              The Kings family has lived on Loosewood Island for three hundred years, and they ve been blessed with the bounty of the sea. But for the Kingses, every blessing comes with a curse. Woody Kings, the leader of the island s lobster fishing community and the family patriarch, teeters... on the throne. Cordelia, the oldest of Woody s three daughters, stands to inherit the crown after the death of her brother. To do so, however, she has to fend off meth dealers from the mainland while navigating sibling rivalry and the vulnerable nature of her own heart when she falls in love with her sternman. A love story and a modern epic in the grand Shakespearean vein that introduces a fiery and unforgettable heroine, The Lobster Kings is the story of Cordelia s struggle to maintain her island s way of life in the face of danger from offshore and the rich, looming, mythic legacy of her family s namesake.

              The aliens appeared one day, built a base on the moon, and put an ad on the Internet: ''We are an alien race you may call the Atoners. Ten thousand years ago we wronged humanity profoundly. We cannot undo what has been done, but we wish humanity to understand it. Therefore we req...uest twenty-one volunteers to visit seven planets to Witness for us. We will convey each volunteer there and back in complete safety. Volunteers must speak English. Send requests for electronic applications to witness@atoners.com.'' At first, everyone thought it was a joke. But it wasn't.

              Inspector O returns from a mission abroad to find his new police commander waiting at his office door. There has been a bank robbery--the first ever in Pyongyang--and the commander demands action, quickly. But is this urgency for real? Somewhere, someone in the North Korean leade...rship doesn't want Inspector O to complete his investigation. And why not? What if the robbery leads to the highest levels of the regime? What if power, not a need for cash, is the real reason behind the heist at the Gold Star Bank? This isn't a trail a detective in the Pyongyang police would want to follow to the end, even marked with monogrammed silk stockings. A Scottish policeman, a sultry Kazakh bank manager, and a mournful fellow detective combine to put O in the middle of a web of conspiracies that becomes more tangled--and dangerous--the more he pulls on the threads. This is the second novel in a series begun with the highly acclaimed A Corpse in the Koryo.

              The True, the Good, and the Beautiful are as timeless a trio of concepts as Western culture has to offer. Since before Socrates, humankind has explored these virtues in an attempt to describe and categorize them. But our definitions of these concepts have unceasingly changed over... the ages. Every known civilization has developed its own interpretations of them, and so has confronted difficult questions: Is truthfulness inherent or inculcated? Is beauty achieved or a gift from the gods? Is goodness a birthright or determined by society? In Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed, Howard Gardner explores the meaning of these virtues in a contemporary world of vast technological change and relativistic understandings of human nature.The concepts of truth, beauty, and the good may change, but they areand will remaincornerstones of our society.
