Against All Enemies by Tom Clancy
Mexican drug cartels and the Taliban conspire to bring terror and destruction to US streets. “In a story that races from the remote, war-scarred landscapes of the Middle East to the blood-soaked chaos of the U.S.-Mexican border, Tom Clancy once again delivers a heart-stopping thriller that is frighteningly close to reality.
The Jefferson Key by Steve Berry
Here’s what writer David Baldacci says about this book: “One of the most spellbinding and ingenious openings in all of thrillerdom…The cast of characters is huge but every one of them is memorable. The action is intense and masterfully choreographed. As always with Steve Berry, you’re educated about significant things while your knuckles are turning white and the pages are flying. The Jefferson Key is easily Cotton Malone’s most epic, swashbuckling adventure yet.”
To Be Sung Underwater by Tom McNeal
Judith Whitman’s twenty-five year marriage seems to be going south. Her thoughts return to a youthful love. “To Be Sung Underwater is the surprising and heartbreaking love story of a woman trying – almost too late – to remember, and the man who could never forget.”
