Features bestselling and popular nonfiction titles that are highly engaging and have a broad appeal to many readers. Titles cover a wide spectrum of nonfiction sub-genres — including: armchair travel, popular science, pets and animals, popular culture, humor, history, current events, and biographies and memoirs, and other standouts in narrative nonfiction.



Fentanyl, Inc. is the first deep-dive investigation of a hazardous and illicit industry that has created a worldwide epidemic, ravaging communities and overwhelming and confounding government agencies that are challenged to combat it. Westhoff visits the shady factories in China from which these drugs emanate, and reports on how China’s vast chemical industry operates. He chronicles the lives of addicted users and dealers, families of victims, and drug awareness organizers. Together they represent the shocking and riveting full anatomy of a calamity we are just beginning to understand.
