Adult Summer Reading is going gangbusters. This week we have some new thrillers to suggest.


The Director (2014) by David Ignatius. Ignatius has been covering the Middle East and the CIA for more than twenty-five years for The Washington Post and he brings an insider’s knowledge of the US intelligence agencies to his books. This one involves the CIA's worst nightmare...someone has hacked their computers. “Ignatius has given readers another compelling and enlightening look at what might happen next month. Must-read twenty-first-century espionage fiction.” (Booklist, Starred Review)

The Heist
(July, 2014) by Daniel Silva. “A fallen spy, a missing masterpiece, a daring mission - Sometimes the best way to find a stolen masterpiece is to steal another one." (from the publisher’s comments). Silva’s books are always full of nonstop action and international intrigue. The Heist has a terrific plot that takes some surprising turns. This is the author’s 16th novel involving Gabriel Allon, art restorer and master spy.

Cop Town (2014) by Karin Slaughter. The Washington Post called Karin Slaughter, “one of the best crime novelists in America.” After the successful Will Trent crime series, this book is Slaughter's first stand-alone novel. The riveting plotline involves a serial killer targeting cops, and a divided police force charged with bringing the madman to justice. “Superb . . . explosive . . [Cop Town] is sure to win over readers new to Slaughter’s work while reminding old fans of her enormous talent.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Days of Rage (2014) Brad Taylor. "A Pike Logan thriller filled with heart-thumping action and insane heroics...A fun, satisfying adventure." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) If you are one of the readers missing Vince Flynn's novels since he passed away, check out Brad Taylor’s newest. You won’t be disappointed.
