Great New Books

The Woman in the Woods by John Connolly

A young woman whose corpse is found in the forest gave birth before dying, and Charlie Parker is hired to keep an eye on the police investigating the baby’s whereabouts. Unfortunately, someone badly intentioned is after the baby too. The end result is both unnerving and moving. This may be Connolly’s masterpiece.

The Pharaoh Key by Preston & Child

Terminally ill Gideon Crew is shocked when a former employer disappears. Then he learns that the final project of her now shuttered lab involved translating an ancient stone tablet whose secrets could save Gideon’s life—or end it with a bang. The authors keep the tone light and the reader guessing right up to the ending.  Fans of the Indiana Jones movies will find plenty to like.

The Moscow Deception by Karen Robards

In bestseller Robards exciting follow-up to 2017’s The Ultimatum, master thief Bianca St. Ives has recently discovered an explosive secret about herself, and she’s being hunted by those who are desperate to keep that secret contained. Dodging bullets and fists are all in a day’s work for Bianca, and while her adventures may stretch credulity, readers will likely be having too much fun to care.

Line of Sight by Tom Clancy

Clancy’s thriller industry lives on in this Jack Ryan Jr. adventure by Maden. Vladimir Vasilev heads the Iron Syndicate, an international criminal enterprise, and he’s dying of cancer. Even bad guys have bucket lists, and his fondest wish is to have Jack Jr.’s head cut off and delivered to him. There’s plenty of action. Fast moving and exciting, this one reads like it came from Clancy himself.

Jerusalem by Jay Sekulow

New York Times bestselling author Jay Sekulow presents a political and historical rationale for the existence of Israel as a sovereign nation. He looks at the legal case for its prominence, as well as the historical and political rationale for its existence, and encourages readers to stand with him against the hatred, lies, and efforts to delegitimize one of the world’s oldest nations.


Continuing on the subject of everyday germ offenders you may not have thought about: Gas pump handles- 71 percent of these handles are highly contaminated with illness-causing bacteria. Escalator rails and ATM buttons also. Use disposable gloves; Office desk and telephone are prime breeding grounds for germs, use an antibacterial wipe; Gym equipment- clean the equipment before and after you use it, and place a towel over any surfaces you plan to sit on. Most germs are nothing to worry about but as you get older, your immune system gets weaker and germ-related illness will usually be more severe.

Library Laugh

For our daughters birthday we bought her a fish. We couldn’t help laughing when on the way she announced “the fish’s name is Sparingly.” “How do you know?” I asked. “Look” she responded “it says “feed sparingly 3 times daily”.
