On The Librarian's Nightstand
Lying In Wait
by Liz Nugent
"A devastating psychological thriller...Lydia is the most intriguing puzzle; equal parts victim and villain, she simultaneously inspires pity, outrage, and horror. The result is an exquisitely uncomfortable, utterly captivating reading experience."  (Publishers Weekly

Book of the Week
This week's Book of the Week is Bearskin by James A. McLaughlin. Rice Moore is trying to forge a new, solitary life protecting a forest preserve in Virginian Appalachia far from the dangerous past that he left. When bears start turning up poached, Rice get serious about catching the poachers, putting him at odds with particular locals and at risk of being found by his old life. The story has solid suspense, but the real appeal is the Appalachian setting and Rice's work with his predecessor, a scientist who continues her research in the area.
