New Signed UK Books from the Poisoned Pen

Booth, Stephen. Kill Call (Collins $45 Signed).

A rainswept Derbyshire moor. The body of a well dressed man with a crushed head. A violent world of hunting and hunt saboteurs. And an ancient plague village where the Black Death visitation has been Disney-fied. Cops Fry and Cooper get it all in another atmospheric novel for fans of Reg Hill - whose new Dalziel/Pascoe novel Midnight Fugue (Collins $32 Signed) publishes in May - and Peter Robinson. And here, CJ Box - and he arrives here June 16 with a new Joe Pickett case called Below Zero (Putnam $26).

Child, Lee. Gone Tomorrow (Transworld $43 Signed).

Jack Reacher shows some special survival skills on a big stage: New York City, quite a lot of it riding the underground rails. We have about a dozen left so don't delay ordering yours.

Gimenez, Mark. The Common Lawyer (LittleBrown UK $31 Signed).

A big mystery is why Texas lawyer Gimenez's fine novels are published in the UK but not the US. Here we get Andy Prescott, the most laid-back young lawyer in Austin, Texas. Into traffic law, he operates from a small room above a ramshackle tattoo parlor. He rides a trail bike and spends way too much time drinking beer in the sunshine...until one of Texas's wealthiest men walks into his office. On the spot, billionaire Russell Reeves retains Andy as his lawyer and, in exchange for some easy legal work, pays him more money than he has ever earned before. Andy's life is transformed. But nothing comes for free. Russell is a desperate man whose sole aim is to save his eight-year-old son, Zach, who is dying from leukemia. He is prepared to do anything for Zach....
