Fiction

"The Innocent," by David Baldacci

It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C., but something about this mission doesn't seem right. Robie does the unthinkable and refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people. Fleeing the scene, he crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a fourteen-year-old runaway from a foster home. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can't walk away. Even worse, the more he learns, the more he's convinced she is at the center of a vast cover-up that stretches to unimaginable levels of power.

"The Witness," by Nora Roberts

The daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man's seductive accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security systems, and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. Her reserve intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason, leaving him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

"The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods," by Hank Haney

Hank Haney was one of the very few people allowed behind the curtain during his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods. When their coaching relationship began, Tiger - only 28 years old - was already judged by the sporting press as one of the best golfers ever. What Hank soon came to appreciate was that Tiger was one of the most complicated individuals he'd ever met, let alone coached. Toward the end of their time together, Tiger's focus began to blur and Hank saw signs in his behavior that he had developed a conflicted relationship with the game. Along with his 2009 scandal, this added up to a big miss from which Hank couldn't save Tiger.
