<p><b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER (December 2017)</b><br /><b></b><b></b><br /><b>A stunning new novel from the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Nora Roberts—<i>Year One</i> is an epic of hope and horror, chaos and magick, and a journey that will unite a desperate group of people to fight the battle of their lives…</b><br /><b></b><br />It began on New Year’s Eve.</p><p>The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed—and more than half of the world’s population was decimated.</p><p>Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magick rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max. Some of it is unimaginably evil, and it can lurk anywhere, around a corner, in fetid tunnels beneath the river—or in the ones you know and love the most. </p><p>As word spreads that neither the immune nor the gifted are safe from the authorities who patrol the ravaged streets, and with nothing left to count on but each other, Lana and Max make their way out of a wrecked New York City. At the same time, other travelers are heading west too, into a new frontier. Chuck, a tech genius trying to hack his way through a world gone offline. Arlys, a journalist who has lost her audience but uses pen and paper to record the truth. Fred, her young colleague, possessed of burgeoning abilities and an optimism that seems out of place in this bleak landscape. And Rachel and Jonah, a resourceful doctor and a paramedic who fend off despair with their determination to keep a young mother and three infants in their care alive.</p><p>In a world of survivors where every stranger encountered could be either a savage or a savior, none of them knows exactly where they are heading, or why. But a purpose awaits them that will shape their lives and the lives of all those who remain.</p><p>The end has come. The beginning comes next.</p>

<p><b>Nora Roberts, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of the epic <i>Year One</i> returns with </b><b><i>Of Blood and Bone, </i></b><b>a new tale of terror and magick in a brand new world.</b></p><p>They look like an everyday family living an ordinary life. But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed.</p><p>Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before—the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted—and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden.</p><p>In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries. She will learn the old ways of healing; study and spar; encounter faeries and elves and shifters; and find powers within herself she never imagined. And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again.</p>

Now, Dan has finally found some order in the chaos by working in a local hospice, earning the nickname “Doctor Sleep” by secretly using his special abilities to comfort the dying and prepare them for the afterlife. But when he unexpectedly meets twelve-year-old Abra Stone—who possesses an even more powerful manifestation of the shining—the two find their lives in sudden jeopardy at the hands of the ageless and murderous nomadic tribe known as the True Knot, reigniting Dan’s own demons and summoning him to battle for this young girl’s soul and survival...

The communist Chinese want to carve off a colony in North America, and the United States is mobilizing for war to stop it and to finally reunify the country split apart a decade before. <br /><br />As hunger and violence sweep across what had once been Golden State, Kelly Turnbull must undertake his most daring mission yet. With his trusty .45, some old friends, and an elite team of operators, he faces a terrifying new enemy and a deadly old one as the battle to restore the United States of America climaxes in the ruins of the People’s Republic’s western capital city of San Francisco. <br /><br />Deadlier than ever, Kelly Turnbull is going to settle old scores and new ones too, shooting first, then shooting again before bothering to ask questions later.

<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>In this first installment of the Renée Ballard series, #1 bestselling author Michael Connelly introduces a "complicated and driven" young detective fighting to prove herself on the LAPD's toughest beat (<i>The New York Times</i>).</b><b><br /></b>Renee Ballard works the midnight shift in Hollywood, beginning many investigations but finishing few, as each morning she turns everything over to the daytime units. It's a frustrating job for a once up-and-coming detective, but it's no accident. She's been given this beat as punishment after filing a sexual harassment complaint against a supervisor.<br />But one night Ballard catches two assignments she doesn't want to part with. First, a prostitute is brutally beaten and left for dead in a parking lot. All signs point to a crime of premeditation, not passion, by someone with big evil on his mind. Then she sees a young waitress breathe her last after being caught up in a nightclub shooting. Though dubbed a peripheral victim, the waitress buys Ballard a way in, and this time she is determined not to give up at dawn. Against orders and her partner's wishes, she works both cases by day while maintaining her shift by night. <br />As the investigations intertwine, Ballard is forced to face her own demons and confront a danger she could never have imagined. To find justice for these victims who can't speak for themselves, she must put not only her career but her life on the line. <br />Propulsive as a jolt of adrenaline and featuring a bold and defiant new heroine, <i>The Late Show </i>is yet more proof that Michael Connelly is "a master of the genre" (<i>Washington Post</i>).
