We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending December 4, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #5 in Mass Market) Merry Christmas, Alex Cross by James Patterson: “The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again-a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family.” (November 2016)
(Debuted at #11 in Young Adult) Courage to Soar by Simone Biles: “Here, in her own words, Simone takes you through the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the 2016 Olympic team. Along the way, Simone shares the details of her inspiring personal story—one filled with the kinds of daily acts of courage that led her, and can lead you, to even the most unlikely of dreams.” (November 2016)
(Debuted at #14 in Hardcover Fiction) Cross the Line by James Patterson: “After shots pierce the tranquil nighttime calm of Rock Creek Park, a man is dead: what looks at first like road rage might be something much more sinister. But Alex has only just begun asking questions when he’s called across town to investigate a new murder, one that hits close to home: Washington’s own chief of detectives. And Alex’s former boss, beloved mentor of Alex’s wife, Bree.” (November 2016)
