Former Department of Defense analyst Lewis Cole has traveled some dark roads before in his quest for justice. Days after a violent anti-nuclear demonstration puts his best friend, police detective Diane Woods, in a near-fatal coma, Cole abandons his job and his home to find the man who nearly killed his friend. From the rural towns of New Hampshire to the offices of power and influence in Washington, D.C., Cole follows his gut and the flimsiest of clues to track down the cold-blooded attacker who won’t hesitate to kill to keep his identity and background secret. Aided by Felix Tinios, a security consultant from Boston’s North End, Cole is shadowed by armed and dark men with their own agenda to stop him from learning the truth about what really happened the day his friend was attacked on the grounds of a controversial nuclear power plant. Suffering loss, heartache, and betrayal along the way, Cole is soon standing alone, facing his own ultimate test in how far he will go to avenge a friend. In the eighth novel of the acclaimed Lewis Cole series, award-winning author Brendan DuBois returns once again to one of the most appealing heroes in mystery fiction.

To Christina Olson, the entire world is her family farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. The only daughter in a family of sons, Christina is tied to her home by health and circumstance, and seems destined for a small life. Instead, she becomes Andrew Wyeth’s first great inspiration, and the subject of one of the best-known paintings of the twentieth century, Christina’s World. As she did in her beloved bestseller Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction to vividly reimagine a real moment in history. A Piece of the World is a powerful story of the flesh-and-blood woman behind the portrait, her complicated relationship to her family and inheritance, and how artist and muse can come together to forge a new and timeless legacy.
