An incomprehensible admission, a horrifying deed … A secret with the power to destroy, and a superhuman father with beast-like brilliance …
At age thirteen, five years after his mother’s death, Joel Gasteneau is beaten so brutally by his father that he almost doesn’t survive. Yet he makes himself live, his strength of will extraordinary even then, and he runs away from home.
Alone and comforted only by running and the bloodless beauty of math, he makes his own way, rising eventually to the Green Berets: an elite athlete who nevertheless cannot quite outdistance himself from the torments of his childhood.
Now, at thirty-three, consumed by doubt and a growing sense of hypochondria, he resolves at last to follow through on an idea he first thought of when he was a child: to seek out a piece of evidence that shows with certainty God’s hand at work upon the earth. But in seeking this evidence, he’s stricken by an enigmatic illness that almost kills him: and there, inside the fevered meat of his brain, he unearths a memory so chilling that his life is forever altered.
One of the most challenging novels of the last decade, Pale Criminal is at its core an inquiry into godless morality and human virtue, an exploration of how we live, part mystery story, part literary crime novel combing the surreal imagery of Nabokov with the psychological complexity of Dostoevsky — a metaphysical thriller of mind-spinning intrigue and a philosophical odyssey into the most fundamental questions.

“I find the lonely ones, like me. The people who haven’t lost anything, because they never had it to begin with.”
Vincent has spent his entire life being shuffled from one foster home to the next. His grades suck. Making friends? Out of the question thanks to his nervous breakdowns and unpredictable moods. Still, Vince thought when Maggie Atkins took him in, he might have finally found a place to get his life–and his issues–in order.
When Maggie dies, it all falls apart.
A year ago, Vince watched a girl leap to her death off a bridge. He’s starting to think she had the right idea.
Through a pro-suicide forum, Vince meets others with the same debate regarding death: cancer-ridden Casper would rather off herself than slowly waste away, and there’s quiet, withdrawn Adam, whose mother wouldn’t notice if he fell off the face of the planet.
As they gravitate toward each other, Vince searches for a reason to live while coping without Maggie, coming to terms with Casper’s imminent death, and falling in love with a boy who doesn’t plan on sticking around.
Genre(s): Historical Fiction | Family Saga
Step back in time to Prohibition and prostitution during the Roaring Twenties. Follow Giulietta Bracca’s notorious rise to wealth and power, from street urchin in 1905 Genoa, Italy, to the headmistress of Night School, Chicago’s most popular and innovative men’s club in the 1920s. Along the way Giulietta plays a deadly game of one-upmanship with men who use her, abuse her, and fall head-over-heels in love with her. This quick-study seductress soon learns to give as good as she gets, and with few regrets–those so devastating they will haunt her into eternity. But there is one man Giulietta will never forget: the immigrant bootlegger she gave up too soon and will stop at nothing to lure him back, even if it means jeopardizing all she holds dear.
A prequel and partial parallel to Giacoletto’s Italian/American saga The Family Angel, Chicago’s Headmistress can also stand alone. Every story has more than one side and within a generational saga many stories link and overlap. And as in real life, their endings rarely dissolve into happily ever after.
A must-read for fans of The Family Angel, Family Deceptions, The Godfather, and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
