Apprentice in Death (In Death #43)
Author: J.D. Robb
Call Number: M ROBB
Summary: The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy.  Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink.  The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher.  As random as random can be.  Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time on the force, but never one like this.  A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled.  And though the list of locations, where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

Downfall (Joanna Brady #13)
Author: J.A. Jance
Call Number: 
Summary: With a baby on the way, sudden deaths in the family from which to recover, a re-election campaign looming, and a daughter heading off for college, Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady has her hands full when a puzzling new case hits her department, demanding every resource she has at her disposal.  Two women have fallen to their deaths from a small nearby peak, referred to by Bisbee locals as Geronimo.  What’s the connection between these two women?  Is this a case of murder/suicide or is it a double homicide?  And if someone else is responsible, is it possible that the perpetrator may, even now, be on the hunt for another victim?
