Unsolved by James Patterson and David Ellis.  Young and driven, with a natural talent for seeing connections other miss, FBI agent Emmy Dockery has amassed an impressive record.  However, the latest case to come to her attention, a series of apparent accidents across the country, has Dockery perplexed.  The scope of the deaths is baffling and cannot be a coincidence, but how could the killer always be one step ahead of her?  FBI Internal Affairs special agent Harrison Bookman sees everyone in the FBI as a potential suspect in this case, even Dockery.  Compounding this is the fact that Dockery is his ex-wife, but Bookman must follow his gut and every lead no matter how difficult.  Moreover, Bookman isn’t the only one watching Dockery, gathering intel and waiting for the right time to move against her.

Chances Are… by Richard Russo.  On a beautiful September day, three old friends meet on Martha’s Vineyard.  Despite their differing backgrounds and current circumstances, they have been fast friends since meeting in college in the sixties.  Lincoln the commercial real estate broker, Teddy the tiny-press publisher, and Mickey the aging musician.  All of them have their secrets, and share one mystery that has puzzled them since 1971.  Forty-four years later, the three come together again at the place that has defined so much of their relationship and their lives.  Bound by ties as strong as any family, their past and present will be confronted and perhaps new discoveries will be made.
