Nov 8




The bones of Paris

“Fans of Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris will feel right at home in the Jazz Age Paris setting. . . . Beyond the cameos and the bohemian atmosphere, there is a compelling thriller here and some fascinating fictional characters to go with the real-life ones. As always with King, the plot is tricky but marvelously constructed, delivering twists that not only surprise but also deepen the story and its multiple levels of meaning. Break out that dusty bottle of absinthe you have stored away and settle in for a treat.”Booklist     --amazon--



The Chocolate Book bandit 

“Realistic characters, an engaging plot, and lots of local color distinguish this superior cozy.”—Publishers Weekly
“Keeps you guessing all the way to the end.”—Kirkus Reviews“JoAnna Carl satisfies your sweet tooth along with your craving for a tasty whodunit.”—Cleo Coyle, author of the Coffeehouse Mysteries
“A deft mix of truffles and trouble. Chocaholics—this book is for you!”—Laura Childs, author of the Tea Shop mysteries






Let the old dreams die

,,,“Let the Old Dreams Die” is not the only stunner in this collection. In "Final Processing," Lindqvist also reveals the next chapter in the lives of the characters he created in Handling the Undead. “Equinox” is a story of a woman who takes care of her neighbor’s house while they are away and readers will never forget what she finds in the house. ,,,   --amazon--


Never go back

Never go back—but Jack Reacher does, and the past finally catches up with him. . . . Never Go Back is Lee Child’s new novel of action-charged suspense starring “one of the best thriller characters at work today” (Newsweek).









The October list
"Might well be Deaver's most fiendish thriller ever...as the pace quickens and the story continues to backtrack, solid evidence, established plot points and sturdily built characters all begin to come undone, until what started out as an interactive game becomes a truly unnerving exercise in deception." (New York Times Book Review)





Something borrowed, someone dead

..The plot is fairly predictable: a newcomer to a tiny village with a bad habit of “borrowing” others’ belongings is found poisoned after drinking some pilfered wine. Agatha moves from pub to vicar’s house to manor house, questioning everyone in sight. Although this is set in today’s world, it seems very much like the world of the early twentieth century. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin series is extremely popular  and, often, good fun. This one seems like a too-calculated cozy...    --amazon--



W is for wasted
Wasted lives, wasted time, and wasted opportunities are at the heart of this twenty-third entry in the long-running Kinsey Millhone series, which reveals how the deaths of two very different men impact Kinsey’s life. The first man, Pete Wolinsky, found murdered in a local park, is a shady PI for whom Kinsey has little respect; the second, R. T. Dace, is an alcoholic vagrant who not only turns out to be Kinsey’s relative but also leaves her a half-million bucks. Armed with news of R. T.’s death, Kinsey sets out to learn more about him and why he disinherited his immediate family.

Second watch
Second Watch shows Beaumont taking some time off to get knee replacement surgery, but instead of taking his mind off work, the operation plunges him into one of the most perplexing mysteries he's ever faced.
   His past collides with his present in this complex and thrilling story that explores loss and heartbreak, duty and honor, and, most importantly, the staggering cost of war and the debts we owe those who served in the Vietnam War, and those in uniform today.  --amazon--



Silencing Eve
This is the finale that fans have been waiting for.  In Taking Even, the game began.  In Hunting Eve, the chase was on.  Now, in Silencing Eve, the prey is cornered.  Will Eve Duncan survive?  Will those she loves take the fall with her? And will the secrets of Eve’s past ultimately become her undoing?  In Silencing Eve, all the questions will be answered in a shocking, you never saw it coming conclusion.
