Giddings Library News Corner

by Judy Belyeu

The Giddings Public Library has many new books with CD’s.

Chasing Midnight by Randy Wayne White is about a small island, a group of hostages, an enemy with a short fuse and an even shorter deadline. Cell 8 (in large print) by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom introduces Detective Superintendent Ewert Grens of Three Seconds. He returns in a riveting mystery that centers on perhaps the most controversial subject in the modern criminal justice system: the death penalty.

Stay Close by Harlan Coben is about a bored housewife, a documentary photographer – turned-paparazzo, and a detective who cannot let go of a cold case hide secrets from their loved ones only to have the past return in dangerous ways. The Storm by Clive Cussler takes place in the Indian Ocean as a NUMA research vessel is suddenly destroyed by a malevolent black substance originally mistaken for an oil spill. Kurt Austin and Joe Zavale pursue an investigation and discover a plot targeting millions of victims.

Capitol Murder’s by Phillip Margolin is about private investigator Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller. Dana and Brad are brought together once again when the convicted serial killer they put away escapes from death row and a new terrorist threat emerges. Lullaby by Robert B. Parker (in large print) is another Spenser novel. Spenser takes up a seemingly open and closed cold case at the behest of a street-wise teen-age girl, who believes her mother’s murderers went free. As Spenser digs deeper into the mystery, he finds a much more dangerous and complex mystery than he bargained for.

Enjoy a cup of coffee in the foyer. Compliments of the Giddings Public Library. The Library is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and from 10 until 1 on Saturdays.
