Jerry, a novice Campus Security patrolman at a major research and teaching university, discovers a body in one of the engineering laboratories, an apparent accident. As he explores the academic environment, he encounters elaborate student pranks. He is led through a series of very technical clues by graduate students. These clues may indicate that the accident was really an ingenious murder. Is it possible that Jerry is being led down the garden path in the biggest prank yet? As he works through his first year as campus cop, the contrasts between public and university ethics and notions of justice become more obvious. The results of crime range from death, through a good chuckle, to public fame. Justice becomes confused as Jerry gradually develops a new understanding of the meaning of "to protect and serve." With the exception of the possible murder, all the events and personalities are real, based on the author's 40 year experience in higher education. The names of places and people have been changed to protect the innocent (and guilty.)

Edge of Dawn: A Midnight Breed Novel  by Lara Adrian
Release date: Feb. 26, 2013 |  Publisher: Delacorte Press |  Genre: Romance
Lara Adrian (Author)
ISBN: 0345532600 | ISBN-13: 9780345532602 | Format: Hardcover
In this pulse-pounding and thrillingly sensual novel, New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns to the mesmerizing world of the Midnight Breed, following new characters into a dark future where an uneasy peace can unravel into war—and a great betrayal can mask an all-consuming love.
 
Twenty years after the terror of First Dawn—when mankind learned that vampires lived secretly among them—the threat of violence reigns as the two species struggle to coexist. The only group preserving the fragile harmony is the Order, an elite cadre of Breed warriors dedicated to protecting humans and vampires alike. And in this precarious world of torn loyalties and shattered trust, Mira, a fiery squad captain, finds that every fight bears an intensely personal cost.
 
Raised among the Order, Mira has always believed in the warrior’s code of swift—and even lethal—justice. But the one thing she desires more than the Order’s hard-won acceptance is Kellan Archer, a sexy but troubled Breed fighter. In love with him since childhood, Mira once broke through his tough exterior during an unexpected night of rapture, but the next day he mysteriously disappeared, never to return.
 
Kellan didn’t think he would ever see Mira again—or have to confront the truth of why he left. After abandoning the Order years ago, he now leads a band of human rebels intent on carrying out their own vigilante rule of law. Yet a high-profile kidnapping assignment brings him face-to-face with the past he sought to avoid, and the striking woman he has tried desperately to forget. And as tensions mount and the risk of bloodshed grows, Kellan and Mira must take sides—between the competing missions that dominate their lives, and the electrifying passion that claims their hearts.

Death of a Hero  by  Richard Aldington
Release date: Feb. 26, 2013 |  Publisher: Penguin Classics |  Genre: General Fiction
ISBN: 0143106872 | ISBN-13: 9780143106876 | Format: Paperback
One of the great World War I antiwar novels—honest, chilling, and brilliantly satirical Based on the author's experiences on the Western Front, Richard Aldington's first novel, Death of a Hero, finally joins the ranks of Penguin Classics. Our hero is George Winterbourne, who enlists in the British Expeditionary Army during the Great War and gets sent to France. After a rash of casualties leads to his promotion through the ranks, he grows increasingly cynical about the war and disillusioned by the hypocrisies of British society. Aldington's writing about Britain's ignorance of the tribulations of its soldiers is among the most biting ever published. Death of a Hero vividly evokes the morally degrading nature of combat as it rushes toward its astounding finish.

ISBN: 0451239482 | ISBN-13: 9780451239488 | Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Catherine Anderson’s newest installment in the Harrigan family series, an unlikely couple is brought together under circumstances that defy all reason....

Tragedy has struck the Harrigans—Quincy’s beloved sister-in-law Loni is gravely ill and nearing death. Quincy, like his brothers, feels helpless to save her, and the clock is ticking. Then, with perfect timing, a winsome red-haired woman named Ceara O’Ceallaigh mysteriously appears on Quincy’s property and insists that Loni can be cured. Only Quincy, she says, as the sole remaining Harrigan bachelor, can make it happen—by marrying Ceara.

To Quincy, Ceara is a charming and quite likely deranged spinner of dreams who can’t prove she’s telling the truth. But how can he pass up any attempt to restore Loni to health? Against all better judgment, he decides to marry Ceara. Maybe he’s making the worst mistake of his life. Or maybe he’s opening himself up to possibilities that defy explanation...and will send him on a miraculous journey toward enough love to last forever.
