There's something about summer and escaping into another world with a great book. We recommend a thriller. Luckily, with your Dallas Public Library card, you can download eBooks instantly to enjoy without ever leaving your apartment. Here are three exhilarating options.
A new novel by Lisa Foley, The Guest List, takes the atmospheric coast of Ireland and throws its readers into a mystery involving a perfectly planned wedding, and a body. What could go wrong when you pair drinking with spotty cell phone service, growing resentment, and a remote location? Think Agatha Christie meets the celebrity, Instagram culture of today.
Don't pretend you've had enough James Patterson in your life. He's back with another great thriller. Seven murder victims have been in this once luxurious vacation getaway house. The evidence points toward a group of former Army Rangers, making it difficult for Major Jeremiah Cook to investigate. It seems like the entire Georgia town is trying to eliminate evidence and stop the crime from being solved. But why?
Last Girl Standing is the perfect summer read, featuring a popular clique and the decisions made by high school girls that still haunt them decades later. In high school, they were known as The First Five, until one of the girls dies trying to save a classmate who has fallen in a river embankment. At their ten-year reunion, the shock and mystery of this death have yet to dissipate, and the fortunes of the girls surrounding the event are sordid at best.
