National Bestseller Ian McEwan’s symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose. On a hot summer day in 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’ s incomplete grasp of adult motives–together with her precocious literary gifts–brings about a crime that will change all their lives. As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century, Atonement engages the reader on every conceivable level, with an ease and authority that mark it as a genuine masterpiece.

"Twenty years after leaving the tiny village of Saint Aldor, Louis Bapaume has come home to make amends. During that one blustery winter solstice day, between the railway station and the church where a funeral mass is underway, he meets old villagers, forgotten neighbours, and characters who are either imagined or real. But there's only one person he seeks: the von Croft twin he taught to read music and to whom he wants to atone."

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LIBRARY JOURNAL • Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. The bestselling author of such novels as A Conspiracy of Paper and The Whiskey Rebels continues his masterly run of “atmospheric” (The Washington Post), “page-turning” (The Baltimore Sun), “tremendously smart” (Newsweek) historical thrillers. In The Day of Atonement, David Liss blends meticulous period detail with crackling adventure in the tale of one man’s quest for justice—and retribution. Sebastião Raposa is only thirteen when his parents are unjustly imprisoned, never to be seen again, and he is forced to flee Portugal lest he too fall victim to the Inquisition. But ten years in exile only serve to whet his appetite for vengeance. Returning at last to Lisbon, in the guise of English businessman Sebastian Foxx, he is no longer a frightened boy but a dangerous man tormented by violent impulses. Haunted by the specter of all he has lost—including his exquisite first love—Foxx is determined to right old wrongs by punishing an unforgivable enemy with unrelenting fury. Well schooled by his benefactor, the notorious bounty hunter Benjamin Weaver, in the use of wits, fists, and a variety of weapons, Foxx stalks the ruthless Inquisitor priest Pedro Azinheiro. But in a city ruled by terror and treachery, where money and information can buy power and trump any law, no enemy should be underestimated and no ally can be trusted. Having risked everything, and once again under the watchful eye of the Inquisition, Foxx finds his plans unraveling as he becomes drawn into the struggles of old friends—and new enemies—none of whom, like Lisbon itself, are what they seem. Compelled to play a game of deception and greed, Sebastian Foxx will find himself befriended, betrayed, tempted by desire, and tormented by personal turmoil. And when a twist of fate turns his carefully laid plans to chaos, he will be forced to choose between surrendering to bloodlust or serving the cause of mercy. Praise for The Day of Atonement “Enthralling . . . [a] sly, rich and swift novel of vengeance and rough justice.”—The Seattle Times “One of the masters of the historical thriller, Liss is back with yet another highly entertaining novel. . . . [The Day of Atonement] paints a vivid picture of the waning days of the Inquisition, and of the truly evil religious leaders who led it. One of Liss’s best books.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune “Foxx is reminiscent of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher: a man with his own moral code who takes on multiple adversaries simultaneously. . . . Liss has the start of another solidly researched, action-packed historical series here.”—Booklist (starred review) “[An] action-packed novel.”—The Wall Street Journal “Snappy dialogue and convincing atmosphere . . . The plot moves swiftly to a shattering climax.”—The Washington Post “Another intriguing thriller set against historical events for Liss, who has a knack for period detail, breakneck plots and characters we want to root for.”—San Antonio Express-News “Fans of Liss know well his mix of dark arts and historical detail.”—New York Daily News From the Trade Paperback edition.

Jerusalem’s holiest site is the epicenter of an ancient conspiracy to destroy the world in an electrifying thriller for Dan Brown and James Rollins fans. The Pope is dead, the apparent victim in a murder-suicide carried out by his most loyal secretary in Vatican City. But the strange disappearance of a sacred relic suggests that the truth is even darker than it first appears. And it’s a link in a terrifying chain of events that could devastate the world’s three major religions—Christianity, Judaism, and Islam—and hasten the end of all things. In Israel, a potentially devastating explosion at the Dome of the Rock is narrowly averted, as Mossad agents rush in prevent the early morning destruction of the sacred site where Solomon’s temple stood, where Christ was crucified, and where Muslims the world over come to worship at their holiest mosque. In the raid’s aftermath, an Israeli intelligence agent forms an unlikely partnership with an Interpol art expert. But their hunt for answers leads them into the dark heart of an ancient conspiracy, as the world’s oldest, most secret society prepares to unleash a power more destructive than anything ever imagined. The Day of Atonement is an ingenious international thriller from the author of The Tarleton Murders. Packed with unrelenting suspense, it is a breathtaking adventure that fans of Inferno, The Da Vinci Code, and the bestselling fiction of Daniel Silva and David Baldacci will eagerly devour.
