We have a nice selection of fiction books at the Giddings Public Library.

Private Berlin by James Patterson takes us into the Berlin office of the world’s most renowned investigation firm.

When Chris suddenly disappears, he becomes Private Berlin’s most urgent investigation yet.

Alex Cross Run by James Patterson involves Detective Alex Cross as he hunts three serial killers. Is someone else hunting him? This is James Patterson’s most unrelenting story yet. It is a white-hot sensational thrill ride with the most extreme and gripping characters Patterson has ever brought to life.

The Forgotten by David Baldacci is an intriguing story about Army Special Agent John Puller. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case, but this time the case is personal. His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida. What Puller finds convinces him that his aunt’s death was no accident.

Two Graves by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child is about Special Agent Pendergast. He is assisting NYPD Lieutenant D’Agosta in the investigation of a number of killings that ultimately prove to be messages from his wife’s kidnappers.

The Black Box by Michael Connally introduces us to Detective Harry Bosch. He is searching for a killer who thinks he’s been safe for twenty years.

Ironhorse by Robert B. Parker is about “itinerant” lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch. They find themselves in the midst of a heist with a gang of vicious outlaws, two beautiful young hostages, and a cold-blooded killer with a seething vendetta he’s determined to carry out.
