Roadside Crosses - Jeffery Deaver

Roadside Crosses is a new Kathryn Dance novel. Nobody has this one right at first and then when they think they have it right they still have it wrong. To make it more interesting Kathryn's Mom is arrested for murder in a parallel thread. Very highly recommended.

Hunting Season - P. T. Deutermann

Hunting Season is a novel centering on ex-FBI agent Edwin Kreiss. Why he's an ex-FBI agent and what some people are willing to do to make him even more ex are key to this story. Kreiss' daughter goes missing and things begin to heat up. There's plenty of action with dogs, guns, and bombs galore. I'll be reading more from Deutermann. Very highly recommended.

Cemetery Dance - Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child

Cemetery Dance is another agent Pendergast novel. The authors claim you don't have to read their books in any particular order. They're wrong about the Pendergast novels. The good news is you will enjoy each and every book. This time is appears Pendergast and Lt. D'Agosta are dealing with zombiis. The usual cast of characters appear, but sadly one dies this time around. Read the story to find out who and how. Very highly recommended.

Relentless - Dean Koontz

Relentless is a story about a man who went against the flow without knowing it. This is vintage Koontz. Like many of his books it begs for a sequel. And in traditional Koontz fashion there's an exceptional dog mixed into the tale. It's not a tongue in cheek novel, but it has plenty of humor to go with the suspense and terror. Give it a chance and it gets deadly serious. Very highly recommended.

Sarah - Kaylene Johnson

Sarah is a short but well written biography of Alaska's Governor Sarah Palin. It covers her life from birth to her election as Alaska's first female and youngest ever governor. It's an interesting and inspiring story. The book has a collection of pictures from Governor Palin's childhood through her election. It gives some interesting insight into the life of a woman who could play a pivotal role in our country's future. Highly recommended.
