NEW FICTION

The White Princess, by Phillippa Gregory. As the news of the battle of Bosworth is brought to Princess Elizabeth of York, who will learn not only which rival house has triumphed, Tudor or York, but also which suitor she must marry: Richard lll her lover, or Henry Tudor her enemy. When Henry defeats Richard against all odds, Elizabeth must marry the man who murdered her lover in battle, and create a new royal family for him and his ambitious mother: Margaret Beaufort, The Red Queen. But, while the new monarchy can win, it cannot, it seems, hold power in an England which remembers the House of York with love. Somewhere outside England, a prince from the house of York is waiting to invade and re-claim the throne for the house of York . Henry turns to his wife to advise him, all the time knowing that her loyalties must be divided. When the young man who would be king finally leads his army and invades England, it is for Elizabeth to decide whether she recognizes him as her brother and a claimant to the throne, or denies him in favor of the husband she is coming to love….

UNLEASHED : An Andy Carpenter Mystery, by David Rosenfelt.  Andy Carpenter’s accountant, Sam Willis, is stunned to receive a phone call out of the blue from Barry Price, a high school friend he hasn’t spoken to in years, pleading for help with something too frightening to discuss on the phone. Barry  needs Sam’s financial acumen and lawyer Andy Carpenter’s legal expertise- and he needs them immediately. But when Sam almost runs over an injured dog lying in the road on the way to Barry’s house, he can’t drive off without waiting for help to arrive. By the time Sam makes it, Barry’s already taken off on a plane headed who-knows-where. Then they learn that Barry’s plane has crashed, and they come to the realization that Sam was also supposed to have been killed on that plane. Barry was in far more serious trouble than either of them knew, and for Sam and Andy, the trouble is only beginning…..

Light of the World : A Dave Robicheaux Novel, by James Lee Burke. Sadist and serial killer, Asa Surrette narrowly escaped the death penalty for the string of heinous murders he committed while capital punishment was outlawed in Kansas. But following a series of damning articles written by Dave Robicheuax’s daughter Alafair about possible other crimes committed by Surette, the killer escapes from a prison transport van and heads to Montana, where an unsuspecting Dave happens to have gone on vacation. When a series of suspicious events leads them to believe their lives and the lives of their families are in danger. A venomous presence lurks in the caves and hills, intent on destroying innocent lives. First, Alafair is nearly killed by an arrow, then Celeste’s daughter, Gretchen Horowitz, runs afoul of a local cop, with dire consequences. Next, Alafair thinks she sees a familiar face following her around town—-but how could convicted Asa Surette be loose on the streets of Montana? Instead of simply absorbing threats and punishment, however, the good guys dish them out with a single-minded intensity that comes back to haunt them during the many reflective moments when they wonder what really separates them from the bad guys after all….
