"In this captivating and intricate novel Laisha Rosnau introduces us to three women, each of whom is storied enough to have their own novel and who, together, make for an unforgettable tale. Based on the true story of the Caetanis, Italian nobility driven out of their home by the rise in fascism who chose exile in Vernon, BC, Rosnau brings to life Ofelia Caetani, her daughter Sveva Caetani and their personal secretary, Miss Juul. Miss Juul is the voice of the novel, a diminutive Danish woman who enters into employment with the Caetani family in Italy before the birth of Sveva, stays with them through twenty-five years of seclusion at their home in Vernon, and past the death of Ofelia. Little Fortress is a story of a shifting world, with the death of its age-old nobility, and of the intricacies of the lives of women caught up in these grand changes. It is a story of friendship, class, betrayal and love."--Publisher.
In this chilling new thriller from blockbuster author Linwood Barclay, one too many freak "accidents" force residents in New York to wonder if they're being targeted--and by whom. A freak New York elevator accident kills four people, and reporter Barbara Matheson jumps on the story. But when she realizes one of the victims was her former intern, she's horrified. She shares her grief in her online column, only to receive a menacing--and anonymous--comment in return: "Sorry about your friend. It's often the case that innocents are lost in pursuit of a greater good." Meanwhile, NYPD Detective Jerry Bourque is called to the scene of a grisly murder. Nothing seems to indicate that the murder is connected to the elevator accident, but when a second "accident" occurs the next day, what looked like coincidence quickly becomes more sinister. As the body count rises and Manhattan grinds to a halt, a city must uncover the sinister forces that are making its citizens plummet to their deaths.

"Nate Beckett has spent his life fighting wildfires instead of the lies and rumors that drove him from his Colorado home town. His mother begs him to come to Carlisle now that his father has been released from prison, but it isn't until he's sidelined by an injury that he's forced to return and face his past. But that means facing Brenna too. Fourteen years ago, Nate was in love with the preacher's daughter. When Pastor Strickland discovered Brenna had defied him to sneak out with Nate, the fight between Strickland and Nate's drunken dad was loud-and very public. Strickland was found murdered later that night, and everyone accused Roy Beckett. When the church burned down, people assumed it was Nate getting even for his father's conviction. He let the rumors fly and left Carlisle without looking back. Now, Brenna is stunned to learn that the man convicted of murdering her father has been pardoned. The events of that night set her life on a bad course, and she's dealing with a brutal custody battle with her ex and his new wife where he's using lies and his family's money to sway the judge. She's barely hanging on, and she's turned to alcohol to cope. Shame and fear consume her. As they deal with the present-including new information about that fateful night and a wildfire that's threatening their town-their past keeps igniting. Nate is the steady force Brenna has so desperately needed. But she'll have to learn to trust him again first."--pg.4 of cover
