Check out our list of Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of Nov. 25, 2019:
1. "Three Days at the Brink: FDR's Daring Gamble to Win World War II," by Bret Baier and Catherine Whitney (William Morrow)
The veteran Fox News anchor zeroes in on the secret meeting of the "Big Three" – Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin – who secretly powwowed in Tehran to map out a strategy for defeating Adolf Hitler. Baier and co-author Whitney dig into rarely seen transcripts, oral histories, declassified State Department documents, and presidential memos, and lay out the importance of Roosevelt as the lead strategist in saving the world from the Nazi menace. It is a rip-roaring read that provides new insights and details about the cataclysmic conflict that shook the world from 1939-1945. (Non-fiction)
2. "Inside Trump's White House: The Real Story of His Presidency," by Doug Wead (Center Street)
Wead, who served as a special assistant to George W. Bush and is credited for coining the phrase "compassionate conservative," offers an insider's view of President Donald Trump's first years in office from election night on. The author is unabashedly in Trump's corner, calling the billionaire businessman perhaps "the most impactful president in modern history," but his detailed descriptions of the day to day workings of the White House – as well as access to Trump, Mick Mulvaney, Jared Kushner and Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump – make "Inside Trump's White House" an intriguing, insightful read for the entire political spectrum. (Non-fiction)
3. "The Night Fire," by Michael Connelly (Little Brown)
If you have not yet been introduced to crack Los Angeles detectives Harry Bosch and Renée Ballard, "The Night Fire" is the perfect place to jump into this can't-put-down police procedural series. Here, the dogged gumshoes discover that unravelling a 20-year-old homicide is no easy task, particularly when the now-deceased cop who originally investigated might not have wanted the case solved – at all. Former newspaper reporter Connelly's writing is like a narcotic – a few paragraphs in and you are hooked! (Fiction)
4. "Edison," by Edmund Morris (Random House)
This is the definitive biography of perhaps the world's greatest inventor, who brought us electricity, movies, sound recordings, X-rays, and dozens of other revolutionary devices. Morris, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the Theodore Roosevelt trilogy, lays out a fascinating portrait of a vastly complex man: an unapologetic autocrat who could work more than 50 hours at a stretch, smoked cheap Corona cigars and maintained a "skinflint, union-busting management style." It is a page turner as Edison jumps from invention to invention and singlehandedly changes the world. (Non-fiction)
5. "Disappearing Earth," by Julia Phillips (Knopf)
If you want take a trip to a faraway world – no, not science fiction – then dive into Phillip's hypnotic new book that unfolds on the Kamchatka peninsula at the northeastern edge of Russia. One summer day, two sisters – 8 and 11 – go missing and stay missing, catapulting a close-knit community into an abyss of fear, loss, and the unknown. The author examines the tragedy through the eyes of the girls' family, neighbors, cops and witnesses, delivering a thoughtful who-done-it in a very unique setting. (Fiction)
