The Butler by Wil Haygood (921 HAY)


The Kill List by Frederick Forsyth (F FOR)

“In Virginia, there is an agency bearing the bland name of Technical Operations Support Activity, or TOSA. Its one mission is to track, find, and kill those so dangerous to the United States that they are on a short document known as the Kill List. TOSA actually exists. So does the Kill List.”

Waiting for Daybreak by Kathryn Cushman (F CUS) Christian Fiction

“Paige Woodward is a woman without choices. Her destitute mother’s only hope for a cure isn’t covered by insurance. When a dream opportunity arises at a brand-new pharmacy, Paige is willing to keep quiet about her past to make sure she lands the job.”

Unleashed by David Rosenfelt (F ROS Car.11)

“Sam Willis is stunned to receive a phone call from Barry Price, a high school friend he hasn’t spoken to in years, pleading for help with something too frightening to discuss on the phone. Barry needs Sam’s financial acumen and Sam’s lawyer friend Andy Carpenter’s legal expertise - and he needs them immediately. Barry’s already on an airplane headed who-knows-where. But when they learn that Barry’s plane has crashed, they come to the terrifying realization that Sam was also supposed to have been killed on that plane.” 

Good As Gone by Douglas Corleone (F COR)

“Former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk works as a private contractor, tracking down and recovering children who were kidnapped by their own estranged parents. He only has one rule: he won’t touch stranger abduction cases. Until, that is, six-year-old Lindsay Sorkin disappears from her parents’ hotel room in Paris, and the French police deliver Simon an ultimatum: he can spend years in a French jail, or he can take the case and recover the missing girl.”

Dallas Noir edited by David hale Smith (F SMI)

“In Texas’ ultimate noir town, nasty surprises lurk around every turn in this original anthology.”

The Overton Window by Glenn Beck (F BEC)

“An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don’t know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact - or, more important, which side to fight for.”

Tell No Lies by Gregg Hurwitz (F HUR)

“A series of anonymous threats intended for others puts a man - and everyone he loves - in the path of a relentless killer.”

The Clayborne Brides by Julie Garwood (F GAR Cla.2, 3, 4)

“Garwood continues the story of the Claybornes of Montana by telling the tales of three of the brothers — Adam, Douglas, and Travis. Read the stories of these spirited young men who were once a gang of street urchins and find out about the women who manage to win their hearts.”

Drawing Conclusions by Donna Leon (F LEO Bru.20)

“Brunetti is suffering through a dinner with Vice Questore Patta and his nasty Lieutenant Scarpa when his telefonino rings. An old woman’s body has been found in a Spartan apartment. When the medical examiner rules that the woman died of a heart attack, it seems there is nothing for Brunetti to investigate. But he can’t shake the feeling that something may have created conditions that led to her heart attack.”

Amity and Sorrow by Peggy Riley (F RIL)

“In the wake of a suspicious fire, Amaranth gathers her children and flees from the cult where her children were born and raised. Now she is on the run with no one but her barely-teenage daughters, Amity and Sorrow, neither of whom have ever seen the outside world, to help her. Amaranth crashes the car, leaving the family stranded. Help comes in the unlikely form of a downtrodden farmer, a man who offers sanctuary when the women need it most.”
