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

Blood Money
Blood Money by James Grippando (2000s)
This book is one of a series of novels featuring defense attorney Jack Swyteck. In this story, Jack takes on a pro bono case of a young mother accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. The mother, Sydney Bennett, is not a very likeable character, and reporter Faith Corso provides enough biased coverage to turn the country against Jack's client. James Grippando is a talented writer who produces well-crafted novels, and this is no exception. This is not one of my favorites from this author, but I still give it high marks. -- Added by ebammerlin on 02/21/2014

Run for Your Life
Run for Your Life by James Patterson (2000s)
This is the 2nd of the Michael Bennet NYPD novels, but it stands well on its own. You don't need to read the preceding novel to know what's going on in this story. In Run for Your Life, a killer is loose in New York city and seems to be targeting the elite. Michael Bennet, of course, is trying to stop him. What keeps the plot moving is the unpredictability of the killer. -- Added by ebammerlin on 02/21/2014

The Innocent by David Baldacci (2000s)
The book begins with a hit man who refuses to eliminate his target because something just doesn't seem right. His defiance of the kill order makes him the target. As he implements his escape plan, he encounters a 14-year-old girl who is also on the run trying to save her own life. The story is fast paced with a plot that keep the reading guessing. -- Added by ebammerlin on 02/21/2014

Cheating Lessons
Cheating Lessons by James M. Lang (2000s)
This book is really about how we learn. The premise is that we learn best when instruction is engaging, new knowledge is reinforced repeatedly, and testing measures are ample and a fair. The author makes the case that cheating can be curtailed by the way material is presented and tested, and he backs up his claim with published research. The book could have been hopelessly dry, but I found it to be an interesting read. -- Added by ebammerlin on 01/28/2014
