More new bestsellers from some of the library staff's favorite authors.

The Sixth Extinction (Sigma Force) by James Rollins

Mash up Lovecraft and Ludlum, stir in exotic geography and lashings of mad science, and you’ve got the latest from the Rollins (Bloodline, 2012, etc.) pop-thriller factory. … Cutting-edge science and mad dashes to D.C., Antarctica and highland Brazil notwithstanding, this is a good old-fashioned dust-up, the cliffhanging question being always whether the good guys of the public sector will prevail over the bad guys of the private.

- Kirkus Reviews

Power Play by Catherine Coulter

Coulter (The Final Cut, 2013, etc.) introduces new characters to her FBI series, reinforces old ones and provides plenty for them all to do. But the result, however action-packed, is less thrilling than her best.

The Book of Life: A Novel (All Souls Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness

The witch Diana’s and the vampire Matthew’s quests to discover their origins and confront the threats to their star-crossed union tie up as neatly as one of Diana’s magical weaver’s knots. In the resolution of the All Souls trilogy … There are few surprises, but it’s still satisfying to travel with these characters toward their more-than-well-earned happy ending

Shots Fired: Stories from Joe Pickett Country by C. J. Box

Ten stories—three never before published—from the best-selling creator of Wyoming Game and Fish Warden Joe Pickett (Stone Cold, 2014, etc.) … Box generally avoids whodunits and surprises; the title story’s subtitle gives away its principal revelation. But if you’re looking for rising tension played out against spectacular natural scenery, nobody does it better. 

Love Letters: A Rose Harbor Novel by Debbie Macomber

The sounds of bickering permeate the walls of a bed-and-breakfast in the latest installment of the best-selling author’s Rose Harbor series. … Hurt feelings are mended in believable and unexpectedly uplifting ways, and a cliffhanger ending for Jo Marie begs for a swift resolution in the next book.
