#1 New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman heralds the arrival of his thrilling new stand-alone novel, The Murderer’s Daughter, with this eBook original prequel short story—a powerful portrait of a young man seeking his destiny, who will ultimately play a key role in the life of an unforgettable new Kellerman heroine. It’s the summer of 1965, and Malcolm Bluestone, fresh out of Harvard and bound for law school, is taking a break—from the books and Brooklyn—to soak in the sun and sights of California. Free from his doting parents, he’s enjoying a whirlwind tour of his older brother Steve’s glamorous movie-star lifestyle. Yet all the excitement only seems to leave Malcolm feeling haunted by the sheltered, studious life he leads—and trapped by the secure but predictable future that awaits him. It is a future he has the power to change, if he’s brave enough to dare and wise enough, like his brother, to listen to his heart. But it will take a shocking incident on a movie set to finally spur Malcolm to action—and free him to walk the path he knows he was meant to. Praise for Jonathan Kellerman and his Alex Delaware mysteries “Jonathan Kellerman’s psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix.”—Los Angeles Times “A master of the psychological thriller.”—People “Kellerman really knows how to keep those pages turning.”—The New York Times Book Review “The combination of Alex Delaware [and] Detective Milo Sturgis . . . makes for the most original whodunit duo since Watson and Holmes.”—Forbes “Kellerman doesn’t just write psychological thrillers—he owns the genre.”—Detroit Free Press

A renowned Harvard professor's brilliant, sweeping, inspiring account of the role of justice in our society--and of the moral dilemmas we face as citizens What are our obligations to others as people in a free society? Should government tax the rich to help the poor? Is the free market fair? Is it sometimes wrong to tell the truth? Is killing sometimes morally required? Is it possible, or desirable, to legislate morality? Do individual rights and the common good conflict? Michael J. Sandel's "Justice" course is one of the most popular and influential at Harvard. Up to a thousand students pack the campus theater to hear Sandel relate the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day, and this fall, public television will air a series based on the course. Justice offers readers the same exhilarating journey that captivates Harvard students. This book is a searching, lyrical exploration of the meaning of justice, one that invites readers of all political persuasions to consider familiar controversies in fresh and illuminating ways. Affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, patriotism and dissent, the moral limits of markets—Sandel dramatizes the challenge of thinking through these con?icts, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well. Justice is lively, thought-provoking, and wise—an essential new addition to the small shelf of books that speak convincingly to the hard questions of our civic life.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes bonus material From the creator of the acclaimed Alex Delaware series comes a tour de force standalone novel that illustrates perfectly why “Jonathan Kellerman has justly earned his reputation as a master of the psychological thriller” (People). A brilliant, deeply dedicated psychologist, Grace Blades has a gift for treating troubled souls and tormented psyches—perhaps because she bears her own invisible scars: Only five years old when she witnessed her parents’ deaths in a bloody murder-suicide, Grace took refuge in her fierce intellect and found comfort in the loving couple who adopted her. But even as an adult with an accomplished professional life, Grace still has a dark, secret side. When her two worlds shockingly converge, Grace’s harrowing past returns with a vengeance. Both Grace and her newest patient are stunned when they recognize each other from a recent encounter. Haunted by his bleak past, mild-mannered Andrew Toner is desperate for Grace’s renowned therapeutic expertise and more than willing to ignore their connection. And while Grace is tempted to explore his case, which seems to eerily echo her grim early years, she refuses—a decision she regrets when a homicide detective appears on her doorstep. An evil she thought she’d outrun has reared its head again, but Grace fears that a police inquiry will expose her double life. Launching her own personal investigation leads her to a murderously manipulative foe, one whose warped craving for power forces Grace back into the chaos and madness she’d long ago fled. Praise for The Murderer’s Daughter “[A] taut thriller . . . with the richness and resonance of literary fiction.”—Washington Independent Review of Books “A stunning page-turner with a truly fascinating femme fatale at its fast-beating heart . . . packed with ingenious, razor-sharp plotting, mesmerizing mind games and nail-biting suspense.”—Yorkshire Evening Post “A tight, fast-paced narrative [with] a brilliant, kick-ass heroine.”—Library Journal “Kellerman doesn’t let off-the-charts genius Grace become one-dimensional. Her backstory and challenge to fit in, even into adulthood, are an engaging part of this satisfying mystery, which, though billed as a stand-alone, could certainly make a spin-off series.”—Booklist “An amazing tale of survival and adaptability in the face of neglect and murder.”—RT Book Reviews Praise for Jonathan Kellerman “Kellerman’s psychology skills and dark imagination are a potent literary mix.”—Los Angeles Times “Kellerman doesn’t just write psychological thrillers—he owns the genre.”—Detroit Free Press

A young Italian American woman struggles to find her way between two cultures in this novel of “familial dignity . . . credibility and intelligence” (Kirkus Reviews). On a stroll in his Queens neighborhood, Sicilian-born Nino Giardello glimpses his daughter, ambitious nineteen-year-old Gina, heading for the subway. Silently, he follows her to Manhattan and watches, outraged, as she walks into the arms of a golden-haired stranger. The incident confirms Nino’s worst suspicions about his daughter, whose American lifestyle he sees as an insult to his heritage. In a struggle that exceeds all boundaries, including death, father and daughter will engage in a conflict of generations, cultures, and sexes. Josephine Gattuso Hendin captures New York Italian immigrant life with startling precision, exploring the intricate web of a community’s everyday transactions and the multifaceted father-daughter relationship at the heart of the Italian American family. A coming-of-age novel that is both wryly funny and achingly sad, “The Right Thing to Do effectively portrays both New York’s Italian immigrant milieu and one man’s rage at his own powerlessness in the face of his child’s hunger for life” (Booklist).

We all want to do the right thing. But determining the right thing to do isn't always easy. Everytime we pick up a newspaper or turn on the TV, someone tells us how we ought to behave. Rarely, however, do we get much assistance in deciding what to do for ourselves. Meanwhile, technological developments and rapid social changes make the right decisions-especially about the BIG issues-life, death, sex, justice, and so on-harder and harder to identify. Choosing the Right Thing to Do responds to the growing need that people of all ages have for moral guidance-without moralizing. It contains a rich palette of principles and strategies, stories and examples, ideas and insights that offer real-world help for intelligently addressing the often quite troubling choices we face every day in our personal relationships, jobs, and lifestyles.

Sandra Davis, an employee with the federal government’s Affordable Health Care Program, is in a deadly catch 22 situation: Keep quiet and continue to do her job or tell the truth, save thousands of lives and be killed for going public. Her death would be ruled a tragic case of overwork, exhaustion and despair...if not for the letters she sent out to 13 people. Sandra has a terrible secret, and now, her secret is shared by several carefully selected letter holders. Since the passage of the Healthcare Act, the United States has changed. The powers-that-be have too much power, but nobody knows it—until now. Sandra’s letters reach their intended recipients, and so begins a series of mysterious murders that stump authorities. Someone with great influence is killing off everyone who received a letter from Sandra, one by one. Spin-doctors in Washington are quick to cover up anything that might cast their operation in an unfavorable light, and they are good at their jobs, even when their job involves murder. Still, there are those willing to fight back: survivors who know what they’re up against. They will reveal Sandra’s truth at any cost in order to protect the American people, despite the threat of death and dishonor.
