Batten Down the Belfry is the fourth in the delightful cozy mystery series from Diane Kelly set in Nashville, Tennessee—where the real estate market is to die for. Here is the church, here is the steeple... Carpenter Whitney Whitaker and her cousin Buck have successfully flipped houses, but this is the first time they’ve attempted to renovate a house of worship. Still, the colorful stained glass in the country church has caught Whitney’s eye, and she’d love to breathe new life into the abandoned building. What’s more, the place has perfect acoustics. Could the worship hall be reborn as an entertainment venue with its parsonage repurposed as a pre-show bistro? Open the doors, and see all the trouble. The owner of the horse farm next door has asserted a legal claim to the church property, rendering their title uncertain. If that’s not bad enough, while rehabbing the church, Whitney’s cat Sawdust discovers a bombshell in the bell tower—the body of the man who’d delivered their beautiful new replacement windows. What transpired in the spire? Who rang the man’s bell and why? The steeple is keeping its secrets and, when a second body turns up, things become even less clear. Can Whitney help Detective Collin Flynn solve the crimes before someone else is sent to meet their maker?

'A major achievement.' CLAUDIA RANKINE 'Endlessly absorbing.' SINÉAD GLEESON 'A probing tour of capitalism and class.' MAGGIE NELSON 'Exhilarating.' JENNY OFFILL A personal reckoning with the intricacies of money, class and capitalism from the New York Times bestselling author. Having just purchased her first home, Eula Biss embarks on a roguish and risky self-audit of the value system she has bought into. The result is Having and Being Had: a radical interrogation of work, leisure and capitalism. Playfully ranging from IKEA to Beyoncé to Pokémon, across bars and laundromats and universities, she asks, of both herself and her class, 'In what have we invested? 'As a writer Eula Biss has two great gifts. The first is her ability to reveal to the reader what has, all along, been hidden in plain sight . . . Her other talent is for laying bare our submerged fears . . . In Having and Being Had, both gifts are on display . . . if you are not deeply discomfited by the time you finish reading On Having and Being Had, you have no conscience.' AMINATTA FORNA, GUARDIAN 'Calls on the controlled rush of poetry and turns experience into art.' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT 'Nuanced . . . Biss' sentences have retained a poet's precision.' IRISH TIMES 'Eula Biss's prescient new book gave me new language for things I didn't know I felt . . . A brilliant, lacerating re-examination of our relationship to what we own and why, and who in turn might own us.' ALEXANDER CHEE 'No contemporary writer I know explores and confronts her own societal responsibilities better than Eula Biss.' ALEKSANDER HEMON 'A meditation on race, consumerism and the American caste system. And a wry, vivd assessment of our spiritual moment. It is no accident that Having and Being Had reads like the poems money would write if money wrote poems.' JEET THAYIL

THE MORE YOU KNOW ABOUT THE FUTURE, THE MORE THERE MAY BE TO FEAR. Tara Sheridan is the best criminal profiler around—and the most unconventional. Trained as a forensic psychologist, Tara also specializes in Tarot card reading. But she doesn’t need her divination skills to realize that the new assignment from her friend and sometime lover, Agent Harry Li, is a dangerous proposition in every way. Former Cold War operatives, all linked to a top-secret operation tracking the disposal of nuclear weapons in Russia, are disappearing. There are no bodies, and no clues to their whereabouts. Harry suspects a conspiracy to sell arms to the highest bidder. The cards—and Tara’s increasingly ominous dreams—suggest something darker.

And a nightmare that began decades ago in Chernobyl will reach a terrifying endgame that not even Tara could have foreseen. . . .

Eubanks's A Southern Wind, Virginia billionaire and militia leader Claiborne Randolph is a highly powerful personal advisor to the U.S. president, and former government intelligence agent James Benton Stark is now a U.S. senator. This time, they're fighting a hideous virus infecting the people of the United States: illegal drugs. The presidential administration sends Lieutenant General John Hanberry and his forces to destroy the drug infrastructure of Colombia and confront China's growing influence in the old Canal Zone and Latin America. Hanberry's army is determined to end the perpetual cycle of human destruction caused by that insidious commerce-and they succeed. Emboldened by success in Colombia and Panama, the government, now led by President Randolph and Senator Stark, begins a new era of an American Democratic Empire based on the U.S. Constitution and the principles of freedom written by the Founding Fathers. But a bigger problem hides in the desert sands of Iran, one that won't be nearly as easy as their victories in Latin America and may just signal the end of the Virginia Militia .

Cocaine, the Gulf Connection is not about cocaine gangs and shoot outs in Mexican border towns, but rather it details the complex workings of a sophisticated smuggling operation that has gone unknown to the Mexican and U.S. governments for thirteen years. The success of the smuggling operation comes from a high degree of compartmentalization, which allows no chance for any one piece of the Company to betray another. Yes, the smugglers think of themselves as a Company. Retired FBI agent Nicholas Able is hired to consult in locating the source of Cocaine for what the FBI thanks is a large Houston Texas drug distribution network. The trail starts at a local bar off Galveston Bay and grows to a network that covers all of the Texas Gulf Coast and into Tampico Mexico. Mr. McDonald has produced a plot that is intricate and nonstop. The logic and detailed detective work descriptions are fascinating and an interagency battle for control of the case between the DEA and FBI adds to the drama. The book is not a Who done it, thats known from the outset. Cocaine, The Gulf Connection is about finding the bad guys and then bringing them down.

Set over the course of one Sunday, The Slow Midnight on Cypress Avenue is a collection of interconnected vignettes that takes the reader through the streets and across sidewalks of Cypress Avenue—an unkempt afterthought, just a place that sits at the neighborhood border edge of Ridgewood Queens, NY. The three-part book—broken into Morning, Afternoon, and Night—introduces you to the irregular regulars of the human race. There is the soft and strange relationship between the eccentric Samuel Jean and a young girl of Puerto Rican descent named Desponda “Dezzy” Rivera. There’s “Old” Goldie Samuels, a washed-up relic who spends her days spinning yarns and getting free drinks at the local liquor store. But the story is truly centered on Corporal Benjamin Zogby, a veteran who spends his days alone on his stoop watching the bus go by and wishing his love would return to him. It’s his tragic fate that sends the avenue and the other inhabitants you’ll meet—Earl the fisherman, Father John White, among others—into an unstoppable tailspin toward unexpected change and inner destruction.
