      Description

      Lieutenant Eve Dallas encounters her toughest case yet when New York’s wealthiest couples are the targets of a calculated killer inEchoes in Death, a crime thriller from #1New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb.

      When the young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—wanders in front of their car, Roarke slams on the brakes just in time, and Eve—still in glittering gown and heels—springs into action. It’s been a long night for the tired homicide cop, and it’s far from over.

      Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock, the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil.”

      While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked—and that he treated Daphne like a trophy wife—this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse as the first suspect. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

      What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?

      Description

      Set in Minnesota,Gone to Dust is theNew York Timesbestselling debut private eye murder mystery from Emmy Award-winning Seinfeld writer Matt Goldman.

      “Sharp wit, complex characters, and masterful plotting makes Goldman a writer to watch. Irreverent and insightful, private detective Nils Shapiro is sure to become a fan favorite.”—Harlan Coben,New York Timesbestselling author

      A brutal crime. The ultimate cover-up. How do you solve a murder with no useable evidence?

      Private detective Nils Shapiro is focused on forgetting his ex-wife and keeping warm during another Minneapolis winter when a former colleague, neighboring Edina Police Detective Anders Ellegaard, calls with the impossible.

      Suburban divorcee Maggie Somerville was found murdered in her bedroom, her body covered with the dust from hundreds of emptied vacuum cleaner bags, all potential DNA evidence obscured by the calculating killer.

      Digging into Maggie’s cell phone records, Nils finds that the most frequently called number belongs to a mysterious young woman whose true identity could shatter the Somerville family--but could she be guilty of murder?

      After the FBI demands that Nils drop the case, Nils and Ellegaard are forced to take their investigation underground, where the case grows as murky as the contents of the vacuum cleaner bags. Is this a strange case of domestic violence or something with far reaching, sinister implications?

      “A perfect blend of light touch and dark story—I want more of Nils Shapiro.” —Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author

      Description

      Featuring communist bunkers, burning gas craters and at least one sponge-rock fluorescent grotto built by Polish monks, this book reveals weird and wonderful sights the crowds don't reach.

      • We've all heard of India's Taj Mahal, but what about Karna Mata Temple? It's a building teeming with rats so revered they enjoy A-list treatment with daily offerings of milk and fruit.
      • It's no secret that visitors to Berlin can see parts of its infamous Wall still standing in the city. Not so many people know that segments of the wall have travelled all around the world and can be found in places including Los Angeles, Japan and Iceland.
      • Stonehenge is one of the UK's most popular tourist sites. So why not beat the crowds and head to Nebraska instead, where you can marvel at a Carhenge - a replica of the great monolith site constructed entirely from vintage cars.

      This packed and fascinating title takes its readers ona journey through the world's lesser known marvels. Dive into an underworld of the planet's most surprising, fun, perplexing, kitsch and downright bizarre sights - and explore human stories and mysterious happenings that you won't find inside a regular guidebook.

      From eerie natural wonders to historical oddities and bizarre architecture, this is a travel companion for the incurably curious.

      About Lonely Planet: Since 1973, Lonely Planet has become the world's leading travel media company with guidebooks to every destination, an award-winning website, mobile and digital travel products, and a dedicated traveller community.

      "With this beautiful coffee-table guide to three hundred and sixty little known places, Lonely Planet does what it does best: gets you off the beaten path."
      "The world is a big place, full of hidden gems and weird wonders. If you’re looking for something off the beaten path — way off the beaten path — check out Lonely Planet’s new book."
      "These hidden gems still pack an awe-inspiring punch, but with a fraction of the tourists. Luckily, Lonely Planet — whose trusty guidebooks have informed the journeys of countless travelers for decades — is shining a light on under-the-radar places with its latest book...Featuring 360 unusual destinations around the world, this book will challenge even the most intrepid travelers, no matter how long they’ve been on the road."
      "It’s baffling why cities and countries spend so much effort promoting their features that are, well, nice — and pleasant and predictable. Far more captivating are the attractions that are bizarre, unexpected, unexplainable and unthinkable. It is the latter group that make up the bulk of Lonely Planet’s Secret Marvels of the World (304 pages, $25), a bathroom reader packed with the planet’s least likely features, both natural and made by humans. Editors have organized the 360extraordinary places you never knew existed into individual sites (based on bands of longitude), as well as Top 10 lists — top ossuaries, top micronations, top unsettling hotels (including Karosta Prison in Liepaja, Latvia, where guests are locked up) — and a handful of itineraries that cover a group of marvels in a single region. (One unpredictable touch: black-and-white sketches throughout that add whimsy.) Readers learn something new with each page."
      "Satisfying for armchair travelers and seasoned explorers alike."
      "This is a good resource for browsing at will, referencing specific locations via the handy index, and letting readers’ dream-trip imaginations run wild."
      "Latitude and longitude coordinates will be your guide to finding “Secret Marvels of the World,” published by Lonely Planet. More than 50 authors reveal “360 extraordinary places you never knew existed.”...Architecture and library connoisseurs may want to visit the diamond-shaped National Library of Belarus in Minsk that contains 3.5 million documents, is more than 236 feet tall and glitters like a diamond with light at night."

      Description
      A declaration of independence, and a call for systemic change, from the generation that will be most impacted by climate change. If anyone doubted the potential political power of the Millennial generation, Bernie Sanders' campaign put it in the spotlight. Are We Screwed? makes clear that the ardor for change defines this generation, especially when it comes to climate change, and they are willing to consider options that their elders might think naive and impractical, rejecting a capitalism that cares only about profit and a political system riven by false ideology. In telling the stories of his contemporaries around the globe, in describing how they think and the many ways they are already effecting change, Geoff Dembicki documents a historic shift in values and a corresponding re-thinking of how social change can happen. As of this year, the millennial generation (18- to 34-year-olds) will become North America's largest demographic. It is also the generation that has lived with the looming reality of global warming and will be most affected by its impacts. In vividly reported dispatches from Beijing to Paris, from San Francisco to New York, Dembicki examines what millennial responses to climate change look like and how they are shaping our future. He also provides an essential perspective on how climate change is intensifying generational tensions and shifts in society. In the process, a portrait of a generation emerges that goes a long way toward re-branding it in ways that are positive and full of hope for the future.
      Bio

He was awarded a 2012-2013 media fellowship from the Asia-Pacific Foundation of Canada and moderated a sold-out David Suzuki Foundation event on climate change and democracy.

      “Penny’s absorbing, intricately plotted 13th Gamache novel proves she only gets better at pursuing dark truths with compassion and grace.” —PEOPLE

      “Louise Penny wrote the book on escapist mysteries.” —The New York Times Book Review

      “You won't want Louise Penny's latest to end….Any plot summary of Penny’s novels inevitably falls short of conveying the dark magic of this series.... It takes nerve and skill — as well as heart — to write mysteries like this. ‘Glass Houses,’ along with many of the other Gamache books, is so compelling that, for the space of reading it, you may well feel that much of what’s going on in the world outside the novel is ‘just noise.’” —Maureen Corrigan,The Washington Post

      When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead.

      From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.

      But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.

      Months later, on a steamy July day as the trial for the accused begins in Montréal, Chief Superintendent Gamache continues to struggle with actions he set in motion that bitter November, from which there is no going back. More than the accused is on trial. Gamache’s own conscience is standing in judgment.

      InGlass Houses, her latest utterly gripping book, number-oneNew York Times bestselling author Louise Penny shatters the conventions of the crime novel to explore what Gandhi called the court of conscience. A court that supersedes all others.

      “You won't want Louise Penny's latest to end….Any plot summary of Penny’s novels inevitably falls short of conveying the dark magic of this series.... It takes nerve and skill — as well as heart — to write mysteries like this.”
      —Maureen Corrigan,The Washington Post

      “Ms. Penny has a gift for linking the mundane to the mythic. Steadfast, civilized and grimly determined, Gamache becomes a heraldic figure, as brave and cunning as the hero of an Icelandic saga, and the contemporary evils he battles have apocalyptic overtones....[With a] cinematic finale, in which the book’s well-laid and carefully sustained suspense is at last released.” —Tom Nolan,Wall Street Journal

      “Outstanding....On all counts, ‘Glass Houses’ succeeds brilliantly, full of elegant prose, intricate plots, and—most of all—Penny’s moving, emotionally complex hero and his circle of friends and colleagues.”
      The Seattle Times

      “Penny—whose books wind up on Best Novels of the Year lists, not 'just' Best Mysteries—is a one-woman argument against literary snobbery....Top notch....Penny is a master of the slow burn, with readers only seeing the final pattern as everything is set aflame.” —Christian Science Monitor

      “In the most intriguing installment yet….Louise Penny deftly combines crime and punishment, a timeless avenger and a dark exploration of the conscience….A great and twisting tale, as we’ve come to expect from the previous 12 Gamache novels, but also an exploration of moral judgments, mental frailty and the eerie notion of reckoning: We all must pay our debts…A profound story.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

      “Penny's latest is one of her best ever. From the very first page, when Gamache begins his testimony in a court case, the reader is riveted....I couldn't stop reading. This is the perfect holiday weekend book.”
      —Margaret Cannon,The Globe and Mail

      Gamache will face life-changing questions about the nature of guilt and innocence and the thin blue line separating law and conscience, leaving the reader contemplating these conundrums well after the final page has been turned.” —BookPage (Top Pick in Mystery)

      “With grace and insight…Penny has pushed the boundaries of the genre with each novel, and ‘Glass Houses’ takes them still further. With an intricate and intelligent storyline, cherished characters, a setting that cries out ‘come live here’ and a terrifying climax, she produces another stellar literary novel. And she does so with compassion, decency and love as she depicts evil, exalts courage and neither flinches nor preaches as she confronts moral ambiguities—and the health andsickness within each soul.”
      Richmond Times-Dispatch

      “Louise Penny steers the complex plot… to a white-knuckle ending….If it is conceivable for Penny to top herself, she has done so in this soul-searching, psychologically insightful journey into each of her memorable characters.” —Bookreporter.com

      “The tension has never been greater…A meticulously built mystery that follows a careful ascent toward a breaking point that will leave you breathless. It’s Three Pines as you have never seen it before.”
      Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

      “Three Pines is a sublime metaphor for the precariousness of harmony wherever we find it...one of the most entrancing fictional worlds in popular literature.” —Booklist(starred review)

      “The award-winning Penny does not rest on her laurels with this challenging and timely book. Though touched by the evils of the outside world, Three Pines remains a singular place away from time.”
      —Library Journal (starred review)

      “Penny’s poetic style of writing and her deeply realized characters, with their mix of flaws and heroism, make her novels irresistible….Penny delicately explores the tension of an officer who may be sworn to uphold the law, but who feels compelled to do something else, in a fascinating novel that is sure to appeal to a variety of readers—whether they typically enjoy mysteries or not.” —ShelfAwareness

      “An exciting, high-stakes climax.”— Publishers Weekly

      Description

      Shy Dylan arrives at a summer arts camp and immediately connects with flamboyant Coral. They bond over the aquatic theme of the camp and a drive to create comic books. The two girls plan a comic book about lifeguards who are transformed into mermaids and fight for eco-justice in the sea.

      At first Dylan wishes she could be more outgoing, like Coral. But Coral's tendency to appear loud and foolish pushes Dylan back behind the scenes, where she has always been comfortable. When Coral draws the attention of the camp mean girls and a boy who is determined to prank the camp's final show, Dylan has a decision to make. Should she stay on the bullies' good side, or should she step out of her comfort zone to save Coral and the show?

      Using comic-book illustrations starring Dylan's and Coral's alter egos, this book combines humorous text with an exciting but quite real-life comic-book adventure.

      "Readers will identify with Dylan's difficulties in navigating social situations ... The combination of graphic novel and chapter book, as well as the short chapters and appealing narrative make Mermaid Warrior Squad an excellent choice for reluctant readers."
      "Though the plot is somewhat predictable, the characters are well developed and will appeal to readers who may see themselves (or a friend) in Dylan and Coral. The struggles Dylan faces with bullies, identity and shyness are age appropriate and well written."
      "Humor fans will enjoy the relatable characters and comic strip action scenes in this [Illustrated Humour series."
