I am currently reading "An Element of Risk" Don Easton's new release in the Jack Taggert series and I have also received Dave Butler's new release in the Jenny Wilson series "No Place For Wolverines". These were both released yesterday, Sat Oct 13/18 and are more recently hitting the shelves than the books on this list!
