9781587332333, $16.95,

It has been more clear than ever that our system is flawed. "A Better Congress: Change the Rules, Change the Results: A Modest Proposal" is a collection of ideas from Joseph Gibson who holds that much of the corruption and problems with congress comes from bloat, comes from greed, and comes from strong partisan divide. Offering his many ideas and why he believes they would work, "A Better Congress" is a thoughtful and recommended read, not to be missed.

Is it your family or the world? "Witch Hunt" tells the story of Leigh, a woman married into the Hawthorne family. When she finds that it's a family of witches, she finds herself in conflict, between the loyalty of her family and the witch hunt that seems to be coming for her as well as her family. A riveting story of magic and morality, "Witch Hunt" will prove very hard to put down.

Politics of Death

Marco Conelli


1663 Liberty Drive, Bloomington, IN 47403

9781450266284, $10.95,

The drive for power so often leaves dead bodies in the wake. "Politics of Death" is the third in the Matthew Livingston series circling Matthew as he enters into the world of politics and finds it trickier than a murder mystery. But both soon overlap, as author Marco Conelli draws on his own experience as an NYPD detective to create a highly enticing story. "Politics of Death" is not to be missed, highly recommended.
