JACK OF SPIES

BY DAVID DOWNING

Soho Crime | Hardcover | 9781616952686
 
With the critically acclaimed "Station Series" now complete, master spy fiction author David Downing launches a meticulously crafted new series set at the dawn of espionage. It is 1913 and globe-trotting luxury car salesman Jack McColl is putting his military background and ear for languages to work for the fledgling Royal Navy intelligence services. The world is on the brink of calamity, as Germany and Europe inch closer to the First World War, and Jack's sporting interest in spycraft soon becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse with profound strategic implications. Set in Shanghai, San Francisco, New York, Tampico and Dublin, and with a complex set of players—ranging from Indian, Mexican, and Irish independence factions to the Kaiser's most deadly agents—Jack of Spies marks the beginning of Downing's masterpiece.

LIV, FOREVER

BY AMY TALKINGTON

Soho Teen | Hardcover | 9781616953225
 
“That special kind of story that manages to be both morbid and sweet. It's romantic, it's gruesome and you won't want it to end. Two severed thumbs up.”
—Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood
 
Liv Bloom lands an art scholarship at the prestigious Wickham Hall, her ticket out of the foster system. There, she meets Malcolm Astor, fellow artist and scion of one of the school’s original families. He sweeps her off her feet... but her hard-earned bliss is cut short when she’s viciously murdered. In death, Liv has to find the one person who can connect her—and the other ghosts of Wickham—to the living and fight to expose the terrible truth that haunts the halls of Wickham.

MURDER IN PIGALLE

BY CARA BLACK

Soho Crime | Hardcover | 9781616952846

June, 1998: Paris's sticky summer heat is even more oppressive than usual as rowdy French football fans riot in anticipation of the World Cup. Private Investigator Aimée Leduc has been trying to slow down her hectic lifestyle—she's five months' pregnant and has the baby's wellbeing to think about now. But then disaster strikes close to home. A serial rapist has been terrorizing Paris's Pigalle neighborhood, following teenage girls home and attacking them in their own houses. It is sad and frightening but has nothing to do with Aimée—until Zazie, the 13-year-old daughter of the proprietor of Aimée's favorite café, disappears. The police aren't mobilizing quickly enough, and when Zazie's desperate parents approach Aimée for help, she knows she couldn't say no even if she wanted to.

SONGS ONLY YOU KNOW

BY SEAN MADIGAN HOEN

Soho Press | Hardcover | 9781616953362
 
“A book of almost spooky clarity and relentless compassion... Universal, and ridiculously readable.”
—Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life

 
Sean Madigan Hoen’s unflinching debut memoir plunges readers into the Detroit hardcore scene and tells the  story of his family’s shocking disintegration, his band (Thoughts of Ionesco), and the music that saved his life. By turns poignant and brutal, Hoen’s story of young manhood marks the arrival of a fiercely original voice reminiscent of Nick Flynn's Another Bullshit Night in Suck City and Tobias Wolff's In Pharaoh's Army.

Meet Sean Hoen Saturday @ 11:30 am
