Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz (F KOO Odd.6)

“The pistol appeared in his hand the way a dove appears in the hand of a good magician, as if it materialized out of thin air. ‘You think I won’t do it right here in the open. But you’d be surprised. . .’ Odd Thomas manages to dodge the bullet, but destiny will drive him into a harrowing showdown with absolute evil.”

“In the small town of Colden, Massachusetts, Libby Sawyer leads a quiet life, but she is haunted by a secret. Michael Dobrescu is newly arrived, and his shocking claim to be the rightful owner of Libby’s father’s house immediately alienates him from everyone.”

Something Wicked by Lisa Jackson (F JAC)

“Some refer to it as the Colony—others call it a cult. Curiosity runs deep and even the sisters who live at Siren Song have begun to question whether it’s really the sanctuary their aunt claims.”

Zero Hour by Clive Cussler (F CUS Aus.11)

“It’s called zero-point energy, and it really exists—a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever figured out how to tap into it—until one scientist finds a way. But he does not intend to use his discovery for good.”

The Russians: The Crown and the Crucible by Michael Phillips & Judith Pella (F PHI Rus.1)

“Against the formidable backdrop of pre-revolutionary Russia, the lives of two families become inextricably entwined. A peasant girl, Anna Burenin has her future altered forever when she is thrust into the presence of the spoiled Princess Katrina.”

Angel Sister by Ann H. Gabhart (F GAB)

“It’s 1936, and Kate Merritt works hard to keep her family together. Her father is an alcoholic; her mother is trying to cope with their dire financial situation. Kate could never have imagined that a dirty, abandoned little girl would be just what her family needs.”

The Gila Wars by Larry D. Sweazy (WF SWE Jos.6)

“Texas Ranger Josiah Wolfe and his friend Scrap Elliot are ready to extinguish the loathsome Juan Cortina. Unfortunately, their direct orders are to only spy on Cortina’s cattle rustlers, which makes them two easy gringo targets.”

Whiter Than Snow by Sandra Dallas (F DAL)

“On a spring afternoon in 1920, a small Colorado town is changed forever. A large split of snow hurtles down a rocky slope enveloping everything in its path.”

Beastly Things by Donna Leon (F LEO Bru.21)

“After this case, the city Brunetti loves will never quite be the same for him. The faceless man had bled to death, but no one has been reported missing, but something about the body, besides the rare disease that had disfigured the man, strikes him familiar.”
