From Our Editors

In a gripping ride that begins with the first page and doesn’t let the reader off until the last, award-winning author Richard Bausch creates a taut thriller in his seventh novel, In the Night Season. When Nora Michaelson’s husband dies, the adjustment is not only painful for Nora and her 11-year-old son, it’s also financially crippling, as the family business is now failing. What Nora doesn’t anticipate, is that Jack’s death could be life-threatening! An O. Henry Prize and Best American Short Story Prize recipient, Bausch is the author of six other best-selling novels.
