Nancy's Notes - June 2, 2011

Blank Park Zoo June 6th, “Cold Wind” by C.J. Box, "Eve" by Iris Johansen.

  I’ve had five sections of students come and visit me today. It’s always fun to share a couple of stories and visit with the kids. If one of the children were yours, make sure you mark June 6 on your calendar. I have already told them to show at 1:00 p.m. that day to enjoy a program by the Blank Park Zoo. We had the zoo come last year and everyone enjoyed it. Their presentation is entitled, “Across the World” which will fit in well with this summer’s theme, “One World Many Stories”.
    C. J. Box has become quite popular with our readers. He tells a good story but is quite graphic so his books may not be for those with a weak stomach. “Cold Wind” is Box’s latest Joe Pickett novel. When Earl Alden is found dead, dangling from a wind turbine, it’s his wife, Missy, who is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his mother-in-law, whom he strongly dislikes. Now he doesn’t know what to do-especially when the early signs point to her being guilty as sin. But then things happen to make Joe wonder: is Earl’s death what it appears to be?
    Iris Johansen has recently completed her eleventh  Eve Duncan novel. Simply entitled, “Eve”, it is the first of a trilogy. Eve Duncan is a forensic sculptor who zeros in on the kidnapper and serial killer who years earlier abducted and murdered her seven-year-old daughter, Bonnie. With the help of CIA friend Catherine Ling, Eve narrows the field of suspects down to either Paul Black or John Gallo, both of whom work for a corrupt military intelligence officer. Paul has a history of killing children, and John is mentally unstable after a stint in North Korean prison.
