Most Dangerous Place:
Thursday, April 13 at 7 PM
James Grippando is the New York Times bestselling author of 25 novels of suspense, including twelve in the popular series featuring Miami criminal defense attorney Jack Swyteck. His latest, Most Dangerous Place, is the thirteenth in his Swyteck series. His first novella, The Penny Jumper, was published in October 2016. His novels are enjoyed worldwide in 28 languages. 
Most Dangerous Place 
According to the FBI, the most dangerous place for a woman between the ages of twenty and thirty is in a relationship with a man. Those statistics become all too personal when Jack Swyteck takes on a new client from his past.
 Isabelle Bornell, the wife of Jack's old friend, is accused of conspiring to kill the man who raped her in college. Jack quickly agrees to represent Isa, but soon discovers that to see justice done, he must separate the truth from lies-an undertaking that proves more complicated than the seasoned attorney expects.
      Inspired by an actual case, James Grippando's twisty thriller explores the fine line between victim and perpetrator, innocence and guilt, and cold-blooded revenge and rightful retribution.

Book Reviews
Vicious Circle
By C.J.Box
 Reviewed by Gregg E. Brickman
Vicious Circle is the seventeenth C.J. Box Joe Pickett Novel. Pickett, a Wyoming Game Warden, is on his game, protecting his family from demons from his past.
     Dallas Cates holds Pickett responsible for the deaths of everyone in his family except his mother, who is living out her years in prison. Pickett also helped engineer the charges that landed Cates in jail and ended his lucrative career as a rodeo star. Now Cates is a free man and seeking revenge. Pickett understands Cates' point-of-view. His accusations are true. Pickett's actions were, however, justifiable, and he was cleared of all suspicion, though he carries a burden of guilt. Cates will not be dissuaded by the facts and, aided by criminal associates and unexplained cash, follows a plan designed to eliminate the entire Pickett family.
     Pickett, as always, struggles with a lack confidence and bravado. He makes up for that by his persistence, bravery, and ability to reach the right conclusions.
     Box takes the reader along on an adventure with as many twisting paths as there are mountains, trees, and elks. Woven into the story is a look at Wyoming's wilderness and the men who hunt in it. An excellent read. G.P. Putnam's Sons 27.00

Mangrove Lightning
By Randy Wayne White
Reviewed by Cheryl Kravetz
I love the way Randy Wayne White finds little-known facts and weaves Florida history into his novels. And Mangrove Lightning is one of his best as he delves into the ghostly world of 1925 in and around the Florida Everglades in the 20th Doc Ford novel.
     Charter captain, Tootsie Barlow, tells Doc Ford that members of his family have been victims of a series of attacks, and he is convinced it connected to a multiple murder in 1925, in which his family had a shameful part.
     Ford doesn't believe in curses, but as he and his friend Tomlinson begin to investigate, following the trail of the attacks from Key Largo to Tallahassee, they, too, suffer a series of near-fatal mishaps.
Putnam 27.00

August Snow
By Stephen Mack Jones
Reviewed by Sue Wilder
Stephen Mack Jones' debut thriller is all about strong characters, particularly the hero, August Snow.  The setting is present day Detroit.  August was a cop, but was thrown off the force because he challenged the corrupt politicians and police.  He also won a $12 million wrongful dismissal lawsuit against the City.
     After taking a year off to travel, August has returned to his childhood home in Mexicantown, an area that combines some of the worst neighborhoods with newly gentrified homes.  His plan is to rehab his house and help out his neighbors.
     Enter Eleanore Paget, wealthy businesswoman.  August knows Eleanore from an investigation when he was on the force.  She wants August to investigate some questionable activities in the wealth management business that she owns.   He refuses.  The next day Eleanore is dead, an alleged suicide.
     August doesn't believe it and starts to investigate.  The action speeds up as the police, Eleanore's employees, local politicians and the FBI become involved.  The characters are well-defined, driven by motives that are complex.
     August Snow is a well written story that introduces an interesting hardboiled character.  Good dialog, authentic location, and an unfolding backstory point to more from Mr. Jones and August.  Recommended for fans of George Pelecanos, Robert Crais and Robert Parker.

Earthly Remains
By Donna Leon
Reviewed by Stephanie Saxon Levine
Commissario Guido Brunetti of Venice commits a rash act during an interrogation, one which he immediately regrets, and decides he needs a break from his work at the Questura. Granted a leave, he plans to spend two weeks at a villa on Sant'Erasmo, a large island in the laguna. Expecting to pass the days rowing, the nights reading and generally recuperating, he soon finds himself drawn into detection, when the caretaker of the house goes missing after a bad storm. Brunetti investigates and sets aside his leave of absence to try to understand what happened to the man who had become his friend.
     Donna Leon's books are always a joy to read. They incorporate a beloved protagonist, his family, and Venice, so vividly portrayed that it becomes more a character than mere setting. The crimes Brunetti works to solve are always compelling and frequently related to a larger issue in Venice. This tale, though, takes place in a very different milieu. What's more, Brunetti's wife, Paola, hardly appears in the story, and the children are mentioned but never seen. As much as I normally look forward to seeing the family, I hardly noticed their absence in this book, so arresting were the descriptions of the island, the boating, and the history leading to the crime Brunetti had to solve.
     All the characters are finely drawn and thoroughly believable. The crime, once solved, makes perfect sense. Donna Leone once again has created a gripping tale that totally engaged this reader.
Highly Recommended. Atlantic Monthly Press 25.00      

Bone Box  
By Faye Kellerman
Reviewed by Cheryl Kravetz
Rina Lazarus and Peter Decker are back in a new and exciting novel by Faye Kellerman.
While Rina is walking in the woods near the couple's new home in Greenbury, New York, taking photographs of nature in all its beauty, she stumbles across a partially buried bone. The bone turns out to be human. As Rina's husband and his team of police detectives and forensic experts dig they find more bones.
     The body has been buried for years with no evidence as to the identity. Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, realize that the body and possibly other bones in the same area probably belong to a missing college student from the Five Colleges of Upstate where Rina works. Decker and McAdams think they could be looking for a serial killer.
     As in all of her books, Kellerman uses her unique ability to blend Orthodox Judaism into a thrilling tale that keeps the reader turning the pages as she gently explores the world of the trans-gender college student. I learn something new with each of her books.
     Faye Kellerman is one of my favorite authors. She brings her characters to life, turning them into real people that readers can identify with. Her stories are well researched allowing her to expertly blend fact with fiction. Don't miss this one. William Morrow 27.99
