They met as children, innocents from two different worlds. And from that moment their lives were fated to be forever entwined. Timothy : Abandoned at birth, he finds a home--and a dazzling career--within the Catholic Church. But the vows he takes cannot protect him from one soul-igniting passion. Daniel : The scholarly son of a great rabbi, he is destined to follow in his father's footsteps. And destined to break his father's heart. Deborah : She was raised to be docile and dutiful--the perfect rabbi's wife--but love will lead her to rebellion. And into world's the patriarch would never dare imagine. Reaching across more than a quarter of a century, from the tough streets of Brooklyn to ultramodern Brasilia to an Israeli kibbutz, and radiating the splendor of two holy cities, Rome and Jerusalem, here is Erich Segal's most provocative and ambitious novel to date--the unforgettable story of three extraordinary lives...and one forbidden love.

The novel is three intertwined stories with one central character, the narrator, Christian Verdugo. Christian Verdugo is a twenty-three year old male of Mexican American descent. Story One deals with Christian and his relationship to two friends, Ezer Kadosh and Miel Mishima, both aged 23. They have been friends since high school. This story deals with each of the characters as they develop and seek to gain independence from each others influence. In the course of the story, Ezer will embark on a commercially lucrative career as a painter/artist, and he will come out of the gay closet, declaring his interest in Christian, who is not gay. This, of course, causes problems. Miel is a musician with his own band, and he is also on a path of self-discovery that includes his band, his art, his love of a woman five years his senior, and his experimentation with drugs. Story Two deals with Christians broken heart over a girl named Maribeth who has left the country and fallen in love with someone else. Christian, in an evolving effort to ease his heartache, will have an affair with an art school teacher, a woman 14 years his senior, known both to him and Maribeth. This affair will prove to be an instructive, enlightening adventure for Christian. Story Three deals with Christians job working for a crazy and irresponsible attorney, Gordon Hamilton, who is stealing money from his clients, and living the life of sybaritic excess. Gordons irresponsibility will cause a lot of authority to be delegated to Christian, a precocious young man growing up quickly through circumstance. Gordon will end up stealing from the wrong client, a Mexican Mafia hitman and criminal defendant, which will result in Gordons disappearance and probable but unconfirmed execution. In a bizarre twist, this hit man, Oscar Godoy, will take a paternal and professional interest in Christian, and offer him a job. A job doing what, Christian can only guess. These three stories will run simultaneously and meld at the novels end when Christian escapes to Mexico to reassess the direction of his life.

Set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, a powerful tale of grief, of love's enduring bonds, and the haunting secrets of the past. Set in the Maine territory King has made mythic, Bag of Bones recounts the plight of forty-year-old bestselling novelist Mike Noonan, who is unable to stop grieving following the sudden death of his wife Jo, and who can no longer bear to face the blank screen of his computer. Now his nights are plagued by vivid nightmares, all set at the Maine summerhouse he calls Sara Laughs. Despite these dreams, or perhaps because of them, Mike returns to the lakeside getaway. There he finds his beloved Yankee town held in the grip of a powerful millionaire, Max Devore, who will do anything to take his three-year-old granddaughter away from her widowed young mother. As Mike is drawn into their struggle, as he falls in love with both mother and child, he is also drawn into the mystery of Sara Laughs, now the site of ghostly visitations, ever-escalating nightmares, and the sudden recovery of his writing ability. What are the forces that have been unleashed here—and what do they want of Mike Noonan? First published in 1998, Bag of Bones was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. It was lauded at its publication as “hands down, Stephen King’s most narratively subversive fiction” (Entertainment Weekly) and his “most ambitious novel” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).

From the author of the New York Times-bestselling and Edgar Award-winning The Expats As dawn approaches in New York, literary agent Isabel Reed is turning the final pages of a mysterious, anonymous manuscript, racing through the explosive revelations about powerful people, as well as long-hidden secrets about her own past. In Copenhagen, veteran CIA operative Hayden Gray, determined that this sweeping story be buried, is suddenly staring down the barrel of an unexpected gun. And in Zurich, the author himself is hiding in a shadowy expat life, trying to atone for a lifetime’s worth of lies and betrayals with publication of The Accident, while always looking over his shoulder. Over the course of one long, desperate, increasingly perilous day, these lives collide as the book begins its dangerous march toward publication, toward saving or ruining careers and companies, placing everything at risk—and everyone in mortal peril. The rich cast of characters—in publishing and film, politics and espionage—are all forced to confront the consequences of their ambitions, the schisms between their ideal selves and the people they actually became. The action rockets around Europe and across America, with an intricate web of duplicities stretching back a quarter-century to a dark winding road in upstate New York, where the shocking truth about the accident itself is buried. Gripping, sophisticated, layered, and impossible to put down, The Accident proves once again that Chris Pavone is a true master of suspense.
