The thrilling true story of how Putin’s spy agency, run by the Russian billionaire class, used the promise of power and influence to cultivate Trump as well as his closest aides, the Kremlin Crew, to become unwitting assets of the Russian government. The goal? To put an end to 240 years of free and fair American democratic elections.

New from a rising star historian (and playwright!) who we see as the next Stacy Schiff or Amanda Foreman. Russell presents a vivid and authoritative biography that sheds new light on Catherine’s rise and the forces that led to her death at the executioner’s block. The broad outlines of her sixteen-month career as King Henry VIII’s fifth wife might be familiar, but her story until now has been incomplete.

For Héctor and Lilia, pursuit of the American Dream became every parent’s worst fear when their infant daughter vanished as they crossed from Mexico to the United States—now they must try to get her back. In luminous, compassionate prose, Michel Stone drops readers into the whirlwind of the contemporary immigrant experience, where a marriage is strained to the breaking point by the consequences of wanting more for the next generation.

Drug users are typically portrayed as worthless slackers, burdens on society, and just plain useless―culturally, morally, and economically. By contrast, this book argues that the social construction of some people as useless is in fact extremely useful to other people.

Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen has shown us time and again with her bestselling books that the truth is often stranger than fiction. With "Area 51", "Operation Paperclip", and her most recent, "The Pentagon’s Brain", a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in history, Jacobsen has become the authority on exposing the top-secret affairs of the government. Now, she returns by delving into one of the most fascinating mysteries of all—the military’s decades-long investigation into anomalous mental phenomena.

An intimate memoir from legendary musician Prince’s first wife, Mayte Garcia. Garcia says, “For many years, people have encouraged me to share my story. Prince was loved the world over but few knew him intimately. And ours was a rare, almost otherworldly connection. I want to share our love story, and with it the highs and lows—always coming from a loving place, as this man is still part of my family and always will be.”
