A confession 50 years in the making puts everyone's favorite Paris detective tres chic, Aimee Leduc, on a collision course with danger. Cara Black is the author of 18 books in the New York Times bestselling Aimee Leduc series.
Tom Barbash: The Dakota Winters
It's the fall of 1979 in New York City when 23-year-old Anton Winter, back from the Peace Corps and on the mend from a nasty bout of malaria, returns to his childhood home in the Dakota. By turns hilarious and poignant, The Dakota Winters is a family saga, a page-turning social novel, and a tale of a critical moment in the history of New York City and the country at large.
Jasmin Darznik: Song of a Captive Bird
Jasmin Darznik's debut novel Song of a Captive Bird was selected as a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice book as well as one of 2018's Best Books by Vogue, Ms., and Newsweek. To this day, Forugh Farrokhzad represents the birth of feminism in Iran, and Darznik uses the lens of fiction to capture the tenacity, spirit, and ecstatic turmoil of this iconic woman's story.
