Celine

Peter Heller

Working out of her apartment at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, Celine has made a career of tracking down missing persons, and she has a better record at it than the FBI. Then a young woman named Gabriela asks for her help locating her father, a photographer who went missing on the border of Montana and Wyoming. He was assumed to have died from a grizzly mauling, but his body was never found. Now, as Celine and her partner head to Yellowstone National Park, it becomes clear that they are being followed--that this is a case someone desperately wants to keep closed.

The Forgotten Girls

Owen Laukkanen

She was a forgotten girl, a runaway found murdered on the High Line train through the northern Rocky Mountains and, with little local interest, put into a dead file. But she was not alone. When Kirk Stevens and Carla Windermere of the joint FBI-BCA violent crime force stumble upon the case, they discover a string of murders on the High Line, all of them young women drifters. Through the bleak midwinter, Stevens and Windermere follow a frustratingly light trail of clues--and where it ends, even they will be shocked. A blistering new crime novel from Laukkanen (The Watcher in the Wall, 2016).

Ice Ghosts: The Epic Hunt for the Lost Franklin Expedition

Paul Watson

Canadian journalist Paul Watson was on board a Coast Guard icebreaker in 2014 when the HMS Erebus, one of two vessels of the lost 1845 Franklin Expedition, was found underwater, remarkably intact, off Victoria Island. The other vessel, the HMS Terror, was found in 2016, not too far south. In Ice Ghosts, Watson tells the full story: Sir John Franklin and his crew of 128 men setting off in search of the fabled Northwest Passage; getting stuck in the ice miles from the nearest outpost; the decades of searching that turned up sailors' bones, and finally, the discovery of the ships with the help of scientists, researchers, divers, and the local Inuit.

Richard Nixon: The Life

John A. Farrell

Journalist and author John A. Farrell presents the life and legacy of the controversial yet fascinating politician, Richard Nixon (1913–94). This extensively researched portrait traces Nixon’s early political ambitions, his achievements as a Senator and Vice President, and his forward-thinking ideas on health care, poverty, civil rights, the environment, and foreign affairs. "But behind this laudable legacy, Farrell discerns a politician haunted by personal insecurity, even paranoia, that ultimately motivates him to create the Plumbers, the unit whose Watergate break-in results in a failed cover-up and an end to his Presidency."
