Jackson Burnett's legal mystery, The Past Never Ends, provides a compelling whodunit while exploring the pursuit of justice. Penned in the tradition of Erle Stanley Gardner or Scott Turow, the story is set where the Old South meets the New West. For the reader who seeks the new but understands the new is really old, or who enjoys a touch of noir, this is the book. -- Jackie King, author of The Inconvenient Corpse A simple task, Attorney Chester Morgan thinks. Get a copy of a public record for a young man whose only friend has died in an unexplained accidental death. Except... The police file regarding the demise of sex worker Tanya Everly has been sealed by the order of the chief of police, and no one will talk. Warned to drop the matter, Attorney Morgan knows that if he doesn't speak for the dead young woman, no one will. Haunted by his discovery of the body of a prominent local oilman, Morgan pursues a quest for justice that puts his reputation, career, and life at risk. A journey that takes him into the dark shadows of the sex-for-sale business, into the marble courtrooms of Oklahoma, and into the aching loneliness of his own soul. Set in the American Southwest in the days before 9/11, The Past Never Ends is both a complex murder mystery and a meditation on the self-perpetuating nature of injustice and the ethereal nature of justice itself.

"The Night Never Sleeps" is a dark and intense collection of poetry, brings together author Brain M. Spradlin's favorite poems from his past with a voluminous amount of recent work. Filled with despair and soul-searching, both for the elements that have passed him by and for the desire to find meaning and relevance, this collection visits recurring themes of solitude, darkness, relationships, and distrust. In the selection "Lament" Spradlin writes about the darkness: / night shines a deadly smile at me / let the sinners roam and flee / it's in this world that i relate / to things that i've yet to create / and so the march goes on and on / as i attempt to block the sun / because brightness never has been me / let me lament to let things be. / let be. / An avid poet and songwriter for more than twenty years, Spradlin penned the bulk of the poems in the hushed cold of winter. Like the season they were written in, the feelings are sometimes frigid, but also thoughtful and provocative. In "The Night Never Sleeps, " Spradlin shares the demons he has conquered and the ones he has yet to vanquish.

This searching interpretation of past and present addresses fundamental questions about the fall of the Roman Empire. Why did ancient culture, once so strong and rich, come to an end? Was it destroyed by weaknesses inherent in its nature? Or were mistakes made that could have been avoided-was there a point at which Greco-Roman society took a wrong turn? And in what ways is modern society different? Schiavone's lively and provocative examination of the ancient world, "the eternal theater of history and power," offers a stimulating opportunity to view modern society in light of the experience of antiquity.

Winner of the Windham Campbell Prize • A Washington Post Best Book of the Year • A Time Best Book of the Year • A San Francisco Chronicle Top 10 Book of the Year • A Huffington Post Best Fiction Book of the Year • A New York Times Editors’ Choice In her most accessible, commercial novel yet, the “supremely perceptive writer of formidable skill and intelligence (New York Times Book Review) turns her astute eye to a dramatic family reunion, where simmering tensions and secrets come to a head over three long, hot summer weeks. With five novels and two collections of stories, Tessa Hadley has earned a reputation as a fiction writer of remarkable gifts. She brings all of her considerable skill and an irresistible setup to The Past, a novel in which three sisters, a brother, and their children assemble at their country house. These three weeks may be their last time there; the upkeep is prohibitive, and they may be forced to sell this beloved house filled with memories of their shared past (their mother took them there to live when she left their father). Yet beneath the idyllic pastoral surface, hidden passions, devastating secrets, and dangerous hostilities threaten to consume them. Sophisticated and sleek, Roland’s new wife (his third) arouses his sisters’ jealousies and insecurities. Kasim, the twenty-year-old son of Alice’s ex-boyfriend, becomes enchanted with Molly, Roland’s sixteen-year-old daughter. Fran’s young children make an unsettling discovery in a dilapidated cottage in the woods that shatters their innocence. Passion erupts where it’s least expected, leveling the quiet self-possession of Harriet, the eldest sister. Over the course of this summer holiday, the family’s stories and silences intertwine, small disturbances build into familial crises, and a way of life—bourgeois, literate, ritualized, Anglican—winds down to its inevitable end. With subtle precision and deep compassion, Tessa Hadley brilliantly evokes a brewing storm of lust and envy, the indelible connections of memory and affection, the fierce, nostalgic beauty of the natural world, and the shifting currents of history running beneath the surface of these seemingly steady lives. The result is a novel of breathtaking skill and scope that showcases this major writer’s extraordinary talents.
