From the author of Dead Certain comes a twisting novel of friendship, love, and marriage—and all their cunning and deadly betrayals.
Back in 1986, Clint Broden was a novice New York defense attorney building a family with his wife, Anne, and impatient for his career to take off. That’s when his defense of his closest friend, Nick Zamora, made headlines. In spite of his lingering suspicions that his soul mate since childhood had a secret, Clint was dedicated to believing Nick hadn’t murdered his new bride.
Three decades later, Clint is now the celebrated go-to attorney for the rich and famous. Nick is a lauded literary superstar living his dreams in Los Angeles. Though separated by thirty years and three thousand miles, they’re still bound by one thing—the trial that tested the limits of their friendship.
After all these years, the last thing Clint expects is to be pulled back into Nick’s disruptive life. But this time, his motives for getting involved might be different from proving his old friend’s innocence. It could be Clint’s last chance to force a reckoning with the sins of the past.

A spiritualist, an insane asylum, a lost little girl . . .
When Clive, anxious to distract a depressed Henrietta, begs Sergeant Frank Davis for a case, he is assigned to investigating a seemingly boring affair: a spiritualist woman operating in an abandoned schoolhouse on the edge of town who is suspected of robbing people of their valuables. What begins as an open and shut case becomes more complicated, however, when Henrietta―much to Clive’s dismay―begins to believe the spiritualist's strange ramblings.
Meanwhile, Elsie implores Clive and Henrietta to help her and the object of her budding love, Gunther, locate the whereabouts of one Liesel Klinkhammer, the German woman Gunther has traveled to America to find and the mother of the little girl, Anna, whom he has brought along with him. The search leads them to Dunning Asylum, where they discover some terrible truths about Liesel. When the child, Anna, is herself mistakenly admitted to the asylum after an epileptic fit, Clive and Henrietta return to Dunning to retrieve her. This time, however, Henrietta begins to suspect that something darker may be happening. When Clive doesn’t believe her, she decides to take matters into her own hands . . . with horrifying results.

Once upon a time, Melanie Layton and Tennyson O’Rourke were inseparable—but their friends-4ever promises were shattered when an explosive secret was revealed at Mel’s wedding, a secret that destroyed her family.

Amid the flurry of cake tastings, dress fittings, seating charts, and bridal showers, Mel and Teeny confront their past mistakes—with twenty years of pent-up drama.

Win a signed hardcover copy of THE CITY WHERE WE ONCE LIVED, a novel that STATION ELEVEN's Emily St. John Mandel said is "A rare and truly original work: a hard-edged fable, tender and unflinching, in which a man's descent and renewal is mirrored by his city. An eerie, beautifully written, and profoundly humane book.”
SHELF AWARENESS, starred reviewed - “Prescient . . . haunting . . . a cautionary tale about a world that feels a hair's-breadth away.”
CHRIS OFFUT, author of COUNTRY DARK - “Written in a gorgeously spare language that perfectly reflects the dystopic future this novel depicts, The City Where We Once Lived kept me enthralled throughout. At the core is a deep and admirable compassion for humanity.”

“In bare-bones prose that is subtly affecting, the novel is a haunting portrait of why people form bonds and the many ways those bonds can be torn apart." (5 out 5 stars) - Foreward Magazine

Jarvis Jay Masters’ early life was a horror story whose outlines we know too well, alas. Born in a hard part of Long Beach, CA, his home was filled with crack, alcohol, physical abuse, and the men who paid his mother for sex. He and his siblings were split up and sent into foster care when he was six, from whence he progressed quickly to juvenile detention, car theft, armed robbery, and ultimately San Quentin. While in prison, he was set up for the murder of a prison guard, a crime which landed him on death row, where he’s been since 1986.
At the time of his murder trial, he was also in solitary confinement, a 5’-by-11’ cell he would occupy for 22 years. He was by turns sullen and violent, an understandable combination given his circumstances, but also one that produced unbearable headaches, seizures, and panic attacks. A counselor repeatedly offered to teach him breathing exercises, but he insulted the offers again and again until desperation forced him to ask her how to do “that meditation shit.”
That’s where Masters’ life and this book take off. With uncanny clarity, Sheff describes the nuts and bolts of enlightenment. We discover each nut, each bolt as Masters does: how easy and how hard it is to just sit and breathe; how one minute of sitting can become five, then ten, then twenty; how those minutes spawn heightened perception and deepened compassion, the right way to remember one’s pain, and much more.
