indie nextWe’ve got a sneak peek at the May 2016 Indie Next list and we’re delighted that both Macmillan titles also have several starred reviews:

A May 2016 LibraryReads pick & a SIBA Spring 2016 Okra pick! In New York Times bestselling author Hart’s “stellar crime thriller” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), a troubled detective must confront her past in the aftermath of a brutal shooting. Meanwhile, a former cop walks free after 13 years in prison—is he responsible for what happened at the abandoned church deep in the forest? “Hart plays brilliantly on the tradition of the southern gothic, but his grasp of character gives this novel—and all his works—the extra dimension that extends his audience well beyond adrenaline junkies.” — Booklist, starred review

This epic novel steeped in American history charts the course of a Kentucky horse breeder, his daughter, and a black man fresh from prison working in the stables, as they try to mold a fiery thoroughbred filly named Hellsmouth into a Triple Crown champion. “Vaultingly ambitious, thrillingly well-written, charged with moral fervor and rueful compassion. How will this dazzling writer astonish us next time?” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“There are passages of absolutely stunning prose in this book… Morgan deserves applause for the sheer audacity of this novel—and for its scope, its intelligence, and its undeniable power.” — Booklist, starred review
