Rule of the Bone: A Novel

Rule of the Bone: A Novel

In the tradition Huckleberry Finn and The Catcherin the Rye, Russell Banks’s quintessential novel of adisaffected homeless youth living on the edge of society “redefines theyoung modern anti-hero. . . . Rule of the Bone has its own culture andlanguage, and Bone is sure to become a beloved character for generations” (SanFrancisco Chronicle). Witha compelling, off-beat protagonist evocative of Holden Caulfield and QuentinColdwater, and a narrative voice that masterfully and naturally captures thenuances of a modern vernacular, Banks’s haunting and powerful novel is anindisputable—and unforgettable—modern classic.

In My Rearview Mirror: A Novel

Baby drama and political scandal don’t mix in this sequel to Suzetta Perkins’ Behind the Veil.

Margo Myles is getting ready to give birth to twins, but she isn’t sure who the father is—her soon to be ex-husband, Jefferson Myles, or her one-time fling, Malik Mason. Malik is running for a state senate seat and no one is going to take the sweet smell of victory from him.

Ivy Myles, Margo and Jefferson’s eldest daughter, is moving back home. She’s been estranged from her parents, but a new love calls her back—and her love is none other than Malik Mason. Malik intends to make Ivy his wife, but will she be a distraction on his way to the senate?

Underkill: An Allen Choice Novel

Underkill: An Allen Choice Novel

Edgy and as engrossing as Leonard Chang’s acclaimed debut crime novel Over the Shoulder, Underkill finds Korean American investigator Allen Choice on a case that becomes as much a personal journey as an exploration of murder and its harrowing consequences.

Two years have passed since Allen examined his late partner’s death in San Francisco, which eventually exposed secrets about the death of Allen’s immigrant father twenty years earlier, with the help of journalist and girlfriend Linda Maldonado. Now Allen follows Linda down to Los Angeles—and into the unfamiliar world of illegal raves and small-time drug dealers—to uncover the details of her brother’s unexpected and suspicious death, hoping to repair their deteriorating relati

Lost, But Making Good Time: A View from the Back Row of the Band

During his journey along life’s path, Ollie has taken detours and encountered more than a few obstacles, some of which he admits to having set in his own way. Although not presented as a prescription for anyone, Ollie’s account is filled with his cool, passionate, and clever observations that will entertain, challenge

Wedlocked: A Novel

Wedlocked: A Novel

On what should be the happiest day of her life, Rebecca Ross is panic stricken. Rebecca has just wed Craig Jacobs, but she realizes she put more thought into choosing her florist than she did in choosing the man she’s just pledged to love for the rest of her life.

Before Craig, Rebecca, a talented Long Island girl, dreamed of following in her grandmother’s footsteps with an acting career. Unfortunately, she was cut down to size by years of disappointment, and by her first love-a Hollywood director. She returned to Long Island a lost and broken woman, and ended up in the last place she ever wanted: her old bedroom at her parents’ house.

But Rebecca’s mother, an overzealous convert to Judaism, has a long held dream too

The Secret Pilgrim: A George Smiley Novel

The Secret Pilgrim: A George Smiley Novel

“There’s a price to pay, and the price does tend to be oneself.”

To the young trainees at Sarratt, George Smiley is “A Legend of the Service.” To Ned, however, he is something even more. Decades earlier—before a mole nearly destroyed the Circus and well before the Cold War yielded to glasnost—Smiley rescued Ned from disgrace and gently mentored him through a long and respectable career. Now, as he listens to Smiley address a new generation of spies, Ned ponders his own clandestine life, the unruly passions and personalities he’s encountered—and the doubts he’s kept locked away. Brilliantly charting the collision between global politics and individual frailties, The Secret Pilgrim is quintessential John le Carré

The Scorpions Sting: A Magdalena Lasige Novel

The Scorpions Sting: A Magdalena Lasige Novel

With all my degrees and knowledge, how could I have lived with my head in the sand for so long? I’m thinking of nicknaming myself ‘Ostrich’… head in the sand, backside flopping around in the air, going around in circles, tripping over my own long legs and awkward feet, never getting anywhere at all. It certainly seems an appropriate label, especially given the latest mess I’m now working my way through. Dr. Magdalena LaSige, a thirty-three-year-old criminal archepsychologist, throws herself headfirst into finding a kidnapped Carmelite nun the sister of her former professor, the handsome and wealthy Dr. Peter Janus. She is given ancient pictures and symbols sent from the kidnappers, clues in an archetypal trail of deceit. The Pyramids

“A TERRIFIC YARN . . . Marching to Valhalla is written as though it were a long-lost diary of Custer’s, leading up to his fatal battle. It is a very personal view.”
–Denver Post

In his New York Times bestselling novel Dances with Wolves, Michael Blake created an unforgettable saga of white and Native American cultures.
