"The Greenspan Effect: Words That Move the World's Markets" Jeffrey L. Cruikshank Our price: $5.68 | You save: $13.27
...available here.
Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan has incontrovertibly turned his formerly anonymous presidential appointment into the single most dominant financial position on earth. Whenever he prepares to speak, fiscal agents around the world hold their collective breaths--and then react emphatically to his words, often even before he finishes saying them. But exactly what does he say that so affects money management? And precisely why does he say it? David Sicilia and Jeffrey Cruikshank do a formidable job of answering both questions by analyzing the chairman's own statements. The result is an insightful, point-by-point assessment of the man and his enormous influence.

Grab a couple of mysteries by big-name authors at fantastic savings while supplies last.

"Hot Six" Janet Evanovich Our price: $6.99 | You save: $17.96
...available here.
This, the sixth in the author's Stephanie Plum series, will make you a Janet Evanovich fan if you're not one already. For a thriller with a healthy dose of wacky humor, this one's a sure bet.

"The Prometheus Deception" Robert Ludlum Our price: $7.99 | You save: $19.96
...available here.
"The Prometheus Deception" begins with a deep-cover operative, a beautiful cryptographer with a shadowy past, a government organization that's not what it seems, and an assignment that goes very, very wrong. Filled with post-cold-war double-crosses, New Economy high jinks, and even a few Wall Street shenanigans thrown in for good measure, "The Prometheus Deception" is pure old-style Ludlum, repackaged for the new millennium.

"Grievance" K. C. Constantine Our price: $5.99 | You save: $17.96">...available here.
Known by some as among the best mystery writers in America, this author has escaped the notice of lots of readers, which is sad, because Constantine's characterizations are dead-on. If you're a fan of hard-core police procedurals, pick this one up.

"Personal Injuries" Scott Turow Our price: $7.99 | You save: $19.01
...available here.
Scott Turow has always pushed himself beyond the expectations of readers and critics. In "Personal Injuries," Turow continues to innovate on legal fiction, but his achievement this time is not gained through clever plot twists (though there are several) or intense legal action (though there is much of that too). The achievement of mastery this time is via exquisitely drawn, Faulknerian characters--attorney Robbie Feaver, agent Evon Miller, U.S. Attorney Stan Sennett, and Justice Brendan Tuohey--whose lives become the driving mystery at the core of the book.

This week's eclectic selection includes a modern Western saga, historical fiction, a gripping tale of the particular nature of evil, and a collection of short stories, among others.

"Fencing the Sky" James Galvin Our price: $5.99 | You save: $17.01
...available here.
James Galvin opens his first novel with a shocking, seemingly inexplicable murder--horseman Mike Arans closes in on a pistol-packing motorist named Merriwether Snipes, throws a rope, and snaps his neck--and then proceeds to illuminate why it happened, what it means, and how Mike deals with the consequences. "Fencing the Sky" is a gripping, well-told story of the changing landscape of the West in the tradition of Cormack McCarthy and Larry McMurtry.

"Custer's Luck" Robert Skimin Our price: $4.99 | You save: $20.01
...available here.
The most compelling account of the Little Bighorn ever written, this powerfully detailed historical novel vividly re-creates the lives of two of the most celebrated leaders of 19th-century America, General George Armstrong Custer and Chief Sitting Bull. The Battle of the Little Bighorn itself, described in all of its frightening detail, is the riveting climax to the artfully portrayed collision of two civilizations: one reaching for its manifest destiny, one struggling for survival.

"A Prayer for the Dying" Stewart O'Nan Our price: $5.99 | You save: $16.01
...available here.
When his town's sleepy summer tranquility is shattered by an outbreak of diphtheria, Jacob Hansen--constable, deacon, and undertaker--faces an impossible dilemma: save both himself and his family or observe his many duties? The inexorable and crushing horror of Stewart O'Nan's fifth novel is that evil doesn't flinch, and its insistence can obliterate goodness and corrupt humility. Deep, disturbing, and riveting, this book will stay with you long after you've put it down.

"Abe" Richard Slotkin Our price: $6.99 | You save: $20.51
...available here.
In the early 1980s, politicians got a lot of mileage out of reading--or noisily claiming to have read--Gore Vidal's biographical novel "Lincoln." Now pols wanting to lay claim to the 16th president's mythical integrity have another book to add to the shelf. In "Abe: A Novel of the Young Lincoln," Richard Slotkin sets out to discover the very roots of Lincoln's politics.

"Wonderful Town : New York Stories from the New Yorker" David Remnick Our price: $9.98
...available here.
John Cheever ("The Five-Forty-Eight"), James Thurber ("The Catbird Seat"), Maeve Brennan ("I See You, Bianca"), Isaac Bashevis Singer ("The Cafeteria"), Jamaica Kincaid ("Poor Visitor"), and many other New York writers are represented in this superb collection of short fiction about the city from "The New Yorker."
