The Apartment: A Novel by Danielle Steel

Briggs’ careful and layered building of both her world and her characters is an iron-clad guarantee of an outstanding read! Fans will love this one!




The Gangster (Isaac Bell Series #9) by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott

Cussler and Scott did do a wonderful job at placing the reader in the 1900s, painting a great image with accurate visual descriptions.




Private Paris by James Patterson, Mark Sullivan

…[T]he authors weave a fast-paced adventure covering two investigations. Scary possibilities, but good fiction none the less.



The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur's Vision of the Future by Steve Case
 
The founder of America Online outlines some of the potentialities he sees emerging in the “Internet of Everything.” … [Case] identifies three sectors of economic activity as foci of the coming “Third Wave” of the Internet: health care, education, and food production, processing, and transportation. Each of these represents a partnership between government and the private sector aimed at achieving some public good. … Case’s vision of the future is compelling, but he may be overreaching when he emphasizes functions for third-party apps that could undermine professionally qualified expertise and challenge employment, earnings, and benefits. … Opportunity beckons, and Case ably describes the possibilities, but the price of the chase may harm as well as benefit.
