"A sock-'em stand-alone...The red herrings come fast and furious."--People (Pick of the Week)

They never see me coming. . .because I'm already there.

Dr. Eric Parrish, a brilliant and caring psychiatrist, has been unknowingly targeted by a sociopath. His hands are already full, having recently separated from his wife and trying his best to be a single dad to his seven-year-old daughter. And now Eric faces a new challenge in the form of a troubled teenaged boy who harbors an obsessive crush on a girl. Because of secrets that this boy divulges in therapy, Eric grows concerned for the girl's safety and becomes embroiled in a dangerous dilemma: Should he report his potentially dangerous patient to the authorities?

Just as Eric reaches his decision, the unimaginable happens. . .and the game is on. The clock begins ticking, and Eric finds himself plunged into a living nightmare--and at the hands of a sociopath bent on destroying his practice, his family, and his life.

"Lisa Scottoline has plenty of tricks up her sleeve."

Man Who Lived Underground
$22.95
A major literary event: an explosive, previously unpublished novel from the 1940s by the legendary author of Native Son and Black Boy

Fred Daniels, a Black man, is picked up by the police after a brutal double murder and tortured until he confesses to a crime he did not commit. After signing a confession, he escapes from custody and flees into the city's sewer system.

This is the devastating premise of this scorching novel, a masterpiece that Richard Wright was unable to publish in his lifetime. Written between his landmark books Native Son (1940) and Black Boy (1945), at the height of his creative powers, it would eventually see publication only in drastically condensed and truncated form in the posthumous collection Eight Men (1961).

Now, for the first time, by special arrangement with the author's estate, the full text of this incendiary novel about race and violence in America, the work that meant more to Wright than any other ("I have never written anything in my life that stemmed more from sheer inspiration"), is published in the form that he intended, complete with his companion essay, "Memories of My Grandmother." Malcolm Wright, the author's grandson, contributes an afterword.
