Summary

Plenty of retirees have hobbies; Gloria’s just happens to be murderous . . . An entertaining new crime thriller by the author of Bang Bang, You’re Dead.

So when Gloria encounters a distraught young girl and learns about a shadowy London gang of human traffickers exploiting women, she simply can’t let such injustice stand. After all, it’s not the first time she has stopped vicious criminals from hurting someone . . . Then again, her health isn’t what it used to be—and this time, there’s a distinct possibility she could wind up dead . . .

    He’s seeking a place to belong. His only tool is philosophical satire… 
    Thomas Gephardt loses no love for his rural Indiana home. Struck with raging wanderlust, the small-town college student heads for France armed with nothing but a thirst for stimulating conversation. So starts Thomas’s ego-bruising first leg of his ill-fated quest for cultural perfection. 
    Struggling to fit in at the catty French cafés, Thomas expands his search to the bustling city streets of Japan and the quiet devotion of an Israeli Kibbutz. But after each stopover leaves him with more questions than answers, he worries no location will check every box on his ideal society list. 
    Thomas attempts to probe deeply into his experiences and to ponder big questions: What is the value of foreign travel? What is unique about each of these three cultures? How is each country shaped by its history? Will Thomas find his far-flung utopian land, or is this American expat lost in transit? 
    The Perfect Culture is a darkly satirical standalone travel novel.Thomas is seen as an alien in a French restaurant, he wonders if he can meet expectations as a "talking monkey" in Japan, and he learns that unlike in The Big Lebowski, he definitely cannot roll on Shabbos in Israel. If you enjoy candid cultural commentary and extensive internal reflections, then you’ll love Brent Robins’s international lampoon.

    Rebel Catholic daughter. Huge military family.  Sixties. Feel-good fiction. Humorous, award-winning novel. 
    "enough charm to fill the corridors of Vatican City twice over" - Foreward Reviews 
    Number six and trapped in her huge, devout family in 1963, desperate-for-attention Annie Shea creates a hilarious campaign of lies when the pope dies and their family friend, Cardinal Stefanucci, is unexpectedly on the short list to be elected the first American pope. 
    Driven to exaggeration and trying to elevate her family to be the holiest of holy rollers in the parish, Annie is tortured by her own dishonesty. But when 'The Hands' visit her in her bed and when her sister finds herself facing a scandal, Annie discovers her parents will do almost anything to uphold their reputation and keep their secrets safe. 
    Questioning all she has believed and torn between her own gut instinct and years of Catholic guilt, Annie takes courageous risks to wrest salvation from the tragic sequence of events set in motion by her parents betrayal. 
    "Annie's disarming voice evokes nostalgia for a bygone era and hope for humanity in a weary, modern world." - Kirkus Reviews

    “A consummate tragicomedy of African American family secrets and sorrows, and of faith under duress . . . a shout-hallelujah tale of transgression and grace.” —Booklist Sixteen-year-old Elwyn Parker is a member of the austere community of Christian believers at the Church of Our Blessed Redeemer Who Walked Upon the Waters, a devout and sincere piano prodigy who learns too late that the saintly girl he has had a crush on all his life is inexplicably pregnant and soon to be wed. Then the beautiful forty-two-year-old widow, Sister Morrisohn, in the midst of the confused emotions of her grieving, ends up in Elwyn's arms.  Despite the problems posed by their age difference and the strict prohibitions of their strong religious beliefs, Elwyn and Sister Morrisohn's love is true, and as it grows among the ascetics, abstainers, and holy ghost rollers of their church, it exposes with wit, poignancy, and insight the dark secrets and ancient crimes of the pious. In Jesus Boy, “by turns solemn and funny” (The New York Times), Elwyn learns through tragedy and epiphany that the holy are no different from the rest of us.  “Heartfelt and occasionally hilarious, Jesus Boy is a tender masterpiece.” —Dennis Lehane, New York Times–bestselling author of Mystic River and Since We Fell
