Nancy's Notes - Ocoter 27, 2011
Those cold nights are here, so why not curl up with a good book! Catherine Coulter has now completed, “Split Second”, the next installment of her FBI series. When Father Michael Joseph is viciously murdered in his San Francisco church, his identical twin brother, FBI agent Dane Carver is determined to find the person responsible. There is one witness, a homeless woman whose identity is unknown. When she comes forward, Dane finds himself in the role of bodyguard, as she just might be next on the killer’s list.
Julie Garwood’s newest title is “The Ideal Man”. After completing her residency at a large hospital, Dr. Ellie Sullivan’s life is turned upside down when she witnesses the shooting of an FBI agent in pursuit of a ruthless duo known as the Landrys. The only person to see the shooter’s face, Ellie is suddenly at the center of a heated criminal investigation headed by Agent Max Daniels. In spite of Ellie’s attraction to him, Max definitely isn’t the ideal man that Ellie has always imagined.
For our western readers, “The Last Manhunt”, by Ralph Compton should be a good read. Newspaper reporter Lester T. Booker traveled to Santa Fe to interview legendary lawman and dime novel hero Ransom March. The old ex-lawman is of questionable moral fiber who doled out death to unsuspecting enemies. One criminal who escaped Rance’s justice was a man known as the Gravedigger, known for burying his victims alive. Now the killer has resurfaced, compelling Rance to come out of retirement, so he can put the desperado six feet under once and for all.
