Our Editors’ Picks Revealed!

Our Editors’ Picks Revealed!

Yesterday during Library Journal's "Editor's Picks" webinar, our very own Jen Enderlin (Vice President and Associate Publisher, St. Martin's Press) and Kelley Ragland (Editorial Director, Minotaur Books) gushed about the following four summer titles that they're incredibly excited to be working on:

THE CARETAKER
A.X. Ahmad
Coming in May!

A disgraced Sikh Indian Army captain becomes ensnared in a U.S. Senator's shadowy world while working as a caretaker on the Senator's estate.

"Weaving together Singh’s Sikh faith with very personal moments, taut action sequences, and events with international significance, Ahmad’s thriller should have broad appeal." -Library Journal (starred review)

"Beyond the masterfully crafted high-adrenaline story, readers will be fascinated by Ranjit's Sikh faith, rarely seen in American fiction." -Booklist (starred review)

Download our Spring 2013 Debut Chapter E-Sampler to starting reading THE CARETAKER now!

ALWAYS WATCHING
Chevy Stevens
Coming in June!

Family secrets and missing memories abound in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author.

LADIES' NIGHT
Mary Kay Andrews
Coming in June!

The perfect beach read about lifestyle blogger Grace Stanton whose life torpedos after she drives her cheating husband's pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool.

"Bound to be big." -Library Journal

LOST
S.J. Bolton
Coming in June!

A killer is taunting the cops, and London police officer Lacey Flint must pull herself together if she wants to help before it's too late.
