First-Degree Minecraft Arsonist


Nine Lives to Die by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown.  Another cat mystery.  The author phot is a picture of a cat.  Not this photo.

Invisible by James Patterson Literary Industries and David Ellis.  I'm pretty sure I read an Ellis novel before.  Let me check...nope.  The dude won an Edgar Award though, that's a big deal.  Patterson has a new author photo, I cannot see his watch in this one.

Cop Town by Karin Slaughter. I've never read a slaughter book.  I think this is her 17th novel.  Unless she did some ghost writing.  Oh, I remember her author photo.  He photographer did that thing where the face is in focus and everything else is in soft focus.  That's a neat effect.

The Arsonist by Sue Miller. A guy I know on the local volunteer fire department never joined the fire department until after he stopped working for the Sheriff's Department.  He used to investigate arson crimes and since arsonists may, and sometimes are, be firefighters he wanted to avoid that entanglement.

First-Degree Murder by Christine DeSmet.  Doesn't DeSmet teach at UW-Madison.  Let me check...yep, she does screenwriting and fiction and her author photo is a small black and white one.


Hard Choices by Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Jeez, she stepped in it when saying her family was broke after Pres. Clinton left office.

Learn to Program with Minecraft Plugins: create flying Creepers and Flaming Cows in JAVA by Andy Hunt.  Page 97 says, "List listOfStrings = new ArrayList();"
