We are pleased to bring you great new titles by some wonderful authors. Larwrence Block, Greg Rucka, and James Huston have been some of our top selling authors for years, and what could we possibly say about a new Chuck Palahnuik title except “stand back!” The Little Stranger, is the eagerly anticipated fifth novel by Sarah Waters.
Peter De Jonge steps out of James Patterson’s shadow with an edgy, electrifying, dark and riveting debut, Shadows Still Remain.
So the buzz has begun with the announcement that Dan Brown‘s The Lost Symbol is to be released on September 15th. With a mega first run of 5 million copies the publisher is pumping truckloads of money hyping this book, riding on what’s left of the Da Vinci Code success, right on the tail of the spring release of Angels and Demons the movie. We are not sure whether we will be able to offer signed copies of this title, but will certainly let you know when we do.

In Johnson‘s superb fifth contemporary mystery to feature Wyoming sheriff Walt Longmire (after 2008’s Another Man’s Moccasins), Walt has his doubts about Mary Barsad’s guilt when she confesses to shooting her husband, Wade, after Wade allegedly burned down their barn with all Mary’s horses inside. Even though the crime is out of his jurisdiction in a neighboring county, Walt can’t shake the feeling that there’s more to Mary’s story. Posing as an insurance agent, Walt starts poking around the tiny town of Absalom, whose main attraction are the fights at the local bar. He meets an illegal immigrant bartender with a knack for crime solving, the Barsads’ loyal cowhand and some ranchers who may have had their own reasons for wanting Wade dead. Walt digs deep into the dilapidated town’s history, unearthing secrets that might be better left buried. Series fans will delight in seeing Walt return to his cowboy roots as he mounts a horse and navigates the sparsely populated state. 8-city author tour. (June)
