 April 7, 2020.  Gallows View, by Peter Robinson.  One of the best mystery series in print, this is the first of the Inspector Banks novels.  Former London policemen, Chief Inspector Banks has relocated to the Yorkshire village of Eastvale where he finds evil and violence are not unique to large cities.  While the activities of a Peeping Tom and the murder of an elderly women do not appear to be linked, investigations delve into possible connections.  Lively and lucid, Robinson’s tales will draw you in to this award-wining series with more than a dozen entries.

May 5, 2020.  The Day the World Came to Town, by Jim Defede.  On September 11, 2001, thirty-eight jetliners bound for the United States were forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland, due to the closing of US airspace.  For nearly a week, some 6,600 distraught passengers and crew were dependent on the hospitality of a small community of less than 10,000.  The stories of generosity and kindness have become legendary, drawn from interviews with over 180 people and inspiring the Broadway musical hit “They Came from Away.”  Their actions affirmed the basic goodness of people.

June 2, 2020.  Rendezvous with Rama, by Arthur C. Clark.  Sample a science fiction treat with this award-winning, classic novel by the dean of the genre, Arthur C. Clark.  In the 22ed century, a huge object enters our solar system and a space team is sent to discover its origins and purpose.  Cylindrical and some thirty miles long, this intersteller spacecraft amazes the astronauts and planet-bound scientists alike as they prepare for humankind’s first encounter with alien intelligence.
