Thomas Kelso
(The Mark Thurman Series) at Quigley's Next Door
Talk about "writing what you know," Navy veteran and physician Thomas Kelso is a practicing orthopedic surgeon in North Carolina who writes award-winning thrillers based on current innovations in medicine and science. In "Fractured," the first of the series, orthopedic trauma surgeon Mark Thurman and preeminent stem cell scientist Claire Hodgson develop a method to heal fractures in day. Testing their medical breakthrough on a former Navy SEAL sniper delivered to the ER with multiple gunshot wounds, they find themselves in a tangled web of espionage, extortion and revenge. The second book, "Hyperion's Fracture," finds the duo treating a three-year-old Thoroughbred with their revolutionary method, until life-threatening complications send Claire to a remote lab to track down a pharmaceutical discovery that may save the horse. When the scientists and the drug formula disappear, Thurman enlists an elite rescue team to pick up their trail, while a CEO and a drug lord have other plans for the breakthrough discovery and the horse's fate. And hot off the press, "Stability Island," where Thurman discovers a mysterious sphere that defies gravity and attracts the attention of the dangerous world of murder and espionage. In a globetrotting race against time, Thurman realizes that sometimes even a surgeon has to get his hands dirty.

Maureen Horwath
(Clues and Connections to Discovering Ancestors) at Caffe Piccolo
Have you promised yourself you'd climb your family tree this year? It might take a little longer ... try three decades! In her compelling account of the search for maternal ancestors, Maureen Dailey Horwath has created a genealogical "whodunit," complete with mysteries, clues, red herrings, and imagined characters that people her stories. Even though the "suspects" may be unrelated to the reader, the approach is a fine model for taking fledgling genealogists beyond "just the facts, ma'am."
