By Judy Belyeu

Historic Photos of Texas Lawmen by Mike Cox was given in memory of Dennis Maass. This book features close to 200 images of Texas lawmen, bad men (and a few bad women), assorted characters with a few enforcement connections like legendary Judge Roy Bean, and shots of the places they did their work - for good or bad. Each photograph has a story to tell.

Move Over, Alex Cross by James Patterson features the NYPD’S Michael Bennett. Detective Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett’s lifelong friend Hughie McDonough dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City - and get revenge on Michael Bennett.

Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the Clinton Chronicles. Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clinton, hoping to escape the consequences of long buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. His ship sinks, but an American cruise liner rescues a handful of sailors including Harry. Harry assumes the name of a man who died on the ship, only to find a past that could be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape.

Outlaws of the Brasada by Les Savage Jr. is a novel set in the Brasada region of Texas. Things looked dark for Emery Bandine when he returned to Spanish Crossing from fighting in the Civil war. He started to gather a stake by rounding up unbranded cattle, but couldn’t afford to pay for medical care for his wife and she died while carrying their third child. He gathers his children and continues to raise his cattle; however, the Union forces try to confiscate his cattle. How can he fight the occupation and at the same time protect his children?

Several other good books are: Border Run by Simon Lewis; Into the Dreaming by Karen Marie Moning, and Ada’s Rules by Alice Randall.
