    “When Pentagon bioterror operative Roberto Diaz was sent to investigate a suspected biochemical attack, he found something far worse: a highly mutative organism capable of extinction-level destruction. He contained it and buried it in cold storage deep beneath a little-used military repository.  Now, after decades of festering in a forgotten sub-basement, the specimen has found its way out and is on a lethal feeding frenzy. Only Diaz knows how to stop it.”

    Fiction | Sept. 3
    For fans of: James Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman, Louise Penny
    “William Warwick has always wanted to be a detective, and decides, much to his father’s dismay, that rather than become a lawyer like his father, Sir Julian Warwick QC, and his sister Grace, he will join London’s Metropolitan Police Force.  After graduating from university, William begins a career that will define his life: from his early months on the beat under the watchful eye of his first mentor, Constable Fred Yates, to his first high-stakes case as a fledgling detective in Scotland Yard’s arts and antiquities squad.”

    “Noah Selvaggio is a retired chemistry professor and widower living on the Upper West Side, but born in the South of France. He is days away from his first visit back to Nice since he was a child, bringing with him a handful of puzzling photos he’s discovered from his mother’s wartime years. But he receives a call from social services: Noah is the closest available relative of an eleven-year-old great-nephew he’s never met, who urgently needs someone to look after him. Out of a feeling of obligation, Noah agrees to take Michael along on his trip.”

    For fans of: Ian McEwan, George Orwell, Joyce Carol Oates
    “When the van door slammed on Offred’s future at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale , readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her–freedom, prison or death.  With The Testaments , the wait is over.  Margaret Atwood’s sequel picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead.”

    Thrillers/Suspense | Sept. 10
    For fans of: Justin Cronin, Dean Koontz, Joe Hill
    “In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents–telekinesis and telepathy–who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, ‘like the roach motel,’ Kalisha says. ‘You check in, but you don’t check out.'”
  6. Kopp sisters on the march by Amy Stewart
    Mystery & Detective | Sept. 17
    For fans of: Mary Roach, Alan C. Bradley, Kerry Greenwood
    “In the fifth installment of Amy Stewart’s clever and original Kopp Sisters series, the sisters learn some military discipline–whether they’re ready or not–as the U.S. prepares to enter World War I.  It’s the spring of 1917 and change is in the air. American women have done something remarkable: they’ve banded together to create military-style training camps for women who want to serve. These so-called National Service Schools prove irresistible to the Kopp sisters, who leave their farm in New Jersey to join up.”
