Recent new arrivals and now on the shelf, include, The Racketeer by John Grisham. Who is the Racketeer? And what does he have to do with the judge’s untimely demise? His name, for the moment, is Malcom Bannister. Job status? Former attorney. Current residence? The Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland. On paper, Malcom’s situation isn’t looking too good these days, but he’s got an ace up his sleeve. He knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and he knows why. The judge’s body was found in his remote lakeside cabin. No forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies: Judge Fawcett and his young secretary. And one large, state -of-the -art, extremely secure safe, opened and emptied.
Threat Vector by Tom Clancy, an electrifying work of fiction that may soon be frighteningly close to reality. For the covert warriors of the secret organization known as The Campus, the fight against America’s enemies is never over--if only because one enemy’s destruction inevitably gives rise to a new, even more dangerous foe.

Another, The Twelve by Justin Cronin is available. These books are “thriller” reading.
