Releases for the week of September 29th include MRS. LINCOLN'S RIVAL, in which Jennifer Chiaverini reveals, through fascinating historical fiction, the famous First Lady’s very public social and political contest with Kate Chase Sprague; THE MUSEUM OF EXTRAORDINARY THINGS by Alice Hoffman, the story of an electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first decades of the 20th century; and two books that dig deeper into the JFK assassination: FIVE DAYS IN NOVEMBER by Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin and HISTORY WILL PROVE US RIGHT by Howard P. Willens.

Christopher Reich, author of The Prince of Risk

Robert "Bobby" Astor is a fearless New York hedge-fund gunslinger on the verge of making his biggest killing ever. But everything changes when his father, the venerable chief executive of the New York Stock Exchange, is murdered along with the head of the Federal Reserve. In the moments before his death, Bobby's father sends him a mystifying text message that offers the only clue to the identity of the killer and the terrifying motivation behind the attack.
