Adult Fiction

The Eleventh Victim by Nancy Grace.  CourtTV’s Nancy Grace releases her first fiction thriller.  Inspired by events from her own life (like the main character, Nancy Grace’s fiance was also murdered), this suspense novel follows a former D.A. being stalked by the serial killer she once put away.  He claims 10 of the murders he was convicted of, but denies the 11th, setting the story’s mystery up.

The Hope of Refuge by Cindy Woodsmall
South of Broad by Pat Conroy
Intervention by Robin Cook

Smash Cut by Sandra Brown.  Sandra Brown focuses on crime and suspense in Smash Cut, released last week. Inspired by film noir, this story gets readers wondering just how far a film fan might take his obsession.  Far enough to kill for thrills by reenacting classic film killings, or is it all a setup with a deeper motive?

Blindman’s Bluff by Faye Kellerman

That Old Cape Magic by Richard Russo

The Girl Who Played with Fire by Steig Larsson

Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann.  This NYC-based novel has received outstanding reviews, and even found its way to Amazon’s Best Books of 2009 list-in-progress.  The arresting sight of a man walking a tightrope between the twin towers (the book is set in the seedy ’70s) spans out into the stories of 10 different New Yorkers.  McCann’s New York is trashy, dim, and totally absorbing.

Curious what’s new at the library?  We’re always adding the latest releases to our collection for you.  A few interesting titles that have come through include:

Born to RunBorn to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall

“Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence.”

–Amazon review

More new Adult Non-Fiction:

Glenn Beck’s Common Sense

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

Cassandra’s only clue to her recently deceased grandmother’s roots is a book of fairy tales, and an inherited garden in England.  If you love fairy tale inspired fiction, Kate Morton’s new release is one to add to your to-read list.  This blend of enchantment and modern-day reality is part gothic mystery and part Secret Garden for grownups.  While it takes a while to get used to Morton’s method of jumping between time periods, the payoff is well worth the read, and the different timelines start to merge seamlessly about a third of the way through.  P.S.:  The latest Sisters Grimm novel is also in: Look for The Everafter Wars, or start back at the beginning with The Fairy Tale Detectives.
