The author of the #1 New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train returns with Into the Water, her addictive new novel of psychological suspense. A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged. Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she'd never return. With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present. Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.

Jack Flynn's Blood in the Water is an edge-of-the-seat ride in a roller coaster, action-packed thriller with international terrorism at its core and family at its heart.

Her prey is Vincente Carpio, one of the world’s most dangerous criminals. He is clever, calculating and he's biding his time. Diamond O’Connell is a daughter, a lover and a fighter. She’s seen things most nineteen-year-old girls couldn’t even begin to imagine. And she’s about to become a pawn in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Everyone has their part to play, but now it seems that there are much darker, far-reaching forces at work which look to be preparing for the international stage.

Llosa evokes the experiences which gave rise to his fiction, and describes the social, literary, and political influences that led him to enter the political arena as a crusader for a free-market economy. A deeply absorbing look at how fact becomes fiction and at the formation of a courageous writer with strong political commitments, A Fish in the Water reveals Mario Vargas Llosa as a world figure whose real story is just beginning.

At times a Dickensian tale of a poor boy made good, at other times an exploration of the intricate relations between writers and their readers, this inventive novel spans nearly two centuries, following the life of the little-known author Hector de Saint-Aureole and the impact of his self-published autobiography on those to whom the book finds its way. The narrative form is an ongoing series of intertwined shorts with six photographic interludes. The worldwide settings range from early twentieth-century France to the future United States of the year 2059, when books have become nearly obsolete. The shifting points-of-view include those of Saint-Aureole, his wife, his daughter, and his assorted readers. There are also visitations to Saint-Aureole by Jesus Christ and the Hindu goddess Lakshmi. Those familiar with Lawrence Sutin's innovative illustrated autobiography, A Postcard Memoir, or his biographies of the enigmatic authors Philip K. Dick and Aleister Crowley, will be delighted to find past themes newly explored in a richly evocative novel. Those new to Sutin will find When to Go into Water a fascinating introduction to an author who delights in the strange and the whimsical.
