ON IMMUNITY by Eula Biss
National Book Critics Circle Award-winner Biss’s examination of and ultimately, support for vaccines is an October 2014 Indie Next pick, a BEA Librarians “Shout ‘n Share” pick, has three outstanding starred reviews, and just recently was announced as a finalist for the inaugural Kirkus Prize for nonfiction!
THE ASSASSINATION OF MARGARET THATCHER by Hilary Mantel
Man Booker Prize winner Mantel’s latest is a brilliant collection of contemporary short stories (you can even read one in its entirety here!). “The stories in Mantel’s new collection reflect her interest in human frailty and assaults of all kinds, from the most intimate to those by or against the state.”
— Publishers Weekly
THE PERFECT WITNESS by Iris Johansen
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Johansen comes an explosive new thriller about a woman with the ability to read people’s memories who is living safely in Witness Protection—until her cover is blown. “This page-turner builds to a breathless conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly
When we ran a giveaway for copies of EVE back in February the response was overwhelming. This leads me to believe that you lot will be interested in hearing about the second book in Iris Johansen's current Eve Duncan trilogy, QUINN. This trilogy finally discloses the long-awaited details of Eve's daughter's murder.
As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how deadly it can be. When he first met Eve Duncan, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose life would be defined by her dual desires to bring home her missing daughter and discover the truth behind her disappearance---no matter how devastating. With the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, they make a shocking discovery that sheds new light on young Bonnie’s abduction and puts Quinn squarely in the crosshairs of danger. Eve’s first love, John Gallo, a soldier supposedly killed in the line of duty, is very much alive---and very much a threat.
Publishers Weekly gave QUINN a starred review and says, "As Eve seeks relentlessly to find closure in Bonnie's disappearance, she deliberately puts herself in harm's way to lure the killer connected with the missing children out in the open. Suspense kicks into high gear as the killer strikes very close to Eve. As the novel fast forwards to a present-day search for another killer, the pulse-pounding pace will leave readers breathlessly anticipating the final installment."
Library Journal calls QUINN "suspensful," "entertaining," and "an integral read for fans of Johansen’s Eve Duncan series."
Congrats to the winners of the Iris Johansen galley giveaway! All the lucky librarians have been contacted and their copies of EVE are in the mail.
