NEW ARRIVALS: (All quotes are from the publishers’ summaries)The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly (F CON Hal.4) (Mickey Haller #4)“Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. But just when Mickey thinks criminal court is in his rearview mirror, one of his new clients is accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.”The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party by Alexander McCall Smith (F MCC Det. 12)(The Ladies’ Detective Agency #12)”At a remote cattle post south of Gaborone two cows have been killed, and Precious . . . is asked to investigate by a rather frightened and furtive gentleman. It is an intriguing problem with plenty of suspects—including, surprisingly, her own client. To complicate matters, Mma Ramotswe is haunted by a vision of her dear old white van, and Grace Makutsi witnesses it as well.”SixKill by Robert B. Parker (F PAR Spe.39)“Bad-boy actor Jumbo Nelson is accused of the rape and murder of a young woman. In the course of the investigation, Spenser encounters Jumbo’s bodyguard: a young former football-playing Native American named Zebulon Sixkill . . . whose lack of discipline is more than made up for by his quick way with a gun.”The Sixth Man by David Baldacci (F BAL)“Edgar Roy—an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility—is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called . . . to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins—en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered.”Tenth Anniversary by James Patterson (F PAT Wom.10)(Women’s Murder Club #10)“Detective Lindsay Boxer finally gets married. But a missing newborn and a series of violent attacks push the Women’s Murder Club back to full throttle before the wedding gifts are even unwrapped.”Rogue Forces by Dale Brown (F BRO)“”His election promised a new day for America . . . but dangerous storm clouds are on the horizon. The newly inaugurated president Joseph Gardner pledged to start pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq on his first day in office—no questions asked. Yet Iraq quickly reemerges as a hot zone: Kurdish nationalist attacks have led the Republic of Turkey to invade northern Iraq. Former president Kevin Martindale and retired Air Force lieutenant-general Patrick McLanahan have left government behind for the lucrative world of military contracting. When McLanahan makes the decision to take the fight to the Turks, can the President rein him in?”The Gun That Wasn’t There by Russell S. Smith (T976.4 SMI)“Russell Smith, a former chief of police and trained investigator, has done a remarkable job of putting together a modern western manhunt saga that kept much of Southwestern Texas attuned to news reports of an elusive Mexican bandito not fearful of using a weapon to escape capture by the Texas sheriff whom he shot and left for dead. A true study of modern crime fighting in an Old West setting.” Ross McSwain
