NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The long-awaited new novel from the bestselling, prize-winning author of Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks.
Winters is a master of genre-bending fiction, previously seen in Underground Airlines and Golden State. Here the central question is why Wesley Keener, accidently brain-injured in as a teenager, walks constantly in circles with no apparent awareness of his surroundings. Jay Shenk, his hapless but well-meaning lawyer, navigates the malpractice (and a decade later, murder) trials with the reluctant help of his son, slowly revealing the much bigger issues that have far-reaching potentials

From the bestselling author of Fatherland and Munich comes a WWII thriller about a German rocket engineer, a former actress turned British spy, and the Nazi rocket program.
The first rocket will take five minutes to hit London. You have six minutes to stop the second.
Now in paperback, the eighth book of the bestselling Rivers of London series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.
Chris Offutt returns to his Kentucky roots in this noirish mystery-thriller. Written in spare prose, simple, almost Chandleresque (if Raymond Chandler was writing about the eastern Kentucky hills instead of the hills of L.A.), it's a story involving murder, family bonds and obligations, and outside influences. I grew up in the hills of Southern Indiana more than 60 years ago, but it was close enough to Offutt's setting to recognize the insularity and isolation of the region and to understand the authenticity of his characters' language, He clearly understands and loves these people.
The twentieth anniversary of a postmodern classic, blending the gothic novel with bleeding-edge science fiction
“The most delightfully, wickedly entertaining duo in crime fiction.”—The Plain Dealer
