The Laws of Invisible Things

Frank Huyler
Henry Holt

Huyler, a practicing emergency physician, creates a gripping medical thriller about a mysterious infectious disease and a young doctor's heroic attempts to trace its cause. Poetic and suspenseful, The Laws of Invisible Things is a promising debut from a talented young writer.

The Rule of Four

Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason
Dial Press

In this tag-team novelistic effort, Caldwell and Thomason put together a story about a quartet of Princeton scholars who analyze an ancient manuscript for embedded secrets about a lost Roman artifact. Think of it as a brainy twist on The Da Vinci Code.

Ideas of Heaven: A Ring of Stories

W.W. Norton

Set in different times and places, each of the six connected stories making up Silber's Ideas of Heaven build on and enhance each of its neighbors. By all accounts, Ideas of Heaven is a brief but ingeniously subtle work of grade A fiction.
