Between the Covers – March 11

New book on the 7-Day Shelf this week are: “Loves Lives Here” by Amanda Jette Knox, “From the Ashes” by Jesse Thistle and “Woman On the Edge” by Samantha M. Bailey.  These are here Canadian authors and three great reads! Come on in and check it out!!

Staff Picks for the Month of March are: “The Whisper Man” by Alex North, “Clock Dance” by Anne Tyler, “The Whole Truth” by David Baldacci and this week’s feature is “The Burning Wire” by Jeffery Deaver. From the book jacket:

The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire.

When the first explosion occurs in broad daylight, reducing a city bus to a pile of molten, shrapnel-riddled metal, officials fear terrorism. Rhyme, a world-class forensic criminologist known for his successful apprehension of the most devious criminals, is immediately tapped for the investigation. Long a quadriplegic, he assembles NYPD detective Amelia Sachs and officer Ron Pulaski as his eyes, ears and legs on crime sites, and FBI agent Fred Dellray as his undercover man on the street. As the attacks continue across the city at a sickening pace, and terrifying demand letters begin appearing, the team works desperately against time and with maddeningly little forensic evidence to try to find the killer. Or is it killers…?

Meanwhile, Rhyme is consulting on another high-profile investigation in Mexico with a most coveted quarry in his crosshairs: the hired killer known as the Watchmaker, one of the few criminals to have eluded Rhyme’s net.

Juggling two massive investigations against a cruel ticking clock takes a toll on Rhyme’s health. Soon Rhyme is fighting on yet another front – and his determination to work despite his physical limitations threatens to drive away his closest allies when he needs them most.

The Hudson’s Bay Company is the oldest company in North America.  It was created in 1670, when the King of England granted a royal charter to investors interested in trading with Indigenous peoples for furs.  Although trade relationships were often unequal, HBC posts were an important part of life for many Indigenous families for centuries.  In the 19th century, HBC diversified its interests, becoming the department store chain that Canadians know today.
