NEW NON-FICTION

Sins of the Flesh, by Colleen McCullough. August 1969, police Captain Carmine Delmonico is away on vacation. Back at home in the sleepy college town of Holloman, Connecticut, first one, then two anonymous male corpses turn up emaciated and emasculated. After connecting the victims to four other bodies, Sergeant Delia Carstairs and Lieutenant Abe Goldberg realize Holloman has a psychopathic killer on the loose. When another vicious murder rocks Holloman, Carmine realizes that two killers are at large with completely different modus operandi. Like Delia, he finds this case too close to home when he barely escapes being next on the body count. Suddenly the summer isn’t so sleepy anymore!….

A Christmas Hope, by Anne Perry. Claudine Burroughs dreads the holiday season for forcing her to face how empty her life has become. She no longer expects closeness with her coldly ambitious husband, and their circle of wealthy , status-minded friends. The only time she is remotely happy is when she volunteers at a woman’s clinic, against her husbands wishes. At a yuletide gala she meets the charming poet Dai Treggaron and finds her spirit lifted, but scarcely and hour later, Dai is enmeshed in a nightmare, accused of killing a young streetwalker who had been smuggled into the party. It seems that hypocritical London society would rather send an innocent poet to the gallows than expose the shocking truth about one of their own. A celebration of courage, faith, and love for all seasons….

White Fire, by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protegee, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who, with brutal precision, begins burning multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear. Her finding is so astonishing that it, even more than the arsonist, threatens the resorts very existence. Now with the ski resort snowed in and under savage attack, and Corrie’s life suddenly in grave danger, Pendergast must solve the enigma of the past before the town of the present goes up in flames….

A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge quickly develops a clinical interest in his house guest. Stella had been working as a nurse’s aide near the front, but she couldn’t remember anything prior to four months earlier when she was found wounded on a French battlefield. Set against the backdrop of World War 1, that destroyed an entire generation, that takes us from London to America and back again….

The First Phone Call from Heaven, by Mitch Albom. One autumn day, in the small northern town of Coldwater, Michigan, the phones begin ringing. The people calling are all deceased. They talk about heaven. They say they are safe and happy. Each call is greeted differently, some with relief, some with love, some with religious zeal, some with fear. As the mysterious phone calls become more frequent, outsiders begin flocking from all over the world to be part of the blessing, changing the small town indelibly, and turning local citizens into worshipped heroes. Could this be the world’s miracle? Do the calls give people hope, or do they imprison the receivers to a never-ending cycle of grief? Is this the response to the question of life after life?….
