Summary

Kept 
An Erin Lee Thriller 
Inspired by a true story 
Bree’s destiny had always been kept. 
Like a dirty secret, it was nearly impossible to escape a certain dark fate. A victim of circumstance determined to survive, she only wanted someone to trust. But it wouldn’t come easy. 
First, it was the family life that forced her to run away from home at age fifteen. 
Next, it was her son’s father, Le, who pulled her from friends, locking her into a toxic web of abuse and drugs. 
Then came the addiction, which chained her to methadone clinics and seclusion. 
In spite of it all, Bree refused to allow anyone to put out her fire, which burned brightest in the love of her son, Noah. 
Just when she was beginning to turn things around and had repaired her relationships, came the final blow. 
Locked in isolation and desperate for someone to put her trust in, Bree began talking to a mysterious man over the Internet. Placing her trust in him was the biggest mistake of her life. 
Now, caught in his evil web, she must decide—once and for all—how to take control of her life. 
It starts with a can of gasoline and a simple spark. From there, comes the fire. 
In the end, she determines, it won’t be Bree who is kept by anyone ever again.

    All Fun and Games Until Somebody...

    Brookmyre's Parlabane novels have sold more than one million copies in the UK, where he is a perennial bestseller. He is an important and well-loved figure in Scottish crime writing, along with the likes of Denise Mina and Val McDermid.
    
    We are working hard to build Brookmyre's American audience and as part of that effort have signed up two titles from his backlist that are favorites among his international audience and which we will publish for the first time in the US: All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye and The Sacred Art of Stealing.
    
    These earlier novels hew closer to the Carl Hiaasen-style blend of dark humor, oddball characters, and ingenious plotting for which Brookmyre originally became known. All Fun and Games Until Somebody Loses an Eye won the 2006 Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, the UK’s only literary award for comic literature (other winners include Alexander McCall Smith, Edward St. Aubyn, Howard Jacobson, Will Self, and Gary Shteyngart). 
    
    Brookmyre’s most recent frontlist title, The Last Hack (2017), received incredible review coverage, including raves from Maureen Corrigan in the Washington Post and Daneet Steffens in the Boston Globe. The book was mentioned by both Carl Hiaasen and Diana Gabaldon in the Washington Post round-up "What your favorite writers are reading this summer" and by Val McDermid in the Observer's round-up of "best holiday reads 2017." It was also longlisted for the 2017 McIlvanney Prize for Scottish crime book of the year and received blurbs from Lorenzo Carcaterra, John Gilstrap, Diana Gabaldon, Chris Pavone, Joe Ide, and Thomas Perry. 
    
    Though incremental, we've seen a nice upward sales trend for Brookmyre's recent books. 2016's Black Widow netted almost double the number 2015's Dead Girl Walking did in cloth, and we have shipped almost 30% more copies of The Last Hack than we did for Black Widow. 
    
    Brookmyre has devoted fans among readers and critics here in the US, including Charles McGrath at the New York Times.

    The ten brilliant women who are the focus of Sharp came from different backgrounds and had vastly divergent political and artistic opinions. But they all made a significant contribution to the cultural and intellectual history of America and ultimately changed the course of the twentieth century, in spite of the men who often undervalued or dismissed their work.  
     These ten women—Dorothy Parker, Rebecca West, Hannah Arendt, Mary McCarthy, Susan Sontag, Pauline Kael, Joan Didion, Nora Ephron, Renata Adler, and Janet Malcolm—are united by what Dean calls “sharpness,” the ability to cut to the quick with precision of thought and wit. Sharp is a vibrant depiction of the intellectual beau monde of twentieth-century New York, where gossip-filled parties at night gave out to literary slugging-matches in the pages of the Partisan Review or the New York Review of Books. It is also a passionate portrayal of how these women asserted themselves through their writing in a climate where women were treated with extreme condescension by the male-dominated cultural establishment.  
     Mixing biography, literary criticism, and cultural history, Sharp is a celebration of this group of extraordinary women, an engaging introduction to their works, and a testament to how anyone who feels powerless can claim the mantle of writer, and, perhaps, change the world.

    Breaking the world is a hard act to follow. A wild, supernatural ride. 
    The sea may have been a harsh mistress, but Viktor longs for the challenges of wind and weather, for the sound of waves crashing over his hull. Turned by a Master Vampire, he hates what he’s become, but there’s no escape. Not from Ushuaia that’s turned into a city of bones, or from the Vampire who rules him. 
    Ketha and eleven other Shifters traveled to Ushuaia to harness the power of an eclipse and were trapped there when the world turned upside down. Ten years later, they’re staying one step ahead of Vampires who blame them for the cataclysm. 
    With her luck running low, Ketha turns her badly depleted magic on the Vampire assigned to lock her away and gets sucked in by her own spell. Maybe magic can’t save the world, but love might be able to salvage what’s left.
