With the same deadpan mania and genius for dislocation that he brought to his internationally acclaimed novels A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Haruki Murakami makes this collection of stories a determined assault on the normal. A man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald's in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard.
Jack Reacher is a curious man. However, his curiosity may just get him killed this time. In Make Me: A Jack Reacher Novel, Lee Childs spells out the winning combination of adventure and suspense. When Jack Reacher gets off the train in a middle-of-nowhere town, he is met with more than he has bargained for. This town is shaded in mystery.
