<p>As entertaining as it is incisive, <em>Stoned</em> is a raucous journey through the history of human desire for what is rare, and therefore precious.</p><p>What makes a stone a jewel? What makes a jewel priceless? And why do we covet beautiful things? In this brilliant account of how eight jewels shaped the course of history, jeweler and scientist Aja Raden tells an original and often startling story about our unshakeable addiction to beauty and the darker side of human desire.</p><p>What moves the world is what moves each of us: desire. Jewelry—which has long served as a stand-in for wealth and power, glamor and success—has birthed cultural movements, launched political dynasties, and started wars. Masterfully weaving together pop science and history, <em>Stoned</em> breaks history into three categories—Want, Take, and Have—and explains what the diamond on your finger has to do with the GI Bill, why green-tinted jewelry has been exalted by so many cultures, why the glass beads that bought Manhattan for the Dutch were initially considered a fair trade, and how the French Revolution started over a coveted necklace.</p><p>Studded with lively personalities and fascinating details, <em>Stoned</em> tells the remarkable story of our abiding desire for the rare and extraordinary.</p>

<b>On a snowy Christmas Eve, a beautiful young mother goes out to buy a few last minute gifts...and never returns.<br />Thirty years later, her daughter picks up her trail.</b> <br />What really happened to Audrey Nealon’s mother? Did she die in a tragic accident? Or did she abandon her husband and young daughter? And why is Audrey’s father so cold and distant?<br /> <br />As the successful owner of an estate sale business, Audrey has put the past behind her. Her mother is a distant memory, her father a problem she keeps closed away.<br /> <br />Until the day Audrey clears out the home of a lonely old widow and finds some shocks.<br /> <br />Street drugs in the silverware drawer, a trunkful of jewels in the attic, and the distinctive ring Audrey’s mother was wearing the night her car supposedly sank to the bottom of a New Jersey lake.<br /> <br />Relentlessly, Audrey pursues clues to her family’s troubled history. Because the truth will set her free…unless it gets her killed.<br /> <br />Each fact Audrey uncovers drags her further away from the love she craves. Now she’s on a collision course with people more determined, more ambitious, and more dangerous than she can fathom. As the twist ending reveals, some truths are too awful to bear, and too terrible to share.<br /> <br />Fans of Liane Moriarty and Melinda Leigh will enjoy this romantic thriller with its fun mix of mystery, romance, and humor and a strong female detective. And if you're a dog lover who enjoys Spencer Quinn's Chet and Bernie mystery series, you'll want to meet Ethel, the canine sidekick who steals every scene she's in.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br /><br /><b><b>David R. Gillham’s next remarkable book, <i>Annelies</i>, is coming in 2019 from Viking Books</b></b></b><br /><br /> It is 1943—the height of the Second World War. With the men away at the front, Berlin has become a city of women.<br /><br /> On the surface, Sigrid Schröder is the model German soldier’s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime.<br /><br /> But behind this façade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman of passion who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of the war. But Sigrid is not the only one with secrets—she soon finds herself caught between what is right and what is wrong, and what falls somewhere in the shadows between the two . . .
