NEW HEATHER'S PICKS AND INDIGO SPOTLIGHT

Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover, Heather Reisman, is announcing two new Heather's Picks: Very Good Lives by J.K. Rowling and Red Notice by Bill Browder.

Red Notice is a real-life political thriller about an American financier in the Wild East of Russia, the murder of his principled young tax attorney, and his dangerous mission to expose the Kremlin's corruption.

Bill Browder's journey started on the South Side of Chicago and moved through Stanford Business School to the dog-eat-dog world of hedge fund investing in the 1990s. It continued in Moscow, where Browder made his fortune heading the largest investment fund in Russia after the Soviet Union's collapse. But when he exposed the corrupt oligarchs who were robbing the companies in which he was investing, Vladimir Putin turned on him and, in 2005, had him expelled from Russia. 

From there, Browder embarked on an unrelenting quest for justice. A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world.

J.K. Rowling, one of the world's most inspiring writers, shares her wisdom and advice in Very Good Lives.

Very Good Lives presents J.K. Rowling's words of wisdom for anyone at a turning point in life. How can we embrace failure? And how can we use our imagination to better both ourselves and others? Drawing from stories of her own post-graduate years, the world famous author addresses some of life's most important questions with acuity and emotional force.

The Indigo Spotlight program introduces readers to a new standout title every month selected and curated by our expert book buyers. We're pleased to announce that May's Spotlight title is Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum.

Provocative, intelligent and thoroughly engrossing, Hausfrau is impossible to put down – and then impossible not to talk about. Hausfrau is as shocking as it is smart, as gripping as it is graphic. Affairs, morality, motherhood, marriage – our experts' latest pick goes there. Now you need to.
