When her husband dumps her for an old girlfriend and sets all of Peachland, South Carolina, gossiping, Janey Daniels has to get away—far away—for a "sabbatical" year. She flees to Burlington, Vermont, home of Aunt May, her mother's only living relative. There she adopts Beulah, a Labrador puppy in training to become a companion dog for the blind. Not for a moment does Janey suspect that this "year of the dog" will change her life forever. Shelby Hearon is an acknowledged master at illuminating the nuances of relationships. In Year of the Dog, she explores the surprising ways that the heart heals after a betrayal. While Janey is training Beulah, Beulah leads Janey to a new love, James Maarten, a smart, "fidgety" teacher they meet at the dog park. As Janey soon discovers, James has suffered a betrayal of his own that makes it hard for him to open up and trust her with even the smallest details of his past. While Janey tries to help James, she also reaches out to her enigmatic Aunt May, a retired librarian reputed to be the friend, perhaps even the lover, of popular mystery writer Bert Greenwood. When Janey attempts to solve the twin mysteries of why her great aunt has distanced herself from the family—and what her true relationship is with Bert Greenwood—Beulah provides the clues that lead Janey to uncover the secrets of her aunt's life. By the time Beulah's stay with Janey comes to an end, the people whose lives she's linked will discover that healing and reconciliation can come in the most unexpected ways.

Det. Jack Yu returns in this crime novel of fraud, murder, and “another tantalizing glimpse of precinct and street life in Manhattan’s Chinatown” (Publishers Weekly). Reassigned to the Ninth District after being wounded in the line of duty, NYPD Det. Jack Yu settles in for a welcome change of pace, away from the memories of his childhood on his last beat. But the past has a way of sneaking up on him. When a bloody shootout erupts in Chinatown, his old precinct asks Jack for help. Back in his old stomping grounds, he finds himself immersed in all the crimes he thought he’d left behind: murders, gambling, credit card fraud, and tong wars. Navigating the bookies, fraudsters, and gangsters who make up the new face of his old world, Jack is back on the case in the second thrilling installment of a series that offers “a vivid, street-level portrait” of New York’s Chinatown (The New York Times). “An Asian-flavored The Wire . . . A richly atmospheric panorama of New York’s immigrant demimonde.” —Entertainment Weekly “Year of the Dog arrived . . . And suddenly my life became an orgy of reading pleasure.” —Slate “This is a dense, moody, and intelligent glimpse at Chinese life in New York as seen through the world-weary eyes of a young man with a foot firmly planted in two cultures.” —Booklist “Chinatown is the hero here. Better say antihero, because while the picture is vivid and often compelling, it’s anything but pretty.” —Kirkus Reviews “Chang deftly keeps the action moving as he brings the Chinatown neighborhood alive in all its guises.” —Publishers Weekly

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2018 was the year of the ‘earthly dog’. In the middle of the long, hot, and feverish dog days of the summer of 2018, some workers at Shenzhen Jasic Technology took their chances and attempted to form an independent union. While this action was met by the harshest repression, it also led to extraordinary demonstrations of solidarity from small groups of radical students from all over the country, which in turn were immediately and severely suppressed. China’s year of the dog was also imbued with the spirit of another canine, Cerberus—the three-headed hound of Hades—with the ravenous advance of the surveillance state and the increasing securitisation of Chinese society, starting from the northwestern region of Xinjiang. This Yearbook traces these latest developments in Chinese society through a collection of 50 original essays on labour, civil society, and human rights in China and beyond, penned by leading scholars and practitioners from around the world.
