Hot off the Presses

beyond iceSeveral eagerly awaited fiction titles by popular author also arrived late last week.  In “Beyond the Ice Limit” by suspense writer Douglas Preston, the meteorite that crashed to earth in “The Ice Limit” is found out to be a deadly living organism—one that is rapidly growing. In “The Apartment” by drama queen  Danielle Steel, four young women drawn by chance share an apartment in NY.  Career and romantic crises ensue.  In “Slow Burn” by Ace Atkins, Boston PI Spenser is approached by a firefighter,  who is convinced that a recent fire that  took seven lives was arson.  Of all the writers continuing the late Robert Parker’s characters, Atkins is the best at evoking Parker’s distinctive voice and feel.   Younger readers will be looking for ‘The Hidden Oracle” by Rick Riordan, in which the god Apollo, cast down from Olympus, lands in NYC as a teenage boy and must learn to survive in the modern world.
