              A young boy finds himself at the center of a murder mystery in this timely and twisty thriller from the author of the acclaimed The Lost Girls--a compelling and indelible story set in small town America that examines the burden of guilt, the bitter price of forgiveness, and the d...ebts we owe our dead, both recent and distant. A body burns in the high desert hills. A young boy walks into a fire station, pale with the shock of a grisly discovery. A middle school teacher worries when her colleague is late for work. By day's end, when the body is identified as local math teacher Adam Merkel, a small Nevada town will begin its reckoning with a brutal and calculated murder. Adam Merkel left a university professorship to teach middle school math in Lovelock seven months before he died. A quiet, seemingly unremarkable man, he connected with only one of his students: Sal Prentiss, a lonely sixth grader who lives on a remote ranch in the hills with his uncles. The two outcasts developed a tender, trusting friendship that brought each of them hope in the wake of tragedy. But it is Sal who finds Adam's body, charred almost beyond recognition, less than two miles from his uncles' ranch. Nora Wheaton is the middle school's social studies teacher. Twelve years ago she returned to the hometown she hates to care for her disabled father, a drunk who crashed his car and killed her brother. As she delves into Adam's past for clues to who killed him, she confronts difficult truths about her relationship with her father and draws closer to Sal, who not only holds the key to solving Adam's murder but may offer her a chance at the life she thought she'd lost. Jake Sanchez is the volunteer on duty at the fire station when Sal reports finding Adam's body. Jake loved Sal's mother from a forlorn distance, and since her death he's tried to keep an eye on Sal. He, too, thinks Sal knows more than he's telling about the night Adam died, and when Nora shows up asking questions, he becomes her ally i

              The critically acclaimed, bestselling author of News of the World and Enemy Women returns to Texas in this atmospheric story, set at the end of the Civil War, about an itinerant fiddle player, a ragtag band of musicians with whom he travels trying to make a living, and the charmi...ng young Irish lass who steals his heart. In March 1865, the long and bitter War between the States is winding down. Till now, twenty-three-year-old Simon Boudlin has evaded military duty thanks to his slight stature, youthful appearance, and utter lack of compunction about bending the truth. But following a barroom brawl in Victoria, Texas, Simon finds himself conscripted, however belatedly, into the Confederate Army. Luckily his talent with a fiddle gets him a comparatively easy position in a regimental band. Weeks later, on the eve of the Confederate surrender, Simon and his bandmates are called to play for officers and their families from both sides of the conflict. There the quick-thinking, audacious fiddler can't help but notice the lovely Doris Mary Aherne, an indentured girl from Ireland, who is governess to a Union colonel's daughter. After the surrender, Simon and Doris go their separate ways. He will travel around Texas seeking fame and fortune as a musician. She must accompany the colonel's family to finish her three years of service. But Simon cannot forget the fair Irish maiden, and vows that someday he will find her again. Incandescent in its beauty, told in Paulette Jiles's trademark spare yet lilting style, Simon the Fiddler is a captivating, bittersweet tale of the chances a devoted man will take, and the lengths he will go to fulfill his heart's yearning.

              Ralph Compton's Gunslinger series is back with the story of an East Texas farmer pulled into the world of outlaws when he discovers the one thing that could bring him closer to his traitorous brother- his death. Brothers Ike and Cal Breckenridge, sons of a hardscrabble East Texas... farmer, hadn't seen eye to eye in years. Ike, the elder, returned home soon after the Civil War to help his father run the family farm; Cal deserted his military post to join forces with bloodthirsty outlaw Frank Miller. Everyone knew who was the good son, and who was the bad. Ike had almost forgotten his wayward brother until the morning he stood on the porch and saw a limping horse slowly making its way toward the house. Slumped in the saddle was young Cal Breckenridge, shot in the back, badly beaten, and dying. It was then that Ike finally realized blood runs thicker than water, and vowed to avenge Cal's death.

              Drifter Blake Durant was arrested and thrown into the Sunfish Creek jail on a simple case of mistaken identity. The town was expecting a visit from outlaw Tom Moran, who'd sworn to get revenge on its lawmen, and Deputy Billy Owen suspected that Blake was part of Moran's gang, sen...t out ahead of the main gang to scout the lay of the land. Then everything became even more complicated when some genuine owlhoots broke jail and committed a cold-blooded murder. A manhunt followed, as did the unexpected appearance of Moran's beautiful young daughter, Lisa. And Blake found himself on the trail of the outlaws... because the only way to clear himself of the murder was to bring back the guilty parties, either in their saddles... or across them.
