<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. Catch a tiger by its toe.</i><br /><br />It's seared into Atlee Pine's memory: the kidnapper's chilling rhyme as he chose between six-year-old Atlee and her twin sister, Mercy. Mercy was taken. Atlee was spared. <br /><br />She never saw Mercy again.<br /><br />Three decades after that terrifying night, Atlee Pine works for the FBI. She's the lone agent assigned to the Shattered Rock, Arizona resident agency, which is responsible for protecting the Grand Canyon. <br /><br />So when one of the Grand Canyon's mules is found stabbed to death at the bottom of the canyon-and its rider missing-Pine is called in to investigate. It soon seems clear the lost tourist had something more clandestine than sightseeing in mind. 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. But unless Pine keeps working the case and discovers the truth, it could spell the very end of democracy in America as we know it...</div><div><br /></div><div><b>"Love it!" --Lisa Gardner</b></div><div><b>"Atlee Pine is unforgettable." --James Patterson<br /></b></div><div><b>"David Baldacci's best yet." --Lisa Scottoline <br /></b></div><div><b>"Heart-poundingly suspenseful." --Scott Turow<br /></b></div><div><b>"A stunning debut." --Douglas Preston <br />"A perfect blend of action, secrets, and conspiracies." --Steve Berry<br />"Baldacci is at the top of his game." --Kathy Reichs</b><br /></div>

<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>

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b>• <b>The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s <i>Game of Thrones</i>.</b><br /><br /> Centuries before the events of <i>A Game of Thrones,</i> House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. <i>Fire & Blood</i> begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.<br /><br /> What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as <i>The World of Ice & Fire, </i>but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.<br /><br /> With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s <i>The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,</i> <i>Fire & Blood </i>is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Fire & Blood</i></b><br /><br />“I love it <i>so</i> much. <i>Fire & Blood</i> is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s <i>The Silmarillion</i>. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but <i>Fire & Blood</i> flies.”—<b><i>Entertainment Weekly</i></b><br /><br /> “A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.”<b> —<i>The Sunday Times</i></b><br /><br /> “The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”<b>—<i>The Guardian</i></b>

<b>Former Special Forces Officer and <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Brad Taylor delivers a heart-pounding thriller featuring Taskforce operators Pike Logan and Jennifer Cahill as they come face to face with a conspiracy where nothing is as it seems.</b><br /><br />Hot on the trail of a North Korean looking to sell sensitive US intelligence to the Syrian regime, Pike Logan and the Taskforce stumble upon something much graver: the sale of a lethal substance called Red Mercury.<br /><br />Unbeknownst to the Taskforce, the Syrians plan to use the weapon of mass destruction against American and Kurdish forces, and blame the attack on terrorists, causing western nations to reassess their participation in the murky cauldron of the Syrian civil war. <br /><br />Meanwhile, North Korea has its own devastating agenda: a double-cross that will dwarf the attack in Syria even as it lays the blame on the Syrian government. Leveraging Switzerland's fame for secrecy and its vast network of military bunkers, now repurposed by private investors for the clandestine storage of wealth, North Korea will use Red Mercury to devastate the West's ability to deliver further sanctions against the rogue regime. <br /><br />As the Taskforce begins to unravel the plot, a young refugee unwittingly holds the key to the conspiracy. Hunted across Europe for reasons she cannot fathom, she is the one person who can stop the attack--if she can live long enough for Pike and Jennifer to find her.
