The national bestseller and winner of the Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Mystery

“Girl in the Blue Coat is a powerful, compelling coming-of-age story set against the dark and dangerous backdrop of World War II. It’s an important and page-turning look at the choices all of us-including young adults-have to make in wartime. A beautiful combination of heartbreak, loss, young love, and hope.” -Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale

“A tapestry of guilt and acceptance, growing responsibility, and reluctant heroism, Hanneke’s coming-of-age under heartbreaking circumstances is a jarring reminder of how war consumes and transforms the passions of ordinary life. Every devastating moment of this beautiful novel is both poignant and powerful, and every word feels true.” -Elizabeth Wein, New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity

Amsterdam, 1943. Hanneke spends her days procuring and delivering sought-after black market goods to paying customers, her nights hiding the true nature of her work from her concerned parents, and every waking moment mourning her boyfriend, who was killed on the Dutch front lines when the Germans invaded. She likes to think of her illegal work as a small act of rebellion.

On a routine delivery, a client asks Hanneke for help. Expecting to hear that Mrs. Janssen wants meat or kerosene, Hanneke is shocked by the older woman’s frantic plea to find a person-a Jewish teenager Mrs. Janssen had been hiding, who has vanished without a trace from a secret room. Hanneke initially wants nothing to do with such dangerous work, but is ultimately drawn into a web of mysteries and stunning revelations that lead her into the heart of the resistance, open her eyes to the horrors of the Nazi war machine, and compel her to take desperate action.

Beautifully written, intricately plotted, and meticulously researched, Girl in the Blue Coat is an extraordinary, gripping novel about bravery, grief, and love in impossible times.

#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham’s newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that’s on shaky ground.

Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.
But maybe there’s a way out. Maybe there’s a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right? Well, yes and no . . .
Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar.

Biography
Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, John Grisham was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby–writing his first novel.

Born on February 8, 1955 in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to a construction worker and a homemaker, John Grisham as a child dreamed of being a professional baseball player. Realizing he didn’t have the right stuff for a pro career, he shifted gears and majored in accounting at Mississippi State University. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade in Southaven, specializing in criminal defense and personal injury litigation.

One day at the DeSoto County courthouse, Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl’s father had murdered her assailants. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, it was eventually bought by Wynwood Press, who gave it a modest 5,000 copy printing and published it in June 1988.

That might have put an end to Grishams hobby. However, he had already begun his next book, and it would quickly turn that hobby into a new full-time career. When he sold the film rights to The Firm to Paramount Pictures for $600,000, Grisham suddenly became a hot property among publishers, and book rights were bought by Doubleday. Spending 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, The Firm became the bestselling novel of 1991.

The successes of The Pelican Brief, which hit number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and The Client, which debuted at number one, confirmed Grisham’s reputation as the master of the legal thriller. Grisham’s success even renewed interest in A Time to Kill, which was republished in hardcover by Doubleday and then in paperback by Dell. This time around, it was a bestseller.

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one book a year. His other books are The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, The Chamber, The Rainmaker, The Runaway Jury, The Partner, The Street Lawyer, The Testament, The Brethren, A Painted House, Skipping Christmas, The Summons, The King of Torts, Bleachers, The Last Juror, The Broker, Playing for Pizza,The Appeal, The Associate, Ford County, The Confession, The Litigators, Calico Joe, The Racketeer, Sycamore Row, Gray Mountain, and Rogue Lawyer. All of them have become international bestsellers. In addition he has written six novels for Young Adult readers: Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer, Theodore Boone: The Abduction, Theodore Boone: The Accused, Theodore Boone: The Activist, Theodore Boone: The Fugitive, and Theodore Boone: The Scandal (2016). There are currently over 300 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 29 languages. The Innocent Man (October 2006) marked his first foray into non-fiction, and Ford County (November 2009) was his first short story collection. Partners (March 2016) was his first original digital short story. Nine of his novels have been turned into films (The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker, The Chamber, A Painted House, The Runaway Jury, and Skipping Christmas), as was an original screenplay, The Gingerbread Man.

Grisham took time off from writing for several months in 1996 to return, after a five-year hiatus, to the courtroom. He was honoring a commitment made before he had retired from the law to become a full-time writer: representing the family of a railroad brakeman killed when he was pinned between two cars. Preparing his case with the same passion and dedication as his books’ protagonists, Grisham successfully argued his clients’ case, earning them a jury award of $683,500—the biggest verdict of his career.

When he’s not writing, Grisham devotes time to charitable causes, including most recently his Rebuild The Coast Fund, which raised 8.8 million dollars for Gulf Coast relief in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He also keeps up with his greatest passion: baseball. The man who dreamed of being a professional baseball player now serves as the local Little League commissioner. The six ballfields he built on his property have played host to over 350 kids on 26 Little League teams.

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

This is Redemption Road.

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

 

Editorial Reviews
Review
“People in publishing have always known that John Hart can flat-out write. His prose conjures comparisons with James Lee Burke in its sultry, melodious alchemy. With Redemption Road Hart has taken it to another level. The prologue is heart-wrenching and the chapters thereafter pull you in like matter to a black hole. Read this novel. And then go back and read all of his others. He’s that good.” ― David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“There’s no easier way to say it: Redemption Road is simply great writing.” – Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

“John Hart writes like a poet, and I couldn’t put down this novel, an utterly riveting story of crime and its profound ripple effects on the human psyche. I have long been a fan of John Hart, but in Redemption Road, he has topped himself.” — Lisa Scottoline, New York Times Bestselling Author of Corrupted

“Big, bold, and impossible to put down, REDEMPTION ROAD had me from page one. John Hart is a master storyteller.” ― Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“In this stellar crime thriller, Edgar-winner Hart (Iron House) explores the human capacity for resilience and trust in the face of heartbreaking betrayal…Though Hart employs plot twists effectively, it’s his powerful, wounded but courageous lead whom readers will remember.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Enough characters, confrontations, secrets, and subplots to fill the stage of an opera house―and leave spectators from the orchestra to the balcony moved and misty-eyed. ” – Kirkus Reviews

“A police officer with a tragic past, two children in peril, and a wrongly accused men – it all adds up to great story telling. REDEMPTION ROAD is a thriller with a Southern gothic touch. With his trademark strength and deep insight, John Hart rolls out another masterpiece. His first female protagonist is a flawed woman; but the reader never doubts the goodness of her heart. Plan to set aside a good chunk of time. You will have a hard time putting this book down before you reach the stunning conclusion.” ― Pamela Klinger-Horn, Excelsior Bay Books

“John Hart loves the terrain where good people tough by nature or circumstance try to set things right while also rarely asking for help. Mix that with some very bad folks twisted by power and desire and you have the kind of riveting atmospheric story he’s great at. Vivid characters determined to get to the bottom of things, breaking through their own reserve to join forces and protect the weak. Redemption Road is deeply engaging from beginning to end. This author has never disappointed me. I love the richness of his stories and the paths this characters chose to in fact achieve some kind of redemption for the powerless.” ― Sheryl Cotleur, Cooperfield’s Books

“Redemption Road is the best thriller I have read in the past 10 years. You have a damaged cop that refuses to help herself, an ex-cop leaving prison after serving time for a murder he didn’t commit and a serial killer who is unknown in the town he has been preying upon for years. And that just starts the book! Thanks to John Hart’s masterful writing and my not talking about anything else but his page-turning, electric novel, we have 22 preorders for a book that doesn’t even have an ISBN yet!” ― Sally Brewster, Park Road Books

“In Redemption Road, John Hart has created the perfect combination of elements for any reader of thrillers―unending suspense, plot twists galore, in-depth and well drawn characters, and realistic and atmospheric settings. This is perfect for those who love John Grisham, Harlan Coben, Wiley Cash, and C. J. Box. Readers have waited five long years for a new book by Hart so librarians will want to buy plenty for both demand and for introducing to new readers.” ― Robin Beerbower, EarlyWord.com Columnist

“Every new John Hart novel is a credit to the written word. Over five books, he has raised the bar for commercial fiction, deftly blending the tension, pacing, and suspense of the classic thriller with characters so richly drawn and prose so elegant that his stories are worthy of being called literature. After The Last Child and Iron House, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Hart’s next offering. I was not disappointed. Redemption Road is a triumph.” ― Corban Addison, internationally bestselling author of A Walk Across the Sun

“John Hart is the author of one of my all time favorite books, The King of Lies. His latest novel, Redemption Road, is a must read for anybody who loves an intelligent and totally gripping page turner. It is the one book that I recommend to all my friends this Summer.” ― Markus Wilhelm

“He is a skilled writer who can plumb the minds of a wide range of characters while building tension with an intricate plot and revealing backstories…accomplished achievement.” ― Library Journal

“Hart knows emotion; he also knows how to creatively spin a tale out of control yet be able to keep confusion at bay at all times. Readers will love the skill this man portrays bringing Redemption Road to life.” ―Suspense Magazine

“Hart unwinds another complex plot, rich in backstory but driven by a propulsive main narrative…Hart plays brilliantly on the tradition of the southern gothic, but his grasp of character gives this novel―and all his works―the extra dimension that extends his audience well beyond adrenaline junkies.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A two-time Edgar winner and a writer who’s batting .1000 [1.000?] on New York Times best-sellers, Hart hasn’t lost his touch.”” – Booklist, starred review

“Hart spins an intricately plotted crime story with plenty of twists and sharp turns…what’s truly satisfying is to see the characters discover their own truths―authentically, painfully, and at their own pace, the way it happens in real life. Hopefully it won’t be another five years until we see more from John Hart.” – The Strand Magazine

“It has been a long time since I started a novel that from word one held me captive while it built slowly, inexorably, breathlessly to its heart-stopping finale…Ultimately,Redemption Road is about the power of loss, memory and place. It is a dazzling evocation of what Hart calls “the search for light in dark places.” – Open Letters Monthly

“REDEMPTION ROAD is as good as any of [Hart’s] previous novels and in some cases even better. His grasp of plot is still phenomenal, his creation of characters is still amazing, and his way with words is still magnificently acute. In this book he writes with the same southern melancholia style of Conroy and McCullers, which is not an easy thing to do … his story rings true. It possesses tremendous depth as it reveals the isolation a wounded heart can feel. It shows understanding in the emotions of rage and revenge. It shows the curative blessings of a redemptive soul. That is a lot to pack into a story but Hart has the heart and stamina to make it all work …Stick out your thumb, flag him down and join him on this amazing journey. It will be the ride of a lifetime.” ―Huffington Post

“John Hart’s exquisite writing had me the moment I opened this book…Hart introduces a full cast of characters and manages to weave them together seamlessly. ” – NJ Star Ledger

“The pages keep turning — almost involuntarily — until the end. Hart’s writing is, at times, pure poetry. Yet at other times, the violence and cruelty he describes are almost too horrible to read. And that’s probably the best way to describe this book — a novel that has everything from torture and tortured people to beauty and what is the best in human nature. Hart manages to encompass it all. Beautifully.” – Examiner.com

“There’s a magic in his work…Hart creates characters your heart bleeds for…thoroughly worth a slow, attentive read. Hart’s muscular prose is an editor’s dream, written not just in active voice but using verbs you feel in your viscera.” – Raleigh News & Observer

“Hart ties the two plot threads in a gripping, believable story that doesn’t rest until the last sentence…’Redemption Road’ contains a more ambitious plot than Hart’s previous novels, and he weaves this seemingly far-flung story with aplomb.” – Assocated Press

“Hart once again has proved that he ranks among the best writers anywhere when it comes to literary and psychological thrillers, those novels that combine crime, suspense and searing glimpses into the human mind and soul.” – Greensboro News & Record

“One of today’s finest thriller writers – certainly in the same league as David Baldacci, John Grisham, Frederick Forsyth and Lee Child. There are moments when Hart’s writing soars off the page with a lyricism that probably only James Lee Burke can match. Unforgettable.” – Daily Mail (UK)

“John Hart is as near to perfect as any writer currently working. Redemption Road is conclusive evidence that Hart’s name belongs in the same breath as P.D. James and Ruth Rendell, masters of language and character who demonstrated again and again that mysteries and thrillers are not limited to plot-driven potboilers. They can be a beautiful art form, too, triggering emotions as strong as any inspired by music or poetry.” – Chapter 16

“Edgar Award winning John Hart cements his status as one of America’s premier novelists, as well as mystery writers, in “Redemption Road,” a beautifully rendered, heart wrenching tale that’s the perfect combination of brains and brawn…haunting in its base simplicity and riveting in its emotional angst, this is an extraordinary novel in which the human heart proves the most confounding mystery of all.” – The Providence Journal

“With prose that runs the gamut between tough and lyrical, a page-turner plot that raises issues both timely and timeless and the talent to delve deeply into the psyches of the injured, Hart…again shines in a novel that examines our ability to rise above the destructive events in our lives ― or to surrender to our weaknesses. More than a crime novel, “Redemption Road” offers a volcano of unspeakable cruelty, corruption and sin ― but also a testament to saving love, courage and grace.” – The Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Redemption Road returns Hart to his rightful place as one of the most literary of living crime writers; and one that illustrates the power of genre fiction when placed in the hands of a master story-teller.” – Shotsmag (UK)

“Redemption Road is an achingly beautiful literary thriller powered by evocative prose and remarkable characters, a disturbing tale of wounded people scrabbling about in a world of secrets, betrayals, and tough choices.” – New Zealand Herald

“Redemption Road by John Hart is a major work of creative writing that has few equals in recent fiction and stands alone in the crime fiction genre. It is a spectacular achievement and this year’s most satisfying read.” ―The Durango Telegraph

A revealing new portrait of Robert F. Kennedy that gets closer to the man than any book before, by bestselling author Chris Matthews, an esteemed Kennedy expert and anchor of MSNBC’s Hardball.

With his bestselling biography Jack Kennedy, Chris Matthews shared a new look of one of America’s most beloved Presidents and the patriotic spirit that defined him. Now, with Bobby Kennedy, Matthews returns with a gripping, in-depth, behind-the-scenes portrait of one of the great figures of the American twentieth century.

Overlooked by his father, and overshadowed by his war-hero brother, Bobby Kennedy was the perpetual underdog. When he had the chance to become a naval officer like Jack, Bobby turned it down, choosing instead to join the Navy as a common sailor. It was a life changing experience that led him to connect with voters from all walks of life: young or old, black or white, rich or poor. They were the people who turned out for him in his 1968 campaign. RFK would prove himself to be the rarest of politicians—both a pragmatist who knew how to get the job done and an unwavering idealist who could inspire millions.

Drawing on extensive research and interviews, Matthews pulls back the curtain on the public and private worlds of Robert Francis Kennedy. He shines a light on all the important moments of his life, from his early years and his start in politics to his crucial role as attorney general in his brother’s administration and his tragic run for president. This definitive book brings Bobby Kennedy to life like never before and is destined to become a political classic.

 

Editorial Reviews
Review
“A brisk, admiring portrait that burnishes the Kennedy image.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Cogently illustrates leadership qualities Kennedy possessed that are sorely lacking in today’s divisive culture.” –Booklist

“If you love reading about politics, if you ever loved the Kennedys or were fascinated by them, if you love biographical history or if you just like a good yarn about a brooding soul who turns into an uplifting, magnetic force—Chris Matthews’ “Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit” Should be your next read. It’s well-researched, dramatically told. It brings those times—Camelot and after—back to life.”—Lesley Stahl, Correspondent for 60 Minutes

Chris Matthews is the host of MSNBC’s Hardball. He is the author of Jack Kennedy—Elusive Hero; Tip and the Gipper—When Politics Worked; Kennedy and Nixon; Hardball; and now Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit.

Review
“Samantha Seneviratne has assembled the most beguiling collection of desserts, all of which hinge on the exotic spices she knows so well from childhood visits to her family’s native Sri Lanka. The warmth and intensity of cloves, cardamom, and other spices breathe new life into many of our favorite sweet endings—as well as an array of desserts that might be quite fresh and new to the reader. The many beautiful photographs make this already stunning book even more so!”
—Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy and The New Vegetarian Cooking For Everyone

“Samantha Seneviratne has a fresh approach to what can feel like a tired niche — the baking book. She organizes her beautifully photographed cookbook by spice, so chapters are sorted by cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and so on. It’s a different way to peruse — and be inspired by — a baking book. And tucked inside those chapters are approachable and creative takes on classic treats. ”
—J.M. Hirsch, Associated Press

“This is a gorgeously imagined and photographed book with a warm-hearted spirit. Seneviratne’s instructions are welcoming and informative. She offers well researched spice intel and clear baking cues.”
—Editors, Epicurious

“The straightforward recipes are great for novice bakers (ahem, me) and also help use up spices that would otherwise be gathering dust. Plus, Seneviratne’s Connecticut-by-way-of-Sri-Lanka stories about family are totally charming. And sugar-phobes are in the clear, too, since most of the recipes are pretty low in that department.”
—Mallory Schultz, Bon Appetit

“With beautiful, understated photos, a history of each spice’s production and use over the centuries, and lovely stories about Sri Lanka and Seneviratne’s grandparents, The New Sugar and Spice is a baker’s dream come true.”
—Jessica Howard, Shelf Awareness
