Suspense readers can anticipate new releases from several old favorites. In Below the Belt by Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington agrees to recover a briefcase that contains sensitive revelations by a former CIA officer. Several well-heeled people, including a third party presidential candidate, are anxious keep Barrington from delivering the goods. Woods has “an unusually strong premise” and this time he “keeps his eye on the ball.” In Never- Never by James Patterson, a special crimes investigator learns that her brother has been charged with the grisly murder of three young women. But she cannot do much about it, because she has been reassigned ‘for her own good’ to a remote office and partnered with an officer who just might be a watchdog. More fast-paced entertainment from the prolific J-Patt.
