The Black Box by Michael Connelly

In a case that spans 20 years, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved.

 “Another superb, ambitious murder mystery from one of the best writers in the business, featuring perhaps the best fictional detective in crime fiction.” —Toronto Globe and Mail

The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

Rowling, author of the mega-selling Harry Potter series, has written her very first book for adults.

“A study of provincial life, with a large cast and multiple, interlocking plots, drawing inspiration from Elizabeth Gaskell and George Eliot...The Casual Vacancy immerses the reader in a richly peopled, densely imagined world...intelligent, workmanlike, and often funny.” —The Guardian (UK)

2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson

Nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula awards, Kim Stanley Robinson’s fantastic novel gives readers an awe-inspiring vision of our solar system 300 years from now.

“A brilliant, plausible account of how humans might colonize planets, moons and asteroids, 2312 is also about the future of art and family.” —NPR

Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe

Wolfe's first novel in eight years is set in contemporary Miami and depicts the many flavors of the new American melting pot.

“Within a masterfully strategized plot, Wolfe works his sardonic mojo to mock both prejudice and decadence and demolish the art world, reality TV, tawdry fame, and journalism in the digital age…This is a shrewd, riling, and exciting tale of a volatile, diverse, sun-seared city.” —Booklist, starred review
