January New Books

There is a section in the Library called New Books, where we put new books when they arrive. They usually stay there for a few months before being shelved in their appropriate place. This section is a favorite place for many of our patrons. But in case you haven't been here in a while, here are some of the new arrivals.

  • Dead or Alive by Tom Clancy with Grant Blackwood. Many characters from Clancy's previous novels make an appearance as an intelligence group tracks a vicious terrorist called the Emir.
  • Cross Fire by James Patterson. Alex Cross investigates a professional assassination in Washington and receives a chilling call from his deadliest adversary. 
  • The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest by Stieg Larsson. The third volume of a trilogy about a Swedish hacker and a journalist. 
  • Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King. Four long stories which are light on the supernatural and deal mostly with grisly human behavior.
