Lies at the Altar: the truth about great marriages, by Dr. Robin Smith, looks at the way people approach their marriage vows. Regardless of what stage of the relationship you are in – engaged, unhappily married, or divorced – Smith will help you think about what your underlying expectations are for marriage, and how to express your expectations to your partner. Most importantly, she will help you understand the value of listening to your partner’s expectations.

You’ve read the book, you’ve seen the movie, now listen to the author himself recount the sometimes funny, sometimes tragic story of his adolescence. Augusten Burroughs reads his memoir Running With Scissors, treating his childhood abuse with a wry tone. He’s kind of a noir version of David Sedaris.

The bestselling team of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child are back with their newest story, The Book of the Dead. This is the concluding volume of a trilogy in which FBI agent Aloysius Pendergast works against the criminal plots of his own brother Diogenes. This volume in the trilogy will tie up the loose ends from the previous two stories, Dance of Death and Brimstone.

Stephen Coonts has written another fast-paced spy novel, titled The Traitor. CIA operatives Tommy Carmellini and Jake Grafton are trying to ferret out a French spy that has supposedly infiltrated Al-Queda. Does he really exist, and is he really a mole?
