A Talent for Murder
by Andrew Wilson

Most people don't realize that Agatha Christie had her own real-life mystery during her lifetime—she went missing for 11 days. After learning about her husband's mistress, Agatha disappeared, leaving behind her car perched on a clifftop. The public went mad: Was she kidnapped? Had she run off with a lover? Taken drastic measures? Was it all a publicity stunt? When she resurfaced Agatha claimed amnesia, and no one knows the truth behind her secret vanishing. In A TALENT FOR MURDER, Andrew Wilson explores a fictional explanation for her whereabouts involving blackmail, murder, and putting Christie's formidable mind to the test.

Asymmetry
by Lisa Halliday

A brilliant literary novel, ASYMMETRY is about a young American editor and her relationship with a famous and much older writer and about an Iraqi-American man detained by immigration officers on his way to visit his brother in Kurdistan. These two seemingly different stories interact and overlap to ask arresting questions about the very nature of fiction itself.

You
by Caroline Kepnes

YOU is a hypnotic tale of obsession, the dangers of social media, and murderous manipulation. When a bookseller encounters a beautiful customer, he tracks her down via her credit card and quickly inserts himself into her life.

You
Caroline Kepnes

Joe doesn’t like artisanal soda, trust fund kids, Dan Brown, Brooklyn hipsters, or Vice magazine. He does, however, like you, ever since you walked into his East Village bookshop looking like Natalie Portman. Shame that Joe is a cold-blooded killer and adept stalker. In the all-too-rare second-person narrative, YOU takes place inside the obsessed brain of Joe Goldberg, who’ll stop at nothing to make boho-wannabe Guinevere Beck (the “you” of Kepnes’s page-turning novel) his.

Crazy like: The lovesick and the just-plain-sick.

Best crazy moment: The DA VINCI CODE reading marathon.
