Come and check out these and some of the other new books and materials (or at least new to us) added to our library collection…
Kill Alex Cross by James Patterson

Micro by Michael Crichton and Richard Preston
Micro is the second posthumous book from Crichton. Apparently about a third of it was written before his death in 2008 and when it was found in his archives (along with 2009’s Pirate Latitudes, which we also have), his publisher hired author Richard Preston to finish the book based on Crichton’s notes and research.
