      Five women go on a hike. Only four return. Jane Harper, theNew York Times bestselling author ofThe Dry,asks: How well do you really know the people you work with?

      When five colleagues are forced to go on a corporate retreat in the wilderness, they reluctantly pick up their backpacks and start walking down the muddy path.

      But one of the women doesn’t come out of the woods. And each of her companions tells a slightly different story about what happened.

      Federal Police Agent Aaron Falk has a keen interest in the whereabouts of the missing hiker. In an investigation that takes him deep into isolated forest, Falk discovers secrets lurking in the mountains, and a tangled web of personal and professional friendship, suspicion, and betrayal among the hikers. But did that lead to murder?

      Force of Nature bristles with wit; it crackles with suspense; it radiates atmosphere. An astonishing book from an astonishing writer.”
      —A.J. Finn, author ofThe Woman in the Window

      "Compelling...Harper continues the intense plotting and detail for characters and setting that she established inThe Dry."
      —Associated Press

      "All of the novel's characters have been drawn with exceptional complexity, and none more so than Aaron Falk...So much more than a conventional detective, the reflective and compassionate Falk provides the book's moral compass."
      —New York Times Book Review

      “Secrets revealed as the investigation unfolds will keep readers guessing until the unlikely plot reveals itself in the last pages of the novel. Fans of her debut bookThe Dry will findForce of Nature lives up to the exciting expectations Harper is becoming known for building.”
      —Florida Times-Union

      Force ofNaturereinforces Harper’s gift for creating characters with complicated relationships and especially for writing about wild landscapes, where anything can happen.”
      LitHub

      “Even more impressive thanThe Dry…An almost unbearable level of suspense…Nature is a hostile, unpredictable force in both of Harper’s novels, but her brilliance lies in making it into a test of horribly fallible human nature.”
      Sunday Times

      “While the plot unfolds at an expertly controlled pace and is resolved in a satisfyingly ambiguous fashion, it is the relationships between the women that drive the novel…Thoughtful, moving, troubling.”
      —Irish Times

      "Both novels are intense, deeply intelligent psychological thrillers that explore how our pasts – especially our childhoods – mold and disrupt our lives in the present."
      —Christian Science Monitor

      "Riveting, tension-driven thriller…Perfect for fans of Tana French and readers who enjoy literary page-turners.”
      Booklist, starred review

      “Harper’s crackerjack plotting propels the story…Harper layers her story with hidden depths, expertly mining the distrust between Alice and her four colleagues, and the secrets that simmer under the surface…A spooky, compelling read.”
      Kirkus

      “Stellar… The briefest dip into the prologue results in stomach-tightening anticipation that begs the reader to continue… [Harper] infuses the narrative with energy and atmosphere as Falk plumbs professional and personal relationships for clues to Alice's fate.”
      Shelf Awareness

      "Set against the fascinating backdrop of a wild, rural location in south Australia...Presents an intriguing crime that might not actually exist and potential suspects with realistically complex personalities and possible motives. The two story lines, past and present, collide with a satisfying yet not gratuitous conclusion."
      Library Journal

      “A gripping tale of an elemental battle for survival…Harper once again shows herself to be a storytelling force to be reckoned with.”
      Publishers Weekly

      “Jane Harper is a must-read writer, and Aaron Falk is the Harry Bosch of the outback.Force Of Nature is a remarkable hybrid of suspense, wilderness survival, memorable characters, and gorgeous writing.”
      —Michael Koryta,New York Timesbestselling author of Those Who Wish Me Dead

      “I lovedThe Dry.Force of Nature is even better. Brilliantly paced, it wrong-foots the reader like a rocky trail through the bush. I adored it.”
      —Susie Steiner, bestselling author ofMissing, Presumed andPersons Unknown

      “A major voice in contemporary fiction. Like Tana French's Dublin Murder Squad series and Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie novels, Jane Harper's deftly plotted mysteries double as sensitive inquiries into human nature, behavior, and psychology. And likeThe Dry,Force of Nature bristles with wit; it crackles with suspense; it radiates atmosphere. An astonishing book from an astonishing writer.”
      —A.J. Finn, author ofThe Woman in the Window

      “Lord of the Flies in the Australian outback, with grown women in place of school boys. I loved every chilling moment of it. A blistering follow-up to The Dryfrom one of the best new voices in crime fiction.”
      —Sarah Hilary, author of the bestselling DI Marnie Rome series

      “Manages to be two things at once. It's a financially skewed police procedural with a likeable detective with his own personal trajectory at its heart, and it's something of a "locked room mystery". The fact that the "locked room" is neither in a vicarage, nor on an island, but somewhere in the claustrophobic vastness of the Australian bush rendersForce of Natureall the more original and engaging.”
      Sydney Morning Herald

      “As thick with menace as the bush that seems to swallow the difficult Alice…Force of Nature cuts between past and present, corporate and domestic, and cements its author as one of Australia’s boldest thriller writers.” —Australian Women’s Weekly

      "The narrative is finely constructed, with perfectly measured pace and suspense. So much so that it reminded me of another master of form, Liane Moriarty...There are echoes ofPicnic at Hanging Rock andLord of the Flies as any appearance of civility slips away and the women lose direction in a hostile landscape."
      The Saturday Paper (Aus)

      "Harper’s mastery of pace makesForce Of Nature one of 2017’s best thrillers."
      Elle (Aus)

      "Gripping thriller will have readers hooked."
      Sunday Telegraph

      "Force of Nature proves Jane Harper, author ofThe Dry, is no one-hit wonder. Its premise is instantly gripping."

In the person of this intriguing young woman, the Connollys may have a chance to expand who they are and how much they can love, or they may be making themselves vulnerable to menace.

      In a wild, remote corner of Alaska, the Allbrights find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the newcomers’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources.

      But as winter approaches and darkness descends, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own.

      Description
      Already Here tells of the death of Leo Galland’s son, Christopher, at the age of 22; the direct visual evidence Christopher showed him that our souls do go on; and the communications he received from Christopher’s spirit that dramatically changed Leo’s understanding of life and its meaning. In life, Christopher was a brain-damaged special needs child who challenged everyone he knew with his unpredictable behavior and uncanny insights. After his death, he revealed to Leo the real purpose of his life, as a spiritual guide who taught others by confounding their assumptions and expectations. And he began to share with Leo a new perspective on everything from the nature of good and evil to the concept of timelessness—"God’s moment"—to the notion that the universe is, fundamentally, an act of love. Christopher’s wisdom was revealed to Leo over the course of a year, coalescing into three themes, which Leo calls the Gift of the Opposite, the Gift of Presence, and the Gift of Timelessness. Leo quickly came to realize that these gifts were not for him alone: they contain ancient wisdom, held sacred in many traditions, that Chris intended him to share with others. He wrote this book, under Chris’s direction, to do just that.Already Here presents a unique dialogue in which an analytical, scientific mind tries to comprehend truths from another plane of existence—one that, nonetheless, is inseparable from our own. Chris describes Heaven and Earth, spirit and matter, as unified opposites that cannot exist without each other and cannot be separated from human consciousness. The book takes its title from Christopher’s final message to Leo, in which he describes Heaven as an "eternal present" where everyone is together, even those of us still living earthly lives. "Lighten up," Christopher says to his father. "You’re already here, you know."

      "Leo Galland brings us on a journey of the heart, infinite awareness, and discovery."
      — Deepak Chopra, M.D., author of You Are the Universe

      "Dr. Leo Galland, a respected global leader in the field of holistic medicine, has written an astounding book of revelations about the nature of heaven and earth, loss and pain, and love. All guided by the spirit of his special-needs son, Chris, who died at the age of 22. I read the entire book in one unforgettable afternoon and was profoundly moved. You don’t want to miss this one."
      — Christiane Northrup, M.D., #1 New York Times best-selling author

      "Climbing inside the human brain is a daunting assignment, one that is made even more challenging when that brain is damaged. This is what makes Already Here—Leo Galland’s searingly personal account of the life and death of his 22-year-old special-needs son, Christopher—such a gripping and triumphant story. Part intimate memoir, part spiritual guidebook, Galland’s heartfelt chronicle of his family’s journey through their ordeal is a spellbinding exploration of life after death, and a bracing reminder of the indestructible power of a father’s love. At one point in the story, Galland underscores the impact Christopher had on his family, recalling his brother once saying, ‘I really need a dose of Christopher.’ Just one day after finishing this remarkable and inspiring book, I found myself longing for another dose of Christopher, too."
      — Marlo Thomas, award-winning actress, producer, activist, and best-selling author of Free to Be . . . You and Me

      "Already Here is an amazing journey from the rational to the intuitive, living in the moment, birthed by love, pain, and loss. When I finished, I looked at adversity and time differently and decided to surrender with joy."
      — Susan Sarandon, mother, activist, and Academy Award–winning actress

      "Already Here is a heart-touching story of how love transcends death and that those who pass never leave without leaving something behind for us to continue living with. Christopher is a beacon and wise soul who has and continues to touch many from his life in the spirit world. I found this story food for my soul."
      — James Van Praagh, spiritual teacher and New York Times best-selling author of The Power of Love

      "Already Here is an awe-inspiring after-death communication received by a medical doctor from his son Christopher who had crossed over after a fatal accident. Soon after, signs began to appear and Chris began speaking to his father, imparting his knowledge and wisdom about the purpose of life. This inspiring book is an education for living—about how to enjoy life to its fullest, transforming anger and hate into love, about being human, and how love transcends physical death."
      — Anita Moorjani, New York Times best-selling author of Dying to Be Me and What If This Is Heaven?

      "I’ve known Leo Galland for many years as having one of the most brilliant medical minds for solving complex problems. Already Here reveals his personal journey beyond medicine into the deeper world of spirit, arising from the passing of his son. It’s a journey of true healing and wisdom profoundly presented. I couldn’t put it down."
      — Stephan Rechtschaffen, M.D., founder of Blue Spirit Costa Rica and co-founder of Omega Institute

      "This is a beautiful book to read gently, allowing emotional response to the written events as they unfold peacefully. It’s a winner!"
      — Judith Stanton, co-author of Emmanuel’s Book

      "Words can’t capture the ineffable experience of Presence, which is timeless and eternal, more closely than Dr. Leo Galland in Already Here. This is a heartwarming and eloquent description of that experience, which is all the more extraordinary because his training as a highly rational mind allows him to integrate, understand, and explain the personal meaning of such an experience."

      Description

      From Ausma Zehanat Khan,critically acclaimed author ofThe Unquiet Dead, comes the devastatingly powerful new thrillerA Dangerous Crossing.

      For Inspector Esa Khattak and Sergeant Rachel Getty, the Syrian refugee crisis is about to become personal. Esa’s childhood friend, Nathan Clare, calls him in distress: his sister, Audrey, has vanished from a Greek island where the siblings run an NGO. Audrey had been working to fast-track refugees to Canada, but now, she is implicated in the double-murder of a French Interpol agent and a young man who had fled the devastation in Syria.

      Esa and Rachel arrive in Greece to a shocking scene, witnessing for themselves the massive fallout of the Syrian war in the wretched refugee camps. Tracing Audrey’s last movements, they meet some of the volunteers and refugees—one of whom, Ali, is involved in a search of his own, for a girl whose disappearance may be connected to their investigation. The arrival of Sehr Ghilzai—a former prosecutor who now handles refugee claims for Audrey’s NGO—further complicates the matter for Esa, as his feelings towards her remain unresolved.

      Working against time, with Interpol at their heels, Esa and Rachel follow a trail that takes them from the beaches of Greece, to the Turkish–Syrian border, and across Europe, reaching even the corridors of power in the Netherlands. Had Audrey been on the edge of a dangerous discovery, hidden at the heart of this darkest of crises—one which ultimately put a target on her own back?

      New York Timesbestseller

      The only writer in history to win consecutive Edgar Awards for Best Novel,New York Timesbestselling author John Hart returns to the world of his most beloved novel,The Last Child

      Building on the world first seen inThe Last Child(“A magnificent creation” —The Washington Post), John Hart delivers a stunning vision of a secret world, rarely seen.

      It’s been ten years since the events that changed Johnny Merrimon’s life and rocked his hometown to the core. Since then, Johnny has fought to maintain his privacy, but books have been written of his exploits; the fascination remains. Living alone on six thousand acres of once-sacred land, Johnny’s only connection to normal life is his old friend, Jack. They’re not boys anymore, but the bonds remain. What they shared. What they lost.

      But Jack sees danger in the wild places Johnny calls home; he senses darkness and hunger, an intractable intent. Johnny will discuss none of it, but there are the things he knows, the things he can do. A lesser friend might accept such abilities as a gift, but Jack has felt what moves in the swamp: the cold of it, the unspeakable fear.

      More than an exploration of friendship, persistence, and forgotten power,The Hush leaves all categories behind, and cements Hart's status as a writer of unique power.

      Bio

      Praise forThe Hush

      “Ambitious and surprising... an engrossing, cumulatively disturbing narrative that encompasses murder, magic, madness, betrayal and obsessive, undying love. The result is unlike anything Hart has done before.” —Washington Post

      "A testament to friendship, an exploration of family, a meditation on slavery and its legacy, a lament on the prison of the past — and a grisly and gritty ghost story —The Hush displays Hart at his best. With richly imagined characters and depth of ingenuity, Hart forges a thoughtful and disturbing novel, one that delivers shocks in his story and joy in his storytelling. The author, who splits his time between North Carolina and Virginia, builds on his trademark take on the literary Southern gothic; the result is his most powerful work yet, one that plants a flag at the intersection where William Faulkner and Stephen King meet in unexpected harmony." —Richmond Times-Dispatch

      "[Hart] ranks right along with John Grisham and other outstanding writers of legal thrillers. And “The Hush” is, in part, a gripping legal thriller — but it is also a lot more.... Once again, Hart has given us not only a thriller of the highest order, but also a story about loyalty, friendship, family and love." —Greensboro News & Record

      "Chandler himself would be a big fan of John Hart for reasons clearly on display inThe Hush... Like Chandler, Hart is a brilliant novelist as well as mystery writer, a lyrical wordsmith as comfortable turning a phrase as tension-riddled screws." —Providence Journal

      “Hart’s career continues on its ever upward trajectory: five books, fiveNYT bestsellers, two Edgars, and steadily growing critical acclaim… [He] makes it six for six here, and behind this uncanny string of success is a rare ability to combine the most propulsive of popular fiction with beguilingly rich characters. The track record is enough on its own, but this time the idea of a sequel to a popular previous novel will have Hart’s fans squirming in anticipation." —Booklist (starred review)

      "Hart proves his reputation as an Edgar Award–winning wordsmith is well-deserved." —Library Journal

      "Ambitious and inventive,The Hushbrings to mind the work of a wide range of authors, including William Faulkner, John Grisham, and Michael Koryta. Besides his winning cast of human characters, Hart manages to bring Raven County and its environs to vivid life, imbuing it with a dark personality all its own. A worthy sequel to the outstandingThe Last Child..." —Mystery Scene

      "Hart continues to deepen his palette in this ambitious sequel, which is distinctive enough in story and tone to be read as a stand-alone. Recommended for fans of Dennis Lehane'sShutter Island and Tom Franklin'sCrooked Letter, Crooked Letter." —Library Journal

      "[Hart's writing is masterful and his books among the best." —Reviewing the Evidence

      "Although I seem never to have time to read, I am a helpless addict when a new book by John Hart is published. I’ve read every one with great pleasure. He’s the only author ever to win Best Novel Edgars back to back, though I wouldn’t have complained if he’d won five in a row....The Hush is a combination mystery, thriller, psychological suspense, and horror story, all neatly meshed by this master storyteller." —Otto Penzler, Favorite Book of March 2018, The Mysterious Bookshop (New York, NY)

      "Boy, what a story! Haven’t read Hart’s previous work but am intrigued now aboutThe Last Child. I raced through this. Found it thrilling, interesting, pulse increasing....pushed all the other books vying for my attention to one side and focused on this." —Jayne Guitart, Westwinds Bookstore (Duxbury, MA)

      "I tried. I really, really tried to read John Hart’s latest masterpiece slowly as to savor every word, but to no avail. The Hush is too captivating, too thrilling and simply an amazing feat of storytelling. I started reading at 4 and finished by 9. I marvel at John's talents."Sally Brewster, Park Road Books (Charlotte, NC)

      "John Hart is UNSTOPPABLE! He is a master storyteller and his latest is no exception! He keeps me up at night! The Hush continues the saga of Johnny Merrimon and his friend Jack fromThe Last Child. Ten years have passed since the drama of that story and more evil awaits Johnny and Jack. A mesmerizing tale that you have to read!! Loved it!!!!" —Stephanie Crowe, Page and Palette Books (Fairhope, AL)

      Praise for John Hart

      “John Hart can flat-out write.” —David Baldacci, #1New York Timesbestselling author

      “Hart is still far too young forThe Last Child to be called a crowning achievement, but the novel’s ambition, emotional breadth, and maturity make it an early masterpiece in a career that continues to promise great things.” —The Washington Post

      “Edgar Award winning John Hart cements his status as one of America’s premier novelists.” —The Providence Journal

      "With his trademark strength and deep insight, John Hart rolls out another masterpiece." — Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books

      'I love the richness of his stories and the paths this characters chose to in fact achieve some kind of redemption for the powerless." — Sheryl Cotleur, Cooperfield's Books

      "There’s a magic in his work...Hart creates characters your heart bleeds for...thoroughly worth a slow, attentive read." - Raleigh News & Observer

      "Hart proves once again that great thriller writers can also be great novelists, and he’s one of the very best in both categories. The lyrical beauty of Hart’s writing contrasts beautifully with the sordid despair that roils his characters." —Providence Journal onRedemption Road
