    A Garden of Earthly Delights

    Oates, Joyce Carol

    "In A garden of earthly delights, Oates presents one of her most memorable heroines, Clara Walpole, the beautiful daughter of Kentucky-born migrant farmworkers. Desperate to rise above her haphazard existence of violence and poverty, determined not to repeat her mother's life, Clara struggles for independence by way of her relationships with four very different men: her father, a family man turned itinerant laborer, smoldering with resentment; the mysterious Lowry, who rescues Clara as a teenager and offers her the possibility of love; Revere, a wealthy landowner who provides Clara with stability; and Swan, Clara's son, who bears the psychological and spiritual burden of his mother's ambition."--Jacket.

    Rule of Capture: A Novel

    Brown, Christopher

    Defeated in a devastating war with China, America is on the brink of a bloody civil war. Seizing power after a controversial election, the ruling regime has begun cracking down on dissidents fighting the nation's slide toward dictatorship. For Donny Kimoe, chaos is good for business. He's a lawyer who makes his living defending enemies of the state. His newest client, young filmmaker Xelina Rocafuerte, witnessed the murder of an opposition leader and is now accused of terrorism. To save her from the only sentence worse than death, Donny has to extract justice from a system that has abandoned the rule of law. That means breaking the rules--and risking the same fate as his clients. When Donny bungles Xelina's initial hearing, he has only days to save the young woman from being transferred to a detention camp from which no one returns. His only chance of winning is to find the truth--a search that begins with the opposition leader's death and leads to a dark conspiracy reaching the highest echelons of power. Now, Donny isn't just fighting for his client's life--he's battling for his own. But as the trial in the top secret court begins, Xelina's friends set into motion a revolutionary response that could destroy the case. And when another case unexpectedly collides with Xelina's, Donny uncovers even more devastating secrets, knowledge that will force him to choose between saving one client or the future of the entire country.

    The Warehouse: A Novel

    Hart, Rob

    Paxton never thought he'd be working for Cloud, the giant tech company that's eaten much of the American economy. Much less that he'd be moving into one of the company's sprawling live-work facilities. But compared to what's left outside, Cloud's bland chainstore life of gleaming entertainment halls, open-plan offices, and vast warehouses...well, it doesn't seem so bad. It's more than anyone else is offering. Zinnia never thought she'd be infiltrating Cloud. But now she's undercover, inside the walls, risking it all to ferret out the company's darkest secrets. And Paxton, with his ordinary little hopes and fears? He just might make the perfect pawn. If she can bear to sacrifice him. As the truth about Cloud unfolds, Zinnia must gamble everything on a desperate scheme--one that risks both their lives, even as it forces Paxton to question everything about the world he's so carefully assembled here. Together, they'll learn just how far the company will go to make the world a better place.--

  • The Bird Boys: A Delpha Wade and Tom Phelan Mystery

    The Bird Boys: A Delpha Wade and Tom Phelan Mystery

    Sandlin, Lisa

    "After a serial killer almost murdered Delpha Wade ...the hospital releases her into the rough hands of the Beaumont police for questioning. She doesn't deny she killed the man--in self-defense. Problem is, she's an ex-con. Self-defense was also her plea in 1959, when a knife changed hands and she buried it in the chest of a man who was raping her. Self-defense didn't keep her out of prison. Now it's 1973, and cops are still the first judges--will they charge her? Her boss, neophyte private detective Tom Phelan, has a plan. He holds her job for her, and soon they have a new client. Easy case: one brother looking for the long-lost other, but it turns out that around one of these guys, people die. Which one? Maybe the red-headed girl--the strange one who catches glimpses of the darkest places and can see into the past--can help. But only Delpha is wise enough to listen to that wild gal"-- (8/25/2019 10:34:44 AM)
