New Books-April 2012

Listed below are just a few of the new titles we have on our shelves. Please stop by and see what’s new in April!

The Expats by Chris Pavone.

Kate Moore is a working mother, struggling to make ends meet, to raise children, to keep a spark in her marriage . . . and to maintain an increasingly unbearable life-defining secret. So when her husband is offered a lucrative job in Luxembourg, she jumps at the chance to leave behind her double-life, to start anew.
She begins to reinvent herself as an expat, finding her way in a language she doesn’t speak, doing the housewifely things she’s never before done—playdates and coffee mornings, daily cooking and never-ending laundry. Meanwhile, her husband works incessantly, at a job Kate has never understood, for a banking client she’s not allowed to know. He’s becoming distant and evasive; she’s getting lonely and bored.
Then another American couple arrives. Kate soon becomes suspicious that these people are not who they say they are, and she’s terrified that her own past is catching up to her. So Kate begins to dig, to peel back the layers of deception that surround her. She discovers fake offices and shell corporations and a hidden gun, a mysterious farmhouse and numbered accounts with bewildering sums of money, and finally unravels the mind-boggling long-play con that threatens her family, her marriage, and her life.
Stylish and sophisticated, fiercely intelligent and expertly crafted, The Expats proves Chris Pavone to be a writer of tremendous talent.

The Blind Spy by Alex Dryden.

The brilliant new international thriller by the modern spy master. Russia's intentions are aggressive. They want to control more of Europe. The Kremlin is threatening to invade Ukraine, a country vital to the West's oil and gas supplies. On the ground, in the seething pit of rumour and fear that is the city of Odessa, on the shore of the Black Sea, two top secret agents are searching for ways to prevent the horrors of invasion and war. Anna Resnikov, ex KGB, and Logan Patterson must negotiate the knife-edge of diplomacy and intimidation that pervades every corner of every street, cafe and back ally. They need information, the gold currency of espionage. The CIA is exerting heavy muscle and MI6 is influencing hearts and minds and both have their own agendas. Are there assassins on Anna and Logan's tail? And will they get to them before they uncover the identity of the deep, deep throat, known as the Blind Spy, who seems to have all the answers?

Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer. 

Did you know that the most creative companies have centralized bathrooms? That brainstorming meetings are a terrible idea? That the color blue can help you double your creative output?
From the New York Times best-selling author of How We Decide comes a sparkling and revelatory look at the new science of creativity. Shattering the myth of muses, higher powers, even creative “types,” Jonah Lehrer demonstrates that creativity is not a single gift possessed by the lucky few. It’s a variety of distinct thought processes that we can all learn to use more effectively.

New Books - January 2012

These just in!!!

We just got a pile of new book arrivals…which are just now being catalogued & processed…but, it’s NOT too soon to get your name on the HOLD list!

James Patterson’s Private #1 Suspect has arrived, as well as Gideon’s Corpse from the Preston/Child team and the latest from Nevada Barr, The Rope.

Here are a few other suggestions, fiction AND non-fiction from writers who might not…yet…be household names!

The Whisperer by Donato Carrisi. Michael Connelly says, “This story screams high tension, high states, and high velocity.”  From the book’s dust jacket: “Six severed arms are discovered, arranged in a mysterious circle and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and thirteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. Worse still, the girls’ bodies, alive or dead, are nowhere to be found. The Whisperer is that rare creation: a thought-provoking, intelligent thriller that is also utterly unputdownable.” An international best-seller that won five international literary prizes and has been sold in nearly twenty countries, you’ll want to put this one on your reading list! Translated from the Italian.

The Rook: On Her Majesty’s Supernatural Secret Service by Daniel O’Malley. A “Rook” is a high-level operative in a secret government agency that protects the world against supernatural threats. Myfanwy Thomas awakens in a London Park surrounded by dead bodies and with no memory of who she is or what she might be doing there. Her only clue is a letter in her hand which reads, “Dear You. The body you are wearing used to be mine.” She has to follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and escape those who want to destroy her. One reviewer says it is, “Harry Potter meets Ghostbusters meets War of the Worlds. The Rook is a scintillating supernatural swashbuckler, replete with spores, slime, and unrelenting suspense-and with three intrepid heroines (two of them sharing the same body.” Give it a try!

Break Down by Sara Paretsky. Fans of Chicago’s V.I. Warshawski won’t want to miss the latest in the series! A group of tweenage girls, who happen to come from Chicago’s most powerful families, enact an initiation ritual in an abandoned cemetery in imitation of a shape-shifting fictional character. There’s a problem…there’s a fresh dead body there, stabbed through the heart, vampire-style. For P.I. V.I. Warshawski, questions multiply faster than answers and answers are hard to come by. The Chicago Sun Times says, “Warshawski presents and irresistible combination – a cranky, vulnerable woman with a messy life, but a superhuman willingness to put herself in harm’s way for the sake of justice. She’s like Spider-Man with a P.I. license.”

Pity the Billionaire by Thomas Frank. From the dust jacket: “In Pity the Billionaire, Thomas Frank, the great chronicler of American paradox, describes what he calls the ‘hard-times swindle’: the sleight of hand that has caused dire economic circumstances to yield wildly unexpected political results. Using firsthand reporting, a deep knowledge of the American Right, and a wicked sense of humor, he gives us the first full account of the political alchemy that transformed disillusionment into orthodoxy, changed despair into profit and enlisted the powerless in a fan club for the prosperous.

WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM? by John Yates. Jon Yates is the “official problem solver of the Chicago Tribune and one of America’s leading consumer advocates. Say you’re being overcharged on your electric bill…or your insurance denies a claim you know it oughta pay…or the airline won’t reimburse you for lost luggage…or some similar travail. THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!!! Packed with tips, strategies and dozens of real life success stories, this book can enable you to SOLVE your problems!
