5/3: New at the library this week

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on May 3, 2008

Audiobooks:

The mists of Avalon / Marion Zimmer Bradley
(cassettes; abridged)

“Q” is for quarry / Sue Grafton
She was a “Jane Doe,” an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California’s Highway 1. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff’s Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire, there were mulitple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the case remained unsolved. (cassettes; abridged)

The jester / James Patterson; Andrew Gross
“Hugh De Luc, a poor innkeeper, returns home from the First Crusade wearied from battle and disillusioned by carnage. After journeying from the Holy Land back to his own small village, he finds his nightmare is just beginning.” In his absence, Hugh’s son has been killed and his beloved wife, Sophie, abducted by a ruthless duke in search of a priceless relic dating back to the Crucifixion. Taking on the role of a jester, Hugh infiltrates the court where he believes Sophie is held captive. There he confronts men more evil than he ever imagined and embarks on an epic battle to restore his broken life. (cassettes; unabridged)

The kills / Linda A. Fairstein; Barbara Rosenblat
Manhattan Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper is working feverishly on a tough trial, seeking justice for investment banker Paige Vallis. But in a heated “he said, she said” case, Alex learns that Paige herself has something to hide. Uptown, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104691/the murder of an elderly woman with an intriguing past has NYPD officer Mercer Wallace and detective Mike Chapman hunting for an item of stunning value that may have cost McQueen Ransome her life: a legendary Double Eagle gold coin. The twisting threads of the seemingly unrelated tragedies soon entangle Alex in a life-and-death struggle in the watery inlets of New Jersey known as the Kills…where a violent predator is determined to silence her forever. (cassettes; abridged)

Creative floral arranging / Cowles Creative Publishing

Wreath magic : 86 magnificent wreaths, garlands & swags to make / Leslie Dierks

The complete book of wreaths : 200 delightful & creative designs / Chris Rankin

Dough crafts / Isolde Kiskalt

101 stocking stuffers / Oxmoor House

Hold tight / Harlan Coben
Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they’d become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their sixteen-year-old son Adam has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate Spencer Hill—the latest in a string of issues at school—they can’t help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam’s computer, and within days are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: “Just stay quiet and all safe.”

The Alpine scandal / Mary Daheim
It’s a quiet morning at the Advocate until the mail brings shocking news: a formal obituary for Alpiner Elmer Nystrom. As far as anyone knows, Elmer is alive and well. But he hasn’t turned up for work, so Emma and her unstoppable House & Home editor, Vida Runkel, rush to the Nystrom home, where they find Elmer’s lifeless body in the henhouse, half buried under straw. Not only has he been murdered, but his obituary had been mailed before he died. Though Elmer was well liked by everyone, the same cannot be said of his standoffish wife or his son, the town’s new orthodontist. (read an exerpt)

The last assassin / Barry Eisler
When Japanese/American contract killer John Rain learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, he senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption. But Midori is being watched by Rain’s enemies, and his sudden appearance puts mother and child in terrible danger. To save them, Rain is forced to use the same deadly talents he had been hoping to leave behind.

A circle of quiet / Madeleine L’Engle
This journal shares fruitful reflections on life and career prompted by the author’s visit to her personal place of retreat near her country home. (read an exerpt)
