FICTION


Age of Vice by Deepti Kapoor

“Impossible to put down; Kapoor is the real thing.” —Library Journal, starred review

“Kapoor’s frenetic and colorful novel highlights the new global pecking order, one forged by capitalism, in which the rich always win.”— Booklist, starred review

“Deeply addictive; this spellbinder would be easy to devour in one big gulp, but it’s worth savoring for Neda’s uncompromising take on what she terms India’s ‘losing age, the age of vice.’ The author possesses a talent great enough to match the massive scope of her subject.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Loyalty by Lisa Scottoline

History fans will appreciate the novel’s well-researched foundation, especially concerning the origins of the Sicilian Mafia and early mental-health institutions.”—Booklist, starred review
