The Drift by C. J. Tudor

The Drift has already been optioned for television, but don’t wait for the TV series—this is a book that demands to be read now.” —Booklist, starred review

Seventy Times Seven: A True Story of Murder and Mercy by Alex Mar

“…Mar’s (Witches of America, 2015) expansive, humanitarian legal history is also an investigation of belief, from the intrinsic yet seemingly unachievable goal for justice to be clear and comprehensible to the Christian faith that propelled Bill Pelke and many more. This is an unsettling look at the recent past and a profoundly affecting read.” —Booklist, starred review

“An engrossing study of faith, forgiveness, and justice . . . Deeply reported and vividly written, this is a harrowing and thought-provoking portrait of crime and punishment.” Publishers Weekly, starred review
