The Masked Man has captured all the royal families from the Land of Stories with the help of his army of literature’s greatest villains, including the Wicked Witch of the West, the Queen of Hearts, and Captain Hook. With his sinister plan finally in motion, he is eager to destroy the families and take his place as emperor.
Jeanne Marie Laskas first met the young forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu in 2009, while reporting a story for GQ—a story that would go on to inspire the major motion picture Concussion. Omalu told her about a day in September 2002, where, in a dingy morgue in downtown Pittsburgh, he picked up a scalpel and made a discovery that would rattle America in ways he’d never intended. Omalu was new to America, chasing the dream, a deeply spiritual man escaping the wounds of civil war in Nigeria. The body on the slab in front of him belonged to a fifty-year-old named Mike Webster, aka “Iron Mike,” a Hall of Fame center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, one of the greatest ever to play the game. After retiring in 1990, Webster had suffered a dizzyingly steep decline. Toward the end of his life, he was living out of his van, tasering himself to relieve his chronic pain, and fixing his rotting teeth with Super Glue. How did this happen?, Omalu asked himself. How did a young man like Mike Webster end up like this? The search for answers would change Omalu’s life forever and put him in the crosshairs of one of the most powerful corporations in America: the National Football League. What Omalu discovered in Mike Webster’s brain—proof that Iron Mike’s mental deterioration was no accident but a disease caused by relentless blows to the head that could affect everyone playing the game—was the one truth the NFL would do anything to keep secret.
Taut, gripping, and gorgeously told, Concussion is the stirring true story of one unlikely man’s courageous decision to stand up to a multibillion-dollar colossus bent on silencing him, and to tell the world the truth.

Shot down over Siberia in what was to be a simple meet-and-greet-mission, ex-Justice Department agent Cotton Malone is forced into a fight for survival against Aleksandr Zorin, whose loyalty to the former Soviet Union has festered for decades into an intense hatred of the United States.
Before escaping, Malone learns that Zorin and another ex-KGB officer, this one a sleeper still imbedded in the West, are headed overseas to Washington D.C.

The Thousandth Floor is set in New York City, a hundred years from now, when most of Manhattan has become an enormous thousand-story skyscraper (hence the title!). The book opens on an unnamed girl falling from the roof of the tower. As the reader, you don’t know who she is or why she’s falling: Was it an accident, did she jump off … or was she pushed? The book then backtracks three months, to tell the interlocking stories of five teenagers.
Although The Thousandth Floor is set in the future, it isn’t set in a dystopia: There’s no cruel dictator or caste system, no battles to the death. It’s still our world, and because of that, people are still motivated by the same things — loneliness and desire and heartbreak and love, and all the other countless things that make us human. So even though my characters live a hundred years from now, their struggles aren’t that different than the ones people face every day.
There’s Leda Cole, who uses her sarcasm to hide deep insecurities. Watzahn Bakradi, who finds himself attracted to a girl he never should have met. Eris Dodd-Radson loses the life she knows when a family secret surfaces. Rylin Myers’s life is complicated when she takes a new job, working for a boy she shouldn’t like. And then there’s Avery Fuller, the girl who seems to have it all, but wants the one thing she can never have.
