There is never a wrong time to pick up a book


Chaos: A Scarpetta Novel (Kay Scarpetta) by Patricia Cornwell


“There is a quiet intensity to Ms. Cornwell’s writing that compels you to read, then the eeriness sets in. . . . With CHAOS, once again Patricia Cornwell mesmerizes with her astounding scientific knowledge, her keen ear for dialogue and the human psyche, all woven together flawlessly.”





Smooth Operator (Teddy Fay) by Stuart Woods and Parnell Hall



“Fast-moving, full of action, sexy and now with a very bright, devious new hero in Teddy Fay … It is like eating forbidden fruit, sugary cotton candy or forbidden chocolate brownies with nuts. You know it isn’t good for you, but you can’t put it down! Just go ahead and read it.”




The House of Secrets by Brad Meltzer and Tod Goldberg



"Nobody does historical speculation better than Meltzer, to the point where the lines between fiction and fact become utterly blurred. And that helps make THE HOUSE OF SECRETS great fun, pure reading entertainment of the highest order."






The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena


“The many never-saw-them-coming twists and questionable characters. . . will keep you on the edge of your seat. First-time novelist Lapena’s writing is spare and tense, and it makes The Couple Next Door a compulsive read. The last line is absolutely killer.”



The Blood of Emmett Till by Timothy B. Tyson



“A shocking revelation…. For Tyson, this confession reveals the workings of a racial caste system that insured the murderers would be acquitted, and which, even decades later, makes it possible for young black men to be killed with impunity.” 





Forward: A Memoir by Abby Wambach



“Lucid and wrenching...Forward puts [Wambach’s] achievement in context with painful and beautiful candor.”
