"This year's Gone Girl."—Harlan Coben A Boston Globe Best Book of 2018 | A Sun-Sentinel Best Mystery Book of 2018 | A Crime Reads Best Novel of 2018 His Scandal Her Secret From New York Times bestselling author Alafair Burke, a stunning domestic thriller in the vein of Behind Closed Doors and The Woman in Cabin 10—in which a woman must make the impossible choice between defending her husband and saving herself. When Angela met Jason Powell while catering a dinner party in East Hampton, she assumed their romance would be a short-lived fling, like so many relationships between locals and summer visitors. To her surprise, Jason, a brilliant economics professor at NYU, had other plans, and they married the following summer. For Angela, the marriage turned out to be a chance to reboot her life. She and her son were finally able to move out of her mother’s home to Manhattan, where no one knew about her tragic past. Six years later, thanks to a bestselling book and a growing media career, Jason has become a cultural lightning rod, placing Angela near the spotlight she worked so carefully to avoid. When a college intern makes an accusation against Jason, and another woman, Kerry Lynch, comes forward with an even more troubling allegation, their perfect life begins to unravel. Jason insists he is innocent, and Angela believes him. But when Kerry disappears, Angela is forced to take a closer look—at both the man she married and the women she chose not to believe. This much-anticipated follow-up to Burke’s Edgar-nominated The Ex asks how far a wife will go to protect the man she loves: Will she stand by his side, even if he drags her down with him?

Loin de Kharkov by Roger Hanin Book Resume:

Bien sûr, il s'agit, encore, d'un roman farfelu, mais plus « policé » que d'habitude Et, bien sûr, les personnages de ce roman - Anna-Victorina, Abraham, Mme Tardieu - ne sont pas des créatures rigoureusement « réalistes » Mais c'est ainsi que Roger Hanin visite son imaginaire : introduire une dose de délire dans la logique du monde. Car le délire, selon lui, déplace la vérité et la montre mieux Avec Loin de Karkhov, on est donc dans une histoire d'adoption : un couple, natif de Béziers (en apparence ) va dans un orphelinat de Karkhov pour adopter la petite Anna-Victorina, blonde, intelligente, précoce Celle-ci va semer le plus grand trouble dans sa nouvelle famille, contraignant chacun à se rapprocher de sa vérité enfouie Les uns vont s'avouer leur amour secret, d'autres vont se suicider, d'autres encore vont accepter de révéler le secret d'une identité méticuleusement dissimulée « Lorsque l'enfant paraît », le monde des adultes réajuste ses manières. Ce roman aspire à l'innocence trouble de la petite Anne-Victorina. Il l'atteint, mais non sans quelques dégâts pour les personnages qui s'y brûlent sous l'oeil de la petite poupée russe. Sur cette trame, Roger Hanin propose un roman qui « dérape » à dessein. Dialogues et situations bizarres ; coups de théâtre ; onirisme et fansaisie garantis Roger Hanin expliquera peut-être, lors du lancement de ce roman, l'arrière-fond autobiographique qui le sous-tend. Mais, peut-être, préférera-t-il se taire. Avec lui, on ne sait jamais...

L'Intempérie by Louis Martinez Book Resume:

Un meurtre énigmatique dans un parking. Le narrateur est le témoin involontaire de sa mise en scène. Hanté par le souvenir de cet événement mais peut-être l'a-t-il rêvé , il se sent partie prenante d'un jeu qui lui échappe, comme s'il s'acheminait vers un piège. Le piège monté par qui ? est là, invisible, et le narrateur va s'y engouffrer par mégarde. Une erreur de raisonnement lui fait manquer le TGV qui doit l'emmener à Grenoble. Simple ratage, pourrait-on croire, sans conséquences trop graves. Pourtant celui-ci va dérégler définitivement sa vie, ressusciter en lui de vieilles terreurs enfantines et une jalousie qu'il croyait éteinte, fausser ses rapports avec sa femme, lui rendre obsédante jusqu'au délire la figure de l'innocent mais mystérieux Calixte, homme de ménage noir que le couple a embauché par humanitarisme machinal. L'angoisse qui étreint le narrateur imprégnerait tout le roman si l'humeur satirique dans la description de la vie provinciale, si l'humour dans celle de la sphère privée ne conféraient à ce livre la tonalité d'un conte fantastique à la fois terrible et cocasse. Les masques ne sauraient y manquer, ni les fosses béantes, ni les fêtes ambiguës où la mort, masquée elle aussi, se faufile?

Light of the World by James Lee Burke Book Resume:

Dave Robicheaux battles the most diabolical villain he has ever faced in this atmospheric thriller. Sadist and serial killer Asa Surrette narrowly escaped the death penalty for the string of heinous murders he committed while capital punishment was outlawed in Kansas. But following a series of damning articles written by Dave Robicheaux’s daughter Alafair, Surrette escapes from a prison transport van and heads to Montana, where an unsuspecting Dave—along with Alafair; Dave’s wife, Molly; Dave’s faithful partner Clete; and Clete’s newfound daughter, Gretchen Horowitz—have come to take in the sweet summer air. Surrette may be even worse than Dave’s old enemy Legion Guidry, a man Dave suspected might very well be the devil incarnate. But before Dave can stop Surrette from harming those he loves most, he’ll have to do battle with Love Younger, an enigmatic petrochemical magnate seeking to build an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas, and Wyatt Dixon, a rodeo clown with a dark past whom Burke fans will recall from his Billy Bob Holland novels. Drawing on real events that took place in Wichita, Kansas, over a twenty-year span, Light of the World “reaffirms Robicheaux’s status as one of the most successfully sustained creations in contemporary crime fiction” (The Washington Post Book World).

L'entreprise irréprochable by Jean-Marc Le Gall Book Resume:

Que nous apprend la crise sur les défis qui attendent l'entreprise ? A l'évidence, elle a aggravé nombre de difficultés que l'on percevait depuis maintenant quelques années. En particulier, si l'entreprise demeure un lieu très investi humainement, ses salariés expriment des insatisfactions croissantes: partage des profits jugé inéquitable, conditions de travail dégradées, niveau élevé de stress et distance forte avec les dirigeants. Un tel constat appelle des réponses innovantes, au-delà des invitations rituelles à mieux manager et communiquer. Le défi aujourd'hui pour les dirigeants est, à rebours de leur credo habituel, de faire émerger un contre-pouvoir coopératif, qui combine la loyauté des salariés, le droit au débat et leur volonté d'agir pour améliorer la performance. Publiquement évaluée, la performance sociale concourt désormais à l'acceptation et à la réussite de l'entreprise contemporaine.

The Cellar by Minette Walters Book Resume:

Chilling psychological suspense with “exceptional punch” from the Edgar Award–winning author of The Dark Room (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). It seems like a respectable British home, occupied by the Songolis, an upstanding family of African immigrants. But hidden within the cellar is Muna—a teenage girl who cooks for them, cleans for them, endures brutal abuse from them . . . and is powerless to escape. Then one day, the Songolis’ ten-year-old son fails to come home from school, and Scotland Yard arrives at the house to investigate. While they look into the boy’s disappearance, Muna must play the role of beloved daughter. She suddenly has a real bedroom, with sunlight, and real clothing to wear. But she must continue to keep quiet—and hide the fact that she has learned how to speak English. Even as the police are watching, her secret life of enslavement goes on. But Muna is hatching a plan—and her acts of rebellion and revenge will be more terrifying than this family could have imagined—in this dark, twisting tale that represents “contemporary crime writing at its absolute peak” (Val McDermid).

Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky Book Resume:

Suite Française is both a brilliant novel of wartime and an extraordinary historical document. An unmatched evocation of the exodus from Paris after the German invasion of 1940, and of life under the Nazi occupation, it was written by the esteemed French novelist Irène Némirovsky as events unfolded around her. This haunting masterpiece has been hailed by European critics as a War and Peace for the Second World War. Though she conceived the book as a five-part work (based on the form of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony), Irène Némirovsky was able to write only the first two parts, Storm in June and Dolce, before she was arrested in July 1942. She died in Auschwitz the following month. The manuscript was saved by her young daughter Denise; it was only decades later that Denise learned that what she had imagined was her mother’s journal was in fact an invaluable work of art. Storm in June takes place in the tumult of the evacuation from Paris in 1940, just before the arrival of the invading German army. It moves vividly between different levels of society–from the wealthy Péricand family, whose servants pack up their possessions for them, to a group of orphans from the 16th arrondissement escaping in a military truck. Némirovsky’s immense canvas includes deserting soldiers and terrified secretaries, cynical bank directors and hapless priests, egotistical writers and hardscrabble prostitutes–all thrown together in a chaotic attempt to escape the capital. Moving between them chapter by chapter, this thrilling novel describes a journey hampered and in some cases abandoned because of confusion, shelling, rumour, lack of supplies, bad luck and ordinary human weakness. Cars break down or are stolen; relatives are forgotten; friends are divided; but there are also moments of love and charity. Throughout, whether depicting saintly forbearance or the basest selfishness, Storm in June neither sweetens nor demonizes its characters; unsentimentally, with stunning perceptiveness, Némirovsky shows the complexities that mean no-one is simply a hero or villain. The second volume, Dolce, is set in the German-occupied village of Bussy. Again, Némirovsky switches seamlessly between social strata, from tenant farmers to the local aristocracy. The focus, however, is on the delicate, secret love affair between a German soldier and the French woman in whose house he has been billeted; the passion, doubts and deceits of their burgeoning relationship echo the complex mixture of hostility and acceptance felt by the occupied community as a whole. Némirovsky is amazingly sensitive in her depiction of changing, often contradictory emotions, but her attention to the personal is matched by her sharp-eyed discussion of small-town life and the politics of occupation. In this myth-dissolving book, the French villagers see the Germans as oppressive warriors, but also as handsome young men, and occupation does nothing to remedy the condescension and envy that bedevil relations between rich and poor. Quite apart from the astonishing story of its survival, Suite Française is a novel of genius and lasting artistic value. Subtle, often fiercely ironic, and deeply compassionate, it is both a piercing record of its time and a humane, profoundly moving novel.

Missing Justice by Alafair Burke Book Resume:

In the second entry in this "sharp, new crime series," the search for a missing judge leads Samantha Kincaid into Portland politics and a labyrinth of crime, corruption, and cover-ups (Publishers Weekly) Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid is back at work after an attempt on her life and a promotion into the Major Crimes Unit. When the husband of Portland, Oregon, city judge Clarissa Easterbrook reports her missing and Samantha is called out on the case, she assumes her only job is to make the district attorney look good until the judge turns up. When the police discover evidence of foul play, however, Samantha finds herself unearthing secrets that Clarissa had wanted to stay hidden, the lingering personal tolls of a crime that occurred decades ago. And when those secrets lead to the discovery of corruption at the highest levels of the city's power structure, Samantha realizes that her quest for justice could cost her not only her job but her life. In the skillfully plotted, highly suspenseful follow-up to her acclaimed debut, Judgment Calls, Alafair Burke once again demonstrates that "she's got what it takes" (Michael Connelly). With its irreverent heroine and seamless blend of squad rooms, street scenes, and courtroom drama, Missing Justice confirms Burke's place among the genre's most talented and exciting newcomers.

Mirrorland by Carole Johnstone Book Resume:

“Dark and devious... Beautifully written and plotted with a watchmaker’s precision.” — Stephen King “A dark, twisty, and richly atmospheric exploration of the power of imagination” —Ruth Ware, author of One by One and The Woman in Cabin 10 With the startling twists of Gone Girl and the haunting emotional power of Room, Mirrorland is a thrilling work of psychological suspense about twin sisters, the man they both love, and the dark childhood they can’t leave behind. Cat lives in Los Angeles, far away from 36 Westeryk Road, the imposing gothic house in Edinburgh where she and her estranged twin sister, El, grew up. As girls, they invented Mirrorland, a dark, imaginary place under the pantry stairs full of pirates, witches, and clowns. These days Cat rarely thinks about their childhood home, or the fact that El now lives there with her husband Ross. But when El mysteriously disappears after going out on her sailboat, Cat is forced to return to 36 Westeryk Road, which has scarcely changed in twenty years. The grand old house is still full of shadowy corners, and at every turn Cat finds herself stumbling on long-held secrets and terrifying ghosts from the past. Because someone—El?—has left Cat clues in almost every room: a treasure hunt that leads right back to Mirrorland, where she knows the truth lies crouched and waiting... A twisty, dark, and brilliantly crafted thriller about love and betrayal, redemption and revenge, Mirrorland is a propulsive, page-turning debut about the power of imagination and the price of freedom.
