Nancy's Notes - February 17, 2010
Once again we've had shortened hours in the past week due to the weather. I've enjoyed thumbing through magazines on those snowy evenings, finding recipes for "comfort foods". We have over 60 subscriptions covering a variety of interests. If you feel you have little time to read, magazines may be the answer.
James D. Doss is an author we have only been purchasing over the past year or so. He has become quite popular with our readers. His newest is entitled, "The Widow's Revenge". Investigator Charlie Moon is not surprised that he gets a call from widow Loyola Montoya fussing about witches. She swears there's a whole brood lurking in the woods just off her property harassing her with carcasses of dead animals. When no one takes her seriously, she takes matters into her own hands, with disastrous results. By the time Charlie arrives, it's too late to save her but that doesn't mean he can't help the widow get her revenge.
Eve Duncan is back in "Blood Game" by Iris Johansen. When a Georgia senator's daughter is found murdered, and her body drained of blood, Eve enters the world of a serial murderer. The psychopath might know something about Eve's missing daughter. But when Eve receives a terrifying calling card in the form of a single goblet of blood, she knows the taunting is over and the games have begun.
Clive Cussler has two new heroes, a husband and wife team, in "The Wrecker". Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Maryland, when they are shocked to discover a World War II German U-boat. Inside they find a bottle taken from Napoleon's famous "Lost Cellar" and they set out to find the rest of the collection.
In "Rough Country" by John Sandford, Virgil Flowers, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator, goes north to solve a murder. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, Virgil gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort where a woman has been shot while kayaking. As he begins investigating, he finds a web of connections among the people at the resort, the victim, and some local women. The more he digs, the more he discovers suspicion pointing in many directions.
