For many long years, Atlee Pine was tormented by uncertainty  after her twin sister, Mercy, was abducted at the age of six  and never seen again. Now, just as Atlee is pressured to end  her investigation into Mercy’s disappearance, she finally  

gets her most promising breakthrough yet: the identity of her  sister’s kidnapper, Ito Vincenzo. 

With time running out, Atlee and her assistant Carol Blum  race to Vincenzo’s last known location in Trenton, New Jersey  — and unknowingly stumble straight into John Puller’s case,  blowing his arrest during a drug ring investigation involving  a military installation. 

Stunningly, Pine and Puller’s joint investigation uncovers a  connection between Vincenzo’s family and a breathtaking  scheme that strikes at the very heart of global democracy.  Peeling back the layers of deceit, lies and cover-ups, Atlee  finally discovers the truth about what happened to Mercy.

Tana French – The Searcher


A spellbinding, propulsive new novel from the bestselling  mystery writer who “is in a class by herself.” (The New York  Times) 

Cal Hooper thought a fixer-upper in a bucolic Irish village  would be the perfect escape. After twenty-five years in the  Chicago police force and a bruising divorce, he just wants to  build a new life in a pretty spot with a good pub where  nothing much happens. But when a local kid whose brother has  gone missing arm-twists him into investigating, Cal uncovers  layers of darkness beneath his picturesque retreat, and  starts to realize that even small towns shelter dangerous  secrets. 

“One of the greatest crime novelists writing today” (Vox)  weaves a masterful, atmospheric tale of suspense, asking what  we sacrifice in our search for truth and justice, and what we  risk if we don’t. 

Stephen King – Later




The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just  wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child.  Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep  secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what  no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is  higher than Jamie can imagine—as he discovers when an NYPD  detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has  threatened to strike from beyond the grave. 

LATER is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and  touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our  sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King’s classic novel It, LATER is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable  exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the  faces it wears.
