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.

Monogamy

Monogamy
$28.99

A brilliantly insightful novel, engrossing and haunting, about marriage, love, family, happiness and sorrow, from New York Times bestselling author Sue Miller.

Graham and Annie have been married for nearly thirty years. A golden couple, their seemingly effortless devotion has long been the envy of their circle of friends and acquaintances.

Graham is a bookseller, a big, gregarious man with large appetites--curious, eager to please, a lover of life, and the convivial host of frequent, lively parties at his and Annie's comfortable house in Cambridge. Annie, more reserved and introspective, is a photographer. She is about to have her first gallery show after a six-year lull and is worried that the best years of her career may be behind her. They have two adult children; Lucas, Graham's son with his first wife, Frieda, works in New York. Annie and Graham's daughter, Sarah, lives in San Francisco. Though Frieda is an integral part of this far-flung, loving family, Annie feels confident in the knowledge that she is Graham's last and greatest love.

When Graham suddenly dies--this man whose enormous presence has seemed to dominate their lives together--Annie is lost. What is the point of going on, she wonders, without him?

Then, while she is still mourning him intensely, she discovers that Graham had been unfaithful to her; and she spirals into darkness, wondering if she ever truly knew the man who loved her.

Pull of the Stars

product image
$28.00
In Dublin, 1918, a maternity ward at the height of the Great Flu is a small world of work, risk, death, and unlooked-for love, in "Donoghue's best novel since Room" (Kirkus Reviews)

In an Ireland doubly ravaged by war and disease, Nurse Julia Power works at an understaffed hospital in the city center, where expectant mothers who have come down with the terrible new Flu are quarantined together. Into Julia's regimented world step two outsiders -- Doctor Kathleen Lynn, a rumoured Rebel on the run from the police, and a young volunteer helper, Bridie Sweeney.

In the darkness and intensity of this tiny ward, over three days, these women change each other's lives in unexpected ways. They lose patients to this baffling pandemic, but they also shepherd new life into a fearful world. With tireless tenderness and humanity, carers and mothers alike somehow do their impossible work.

In The Pull of the Stars, Emma Donoghue once again finds the light in the darkness in this new classic of hope and survival against all odds.

Red Pill

Red Pill
$27.95
From the widely acclaimed author of White Tears, a bold new novel about searching for order in a world that frames madness as truth.

After receiving a prestigious writing fellowship in Germany, the narrator of Red Pill arrives in the Berlin suburb of Wannsee and struggles to accomplish anything at all. Instead of working on the book he has proposed to write, he takes long walks and binge-watches Blue Lives--a violent cop show that becomes weirdly compelling in its bleak, Darwinian view of life--and soon begins to wonder if his writing has any value at all.

Wannsee is a place full of ghosts: Across the lake, the narrator can see the villa where the Nazis planned the Final Solution, and in his walks he passes the grave of the Romantic writer Heinrich von Kleist, who killed himself after deciding that "no happiness was possible here on earth." When some friends drag him to a party where he meets Anton, the creator of Blue Lives, the narrator begins to believe that the two of them are involved in a cosmic battle, and that Anton is "red-pilling" his viewers--turning them toward an ugly, alt-rightish worldview--ultimately forcing the narrator to wonder if he is losing his mind.

Seven Lies

Seven Lies
$26.00
"Scalpel-sharp writing and a killer concept-dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured."
--Lucy Foley, author of The Guest List, a Hello Sunshine x Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick

"Seven Lies is a relentless, chilling story of what happens when friendship becomes obsession. Keep the lights on--you'll be turning pages deep into the night with this one."
--Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away

It all started with just one little lie. But we all know that it never ends there. Because, of course, one lie leads to another...

Growing up, Jane and Marnie shared everything. They knew the other's deepest secrets. They wouldn't have had it any other way. But when Marnie falls in love, things begin to change.

Because Jane has a secret: she loathes Marnie's wealthy, priggish husband. So when Marnie asks if she likes him, Jane tells her first lie. After all, even best friends keep some things to themselves. If she had been honest, then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive today. . .

For, of course, it's not the last lie. In fact, it's only the beginning...

Seven Lies is Jane's confession of the truth--her truth. Compelling, sophisticated, chilling, it's a seductive, hypnotic pageturner about the tangled, toxic friendships between women, the dark underbelly of obsession and what we stand to lose in the name of love.
