Great New Books

The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver

A young woman has gone missing in Silicon Valley and her father has hired Colter Shaw to find her. The son of a survivalist family, Shaw is an expert tracker. Now he makes a living as a 'reward seeker,' traveling the country to help police solve crimes and private citizens locate missing persons. But what seems a simple investigation quickly thrusts him into the dark heart of America's tech hub and the cutthroat billion-dollar video-gaming industry. Encountering eccentric game designers, trigger-happy gamers and ruthless tech titans, he soon learns that he isn't the only one on the hunt: someone is on his trail and closing fast."

The Ghost Ships of Archangel by William Geroux

Popular depictions of World War II have been dominated by events such as D-Day and Pearl Harbor, but the day-to-day history of the conflict is also filled with chilling stories of loss and survival. This account of an Allied convoy that traversed the Barents Sea in July 1942 with much-needed supplies for Russia, recounts how the crew of four ships found themselves sailing through ice fields in the Arctic Ocean hoping to escape U-boats and the feared German battleship Tirpitz. While this event has become a forgotten moment in American military history, this critical expedition may have helped sustain Russia's resistance to the Nazis and how current events are changing the meaning of this mission in world history.

If She Wakes by Michael Koryta

A terrible car crash kills the engineer Tara Beckley is escorting on campus and leaves Tara herself unable even to twitch but aware that someone wants her dead. Meanwhile, insurance investigator Abby Kaplan realizes that this was no accident.

Spying on the South by Tony Horwitz

Sent by the rising-star New York Times across the 1850s American South, young travel writer Frederick Law Olmsted witnessed a region deeply divided from the rest of the country and fiercely defensive of slavery. Horwitz, tracked Olmstead's route (often authentically, via rail, riverboat, and horseback) to consider an America today that's equally divided and defensive of its values.


Additional uses for hand sanitizer (continued from last week): Get permanent marker off whiteboards and clothing-Write over the marker on the whiteboard with a dry-erase pen, then wipe with hand sanitizer…for clothes, dab at the stain instead of rubbing; Pretreat stains before laundering-just rub sanitizer in and let it sit for one to three minutes: Clean your keyboard, mouse, touchscreen and touchpad-use a microfiber cloth.

Stingy Schobel Says

Find an affordable hotel room (continued from last week): Just as you can set up fare alerts for airline tickets, you can do the same for hotels on the site HotelsCombined or with the app Hopper, which analyzes prices to tell you whether to book now or wait for a better discount. Also look for 15 to 20 percent discounts from both hotels and booking sites for non-refundable rooms booked in advance. If you can plan your trip for the off-peak or “shoulder” season ( like a beach town in the fall), you’ll enjoy lower hotel prices, and maybe even savings on airfare.
