            A lost world. An ancient code. A deadly chase. Five ancient statues have been unearthed in South America, each containing a mysterious coded message hinting at an origin many thought impossible: the mythical world of Atlantis. As word of their discovery spreads, the prized figuri...nes become a treasure bounty hunters will kill for. CIA agent Heidi Moneymaker calls in the only team for the job: Guy Bodie and his posse of relic-hunting thieves. If they are to find the ancient civilization, Bodie and his team must decode a series of clues-starting with the cipher on the statues themselves-that will take them across the world and to the deepest depths of the ocean. But they are not alone in their mission. Pursued by mysterious forces intent on keeping the legendary empire hidden, hunted by Chinese special forces and the team's own lethal foe, the Bratva, a race ensues to find the lost land-and Bodie's enemies will stop at nothing to be the first to discover Atlantis's secrets.

            An avid member of the Hitler Youth in 1940s Vienna, Johannes Betzler discovers his parents are hiding a Jewish girl named Elsa behind a false wall in their home. His initial horror turns to interest--then love and obsession. After his parents disappear, Johannes is the only one a...ware of Elsa's existence in the house and the only one responsible for her survival. By turns disturbing and blackly comic, haunting and cleverly satirical, Christine Leunens's captivating and masterful novel--sold in 16 countries and the basis for a major forthcoming film by Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnorak, What We Do in the Shadows)--examines this world of truth and lies, laying bare the darkest corners of the human soul.

            Now a National Bestseller. What if the Russians really are colluding with Americans...on the left? #1 New York Times bestselling author Newt Gingrich makes his return to political fiction with this rollicking tale of high-stakes international intrigue-the first book in a new, con...temporary series, filled with adventure, betrayal, and politics-that captures the tensions and divides of America and the world today. Valerie Mayberry is the FBI's counterintelligence expert on domestic terrorism. Brett Garrett is a dishonorably discharged ex-Navy SEAL, now a gun for hire, working as a security contractor in Eastern Europe. When a high ranking Kremlin official must be smuggled out of Russia, Mayberry and Garrett are thrown together to exfiltrate him and preempt a deadly poisonous strike. As these unlikely partners work to protect their human asset, their mission is threatened by domestic politics: leftist protests, congressional infighting, and a culture riven by hatred. Collusion raises many of the most significant issues facing America in real life today. How big a threat is Russia? Are American leftist activists susceptible to influence from abroad? How far will our enemies go to disrupt our politics and weaken the nation? Can we trust the media to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys? Newt Gingrich and Pete Earley have entertained and educated readers with three previous works. From its explosive opening through several twists and turns to its heart-stopping end, Collusion is their most timely and powerful novel yet.

            From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. Marie Laure lives with her father ...in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure's agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall. In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Doerr's gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work --

            In 1939, Helene, young, naive and recently married, waves goodbye to her husband, who has enlisted in the British army. Her home Guernsey is soon invaded by the Germans, who remain there for the length of the war. Forty years later, her daughter Roz begins a search for the truth ...about her father, and stumbles into the secret history of her mother's life, and the painful choices she made to survive the Nazi occupation. Island Song vividly evokes the war years in Guernsey, delving into the psychological toll of living with the enemy. Written with emotional acuity and passionate intensity, it speaks to the moral complexities of war-time allegiances, the hidden trauma for women during wartime, and asks whether, and how, we can claim ownership of our own stories.
