From a New York Times best selling author, Ted Dekker, comes an intoxicating tale set amidst the shifting sands of the Middle East and the back roads of America. Blink of an Eye is part mystery, part romance, and the rare novel that engages issues as ancient as the earth itself and current as today's headlines.
Author Douglas Coupland brings together two Staples co-workers for the first story of love and a looming apocalypse set in the aisles of the office supply superstore. Bethany discovers Roger's notebook in the staff room only to discover he is writing mock diary entries pretending to be her. In The Gum Thief, Coupland electrifies his fans with witty, wise, and unforgettable writing.
The blockbuster bestselling author, Iris Johansen, delivers her most explosive novel yet. In Pandora's Daughter, a young physician tries to silence the voices in her head that bring her to the edge of madness and terror.
These novels will soon be on the New Book Shelf behind the circulation desk. Please ask a staff member if they are processed and ready for check out.
