Cally was like any other teenage girl; she was smart, funny, caring, and beautiful. She loved going shopping with her mother, Kate, as well as beating her dad, Bill, at a game of basketball. Sure, she had her fair share of problems, like peer pressure and the occasional arguments with her parents--which usually led to being grounded. However, none of this could ever prepare her for the ultimate problem, an abusive boyfriend. Cally had been with her boyfriend, Ryan, for exactly one year. Nine months of that year was absolutely wonderful. They did everything together and were very much in love. However, the last three months were a pure and living hell for Cally. Ryan had started drinking very heavily and had become mentally and physically abusive. The abuse was terrible for Cally; in only three months Ryan had busted her lip and had put bruises all over Cally's body. The abuse was getting worse by the day and Cally knew that she had to end the relationship soon. Cally still cared for Ryan, despite his cruel and abusive ways, but she knew that he was not going to change; he was too far gone. Cally had planned to break up with him on prom night, but as a fatal turn of events unfolds, Cally discovers that it's not so easy to escape from Ryan's grip.

But this year, "The Spookiest Town in America" will learn the true meaning of fear. Its residents will see the real face of evil lurking behind the masks of ordinary people. They will feel it--in their hearts, in their bones, in their nightmares. Because evil never dies. It only grows stronger… "Jonathan Maberry's horror is rich and visceral. It's close to the heart…and close to the jugular." --Kevin J. Anderson "Maberry has the chops to craft stories at once intimate, epic, real, and horrific." --Bentley Little "Maberry spins great stories. His (Pine Deep) vampire novels are unique and masterful." --Richard Matheson "Maberry's works will be read for many, many years to come." --Ray Bradbury

The New York Times Best Seller "[Hope Never Dies is] an escapist fantasy that will likely appeal to liberals pining for the previous administration, longing for the Obama-Biden team to emerge from political retirement as action heroes."—Alexandra Alter, New York Times Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama team up in this high-stakes thriller that combines a mystery worthy of Watson and Holmes with the laugh-out-loud bromantic chemistry of Lethal Weapon’s Murtaugh and Riggs. Vice President Joe Biden is fresh out of the Obama White House and feeling adrift when his favorite railroad conductor dies in a suspicious accident, leaving behind an ailing wife and a trail of clues. To unravel the mystery, “Amtrak Joe” re-teams with the only man he’s ever fully trusted: the 44th president of the United States. Together they’ll plumb the darkest corners of Delaware, traveling from cheap motels to biker bars and beyond, as they uncover the sinister forces advancing America’s opioid epidemic. Part noir thriller and part bromance, Hope Never Dies is essentially the first published work of Obama/Biden fiction—and a cathartic read for anyone distressed by the current state of affairs.

Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.
