DESCRIPTION:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Karin Slaughter, author of the bestselling Will Trent novels, is widely acclaimed as “one of the best crime novelists in America” (The Washington Post). Now she delivers her first stand-alone novel: an epic story of a city in the midst of seismic upheaval, a serial killer targeting cops, and a divided police force tasked with bringing a madman to justice.

Atlanta, 1974: As a brutal murder and a furious manhunt rock the city’s police department, Kate Murphy wonders if her first day on the job will also be her last. She’s determined to defy her privileged background by making her own way–wearing a badge and carrying a gun. But for a beautiful young woman, life will be anything but easy in the macho world of the Atlanta PD, where even the female cops have little mercy for rookies. It’s also the worst day possible to start given that a beloved cop has been gunned down, his brothers in blue are out for blood, and the city is on the edge of war.

Kate isn’t the only woman on the force who’s feeling the heat. Maggie Lawson followed her uncle and brother into the ranks to prove her worth in their cynical eyes. When she and Kate, her new partner, are pushed out of the citywide search for a cop killer, their fury, pain, and pride finally reach the boiling point. With a killer poised to strike again, they will pursue their own line of investigation, risking everything as they venture into the city’s darkest heart.

Relentlessly paced, acutely observed, wickedly funny, and often heartbreaking, Cop Town is Karin Slaughter’s most powerful novel yet–a tour de force of storytelling from our foremost master of character, atmosphere, and suspense.

“Karin Slaughter is simply one of the best thriller writers working today, and Cop Town shows the author at the top of her game–relentless pacing, complex characters, and gritty realism, all set against the backdrop of a city on the edge. Slaughter’s eye for detail and truth is unmatched. . . . I’d follow her anywhere.”–Gillian Flynn

How to transform your mindset and find meaning in just 40 days, without massively changing your daily routine…

Do you feel like you are living the same day over and over? Are you going through life on autopilot?

You’re not alone.

Millions of people live their lives passively, reacting to experiences and events as if they have no control over what happens to them.

They are unaware of the importance of their mentality on their happiness, life satisfaction, and stress levels.

Days and weeks seem to blend together into a stressful pattern of chores, errands, work, and sleep. Stress becomes the new normal.

In fact, the World Health Organization has declared stress a “worldwide epidemic” that has grown wildly out of control. But it is possible to change the outcome.

While there will always be some things that are out of your control, you are never powerless.

Despite the hustle and bustle of modern life, you have the ability to choose how you experience things– will you stop and smell the roses? Or will you miss out as you hurry to check off another task?

You have been led to believe it simply isn’t possible to catch your breath and enjoy life without falling behind, but this is untrue.

The truth is you can start shifting your mindset, and your life, by taking the smallest of steps and choosing to slow down. You can unlock the inner peace that has always felt impossible to achieve.

In The 40-Day Mindful Pause, here is just a fraction of what you will discover:

  • The surprising opportunities for mindfulness which already exist in your daily routine, including your commute, meals, and more…
  • Simple tips and tricks for integrating mental exercises to boost physical and mental function effortlessly
  • Step by step daily exercises to promote focus, stress relief, and inner calm in less than 10 minutes a day
  • Why being present in the moment is so crucial to getting the fullest enjoyment out of life
  • How you can train your brain to enjoy the moment and avoid getting caught up in worries about the future and things outside of your control
  • The surprising benefits practicing gratitude has on your health, emotional resilience, and relationships
  • How to practice active listening and create a solid foundation for being a compassionate, aware individual
  • Why perfectionism and people pleasing are eating away at your sense of self-worth, and how you can start talking back to the voice in your head

And much more.

You can start to change your life with just five, ten, or fifteen minutes a day– less than the time it takes to watch an episode on Netflix.

By choosing to find the time to focus on your wellbeing, you are making a decision which not only benefits you but also helps those you love. When you thrive, they thrive.

Opportunities to practice mindfulness are opportunities to melt away stress and quiet the demands of everyday life. Make the best choice for you, and start taking advantage of those moments today.

Available through February 23 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

Our existence is fragile. I learned that in many intricate ways, so I do not take today for granted. I do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not even know if tomorrow will come.

On the eve of Thanksgiving 2016, I received the diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer. Next to dying, I fear the spread of cancer to my brain and losing my ability to think, speak, or write. This loss would be devastating to me.

The fragility of our life made me want to be authentic. Therefore, I am writing this memoir to be authentic–we become our true selves when we author who we are.

I am afraid of being forgotten. Death does frighten me. But more than dying, I am scared of having no one remember me or, even worse, of being recognized differently from who I was. At the same time, I have never thought that I was entitled to ask others not to forget me. But, not to be forgotten is precisely what I yearn for.

While I am writing for the other, I am simultaneously writing for myself. I am one of the readers and will test the subject as it gets written. My criteria are stricter. I want to say, “This is my narrative.”

I need to be able to say, “This is my narrative.”
