DESCRIPTION:

“The telling is masterful…Sit back and enjoy Watson’s latest. It’s better than bourbon on the rocks.”
Kirkus Reviews, Starred review

“Hypnotically beautiful novel…Paranoia has been defined as ‘seeing too much pattern.’ Author Watson can make us sweaty victims of that madness, partaking of it, suffering from it, and loving every minute.”
Booklist, Starred review

“Watson’s magic is in pacing and taut prose…Suitcase City is an absorbing thriller, a vivid adventure in a bright, humid, perilous underworld…[A] tense, bloody thriller with a strong sense of place and a soft heart.”
Shelf Awareness, Starred review

“[A] noir gem…a deeply contemplative and darkly poetic prose style complements the well-crafted plot.”
Publishers Weekly

“A solid revenge tale…There is plenty of action to be had in this suspense tale, but it is the examination of the characters’ motivations that really makes it shine. For fans of Lee Child and Nicci French.”
Library Journal

“Watson weaves…questions about race into a plot that takes one bloody turn after another, a crescendo of violence that ends with a day at sea that might be the most chilling of all.”
Tampa Bay Times

“[An] irresistible earworm of a novel…With its airtight atmosphere of impending, life-sinking doom, and taut language evoking palpable Gulf Coast Florida seediness, Suitcase City duly takes its place alongside the best works of former Floridian Pete Dexter, and the brilliant Tampa novels of Dennis Lehane.”
Paste Magazine

Suitcase City [is] such a damn great book, a too-rare (and sometimes nearly too real) depiction of the wildly different worlds that exist side by side in the city by the bay….Events uncoil with an unflashy confidence and understated poetry, drawing in diverse characters whose deep inner lives give the wire-tight plot a thumping, nervous heart.”
Creative Loafing Tampa

Suitcase City is a beautifully crafted labyrinth of plot and subplot.”
Florida Book Review

“The novels of Sterling Watson are to be treasured and passed on to the next generation.”
Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River

“Sterling Watson is an American treasure. If this taut literary crime novel doesn’t center him on the map, we should change maps.”
Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter

“I am a huge fan of Sterling Watson’s writing, and take it from me: Suitcase City is arguably his best novel to date. I began reading and did not look up again until the very last page, so taken was I by its twists and turns, its explorations of race and honor and the love a father has for his daughter. Turn off your phone, lock your door, and dive into Suitcase City.”
Ann Hood, author of The Obituary Writer

“As Watson reminds us, corruption and cruelty survive through their uncanny ability to take on new shapes.”
Laura Lippman, author of I’d Know You Anywhere

A man gets himself into a little bit of trouble, then a little bit more, then a lot. And then his whole world becomes a nightmare. How does he get himself out of this mess of his own creation? The answer involves the end of an extramarital affair, reconciliation with a daughter he has neglected, and a deadly encounter with a man who comes out of the past bearing bad news and the keys to a new life.

Set in Tampa, Florida, in the late 1980s, Suitcase City captures the glitter of the high life and the steamy essence of low places in the Cigar City. As always, Sterling Watson tells his story in prose that sings.

An arranged marriage with a warlock from a new startup family of witches will finally cement the Fairweather coven’s reign over Savannah and thoroughly crush those pesky Blackwoods once and for all. And it’s up to Julia Fairweather to play the bride.

That proves to be difficult, though, when there’s Roman Blackwood to think about. Julia has never felt a connection like she does with the smug warlock from her coven’s rival family. The heat, the passion–it has no place in a family feud that has stretched on for centuries, and yet, it’s undeniably there.

Julia must move past the way she feels and follow through on what she needs to do for her family. But with Roman refusing to keep his distance, it’s more likely the two will embark on a heated adventure destined to destroy themselves and bring down the two greatest witch families Savannah has ever seen.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

The Poisonwood Bibleby Barbara Kingsolver

BARGAIN

Available through May 26 at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family’s tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

The novel is set against one of the most dramatic political chronicles of the twentieth century: the Congo’s fight for independence from Belgium, the murder of its first elected prime minister, the CIA coup to install his replacement, and the insidious progress of a world economic order that robs the fledgling African nation of its autonomy. Against this backdrop, Orleanna Price reconstructs the story of her evangelist husband’s part in the Western assault on Africa, a tale indelibly darkened by her own losses and unanswerable questions about her own culpability. Also narrating the story, by turns, are her four daughters—the self-centered, teenaged Rachel; shrewd adolescent twins Leah and Adah; and Ruth May, a prescient five-year-old. These sharply observant girls, who arrive in the Congo with racial preconceptions forged in 1950s Georgia, will be marked in surprisingly different ways by their father’s intractable mission, and by Africa itself. Ultimately each must strike her own separate path to salvation. Their passionately intertwined stories become a compelling exploration of moral risk and personal responsibility.

Dancing between the dark comedy of human failings and the breathtaking possibilities of human hope, The Poisonwood Bible possesses all that has distinguished Barbara Kingsolver’s previous work, and extends this beloved writer’s vision to an entirely new level. Taking its place alongside the classic works of postcolonial literature, this ambitious novel establishes Kingsolver as one of the most thoughtful and daring of modern writers.

“Patrick Redmond weaves an intriguing tale of bigotry, religion, murder, and personal redemption in small-town America. He has the authentic voice of a born storyteller.”
Jonathan Odell, author of Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League

Some Go Hungry is a charming, well-paced, and thoroughly humane love story about a young gay man coming to terms with himself, his family, and the insular community in which the family’s restaurant has been central for more than forty years.”
Susan Scarf Merrell, author of Shirley

Part of Akashic’s Kaylie Jones Books imprint.

Some Go Hungry is a fictional account drawn from the author’s own experiences working in his family’s provincial Indiana restaurant–and wrestling with his sexual orientation–in a town that was rocked by the scandalous murder of his gay high school classmate in the 1980s.

Now a young man who has embraced his sexuality, Grey Daniels returns from Miami Beach, Florida, to Fort Sackville, Indiana, to run Daniels’ Family Buffet for his ailing father. Understanding that knowledge of his sexuality may reap disastrous results on his family’s half-century-old restaurant legacy–a popular Sunday dinner spot for the after-church crowd–Grey struggles to live his authentic, openly gay life. He is put to the test when his former high school lover–and fellow classmate of the murdered student–returns to town as the youth pastor and choir director of the local fundamentalist Christian church.

Some Go Hungry is the story of a man forced to choose between the happiness of others and his own joy, all the while realizing that compromising oneself–sacrificing your soul for the sake of others–is not living, but death.

DESCRIPTION:

The Organ Broker was named one of five finalists for the 2015 Hammett Prize for literary excellence in crime writing (winner TBA in Cot. 2016; last year’s winner was Stephen King). It is the gripping story of an underground black market organ dealer known as “New York Jack.” For eighteen years Jack has been a “transplant tourism director,” sending wealthy Americans and Europeans in need of kidneys and other organs to third world countries where they would buy them from transplant centers on the take. The death of a client and a newfound relationship lead to a crisis of conscience as he is forced to choose between a two million dollar commission—and participating in a murder. Jack races to South Africa, Brazil, and beyond, just one step ahead of his adversary and the FBI, in search of one small act of redemption.

As a disaffected youth in the late eighties, Jack Trayner entered the criminal world, selling coke when he needed money to pay his way through college. Although he later graduated from law school, an opportunity to earn easy money eventually seduced him into the bizarre and illegal black market for organs—a business that some consider horrendous and a small number of others deem to be heroic. The dual nature of this business assuaged Jack’s guilt and allowed him to flourish, yet the death of a client makes what he is doing all too real.

The international black market sale of organs is very real and operates at this very moment behind closed hospital doors in many cities all around the world. It is a world that most people are only vaguely aware exists, and few of us know much, if anything, about, until now—in the pages of the confession of New York Jack.

Even in Seth’s secret life, things are not what they seem. There’s something inside of him. And it has big plans for him, plans that it and others like it have nursed for centuries. But when Seth is assigned to watch a troubled young woman, all of those plans fall into question.

A story of the second American civil war, alternative energy and demonic possession, WINDFALL is part political thriller and part paranormal epic.

A semi-finalist for the 2013 Horatio Nelson Fiction Prize, WINDFALL is the latest novel from Pushcart-Prize nominated poet, and author of The Last Bad Job and Another Broken Wizard, Colin Dodds.

“Colin Dodds is an American author of note – and one whose novels continue to reveal that he is likely to become one of our premiere writers. WINDFALL, while a mesmerizingly fascinating and addictive story, steps beyond the usual campfire-cum-barbershop tales spread around town or discussed in literary circles… (I) encourage those whose hunger for the new in writing will be stimulated to become submerged in this very contemporary landfall of a book. Colin Dodds has arrived.”
-Grady Harp, Literary Aficionado

“WINDFALL is not your typical political thriller. Dodds deftly weaves in a solid paranormal thread that explores ambition, myth and morality in an indifferent America without resorting to pulpit thumping or cardboard villains.”
-The New Podler Review of Books

“Smart people compliment the smart and direct narrative in a way that keeps a reader… eager to turn the page to discover the next big move from these compelling leads… (WINDFALL) could easily stand up against the more famous works of the genre.”
