Nancy's Notes - September 13, 2012

“The Thief” by Clive Cussler, “Back Fire” by Catherine Coulter, "Changeling" by Philippa Gregory
Several boxes of books arrived last week so there should be a little something for all readers. Stop by and take a look, with the days getting shorter you may have extra time to read in the evenings. 
    We now have the fourth book of Clive Cussler’s Isaac Bell novels. It is entitled, “The Thief”. On the ocean liner Mauretania, two European scientists with a new invention are rescued from abduction by the Van Dorn Detective Agency’s chief investigator, Isaac Baell. They are not so lucky a second time when the thugs attack again, and one scientist dies. War clouds are looming and a ruthless espionage agent has spotted a priceless opportunity to give the German Empire an edge. It is up to Isaac Bell to figure out who he is, what he is up to, and stop him, but Bell may already be too late.
    Catherine Coulter’s, “Back Fire”, is the next installment in her FBI series.  San Francisco judge Ramsey Hunt, friend to FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich, begins the murder trial of Clive and Cindy Cahill only to have federal prosecutor Mickey O’Rourke, suddenly turn tentative and distracted. Hunt suspects that something is very wrong, and then O’Rourke goes missing and Judge Hunt gets shot in the back. Savich and Sherlock receive news of the attack as a mysterious note is delivered to Savich at the Hoover Building: FOR WHAT YOU DID YOU DESERVE THIS. Who sent the note? What does it mean?
    Philippa Gregory’s, “Changling”, takes place in 1453. Accused of heresy and expelled from his monastery, seventeen-year-old Luca Vero is recruited by a stranger to record the end of times across Europe. Luca is sent to map and travel to the frontier of good and evil. Seventeen-year-old Isolde is trapped in a nunnery to prevent her from claiming her rich inheritance. As the nuns in her care are driven mad by having strange visions and bleeding wounds, Luca is sent to investigate and all evidence points to Isolde. Luca and Isolde then embark on a search for truth, and to discover their own destinies.
