In Gyasi's novel, two half sisters, Effia and Esi, are born into two different tribal villages in 18th century Africa. Effia marries an English colonist and lives in comfort in the Cape Coast Castle. Her sister, Esi, is imprisoned beneath Effia in the women's dungeon, before being shipped off on a boat bound for America, where she will be sold into slavery. The horrors of their experiences echo through generations, as each descendant seeks freedom and healing. (Anchor. May)
An old fashioned Victorian mystery set in the London of 1885. In this city of fog and darkness, the notorious thief Edward Shade exists only as a shadow. William Pinkerton, the son of a detective who died without ever tracing Shade, is determined to drag the thief into the daylight. What follows is a hunt through sewers, opium dens, drawing rooms, and séance halls while an unlikely bond is formed between Pinkerton, the greatest detective of his age, and Adam Foole, the one man who may hold the key to finding Shade. (McClelland & Stewart. May)
