The Renegades by T. Jefferson Parker (Hardcover)

LIST PRICE $26.95 OUR PRICE $21.50 - Deputy Sheriff Charlie Hood-the hero of L.A. Outlaws-left readers clamoring for more, and in The Renegades, T. Jefferson Parker more than delivers. Some say that outlaws no longer exist, that the true spirit of the American West died with the legendary bandits of pulp novels and bedtime stories. Charlie Hood knows that nothing could be further from the truth. These days he patrols vast stretches of the new American West, not on horseback but in his cruiser. The outlaws may not carry six-shooters, but they're strapped all the same. Along the desolate and dusty roads of this new frontier, Hood prefers to ride alone, and he prefers to ride at night. At night, his headlights illuminate only the patch of pavement ahead of him: all the better to hide from the demons-and the dead outlaws-receding in his rearview mirror. But he doesn't always get what he wants- certainly not when he's assigned a partner named Terry Laws, a county veteran who everyone calls...

The Sign by Raymond Khoury (Hardcover)

RETAIL PRICE $26.95 OUR PRICE $21.50 - Set against a backdrop of ancient and modern religious conflict, this solid thriller from bestseller Khoury (The Last Templar) explores a number of current planetary preoccupations, from far-right political demagoguery to global warming. While in Antarctica covering the breakup of the continent's ice shelf, TV reporter Grace Logan and her crew are astounded to see a "bright, shimmering sphere of light" in the sky. They film this astronomical anomaly as it runs through a variety of tricks, then disappears. People around the globe wonder: is it a UFO? a sign from God? or some sort of techno trick fashioned by perpetrators unknown? After the blazing sign reappears over the Arctic, a possible link emerges to an old Catholic priest, who has heard on a desolate mountain in Egypt a portentous voice in his head ("Are you ready to lead your people to salvation?"). Unrelenting action and a suitably twisted ending compensate for the clichéd prose.

Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline (Hardcover)

Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline (Hardcover)

RETAIL PRICE $26.99 OUR PRICE $21.99 - Bestseller Scottoline’s 13th novel centered on the all-female Philadelphia law firm headed by Bennie Rosato (after Lady Killer) offers contrived situations and paper-thin characters on top of a premise that strains credibility. After Bennie’s evil identical twin sister, Alice Connelly, drugs her and leaves her to die, buried in a remote farm field, Alice takes advantage of her physical resemblance to Bennie to assume her identity at the law firm as well as gain access to her wealth and, eventually, her ex-boyfriend. Many will wonder why the ruthless Alice didn’t kill Bennie outright, leaving open the possibility that her victim will escape and attempt to foil her scheme. With authors like Lisa Unger proving that intelligent plotting and page-turning aren’t incompatible, this tired effort is unlikely to win Scottoline new converts. 500,000 first printing; author tour.
