Reading Ahead: March 2016, part 1

I know, it's hard to believe I'm already talking about March, but that means there's an end in sight to winter! In the meantime, here are a few pulse-pounding thrillers to look forward to.

Private Paris, by James Patterson and Mark Sullivan. When Jack Morgan stops by Private's Paris office, he envisions a quick hello during an otherwise relaxing trip. But Jack is quickly pressed into duty after getting a call from his client Sherman Wilkerson, asking Jack to track down his young granddaughter, who is on the run from a brutal drug dealer. Before Jack can locate her, several members of France's cultural elite are found dead-murdered in stunning, symbolic fashion. The only link between the crimes is a mysterious graffiti tag. As religious and ethnic tensions simmer in the City of Lights, only Jack and his Private team can connect the dots before the smoldering powder keg explodes.

Fool Me Once, by Harlan Coben. Former special ops pilot Maya, home from the war, sees an unthinkable image captured by her nanny cam while she is at work: her two-year-old daughter playing with Maya’s husband, Joe—who had been brutally murdered two weeks earlier. The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to? To find the answer, Maya must finally come to terms with deep secrets and deceit in her own past before she can face the unbelievable truth about her husband—and herself.

Far From True, by Linwood Barclay. Second in Barclay's slated Promise Falls Trilogy, Far From True picks right up where Broken Promise's cliffhanger ending left off. (Yes, you really should start with Broken Promise. You still have time--go now!) A series of murders have both private investigator Cal Weaver and Promise Falls Police Detective Barry Duckworth trying to get to the bottom of things before more people wind up dead. In the process of their investigations, they uncover some shocking truths about Promise Falls's past, and have to race to solve old crimes or risk certain calamity. Barclay's a big favorite among our library patrons--if you haven't tried his stuff, you're missing out!
