In the start of the gripping seventh Women’s Murder Club thriller, San Francisco is still haunted by the disappearance of Michael Campion, the adored teenage son of a former California governor, three months earlier. Following up on a tip that Michael was last seen entering a prostitute’s house, homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer and her new partner, Rich Conklin, are shocked when the hooker immediately confesses that Michael, who had a heart defect, died during sex and she disposed of his body. But the story soon takes a bizarre turn. Lindsay and Rich also scramble to track down a serial arsonist responsible for murdering a string of wealthy couples. In true Patterson style, the reader is privy to Lindsay’s thoughts as well as the killers’, ratcheting up the suspense. The twist at the end is perfect.
BEING A SCOT
BY SEAN CONNERY AND MURRAY GRIGOR
An international super star and a knight of the British Empire, but Sir Sean Connery considers himself a Scot first. He grew up in a two-room Fountainbridge home in the smoky industrial end of Edinburgh delivering milk as a schoolboy. He still knows the city of Edinburgh practically street by street from his delivering days. His round included Fettes College, where Ian Fleming had sent his fictional James Bond after he was expelled from Eton. In this book Sir Sean paints a vivid and highly personal portrait of Scotland and its achievements. His personal quest with writer Murray Grigor has been to seek answers to some perplexing questions. How did the Scots come to devise so many new sports and games, or raise others to new heights? What gave fire to the Gothic tendency in Scottish literature? Why have so many creatively inventive and influential architects been Scots? Where did Scotland’s unreal blend of psychotic humour originate? And what about the national tradition of self-deprecation sometimes called the Scottish cringe? He also offers a correction to misconceptions that many believe are part of history and reveals as never before his own vibrant personal history.

Ever the Good Samaritan, Stone intervenes in a fight on the train, but when the Amtrak conductor asks to see his ID, he gets off at the next station, knowing his fake ID won’t withstand scrutiny. This detour takes Stone to Divine, a one-horse mining town, where he becomes enmeshed in corruption and intrigue. Stone is not only evading his pursuers, he’s also cast himself adrift from his comrades, who are working feverishly behind the scenes to find him and keep him safe.
THE LOST ARMY
BY VALERIO MASSIME MANFREDI
It is the 4th century BC. In a village in Syria a woman, dressed in rags is seen approaching from the north. Suspicious, the villagers shout and throw rocks at her. She is struck and falls. She was the mistress of Xenophon, a general in the vast army of the thousand Greek mercenaries from virtually every Greek city state employed by Cyrus the Younger, in his quest to seize the throne of Persia from his brother, Artaxerxes II. This is a rip-roaring adventure seen from the perspective of the women who accompanied the soldiers on their long journey.
