Reading Ahead: September 2016, part 2

Thrillers abound during the fall months, so if you're the type to plan your reading list (and you're in very good company), here are a few to consider.

Reckless Creed, by Alex Kava. In Chicago, a young man jumps from his thirtieth-story hotel room; along the Missouri river, a hunter and his son stumble upon a lake whose surface is littered with snow geese, all of them dead; and in southern Alabama, Ryder Creed and his search-and-rescue dog Grace find the body of a young woman who went missing in the Conecuh National Forest...and it appears she filled her pockets with rocks and walked into the river. Before long Ryder Creed and FBI profiler Maggie O’Dell will discover the ominous connection among these mysterious deaths. What they find may be the most prolific killer the United States has ever known. Also available in Large Print.

Woman of God, by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro. Something a little different from Patterson and writing partner Paetro: a globe-spanning epic that ranges from Boston to the Sudan to Rome. The world is watching as massive crowds gather in Rome, waiting for news of a new pope, one who promises to be unlike any other in history. It's a turning point that may change the Church forever. Some followers are ecstatic that the movement reinvigorating the Church is about to reach the Vatican, but the leading candidate has made a legion of powerful enemies who aren't afraid to kill for their cause.

Pirate, by Clive Cussler & Robin Burcell. Latest in this duo's Sam and Remi Fargo adventure series, Pirate is a tale of an 800-year-old treasure, an ancient cypher wheel, a brutal murder, and a man who will stop at nothing to claim what he considers rightfully his. Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo have gone on impossible missions before and faced many perils, but never have they faced an adversary as determined as the one before them now. The battle will take them halfway around the world, and at its end will be either one of the most glorious finds in history—or certain death.
