Overview

The first and only author to win back-to-back Edgars for Best Novel. Every book a "New York Times" bestseller. After five years, John Hart is back.

Since his debut bestseller, "The King of Lies," reviewers across the country have heaped praise on John Hart, comparing his writing to that of Pat Conroy, Cormac McCarthy and Scott Turow. Each novel has taken Hart higher on the "New York Times" Bestseller list as his masterful writing and assured evocation of place have won readers around the world and earned history's only consecutive Edgar Awards for Best Novel with "Down River" and "The Last Child." Now, Hart delivers his most powerful story yet.
Imagine:

A boy with a gun waits for the man who killed his mother.

A troubled detective confronts her past in the aftermath of a brutal shooting.

After thirteen years in prison, a good cop walks free as deep in the forest, on the altar of an abandoned church, a body cools in pale linen

This is a town on the brink.

This is Redemption Road.

Brimming with tension, secrets, and betrayal, "Redemption Road" proves again that John Hart is a master of the literary thriller."

Audio: The money trail

According to Forbes’ list of the richest people in America, Charles Koch is number four and his brother, David, is number five. Put their billions together, add their fervid belief in conservative-libertarian principles, their determination to make what had been fringe ideas part and parcel of the Republican Party’s thinking, their ability to create the multipronged structure to do it and the Citizens United decision, and you have a changed political scene in America. Jane Mayer’s fascinating, scrupulously researched Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, performed with competent composure by Kirsten Potter, details the Koch brothers’ background and Koch Industry’s ascendancy, adding much about the other billionaire players who belong to this secretive network of the super-wealthy. Timely investigative reporting at its best, Dark Money is especially vital during this long, unusual presidential campaign. 

AMAZING MAISIE
One of the best things about an ongoing series is that you know that the hero or, in this case, the heroine, will make it through no matter how tough the going gets. And in Jacqueline Winspear’s latest, Journey to Munich, convincingly read by Orlagh Cassidy, Maisie Dobbs takes on a risky mission for the British Secret Service. Since her beloved husband died flying an experimental plane and she miscarried their child, Maisie has been reflecting on her life and her future as she tries to find a path back to wholeness. Now in England after working as a nurse in the Spanish Civil War, Maisie agrees to go to Nazi Germany disguised as the daughter of a brilliant British industrialist imprisoned in Dachau for two years. The Brits have ransomed his release, but he must be escorted out by a family member. This is Munich in 1938—danger and intrigue are as much a part of the scene as the brown-shirted storm troopers, and Maisie, wearing an itchy wig and carrying a loaded gun in her handbag, must navigate Hitler’s sadistic henchmen. Maisie amazes, again.

TOP PICK IN AUDIO
Riveting, tour de force, gripping, unputdownable, propulsive—these are usually just clichés used to hype a new thriller. Not this time. Redemption Road, John Hart’s devastatingly dark new novel, is all of the above and more. And narrator Scott Shepherd’s perfectly paced, subtle Southern cadences make this a relentlessly compelling audio. Elizabeth Black, a North Carolina police detective, is at the center of a web of intricately woven subplots. She’s tough, talented, driven, but her deep emotional scars and total commitment to young victims can upend her judgment. Liz is under investigation for the overzealous shooting of two men who brutally raped a teenage girl; Adrian, a cop she loves who was wrongly convicted of a heinous murder, is paroled after 13 years; and someone’s on a killing spree modeled on the crime Adrian was blamed for. A lot of ends to tie up, a lot of redemption needed, and Hart does it with masterful aplomb.
