Jean Hanff Korelitz's The Plot, which has been hailed as “breathtakingly suspenseful,” is a propulsive read about a story too good not to steal, and the writer who steals it.

In John McMahon's A Good Kill, it has been years since the mysterious deaths of his wife and child, and P.T. Marsh, a police detective in the small Georgia town of Mason Falls, has faced demons both professional and personal. When he is called to the scene of a school shooting, the professional and personal become intertwined, and he suspects that whoever is behind the crime may be connected to his own family tragedy. As Marsh and his partner Remy investigate the shooting, they discover that it is far from straightforward, and their search for answers leads them to a conspiracy at the highest levels of local government—including within the police force. The stakes in the case become increasingly high, culminating in a showdown that has Marsh questioning everything he knows, and wondering if some secrets are better left undiscovered.

Jean Hanff Korelitz is the author of the novels You Should Have Known (which aired on HBO in October 2020 as The Undoing, starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant, and Donald Sutherland), Admission (adapted as a film in 2013 starring Tina Fey), The Devil and Webster, The White Rose, The Sabbath Day River, and A Jury of Her Peers, as well as Interference Powder, a novel for children. Her company BOOKTHEWRITER hosts pop-up book groups in which small groups of readers discuss new books with their authors. She lives in New York City with her husband, Irish poet Paul Muldoon.

John McMahon’s debut, The Good Detective, was called “pretty much perfect” by the New York Times and listed in its Top Ten Crime Novels of 2019. His follow up, The Evil Men Do, was also a New York Times Top Ten Crime Novel for 2020.
