Summer is over, and you’ll want to be sure to put these popular titles on your reading list. Let Ericson Public Library help you find the hottest reads for this month.
If you liked Sue Grafton’s novels A-V, you’ll love “W is for Wasted.”
“Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I’d never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue.”
The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He’d been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He’d been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone’s name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.
Two seemingly unrelated deaths: one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes.
But as Kinsey digs deeper into the mystery of the John Doe, some strange linkages begin to emerge. And before long, at least one aspect is solved as Kinsey literally finds the key to his identity.
In this multilayered tale, the surfaces seem clear, but the underpinnings are full of betrayals, misunderstandings and outright murderous fraud. And Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised.
Are you a fan of Jack Reacher? Want to read more Lee Child? Check out “Never Go Back.”
Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had.
Reacher is there to meet — in person — the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.
Reacher fights, aiming to find Turner and clear his name, barely a step ahead of the Army, the FBI, the D.C. Metro police, and four unidentified thugs.
