‘Stranded’ by Alex Kava – This is a Maggie O’Dell novel. Maggie O’Dell is an FBI special agent with her partner Tully and in this novel they discover the remains of a young woman in a highway ditch. The only clue is a map leading them to the spot where they’ll find the madman’s next victim. As the body count rises, Maggie must race against the clock to unmask the monster terrorizing America’s highways.
‘The Kill Switch’ by James Rollins – This is a Tucker Wayne Novel featuring Captain Tucker Wayne and his military dog Kane from the pages of Sigma Force for their first solo adventure. The mission seems simple enough: extract a pharmaceutical magnate from Russian soil, a volatile man who holds the secret to a deadly bioweapon. But nothing is as it appears to be. A good read.
‘Eye of the Storm’ by Rob Pobi – This is his first debut thriller and I can’t wait until he writes another. Not only is a massive hurricane coming to the Eastern Seaboard but after FBI consultant Jake Cole returns to Montauk to care for his father, another malevolent force descends on the community—a monstrous serial killer. This brutal double homicide teaches Jake that even though he has forgotten about the past, it has not yet forgotten about him.
‘The Lincoln Myth’ by Steve Berry – This was a great read, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. In September 1861 a shocking secret passed down from president to president comes to rest in the hands of Abraham Lincoln. And as the first bloody clashes of the Civil War unfold, Lincoln alone must decide how best to use this volatile knowledge: save thousands of American lives, or keep the young nation from being torn apart forever? The present: In Utah, the fabled remains of Mormon pioneers whose nineteenth-century expedition across the desert met with a murderous end have been uncovered. In Washington, D.C., the official investigation of an international entrepreneur, an elder in the Mormon church, has sparked a political battle between the White House and a powerful United States senator. In comes Cotton Malone risking life, liberty, and his greatest love in a race for the truth about Abraham Lincoln while the fate of the United States of America hangs in the balance.
‘Hard Choices’ by Hillary Rodham Clinton – This is her story, an inside account of the crises, choices, and challenges she faced during her four years as America’s 67th Secretary of State, and how those experiences driver her view of the future.
