The Summer House by James Patterson

Enter for a chance to win one of 20 advanced reader copies of The Summer House by James Patterson.

Seven murder victims.
Four accused Army Rangers.
Two versions of the truth.
Only one can survive.

Sullivan County, Georgia, belongs to Sheriff Emma Williams. But when Rangers posted to the local base are implicated in a major crime, the Army challenges her jurisdiction.

An elite team of investigators, led by Major Jeremiah Cook, are called to The Summer House, a grand old place on a lake that’s now locked down for a forensic investigation. The small-town sheriff has never worked a multiple homicide, and Cook knows it. To Cook, the physical evidence Williams swears by presents clues to an entirely different story. One that will be impossible for his commanding officers — or anyone — to believe.

Unless he can convince the locals that the recent crimes are part of a larger mystery, this outsider may never unlock the century of secrets hidden inside The Summer House.

A Drop of Midnight by Jason Diakité

World-renowned hip-hop artist Jason “Timbuktu” Diakité’s vivid and intimate journey through his own and his family’s history—from South Carolina slavery to twenty-first-century Sweden.

Born to interracial American parents in Sweden, Jason Diakité grew up between worlds—part Swedish, American, black, white, Cherokee, Slovak, and German, riding a delicate cultural and racial divide. It was a no-man’s-land that left him in constant search of self. Even after his hip-hop career took off, Jason fought to unify a complex system of family roots that branched across continents, ethnicities, classes, colors, and eras to find a sense of belonging.

In A Drop of Midnight, Jason draws on conversations with his parents, personal experiences, long-lost letters, and pilgrimages to South Carolina and New York to paint a vivid picture of race, discrimination, family, and ambition. His ancestors’ origins as slaves in the antebellum South, his parents’ struggles as an interracial couple, and his own world-expanding connection to hip-hop helped him fashion a strong black identity in Sweden.

What unfolds in Jason’s remarkable voyage of discovery is a complex and unflinching look at not only his own history but also that of generations affected by the trauma of the African diaspora, then and now.

The Lady's Handbook for Her Mysterious Illness by Sarah Ramey

*GALLEY GIVEAWAY*

“A visceral, scathing, erudite read that digs deep into how modern medicine continues to fail women and what can be done about it.”
—Booklist, Starred Review

In her harrowing, defiant, and unforgettable memoir, Sarah Ramey recounts the decade-long saga of how a seemingly minor illness in her senior year of college turned into a prolonged and elusive condition that destroyed her health but that doctors couldn't diagnose or treat. Worse, as they failed to cure her, they hinted that her devastating symptoms were psychological.
The Lady's Handbook for Her Mysterious Illness is a memoir with a mission: to help the millions of (mostly) women who suffer from unnamed or misunderstood conditions--autoimmune illnesses, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic Lyme disease, chronic pain, and many more. Ramey's pursuit of a diagnosis and cure for her own mysterious illness becomes a page-turning medical mystery that reveals a new understanding of today's chronic illnesses. Her book will open eyes, change lives, and, ultimately, change medicine.
