Releases for the week of June 9th include SWEET SALT AIR by Barbara Delinsky, the story of a woman who has a secret that may save the life of her best friend's husband --- or destroy him; BIG BROTHER, a striking novel from Lionel Shriver that asks just how much sacrifice we'll make to save single members of our families, and whether it's ever possible to save loved ones from themselves; and THE TILTED WORLD by Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly, an extraordinary tale of murder and moonshine, sandbagging and saboteurs, and a man and a woman who find unexpected love.

Mark Billingham, author of The Dying Hours: A Tom Thorne Novel

Tom Thorne becomes convinced that a spate of suicides among the elderly in London are something more sinister. His concerns are dismissed by the Murder Squad he was once part of and he is forced to investigate alone. Now, unable to trust anybody, Thorne risks losing those closest to him as well as endangering those being targeted by a killer unlike any he has hunted before.
