A father questions whether his son could be guilty of a terrible crime in this “gripping, beautifully written [and] devastating” thriller (Harlan Coben). Eric Moore has reason to be happy. He has a prosperous business, comfortable home, and stable family life in a quiet town. Then, on an ordinary night, his teenage son, Keith, is asked to babysit Amy Giordano, the eight-year-old daughter of a neighboring family. The next morning Amy is missing. Suddenly Eric is one of the stricken parents he has seen on television, professing faith in his child’s innocence. As the police investigation increasingly focuses on Keith, Eric must counsel his son, find him a lawyer, and protect him from the community’s steadily growing suspicion. Except that Eric is not so sure his son is innocent. And if Keith is not . . . and might do the same thing again . . . what then should a father do? Nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Novel, and winner of a Barry Award for Best Novel, Red Leaves is a “heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching” story of broken trust and one man’s heroic effort to hold fast the ties that bind him to everything he loves (New YorkDaily News). “The totally unexpected resolution is both shocking and perfectly apt.” —Publishers Weekly

Candomblé, an African religious and healing tradition that spread to Brazil during the slave trade, relies heavily on the use of plants in its spiritual and medicinal practices. When its African adherents were forcibly transplanted to the New World, they faced the challenge not only of maintaining their culture and beliefs in the face of European domination but also of finding plants with similar properties to the ones they had used in Africa. This book traces the origin, diffusion, medicinal use, and meaning of Candomblé's healing pharmacopoeia—the sacred leaves. Robert Voeks examines such topics as the biogeography of Africa and Brazil, the transference—and transformation—of Candomblé as its adherents encountered both native South American belief systems and European Christianity, and the African system of medicinal plant classification that allowed Candomblé to survive and even thrive in the New World. This research casts new light on topics ranging from the creation of African American cultures to tropical rain forest healing floras.
