Liza, trying to protect her mother, threatened Ted with her father's gun. Instead of shooting Ted, Liza accidently kills her mother. That night began Liza's nightmare. Although deemed an accidental shooting, Liza had to endure the cruel jokes of "Lizzie Borden" because of the name similarities.
Liza moves away to adoptive parents who change her name to Celia in attempt to erase her past. But really As you can guess, Celia gets married and by a freak of circumstances of a surprise gift by her husband, buys her childhood house where the shooting occurred. This obviously distresses Celia as her husband does not know about her past. Then things happen to let Celia know that someone in town recognizes her and is setting out to torture her.
The book is very good in twisting the story around so it keeps you guessing on what happens next all the way to the end. Title : Where Are the Children? The first suspense novel Clark ever wrote.

Title : Jonathan Strange and Mr. Though sometimes dark, this book is exciting, suspenseful, and witty. Martin's Copyright : Reviewer : Nancy Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : First time novelist Cleland does a creditable job with antiques dealer Josie Prescott, who lost her job in the auction-house scandal but has gone on to create a successful business in New Hampshire.
Everything is going well for Josie until she finds herself the chief suspect in the murder of an elderly potential client who, it turns out, had paintings stolen during the Nazi regime. A little heavy on the advice from Josie's deceased parents, and not quite enough detail about antiques, but a good read nevertheless. I'll look forward to Cleland's next. She is thrilled with the possible contract for the contents of a huge old house full of beautiful and valuable antiques. But when she goes to sign the final contract, no one answers the door.
This turns out to be least of Josies' problems as she learns that the owner is dead -murdered- and Josies' is the last name is his appointment book. The police chief, whom Josie has noticed is a superbly eligible bachelor, considers her the prime suspect, so Josie feels she must somehow solve the crime and maybe, just maybe, even manage to secure the auction contract after all. Then, of course, there's also the attraction to the police chief. All in all, this is a great first novel with interesting characters, well drawn plot and lots of antique description.
You'll enjoy it, especially if you like antiques. Andrew Clements. This is an encouraging story of a boy with a most difficult language-arts teacher and his idea to rename the word "pen" to "frindle". The wood catches on with the students and eventually travels throughout the entire country. An elementary school librarian recommended this book to me and I'm so glad she did.
This entertaining book continues with Bobby and his family searching to find out why. In the ensuing time he meets a blind teenage girl. They both struggle to overcome their respective conditions. Written in the first person, with humor, the story is well done and appeals to more than just its teenage audience. Meetings with various "donors" are humorous, but the entire story is somewhat mindless and predictable. Dan Mercer is on his way to help a teenage girl in trouble when he walks into the glare of television lights and his life is forever changed. Wendy Tynes is the TV reporter who has made a name for herself by exposing pedophiles and who thinks Dan is no different from any of the others she has nailed.
This case is not the same, though, and with heart-pounding speed Coben races through twists as more people are caught in the maze of murder and retaliation. Absolutely fantastic! Following the suicide of a teenage boy, Mike and Tia Baye are worried about their son Their discoveries lead them into a new culture of drugs and murder and the fear that they will be too late to save their son. Although not quite as tightly-written as Tell no One or Gone For Good, Coben paints a fairly convincing picture of the potential for terror in today's tech-driven world.
For years I've groused about his Myron Bolitar series while praising his stand alone novels. But, at least with this entry, he's made a convert of me. Bolitar gets a call from a woman with whom he shared a passionate escape years ago. She's in France and says only: "Come to Paris. A really terrific read! Too many pointless twists and stereotypical characters and way too much superhero stuff by Myron. It's time to retire Bolitar for good and for Coben to get back to the stuff he does well. When a couple goes away on their annual anniversary trip only one of them comes home.
Great read! Now, as a county prosecutor, Paul is asked by police to identify another body And if Gil survived, what of his sister? In what may be his best book since Tell No One, Coben races through a riveting series of seemingly unconnected events to a wrenching conclusion. The good news is: if up til now you've based your life philosophy on fortune cookies and the horoscope in the morning paper, this is for you. A bunch of hokey, "wishing will make it so" pop-psych mumbo-jumbo. The bad news is: if you want a thoughtful, well-written book about life's challenges and mysteries, this book is a bunch of hokey, "wishing will make it so" pop-psych mumbo-jumbo.
A poor shepherd boy travels from Spain to Egypt while following the quest for his "personal legend," encountering mystical and shallow characters on the way who give him advice like "The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by unhappiness, envy, and jealousy. To realize one's destiny is a person's only real obligation. All things are one. What a waste of time. The characters sotires were all intertwined with the main character, Nicky who had converted his parent's meat shop into a mental wellness center.
There are only a few people who visit his center and when an elderly lady he has been consulting is found dead after an overdose of sleeping pills, Nicky is accused of not giving her adequate psychological help. Each character in this novel deals with many problems and is just as confused as the next. There is also little resolution at the end of the story. Of course there is the contrived, silly happy ending in which all Jane's problems are solved, but this book is a definite pass.
Nancy A. She feeds off others of her kind instead of humans. This book has been in and out-of-print since its release in Luckily, for all those who enjoy the vampire genre, the compete collection of Sonja Blue novels are back in print.
What's Your Mood?
Here it is; reissued in January This is the story of Skinner Cade, a loner from Chotaw County, Arkansas, who sets out on a journey of self-discovery but finds himself hooking up with a rock band that leaves a path of mayhem, violence and madness wherever they go. At least they understand the thrill of the hunt and the taste of blood that has haunted Skinner throughout his life. Collins is best known for her Sonja Blue vampire tales, but Wild Blood and her voodoo tale, The Tempter have always been my favorite. Couldn't finish it, and I've read some real dogs. Allison Jenson is six years old when she sees her eight-year-old best friend abducted.
Her family and her community refuse to discuss this tragedy with her and she grows up obsessed with finding the truth, blocked at every step by the rigid, patriarchal culture in which she lives. A dark, convincing story of faith shattered by man and one woman's struggle to survive. A must read. Jessica Conant Park and Susan Conant.
The main character, Chloe Carter, is a college student whose blind date from an Internet dating service is murdered during their first meeting. Then she dates the main suspect, chef Josh. The first half of the book is hilarious; I laughed out loud. The second half became a bit more predictable and run-of-the-mill, losing that fabulous humor. Susan Conant was never this funny in her own wonderful dog mystery series, so I think the great humor comes from her daughter's writing.
I look forward to the next book and hope to see that humor throughout the next time. These gals could definitely give Evanovich a run for her money if the humor makes a more consistent appearance in their future novels. The unofficial sleuth, Holly Winter, is a writer of dog articles who shows Alaskan malamutes in competition. Her dogs are real dogs and act like it: they misbehave, even though they are well trained. Plus I learned tons about the dog show world. Mickey is forced out of his hiatus from practicing law when fellow lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, leaving his practice to Haller.
Among the cases is that of Walter Elliot, accused of killing his wife and her lover Was Vincent's murder connected to this case? And is Haller in the killer's sights? Although there are a few too many obvious red herrings for this to be a great read, it's still enjoyable. The confessed murderer is leading him and other officers to the burial site when everything goes wrong and Harry has to deal with the possibility that his partner, Kiz, might die Connelly's Bosch series continues to be convincing and tightly-written, and this entry is one of his best.
It's just a little too pat with the "should a lawyer sell his soul" question. He finds himself not only in a race to find the killer, but also in a battle against the FBI and his former girlfriend, agent Rachel Walling, who have been tracking a terrorist plot to use the radioactive material. A roller coaster read with a cliffhanger ending; Connelly has written a book with a real adrenaline rush! They date, marry, work and care a great deal for each others good and bad times. A great mix of personalities and situations keep the reader entranced till the very end.
Conroy always writes a great story, ultimately about forgiveness. Dawn Cook. Life gets more interesting as enemies make their moves, and even friends can be more than they seem. This story did make me laugh occasionally, but overall it was not well done. The author kept throwing in odd, jarring elements. Susan Cooper. Soon they are on the search for the Grail. The five books that make up the sequence see the children battle between the Dark and the Light in a world full of Arthurian and Celtic mystical settings. Ages 12 and up. I highly recommend it.
Cornwell muddles along without even the Scarpetta angst in this novella, which wouldn't have had a chance at being published without her name on it. One word: Blech. Putnam's Sons Copyright : Reviewer : Nancy Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : One of the things you'll notice right away in this book is that Cornwell now writes in the third, rather than the first, person The novel, of course, begins with Kay's trademark angst about Benton, Marino and Lucy and throws in a convoluted, unsatisfying series of murders with a predictable murderer.
And, please, after all these years together, can't Kay and Benton learn to relate to each other as adults rather than as insecure adolescents? Grow up, Kay Write yourself a prescription for Zoloft; you'll feel much better. As for me, I'm done. A cereal box is a better read. Putnam's Sons Copyright : Reviewer : Patty Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : I typically would rate a Patricia Cornwell book a 4 or 5, but unfortunately, I can't with any good conscience rate this any higher than a 3.
As much as I love the Kay Scarpetta series, I'm beginning to wonder if this series should just end. The story lines are not as strong and captivating as they used to be.
Chapter Five - Cougars and Humans
The case they are working on is interesting but once she throws in the character's personal issues, it just muddles up the story. For the first time ever, I actually put this book aside to read another one and then came back to it. Putnam's Sons Copyright : Reviewer : Nancy Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : The question is, who is behind Gotham Gotcha, and who is putting Scarpetta's most personal information on the smarmy internet gossip site? Further, could this site be connected to a rash of murders, or to the paranoid fantasies of the main suspect?
When Cornwell focuses on crime and forensics she's great, but she suffers from the same syndrome that James Patterson does: they write badly and stiltingly about relationships, while insisting on including way too much awkward nuance and far-fetched dialogue in their novels, a habit that bulks up the pages but slows down the plot. Wait for paperback. The possible suspect, the victim's boyfriend, requests Scarpetta specifically to conduct the examination.
While everyone suspects his guilt, Kay investigates the case and begins to have doubts about his guilt. All the while, someone with a grudge against Scarpetta, publishes some very personal about her on a trashy Internet website. While pretty decent, the story runs a little slow at times and a few parts seem unnecessary to the storyline. Is she being stalked by a photographer or a deranged fan? The D. Coulter includes interesting soap opera trivia between chapters. The situations in Coupland books sometimes seem far-fetched, frequently absurd yet he always seems to be able to comment on the human condition in a way few contemporary authors can.
No matter which Coupland book you grab, most likely you will find at least one line to quote that accurately reflects where you find yourself in life. Cowman; edited by James Reimann. I recommend the "Updated Edition in Today's Language" edited by James Reimann, who did an excellent job in making this classic clearer and more understandable for the modern reader.
The isbn for the edition I have is Get one for yourself and one to give away. Harvey Cox. Cox was brought on board to teach a course examining the role Jesus of Nazareth had as rabbi regarding moral responsibility. This book is his memoir reflecting on twenty years of teaching this extremely effective and always packed class set in a theater forum.
The book is informative, contemporary, and challenges readers to consider how ethics and morality is developed. Wonderful descriptions of ocean life add to this mysterious magical story. His investigation leads him to a sleazy city official, a deputy police chief and a cover-up Crais continues to keep us turning pages in this solid entry in the series.
In this, the second in the Joe Pike series, Crais has the deadly Pike hunting the home-invasion gang that killed his friend and former mercenary. When it becomes evident that this is no low-level drug-addled group, Pike finds himself up against the powerful Russian mob in a thriller that races its way through deceit and double-cross and has Pike calling in all his favors as he tracks a killer who is almost as lethal as he.
Whether he features Joe Pike or his business partner Elvis Cole, Crais almost always nails it…this one is no exception. Joe Pike series: Watchman First Rule. I was hoping for something great with this one and didn't get it, but it's worth a read. As Pike and Elvis Cole race to find her would-be assassin, they find themselves caught up in a world of international greed and murder.
One of the best Crais books, this is a must-read. Crichton takes his readers on a slippery slope of the dangers of genetically modifying nature and mixing our genes with other organisms. I found his information questionable, and his story line did not come together in the end. There were loose ties that needed to be finished, closure needed on the many characters he introduced, and further explanation of just what was his conclusion with all of this. Crowther discovered this for herself in a very personal way and sought to give girls another outlet by fictionalizing parts of her own struggle with PCOS.
Martins Copyright : Reviewer : Carol Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : Cruise and Mayer have created a complex plot of romance, sex, mob members and government agents. Filled with a ridiculous number of dead bodies and improbable scenarios, this one however is funny and engaging. The book is a good blend of humor, suspense, action, and a touch of romance. Lucy Armstrong, a commercial director hired to complete the last four days of an action movie shoot, stumbles into a money-laundering scheme on the set.
Elaine Cunningham. She starts her own P. The books read like police suspense stories more than fantasy stories. Gwen may be a member of the Fae race but barely realizes this fact and the rest of the world within the novels are a mirror of our own world. Although the story is classified as fantasy because Gwen finds out she is Fae toward the end of the book, it reads like a suspense police thriller. The book sets up storylines for future books in the series. Martin's Press Copyright : Reviewer : Nancy Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : Eighty-six-year-old Hennie Comfort has lived in Middle Swan, Colorado, since just after the Civil War and has forged a life in the mining town, in a house with a weathered sign in the front yard offering prayers for sale.
When lonely young Nit Spindle hands Hennie her last nickel for a prayer, their friendship begins and, through stories shared over quilts and coffee, the two women share their lives. What a wonderful read! Raised in the safety and shelter of her small farming town, Rennie is unprepared for the hatred she sees in her neighbors and tells her story with wry, poignant observation. When a young girl is raped and murdered suspicion centered on the Japanese splits the town. In addition to memorable characters author Dallas again emphasizes the need for women to create strong emotional networks.
Shirley Damsgaard. Trying to flee her personal demons, Ophelia moves to small town Summerset, Iowa to be close to Abby and the two of them find themselves in the middle of murder and mystery. Ophelia again stumbles upon a dead body in the small town of Summerset, Iowa. A quick read murder mystery where the secondary characters, at times, seem more interesting than the lead character. The series makes you wonder if living in a quiet, small town might be more dangerous than city life.
It seems the author is more interested in having these charming psychic ladies embrace their witch heritage than telling a good story. I actually forgot the story was about finding her. Witches, motorcycle gangs, corrupt cops, and ghosts fill this installment with wit and suspense. As in all the adventures of these amateur sleuths, the generational witches grow in their understanding of the craft as well as their skills at working with the authorities to solve crime.
The mysteries in this series are captivating and the characters have grown endearing to the point that I look forward to brewing a little tea for their visit. Both have paranormal abilities but Ophelia is a too uptight to let her skills flourish. What will get me to read the next book in the series is her delightful grandmother, Abby. Another small town mystery where murder and conspiracy shakes up the normally tranquil world of Summerset, Iowa.
Now Pepper finds herself in the middle of a huge media frenzy at the cemetery and working to debunk the center of all that attention. Funny, fast and full of heart, this second book in the Pepper Martin Mystery series is a delight. She takes a job as a historic tour guide in a legendary cemetery. After a head injury from landing on a headstone, Pepper finds she is able to communicate with the dead in need of help, and slowly becomes a reluctant sleuth solving crimes long gone cold.
This first murder mystery in the Pepper Martin Mystery series is funny, charming and full of life. The fact that the story takes place in Cleveland, Ohio made it even more delightful for this ex-Clevelander. In this third Pepper Martin Mystery series. Pepper finds herself trying to find out who is channeling a 's rock icon that died of an overdose and threatening the remaining aging members of his band.
As the mystery unravels, Pepper finds that she needs to come to terms with her own past before she can truly take a chance at getting involved with the living. She realizes her life is no different than these aging rockers and their groupies, who failed to move forward in their lives when the party was over.
These mysteries are smart, equally mixing humor and suspense, and are just fun to read. When loathsome editor Theodore Ratnoff is murdered, no one is upset by his death well, almost no one , but when the murders don't stop there the entire staff gets pretty edgy. And when reporter Jude Hurley, stymied at every turn in his attempt to write the story, is targeted by the killer he only becomes more determined to find the truth.
A nicely ironic, well-crafted book. Mary-Janice Davidson. They need to be longer or Davidson needs to write faster. A word of warning, if you are a devoted fan - the first three stories were originally published in e-book format. The fourth in this series and final tale is new and features George the Fiend, so Betsy and gang are all included!
Watch for another "Gorgeous" book in May and "Undead" series. This is a collection of 4 short stories with characters from her other novels. You can enjoy these without having read her other books. Each one is a different way for the characters to fall in love. Jenny Branch helps Kevin Stone go back undercover into the Snakepit to disrupt their evil plans. It's the author's typical humorous romp with romance. She has just turned fourteen and discovered a secret that her parents have kept from her too long - she is a weredragon like her father and grandfather.
The authors have penned a humorous, yet realistic look of her trials as she tries to cope with her large lizard-like body, its new powers, and the betrayal she feels about her parents' secrets. She isn't given too much time to adjust before she must try her new wings and help her mother find her father before he is killed. This is a book that all ages can enjoy. She learns that the world is a much stranger place than she ever thought it was. Move over, "teenage werewolf," here comes "I was a teenage weredragon.
I definitely look forward to reading more of Jennifer's adventures. She's got the attitude, AND she breathes fire! Look out, world, this sassy shapeshifter is just getting started! Full of were-dragons, were-spiders and warriors sans the horror normally found in books of this genre. Jennifer and friends are dealing with normal adolescent problems common among most teens. Throw in some very unique anthropomorphic changes and you wonder just how they hold it together. The story focuses on maintaining friendships regardless of the dramatic personal differences that try to tear this group apart.
Also, it is great to see Jennifer find common ground between her diverse parents. Anyone, regardless of age, who appreciates a good lycanthrope story, will enjoy these books. At first I found the somewhat soap-opera-ish plot to be a bit much even for a fantasy, but once I accepted the drama I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This series is marketed for teens but is a good read for adults as well. Jennifer is being trained in her mother's heritage and struggling with friend and family relationships, while trying to avoid being killed. Who says teenagers have it easy?! Especially half-weredragon teenagers facing a lot of secrets. I look forward to the third book! A very interesting short story collection centered around a town that is a sanctuary for magical and supernatural beings who live there along with regular humans.
This amusing romance develops as Dr. Another fun read that makes you wish the next one comes soon! But that's okay, since she has made friends with Al who turns out to be the reigning king of Alaska and matchmaking for his son. The rest of this alternative reality is a hilarious chronicle of the romance between Christina and Prince David, their marriage, and her adjustment to life as a Princess.
This book is the first in a series and like her "Undead" novels, it is filled with the author's usual quirky, comical yet realistic characters and their penguins. The adventures of Jennifer and her growing circle of unlikely friends will entertain any one who loves a witty, fast-pasted adventure involving unusual lycanthropes. This new entry is light on the typical romance themes thanks God and more of a mystery than any of her other books.
However, at times the writing is choppy most likely because she avoids her familiar first person narrative and appears to have some difficulty switching storytelling between multiple characters. Still, Davidson makes me laugh and as long as she writes about paranormal protagonists, I will look forward to meeting her quirky, comical characters. The series is always entertaining and an extremely quick read, but never worth the price of a hardback.
Cougar: The American Lion, A Book from Mountain Lion Foundation
The continuing adventures of the new Queen of the vampires as she deals with European royalty. Wasn't as funny as some of the other books, but still good. A light humorous summer read with all new adventures for everyone living with the Queen as she gets ready for her wedding and her first birthday since becoming the Queen. Funny, enjoyable characters getting into really silly and ridiculous predicaments.
A true joy to read. Laugh-out-loud funny. Cute, but a little heavy on the sex scenes with fangs. Title : Undead and They are short, quick stories and can be found in the Romance section of any bookstore. Luckily, the first four novels now appear in a single volume entitled Betsy the Vampire Queen Best to read in order. This time she focuses on werewolves and their romantic yet difficult interactions with humans.
The rest of the Wyndham werewolves tales are shorts in omnibus collections. Sarah Zacharias Davis. Anyone planning on getting married or those already married would benefit from reading it, although it is all from a woman's point of view so it will probably hold more appeal for women to pick up. The author is the daughter of Ravi Zacharias, in case you are familiar with his books. This book is put together from interviews with several anonymous Christian women. Each chapter is a different woman's voice candidly expressing what she has struggled with and learned in her own marriage.
The only thing I really didn't care for was one of the last chapters in which a woman justified what sounded to me like an unjustifiable divorce. Of course, I don't have the full story to know for sure, and one of the things she complains about are how hard Christians frequently are on those who are going through the pain of divorce. I better think about that one. So even though I don't agree with her viewpoints on this issue, the book is still good; the point of the book is not to necessarily find agreement with everything you read, but to stir up discussion in groups so people can learn from listening to other perspectives.
Sallie Day. At the second- or third-rate beach resort where they vacation every year, the Singleton family struggles with their younger daughter's illness, their older daughter's sad search for love, and their parents' distance. Their mother, Ruth, wants nothing more than a home with status, while their father, Jack, is obsessed with the letter he carries from the woman he loved during the war. Set in , this is not a nostalgic book, but one painted in sorry shades of gray A tough look at an unloving family.
Emma and Steven Feldman, she a lawyer, he a social worker, are planning a quiet weekend at their isolated getaway place when two armed gunmen storm the house. Are their murders connected to a high-profile case Emma was working on or to something else altogether? Can Brynn McKenzie find out in time to save herself and her family from the killers? A high octane read; a great breakout from the Lincoln Rhyme series. Further, he can manipulate computer data to set up his own alibis and to impede his pursuers. This, the eighth in the Lincoln Rhyme series, is an absolutely terrifying look at just how vulnerable we all are in an age of cyber data, and one of Deaver's best books ever!
When two murders occur on the same night, Rhyme calls Amelia Sachs away from her primary investigation to hunt down the "Watchmaker" who has left clocks at his crime scenes; but all, of course, is not as it seems. Why would such a meticulous killer make huge mistakes that allow his next victims to escape?
Is Sachs dealing with a serial killer, corrupt cops, or something larger and more sinister? A really gripping read! Finding himself the victim of a double-cross, Schumann must choose between saving himself and completing his mission. Years later, the family disbanded and its leader in prison, she has been spirited away by her aunt and uncle and kept safe Led by FBI agent Kathryn Dance, law enforcement agents race to find him as he pursues Teresa and the former members of his "family".
Although this lacks the polish of Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme novels, it still moves well and provides a few surprises. From the first, in which a wife mourns her husband, through the interesting story featuring Lincoln Rhyme and company, to the last in which a father pursues his daughter's stalker, Deaver continues to enhance his reputation as a master of plot twists and startling endings. If you've enjoyed his suspense novels, as I have, give this a try. Copyright : Reviewer : Gayle Book Rating : Reviewer Comments : A small, isolated town and a monastery hidden in the mountains in Colorado are the settings for this suspenseful religious thriller.
A number of orphans from all over the world have been taken to the monastery and are being raised, isolated from all societal influences, as part of a theological experiment into the nature of good and evil. However, the story of these philosophical geniuses is somewhat sophomoric in delivery, reminiscent of a Disney-styled Boys from Brazil.
The havoc these children cause on the nearby town demonstrates more about what self-indulged children can do than it demonstrates the nature of good and evil in humanity. Grey has lost his druidic powers, finding himself ousted from the Guild, a druid policing force over fey activities. He is unemployed and relies on his disability checks and some meager consulting fees from the human police. Just like any person of power who loses their status that defines their lives, Grey has to rethink his worth, his friendships and his abilities while he tries to save the world and stop a serial killer who targets fey prostitutes.
The author has created a rich tale involving fairies, elves, trolls, druids, and flits that mingle with human politics and history. If you like the Harry Dresden series and John Taylor series , you will welcome the adventures of Conner Grey to this intensely rich dark urban genre. Ten years after John Whitman Sutter's wife killed her lover, and ten years following their divorce, Sutter returns to his old stomping grounds on Long Island's Gold Coast where he spends the better or worse part of almost pages mouthing what I think is supposed to be amusing repartee.
Unfortunately it isn't. At all. Or entertaining, or well-written or engaging. For an author who can usually be counted on to turn in a must-read, DeMille has, this time, given us a mustn't-read. The main action begins in the summer of ; the tension builds not only as the plot develops, but as we inevitably approach September and the event none of the characters knows is coming. Masterfully and tightly written, this is one of Demille's best! One of my big, big favorites. Be aware that is begins with a very explicit sex scene which is critical to the plot.
Fortunately that's the only such scene. Can a group of powerful Americans succeed in their plot to destroy much of the Middle East by sacrificing millions of American lives? And just how far from reality might this scenario be in a paranoid world fearful of another attack on our shores? This compelling, chilling book is being released on Tuesday, November 7.
