<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b>• <b>Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (<i>Entertainment Weekly</i>).</b><br /><br /> Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, <i>What’s one extra day?</i> He takes the detour.<br /><br /> At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.<br /><br /> The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, <i>Was he ever there in the first place?<br /></i><br /> <i> </i>As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Past Tense<br /></i></b><br /> “Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”<b>—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /><br /> “[Lee Child]<i> </i>shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase <i>moral compass </i>was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”<b>—<i>The Atlantic</i></b><br /><br /> “Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (boxed and starred review)</b><br /><br /> “Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”<b>—<i>Booklist </i>(starred review)</b><br /><br /> “With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i> (starred review)</b>

<p><b>Harry Bosch teams up with LAPD Detective Renée Ballard in the new novel from #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Michael Connelly.</b></p><br /><br /><p>Detective Renée Ballard is working the night beat--known in LAPD slang as "the late show"--and returns to Hollywood Station in the early hours to find a stranger rifling through old file cabinets. The intruder is retired detective Harry Bosch, working a cold case that has gotten under his skin.</p><br /><br /><p>Ballard can't let him go through department records, but when he leaves, she looks into the case herself and feels a deep tug of empathy and anger. She has never been the kind of cop who leaves the job behind at the end of her shift--and she wants in.</p><br /><br /><p>The murder, unsolved, was of fifteen-year-old Daisy Clayton, a runaway on the streets of Hollywood who was brutally killed, her body left in a dumpster like so much trash. Now Ballard joins forces with Bosch to find out what happened to Daisy, and to finally bring her killer to justice. Along the way, the two detectives forge a fragile trust, but this new partnership is put to the test when the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn.</p><br /><br /><p><i>Dark Sacred Night</i> for the first time brings together these two powerhouse detectives in a riveting story that unfolds with furious momentum. And it shows once more why "there's no doubt Connelly is a master of crime fiction" (Associated Press). </p>

<b>#1 bestselling author John Grisham’s <i>The Reckoning</i> is his most powerful, surprising, and suspenseful thriller yet.</b><br />  <br />“A murder mystery, a courtroom drama, a family saga…<b><i>The Reckoning</i> is Grisham's argument that he's not just a boilerplate thriller writer</b>. Most jurors will think the counselor has made his case.”<br /><b>—<i>USA Today</i></b><br /> <br />  <i>October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi<br /> </i><br /> Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son—a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime.  Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family—was: "I have nothing to say." He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.<br />            <br /> In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him. <br /><br /> Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling, <i>The Reckoning</i> would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal suspense, and he delivers on every page.

<b>Introducing a remarkable new character from #1 New York Times bestselling writer David Baldacci: Atlee Pine, an FBI agent with special skills assigned to the remote wilds of the southwestern United States who must confront a new threat . . . and an old nightmare.</b><br /><br /><i>Eeny, meeny, miny, moe.

But just as Pine begins to put together clues pointing to a terrifying plot, she's abruptly called off the case. <br /><br /><div>If she disobeys direct orders by continuing to search for the missing man, it will mean the end of her career.
