Check It Out @ The Library - April 12, 2018

"The Wife" by Alafair Burke. "Red Alert" by James Patterson. "City of Endless Night" by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

New On the Shelf

The Wife by Alafair Burke.  Angela thought it would just be a fling with Jason when they met at the East Hampton party she was catering.  However, the NYU economics professor had other plans that ended with them married a year later.  Angela saw the marriage as a desperately needed reboot for her and her son, and a way to distance herself from the tragedies of her past.  Six years later Jason’s bestselling book thrusts the family into the spotlight and accusations start building against Jason.  When Angela looks set to testify, she must decide if she can truly trust her husband, and if she can bare to dig up her own past.

Red Alert by James Patterson.  The elite investigative task force, NYPD Red, handles the biggest and most high profile crimes in New York City.  The best of the best is Detective Zach Jordan, an absolute professional who lets nothing get in the way of his job, not even the woman who broke his heart back at the police academy.  They have managed to work together in the past, but can they put aside the past to cover their biggest cast yet?

City of Endless Night by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.  When the hunt for a missing girl ends with the discovery of her body, minus the head, the clues point to two killers.  With a pair of devious killers running free, the best are called in to help, Vincent D’Agosta and Special Agent Pendergast.  With Special Agent Pendergast being back on his home turf the hope is for an advantage, but against a killer –or killers- of such skill and savagery that may not be enough.
