If you like heart-pounding non-stop action books...

Thank you for contacting the Central Rappahannock Regional Library for a
"Book Match". We love connecting readers with just the right book.

You requested books that "capture you from the beginning...(with)
excitement and adventure". I love heart-pounding, non-stop action
books, too. These types of books can range from laugh-out-loud funny to
seriously gruesome.

Some suggestions for you:

The Death and Life of Bobby Z. by Don Winslow. Facing life
imprisonment, Tim Kearney (who looks just like a legendary drug dealer)
cuts a deal to impersonate Bobby Z. His ticket out of prison just might
be the death of him. Fast-paced and funny.

The Charm School by Nelson DeMille. Mrs. Ivanova's school in Russia is
where future KGB agents are taught - by American POW's! - to be
red-blooded Americans.

Fatherland by Robert Harris. What if Hitler had won WWII? It is 1964,
and good Germans get ready to celebrate the Fuhrer's 70th birthday party
in this alternative history thriller.

Reservation Road by John Burnham Schwartz. Spell-binding tale of two
fathers, the one who lost his gifted son and the one who accidently
killed him.

Tell Me Your Dreams by Sidney Sheldon. Three beautiful women, three
brutal murders. The arrest of the suspected murderer leads to a trial
with a shocking and bizarre conclusion.

Cujo by Stephen King. A loveable St. Bernard turns encounters a rabbit
and turns into...something else. Stretches belief, but a book you
cannot put down.

Acts of Revision by Martyn Bedford. Gregory Lynn, aged 35, discovers
his school reports - mostly bad - and decides that they need to be, uhm,
revised. Creepy thrills!

Church of Dead Girls by Stephen Dobyns. A small town community is
ripped apart with the disappearance of three young girls.

I hope that some of these titles will keep you up at night! All of
these titles are available at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.
If you have a library card with us, we will be happy to put any or all
of the titles on hold for you.
