Great New Books

Run Away by Harlan Corben

This bombshell-laden thriller sees Wall Street financial adviser Simon Greene and his pediatrician wife having a perfect life by all outward appearances--except that they haven't seen their drug-addicted daughter, Paige, in six months. When by chance Simon spots Paige panhandling in Central Park, he approaches her, but Aaron Corval, her junkie boyfriend, who he believes is holding her against her will, confronts him, and the two get into a fight. Paige flees the scene. When Aaron later turns up dead, Simon and his daughter become suspects in his murder. Vowing to find Paige at any cost, Simon soon finds his search intertwined with a Chicago PI's case to locate a missing person. The breakneck pacing and audaciously intricate story line will have readers on the edge of their seats.

Celtic Empire by Clive Cussler

U.N. scientists in El Salvador are bloodily dispatched, ships collide on Detroit's waterways, raiders assail an archaeological site, and Dirk Pitt and his team discover that the connecting thread is a 3,000-year-old tale of an Egyptian princess. The settings are colorful, the characters appealing or despicable as needed, and the action is both implausible and fun.

The Fifth Doctrine by Karen Robards

The authorities have finally caught up with Bianca St. Ives, who rights the world's wrongs by stealing money back from swindlers, and they'll give her a break--if she goes undercover as a female hacker who stole intelligence from the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

Horizon by Barry Lopez

Ranging from western Oregon, the Arctic, and the Galápagos to Kenya's deserts, Australia's Botany Bay, and Antarctica's ice shelves, the author recalls some of his most significant worldwide jaunts. He also ventures back in time to chronicle prehistoric peoples on Canada's Skraeling Island, for instance, and a Native American emissary's experiences in isolationist Japan.


More than 37 million Americans snore regularly-meaning there’s an excellent chance that you or your partner keep one another up with awful buzz saw- like sounds. As you get older, increased weight and/or decreased throat muscle tone can cause your throat to narrow during sleep and trigger snoring. Here’s how to find relief: Lose weight; Sleep on your side; Elevate your head; try an OTC nasal strip; Don’t nod off with a nightcap. If your snoring doesn’t ease off despite these efforts and/or your snoring is accompanied by excessive daytime sleepiness, see your doctor to get evaluated for sleep apnea.
