Here’s what’s new in bookstores this week:
▪ No Man’s Land, by David Baldacci (Grand Central Publishing, $29) — The bestselling author’s fourth thriller featuring military investigator John Puller revolves around the disappearance of his mother nearly three decades ago. Now, Puller’s father, who’s suffering from dementia and living in a veterans hospital, has been accused of murdering his wife. But, under threat of court martial, Puller is ordered to sit this investigation out, but he’s determined to discover the truth.
▪ The Sleeping Beauty Killer, by Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke (Simon & Schuster, $26.99) —The bestselling author and co-author present the third thriller in their “Under Suspicion” series. The Under Suspicion news team and producer Laurie Moran dramatize the case of Casey Carter, who says she was wrongly convicted of murdering her philanthropist fiance 15 years ago. Laurie is convinced Casey is innocent — but the new on-air host has another point of view.
▪ This Was a Man, by Jeffrey Archer (St. Martin’s Press, $28.99) — The author completes the seventh and final volume of his bestselling “Clifton Chronicles.” All loose ends are tied up (are married couple Harry Clifton and Emma Barrington really brother and sister?) and there is no cliffhanger ending for this sweeping family saga unfolding in the 20th century. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of twists — truths uncovered, a shot fired and a shocking diagnosis delivered.
