New Adult Fiction: Wednesday, May 11

The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons, even if you have been vaccinated. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.

Here are a few of the new books that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

The Caretakers

Paris, 2015. A crowd gathers outside the Chauvet home in the affluent suburban community of Maisons-Larue, watching as the family’s American au pair is led away in handcuffs after the death of her young charge. The grieving mother believes the caretaker is to blame, and the neighborhood is thrown into chaos, unsure who is at fault—the enigmatic, young foreigner or the mother herself. The Caretakers is a suspenseful drama featuring complicated women. It’s a sensitive exploration of the weight of secrets, the pressures of country, community, and family—and misunderstandings that can have fatal consequences.

The Investigator

Letty Davenport is restless and bored in a desk job for U.S. Senator Colles. Letty’s ready to quit, but Colles offers her a carrot: feet-on-the-ground investigative work, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security. Several oil companies in Texas have reported thefts of crude. Who is selling the oil, and what are they doing with the profits? Rumor has it that a militia group, led by a woman known as Lorelai, might be involved. Colles wants to know if the money is going to them, and if so, what they’re planning. When the case turns deadly, they know they’re on the track of something bigger. Lorelai and her group have set in motion an explosive plan, and the clock is ticking down.

Three Debts Paid

A serial killer is roaming the streets of London, and Daniel Pitt’s university chum Ian, now a member of the police, is leading the search. When Ian learns that their old professor, Nicholas Wolford, has been charged with plagiarism, he takes the time to personally ask Daniel to defend their beloved teacher. For help catching who Londoners are now calling the “Rainy Day Slasher,” Ian also enlists Daniel’s good friend Miriam fford Croft, now back from school and a fully qualified pathologist. As the murders continue, Miriam can’t help but notice inexplicable links that have been overlooked by Daniel and Ian. In their concern to defend their former professor, are the two university friends blind to a far worse crime that has been committed?
