The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Nigel Jones’ Tower: An Epic History of the Tower of London, Castle, Royal palace, prison, torture chamber and place of execution — no building has been more intimately involved in Britain’s story than this mighty, brooding stronghold in the very heart of London, a place which has stood at the epicentre of dramatic, bloody and frequently cruel events for almost a thousand years.

The Pit:

Sue Ownes Wright’s Sirius About Murder, in which a wealthy and powerful patron for Alpine Paws Park is found strangled with a dog groomer’s leash near a pet psychic booth at a Howloween benefit for Tahoe’s tailwaggers, and a woman and her dog find themselves dewlap deep in a murder investigation.
