“…the novel’s recognition of human frailty and nobility rings true, as does its faithful recreation of a place outside the storms of history.” -Publishers Weekly

New York Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

On an evening in late summer, the great financier Harry Wainwright, nearing the end of his life, arrives at a rustic fishing camp in a remote area of Maine. He comes bearing two things: his wish for a day of fishing in a place that has brought him solace for thirty years, and an astonishing bequest that will forever change the lives of those around him.

From the battlefields of Italy to the turbulence of the Vietnam era, to the private battles of love and family, The Summer Guest reveals the full history of this final pilgrimage and its meaning for four people: Jordan Patterson, the haunted young man who will guide Harry on his last voyage out; the camp’s owner Joe Crosby, a Vietnam draft evader who has spent a lifetime “trying to learn what it means to be brave”; Joe’s wife, Lucy, the woman Harry has loved for three decades; and Joe and Lucy’s daughter Kate—the spirited young woman who holds the key to the last unopened door to the past.

As their stories unfold, secrets are revealed, courage is tested, and the bonds of love are strengthened. And always center stage is the place itself—a magical, forgotten corner of New England where the longings of the human heart are mirrored in the wild beauty of the landscape.

Intimate, powerful, and profound, The Summer Guest reveals Justin Cronin as a storyteller of unique and marvelous talent. It is a book to treasure.

“A journey to hell and back. Entertaining, and 100 times more scary than any drink/drive campaign.” -FHM Magazine

This is a true story of a journey to hell and back.

In 1994 John Hoskison was a highly respected and successful professional golfer. He then shattered his perfect world. One evening he broke a rule of his life by drinking and driving and on the way home he hit and killed a cyclist.

Devastated by his actions Hoskison was thrown into an unimaginable world of remorse and regret. He knew he would never escape the pain he had caused and thought a prison sentence totally justified.

The story grips from the start when Hoskison swaps the safety of green fairways for the medieval squalor of HMP Wandsworth, where drug taking is rife and prison officers can throw victims to the hard men. Only one thing saves Hoskison – forgiveness. In the most incredibly generous gesture the story describes the forgiveness Hoskison receives which acts as a catylist for his survival in the face of adversity.

To save himself, Nine must uncover the secrets behind an experiment on former soldiers gone horribly wrong and the shocking truth about his own dark past.

Fasten your seat belts for one raucous ride through the quagmire of crazy characters befitting a novel set in Florida.

When a bomb is left on reporter Kelly Sand’s desk, she’s determined to find out who wants her to stop reporting on corporate growth in rural Florida. The open threat thrusts Kelly back into the arms of her editor and former lover, Bart Stanley.

Together, the two begin to unravel the master plan of major developers who want to destroy the last vestiges of Florida’s natural beauty. Tortoise Stew is a satire on political crime and Florida sensibilities.

A sometimes humorous, often harrowing, and never boring Florida suspense novel, Tortoise Stew contains a cast of characters who leave dead armadillos as calling cards, dynamite ponds as a way to fish, and carry guns under Santa Claus costumes during the annual Christmas parade.

The novel also addresses the ramifications of adoption after rape and the impact on both parents and children. All the while the developers and environmentalists fling insults and intrigue as murder and fatal accidents bombard the small communities of rural north Florida. As she investigates the plots building up, Kelly heads inside a mental institution for more ammunition. When it gets about as insane as it can get, the 2000 presidential election looms in the background providing a surreal quality to the antics of these characters.

Through it all, the steamy relationship between Kelly and Bart heats up to hot as they rediscover what brought them together in the first place.
