Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz

Orphan X, AKA "Nowhere Man", AKA Evan, was raised by a government handler to become a silent killer and a man that does not exist on paper. His handler, the closest thing to a father he knew, tried to train him so that he retained a bit of humanity. Now years later, he works on his own to help people who are desperately in trouble. The Orphan program realizes that he still exits and wants him terminated. So begins the story of Evan in a deadly bait and switch game between professional killers.
A quick read, very entertaining, and in the works to be a motion picture.

Salem's Lot by Stephen King

A donation was made recently of many Stephen King books in excellent condition. I took the opportunity to add a few we didn't have to our collection. One such book was Salem's Lot. I decided it was time I read some of Kings older stories so I took it home. I have to say it was one of the better Vampire stories  I've read. Very entertaining! The good books are always good, even years later.

A Great Reckoning by Louise Penny

If you love Louise Penny as I do, and feel the release of a new book by her is worthy of a national holiday, check out the Anderson's Bookstore website. They are holding a launch event for her new book, "A Great Reckoning," on August 30, at North Central College in Naperville. I've heard her before, a fun speaker.  -- Becki
