Writing with tightly controlled intensity, Alison Pick takes us inside the minds of her vastly different characters--two young unmarried women, one plain and one beautiful, escaping peril in Russia and Europe; one older man, a charismatic group leader who is married with two children; and his wife, Hannah, who understands all too well the dark side of "equality"--to show us how idealism quickly tumbles into pragmatism, and how the utopian dream is punctured by messy human entanglements. (384 pgs.)

 It's spring in Algonquin Bay and the blackflies aren't the only ones out for blood. Detectives John Cardinal and Lise Delorme have a strange case on their hands: a young woman who has wandered out of the bush with a gunshot wound to the head and complete memory loss. Cardinal becomes obsessed with discovering her identity and who is trying to kill her. When the body of a local biker is found in a cave, it seems the two cases are related — and the link appears to be a self-proclaimed shaman who calls himself Red Bear. (448 pgs.)

 In the summer of 1940, ambitious young American journalist Ruby Sutton gets her big break: the chance to report on the European war as a staff writer for Picture Weekly news magazine in London. She jumps at the chance, for it's an opportunity not only to prove herself, but also to start fresh in a city and country that know nothing of her humble origins. But life in besieged Britain tests Ruby in ways she never imagined. (400 pgs.)
