THE SINS OF THE FATHER - JEFFREY ARCHER
On the heels of the international bestseller Only Time Will Tell, Jeffrey Archer picks up the sweeping story of the Clifton Chronicles...
Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German U-boat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw. When Bradshaw dies in the night, Harry seizes on the chance to escape his tangled past and assumes his identity.
But on landing in America, he quickly learns the mistake he has made, when he discovers what is awaiting Bradshaw in New York. Without any way of proving his true identity, Harry Clifton is now chained to a past that could be far worse than the one he had hoped to escape.

Alan Jacobson - The 7th Victim
The Dead Eyes Killer lurks in the backyard of the famed FBI Profiling Unit. His brutal murders confound the local task force, despite the gifted profiling skills of Special Agent Karen Vail. But along with Vail's insight and expertise comes considerable personal and professional baggage.
On leave pending a review of her assault on her abusive ex-husband, Vail must battle forces determined to bring her down, as she fights to find Dead Eyes before he murders more young women. But the seventh victim is the key to all that stirs this killer...the key that will unlock secrets perhaps too painful for Vail to bear. These are secrets that threaten to destroy her, secrets that will bring down her storied career. For Karen Vail, the truth rests at the heart of a lie. And uncovering it could get her killed...
This is a good book because it recounts the untold stories of EDSA from the perspective of the military players, and also looks at how far along the country's at since the first EDSA and all other destabilization attempts, military-led or otherwise.

NEMESIS - AGATHA CHRISTIE
Miss Jane Marple has received a most unexpected letter from the solicitors of her late friend Jason Rafiel: a generous inheritance, if she's willing to utilize her "natural flair for crime". It appears Mr. Rafiel wants Miss Marple to solve a crime. A particularly baffling one since since there are no clues as to what happened, when it supposedly occurred where it was committed or for that matter, to whom. In fact the puzzled sleuth has but one code word to work with: Nemesis.
Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead--keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life.
It's been months since the ghost of Anna Korlov opened a door to Hell in her basement and disappeared into it, but ghost-hunter Cas Lowood can't move on.
His friends remind him that Anna sacrificed herself so that Cas could live—not walk around half dead. He knows they're right, but in Cas's eyes, no living girl he meets can compare to the dead girl he fell in love with.
Now he's seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he's asleep and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong...these aren't just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.
Cas doesn't know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn't deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it's time for him to return the favor.
- awesome series!
THE DAY DIANA DIED - CHRISTOPHER ANDERSEN
When I was born, I was unwanted.
When I married Charles, I was unwanted.
When I joined the Royal Family, I was unwanted
I want to be wanted."
Where were you the day Diana died? Like the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the tragic death of the Princess of Wales on August 31, 1997, is one of those defining benchmarks in history --- and event that touched each of us so profoundly, we will never forget the moment we heard the news.
A full year after the Paris car crash that ended Diana's life at age thirty-six, millions around the world remain in shock. During the sixteen years since her storybook wedding to Prince Charles, she had evolved from "Shy Di" into the planets most photographed, written-about, and talked-about woman --- indeed, the most famous person in the world.
For all Diana's global fame, much of the human drama that swirled around her death remains veiled in mystery and intrigue. Now, in the manner of his headline-making Kennedy biographies, Jack and Jackie and Jackie after Jack, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources--- many of whom have agreed to speak here for the first time --- to re-create in vivid and often startling detail the events leading up to that fateful night in Pairs. Among the revelations:
Important new information about Diana's final moment's alive, the accident itself --- and what no one knew about the other convicted drunk driver in the car that night.
Prince Charles's surprising reaction to the news of Diana's death --- including his shock the first time he saw her body --- the Queen's bizarre request, and a riveting account of how Prince William and Prince Harry coped with their shock and grief.
The broken romance that pushed her into the arms of Dodi Fayed, their curious relationship, and whether or not she truly planned to marry him.
A behind-the-scene account of the battle royal that raged between the Queen and Prince Charles in the leading up to the funeral.
Diana's quest, and the warnings that might have saved her.
Final answers to persistent rumors that Diana was pregnant at the time of the accident, that cocaine was found in the car --- and that she was the victim of a murder plot.
At the end, Diana wanted for her sons, her vision of a future King William -- and the man she most wanted him to emulate.
Diana was, in every sense of the word, larger than life --- a force of nature that, as the Royal Family learned, could be neither dismissed nor ignored. A bittersweet sage, of triumph, love, and loss, The Day Diana Died captures those last days when Diana's star never shone brighter --- and evokes the beauty, grace, heartache, and compassion that made Diana one of the most compelling figures of our time.
