    For mysterious reasons, a man forsakes his American life and arrives in a strange country called Andorra. He settles into the grand—and only—hotel in its seaside capital, and gradually makes the aquaintance of this tiny city’s most prominent residents: the ancient Mrs. Reinhardt, who has a lifetime lease on the penthouse in the hotel; Sophonsobia Quay, the kayaking matriarch of an Andorran dynasty; and the Ricky Dents, an Australian couple who share a first name, a gigantic dog, and a volatile secret. As the stranger reveals himself to his new friends, and becomes entangled in their lives, the mystery of his own origin deepens. What is he hiding, and why? And when a mutilated dead body appears in the harbor, everyone is a suspect, including our narrator. Part thriller, part comedy of manners, part surrealistic dream, Andorra is “a work of remarkable and sustained invention and imagination . . . a nearly perfect book” (Robert Drake, The Philadelphia Inquirer).

    On the eve of the bloody Battle of the Somme, a group of English officers having a last drink before returning to the Front make a promise to each other: if they survive the battle ahead—and make it through the war—they will meet in Paris a year after the fighting ends. They will celebrate their good fortune by racing motorcars they beg, borrow, or own from Paris to Nice. In November 1919, the officers all meet as planned, and though their motorcars are not designed for racing, they set out for Nice. But a serious mishap mars the reunion. In the mountains just north of their destination, two vehicles are nearly run off the road, and one man is badly injured. No one knows—or will admit to knowing—which driver was at the wheel of the rogue motorcar. Back in England one year later, during a heavy rainstorm, a driver loses control on a twisting road and is killed in the crash. Was it an accident due to the hazardous conditions? Or premeditated murder? Is the crash connected in some way to the unfortunate events in the mountains above Nice the year before? The dead driver wasn’t in France—although the motorcar he drove was. If it was foul play, was it a case of mistaken identity? Or was the dead man the intended victim after all? Investigating this perplexing case, Scotland Yard Inspector Ian Rutledge discovers that the truth is elusive—and that the villages on the South Downs, where the accident happened, are adept at keeping secrets, frustrating his search. Determined to remain in the shadows this faceless killer is willing to strike again to stop Rutledge from finding him. This time, the victim he chooses is a child, and it will take all of Rutledge’s skill to stop him before an innocent young life is sacrificed.

    In post-NK3 Los Angeles, a sixty-foot-tall fence surrounds the hills where the rich used to live, but the mansions have been taken over by those with the only power that matters: the power of memory. Life for the community inside the Fence, ruled over by the new aristocracy, the Verified, is a perpetual party. Outside the Fence, in downtown Los Angeles, the Verified use an invented mythology to control the mindless and nameless Drifters, Shamblers, and Bottle Bangers who serve the gift economy until no longer needed. The ruler, Chief, takes his guidance from gigantic effigies of a man and a woman in the heart of the Fence. They warn him of trouble to come, but who is the person to watch? Is it the elusive Eckmann, holed up with the last functioning plane at LAX; Shannon Squier, the chisel-wielding pop superstar from the pre-NK3 world, pulled from the shambling masses; a treacherous member of Chief’s inner circle; or Hopper, the uncommon Drifter compelled by an inner voice to search for a wife whose name and face he doesn’t know? Each threatens to upset the delicate power balance in this fragile world. In deliciously dark prose, Tolkin winds a noose-like plot around this melee of despots, prophets, and rebels as they struggle for command and survival in a town that still manages to exert a magnetic force, even as a ruined husk.

About to be adopted by retired FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, and his partner, Rainie Conner, Sharlah loves one thing best about her new family: they are all experts on monsters. Is he a killer? Then the call comes in. A double-murder at a local gas station, followed by reports of an armed suspect shooting his way through the wilds of Oregon.

All she knows for sure: he’s back. As the clock winds down on a massive hunt for Telly, Quincy and Rainie must answer two critical questions: Why after eight years has this young man started killing again? And what does this mean for Sharlah? Once upon a time, Sharlah’s big brother saved her life. Now, she has two questions of her own: is her brother a hero, or a killer? And how much will it cost her new family before they learn the final, shattering truth? Because as Sharlah knows all too well, the biggest danger is the one standing right behind you.

Taut and terrifying, Snowblind is a startling debut from an extraordinary new talent.

    Please make a list of every possession you consider essential to your life. The request seems odd, and the questions on the renter’s application intrusive, but Jane Cavendish is looking for a new beginning after a devastating personal tragedy. One Folgate Street is beautiful—a sleek, minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. It’s also a technological marvel, wired to learn an occupant’s routine and anticipate his or her needs. The home’s owner and architect, Edward Monkford, approves prospective renters in person—if he agrees to see them at all. From the moment Jane meets Edward she’s drawn to him. Edward is confident, sexy, restrained, direct—a perfectionist with impeccable manners and expensive tastes. The interview feels charged, or is it just Jane’s imagination? Regardless, she must have done something right. Her application is accepted, and shortly after her move, Edward makes his. He and Jane become lovers. She feels herself letting go as the architect takes control. By design. There are rules, some of which Jane starts to break. Jane soon learns about the previous tenant at One Folgate Street: Emma Matthews, who died under suspicious circumstances. Despite Edward’s protests, and for secret motives of her own, Jane starts digging into Emma’s damaged past, trying to untangle truth from lies and piece together the puzzle of Emma’s life—all the while following the same patterns, making the same choices, crossing paths with the same people, and experiencing the same terror, as the girl before.From the Hardcover edition.
