Giddings Library News Corner

by Judy Belyeu

The Giddings Public Library has several new western books to offer to our patrons. The Black Hills by Rod Thompson is about young Cormac Lynch. He looks up to his dad as much as he loves his mother and sister. But one day, a few men ride in who defile everything they touch. They take what they want and move on, leaving Cormac the only survivor.

Assault On The Mountain Man by William W. Johnstone (in paperback) is about Smoke Jensen who stands as a force of will in the brutal, lawless west. Smoke is being lured into a trap at a place called Black Canyon—a deep, dark valley of death from which only one man will emerge alive.

Silent Kills by C.E. Lawrence (in paperback) is a mystery fiction about NYPD profiler Lee Campbell who has seen the gruesome handiwork of the most deranged criminal minds. Don’t Look Behind You by Ann Rule (in paperback) is a collection of truecrime tales featuring individuals who are targeted by random and known perpetrators and includes the story, “North to Alaska,” in which two families are drawn into a web of intrigue by a thirty-yearold murder. Man Overboard by Joan Lownds is a compelling story of crime, tragedy, and ultimately justice. A Slave In The White House by Elizabeth Dowling Taylor is the reveting story of a man, once owned by President James Madison, who rose from slavery to freedom and became a leading abolitionist.

Other good non-fiction books that are available are: Pearl Harbor Christmas by Stanley Weintraub; When Chicken Soup Isn’t Enough by Suzanne Gordon; Super Cleanse by Adina Niemerow; Noto’s Essential Guide To Custody And Support: The Answers You Need by Emily Doskow.
