The Zodiac Deception by Gary Kriss (F KRI)

“Summer, 1942: The con man known as David Walker didn’t exactly volunteer, but OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan convinced him that serving his country and the cause of freedom by posing as German astrologer Peter Kepler was a better use of his time than going to prison for impersonating a Yale University professor. His mission: use his skills in illusion, sleight of hand and deception to gain Heinrich Himmler’s trust and persuade him to assassinate Adolph Hitler.”

Written in my Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon (F GAB)

Her baby was kidnapped; the apparent victim of a black market adoption ring, and for eight years, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. Now, there’s one last lead from a private investigator: Just a few miles away lives a girl who matches the profile. Could this be her beloved child?”

The Hidden Child by Camilla Läckberg (F LAC)

“Crime writer Erica Falck is shocked to discover a Nazi medal among her late mother’s possessions. Haunted by a childhood of neglect, she resolves to dig deep into her family’s past and finally uncover the reasons why.

But her questions are met with bizarre and evasive answers. Two days later he meets a violent death. Detective Patrik Hedström, Erica’s husband, soon becomes embroiled in the murder investigation. Who would kill so ruthlessly to bury secrets so old?”

The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand (F HIL)

“A touching new novel from Elin Hilderbrand in which a dying woman sets out to find love for those closest to her - before it’s too late.”

Robert Ludlum’s The Bourne Ascendancy by Eric Van Lustbader (F LUS Bou.12)

“Bourne is faced with an impossible mission. He has been hired to impersonate a high-level government minister at a political summit meeting in Qatar, shielding the minister from any assassination attempts. Suddenly, armed gunmen storm the room, killing everyone but Bourne. Their target, however, isn’t the minister Bourne is Bourne himself.”

A Beauty so Rare by Tamera Alexander (F ALE Bel.2)

“Eleanor Braddock, a spinster at 30, has long since dismissed any hope of marriage. But a clandestine act of kindness leads Eleanor to an unlikely path for her life--building an orphanage, a place that will house widows and orphans from the Civil War. And while Eleanor knows her own heart, she also knows her aunt will never approve.”
