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.

From the bestselling author of Carter Beats the Devil comes an elegant blend of reality and fiction, war drama and Hollywood glamour. Gold sets into motion his cameo-heavy, multipronged plot with a bizarre incident in winter 1916, when Charlie Chaplin is spotted simultaneously in 800 places across the country, causing mass hysteria and panic. The primary story line follows Chaplin’s struggles with women, creativity, film budgets and his opposition to the war. In a second, intersecting world, Leland Wheeler moves from the hinterlands to San Francisco with dreams of being a film star. He rechristens himself Leland Duncan, and though he gets shipped to the battlefields of France, the two ailing puppies he finds over there later provide his entrée to the movie biz. Finally, Hugo Black is a Detroit gentleman who volunteers for the infantry in an uncharacteristic whim and finds himself fighting in America’s secret invasion of Russia. The result is a dramatic narrative of chance and coincidence, and also a serious reconstruction of an evolving social landscape. It is wholly exhausting and entirely satisfying: to borrow an idea from Chaplin’s great personal-artistic quest in the book, it’s a work as good as Gold. (May)
