The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen
Julia Hamill is both shocked and repulsed when her shovel unearths a human skull while she's gardening. Boston medical examiner Maura Isles identifies the remains as that of a woman murdered nearly two centuries ago. Harvard Medical School, 1830: A serial killer is leaving corpses in his wake, but medical student Norris Marshall is suspected. To prove his innocence, he enlists classmate Oliver Wendell Holmes to help him track down a maniac. Now, centuries later, it's up to Maura to determine how the bloody game ended.

Bishop at the Lake by Andrew M. Greeley
Archbishop Malachi Nolan has designs on the Diocese of Chicago despite the fact that Blackie Ryan is in line for the post. It's the Nolan family succession that nearly costs the Archbishop his life however, as children and grandchildren feud over distribution of the still very- much-alive patriarch's wealth. Malachi is the only family member who doesn't have a stake in the quarrel, so why would someone be targeting him? That's what Blackie Ryan intends to find out before his rival is sent prematurely to meet his maker.

Age of Turbulence by Alan Greenspan
Alan Greenspan worked hard in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001 to ensure America didn't plunge into economic meltdown. He had good reason to fear, since his first major crisis was in October 1987 when the stock market crashed just weeks after he took the reins of the Federal Reserve Board. This is his story, as well as of how the global economy works, how we got here, and the challenges we face ahead.
