A Friend of the Family by Lauren Grodstein
"Fantastic book -- Devastating slice of life. How we make plans and try to protect our family and a tragic circumstance can wipe out all our dreams and hopes for the family. An unexpected circumstance destroys our life and makes life unbearable for the survivors."

Live to Tell by Lisa Gardner
"This is a compelling, suspenseful book about a female Boston police detective's investigation of two apparent murder-suicide cases. Both families involved had children who had been patients in a pediatric psych ward. Past and present family tragedies intertwine in this novel of psychiatry, murder, and New Age healing practices."

Homer and Langley by E.L. Doctorow
"Well written work of historical fiction -- a 'free imaginative rendering of the lives of NY's fabled Collyer brothers.'"

Haiku by Andrew Vachss
"Although not as interesting as a book in the Burke series, this novel about a band of homeless outcasts in NYC packs a punch. The characters are well-drawn in this noir offering."

Even by Andrew Grant
"A British agent in NY gets involved in plots of interest to both the NYPD and the FBI. Identity theft, the purchase and sale of human organs, revenge . . . This first novel by Lee Child's younger brother shows that talent runs in the family."
