Arguably: Essays by Christopher Hitchens
Christopher Hitchens
Spanning four remarkable decades, a collection includes the best-selling author’s early writings on civil rights, Vietnam and international incidents, as well as his inflammatory — and now infamous — columns on the Clintons, the Catholic Church, Mother Theresa, radical Islam and an array of meditations on contemporary politics and political figures.
 
As the Pig Turns: An Agatha Raisin Mystery
M. C. Beaton
Winter Parva, a traditional Cotswolds village, has decided to throw a celebratory hog roast to mark the beginning of the winter holiday festivities and Agatha Raisin has arrived with friend and rival in the sleuthing business, Toni, to enjoy the merriment. But as the spit pig is carried towards the bed of fiery charcoal Agatha—and the rest of the village—realize that things aren’t as they seem.
 
The Bone House
Stephen R. Lawhead
When Kit Livingstone’s great grandfather appeared to him in a deserted alley during a London rainstorm, he revealed an incredible story: the ley lines throughout Britain are not merely the stuff of legend but are in fact pathways to other worlds. Braving constant danger, Kit accepts his place in the adventure, though, he has no idea just how critical a role he’ll play. As he comes closer to finding pieces of the missing map, his enemies and the scope of his mission increase exponentially.
 
The Crucible
Arthur Miller
Based upon the events surrounding the Salem Witch Trials in 1662, Arthur Miller’s play proves how the ignorance of good-intentioned people can destroy lives. Seen as a parable for 1950’s McCarthyism, The Crucible is an American classic.
 
Dark Predator: A Carpathian Novel
Christine Feehan
As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended.

The answer awaits him back home, in Peru, in the form of vengeance and betrayal.
 
The Devil’s Elixir

Every Day a Friday
Joel Osteen
Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Pastor Joel Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows readers how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o’clock on Friday.
 
Feast Day of Fools
James Lee Burke
Sheriff Hackberry Holland patrols a lawless stretch of land near the Texas-Mexico border. However, when former boxer and notorious town drunk Danny Boy Lorca claims to have witnessed the brutal torture and death, Sheriff Holland and his deputy, Pam Tibbs, investigate.
