Guest List is a gripping, twisty murder mystery thriller from Lucy Foley, the No.1 bestselling author of The Hunting Party.

 

On an island off the windswept Irish coast, guests gather for the wedding of the year – the marriage of Jules Keegan and Will Slater. There are old friends, past grudges, happy families and hidden jealousies. The wedding cake has barely been cut when one of the guests is found dead. And as a storm unleashes its fury on the island, everyone is trapped. All have a secret, and all have a motive. One guest won't leave this wedding alive . . .

A single-volume edition of William J. Bennett's bestselling trilogy series, thoroughly revised and updated to cover America's greatest moments in breath-taking detail.

 

In Bennett's signature gripping prose, Washington, Franklin, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Reagan, and others re-emerge not as marble icons or dust-dry names in a textbook, but as full-blooded, heroic pioneers whose far-reaching vision forged a nation that attracted and still attracts millions yearning to breathe free.

 

William J. Bennett captures the players, personalities, and pivotal moments of American history with piercing insight and unrelenting optimism. In this gripping tale of a nation, the story of what Lincoln referred to as "the last best hope of earth" comes alive in all its drama and personality.

The Mirror And The Light by Hilary Mantel 

 

'If you cannot speak truth at a beheading, when can you speak it?'

 

England, May 1536. Anne Boleyn is dead, decapitated in the space of a heartbeat by a hired French executioner. As her remains are bundled into oblivion, Thomas Cromwell breakfasts with the victors. The blacksmith's son from Putney emerges from the spring's bloodbath to continue his climb to power and wealth, while his formidable master, Henry VIII, settles to short-lived happiness with his third queen, before Jane dies giving birth to the male heir he most craves.


With The Mirror and the Light, Hilary Mantel brings to a triumphant close the trilogy she began with Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. She traces the final years of Thomas Cromwell, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power, offering a defining portrait of predator and prey, of a ferocious contest between present and past, between royal will and a common man's vision: of a modern nation making itself through conflict, passion and courage.
