Amazon's Best Books of April: Today's Releases

American_warReviewer Al Woodworth warns that our Featured Debut this month--Omar El Akkad’s American War--will "give you the chills." In it, a second Civil War has erupted in the year 2074. Oil is illegal, unmanned drones dot the sky, and a young girl is drawn into a dangerous political game with catastrophic consequences. Woodworth says this "disquieting novel of immense depth...sounds a warning blast."

Nevertheless by Alec Baldwin
You know him from performances in Beetlejuice, Working Girl, 30 Rock and, most recently, Saturday Night Live, where his controversial portrayal of the 45th president has earned him much praise (and probably a few jeers). Nevertheless is the entertaining and unapologetically frank memoir from actor Alec Baldwin.

Prussian Blue by Philip Kerr
It’s 1956 and antihero Bernie Gunther is called upon to settle an old debt, in deadly fashion. What’s more, the man tasked with ensuring Gunther follows through on this dubious errand is an old colleague; both investigated a murder at Hitler’s mountaintop retreat in 1939. It’s a past connection that will have future consequences.
