"[A] provocative thriller.... Fans of Cory Doctorow's work should love this book."—Publishers Weekly, starred review


by King, Laurie R.

A short holiday tale from Laurie R. King... 

One evening in late 1921 or 1922, Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes are talking over the unexplored portions of their past.  A person might expect the older Holmes to have any number of these—but here, it is Russell who astonishes her husband with news of a previously unknown, even unsuspected, uncle.  Jake Russell: scoundrel, charmer, eternal youth.  What young girl could resist his charms?

by Katie Gilmartin

There are very few books that come as perfectly packaged as this one: Queer history, San Francisco, and a blackmail scam that goes all the way to the top are all wrapped around our genderfluid protagonist, Josie. Gilmartin leads us on a walking tour of queer SF, from the Castro to Fulton Street. If you love noir, Bay Area history (Santa Cruz gets a nod, too), and queers bashing back against police brutality, take a peek inside. --Louise

by Brooks Headley

When was the last time a cake recipe made you weep with laughter? Exactly. Brooks Headley punk dude, vegetarian sympathizer, stealth genius, hero to all in the New York pastry world has created something entirely new. It s a cookable memoir about his life in music and food (i.e., lots of time in basements), but not the kind they ll make a cute movie out of. And the art direction by Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin (of Eat Me: The Food & Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin notoriety) take the deadpan brilliance to another level. --Christine Muhlke, executive editor, Bon Appetit


by Dan Fesperman
A psychologically gripping descent into the eerie realm of drone warfare, led by one pilot's risky quest to expose its darkest secrets.
As an F-16 fighter pilot, Darwin Cole was a family man on top of his world. Now he's a washout-drunk and alone in a trailer in the Nevada desert, and haunted by what he saw on the display of the Predator drone he "piloted," especially by the memory of an Afghan child running for her life. He reluctantly teams up with three journalists seeking to discover the identity of the anonymous-and possibly rogue-intelligence operative who called the shots in Cole's ill-fated drone mission. But in a surveillance culture, even the well-intentioned must sometimes run for their lives, especially when they're tracking leads to the very heart of that culture-in intelligence, in the military, and among the unchecked private contractors who stand to profit richly from the advancing not just for use "over there," but for right here, right now.

by Laurie King

Devotees of the greatest of all fictional detectives will welcome this anthology from King and Klinger, who have assembled a murderers' row of talent, including bestselling authors not usually associated with Holmes and Watson. Only two stories are traditional pastiches; the other 13 pay homage to the spirit of the originals in very different ways. Michael Connelly's "The Crooked Man," in which Harry Bosch consults a coroner named Art Doyle, cleverly riffs on Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Crooked Man." A brilliant bipolar patient puts his gifts for Holmesian deduction to use while tracking a serial killer in Jeffrey Deaver's "The Adventure of the Laughing Fisherman." Cornelia Funke provides insights into Holmes's youth in her moving "Lost Boys," while an elderly Holmes plays a heroic role during WWII in John Lescroart's stirring "Dunkirk." Klinger himself weighs in with one of the more memorable entries, "The Closing," which offers a sophisticated variation on one of the most tragic canonical adventures. According to the editors' illuminating introduction, a similarly themed second volume is in the works.


by Matt Richtel

We all know texting while driving is dangerous. So why do we keep doing
it? Could it be that we *can't* stop the compulsion to stay connected;
that we are so over-stimulated by our social networks and pressured to
multitask that we are addicted, and in collective denial? A Deadly Wandering
is a riveting account of the fatal tragedy and subsequent seminal legal
(and moral) battle that led to texting-while-driving bans being signed
into law. It links neuroscience research, legal undertakings, and
narrative nonfiction—full of vivid, heartbreaking real-life
“characters”—to expose and objectively question our modern glorification
of multitasking and tech-connectedness. Richtel’s exceptional reporting
will absolutely change the way you think about the devices that keep us
online: you will close this book transformed. This is astonishing,
moving, eye-opening stuff—and a crucial conversation, as we grow
frighteningly more and more attached to our devices. One of the most
important books of our time. --Julia


by Joseph O'Neill

***LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014***The author of the best-selling and award-winning Netherland now gives us his eagerly awaited, stunningly different new novel: a tale of alienation and heartbreak in Dubai.Distraught by a breakup with his long-term girlfriend, our unnamed hero leaves New York to take an unusual job in a strange desert metropolis. In Dubai at the height of its self-invention as a futuristic Shangri-la, he struggles with his new position as the "family officer" of the capricious and very rich Batros family. And he struggles, even more helplessly, with the "doghouse," a seemingly inescapable condition of culpability in which he feels himself constantly trapped--even if he's just going to the bathroom, or reading e-mail, or scuba diving. A comic and philosophically profound
exploration of what has become of humankind's moral progress, The Dog is told with Joseph O'Neill's hallmark eloquence, empathy, and storytelling mastery. It is a brilliantly original, achingly funny fable for our globalized times.
