Did You Ever Have A Family: A Novel

by Bill Clegg

"It has been some time since a book has affected me quite the way this novel has. I was struck by the authentic portrayal of characters that moved beyond the pages and made me see human beings in a whole new way. A tragedy of great proportion sets in motion an unraveling of lives, an examination of what people hold dear, and a recognition of how relationships with those closest are the most important facets of life. I really lived with these characters for the brief time I was reading this book.

by Ruth Ware

"This book has all the trappings of a good English mystery -- an approaching storm, an isolated house, mysterious footprints, and a group of relative strangers all locked in together. Ware's characters are playfully crafted, and just as you think they're becoming a cliche, they do something totally unexpected. In a Dark, Dark Wood is a titillating exploration of the classic tropes, layered with the complex style and hard edges found in the best modern thrillers. Highly recommended.

"In her debut novel, Clifford deftly updates The House of Mirth to show that belonging to the social elite is still not for the faint of heart. Evelyn Beegan has grown up on the fringes of high society, but now a new job at an exclusive social networking website may be her ticket to the lush life. Just as Wharton's Lily Bart learns the hard way, fitting in with the 'who's who' takes some shrewd negotiation. Is it worth the compromise just to prove you're worthy to be 'somebody'.

by Peter Robinson
Search for book Search for ebook Search for audiobook
"In the Dark Places, Robinson's 22nd Inspector Banks novel, is still rich in the landscape and culture of Yorkshire. Still populated with characters moving through their lives, reacting to events, reaching for experiences, skills, relationships -- and justice for victims. Still ingeniously plotted, challenging even the astute reader to keep up through the nerve-racking suspense. Still flush with the musicality of Robinson's prose and with the love of music that is so much a part of Banks' personality.
