DESCRIPTION:

“Sherlock Holmes crossed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” —Chicago Tribune

Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job, Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary–including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain the foul deeds are the work of the kind of creature whose very existence the local authorities–with the exception of a handsome young detective named Charlie Cane–seem adamant to deny.

“The rich world of this debut demands sequels.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“We honestly couldn’t put it down.” —Nerdist.com

“Toss together an alternate 19th-century New England city, a strong tradition of Sherlockian pastiche, and one seriously ugly hat, and this lighthearted and assured debut emerges, all action and quirk.” —Publishers Weekly

MORE REVIEWS
“Aaron Cooley writes with such galloping deftness and verve that you’ll find yourself swearing you were present at the creation of James Bond.”
– James Kaplan, author of FRANK: THE VOICE

“That fun hybrid of a fast-paced thriller and fantasized Roman a’ clef. Bond readers will enjoy it immensely–those who like WWII espionage stories will find it a good ride as well. It’ll be awhile until the next 007 literary adventure–Shaken, Not stirred is a more than worthy place holder for the holidays.”
– Wesley Britton, Bookpleasures.com

“A wonderful juxtaposition of vintage James Bond, Tom Clancy’s inestimable Jack Ryan, with a little whimsy thrown in for good measure. Four stars.”
– Carolann Dematos, HerLiterarySalon.com

“Cooley has done the near-impossible: crafted a tale even Ian Fleming himself would have been proud to call his own. The best book I’ve read this year.”
– David Callaham, screenwriter of THE EXPENDABLES and DOOM

“Cracks like the bullet from a sniper’s rifle. Full of guts and elegance; a great thriller and a terrific debut.”
– Colin Dickey, author of CRANIOKLEPTY and AFTERLIVES OF THE SAINTS

“A marvelous ‘what if’ about Ian Fleming and the genesis of James Bond. A top-notch spy thriller, too.”
– Bill Desowitz, author of JAMES BOND UNMASKED

DESCRIPTION:

From the # 1 New York Times–bestselling author of Black Hawk Down: The “shocking” story of the country’s unlikeliest drug kingpin (The Baltimore Sun).
 
By the early 1980s, Larry Lavin seemed to have everything going for him. He was a bright, charismatic young man who rose from working-class upbringings in a Massachusetts mill town to become a dentist with an Ivy League education and a thriving practice—a beloved father with a well-respected family in one of Philadelphia’s most exclusive suburbs.
 
But behind the façade of his success was a dark secret: Lavin was also the mastermind behind a cocaine empire that spread from Miami to Boston to New Mexico, catering to lawyers, stockbrokers, and other professionals, and generating an annual income of $60 million for the good doctor.
 
Now, Mark Bowden, a “master of narrative journalism” (The New York Times Book Review) tells the harrowing saga of Lavin’s rise and fall in “a shocking American tragedy . . . [that] shoots straight from the hip” (The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).
 
“An engrossing crime story and a compelling morality tale.” —The Arizona Republic
 
“Has all the elements of a chilling suspense thriller . . . A smoothly crafted, exciting, can’t-put-it-down book.” —The New Voice (Louisville)
 
“Bowden has emerged as one of our best writers of muscular nonfiction.” —The Denver Post

DESCRIPTION:

Love is a Lie.

As a photographer for the New York Post, Kari Martin was used to seeing heartache and scandal up close. But one night at the club… her whole world changed.

Heartbroken and willing to call off her wedding, she decides a change is in order and moves from NYC to a small town in Maine, where the average age of the residents there is sixty (or thereabouts). She works to fit in perfectly, and tries like hell not to let anyone find out just how very jaded she’s recently become over the lie called love.

Jake Isaac left Texas quite a few years ago; his heart torn from his chest, and his mind set on being a bachelor forever. Maine would welcome him, give him land to explore and a community to belong to. Getting a job as the coach of the local junior high and serving on the fire department kept him busy — and labeled him a hometown hero — but the truth of his damaged heart was forever hidden.

No one would ever know just how jaded he was about love. That is… until he meets Kari.
