Robyn Crawford

Whitney Houston's longtime friend Robyn Crawford's memoir is already making headlines ahead of its Nov. 12 release.

Ronan Farrow

Journalist Ronan Farrow, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his expose on disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual crimes, investigates the unethical, fearful lengths wealthy, powerful predators go to cover up their tracks in this page-turner.
