If you love Susan Mallery, you won’t want to miss this novel of three high school friends who find themselves emotionally fractured when tragedy strikes, so they go on a road trip they’ll never forget and rediscover what made them “best friends forever.” It was the road trip of their lives . . . and they did it without a map. When they posed for a photo at their high school graduation, they vowed they’d be friends forever, but teenage promises are so easily broken, and now, thirty years later, they’re practically strangers. Cici—stuck in a rut, married to a cheating husband. Genie—caring for her ailing father but never getting any thanks. Kate—everyone knows people who look perfect on Instagram are not. And Laurie—the most successful of them all—now tragically gone. So, to celebrate Laurie’s life, three former friends in a 1962 red Lincoln Continental convertible take the road trip of their lives—encountering male strippers, a boy band that has seen better days, crazy motel rooms, adopting a so-ugly-it’s-cute stray dog…and discovering that it’s never too late to live the wild life. Because, sometimes, to find yourself you have to get away.

A collection that centers on themes of home, identity, and disconnection. The book is to be read as a journey, with the first story about a departure from home, and the last a return to it. The works within are largely iterations of traditional fairy tales, some contemporized, some not. The characters in these stories are ever at odds with-or in search of-their pasts. In "The Glass Mountain," a princess flees her kingdom only to be trapped in a mountain until she comes to terms with her mother's mysterious disappearance. "The Swan Brother" explores the relationship between a girl and her brother, whose life she changed irreparably through a curse. "Raptures of the Deep" follows a young woman whose past literally comes back to haunt her in the form of her dead best friend, and the title story, "Maps for the Getaway," is about a girl who wakes from a coma without a past. Also woven throughout the collection is a series of flash pieces, Untellings, which delve into singular events of various fairy tales and explore the thoughts and feelings of the characters within those moments.

You probably haven’t ever noticed them. But they’ve noticed you. They notice everything. That’s their job. Sitting quietly in a nondescript car outside a bank making note of the tellers’ work habits, the positions of the security guards. Lagging a few car lengths behind the Brinks truck on its daily rounds. Surreptitiously jiggling the handle of an unmarked service door at the racetrack. They’re thieves. Heisters, to be precise. They’re pros, and Parker is far and away the best of them. If you’re planning a job, you want him in. Tough, smart, hardworking, and relentlessly focused on his trade, he is the heister’s heister, the robber’s robber, the heavy’s heavy. You don’t want to cross him, and you don’t want to get in his way, because he’ll stop at nothing to get what he’s after. Parker, the ruthless antihero of Richard Stark’s eponymous mystery novels, is one of the most unforgettable characters in hardboiled noir. Lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose-style—and adored by fans who turn each intoxicating page with increasing urgency—Stark is a master of crime writing, his books as influential as any in the genre. The University of Chicago Press has embarked on a project to return the early volumes of this series to print for a new generation of readers to discover—and become addicted to. Parker goes under the knife in The Man with the Getaway Face, changing his face to escape the mob and a contract on his life. Along the way he scores his biggest heist yet: an armored car in New Jersey, stuffed with cash. “Westlake knows precisely how to grab a reader, draw him or her into the story, and then slowly tighten his grip until escape is impossible.”—Washington Post Book World “Elmore Leonard wouldn’t write what he does if Stark hadn’t been there before. And Quentin Tarantino wouldn’t write what he does without Leonard. . . . Old master that he is, Stark does all of them one better.”—Los Angeles Times “Donald Westlake’s Parker novels are among the small number of books I read over and over. Forget all that crap you’ve been telling yourself about War and Peace and Proust—these are the books you’ll want on that desert island.”—Lawrence Block

Ridinghood Corporation, facing the unexplained disappearance of their Chief Executive Officer and red-flagged tax returns, has both the police and the IRS investigating. Parish Stenopolis is fearful of what this will do to the company and consequently her position as head accountant, a position she has attained through many years of work. She still has a seventeen-year-old son to finance through college. She has been given the responsibility to assist the IRS forensic auditor, Blayze Pashasia. Blayze has also been enlisted by Lieutenant Davy Sarkis to keep his eyes and ears open relative to the missing executive. As they begin the investigation they determine not only one but three people are missing from Ridinghood. One is a member of the computer team, the other a gossipy employee related to the company owner. Problems escalate when one of the three is found dead, murdered. Blayze uncovers suspicious activity in the company investment account and begins following the money trail, which takes them to the seaside resort at Ocean Shores and eventually moves off-shore. Making an effort not to antagonize the accountant, a costly mistake he made in a previous assignment, Blayze encounters resistance bordering on horror. Accustomed to intimidating people as an agent of the IRS, he is at a loss to explain Parish’s reaction when he realizes it has nothing to do with his employer.
