Nancy's Notes - November 29, 2012

“Danny’s Mom” by Elaine Wolf, "Poseidon's Arrow" by Clive Cussler, “The Forgotten” by David Baldacci.

   We were certainly busy before the Thanksgiving holiday. Now that the Christmas activities are ready to begin, we hope you won’t quit relaxing with a good book. You might enjoy, “Danny’s Mom”, by Elaine Wolf. Beth Maller returned to her job as a high school guidance counselor shortly after her son, Danny, is killed in a car accident. She didn’t want Danny to drive on that snowy night, but her husband said the roads were safe. Beth now blames him for her son’s death. Back at work, Beth fights against the everyday injustices that never bothered her until his death. As she struggles to find a “new normal”, she becomes out spoken, risking her career and her marriage.
    Many of you have enjoyed Clive Cussler’s adventures featuring Dirk Pitt. The United States has developed the greatest advance in defense technology in decades, an  attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. There is only one problem, a key element of the prototype is missing, and the inventor is dead.
    We have David Baldacci’s latest, “The Forgotten”, in both regular and large print. Army Special Agent John Puller is a combat veteran. The U.S. Army relies on him to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case: his aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida. The community thrives on wealthy tourists and retirees. The local police have ruled his aunt’s death a tragic accident. But before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller’s father, telling him that beneath its veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.
