A WILD SWAN by Michael Cunningham
Classic fairy tales are reimagined for our times by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of THE HOURS and exquisitely illustrated by Yuko Shimizu. “Cunningham doesn’t retell but rethinks these tales, considering how they might play out today or what happens long after the spell has been broken.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert

Award-winning actress Illeana Douglas’s memoir about learning to survive in Hollywood while staying true to her quirky vision of the world.
PETTY by Warren Zanes
An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured alongside him.
THE LADY IN THE VAN by Alan Bennett
Soon to be a major motion picture starring Maggie Smith, Alan Bennett’s famous and heartwarming story “The Lady in the Van,” and more of Bennett’s classic short form work.
AMERICAN BLOOD by Ben Sanders
A former undercover cop now in witness protection finds himself pulled into the search for a missing woman in New Mexico. The film rights sold to Warner Bros with Bradley Cooper attached to star and produce!
MYSTIC by Jason Denzel
The start of an enchanting new epic fantasy series about a commoner who must undergo three trials to prove her worthiness in unraveling the secrets of the Myst.
MADE TO KILL by Adam Christopher
Raymond Chandler’s detective fiction meets Lawrence Block’s Keller novels…with robots! Raymond Electromatic, the lone robot P.I. of the Electromatic Detective Agency, is hired to find a missing movie star, and soon uncovers a sinister plot that goes beyond the silver screen.
HOME BY NIGHTFALL by Charles Finch
A death in the family brings gentleman sleuth Charles Lenox back to the country house where he grew up—just in time to confront an odd, unsettling crime in a nearby village.
CRUCIFIXION CREEK by Barry Maitland
The first in a new series from the LibraryReads author of THE RAVEN’S EYE (a Brock and Kolla mystery) starring Sydney homicide detective Harry Belltree. “Recommend this bare-knuckle tale to fans of Peter Temple, another hardboiled Aussie who likes it rough.” — Booklist
TENACITY by J.S. Law
Cramped, claustrophobic, and under strict command, the confines of naval submarine HMS Tenacity are unwelcoming in the best of circumstances. For Lieutenant Danielle “Dan” Lewis, the only female aboard, who must methodically interrogate a tightknit and hostile crew about a suicide and a murder, it’s her own special place in hell. “The unusual setting adds a great deal of interest but never slows the action in this fast-paced nail-biter starring a flawed but dynamic character. A very promising series.” — Booklist
THE IRRESISTIBLE ROGUE by Valerie Bowman (Playful Brides series)
Fiery Lady Daphne Swift is hell bent on two things: finding the men who killed her brother and securing her engagement to another man to forget about Captain Rafferty Cavendish forever. Can Rafe convince Daphne to give him one more chance, on the mission and with her heart?
DEAD RINGERS by Christopher Golden
With a deep history that threads back to the days of Alistair Crowley and an ancient house, the spirits of some long dead magicians live on by possessing the lives of others in the present day.
