Nancy and I want to give a great big “THANK YOU” to volunteer Bob Laury, who cheerfully wears many hats at the library. Last week Bob put together five steel shelving units for our storage room! Subsequently, we’ve been happily organizing all our miscellaneous “stuff” for the new year and appreciating Bob more than ever!

Fiction:

The Execution by Dick Wolf (F WOL Fis.2)

“NYPD Detective Jeremy Fisk must stop an assassin in the pay of a shadowy cartel in The Execution, a tense thriller that superbly blends suspense, politics, intrigue and high-flying action in the tradition of Vince Flynn, David Baldacci, and Robert Crais.”

Standup Guy by Stuart Woods (F WOO Bar.28)

“On a hunt that leads from Florida’s tropical beaches to the posh vacation homes of the Northeast, Stone finds himself walking a tightrope between ambitious authorities and seedy lowlifes who all have the same prize in their sights. It’s winner-takes-all . . . and Stone will need every bit of his cunning and resourcefulness to be the last man standing.”

Innocence by Dean R. Koontz (F KOO)

“He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from a world that will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Nothing less than destiny has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.”

The Pagan Lord by Bernard Cornwell (F COR Alf.7)

“At the onset of the tenth century, England is in turmoil. Uhtred, once Alfred 19s great warrior but now out of favor with the new king, must lead a band of outcasts north to recapture his old family home, that great Northumbrian fortress, Bebbanburg. Every Saxon kingdom is drawn into the bloodiest battle yet with the Danes; a war which will decide the fate of every king, and the entire English nation.”

In the Blood by Lisa Unger (F UNG)

“Lana Granger lives a life of lies. When Lana’s closest friend, Beck, mysteriously disappears, Lana resumes her lying ways - to friends, to the police, to herself. The police have a lot of questions for Lana, but she will do anything to hide the truth, but it might not be enough to keep her ominous secrets buried: someone else knows about Lana’s lies. And he’s dying to tell.”

Fear Nothing by Lisa Gardner (F GAR War.7)

“The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn’t just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down.”

Greasy Grass by Johnny D. Boggs (WF BOG)

“Boggs brings the events and personalities involved in the Battle of the Little Big Horn to life by a series of first-hand accounts, and it is a work of fiction only because some of the voices heard such as General Custer and Crazy Horse left no written record, but their testimony is recorded as the reader moves from the perspective of one participant to another.”

Robert B. Parker’s Bull River by Robert Knott (WF KNO Col.2)

“After hunting down murderer and bandito Captain Alejandro Vasquez, Territorial Marshal Virgil Cole and Deputy Everett Hitch return him to Citadel to stand trial. No sooner do they remand Vasquez into custody when a major bank robbery occurs and the lawmen quickly find themselves tasked with a new job: investigate the robbery of Comstock Bank, recover the loot, and bring the criminals to justice.”

River Road by Jane Ann Krentz (F KRE)

“It’s been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. Now, returning after her aunt’s fatal car accident, Lucy’s not a teenager anymore. She works for a private investigation firm as a forensic genealogist, while her teenage crush, Mason, has quit the police force to run a successful security firm. When he and Lucy make a shocking discovery inside her aunt’s house, and some old friends start acting suspicious, Mason’s quietly fierce instincts kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he’ll save her again.”

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd (F KID)

“Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her in the wealthy Grimke household. The Grimke’s daughter, Sarah, has known from an early age she is meant to do something large in the world, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women. We follow their remarkable jour
