Ben Winters, The Quiet Boy
(Mulholland)

“Winters has proved himself to be one of our most fascinating genre blenders of crime and speculative fiction, a writer who never fails to challenge his readers to embrace new ideas and new forms of reality. A wonderful, thoughtful book.”
Booklist

The-First-Day-of-Spring-199x300.jpeg

Nancy Tucker, The First Day of Spring
(Riverhead)

“A stunning debut…Suspenseful? You bet. Heart-rending? From beginning to end.”
The Washington Post

dead-souls-199x300.jpg

Sam Riviere, Dead Souls
(Catapult)

“Mordant, torrential, incantatory, Bolano-esque, Perec-ian, and just so explosively written that I had to stop and shake the language-shrapnel from my hair and wipe it off my eyeglasses so I could keep reading.”
Jonathan Lethem

vanishing-point-193x300.jpg

Elizabeth Brundage, The Vanishing Point
(Little Brown)

“An ambitious, literary novel, The Vanishing Point is distinguished by its characterizations, its pervasive air of melancholy, and its beautiful style. Not surprisingly, there is a great deal of thought-provoking attention given to the meaning and aesthetics of photography, and, like great photography, the novel is ultimately a work of memorable art.”
Booklist

proof-of-life-199x300.jpg

Daniel Levin, Proof of Life: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East
(Algonquin)

“Adroitly navigating myriad cultures, linguistic barriers, and dangerous situations, Levin shows that individuals can and do make a difference in the face of profound adversity. In laying bare the raw human toll of the ferocious and cruel Syrian conflict, Proof of Life asks the reader to make a choice between cynicism and compassion for Syria and for all those who continue to suffer.”
Ayaan Hirsi Ali

chasing-the-thrill-201x300.jpeg

Daniel Barbarisi, Chasing the Thrill: Obsession, Death, and Glory in America’s Most Extraordinary Treasure Hunt
(Knopf)

“Mesmerizing . . . Barbarisi’s narrative splendidly captures the timeless allure of buried treasure. Armchair adventurers will be riveted right up to the suspenseful conclusion.”
Booklist

goblin-197x300.jpeg

Josh Malerman, Goblin
(Del Ray)

“Malerman (Bird Box) tantalizes readers with this enigmatic linked collection of horror novellas. . . . The dark, fantastic tone will put readers in mind of Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes. This is must-read horror.”
Publishers Weekly

violence-against-women-190x300.jpg

Jacqueline Rose, Violence and Violence Against Women
(FSG)

“Rose, a lecturer in history at the University of St. Andrews, probes the causes, meaning, and persistence of sexual violence in this thought-provoking essay collection . . . A precise and original exploration of an essential subject.”
Publishers Weekly

door-behind-a-door-221x300.jpg

Yelena Moscowitz, A Door Behind a Door
(Two Dollar Radio)

“Moskovich (Virtuoso) mystifies with this vivid story of a pair of estranged siblings who immigrated to Milwaukee from the Soviet Union as children in 1991… The dynamic style and psychological depth make this an engaging mind bender.”
Publishers Weekly

independent-bones-194x300.jpg

Carolyn Haines, Independent Bones
(Minotaur)

“Cozy fans attuned to the #MeToo movement may want to check this one out.”
Publishers Weekly
