Best of BARD: January 2018

Silvija Staff Image

This year started with Fire and Fury! We received so many calls from our patrons who wanted to listen to this book, we had to hire 100 little gnomes who downloaded it day and night!

And hey, James Patterson and Alex Cross are also here! As well as James Patterson and Ashwin Sanghi!

And THEN, the savvy LAPD cop encounters Hollywood glitz, a homicide blitz and almost nothing that is what it seems to be.

Finally, The Switch by Joseph Finder involves careless security breaches by government officials, Russian spies, Edward Snowden parallels and so on...

Which brings us back to the beginning…
