When private detective Dana Cutler is hired to follow college student Charlotte Walsh, she never imagines the trail will lead to the White House. But the morning after Walsh’s clandestine meeting with Christopher Farrington, President of the United States, the pretty young coed is dead – the latest victim, apparently, of a fiend dubbed “the D.C. Ripper.”

A junior associate in an Oregon law firm, Brad Miller is stunned by the death row revelations of convicted serial killer Clarence Little. Though Little accepts responsibility for a string of gruesome murders, he swears he was framed for one of them: the death of a teenaged babysitter who worked for then-governor Farrington.

Suddenly nowhere in America is safe for a small-time private eye and a fledgling lawyer who possess terrifying evidence that suggests the unthinkable: that someone at the very highest level of government, perhaps the president himself, is a cold and brutal killer.

With rich, unique characters, 1929 is the first in an epic trilogy centered in the Great Depression. 1929 follows three couples through the economic collapse of 1929 and their struggles to adjust to a sudden and violent shift in lifestyle.

This mammoth novel will take readers to a dark time in American history. A time when so many lost so much and the bonds of love and friendship were the only things that held the fabric of life together. While some say history is now repeating itself with our current economic downturn, 1929 provides hours of entertainment and escape while giving readers a chance to connect and relate to the characters struggles of love, loss and finding hope.

American Legends: The Life of General George Patton profiles the amazing life and career of the American war hero, while also examining his personality and analyzing his lasting legacy. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Patton like you never have before, in no time at all.


[Hot Deal] A Will & A Way – Save 72%

A Will & A WayA Will & A Way
by Nora Roberts

It was worse than winning the lottery – much worse. This bequest might mean more money, but the strings attached had Pandora McVie tied up in knots. Respecting Uncle Jolley’s last wishes meant spending time isolated in the Catskills with Michael Donahue, her least favorite – though best looking – distant relative and co-beneficiary.

Living with a carrottopped termagant wasn’t Michael’s idea of a good time, either, but he realized they were stuck. Jolley was a matchmaker to the end – and apparently for some time beyond. What could happen in six months? Michael answered that one himself: almost anything.

The Art of Racing in the RainThe Art of Racing in the Rain
by Garth Stein

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope – a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life… as only a dog could tell it.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn’t simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully navigate all of life’s ordeals.

On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through. In the end, despite what he sees as his own limitations, Enzo comes through heroically to preserve the Swift family, holding in his heart the dream that Denny will become a racing champion with Zoë at his side.

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life… as only a dog could tell it.
