What’s New?

A young boy in New York City, Theo Decker, miraculously survives an accident that takes the life of his mother. Alone and abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by a friend’s family and struggles to make sense of his new life. In the years that follow, he becomes entranced by one of the few things that reminds him of his mother, a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the art underworld, in The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

Just in time for baseball season, we have Die Like an Eagle by Donna Andrews.  It takes more than a wing and a prayer to solve a murder mystery.  Can Meg Langslow knock this one out of the park?

After being severely injured in a mysterious accident, a man uses the large sum of money he received as compensation to bring to life a series of bizarre visions that have haunted him since the accident, in Remainder, a novel by Tom McCarthy.

For our inspirational readers, from Corban Addison, we have A Walk Across the Sun – After their home in India is devastated by a tsunami, two teenage sisters are taken by criminals and thrust into a world of violence and human trafficking. Half a world away, an American lawyer is estranged from his wife and pursues a pro bono sabbatical in Mumbai working with an organization that prosecutes the human traffickers who have abducted the girls.

Also by Addison, The Garden of Burning Sand – On a dark night in Lusaka, Zambia, an adolescent girl is brutally assaulted. In shock, she cannot speak. Her identity is a mystery. The girl’s case is taken up by Zoe Fleming, a human rights lawyer working in Africa.

In Use of Force by Brad Thor, Scot Harvath is tapped by the CIA to determine if the body of a high-value terrorist that washed ashore after a severe storm across the Mediterranean Sea, was connected to months of rumors about a major attack.

This Library now has a copy of The Manitoba Ombudsman 2017 Annual Report highlighting the work and accomplishments of the office under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the Personal Health Information Act, the Ombudsman Act and the Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblower Protection Act) for your information.
