The final installment in Tom Rob Smith's Child 44 trilogy comes out this Thursday, January 5!
The first book, Child 44, introduced readers to Leo Demidov, Soviet war hero and rising star within Stalin's State Security force, who must stop a serial killer the State refuses to admit exists. Smith's debut made the longlist for the Man Booker, and it certainly caught our attention -- read our interview with Smith about Child 44.
Next up was The Secret Speech, which finds Demidov once again fighting a dark past. Khrushchev has come to power and promises major change in post-Stalin Soviet Russia, and a mass release of prisoners unearths feelings of revenge toward Demidov.

Our interview with Geraldine Brooks about Caleb's Crossing is BookPage's May cover story. The novel is about a Wampanoag boy who graduated from Harvard in 1665—and the Puritan woman he befriends, and who longs for an education.
In the interview, Brooks explains some of the history behind her fiction, like how some women in the 17th century were literate and longed for a better lot in life.
For some fantastic visuals to go along with the interview, watch this trailer from Viking, which takes us from Martha's Vineyard to Harvard, the settings of the novel:
