Velocity: A Novel
by Dean Koontz (Author)
If you don’t take this note to the police . . . I will kill a lovely blond schoolteacher. . . . If you do . . . I will instead kill an elderly woman active in charity work. You have six hours to decide. The choice is yours.

The typewritten note under his windshield seems like just a sick joke. But in less than twenty-four hours, Billy Wiles, an ordinary, hardworking guy, is about to see his life take on the speed of a nightmare. Because a young blond schoolteacher is murdered—and now Billy has another note. And another deadline. This time he knows it’s no joke. He’s racing a killer faster than evil itself. And Billy must accept his terrifying challenge: The choice is yours.




The Three Miss Margarets: A Novel (Ballantine Reader’s Circle)
by Louise Shaffer (Author)
Miss Peggy, Dr. Maggie, and Miss Li’l Bit, friends and confidantes for nearly a lifetime, find it funny and bewildering that they have become icons in Charles Valley, Georgia. Little does the rest of the town know that beneath the irreproachable façades of its three doyennes lies an explosive decades-old secret that is about to be revealed.

Thirty-odd years ago the three Miss Margarets did something extraordinary, clandestine, and very illegal. Although they are haunted by the night that changed their lives, they believe that their crime was simply a matter of righting an egregious wrong. But when a stranger’s arrival in town and a tragic death open the floodgate of memory, their loyalty, friendship, and honor are tested in ways they could never have imagined—particularly when they have to contend with Laurel Selene, a young woman who has spent her life nursing an alcoholic mother and a huge grudge. Now Laurel is on the verge of discovering what happened the night the three Miss Margarets swore their oath of secrecy. Once she knows, will she reveal the truth about the three women she was raised to despise? Or will she face her own troubled history and put the dark legacy they all share behind them?


Orchard Grove
by Vincent Zandri (Author)
Sometimes fences make for nice neighbors. Other times they hide the evil within. Orchard Grove is a town like any other, with quiet neighborhoods and apple groves . . . though Ethan, the depressed screenplay writer, and his secretive wife, Susan, would tell you differently. So would the seductive serial killer living next door.

The apple trees are fertilized with evil, and the backyard fences aren’t enough to stop the manipulative mind games and dangerous lies. The lines between good and evil are blurred, and then erased, as Ethan does what it takes to survive. Orchard Grove is a thriller from a writer lauded as one of the very best working today, that will keep you turning pages long into the night.



Bone Set II – Gina Mazzio RN Thrillers 4-6 (Gina Mazzio RN Medical Thriller Series Book 2)
by Bette Golden Lamb (Author), J. J. Lamb (Author)
Murder, mayhem, and Mazzio continue at lightning speed in this second set of three Bone Series Medical Thrillers from the Lambs.
RN Gina Mazzio is sometimes battered, but never daunted in her life-threatening pursuit of individuals and groups who would do harm to her patients and co-workers.
This action-packed, shocking, and take-no-prisoners medical thriller series is definitely not for the faint of heart. Fans of the more hard-boiled medical thrillers (and also of Patricia Cornwell) will eat it up … as will lovers of, strong women sleuths, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction, especially fans of Tess Gerritsen, Carolyn McCray, Eileen Dreyer, Lisa Genova, and Robin Cook.
