By James Patterson (Little, Brown $28)

NYPD Detective Michael Bennett it seems is the only agent who can possibly protect the President of the United States when he visits the UN in New York. Hmm, where was the Secret Service you’re asking? For this operation, protecting the Prez from an announced terrorist attack requires the services of a cop highly trained enough to “trace the source of a threat that could rip the country apart.” Patterson, the most prolific author of crime stories pens another thriller. 


By Tom Vanderbilt (Knopf  $26.95)

Look carefully at the two covers. Which color, Red or Blue, piques your interest the most? Why? Do you know? Vanderbilt has some ideas on why we make the choices we do; tea or coffee, beer or wine, etc. But sometimes he quotes a friend who, when asked what beer is his favorite, simply says, “the one in my hand.” He has thoroughly researched the subject and includes voluminous notes at the end.
