  • The Cold Hard Light is a spare and bracing literary debut that tells the story of a new father who falls into the grip of obsession.

    The novel begins when the man who assaulted Andrew Harrison’s sister is released from prison. Benjamin Williams was barely more than a kid when he was sentenced to eleven years, but it is impossible to know what he has become since. Andrew, nicknamed H, is compelled to learn for himself when his uncle Billy hands him a gun and says to go find the man. As H’s interest in Williams grows, he struggles to keep his world in balance. His hockey career has stalled, his girlfriend suffers from postpartum depression that is neither understood nor diagnosed, and the allure of vengeance threatens to erase his moral self.

    Set in present-day Boston, The Cold Hard Light explores the drama of modern American urban life, where the poor work gig jobs that cater to the rich, where race can be weaponized, guns are treated like toys, and the desire to blame others trumps the need to understand them. These forces and more weigh upon the characters in this crystalline novel, hurtling them toward an irrevocable conclusion.

  • The riveting new thriller from Marshall Karp, cocreator and coauthor, with James Patterson, of the #1 New York Times bestselling NYPD Red series

    The most powerful drug lord on the planet, Joaquín Alboroto, has a gift for New York City—four thousand pounds of uncut cocaine burying Central Park and raining death upon hundreds of innocent people enjoying a summer afternoon. The only NYPD unit trained to go up against this level of terrorism has been disbanded, so the task falls to former NYPD captain Danny Corcoran. In this heart-stopping, unflinching, and highly entertaining thriller of life and death, drugs and heroism, Corcoran leads a team of retired top cops, funded by four anonymous billionaires, on a mission to stop Alboroto before it’s too late.
