The Forgotten
Baldacci, David
In Paradise, nothing is what it seems.  Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. Now he has a new case-but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.  A picture-perfect town on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Paradise thrives on the wealthy tourists and retirees drawn to its gorgeous weather and beaches. The local police have ruled his aunt’s death an unfortunate, tragic accident. But just before she died, she mailed a letter to Puller’s father, telling him that beneath its beautiful veneer, Paradise is not all it seems to be.
 
The Black Box
Connelly, Michael
In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved.
 
The Sanctuary
Dekker, Ted
THE SANCTUARY is the gripping story of vigilante priest, Danny Hansen, who is now serving a fifty year prison term in California for the murder of two abusive men. Filled with remorse, Danny is determined to live out his days by a code of non-violence and maneuvers deftly within a ruthless prison system.   But when Renee Gilmore, the woman he loves, receives a box containing a bloody finger and draconian demands from a mysterious enemy on the outside, Danny must find a way to escape.
 
Dying on the Vine
Elkins, Aaron J.
No annotation @ this time.
 
Notorious Nineteen
Evanovich, Janet
No plot details–there never are on an Evanovich novel–but clearly Stephanie Plum is back after the million-copy-plus best seller “Explosive Eighteen”, and a big, bold marketing campaign is promised.
 
Goldberg Variations
Isaacs, Susan
A septuagenarian business owner evaluates her grandchildren as possible successors to her multi-million-dollar beauty empire, including New York movie studio editor Daisy, womanizing sports PR representative Matt and religious Legal Aid lawyer Raquel. By the John Steinbeck Award-winning author of Any Place I Hang My Hat.
 
The Bridge
Kingsbury, Karen
Ryan Kelly spends plenty of time at The Bridge–the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin, Tennessee–remembering the times he and Molly Allen–who moved to Portland–once spent there, and now, with the bookstore in deep financial trouble, it will take a miracle to keep tragedy from unfolding.
 
Flight Behavior
Kingsolver, Barbara
Dellarobia Turnbow got pregnant in high school; now, some 11 years into her unhappy marriage, she’s ready for a big change, and she thinks she’s found it with a randy young telephone lineman. But on her way to a rendezvous, she is waylaid by the sight of a forest ablaze with millions of butterflies. Their usual migratory route has been disrupted, and what looks to be a stunningly beautiful view is really an ominous sign, for the Appalachian winter could prove to be the demise of the species.
 
Looking for Yesterday
Muller, Marcia
Three years ago, Caro Warrick was acquitted for the murder of her best friend Amelia Bettencourt, but the lingering doubts of everyone around Caro are affecting her life. Sharon McCone is confident that she can succeed where other detectives have failed (though at times it’s hard to shake her own misgivings about what happened), but when Caro is brutally beaten right at Sharon’s doorstep, the investigation takes on a whole new course. How many more people remain at risk until Amelia’s murderer is finally caught?
 
Merry Christmas, Alex Cross
Patterson, James
It’s Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross is called away from his family to resolve a horrific hostage situation that is spiraling out of control.
