January's LibraryReads Favorite is: The Girl Before
A Novel by JP Delaney
(Ballantine Books)

“A page turner that is sure to be a hit. Each chapter alternates between two time periods. Back “then,” there is Emma, looking for the perfect flat. Her agent suggests One Folgate Street, built by architect Edward Monkford. In present day, Jane, a single thirty-something also ends up on Folgate Street. Both women learn the sinister history of the property and readers won’t know who to trust as Delaney’s debut clutches you by the throat and won’t let you go.” -Kara Kohn, Plainfield Public Library District, Plainfield, IL

Wolf Boys by Dan Slater

This is a very good narrative nonfiction book about the drug trade on the border town of New Laredo, Mexico. Slater relates background information on Mexican Drug cartels, their bosses and how interwoven they were with Mexican law enforcement and politics. His story takes shape when two teenagers find themselves involved in transporting drugs into the US for the Zeta cartel and and the police officer they encounter across the border in Laredo, Texas, trying to keep drugs out of his town.
