The Pelican Brief
by John Grisham
The eagerly awaited new legal thriller by the author of The Firm. With the murder of two Supreme Court Justices the White House is in an uproar. The FBI is searching its files, scrambling for culprits. But a brainy and beautiful law student, Darby Shaw, discovers her own clues to the killer—clues that could topple the government. And take her with it. From the cool corridors of the White House to the zesty French Quarter in New Orleans, a novel that races to a stunning conclusion.

Treasures
by Belva Plain
The future looks full of promise for Eddy, Connie, and Lara Osborne—a brother and two sisters from Ohio. It's the high-flying 1980s, and Eddy is headed for stunning success on Wall Street. Connie relishes well-born suitors and fine homes in big citites. Only Lara, it seems will settle for the treasures close to home. But as all three discover, life is never predictable—and its richest rewards are sometimes found where we least expect them. A stirring new novel from a best-selling author.

Eye of the Storm
by Jack Higgins
Sean Dillon is a master assassin with cold eyes and nerves of steel. His client list reads like a who's who of international menace: the KGB, the PLO, the IRA. So in 1991, with the Gulf war in full bloom he is the top choice as hit man when Saddam Hussein decides to show the world he can strike anywhere. But when Dillon runs head-on into his old nemesis, a Special Forces hero, a fierce clash begins. Outstanding suspense from the author of The Eagle Has Flown.

The Island Harp
by Jeanne Williams
It's 1844 on the isle of Lewis in the Scottish Hebrides. Mairi MacLeod's family has lived there for generations, coaxing a living from the windblown moors and rocky coastlines. Then the unthinkable happens: a brutal eviction by a greedy landlord. Many of the islanders flee. But seventeen-year-old Mairi stays determined to overcome all obstacles—including her love for a man who can never be hers.
