chance to ditch her group and join him off the beaten path. As they travel through Mayan villages and remote Belizean islands, they discover they’re both seeking to leave behind the old versions of themselves.

Long before the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency was established, a young Precious Ramotswe thought she might like to be a detective. The Great Cake Mystery is a gentle, warm, and rare look into the youth of one of fiction’s greatest detectives.

This stunning fantasy adventure novel, inspired by China’s most famous painting, Along the River at the Qing Ming Festival, tells the story of a friendship both tender and bold. CC’s remarkable journey reminds readers that though time moves on, art and love endure.
