I love this time of year...a new season, a fresh outlook, George Clooney is engaged and best of all...lots of new books. Below is a short list of some new titles compiled by Bookreporter.com. Reviews have been good and as always Joyce Carol Oates is depressing....See if you agree....
HIGH CRIME AREA: TALES OF DARKNESS AND DREAD BY JOYCE CAROL OATES
(Suspence Short Stories)
Joyce Carol Oates is an unparalleled investigator of human flaws. In these eight stories, she deftly tests the bonds between damaged individuals --- a brother and sister, a teacher and student, two strangers on a subway --- in the fearless prose for which she’s become so celebrated. She confronts, one by one, the demons within us. Sometimes it’s the human who wins, and sometimes it’s the demon. Reviewed by Sarah Rachel Egelman.
THE TARGET BY DAVID BALDACCI (Thriller)
The President knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel. Reviewed by Ray Palen.
EVERYTHING TO LOSE BY ANDREW GROSS (Thriller)
When Hilary Blum stops to help a car that slammed into a tree, she discovers the driver dead --- and a satchel stuffed with a half a million dollars. That money could prevent her family's ruin and keep her special needs son in school. In an instant, this honest, achieving woman who has always done the responsible thing makes a decision that puts her in the center of a maelstrom of dark consequences and life-threatening recriminations.
