The Last Dead Girl by Harry Dolan


David Loogan, home inspector in Rome, New York, meets Jana Fletcher, law student, when he stops after she hits a deer with her car. He gives her a ride home and they become involved in a relationship that lasts 10 days. Then she is murdered and David becomes the prime suspect.
As the story unfolds, the story jumps back and forth in time from after Jana is killed to when she was still alive. Jana has a stalker, named K, who keeps his identity hidden until the surprising twist near the end of the story. Suspects abound from the cousins, Eli and Luke Daw, the professor who works for the Innocence Project with Jana, the Pruetts, and Poe Washburn. Washburn is responsible for putting one of the Pruetts in jail for murder when he says he hears a jailhouse confession about the man murdering his own wife. Jana feels that the case is worthy of the Innocence Project although her professor has doubts. 
Frank Moretti, Homicide Detective, lets David go for lack of evidence. David tries to convince Moretti that he is looking in the wrong places for the killer and works hard to uncover what was really going on in Jana’s life prior to the ten days David knew her.

The suspense builds as the suspects are brought forward and then eliminated by alibi or death. The story of Jana becomes more complicated as David finds out that Jana’s dreams of being trapped underground are all too real and her death is really only the tip of the iceberg to what really happened to Jana.

Command Authority by Tom Clancy




Command Authority

About the Book: There's a new strong man in Russia but his rise to power is based on a dark secret hidden decades in the past. The solution to that mystery lies with a most unexpected source, President Jack Ryan.

About Tom Clancy: Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013. http://www.tomclancy.com/tom_clancy.php

Smash Trial By Fire By Chris A. Bolton

Can an ordinary boy gain superpowers? Ten-year-old Andrew’s favorite superhero is Defender, and daydreams of being like just like him. One day something happens that means Andrew might get his wish to be super fast, super strong, and able to fly.

When Defender falls victim to one force he can’t repel, Andrew is in the right place at the right time - or maybe it will turn out to be the wrong place at the wrong time.

Andrew accidentally inherits Defender’s super powers and has to learn how to use them - birds can be quite inconvenient when you are trying to get the hang of flying. Who killed Defender and will they come after Andrew when they discover a young boy has gained his much sought after superpowers?

Smash is a comic book collaboration between brothers Chris Bolton and Kyle Bolton, and began as a free webcomic. Switching between Andrew’s normal life and that of his new alter ego - soon dubbed Smash by the media - the story and its smooth, clean artwork are classic comic book style, and easy to read.

There’s something appealing about Andrew in his homemade superhero costume - hooded cape, belt, big boots and goggles - and as any true superhero should, he dodges baddies and fights to save the day. Smash: Trial By Fire is book one in this graphic novel series which is marketed at a broad age range, and is all around fun for L-plate superheroes in waiting. ~Kids' Book Review~

While the movie The Butler is set against historical events, the title character and his family are fictionalized. From the moment I read Wil Haygood's article about him in the Washington Post, I was very moved by the real life of Eugene Allen. I remember Wil Haygood sharing with me his inspiration for writing his original article. On the cusp of Obama's election he sought to find an African American butler who had seen firsthand the civil rights movement from both within and outside the White House.  from the Foreword.

Modern ideas get tangled up with traditional ones in the latest intriguing installment in the beloved, best-selling No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series. 
 
Precious Ramotswe has taken on two puzzling cases. First she is approached by the lawyer Mma Sheba, who is the executor of a deceased farmer’s estate. Mma Sheba has a feeling that the young man who has stepped forward may be falsely impersonating the farmer’s nephew in order to claim his inheritance. Mma Ramotswe agrees to visit the farm and find out what she can about the self-professed nephew. Then the proprietor of the Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon comes to Mma Ramotswe for advice. The opening of her new salon has been shadowed by misfortune. Not only has she received a bad omen in the mail, but rumors are swirling that the salon is using dangerous products that burn people’s skin. Could someone be trying to put the salon out of business? 
 
Meanwhile, at the office, Mma Ramotswe has noticed something different about Grace Makutsi lately. Though Mma Makutsi has mentioned nothing, it has become clear that she is pregnant . . . But in Botswana—a land where family has always been held above all else—this may be cause for controversy as well as celebration. 
 
With genuine warmth, sympathy, and wit, Alexander McCall Smith explores some tough questions about married life, parenthood, grief, and the importance of the traditions that shape and guide our lives.

Just one evil act by Elizabeth George





















"As her devoted readers know, George’s D.I. Lynley procedurals are more about characters than crime. This entry is certainly no different, but, unlike the most recent books, which center on a distraught Lynley, recovering from his wife’s murder, the focus is on Lynley’s partner (and polar opposite), D.S. Barbara Havers. It begins when Taymullah Azhar, Barbara’s neighbor, asks for help in finding his beloved daughter, Hadiyyah, with whom his wife has absconded."
Excerpt from Booklist

The first book in the series, A Great Deliverance (1988), was a 1988 Agatha Award for Best First Novel, 1989 Anthony Award for Best First Novel, Finalist 1989 Edgar Award for Best First Novel and Finalist 1989 Macavity Award for Best Novel.

"When Robert Morgan’s novel Gap Creek was published in 1999, it became an Oprah Book Club Selection and an instant national bestseller, attracting hundreds of thousands of readers to its story of a marriage begun with love and hope at the turn of the twentieth century. Set in the Appalachian South, it followed Julie and Hank Richards as they struggled through the first year and a half of their union.
But what, readers asked, of the years that followed? What did the future hold for these memorable characters?
The Road from Gap Creek holds the answers to these questions, as Robert Morgan takes us back into their lives, telling their story and the stories of their children through the eyes of their youngest daughter, Annie. Through Annie, we watch as the four Richards children create their own histories, lives that include both triumphs and hardship in the face of the Great Depression and then World War II."
