NEW TITLES AT THE LIBRARY

BROTHERHOOD IN DEATH by J.D.Robb

Eve Dalles investigates the kidnapping of a former senator and the assault of Dennis Mira which evolves into something much more sinister. The reader can follow the clues in this story and still be surprised by the big reveals. The challenge of this book is to decide if the perpetrator or the victims deserve more sympathy. Be warned though, this is not a tale for the faint-hearted!

ORPHAN X by Gregg Hurwitz

This is a gripping thriller. Evan Smoak has lots of skills, a dangerous past and a personal mission. Evan was raised and trained as part of off-the-books Orphan program which was designed to create deniable intelligence agents. Now someone is on his trail, trying to find and eliminate him. This novel grabs you on the first page and does not relent. This is the first in a series featuring Evan Smoak.

THE LONG, HOT SUMMER by Kathleen MacMahon

Deidre O’Sullivan is about to turn eight with two daughters, a son, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Packed with life events and how they affect the family, this book provides laugh-out-loud moments and some poignant moments. The opposite of crime fiction this is an easy saga-type read set in contemporary Ireland that draws the reader into a family of warm and unique individuals.

SHOPAHOLIC TO THE RESCUE by Sophie Kinsella

This is the latest book in the ‘Shopaholic’ series. Becky Brandon is on a road trip to Las Vegas. The trip is full of fun, as is the book, with lots of substance and surprises. Perhaps Becky’s daughter Minnie could be the heroine of a new series by Sophie so we can all continue to enjoy the adventures of great entertaining characters.

THE PRIME SUSPECT CASES by Lynda LaPlante

Jane Tennison solves cases in an environment of male chauvinism in a male dominated workplace. This book could be considered a little slow to start by the pace picks up with twists and turns galore uncovering more evidence. LaPlante is a skilled writer who can end a book with a satisfying finish as well as something of a cliff hanger. This is a must read for fans of the TV series.
