Radiant Angel by Nelson DeMille

Is Russia a forgotten enemy of the US – just a remnant from the cold war? Has the “sleeping bear” been awakened and reinvigorated by Russian President Putin? Does this new Russia want to flex its muscles in a way that would be devastating to the U.S.? These are just some of the questions Federal Agent John Corey must answer in Nelson DeMille’s latest book, “Radiant Angel”.  This novel begins with Agent Corey being assigned to follow the Russian U.N. Diplomats in New York in what seems like a routine assignment. A problem quickly rises as Corey loses them and now must find them and figure out what they are scheming.  From page one of this seventh John Corey book, the reader will be captivated by Corey’s detective skills, undercover work, dedication, wit, and questions about US National Security.  An excellent international thriller.

Finders Keepers by Stephen King

The second book in King’s trilogy, Finders Keepers picks up a few years after the Mercedes killer’s murder spree. Young Peter Saubers, whose father was disabled in one of the killer’s rampages, finds an old trunk full of money and notebooks. His father’s out of work, still recovering from his injuries while his mother’s work hours have been reduced. Then, like manna from heaven, an anonymous envelope of money arrives in the mail every month for several years, offering just enough financial breathing room for the family to inch their way out of debt. Peter’s fascination with the contents of the notebooks and his growing understanding of the notebooks’ importance lead him into a world of obsession where some people will do anything to get their hands on them. Meanwhile, odd things happen at the nursing home where Brady Hartsfield, the Mercedes killer, resides.

Finders Keepers’ suspenseful handling of how obsession affects people makes for a satisfying read.
