On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew and the Goy Boy
by Michael Kroft

Once an amusing extrovert with a reputation as a prankster, Avriel Rosen is about to enter his senior years as a stoic, thirty-year converted introvert who hates change, has little to no interest in people and is more than content to have his wife sit at the navigator’s seat of his life.

Since he had become a practising introvert, there has been little change in his life. The few changes that he had experienced, his wife had walked him through them, including the recent move to a much smaller home in a lower-middle-class neighborhood where he lives directly next-door to a bigot / racist, whose nine-year old son addresses him as Mr. Jew. Avriel had seen the move coming, and he is very much aware of the enormous change to come sometime in the, hopefully, far off future; though, he refuses to give it any attention. That change will come on slowly and painfully and will eventually leave him charting his own life’s route.

Based during the mid-seventies in Halifax, Nova Scotia, On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Jew And The Goy Boy follows the growth of the seemingly unlikely friendship between Avriel and his nine-year old neighbour and its influence on both as the old man's world of habitual routine begins to implode while, at the same time, on a collision course with the chaotic world of the innocent child, its troubled mother and vengeful father.

U Got to Have U Some Fun
by
Andrew Harkless

DescriptionJohn Smith, a recently divorced man and as average as his name implies, arrives home from his job at a rubber band factory to find a ticket for a cruise ship vacation in his mailbox. He assumes the ticket is from his son because Carson made him promise to break free of his boring life and, for once, travel and have some fun and the note included simply said, “It's Time.” John is puzzled because his beloved, only child was killed six months ago while serving in the Army in Afghanistan. In order to fulfill the promise John made to Carson and though filled with anxiety about leaving his routines and comfort zone, he goes on the cruise.

Election Day
by
Jim Moore

DescriptionWhat if, just days after the national election, the man who would be president and his chosen running mate are dead? Who becomes president and how is that person chosen? Our founding fathers possessed keen insight for solving such contingencies, a fact made clear in this political thriller by the author of Ride the Jawbone. Moore throws in four would-be kingmakers, an unscrupulous, power-hungry egomaniac who will stop at nothing to become president, and an earnest rancher/lawyer from Montana, Bobby Hobaugh, who becomes a pawn in an election scheme. It all adds up to an unforgettable story that will change the way you look at our process for choosing those who would lead us.

The Honor of Spies
by
W.E.B. Griffin

DescriptionFrogger's parents are in Frade's custody in Argentina, because of their involvement in a secret German plan to establish safe havens for senior Nazi officials in South America, and the younger Frogger has agreed to help find out what they know. Even more important, however, is the secret within the secret. Before he was captured in Africa, Frogger was part of a conspiracy; its goal: to assassinate Adolf Hitler. If the OSS can use his knowledge and connections to nudge that plot along, even just a little bit? they may be able to end this war right now. But Frade is not the only one who knows about the Froggers. Even as he stands there in Mississippi, a troop of Germans and Argentinians, led by a Colonel Juan Perón, is on its way to kill the parents and, after them, Frade himself. His career in the OSS may have been brief?but it may just be about to be over. Filled with the special flair that Griffin?s fans have come to expect, The Honor of Spies is another rousing adventure from one of our finest storytellers.
