A Season in Purgatory, by Dominick Dunne.

I just finished A Season in Purgatory, by Dominick Dunne. Would pair well with James Patterson novels.

A Game of Birds and Wolves, by Simon Parkin

By Melissa Jurgens, Library Assistant

Currently reading A Game of Birds and Wolves, by Simon Parkin, about the contribution of the Wrens in developing a war game which turned the tide for the Allies in the Battle of the Atlantic.  Fascinating and suspenseful, it shows how close Britain came to being starved into submission during WWII.

Writer, Soldier, Sailor, Spy, by Nicholas Reynolds

By Becky Kennedy, ILL Librarian

I recently re-read Writer, Soldier, Sailor, Spy, by Nicholas Reynolds, former director of the CIA museum.  The book explores Ernest Hemingway's connection with Russian intelligence during the Spanish civil war of the 1930's up to his death in 1961. I was fascinated by Hemingway's involvement with the anti-facists during the Spanish Civil War and his love for Cuba as communism took hold there. Hemingway fans will want to read it.
