THE BONE TREE By Greg Iles, William Morrow $27.99

Continuing his exciting trilogy of crime, corruption and murder right from where he left us in “Natchez Burning,” Iles reveals the exciting escape from certain death of Mayor Penn Cage and his fiancée’ Caitlin Masters, from one of the KKK thugs. Together, the two hurry to find his father, the beloved Dr. Tom Cage who, incredibly, is charged with murdering his long-ago African American nurse. Now, we learn the secrets of the Bone Tree – a place where many are taken to die and never found. Meanwhile FBI agent John Kaiser is determined to capture Dr. Tom who he believes inadvertently learned a secret about the assassination of President Kennedy from mobster Carlos Marcello. Both father and son Cage as well as Caitlin are constantly on guard and on the run in this unstoppable thriller. There are more secrets and surprises revealed in this second volume and the third will surely bring an exciting conclusion. We’ll find it hard to wait. 



NYPD RED 3 By James Patterson & Marshall Karp, Little, Brown $28

NYPD RED is the elite, highly trained task force created to “Protect the rich, serve the famous and hunt the guilty.” No wonder top Detectives Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald are assigned to billionaire businessman Hunter Alden Jr.’s mansion to investigate the beheading of his longtime chauffeur and the disappearance of his 18-year-old son Tripp (aptly named perhaps for his wildly irresponsible behavior.) Hunter Sr., an even bigger billionaire than his son, adores his grandson Tripp and desperately wants him found. The detectives want to satisfy both, solving the chauffer’s murder and the disappearance of Tripp who does everything to make their job even harder.
