Spend Spring Break with a new besteller

The Empty Throne (Saxon Tales #8) by Bernard Cornwell

Despite Cornwell's use of ancient names and places, the lusty, rollicking narrative (accompanied by a map) is totally accessible and great good fun. Cornwell's done it again. New readers: Draw a flagon of ale, and be prepared to find the first seven in the series.

Trust No One by Jayne Ann Krentz

When Grace Elland finds her murdered boss's body, she comes to the attention of the police, a sexy new neighbor and an apparent stalker who seems linked to both this crime and a violent event from Grace's past. … Krentz never disappoints, but this title shines with authentic characters, an unusual setting in the motivational business world, and a creative arc that ratchets up sexual and psychological tensions. An intriguing, textured mystery that perfectly layers humor, suspense and romance.

The Assassination Option (Clandestine Operations Series #2) by W. E. B. Griffin, William E. Butterworth IV

In their second Clandestine Operations spy thriller, Griffin and his son and co-author, Butterworth (Top Secret, 2014, etc.), delve into the down-and-dirty work necessary to turn the OSS into the CIA. … Characters communicate in repartee, bend rules like Bavarian pretzels, and aren't above dropping a bad guy in an unmarked grave, no paperwork required, so that a turned NKVD colonel's family can escape Leningrad. Another Griffin adventure to bring out the Walter Mitty in every red-white-and-blue-blooded American male.

Die Again (Rizzoli and Isles Series #11) by Tess Gerritsen

Tess Gerritsen delivers another outstanding thriller in her continuing series featuring Boston police Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles. … Fans familiar with Rizzoli and Isles through the TNT television show will find the surroundings a bit different, but the characters and intrigue still rock solid. Newcomers to Gerritsen and the franchise will discover a terrific mystery.
