by Steve Berry
F BER

Fans of Cotton Malone, the main character in Berry’s thrillers, will not be disappointed with this latest offering. Once again Cotton is hired by the Magellan Billet to intercept a 20 million dollar payment to North Korea. Instead he must find and destroy stolen top-secret documents that could end the financial structure of the United States Government. History fans will enjoy reading some little-known facts about the relationship between Franklin Roosevelt and Andrew Mellon in a plot that bounces between Washington, Italy, and Croatia. Enjoyable summer reading for fans of historical thrillers.

Gray mountain Gray Mountain
by John Grisham
F GRI

Grisham once again combines his usual fondness for turning just regular lawyers into giant-killers with a strong element of social commentary. This time an “out-of-her-element” Wall Street attorney battles the corrupt barons of the Appalachian coal mines. It also gives the impression of being the first in a series!

The Husband’s Secret The Husband’s Secret
by Liane Moriarty
F MOR

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret—something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive.

Zoo ZOO
by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge
F PAT

All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the impending violence becomes terrifyingly clear. Read it before the CBS show debuts later this month!

The Kind Worth Killing The Kind Worth Killing
by Peter Swanson
F SWA

A modern take on the Strangers on a Train premise, The Kind Worth Killing begins with a casual airplane conversation that leads to a murder plot. This is the perfect next read for fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train and you may, as I did, like it even better. Be sure to block out a large chunk of your schedule because you won’t be able to put this one down!

The Secret Life of Violet Grant The Secret Life of Violet Grant
by Beatriz Williams
F WIL

Manhattan, 1964. Vivian Schuyler, newly graduated from Bryn Mawr College, has recently defied the privilege of her storied old Fifth Avenue family to do the unthinkable for a budding Kennedy-era socialite: break into the Mad Men world of razor-stylish Metropolitan magazine. But when she receives a bulky overseas parcel in the mail, the unexpected contents draw her inexorably back into her family’s past.
