Lipstick

By Vish Dhamija

CD

DCP Rita Ferreira is called into the investigation after a third corpse is discovered in Mumbai, which confirms it is the work of the same killer who paints his victims lips with dark red lipstick.

The Lipstick Killer, like all serial killers, is fast decompensating–the time interval between the murders shortening, the victims shifting from street-side hookers to high-heeled wives … and he watches everything and everyone–the news of his exploits, Rita, the investigation–and talks. However, he only talks to you: “When I’m gone, some people may tell you that I was evil, perhaps even call me a psychopath. Don’t believe them. I am not. I am anything but irrational and impractical; perhaps only slightly more detached than your average guy on the street.”

The Big Dark Sky

By Dean Koontz

CD

A group of strangers bound by terrifying synchronicity becomes humankind’s hope of survival in an exhilarating, twist-filled novel by Dean Koontz, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense.

Black Hampton

By Carl Weber

CD

It’s old money versus new money, and neither family seems willing to compromise. Will the tension between them shatter any hopes of a peaceful summer? Hidden away near the end of Long Island, New York, is a community where affluent African Americans, their friends, and the wannabes have secretly vacationed for more than 75 years. Unlike the bluffs of Martha’s Vineyard, Black folks here own five miles of prime beachfront. With a mix of legacy families, new money, hangers-on, and thirsty developers, drama can never be far behind in a place called the Black Hamptons. The Brittons are the owners of Amistad Bank, the nation’s largest minority-owned bank. They consider themselves the ‘First Family’ of the Black Hamptons and have owned their estate home for three generations. Their matriarch, Carolyn Britton, and her two sons, Malcolm and Martin, are not to be played with.

The Book Haters’ Club

By Grethen Anthony

CD

That was what Elliot–the beloved co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookshop–believed before his untimely passing. He always had the perfect book suggestion for the self-proclaimed Book Hater. Now his grief-ridden business partner, Irma, has agreed to sell the cozy Over the Rainbow to condo developers. But others won’t give up the bookshop without a fight. When Irma breaks the news to her daughters, Bree and Laney, and Elliot’s romantic partner, Thom, they are aghast. Over the Rainbow has been Bree and Laney’s sanctuary since childhood, and Thom would do anything to preserve Elliot’s legacy. Together they conspire to save the bookshop, even if it takes some snooping, gossip and minor sabotage. Filled with humor, family hijinks and actual reading recommendations, The Book Haters’ Book Club is the ideal feel-good read. It’s a love letter to everyday heroes–those booksellers and librarians dedicated to putting the right books in the right hands every day.

A skeptical Nora Kelly, to her great annoyance, is tasked with the job. Nora’s excavation immediately uncovers two murder victims buried at the site, faces and hands obliterated with acid to erase their identities.

But Josh has more than basketball in his blood–he’s got mad beats, too, which help him find his rhythm when it’s all on the line.
