Inside Book:

In the night-still canyons of the Arizona desert, a girl is on the run. Alone but for her beloved red-tailed hawk, she flees from the dark shadows of her young life, the horror she has witnessed…and the terror that now stalks her. New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance returns with her eighth novel in the highly acclaimed Joanna Brady mystery series. Set against the backdrop of the modern west, this gripping tale finds Sheriff Brady juggling a precarious overload in both her personal and professional lives. About to be married, Joanna's facing a daughter turning twelve and going on twenty, a meddlesome mother micro-managing her wedding, and new in-laws arriving any day. The sudden death of her much-loved neighbor and handyman, Clayton Rhodes, creates further turmoil, leaving Joanna shocked, saddened, and the target of Clayton's irate and irrational daughter, who accuses the Sheriff's Department of covering up a possible murder. But amidst the uproar, the report of a homicide at Cochise Stronghold in the Dragoon Mountains quickly captures Joanna's full attention. An Indian woman has been found shot to death--a woman recently released from prision after serving time for the manslaughter killing of her husband. She is the mother of a missing fifteen-year-old, Lucy Ridder. The death at first appears to be a case of domestic rage finally exploding'and a troubled teen runaway may be a victim, or a cold-blooded killer. Yet as Joanna deals with the long-standing troubles of Clayton Rhodes' family and digs deeper into the mysterious life of Lucy and her family, she discovers that investigating family hostilities is leading her down a twisted trail of hatred, greed, and far-reaching consequences--and into a dangerous world where violence is the first response and long buried secrets are a reason to kill…or die. Once again, J.A. Jance delivers a gritty, deftly written thriller that unfolds on a vivid landscape of raw beauty and unrelenting danger. And, as always, Sheriff Joanna Brady brings the setting to life with the sensitivity, spirit, and intense passion for justice that makes Jance novels ring with authenticity.

Book Summary:

After the writings of the New Testament were selected from the numerous Gospels and Epistles then in existence, what became of the books that were rejected by the compilers? Apocryphal texts are non-canonical books, similar to texts of biblical origin written just after Jesus’ crucifixion. Although they are not part of the Scripture, these verses are authentic to their time. These pages contain, among others, stories of Jesus as a child and the other miracles that Mary made. Lovers of biblical literature will find here obscure, but unquestionable, origin texts authentic to the time. Contained here are several remarkable references to the lives of the Saints, the birth of the Virgin, her marriage with Joseph, the nativity of Jesus and the miracles of his infancy, his laboring with Joseph in the carpentry trade, and the actions of his followers. Mesmerizing and artfully written, enjoy these stories that were excluded from Scripture. The Lost Books of the Bible helps expand our knowledge of the early Christians and helps us better appreciate the texts that were chosen.

Boston PI Spenser takes on a new case in this installment in Robert B. Parker's iconic New York Times bestselling series. Carolina Garcia-Ramirez is a rising star in national politics, taking on the establishment with her progressive agenda. Tough, outspoken, and driven, the young congresswoman has ignited a new conversation in Boston about race, poverty, health care, and the environment. Now facing her second campaign, she finds herself not only fighting a tight primary with an old guard challenger but also contending with numerous death threats coming from hundreds of suspects. When her chief of staff reaches out to Spenser for security and help finding the culprits of what he believes to be the most credible threats, Garcia-Ramirez is less than thrilled. Since her first grassroots run, she’s used to the antipathy and intimidation women of color often face when seeking power. To her, it’s all noise. But it turns out an FBI agent disagrees, warning Spenser that Garcia-Ramirez might be in real danger this time. It doesn’t take long for Spenser to cross paths with an extremist group called The Minutemen, led by a wealthy Harvard grad named Bishop Graves. Although Graves is a social media sensation, pushing an agenda of white supremacy and toxic masculinity, he denies he’s behind the attacks. As the primary nears and threats become a deadly plot, it’s up to Spenser, Hawk, and a surprise trusted ally to ensure the congresswoman is safe. This is Spenser doing what he does best, living by a personal code and moral compass that can’t ever be broken.

Book Summary:

Michigan will always be known as the automobile capital of the world, but the Great Lakes State boasts a similarly rich heritage in the development of boat building in America. By the late nineteenth century, Michigan had emerged as the industry’s hub, drawing together the most talented designers, builders, and engine makers to produce some of the fastest and most innovative boats ever created. Within decades, gifted Michigan entrepreneurs like Christopher Columbus Smith, John L. Hacker, and Gar Wood had established some of the nation’s top boat brands and brought the prospect of boat ownership within reach for American consumers from all ranges of income. More than just revolutionizing recreational boating, Michigan boat builders also left their mark on history—from developing the speedy runabouts favored by illicit rum-runners during the Prohibition era to creating the landing craft that carried Allied forces to shores in Europe and the Pacific in WWII. In Making Waves, Scott M. Peters explores this intriguing story of people, processes, and products—of an industry that evolved in Michigan but would change boating across the world.

She thinks she’s found a place, a modest city in the middle of the least populous state in the USA, where she’s relatively safe from the nightmares and finally settled and happy. With such an ugly secret buried deep inside, she realizes that the dream of marriage and a family are not in her future but she has a good friend, Lacey Billings, a job she loves, and a blog that has become surprisingly lucrative so, all in all, she’s content. Until she literally runs into Bowie Whitehawk at a concert at a local venue. Suddenly, the old dreams, unwanted and unexpected, start turning her world upside down. That, however, is the least of her concerns as a new nightmare strikes, repeatedly, like a serial horror show. When she begins to understand that her unique psychic abilities have zeroed in on a serial killer who is stalking a local high school girl, Savanna knows she has to try to save the girl. With little to go on and no one to turn to, she plots to foil the killer’s plan and finds herself caught in her own trap. It's a race against time to save both herself and the girl from the sadistic clutches of a psychopath.

Book Summary:

The Endless Mountain Series is a Christian romantic suspense series with a taste of mystery and a generous helping of faith. In these inspirational stories you will get to know three amazing young women all of whom are first introduced in book one: Stella, Claudia, and Sofie. In book one, Shadowing Stella, Stella meets Jason while she struggles to come to terms with being the pregnant single daughter of the town’s preacher. All the while, she senses someone watching, but shrugs off the feeling as her overactive imagination. Her choice to ignore the danger may have deadly consequences if she’s not careful. In book two, Implicating Claudia, Claudia gets reacquainted with Dawson, a family friend and neighbor. Things go awry when she’s accused of murdering her childhood friend. When the real killer sets his sights on her, she must rely on others, but her stubborn independent streak causes difficulty. Her defiance may put more than one life at risk. In book three, Chasing Sofie, Sofie meets Caleb on the day of her boyfriend Johan’s untimely death. Johan was a professor on campus and Caleb is there to investigate a drug ring. She refuses to accept that Johan’s death was a suicide and begins an investigation of her own. When she uncovers evidence she thinks will lead to his killer, she finds out the hard way that being kept in the dark was far safer.

Book Summary:

If you are only interested in reading about old science fiction movies, then this book is not for you. For this book contains a lot of dull stuff about a man who touched the beating heart of another; stepped into the cold of outer space; witnessed the horrors of Dachau; directed some of the first TV shows; called one of the most famous opera singers of the century “father”; became a war hero; was knighted; had himself arrested for drunk driving; worked with laser beams; jumped out of airplanes; “infiltrated” an American city; broke a 400 year-old cipher; wrestled lions; had the fangs of a leopard at his throat; picked up a prostitute; learned how to kill with a pencil; rode an African elephant; sorted 50,000 beetles; stage-managed ice shows; worked with rockets and the Rockettes. A man who was a spy and counterspy, an actor, stage manager, singer, set designer. He speaks six languages; is a novelist and has been a gourmet chef; helped sail a tall ship and... and—incidentally—wrote or directed a bunch of science fiction movies that many of us have enjoyed! Several of which have become both cult movies and earned a respectable place among mainstream viewers. So perhaps you’ll want to read this book after all.

Book Summary:

This study argues that this previously banned author devoted his entire life to articulating a religion of self-liberation in his autobiographical books, examining his life and work within the context of fringe religious movements that were linked with the avant-garde in New York City and Paris at the first of the 20th century. This study shows how these transatlantic movements – including Gurdjieff, Rosicrucianism, and Theosophy – gave him the hermeneutical devices, not to mention the creative license, to interpret texts and symbols from mainline religions in an iconoclastic manner, ranging from obscure Taoist treatises to the mystical works of Jacob Boehme. The influence of numerous philosophical sources widely circulated in his most critical years – particularly Henri Bergson’s Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932) – also helped him develop a religious view situated between transcendence and immanence, in which self-liberation through the channeled flow of élan vital is the chief objective. Miller’s knowledge of these intellectual currents, along with his involvement with sidestream religious groups, inspired him to meld his religious and literary aims into one perplexing project.

Book Summary:

" No other romantic suspense author gives this combination of intense romance in a big story.” ~~Goodreads reviews She enforces the law and he’s a deadly rule breaker, but risking her heart is her greatest danger when he becomes a protector. In this enemies-to-lovers romance, Ryder Van Dyke is stuck in an Atlanta penitentiary facing the death penalty after being framed for murder. When his last hope for freedom disintegrates, he’s offered a commuted sentence – if he helps the FBI nail a bigger criminal, his father. Only family is allowed inside his father’s personal compound. To prove his innocence or tap his Special Forces skills to disappear if he can’t, Ryder accepts a deal to take an agent in as his wife. FBI analyst Bianca Brady spent two long years substantiating that the head of Van Dyke Enterprises is guilty of funneling weapons to terrorists. Now all she needs is the proof, but she hadn’t expected to marry a criminal who hates her. Her team gathered the evidence to put Ryder in prison. Bianca’s the last person Ryder will trust, but he has to accept the FBI offer or live forever in a cage. The unlikely pair must navigate a minefield of deadly secrets and attacks as well as sizzling chemistry. When Bianca becomes a hired killer’s next target, Ryder is forced to make a choice - give up his freedom or risk the life of the woman who’s stolen his heart. "It seems with each book, this series gets better... one of the best I have read this year." ~~Barb, The Reading Cafe “Be sure to take a deep breath before you dive into a Slye Temp novel - prepare for shocks, thrills and above all a fantastic read you won't want to ever end.” ~~ Fresh Fiction
