              In 1948, a nineteen-year old Japanese woman's dreams of spending her life pearl diving are shattered when she learns she has leprosy. She knows that the shame attached to the ancient disease is inescapable: rejection by her family is imminent, exile unavoidable. No more than two ...months elapse before authorities send her off to a leprosarium on the island of Nagashima and, although it is only seven miles from her home, it is a world away from all that is familiar to her. At once, she is instructed to forget her past, to strike her name from the family register, and ordered to choose a new name. As Miss Fuji looks around her. she sees her own future in the debilitated bodies and the lives of the more than two thousand other patients. But her future never comes, her own case of leprosy remains a mild one due to the discovery of a new medicine. Over time, her strength and appearance of normality separate her from those whom the disease has ravaged, and her connection to the sea is never broken. However she is not permitted to leave and she wonders whether she could even survive back on the mainland. Depicting the lives of the patients in a perfectly balanced combination of sympathy, kindness, and veracity, THE PEARL DIVER is written with exquisite precision and eloquence by the remarkable new talent Jeff Talarigo.

              Felipe de Castro, the vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town. It's the worst possible time for a human body to show up in Eric Northman's front yard-especially the body of a woman whose blood he just drank. Now it's up to Sookie and Bill, the official Are...a Five investigator, to solve the murder. Sookie thinks that, at least this time, the dead girl's fate has nothing to do with her. But she is wrong. She has an enemy, one far more devious than she would ever suspect, who's set out to make Sookie's world come crashing down.

              Miss Amity Doncaster, world traveler, is accustomed to adventure and risk. Benedict Stanbridge, a man of science and a spy for the Crown, has faced danger in the darker corners of foreign lands. But they are about to face a threat that is shockingly close to home. One does not ex...pect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight. But Amity Doncaster barely escapes with her life after she is trapped in a carriage with a blade-wielding man in a black silk mask who whispers the most vile taunts and threats into her ear. Her quick thinking, and her secret weapon, save her, for now. But the monster known in the press as the Bridegroom, who has left a trail of female victims in his wake, has survived the wounds she inflicts and will soon be on his feet again. He is unwholesomely obsessed by her scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge-gossip about their hours alone in a ship's stateroom seems to have crossed the Atlantic faster than any sailing vessel could. Benedict refuses to let this resourceful, daring woman suffer for her romantic link to him-as tenuous as it may be. For a man and woman so skilled at disappearing, so at home in the exotic reaches of the globe, escape is always an option. But each intends to end the Bridegroom's reign of terror in London, and will join forces to do so. And as they prepare to confront an unbalanced criminal in the heart of the city they love, they must also face feelings that neither of them can run away from.

              Max Tivoli is uniquely cursed. Although his mind and soul may nature as any other person's does, his body ages in reverse; born with the body of a seventy-year-old man, he grows physically younger with each passing year. His singular predicament forces him into hiding, in one for...m or another, for much of his life, though he does manage to find his one true love--Alice. Max crosses paths with Alice three times throughout the course of their lives: Once when he is a young man, swept up in the passion of first love and infatuation, while he is trapped within the body of a decrepit old man. Next, the two meet at Max's prime age, that brief time in his life when his true age is matched by his physical image he presents to the world. Finally, they are together when Alice is a middle-aged woman, caring for her young son and his orphaned friend--who is in fact Max under the guise of a twelve-year-old boy, although in his heart he is still her love. It's a first person narrative evoking the very nature of the human experience: love, loss, family, loyalty, friendship, growth, self-discovery, and sacrifice. Set largely against the backdrop of San Francisco at the turn of the 20th century. The Confessions of Max Tivoli finds its narrator present--though often on the sidelines--at some of the defining moments of the era, including the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 and World War I.

              From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new explosive, compelling thriller. With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon's final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: to keep h...is daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber-the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel's longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it's impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead. As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a nuclear explosion that will lay waste to the west coast, they also fight a growing attraction to each other - an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself. In this gripping, fast-paced novel full of dark secrets and tangled lies, one thing is clear: everyone has a vendetta, no one will rest until they get their revenge.
