Smith Henderson discusses and signs Fourth of July Creek. Benjamin Pearl is an undernourished, nearly feral eleven-year-old boy living in the Montana wilderness. Pete Snow is a social worker that is trying to help Benjamin. However, Pete comes face-to-face with the boy’s disturbed father, Jeremiah. With courage and a lot of caution, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist.  As Pete’s own family spins out of control, Pearl’s activities park the interest of the FBI, putting Pete at the center of an enormous manhunt from which no one will emerge unscathed.

Growing up in the 1960s in one of California’s most prominent political families, Natalie worshipped her big brother, Bobby, a sensitive math prodigy who served as her confidante. But after Bobby left home at sixteen on a Princeton scholarship, something changed between them. Now that Natalie is happily married, with a career and two young daughters, her only real regret is losing Bobby.  When a series of bombings across California rocks Natalie’s perfect life, she becomes obsessed with the case until she makes a very unexpected discovery.  The bomber’s manifesto reads alarmingly like the last letter she received from Bobby.  What follows this discovery is a tale of the limits of loyalty and the sacrifices we make for family.
