New On the Shelf

The Moscow Deception by Karen Robards.  The life of a high-end thief with a tendency to steal from criminals is a hard life, as Bianca St. Ives recently had driven home.  After her last job put her square in the sights of a band of international assassins, Bianca is putting all the training from her father to its fullest use.  Managing to evade her pursuers she meets up with her father, fresh from faking his own death, to plan what may be their biggest job to date.  King Priam’s treasure, priceless artifacts stolen by the Russians during World War II, is under a constant and extremely heavy guard and a score almost too amazing for the pair to pass up.  However, the treasure isn’t all that Bianca is after, she also has a line on information that could take down the organization out for her blood for good. 

All the Wrong Places by Joy Fielding.  Four women each dealing with their own relationship woes turn to the world of online dating in search of love.  Cousins Paige and Heather have been rivals their whole lives, the latest contest being over Paige’s boyfriend, although now that Heather has him she isn’t sure she wants him.  The love of Joan’s life died two years ago and she is still trying to get her life back together.  Chloe is wondering how her unfaithful husband would feel if their situations were reversed.  Dealing with getting back into the dating scene, especially online, is anything but simple, and when one of them inadvertently makes a date with a killer the race is on to keep things from turning deadly.

The Reign of the Kingfisher by T.J. Martinson.  Thirty years ago a man calling himself the Kingfisher took it upon himself to clean up Chicago and be the hero the city needed.  When the Kingfisher was apparently killed, the progress he’d made in the city disappeared and things shifted back to the way they’d been before.  Now a gunman is holding a roomful of people hostage, people all with ties in their past to the Kingfisher.  The gunman demands proof the police helped fake the death of the Kingfisher or he will shoot the hostages one by one.  Marcus made his journalistic name covering five years of the Kingfisher, and after his disappearance, Marcus faded from the limelight.
