Start the new semester off right with these new bestsellers!

Badlands by C. J. Box

Box takes another break from his highly successful Joe Pickett series (Stone Cold, 2014, etc.) for a stand-alone about a police detective, a developmentally delayed boy, and a package everyone in North Dakota wants to grab. … A suspenseful, professional-grade north country procedural whose heroine, a deft mix of compassion and attitude, would be welcome to return and tie up the gaping loose end Box leaves. The unrelenting cold makes this the perfect beach read.

The Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman

“Lilting prose, beautifully meted out folklore and historical references, and Hoffman's deep conviction in her characters (especially those "willing to do anything for love") make reading this "contes du temps passé" a total pleasure.”
     Kirkus Review

Nemesis (FBI Series #19) by Catherine Coulter

“The daring duo of Sherlock and Savich once again takes on assorted criminals in this wide-ranging thriller.”
-        Kirkus Reviews

The Cartel by Don Winslow

“A Game of Thrones of the Mexican drug wars, a multipart, intricately plotted, blood-soaked epic that tells the story of how America’s unquenchable appetite for illegal drugs has brought chaos to our southern neighbors and darkened our own political and criminal culture.”
