Duel to Death! Watson vs. Mitchard!

Wisconsin Blood Battle!

American Boys by Larry Watson. The Milwaukee Mauler enters the cage carrying his latest novel. A 1962 setting featuring a young guy with a "feverish longing for [a] mysterious woman." If Watson survives he will be here, in our library, on November, 12th.

Non-Wisconsin Fiction

The Race by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott. "An Isaac Bell Adventure." Something to do with airplanes.

The Vault by Ruth Rendell. I've read good things about Rendell's novels but have not yet read one of them. Murder mystery set in London.

New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb. An In Death novel.


24: Season 8 starring Kiefer Sutherland and The Weaver Stance. Secret agent fights secret bad guys.

Cell 211 starring Spaniards. Prison guard on his first day at work gets knocked unconscious. Guard awakes to find out a riot has occurred and he is in the middle of it. Guard has to pass as a prisoner.

Bereavement starring Michael Biehn and John Savage. I ordered this because Biehn and Savage are both in it. In 1989 a 6-year-old is kidnapped by a serial killer who teaches him to kill.
