The Skin Collector

Jeffery Deaver

Recommended by: Earnestine B

  Lincoln Rhyme is facing a new predator, who is using the tunnels and basements, in New York City. Is he connected to the Bone Collector, who had terrorized the city.

  This predator tattoos his victims with poison ink. Is he a copy cat or is he doing this for some dark and sinister reason. It's up to Rhyme and his team to solve this mystery to keep  the death count from going up any further.

  Jeffery Deaver is a new author for me. I intend to read the earlier books in this series.

A Million Ways to Die in the West

Seth MacFarlane

Recommended by: Sheila U

This is not a typical western; it is raunchy, bawdy, and filled with graphic language.  But it is also hilariously funny.  Read by Jonathan Frakes (from Star Trek: The Next Generation), it is a novelization of the movie "A Million Ways to Die in the West", that was in theaters earlier this summer.  

Walking On Water

Richard Paul Evans

Recommended by: Nancy B

The final book n "The Walk" series.  I am not going to tell you if he made it to Key West.

It was not a disappointment.
