THREE CAN KEEP A SECRET by Archer Mayor
To mark the 25th anniversary of a long-running, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling series, Archer Mayor has written one of his best Joe Gunther books. An October Indie Next pick, THREE CAN KEEP A SECRET involves a complex case with two corpses, one escaped mental patient, and a long-held secret that binds them together.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE by David Finkel
MacArthur Fellow and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Finkel’s new book about life after war picks up with the same men he chronicled in his previous book, THE GOOD SOLDIERS. With three starred pre-publication reviews, such as this one from Booklist, it's not to be missed: "It is impossible not to be moved, outraged, and saddened by these stories, and Finkel’s deeply personal brand of narrative journalism is both heart-breaking and gut-wrenching in its unflinching honesty."
THE NIGHT GUEST by Fiona McFarlane
McFarlane's debut novel about trust, dependence, and fear centers on a widowed woman living outside an isolated beach town and the mysterious government care worker she admits into her home. Not only is it an Indie Next pick, it's also an Indies Introduce title--making it one of the ten best debuts of Fall 2013. "This book is at once a beautifully imagined portrait of isolation and an unsettling psychological thriller." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
