Résumé: 
Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past - for Zoe, the death of her husband ; for Martin, a messy divorce. Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone to walk two thousand kilometres from Cluny to Santiago, in northwestern Spain, in the footsteps of pilgrims who have walked the Camino - the Way - for centuries. Two Steps Forward is about renewal - physical, psychological and spiritual. It's about what you decide to keep, what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover.

Résumé: 
This new collection of stories demonstrates that Richard Russo winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Empire Falls?is also a master of the short form. In Horseman, a young professor confronts an undergraduate plagiarist?as well as her own regrets. In Intervention, a realtor facing a serious medical prognosis finds himself in his late father's shadow. Voice gives us a semi-retired academic who is conned by his estranged brother into joining a group tour of the Venice Biennale. And Milton and Marcus takes us into a lapsed novelist's attempt to rekindle his screenwriting career. Shot through with Russo's inimitable humour, wisdom and surprise, Trajectory is the work of a masterful writer continuing to discover new heights.

For Advent Island is.a place beyond the reaches of even her. most fitful imaginings. It's not just the rats and the hordes of mosquitos and the weevils in the powdered milk. Past the confines of their stuffy little house, amidst the damp and the dust and the sweltering heat, rumours are spreading of devil chasers who roam the island on the hunt for evil spirits. And then there are the noises from the church at night. Yet, to the amusement of the locals and the bafflement of her husband, Bea gradually adapts to life on the island. But with the dreadful events heralded by the arrival of an unexpected, wildly irritating and always-humming house guest, Advent Island becomes a hostile place once again. And before long, trapped in the jungle and in the growing fever of her husband's insanity, Bea finds herself fighting for her freedom, and for her life.

Résumé: 
Disconnected from his history and careless of his future, Detective Aidan Waits has resigned himself to the night shift : an endless cycle of meaningless emergency calls and lonely dead ends. Until he and his partner, Detective Inspector Peter `Sutty' Sutcliffe, are summoned to the Palace, a vast disused hotel in the centre of a restless, simmering city. There they find the body of a man. He is dead. And he is smiling. The tags have been removed from the man's clothes. His teeth have been filed down and replaced. Even his fingertips are not his own. Only a patch sewn into the inside of his trousers gives any indication as to who he was, and to the desperate last act of his life .. But even as Waits pieces together this stranger's identity, someone is sifting through the shards of his own. When mysterious fires, anonymous phone calls and outright threats start to escalate, he realizes that a ghost from his own past haunts his every move. And to discover who the smiling man really is, he must finally confront himself.
