Eagland, Jane  
Wildthorn
Ages 14 and up. 19th-century England: Locked away in a madhouse. They strip her naked. Undo her whalebone corset. They take her identity, call her Lucy Childs. She has no one, nothing. But, she is still seventeen - still Louisa Cosgrove, isn't she? Who has done this unthinkable deed? Louisa must free herself, in more ways than one; be her true self, solve her own twisted mystery, while falling into an unconventional love.

Eisler, Barry  
John Rain #7: The Detachment
Colonel Scott Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, offering a multi-million dollar payday for the 'natural causes' demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who plan to launch a coup in the US. But for a job this big, Rain will need a detachment of other deniable irregulars: his partner Dox, Ben Treven, and Larison. These four lone wolf killers will have to survive presidential hit teams, secret CIA prisons, and a national security state as obsessed with guarding its own secrets as it is with invading the privacy of the populace. But first, they'll have to survive each other.
