Cavanagh - The Plea: A Novel

Item Description


A must-read for fans of John Grisham. The Plea is the brilliant new action-filled legal thriller from the author of The Defense.

When David Child, a major client of a corrupt New York law firm, is arrested for murder, the FBI ask con-artist-turned-lawyer Eddie Flynn to secure David as his client and force him to testify against the firm. The FBI swears David is guilty as hell--plus they have incriminating files on Eddie's wife. If Eddie can't or won't get David to hire him, she'll pay the price.

Though the evidence overwhelmingly says that David killed his girlfriend, when Eddie meets David, he's convinced the man is innocent. With the FBI putting pressure on him to secure his client's guilty plea, Eddie has to find a way to prove Child's innocence while keeping his wife out of danger. Using his legal know-how, grifting talent, and some brilliant sleight of hand, Eddie must find the real killer before it's too late.

Eddie has an innocent client, a guilty wife, and only a few days to save them both.

Hansen - First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong

Item Description


When Apollo 11 touched down on the Moon’s surface in 1969, the first man on the Moon became a legend. In First Man, author James R. Hansen explores the life of Neil Armstrong. Based on over fifty hours of interviews with the intensely private Armstrong, who also gave Hansen exclusive access to private documents and family sources, this “magnificent panorama of the second half of the American twentieth century” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) is an unparalleled biography of an American icon. In this “compelling and nuanced portrait” (Chicago Tribune) filled with revelations, Hansen vividly recreates Armstrong’s career in flying, from his seventy-eight combat missions as a naval aviator flying over North Korea to his formative trans-atmospheric flights in the rocket-powered X-15 to his piloting Gemini VIII to the first-ever docking in space. For a pilot who cared more about flying to the Moon than he did about walking on it, Hansen asserts, Armstrong’s storied vocation exacted a dear personal toll, paid in kind by his wife and children. For the near-fifty years since the Moon landing, rumors have swirled around Armstrong concerning his dreams of space travel, his religious beliefs, and his private life. A penetrating exploration of American hero worship, Hansen addresses the complex legacy of the First Man, as an astronaut and as an individual. “First Man burrows deep into Armstrong’s past and present…What emerges is an earnest and brave man” (Houston Chronicle) who will forever be known as history’s most famous space traveler.

Picoult - My Sister's Keeper: A Novel

Item Description


From the New York Times bestselling author of Small Great Things and The Storyteller, a “beautifully crafted novel” (People) that explores a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be.

By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate—a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now.

Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister—and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

My Sister’s Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child’s life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you? Once again, in My Sister’s Keeper, Jodi Picoult “writes with a fine touch, a sharp eye for detail, and a firm grasp of the delicacy and complexity of human relationships” (The Boston Globe).

Scalzi - Lock In: A Novel of the Near Future

Item Description


A new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. For most of those infected, it's just a few days of fever and misery. But for the unlucky one percent—millions of people in the US alone—the disease causes "lock in": Victims are fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to anything. "Lock in" syndrome strikes the young and the old, the rich and the poor, people of every color and kind.

A quarter of a century later, in a world shaped by what's now known as"Haden's syndrome," rookie FBI agent Chris Shane and veteran agent Leslie Vann are assigned to what appears to be a Haden-related murder. The suspect is an "Integrator"—someone who can let the locked-in borrow their bodies for a time. As Shane and Vann begin to unravel the threads of the murder, it becomes clear that the real mystery—and the real crime—is bigger than anyone could have imagined. Their investigation will take them from the halls of power to the virtual spaces of the locked-in, and to the very heart of an emerging, surprising new human culture.
