With so many books and so little time it's hard to decide what to read. Paula takes the guessing out of book buying by providing readers with reviews on the books that matter.

The Librarian, by Larry Beinhart

One of the greatest challenges to any mystery or thriller writer is putting their protagonist in a perilous situation. Beinhart does an excellent job of building reasons that university librarian David Goldberg is on the run from the law and Homeland Security. He finds himself on Virginia's Ten Most Wanted Criminals list for bestiality! As with most political thrillers a willing suspension of disbelief is necessary. Put your skeptisism on hold and enjoy the journey, as The Librarian attempts to keep the presidential election from being hijacked by various political operatives. All the librarians are indicative of people you probably know.
