Sulfur Springs (Cork O'Connor Mystery) by William Kent Krueger
[book cover]

On the Fourth of July, just as fireworks are about to go off in Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor and his new bride Rainy Bisonette listen to a desperate voicemail left by Rainy's son, Peter.

The message is garbled and full of static, but they hear Peter confess to the murder of someone named Rodriguez. When they try to contact him, they discover that his phone has gone dead. The following morning, Cork and Rainy fly to Coronado County in southern Arizona, where Peter has been working as a counselor in a well-known drug rehab center. When they arrive, they learn that Peter was fired six months earlier and hasn't been heard from since.

They head to the little desert town of Sulfur Springs where Peter has been receiving his mail, but no one in Sulfur Springs seems to know him. They do, however, recognize the name Rodriguez. Carlos Rodriguez is the head of a cartel that controls everything illegal crossing the border from Mexico into Coronado County. As they gather scraps of information about Peter, Cork and Rainy are warned that there is a war going on along the border. Trust no one in Coronado County is a refrain they hear again and again.

To Cork, Arizona is alien country. The relentless heat and absence of water, tall trees, and cool forests feel nightmarish to him, as does his growing sense that Rainy might know more about what's going on than she's willing to admit. And if he can't trust Rainy, who can he trust?

The Right Time by Danielle Steel
[book cover]

Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the mysteries she reads with her devoted father, and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that reflect skill, imagination, and talent far beyond her years.

After her father's untimely death, at fourteen Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she finds twenty-six mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift. Alex writes in every spare moment, gripped by the plots and themes and characters that fill her mind.

Midway through college, she has finished a novel and manages to find a seasoned agent, then a publisher; but as she climbs the ladder of publishing success, she resolutely adheres to her father's admonition: Men read crime thrillers by men only, and so Alexandra Winslow publishes under the pseudonym Alexander Green, her true identity known only to those closest to her, creating a double life that isolates her: her secret life as the mysterious and brilliantly successful Alexander Green, and her own life as a talented young woman, expose her to the envious, the arrogant, and Hollywood players who have no idea who she really is.

Always, the right time to open up seems just out of reach and would cost her dearly. Once her double life and fame are established, the price of the truth is always too high.

Available in regular print or large print.
