Sold on a Monday 

Set against the backdrop of the Great Depression, Sold on a Monday tells of an era of impossible choices. It follows struggling newspaper reporter, Ellis Reed. When he spots two children holding a for sale sign, he snaps a picture. It wasn’t meant for publication. But when the image leads to his big break, a bigger story unfolds that he could never have imagined. Sold on a Monday was inspired by an actual newspaper photo that shocked readers across the United States. 

A Gentleman in Moscow

Brimming with humor and a glittering cast of characters, it’s no wonder that A Gentleman in Moscow gains recognition from both the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Set in 1922, it tells the story of Count Alexander Rostov, who was sentenced to house arrest in the attic of a grand hotel. While confined, some of the most tumultuous events in Russia’s history unfold outside of the hotel’s doors. A Gentleman in Moscow has sold over 1.5 million copies and will soon be a television miniseries.

After moving to the country from London, a body is found in the woods outside of her home. Lady Hardcastle believes the police are on the wrong scent.
