An old man is dying. When the old man is dead they will come for him. And they will come for her, to make him hurt. John Hart has written three New York Times bestsellers and won an unprecedented two back-to-back Edgar Awards. His books have been called "masterful" (Jeffery Deaver) and "gripping" (People) with "Grisham-style intrigue and Turow-style brooding" (The New York Times). Now he delivers his fourth novel—a gut-wrenching, heart-stopping thriller no reader will soon forget. HE WOULD GO TO HELL At the Iron Mountain Home for Boys, there was nothing but time. Time to burn and time to kill, time for two young orphans to learn that life isn't won without a fight. Julian survives only because his older brother, Michael, is fearless and fiercely protective. When tensions boil over and a boy is brutally killed, there is only one sacrifice left for Michael to make: He flees the orphanage and takes the blame with him. TO KEEP HER SAFE For two decades, Michael has been an enforcer in New York's world of organized crime, a prince of the streets so widely feared he rarely has to kill anymore. But the life he's fought to build unravels when he meets Elena, a beautiful innocent who teaches him the meaning and power of love. He wants a fresh start with her, the chance to start a family like the one he and Julian never had. But someone else is holding the strings. And escape is not that easy. . . . GO TO HELL, AND COME BACK BURNING The mob boss who gave Michael his blessing to begin anew is dying, and his son is intent on making Michael pay for his betrayal. Determined to protect the ones he loves, Michael spirits Elena—who knows nothing of his past crimes, or the peril he's laid at her door— back to North Carolina, to the place he was born and the brother he lost so long ago. There, he will encounter a whole new level of danger, a thicket of deceit and violence that leads inexorably to the one place he's been running from his whole life: Iron House. Now with an excerpt of John Hart's next book The Hush, available in February 2018.

Beyond the Iron House is a critical study of a crucial period of life and work of the modern Chinese writer Lu Xun. Through thorough research into historical materials and archives, the author demonstrates that Lu Xun was recognized in the literary field much later than has hitherto been argued. Neither the appearance of "Kuangren riji" (Diary of a madman) in 1918 nor the publication of Nahan (Outcry) in 1923 had catapulted the author into nationwide prominence; in comparison with his contemporaries, neither was his literary work as original and unique as many have claimed, nor were his thoughts and ideas as popular and influential as many have believed; like many other agents in the literary field, Lu Xun was actively involved in power struggles over what was at stake in the field; Lu Xun was later built into an iconic figure and the blind worship of him hindered a better and more authentic understanding of many other modern writers and intellectuals such as Gao Changhong and Zhou Zuoren, whose complex relationships with Lu Xun are fully explored and analysed in the book.

Beyond the Iron House: Ecological Thinking in Modern Chinese Literature, 1917-1937 argues that ecological thinking is at the epicenter of Chinese modernity. Analyzing how modern Chinese writers and intellectuals engage the environment, nonhumans, and anthropocentrism, the dissertation shows how the literary and cultural productions of Republican China contributed to not only the rise of the human, but also the birth of the nonhuman. From 1917 to 1937--between the New Culture movement and the Nanjing Massacre--the most important writers, poets, thinkers, and filmmakers of modern China managed to do what few of their Western contemporaries did in the early 20th century: they viewed modernity as coexisting with the nonhuman world. The dissertation not only introduces ecological criticism as a method to the study of modern Chinese literature, but also brings China studies in closer dialogue with the environmental humanities at large.

The Iron Horse is a vivid and darkly comic tale about a girl growing up in gritty working-class New England. Horse-crazy Sunny Quinn spends her childhood toiling long hours in relentless pursuit of entry into the elite world of competitive Saddleseat Equitation. Her weight, her lack of money, her crushing shyness and her tyrannical stepfather all contribute to Sunny’s spectacular failure, with harrowing and far-reaching consequences. The story takes the reader on a wild ride through the depths of addiction, crime, sacrifice and suffering set against the backdrop of scorching first love. Filled with memorable characters and encompassing the timely themes of determination and endurance, The Iron Horse is ultimately a story about the lies we tell ourselves, and the twisted road to redemption.
