Nancy's Notes - April 1, 2010

"Deeper than the Dead by Tami Hoag, Worst Case" by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge, "Kisser" by Stewart Wood.

Tami Hoag will thrill readers with, "Deeper than the Dead", as a novel of suspense.  It begins in California in 1985, when four children discover a partially buried female body. Close behind the children is their teacher, Anne Navarre, who is heartbroken by their loss of innocence when the discovery is made. She doesn't realize this will mark the end of innocence for an entire community, as the ties of family and friends are tested by secrets uncovered by a serial killer's pattern of destruction.

James Patterson now has several writers working with him on his latest books. Our newest, "Worst Case", is written with the help of Michael Ledwidge. The story takes place in New York City where Detective Michael Bennett leads the investigation in the disappearance of the child of one of New York's wealthiest families. The boy is snatched off the street and held hostage. His parents can't save him, because this kidnapper isn't demanding money. Instead, he quizzes his prisoner on the price others pay for his life of luxury. Wrong answers are fatal. As another student disappears, his powerful family uses their leverage to turn up the heat on the mayor, to stop the killer. When the FBI sends Abduction Specialist, Agent Emily Parker, Bennett's life suddenly gets more complicated.

Stone Barrington is back in New York in Stuart Wood's, "Kisser". Barrington is looking forward to some downtime working cases for a prestigious law firm he doesn't wish to be associated with. When he crosses paths with a Broadway actress, Stone gets more deeply involved with show business than he'd expected. Then a wealthy art dealer's daughter leads him into the worlds of financial fraud. No stranger to high society, Stone realizes he must uncover the truth in a world where wealth and beauty may come at a high price.
