New fiction

It’s time to dive right into a few adult fiction books. I know it’s summer and being outdoors is probably high priority, but why not check out one of these great novels in case you want to sit down under a big oak tree to cool off or cool off at the lakeshore?

A Separation by Katie Kitamura is a very suspenseful story of infidelity and intimacy. I know same old same old you say? This is about a woman who is about to end her marriage and then her husband goes missing and she went to find him. She found she understands less than she thought she did about the man she used to love. Her secrets are revealed as the author propels you into a world of a woman on the edge.

Do you like thrillers? Then this is the book for you: The Agent Runner by Simon Conway is a thrilling thriller. Conway takes his readers behind the headlines in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and unveils a nightmare of violence, double agents, drugs, sadistic torture and so much more. This is a very vivid and true to life story that will possibly make you forget to take a breath.

Elan Mastai is an award-winning screenwriter and All Our Wrong Todays is his first novel. It's about time travel and alternate timelines, written with a gallon of humor, a couple quarts of wisdom, and a cup or two of insightfulness and optimism. This story is about the various versions of ourselves that are shed and grown into over time and about friendship, family, unexpected journeys, and of course, love in its many forms.

Paul Auster, the first recipient of the NYC Literary Honors in the category of fiction, has written several bestselling books like Sunset Park, Invisible, and The New York Trilogy.  His latest, 4321, is the first novel he’s written in seven years. The story starts out in Newark, New Jersey in March of 1947 and is about a boy, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson. The story presents four simultaneous and independent fictional paths for this boy's life to follow. This novel will keep you guessing right up to the end.

Lastly, there’s Feversong by Karen Marie Moning, the epic conclusion to her pulse-pounding Fever series. This story, like the others in the series, features MacKayla Lane. If you have read her other books in this series, then you must read this one. MacKayla has unleashed “The Sinsar Dubb”, a sentient book of evil that has possessed her body and will stop at nothing to satisfy its insatiable quest for power. This is a must read.
