From the Publisher

The #1 internationally bestselling thriller, and ingenious book within a book, about the disappearance of a 15-year-old New Hampshire girl and, 30 years later, a young American writer's determination to clear his mentor's name-and find the inspiration for his next bestseller
 

August 30, 1975: the day fifteen-year-old Nola Kellergan is glimpsed fleeing through the woods before she disappears; the day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence.
 
Thirty-three years later, Marcus Goldman, a successful young novelist, visits Somerset to see his mentor, Harry Quebert, one of America's most respected writers, and to find a cure for his writer's block as his publisher's deadline looms. But Marcus's plans are violently upended when Harry is suddenly and sensationally implicated in the cold-case murder of Nola Kellergan-whom, he admits, he had an affair with. As the national media convicts Harry, Marcus launches his own investigation, following a trail of clues through his mentor's books, the backwoods and isolated beaches of New Hampshire, and the hidden history of Somerset's citizens and the man they hold most dear. To save Harry, his writing career, and eventually even himself, Marcus must answer three questions, all of which are mysteriously connected: Who killed Nola Kellergan? What happened one misty morning in Somerset in the summer of 1975? And how do you write a successful and true novel?
 
A global phenomenon, with sales approaching a million copies in France alone and rights sold in more than thirty countries, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair is a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller, and an ingenious book within a book, by a dazzling young writer.

    The Girls Off The Cliff

    SARAH BEGLEY PAULA HAWKINS RODE TO fame on her 2015 hit The Girl on the Train, a book that deftly deploys the “girl” thriller subgenre that includes Gone Girl, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Before, The Girl from Home, The Girl on the Bridge and The Girls on the Bus Go Round and Round. (O.K., that last one’s not real—yet.) These books center on complicated, flawed or unlikable female protagonists, boldly going where so many males have gone before. Though it doesn’t have “girl” in the title, Hawkins’ new book is in the same vein. Into the Water once again throws a group of women to

    8 Summer Books To Read On The Beach This Memorial Day Weekend

    While summer will not officially begin until late June (the exact date depends on your time zone), Memorial Day Weekend has generally been understood as the unofficial start of the season.

For some, t
