Nancy's Notes - January 25, 2012

“Explosive Eighteen” by Janet Evanovich, “Damage Control” by Denise Hamilton, “Red Mist” by Patricia Cornwell
  With the prediction of a major snowfall tonight, I want to remind you to check and see if the library is open during times of inclement weather. We don’t want you to struggle getting out of your driveway and then find the doors locked. 
    Janet Evanovich has recently completed number eighteen in her Stephanie Plum series. “Explosive Eighteen”  begins when Plum finds herself in trouble on a return trip from Hawaii to Newark. Heading home on Flight 127, her seatmate never returns after a layover in L.A. Now he’s dead. Thugs and the FBI are both looking for a photo the dead man was supposed to be carrying. Only one other person has seen the missing photo, Stephanie Plum, now she’s the target.
    Denise Hamilton’s, “Damage Control”, is a story of murder and scandal involving a wealthy political family. Maggie Silver is doing her best to climb the corporate ladder in her PR firm in Southern California. Their clients include movie stars and famous athletes. Now Maggie tackles her toughest client, Senator Henry Paxton, who also happens to be the father of Anabelle, Maggie’s estranged best friend from high school. Senator Paxton’s young female aide has been found murdered, and Maggie must run damage control to prevent the scandal from growing. Thrown back into the Paxton’s world, Maggie is unexpectedly flooded with memories from the stormy years in high school when her friendship with Anabelle was severed after a tragedy that neither of them has been able to forget. 
    Patricia Cornwell brings Kay Scarpetta back with, “Red Mist”. Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months ago, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly murders.
