Nancy's Notes - December 30, 2010

“Heartless” by Diana Palmer, “Edge” by Jeffery Deaver

We will be closed again this Friday and Saturday for the holiday weekend. The library will close at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday and open again at noon on Monday, January 3. We hope you enjoy your holiday weekend.

Diana Palmer is back with, “Heartless”. FBI agent Kilraven lives by his own rules which include keeping his hands off Jacobsville’s resident, Winnie Sinclair. Shy and innocent, Winnie has nothing in common with the agent who has a haunted past. Winnie has had her share of sorrow and senses Kilraven’s pain, making a connection with the agent. When he makes the disturbing discovery that her family’s unsavory past might have a bearing on his case, Winnie is determined to help him crack it.

Jeffery Deaver is the author of twenty-seven novels. His latest, “Edge”, centers around a member of an anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance. Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned “lifter” hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary. His expertise lies in getting an “edge” on his victims, usually by kidnapping or threatening family until the victim caves under pressure. The job of keeping the Kessler family alive falls to a man named Corte, a senior federal protection officer known as a shepherd. For Corte, the reappearance of Loving, the man who six years earlier, had tortured and killed someone close to him, is also an opportunity to avenge his friend’s death. As he shepherds the Kesslers to a concealed safe house, Corte must anticipate Loving’s every step as the lifter moves in on his prey. With the help of razor-sharp investigator Claire duBois and his longtime ally, FBI agent Paul Fredericks, the three must pinpoint which of Kessler’s seemingly insignificant cases has triggered Loving’s return.

Stop in and see us: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m. or Thursday between 10:00 and 5:00. Remember we will be closed on New Years Eve and New Years.
