NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “A complex, gripping and deadly serious novel that reflects anew Slaughter's abundant talent.”—The Washington Post “An amazing effort .



This is [Karin] Slaughter’s best book to date, and readers unfamiliar with her work will find this one a perfect place to begin.”—Associated Press There’s no police training stronger than a cop’s instinct.

Faith Mitchell’s mother isn’t answering her phone.

Her front door is open.

There’s a bloodstain above the knob.

Everything Faith learned in the academy goes out the window when she charges into her mother’s house, gun drawn.

She sees a man dead in the laundry room, a hostage situation in the bedroom.

What she doesn’t see is her mother.

When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions.

She’ll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and trauma doctor Sara Linton to get some answers.

But Faith isn’t just a cop anymore, she’s a witness—and a suspect.

To find her mother, Faith will have to cross the thin blue line and bring the truth to light—or bury it forever.

“An absolute master .



Slaughter creates some wonderfully complex and mature female characters, a distinctive achievement in the world of thrillers.”—Chicago Tribune “Slaughter has always known how to pace the suspense in her stellar crime novels, but she really outdoes herself here.




[She] reveals the heart and soul of her characters within a highly choreographed, unrelentingly suspenseful plot.”—Booklist (starred review)

"Love and loss, revenge and redemption, this debut novel will stick with you for a long time." —Emily Giffin "I love The Next...elegantly written, thoughtfully sharp, surprisingly touching." —Cathleen Schine Is there a right way to die? If so, Joanna DeAngelis has it all wrong.

She’s consumed by betrayal, spending her numbered days obsessing over Ned McGowan, her much younger ex, and watching him thrive in the spotlight with someone new, while she wastes away.

She’s every woman scorned, fantasizing about revenge ...

except she’s out of time.

Joanna falls from her life, from the love of her daughters and devoted dog, into an otherworldly landscape, a bleak infinity she can’t escape until she rises up and returns and sets it right—makes Ned pay—so she can truly move on.

From the other side into right this minute, Jo embarks on a sexy, spiritual odyssey.

As she travels beyond memory, beyond desire, she is transformed into a fierce female force of life, determined to know how to die, happily ever after.

Author : Milan Kundera

“Slender but weighty.




What is moving about this novel is its embrace of what has always driven Kundera, the delicate state of living between being and nothingness.”— Boston Globe From the internationally acclaimed, bestselling author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, an entertaining and enchanting novel—"a fitting capstone on an extraordinary career." (Slate) Casting light on the most serious of problems and at the same time saying not one serious sentence; being fascinated by the reality of the contemporary world and at the same time completely avoiding realism—that’s The Festival of Insignificance.

Readers who know Milan Kundera’s earlier books know that the wish to incorporate an element of the “unserious” in a novel is not at all unexpected of him.

In Immortality, Goethe and Hemingway stroll through several chapters together talking and laughing.

And in Slowness, Vera, the author’s wife, says to her husband: “you’ve often told me you meant to write a book one day that would have not a single serious word in it…I warn you: watch out.

Your enemies are lying in wait.” Kundera is finally and fully realizing his old aesthetic dream in this novel that we could easily view as a summation of his whole work.

A strange sort of summation.

Strange sort of epilogue.

Strange sort of laughter, inspired by our time, which is comical because it has lost all sense of humor.

What more can we say? Nothing.

Just read.
