What We're Reading

Dangerous Minds
Janet Evanovich

A missing island, a Buddhist monk, and a militant wing of the National Park Service might sound like a joke to most people, but to Emerson Knight it sounds like an adventure. The eccentric (or maybe just crazy) billionaire has been asked by Wayan Bagus, a Buddhist monk, to help locate his missing island which is normally located near Samoa.
