A MArker to MeAsure Drift
This haunting book is as disturbing as it is achingly beautiful. It is the story of Jacqueline, a young refugee from Liberia, who is living in abject poverty and self-imposed exile in a Greek resort town. As we learn—little by little—the unimaginable horrors she has born witness to, we begin to understand why she has chosen numbness over rejoining society. And as she struggles to reconnect with someone and faces the inevitability of revisiting her past, the reader can find some hope in the resilience of the human spirit. A remarkable and eviscerating novel.

the exeCution of noA p. singleton:
the Crypt thief:
A Hugo Marston Novel
I was one of the millions fascinated by the media coverage of the Amanda Knox trial. But, while my sympathy was piqued by her story, the same cannot be said for the character of Noa P. Singleton. This young woman on death row is wholly unsympathetic and utterly fascinating. She tells her story through flashbacks but that, of course, does not present a complete picture. Letters written to the victim by her mother also drive the narrative in this compellingly dark story filled with twists, turns, and more than one jaw-dropping moment. These two fiery women will leave you questioning your own convictions about guilt, innocence, and capital punishment.

After The Bookseller, I was immediately taken with Hugo Marston’s flawless detective skills and couldn’t wait for the next adventure. This time it’s a twisted grave robber . . . and a killer. It’s summer in Paris and two tourists have been killed in front of Jim Morrison’s grave. The killer leaves the bodies untouched but moves deeper into the cemetery, where he breaks into the crypt of a long-dead Moulin Rouge dancer. In a bizarre twist, he disappears into the night with part of her skeleton. At first, Hugo is stumped. How does this killer operate unseen? And why is he stealing the bones of once-famous can-can girls?

Janet Evanovich, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, has teamed up with Lee Goldberg, bestselling author and television writer for Monk, to create an exciting new series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase. Get ready for The Heist!
FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication to chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals, and putting them behind bars. While Kate has made quite a name for herself, for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox— an international crook she wants in more ways than one. Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now, he does it for the thrill. He knows the FBI has been hot on his trail—particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman . . . even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems like he’s been captured for good, Nick pulls off his greatest con of all: he convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with special agent Kate O’Hare.
