Omens: A Cainsville Novel
Armstrong, Kelley
In this launch of a new series from the author of the hugely popular “Otherworld” books, wealthy, 24-year-old Ivy Leaguer Olivia Taylor Jones is happily engaged when she discovers that she is adopted–and that her biological parents are serial killers imprisoned for life. Olivia’s efforts to find out more about them take her first to her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, and then to secretive Cainsville, IL, where she and Gabriel look into evidence that could prove her parents’ innocence. There, Olivia finds herself using strange talents hidden since childhood that give her special appeal to the spooky Cainsville residents while bringing out the bad guys.
 
The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense
Davidson, Diane Mott
When a colleague–a woman who resembles Goldy–is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu. With time running out, Goldy must roll up her sleeves, sharpen her knives, and make a meal out of a devious murderer, before that killer can serve her up cold.
 
Sweet Thunder
Doig, Ivan
In the winter of 1920, a quirky bequest draws Morrie Morgan back to Butte, Montana, from a year-long honeymoon with his bride, Grace. But the mansion bestowed by a former boss upon the itinerant charmer, who debuted in Doig’s bestselling “The Whistling Season,” promises to be less windfall than money pit. And the town itself, with its polyglot army of miners struggling to extricate themselves from the stranglehold of the ruthless Anaconda Copper Mining Company, seems–like the couple’s fast-diminishing finances–on the verge of implosion.
 
The Kill List
Forsyth, Frederick
In Virginia, there is an agency bearing the bland name of Technical Operations Support Activity, or TOSA. Its one mission is to track, find, and kill those so dangerous to the United States that they are on a short document known as the Kill List. TOSA actually exists. So does the Kill List.
 
Hotshot
Garwood, Julie
Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit–only then will they own it.  It’s soon apparent to Peyton that their efforts are being sabotaged, but she refuses to let the threats scare her–until she’s nearly killed. She calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help. He saved her life once; he can do it again?
 
The Last Witness
Griffin, W. E. B. / Butterworth, William E.
Russian girls are being smuggled in to work in the sex trade, and now some of them are dying or just disappearing. The trail leads right to Philadelphia–where Payne learns that’s not all. It isn’t just Russian girls who are vanishing. Teenage girls are being lured from foster homes. Police department sources are turning up dead. The lone living witness has gone into hiding, with everybody–the Russians, the cartels, some of Philadelphia’s most powerful politicians–all looking for her. It’s up to Payne to find her–and hope he gets to her first.
 
I, Saul
Jenkins, Jerry B. / MacDonald, James
Told from the point of view of the disciple Luke, the apostle Paul and “Auggie,” a modern-day scholar, I, Saul, is a fast-paced story of intrigue and mystery. Readers will be reminded of Indiana Jones and the DiVinci code as they become absorbed in this page-turner by a master storyteller.

This blessing–or curse–gives Charlie the power to hunt down and catch madmen and murderers. It’s also turned her love life upside down by drawing her into a hopelessly passionate relationship with the lingering ghost of charismatic bad boy Michael Garland.
