The Hit
The Hit by David Baldacci (2000s)
This book follows "The Innocent," the author's previous book that features the hit man Will Robie. A new female CIA assassin, Jessica Reel, is introduced in this book, and the interaction between Robie and Reel makes for a suspenseful story, but I thought "The Innocent" was a more interesting read. -- Added by ebammerlin on 03/07/2014

Cover Up
Cover Up by Peter Lance (2000s)
The author provides a documented account of the information that failed to be included in the 911 Commission Report. It's a disturbing story of disfunction, negligence, and criminal activity by individuals in the government for which there has been no accountability or punishment. -- Added by ebammerlin on 03/07/2014

All for Anna
All for Anna by Nicole Deese (2000s)
The story of a young woman haunted by guilt after a car accident that kills a young child. It's an engaging story that is very realistic - you really feel her pain and relate to her struggles. -- Added by fisherslisa on 03/07/2014

The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping in American History
The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping in American History by Judith Edwards (1930s)
this was a pretty brief book about the Lindbergh kidnapping- it seems clear that the wrong man was executed. if you're familiar with the case, as I was, I did not find any new info in this book, but if you're curious about one of the first times "crime of the century" was used, this would be a good start. -- Added by sg0307 on 03/07/2014

In Cold Blood
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (1950s)
I'd heard of the author before, not too much about this case. it seemed a good writeup of everything that happened. -- Added by sg0307 on 03/07/2014

The complete idiot's guide to impeachment of the president
The complete idiot's guide to impeachment of the president by Steven D. Strauss (1990s)
Being old enough to remember this spectacle the first time around, the book was a rehash. the author seemed a bit biased in the "everyone lies, only 1 got impeached for it" mode of the moveon.org crowd. Basically, if you were around for it the first time, with the media overload, there was not much new here. -- Added by sg0307 on 03/07/2014

How Not to Die
How Not to Die by Jan Garavaglia,M.D. (2000s)
I hadn't heard of the show before, but the book had several easy-to-read health advice blocks after stories of people who had ended up on the doc's table before their time due to homicide, accident, and deaths preventable by lifestyle changes (she has also had her own health scare- what was thought to be ovarian cancer turned out to be benign, but still, she does clearly understand why people don't want to hear bad news). -- Added by sg0307 on 03/07/2014

DRY MANHATTAN
DRY MANHATTAN by Michael A. LERNER (1920s)
I knew Prohibition was a failure (hint hint to our current drug czars), but this book was a mostly hilarious look at just how much it flopped in NYC- pretty much everyone, included schoolchildren, got in on harassing prohibition agents during useless raids. And some clubowners even made raids part of their stage acts. -- Added by sg0307 on 03/07/2014

Me Vs. Me
Me Vs. Me by Sarah Mlynowski (2000s)
This book reminded me of the movies Sliding Doors and Wish Upon a Star. The main character wishes she didn't have to choose between a career she's always wanted and her fiance. Then her wish comes true and she's living in both worlds. I like how they alternate and the ending was pleasing. -- Added by AnotherJessica on 03/06/2014

The Men's Guide to the Women's Bathroom
The Men's Guide to the Women's Bathroom by Jo Barrett (2000s)
This book was entertaining and had laugh out loud moments throughout. Fun and quick read, plus likable main character. -- Added by AnotherJessica on 03/06/2014
