In Marcia Muller's LOCKED IN, San Francisco private eye Sharon McCone was shot in the head and suffered from locked-in syndrome: almost total paralysis but with an alert, conscious mind. Now, in COMING BACK, Sharon's friend from physical therapy goes missing, causing Sharon to call upon those closest to her to find out the truth behind the disappearance.

Jonathan Frazen's first novel in nine years, FREEDOM is an epic novel of contemporary love and marriage. Comically and tragically, Frazen captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, and the heavy weight of empire.
