    Rabbi David Small, the new leader of Barnard’s Crossing’s Jewish community, can’t even enjoy his Sabbath without things getting stirred up in a most unorthodox manner. It seems a young nanny has been found strangled, less than a hundred yards from the Temple’s parking lot—and all the evidence points to the rabbi. Add to that the not-so-quiet rumblings of his disgruntled congregation and you might say our inimitable hero needs a miracle from a higher source to save him.

But Houseman doesn’t know why they died, or who cut them down in a blaze of automatic rifle fire. Now, as the Feds descend on Nation County, Houseman and his fellow cops are suddenly walking point, searching for answers amidst the violence, treachery, and evil in their own backyard.

    This novel by Carl Hiaasen, author of Tourist Season and Native Tongue, begins as most thrillers do—with a killing. But this is no everyday, hum-drum, garden variety killing. Our hero, Nick Stranahan, a forty-two-year-old private investigator, who has killed five men and been married five times, skewers his attacker’s aorta with the razor-sharp bill of a stuffed marlin, setting off a roller coaster ride of events that will drop-kick Stranahan into the deep slime of Miami’s prosperous plastic surgery industry. As with Hiaasen’s other books, Skin Tight is one long, extended farce, a comic take on everything from television tabloid hosts to ambulance chasers, chronicling modern America’s ever-growing penchant for tastelessness, self-absorption, and high sleaze. You will find yourself laughing in spite of yourself at wildly improbable characters like Chemo, a seven-foot monster with a face like a bowl of breakfast cereal; Heather Chappell, who wants to completely renovate her Barbie-doll body; and Reynaldo Flemm, the host of prime time’s In Your Face, who stages mock attacks to his person in order to increase the Nielsen ratings.

    Operating from his headquarters in Hong Kong, Deng seems a pillar of society and one of the Crown Colony’s most influential Chinese businessmen, yet beneath the facade he is a man whose shadowy past conceals a life of revenge and murder. Because of the imminent takeover of Hong Kong by Red China, Deng has begun a search for an American law firm to handle his US interests prior to his own relocation there. Eager to net Deng as a client, and learning that recruiting young Tom MacLean will give them the inside track, the New York law firm of Needham & Lewis persuades the brilliant prosecutor to leave the US attorney’s office and join them. When MacLean becomes Deng’s lawyer, he has no idea of the truth about his wealthy client, or of the unwitting role played by his own father, a former CIA officer, in Deng’s rise to power. As Deng masterminds a daring plan to transfer the assets of the Hong Kong crime syndicates to the United States with a huge shipment of the finest pure heroin, “China white,” MacLean finds himself caught up in a tangled web of conspiracy and deceit, torn between his duty as Deng’s lawyer to protect his client’s interests, and his deepening love for Shannon O’Shea, an FBI agent specializing in Chinese organized crime and heroin trafficking. O’Shea becomes Deng’s nemesis, dogging his every step, risking not only her relationship with MacLean but both their very lives in a spell-binding conclusion that takes the reader from the innermost secrets of the CIA to the hidden Chinatown world of the new Mafia.

    CASINO From Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguy—the #1 bestseller that became Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award–winning film GoodFellas—comes the brilliantly told true story of love, marriage, adultery, murder, and revenge, Mafia-style … the shattering inside account of how the mob finally lost its stranglehold over the neon money-making machine it created: the multibillion-dollar casino gambling industry of Las Vegas. CASINO No one knew more about casinos than Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal, the gambling mastermind who, along with his best friend and partner, Anthony Spilotro, virtually ran Las Vegas for the mob. For years, it was the perfect arrangement—Lefty provided the smarts, while Tony kept the bosses happy with their weekly suitcases filled with millions in skimmed cash. It should have lasted forever, but Lefty’s obsession with running the town—and Tony’s obsession with Lefty’s beautiful showgirl wife, Geri—eventually led to the betrayals and investigations that exploded into one of the greatest debacles in mob history.

    It’s 1919, and the “War to End All Wars” has been won. But there is no peace for Scotland Yard inspector Ian Rutledge, recently returned from the battlefields of France shell-shocked and tormented by the ever-present voice of the young Scot he had executed for refusing an order. Escaping into his work to save his sanity, Rutledge investigates the murder of a popular colonel in Warwickshire and his alleged killer, a decorated war hero and close friend of the Prince of Wales. The case is a political minefield, and its resolution could mean the end of Rutledge’s career. Win or lose, the cost may be more than the damaged investigator can bear, for the one witness who can break the case open is, like Rutledge, a war-ravaged victim, and his grim, shattered fate could well prove to be the haunted investigator’s own as well.
