BESTSELLERS

MOVING TARGET by J.A. Jance

VERDICT: SKIP IT
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: Feb. 18, 2014
Dizzying changes of locale and point of view, along with large helpings of sentimentality, weaken Ali's latest. If only Jance had focused on one plot instead of sending her characters all over creation in pursuit of two separate mysteries. Read full book review >

CONCEALED IN DEATH by J.D. Robb

VERDICT: BORROW IT
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 25, 2014
More heartfelt than most of Eve's futuristic adventures (Thankless in Death, 2013, etc.) but less suspenseful, since Eve decides pretty early on, based on little more than a hunch, who the killer is, and she turns out—lo and behold—to be right. Read full book review >

THE TRIPLE PACKAGE by Amy Chua
CURRENT AFFAIRS

Libba Bray
author of LAIR OF DREAMS
August 25, 2015

In Lair of Dreams, the second installment of Libba Bray’s bestselling young adult Diviners series, after a supernatural showdown with a serial killer, Evie O'Neill has outed herself as a Diviner. Now that the world knows of her ability to "read" objects, and therefore, read the past, she has become a media darling, earning the title "America's Sweetheart Seer." But not everyone is so accepting of the Diviners' abilities....Meanwhile, mysterious deaths have been turning up in the city, victims of an unknown sleeping sickness. Can the Diviners descend into the dreamworld and catch a killer? “Weaving together a chilling mystery with a truly elusive solution, several poignant love stories, agonizing injustice, terrifyingly monstrous dreams, and even a cameo by legendary psychiatrist Carl Jung, this installment wraps enough up to satisfy but clearly sets the stage for more,” our reviewer writes in a rare starred review. “How will readers stand the wait?” View video >
