“Miéville gives all readers a lot to dig into here, be it emotional drama, Godzilla-esque monster carnage, or the high adventure that comes only with riding the rails.” —USA Today

New York Times Bestseller by a Multi Award-Winning Author

On board the moletrain Medes, Sham Yes ap Soorap watches in awe as he witnesses his first moldywarpe hunt: the giant mole bursting from the earth, the harpoonists targeting their prey, the battle resulting in one’s death & the other’s glory. Spectacular as it is, Sham can’t shake the sense that there is more to life than the endless rails of the railsea—even if his captain thinks only of hunting the ivory-colored mole that took her arm years ago.

But when they come across a wrecked train, Sham finds something—a series of pictures hinting at something, somewhere, that should be impossible—that leads to considerably more than he’d bargained for. Soon he’s hunted on all sides, by pirates, trainsfolk, monsters and salvage-scrabblers. And it might not be just Sham’s life that’s about to change. It could be the whole of the railsea.

Now, she is determined to save his life.

After his parents’ untimely demise, he has done his utmost to live up to his family’s expectations. However, despite his best intentions, his reputation is far from respectable.

Weary of a life he cannot escape, Tristan wishes for nothing more but a wife who knows the best and the worst of him and loves him nonetheless. However, so far he hasn’t had any luck finding the woman of his dreams among the ladies of the ton.

Until the night of the Earl of Radcliff’s mask ball changes everything.

Elizabeth “Beth” Walker is faced with a terrible truth.

Upon her mother’s death, she learns that her life began far away from the simple, hard-working existence she’s always known. Determined to discover the truth of her mother’s past as well as her own, she finds a position in the household of the Earl of Radcliff only to discover that often people are not who they appear to be. Before long, Beth’s priorities shift as the future suddenly holds more sway over her than the past ever could and her heart leads her down a different path.

Will Beth uncover the reason for her mother’s silence? Will Tristan live long enough to find the woman of his dreams? In a world where a privileged upbringing is not always what it seems and simple joys can outweigh high social standing, two people must face their past and determine who they are on their own apart from the lies their parents forced on them.

“Smith is a very funny writer with a nice feel for the absurdities of urban life.” -San Francisco Examiner

Edgar Award-Winning Author

WHAT SHE’S ABOUT TO LEARN WILL ROCK HER WORLD!

Rebecca Schwartz, “Jewish feminist lawyer,” as she’s fond of saying, thought she knew her best friend–and her boy friend. Not to mention her family. But everything’s about to change.

Secrets spill out of these pages like hornets out of a nest, each with its own distinct sting, as author Smith weaves a thrill-packed and complicated San Francisco mystery that’s as much about how little we know about our nearest and dearest as it is about whodunit.

Rebecca’s shocked when Chris Nicholson, her glamorous law partner, is arrested for murder–but not nearly so shocked as when she discovers Chris can’t come up with an alibi. What she was doing, Chris says, involves a secret so damaging she’d be drummed out of San Francisco legal circles if anyone knew. All she’ll say is what her secret isn’t–crime, drugs, sex, alcohol, addiction, illness (mental or otherwise), or an eating disorder. So what’s left? Sure enough, when Rebecca uncovers it, her world tilts on its axis—and continues to list, ever more dangerously, as the story picks up speed and this formerly rational lawyer (and, ok, amateur detective) finds her worldview threatened by things she never knew existed. At least not in her circle! And Chris is far from the only one with a skeleton in her closet.

The murdered man, Jason McKendrick, was a much-loved columnist, a carefree bachelor with a million glamorous women, who also happened to have a very special friend who slept on a filthy mattress in his apartment. As Rebecca and Chris peel back the layers of Jason’s complicated world, they find he was leading not just a double life, but maybe many more. Only one person knows what made him tick. But can she stay alive long enough to tell his story?

“Great book about a true American hero. Miss U could have gone the easy route but was on a mission. Well-written interesting story.” -Stephen B.

Miss U, first published in 1948, is the autobiographical account of Margaret Utinsky’s experiences in the Philippines during the Second World War.

In addition to her work as a nurse caring for wounded soldiers, Utinsky was instrumental in setting up an underground network to smuggle food, medicine, and money to Allied prisoners-of-war held at Camps O’Donnell and Cabanatuan (many of whom were survivors of the infamous Bataan Death March).

Her code-name in the network was “Miss U.”

However, she was eventually captured by the Japanese and subjected to 32 days of imprisonment and torture at Fort Santiago in Manila.

Following her release, and after six weeks in a hospital for treatment of her injuries, she left Manila and returned to the Bataan Peninsula, again serving as a nurse to guerrilla fighters.

After American forces regained the Philippines, Utinsky was attached to the U.S. Army’s Counter Intelligence Corps to help identify collaborators and those involved in the torture of prisoners.

With the end of the war, she returned to the United States, and was awarded the Medal of Freedom in 1946.

Margaret Elizabeth Doolin Utinsky (August 26, 1900 – August 30, 1970) was an American nurse who worked with the Filipino resistance movement to provide medicine, food, and other items to aid Allied prisoners of war in the Philippines during World War II. She was recognized in 1946 with the Medal of Freedom for her actions.

Love doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance.

Billionaire hotel magnate Wyatt Haines doesn’t believe in ghosts or anything that stretches his definition of normal. Unfortunately, his new Victorian inn appears to be extremely haunted and his only hope for evicting the ghosts and opening on time is the snarky ghost exterminator who’s been shunning normalcy ever since she started seeing ghosts as a kid.

But when her extermination goes awry, Wyatt winds up with two prankster ghosts inhabiting his body and haunting him. This skeptic is going to have to start believing in ghosts—and Jo—fast. Especially when every time he falls asleep, the mischievous ghosts take over, turning his perfectly ordered life into chaos.

With Jo’s mojo on the fritz when they need it most, they’re stuck with one another until they can figure out how to unhaunt Wyatt and his inn. Preferably before his spirit is permanently separated from his mouth-watering body. And before her heart is permanently attached to the most sexy, frustrating, normal man she’s ever met.
