Wrap up February with some good reading

Wrap up February with some good reading

By Sherry Mohan-Neves

Port Jervis Free Library

Already heading out of February in a few days and into the bluster and/or sunshine of unpredictable March. We'll make it through, and then it'll be planning our Spring gardens. Here are some interesting new titles to help pass the time until then:

New fiction:

“Sierra Six” by Mark Greaney. Before he was the Gray Man, Court Gentry was Sierra Six, part of the CIA Special Activities team taking out a terrorist leader. Now, a decade later, “the Gray Man is on a simple mission when he sees a ghost: the long-dead terrorist, though he’s remarkably energetic for a dead man.”

“City of the Dead, An Alex Delaware novel” by Jonathan Kellerman. Psychologist Delaware and Detective Milo Sturgis “investigate a grisly double homicide and uncover an even more unspeakable motive.”

“Goliath” by Tochi Onyebuchi. “A vision of a future so plausible it’s frightening.”

“Steal” by James Patterson and Howard Roughan. “Art galleries and casinos, mansion and brothels, billionaires and thieves. Only James Patterson could create a triple-cross this decadent and suspenseful.”

“Abandoned in Death” by J.D. Robb. “Homicide detective Eve Dallas must untangle a twisted family history while a hostage’s life hangs in the balance.”

“To Paradise” by Hanya Yanagihara. “A brilliant novel spanning three centuries and three different versions of the American experiment, about lovers, family, loss, and the elusive promise of utopia.”

New non-fiction:

“The President’s Man: the Memoirs of Nixon’s Trusted Aide” by Dwight Chapin. “Enlightening and brimming with perceptive insights on Nixon and the ‘why’ of his political demise . . . is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand America’s most underappreciated president.”

“Speaking in Thumbs” by Mimi Winsberg. “A psychiatrist decodes your relationship texts so you don’t have to.”

“Foreverland: on the Divine Tedium of Marriage” by Heather Havrilesky. “An illuminating, poignant, and savagely funny examination of modern marriage.”

“The Founders’ Fortunes: How Money Shaped the Birth of America” by Willard Sterne Randall

“Sentence: Ten Years and a Thousand Books in Prison” by Daniel Genis.

“52 Ways to Walk” by Annabel Streets. “The surprising science of walking for wellness and joy. One week at a time.”
