FEBRUARY- The Books of the Month.




Real Crime by Bernard P. Achampong, Thomas Glasser.


Britain's most chilling crimes are brought sensationally to life in this compelling new series, using court room transcripts, police interviews, 999 calls, secret audio recordings and eye witness testimonies. With new insights into those responsible - from the murderous marriage of Fred and Rose West to Jamie Bulger's killers - this show is not for the easily disturbed.


Alice Black by J. Schlenker 


At eighteen, Alice escapes the grip of her clinging mother and leaves Queens with a Columbia law student and four others to live primitively in rural West Virginia. Called back home by her ailing mother, she seeks answers to why her father disappeared. Her mother takes the secret to her grave. Alice is ready to move on until a visit from a plain clothes detective and cryptic messages from fortune cookies appear.

The Dispatcher by John Scalzi

One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know. But it changes everything: war, crime, daily life.
Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher - a licensed, bonded professional whose job is to humanely dispatch those whose circumstances put them in death's crosshairs, so they can have a second chance to avoid the reaper. But when a fellow Dispatcher and former friend is apparently kidnapped, Tony learns that there are some things that are worse than death and that some people are ready to do almost anything to avenge a supposed wrong.
It's a race against time for Valdez to find his friend before it's too late...before not even a Dispatcher can save him.
