Review:
I loved this book. The thing I love about Michael Crichton is that he takes REAL scientific studies, theories, and practices and he throws them into "what-if" and often worse-case scenarios. This book follows both the enigma of bees and their behavior along with what we know about nanotechnology and computer programming. It's really a great thriller and it was a total page-turner.

Book description
The death of a teenage girl almost two decades ago comes back to haunt all of L.A.-and detective Harry Bosch-in this spellbinding new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl who had disappeared from her home was later found dead with a single gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, and although detectives on the case found clues that pointed toward murder, no one was ever charged. Detective Harry Bosch, newly returned to the LAPD with the job of closing unsolved cases, gets the report of a new DNA match that makes the case very much alive again.

Book description
When a high-powered gallery owner collides with a wildly offbeat artist, it’s the perfect recipe for disaster. But in her 63rd bestselling novel, Danielle Steel proves that when two hopelessly mismatched people share a love for art, a passion for each other, and a city like Paris, nothing is truly impossible…or is it?Everything Sasha does is within the boundaries of tradition. Liam is sockless in December. Sasha is widowed, a woman who knows she was lucky enough to be married to the most wonderful man in the world and thankful for every moment they had. Liam is half in and half out of a marriage that only a “wacky” artist could manage, and that his own impossibly impulsive behavior has helped tear apart. But while Sa...

Book description
In 1956, an airplane crash left the remains of 172 passengers scattered among the majestic cliffs of the Grand Canyon -- including an arm attached to a briefcase containing a fortune in gems. Half a century later, one of the missing diamonds has reappeared . . . and the wolves are on the scent. Former Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is coming out of retirement to help exonerate a slow, simple kid accused of robbing a trading post. Billy Tuve claims he received the diamond he tried to pawn from a mysterious old man in the canyon, and his story has attracted the dangerous attention of strangers to the Navajo lands -- one more interested in a severed limb than in the fortune it was handcuffed to; another willing to murder to keep ...
