The People pick of the week is M.J. Rose’s The Memorist, the follow up to last year’s Reincarnationist. People says,

the novel nearly collapses from the strain of its many subplots, but Rose raises the stakes for her ensemble until events come to an excruciatingly tense crescendo…Exhausting, but entertaiing, too

The book is also an Indie Next pick for November,  

[Rose] interweaves a multiplicity of themes involving a quest to resolve issues from the past, the music of Beethoven, a secret society, and the threats of terrorism — bringing all the plot strands together for an incredible denouement.

In addition to books, M.J. Rose writes a blog on book marketing, Buzz, Balls and Hype, is the founder of “AuthorBuzz” (you’ve seen their ads on Shelf Awareness),  and teaches authors how to promote their books.
