Summary: Named one of Library Journal's Best Books of 2017 "Exceptional first novel."--Publishers Weekly, starred review "Will grip suspense aficionados from the first page."--Library Journal, starred review "A skillfully written, gripping thriller."--Booklist "Action-packed with breakneck pacing."--Foreword Reviews When a day trip out of Las Vegas with his wife takes a turn for the worse, Jack is sure that he has the ability to get them home. But he drove into something far beyond reason. Rescue comes in the form of a desert hermit, but hope fades as the couple comes to realize that the nomad has no intention of letting them leave. A chance encounter with a kidnapped runaway and her crazed abductor leads them all farther into the wilderness--and closer to the cold brutality that isolation brings. At the edge of his sanity, Jack begins to learn that playing by another's rules may be the only way to survive. In a voice that is as hypnotizing as a desert mirage, debut novelist Samuel Parker entices readers down a dangerous road, where the forces of good and evil are as crushing as the Mojave heat. This is suspense in its purest, most unfiltered form.

Summary: Finn Garvie’s life is one spectacular mess. He spends most of his time fannying around a makeshift Glasgow studio, failing to paint his degree portfolio, while his girlfriend Lizzi treats him like one of her psychology patients, and his best friend Rob is convinced that the tattoos he designs are the height of artistic achievement. To top it all, Finn is worried that some stinking bastard is hanging around, spying on him, laughing at his cock-ups and eating his leftover curry. Fortunately, he has plenty of techniques to distract him – tackling the church hall renovations with the help of his alcoholic neighbour; pining after Kassia, the splendidly stroppy au-pair; and re-reading that book on Caravaggio, his all-time hero. Things take a turn for the strange when he finally encounters the person who’s been bugging him, and it seems to be none other than Caravaggio himself... Art, truth and madness come to blows in this darkly funny debut novel from a startling new talent.

Summary: Robert Gerards life story involves a fascinating journey full of twists, turns, and unexpected events. With no specific career plan in place, things just happened mostly good things! Along the way, over time, people, events, and places seemed to re-emerge in an intriguing way. Gerard was born in New York City in 1930. He and his mother and father lived on the west side, near Central Park. He didnt know until many years later that his father was an alien who had entered the United States illegally and changed his name. When Robert was just two years old, the FBI came knocking at the apartment off Central Park West. However, they were not looking for illegal aliens. They were looking for the Lindbergh baby! Later, the family moved to West Orange, New Jersey, a small town where it seemed that nearly everyone was employed by Thomas A. Edison, Inc. Gerards story captures the lean years of the 1930s, prior to World War II, some problems at home, and his escapades as a teen-ager during the war years, including two years of tough discipline at a private boarding school in North Jersey. It was during this period that his father was deported to Belgium from Ellis Island. After graduating from high school, Gerard joined the ranks of those who worked at one of the Edison factories in West Orange. Two older workers, combat veterans from WWII, became his mentors. During the early phases of the Korean War, they shared fascinating stories about their wartime experiences. Bored by factory work, and inspired by his two local heroes, Gerard enlisted in the army in 1951. As a result of some very poor training, Gerard and a good friend decided to apply for admission to Officer Candidate School. Ironically, Robert Gerard, the reluctant applicant, was accepted while his buddy was rejected. After his commissioning, his experience in Korea prompted him to remain in the army. While stationed with the 82d Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, he married a high school classmate in 1954. Together, they had eight children. Gerard describes his assignment as a weapons instructor at Fort Benning, Georgia and then, his experience as a student in the Armys flight school at Fort Rucker, Alabama. An opportunity to complete his undergraduate education took him and his family to Mississippi Southern College in Hattiesburg, Mississippi during the same year that James Meredith became the first black student to be admitted to the University of Mississippi. Gerards subsequent assignment at the armys Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas (1963-1964) was a year filled with major events, including President Kennedys assassination, the increasing commitment to military support for South Vietnam, and an address by former President Harry Truman. Next, a wonderful assignment in Verona, Italy, where his family lived in a small Italian village, was cut short due to critical needs for army helicopter pilots in Vietnam. He describes his first tour in Vietnam, including the buildup of U.S. conventional forces and the application of air mobility as a part of tactical operations. Also, he had an opportunity to see his brother whose base camp was just several miles away. After returning to the States, he worked in the Pentagon and described both the serious and hilarious events related to surviving in The Puzzle Palace. In 1970, his second tour in Vietnam placed him much farther north, near the Demilitarized Zone, where enemy forces consist mostly of North Vietnamese regulars. His description of military operations in Vietnam reflects both the early years as well as the beginning of the drawdown of U.S. forces. After an interesting year of study at Monmouth College, Gerard attended the U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, just a few miles south of Indiantown Gap where he took his basic training. His experien

Summary: Purgatorio is Martínez's most moving, most autobiographical novel and yet it is also a ghost story, the ghost story which has been Argentina's history since 1973. It begins, 'Simón Cardoso had been dead for thirty years when Emilia Dupuy, his wife, found him at lunchtime in the dining room of Trudy Tuesday.' Simón, a cartographer like Emilia, had vanished during one of their trips to map an uncharted country road. Later testimonies had confirmed that he had been one of the thousands of victims of the military regime - arrested, tortured and executed for being a "subversive." Yet Emilia had refused to believe this account, and had spent her entire life waiting for him to reappear. Now in her sixties, the Simón she has found is identical to the man she lost three decades ago. While skirting around the mystery, Eloy Martínez masterfully peels away layer upon layer of history -both personal and political. Just as Simón's disappearance comes to represent the thousands of disappearances that became such a common occurrence during the dictatorship, so Emilia's refusal to accept his death mirror's the country's unwillingness to face its reality.

Summary: An interstellar craft is decelerating after its century-long voyage. Its destination is V538 Aurigae ?, a now-empty planet dominated by one gigantic megastructure, a conical mountain of such height that its summit is high above the atmosphere. The ship's crew of five hope to discover how the long-departed builders made such a colossal thing, and why: a space elevator? a temple? a work of art? Its resemblance to the mountain of purgatory lead the crew to call this world Dante. In our near future, the United States is falling apart. A neurotoxin has interfered with the memory function of many of the population, leaving them reliant on their phones as makeshift memory prostheses. But life goes on. For Ottoline Barragão, a regular kid juggling school and her friends and her beehives in the back garden, things are about to get very dangerous, chased across the north-east by competing groups, each willing to do whatever it takes to get inside Ottoline's private network and recover the secret inside. Purgatory Mount, Adam Roberts's first SF novel for three years, combines wry space opera and a fast-paced thriller in equal measure. It is a novel about memory and atonement, about exploration and passion, and like all of Roberts's novels it's not quite like anything else.

Summary: Rose Marshall died in 1952 in Buckley Township, Michigan, run off the road by a man named Bobby Cross—a man who had sold his soul to live forever, and intended to use her death to pay the price of his immortality. Trouble was, he didn’t ask Rose what she thought of the idea. It’s been more than sixty years since that night, and she’s still sixteen, and she’s still running. They have names for her all over the country: the Girl in the Diner. The Phantom Prom Date. The Girl in the Green Silk Gown. Mostly she just goes by “Rose,” a hitchhiking ghost girl with her thumb out and her eyes fixed on the horizon, trying to outrace a man who never sleeps, never stops, and never gives up on the idea of claiming what’s his. She’s the angel of the overpass, she’s the darling of the truck stops, and she’s going to figure out a way to win her freedom. After all, it’s not like it can kill her. You can’t kill what’s already dead.

Summary: Prairie naturalist Trevor Herriot decides the road is how. Recovering from a misstep that could have been his last, he decides to go for a walk to sort through questions that rushed in upon the enforced stillness of waiting for his body to heal. The Road is How re-enchants our modern map of desire, spirit and nature by taking us on a three-day walk down an ordinary prairie road. Detouring along rail beds, over hills and into fields, sitting next to sloughs, waiting for a sparrow to sing to the dusk a second time, we enter a territory where imagination and experience carry us beyond the history of our transgressions to the soul’s contact with a broken land. By turns irreverent and meditative, lyrical and analytical, this moving account bears the characteristic style of Herriot’s bestseller River in a Dry Land, but this time the focus of his critique is not on the culture but on the individual. Attended by a pair of hawks and his remembered conversations with an old friend, the author discovers the depth of his own weakness and obsessions, and begins the longer walk into the second half of life by facing his own part in the spiritual failures of men and how that plays out in family, community and landscape. The Road is How matches landscape to the travelling soul and offers believers and skeptics alike an illuminating look at how brief passages in our lives can help us find grace in our footsteps on this good earth.

Summary: FBI Special Agent Duncan McGuire spends his days—and his nights—tracking real-life monsters. Most humans aren’t aware of the vampires and werewolves that walk among them. They don’t realize the danger that they face, but Duncan knows about the horror that waits in the darkness. He hunts the monsters, and he protects the innocent. Duncan just never expects to become a monster. But after a brutal werewolf attack, Duncan begins to change…and soon he will be one of the very beasts that he has hunted. Dr. Holly Young is supposed to help Duncan during his transition. It’s her job to keep him sane so that Duncan can continue working with the FBI’s Para Unit. But as Duncan’s beast grows stronger, the passion that she and Duncan have held carefully in check pushes to the surface. The desire that is raging between them could be a very dangerous thing…because Holly isn’t exactly human, not any longer. As the monsters circle in, determined to take out all of the agents working at the Para Unit, Holly and Duncan will have to use their own supernatural strengths in order to survive. But as they give up more of their humanity and embrace the beasts within them both, they realize that the passion between them isn’t safe, it isn’t controllable, and their dark need may just be an obsession that could destroy them both.

Summary: It is a widely held belief, especially amongst the peoples of English-speaking nations, that the Irish have the gift of the gab. Samuel Lover's Irish Stories and Legends shows the utter truthfulness of this conviction. In this volume you will find 21 uniquely Irish stories like: King O'toole And St. Kevin, Lough Corrib, A Legend Of Lough Mask, A White Trout, The Battle Of The Berrins and many more. So popular are these stories that after a recitation by Samuel Lover of a few tales at a dinner party, he was subsequently convinced to publish two of them in the Dublin Literary Gazette. The favourable reception of these tales resulted in Irish Stories and Legends, an exquisite and exceptional volume of Irish folklore. Prepared and collated with very few changes, Samuel Lover wanted to stay true to the original stories, so that the written story would enchant readers as though it were being presented in the vernacular. So curl up with this unique piece of Irish folklore, not seen in print for over one hundred and seventy years, and let the Gift of the Irish enchant and captivate you. A percentage of the sale of this book will be donated towards the education of underprivileged youth in Ireland.
