Would you kill someone to save yourself? Jessie Doyle, a twenty-three-year-old college graduate, never believed she would until she became trapped in her own life-threatening dilemma. From the moment they met, Luke Rogers knew he'd one day possess Jessie's soul. He set out and accomplished just that. Blinded by love, Jessie was tangled tighter in his web of deceit. After months of psychological and physical abuse, being held captive by the threat he'd kill her if she ever left him, and the loss of her unborn child at the hands of his assault, Jessie devised a desperate plan to escape. Convinced Luke would kill her, Jessie realized the only way she'd ever be free would be to kill him—first. Finally, he was dead. But who really killed Luke Rogers? Consumed with guilt, Jessie left the horrors of her hometown. When she took a job in northern Vermont, she thought she was leaving her old life behind. But someone followed her who believes he knows the truth. Accident or not, Jessie must have played some part in killing Luke. And she should suffer for that—in fact, she should die. To save herself, Jessie must uncover the stalker's identity. But what will she do when she knows? She has to protect the secret and keep herself from being murdered in the process. In doing so, she may be involved in killing someone—for the second time. In Hush Little Baby, Don't You Cry you'll be seized on page one and held spellbound to the end as Bobbie J.A. Pfeifer takes you on a breathtaking journey into the world of a tortured young woman who's desperate to regain her life.

Rhys Bowen's brilliant wit and charm are on full display in Hush Now, Don't You Cry, another outstanding addition to her Agatha and Anthony award-winning historical series. Molly Murphy is supposed to give up sleuthing now that she's married, but the murder of an alderman puts her on the trail of a killer.

Mary Gaitskill returns with a luminous new collection of stories—her first in more than ten years. In “College Town l980,” young people adrift in Ann Arbor debate the meaning of personal strength at the start of the Reagan era; in the urban fairy tale “Mirrorball,” a young man steals a girl’s soul during a one-night stand; in “The Little Boy,” a woman haunted by the death of her former husband is finally able to grieve through a mysterious encounter with a needy child. Each story delivers the powerful, original language, and the dramatic engagement of the intelligent mind with the craving body—or of the intelligent body with the craving mind—that has come to be seen as stunningly emblematic of Gaitskill’s fiction.
