More bestsellers are waiting for you @ your library!




The Girl Before: A Novel by JP Delaney


“Delaney has created a genuinely eerie, fascinating setting in One Folgate Street. . . . The novel’s structure, volleying back and forth as first Emma and then Jane begin to question their improbable luck, is beautifully handled. The pages fly.”







Fatal: A Novel by John Lescroart

"Lescroart has always found a fine balance between his two favorite genres: police procedural and legal drama. Fatal succeeds with a new pairing: It is a psychological thriller in bed with a homicide investigation...The characters of Fatal may be lawyers, but their inner lives matter here, not their courtroom dramas...Lescroart wants to pick a side in this battle, but he’s too good a writer to moralize. The result is a dark, disturbing, satisfying read."




Foreign Agent: A Thriller (The Scot Harvath Series) by Brad Thor

"Thor’s most complex and ambitious entry in the series yet, ushering him onto the hallowed ground of literary thriller master John le Carré... A classical hybrid that combines the traditions of both Alistair MacLean and Frederick Forsyth."




The Red Bandanna: A life, A Choice, A Legacy by Tom Rinaldi

“Amid the myriad stories of Sept. 11, there are many moments of heroism.  This…book tells one of the most memorable….Rinaldi’s reconstruction of that final morning is gripping.  His recounting of how Crowther’s family slowly learned of his valor…and of how many now honor him, is deeply moving….The payoff comes when President Obama tells Crowther’s mother after the death of Osama bin Laden, “I know about your son.”  For her, he autographs a red bandanna and adds the message, ‘We won’t forget Welles.’”


Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough



“Pinborough shrewdly transforms a romantic suspense novel into an eerie thriller calculated to creep you out…Pinborough keeps us guessing about just who’s manipulating whom – until the ending reveals that we’ve been wholly complicit in this terrifying mind game.”


  


Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations by Thomas L. Friedman


"The three-time Pulitzer winner puts his familiar methodology―extensive travel, thorough reporting, interviews with the high-placed movers and shakers, conversations with the lowly moved and shaken―to especially good use here . . . He prescribes nothing less than a redesign of our workplaces, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and communities . . . Required reading for a generation that's 'going to be asked to dance in a hurricane.'"
