A Clean Kill

by Ted Wood

There is no rest tonight for Reid Bennett, police chief of tiny Murphy's Harbor in Canada. Not if he keeps getting phone calls, that is. The first comes in from Amy Wilson. She's been brutally attacked on her arrival home from play rehearsal. The second has Reid breaking up a fight at a bar called Murphy's Arms. But the third call, about a dead body, is when things get complicated. The body belongs to one of the night's bar brawlers, an American tourist now stabbed to death in the road. It seems like there is an obvious murder suspect until another body shows up in the lake.Are these murders and the attack somehow intertwined? Reid must wade carefully through the evidence and the witnesses, all the while juggling pressure from a hostile city council and unwelcome reporters. Add in the town play, bear baiters, and American evangelicals, and Reid has his hands more than full. Thankfully, he has got his dog Sam by his side.

Clean Kill (Sniper Series #3)

by Jack Coughlin Donald A. Davis

On the heels of the New York Times bestselling Kill Zone and Dead Shot comes the most thrilling installment of the Kyle Swanson sniper saga yet. An attempt at peace in the Middle East is brutally shattered. Only Swanson can find out who is responsible, and why, before the world plunges into war. At an ancient castle in Scotland, Sir Geoffrey Cornwell is brokering an unprecedented peace agreement. Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and the Israeli foreign minister are ready to sign a historic treaty--until their meeting is crushed by a missile strike that leaves the foreign minister of Israel dead and the prince wounded. Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson is running covert missions in the mountains of Pakistan when he's called to the United Kingdom, and he arrives just as there is a follow-up terrorist attempt to kill the prince. The attackers aren't working for Al Qaeda--they are employed by foreign operatives determined to overthrow the government of Saudi Arabia and take the Saudi oil reserves by whatever means necessary. Meanwhile, out of hiding comes Juba, one of the most dangerous terrorists in the world. Juba is determined to exact revenge on his nemesis Swanson, who nearly took his life. With scenes of tremendous suspense that span the globe, Clean Kill puts Kyle Swanson in the sights of a group whose greed and vengeance have no limits. That ruthless ambition, however, also brings them into Swanson's sights, which is the wrong place to be.

A Clean Sweep

by David Berlinski

Clean Sweep

by Alison Haynes

Covering every room in the house, this guide is chock-full of advice on green living, especially as related to cleaning. Haynes, author of books on beauty and skin care, tackles a range of topics in great detail. Originally published in 2004 in Australia, this U.S. edition includes recipes for homemade beauty products and advice on fabric care. However, the datedness of the publication becomes apparent with Haynes's omission of new electronics and appliances, such as DVDs, iPods, and the popular front-loading washers. Organization and storage are barely covered, and the section on alleviating stress is rather skimpy. A marginal purchase at best. (Library Journal -Karen Ellis )

The Cleaner: A Thriller

by Paul Cleave

Joe is in control of everything in his simple life--both his day job as a janitor for the police department and his "night work." He isn't bothered by the daily news reports of the Christchurch Carver, who, they say, has murdered seven women. Joe knows, though, that the Carver killed only six. He knows that for a fact, and he's determined to find the copycat. He'll punish him for the one, then frame him for the other six. It's the perfect plan because he already knows he can outwit the police. All he needs now is to take care of all the women who keep getting in his way, including his odd, overprotective mother and Sally, the maintenance worker who sees him as a replacement for her dead brother. Then there's the mysterious Melissa, the only woman to have ever understood him, but whose fantasies of blackmail and torture don't have a place in Joe's investigation. Originally published in 2006 in Cleave's native New Zealand, where it was a finalist for the prestigious Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction, The Cleaner is a chilling and darkly funny thriller that will leave you clamoring for his next.

The Cleaner of Chartres

by Salley Vickers

'A lovely book . . . wise at heart and filled with colourful characters' Joanne Harris, author of ChocolatSalley Vickers, the top ten bestselling author of Miss Garnet's Angel and Dancing Backwards, returns with The Cleaner of Chartres, a perfect book club book, for readers who loved Joanne Harris's Chocolat. There is something special about the ancient cathedral of Chartres, with its mismatched spires, astonishing stained glass and strange labyrinth. And there is something special too about Agnès Morel, the mysterious woman who is to be found cleaning it each morning. No one quite knows where she came from - not the diffident Abbé Paul, who discovered her one morning twenty years ago, sleeping in the north porch; nor lonely Professor Jones, whose chaotic existence she helps to organise; nor Philippe Nevers, whose neurotic sister and newborn child she cares for; nor even the irreverent young restorer, Alain Fleury, who works alongside her each day and whose attention she catches with her tawny eyes, her colourful clothes and elusive manner. And yet everyone she encounters would surely agree that she is subtly transforming their lives, even if they couldn't quite say how. But with a chance meeting in the cathedral one day, the spectre of Agnès' past returns, provoking malicious rumours from the prejudiced Madame Beck and her gossipy companion Madame Picot. As the hearsay grows uglier, Agnès is forced to confront her history, and the mystery of her origins finally unfolds. The Cleaner of Chartres is a compelling story of darkness and light; of traumatic loss and second chances. Told with a sparkling wit and captivating charm, but infused throughout with deeper truths, it speaks of the power of love and mercy to transform the tragedies of the past. 'Subtle and utterly joyous. . . a contemporary moral and psychological drama every bit as absorbing as Miss Garnet's Angel' Sunday Times'A magical and at times sinister story about love, loss, secrets and forgiveness . . . with Chocolat-type charm' Scotland on Sunday 'If you're looking for a book to take you by surprise, Salley Vickers' latest is the perfect choice' PsychologiesSalley Vickers is the author of the word-of-mouth top 10 bestseller Miss Garnet's Angel and several other bestselling novels including Mr Golightly's Holiday, The Other Side of You and Dancing Backwards as well as a collection of short stories Aphrodite's Hat. She has worked as a cleaner, a dancer, a university teacher of literature and a psychoanalyst and is an Impac award winning novelist. She is currently a RLF fellow at Newnham College Cambridge and she divides her time between Cambridge and London.

The Cleanest Race: How North Koreans See Themselves and Why It Matters

by B. R. Myers

Understanding North Korea through its propaganda What do the North Koreans really believe? How do they see themselves and the world around them? Here B.R. Myers, a North Korea analyst and a contributing editor of The Atlantic, presents the first full-length study of the North Korean worldview. Drawing on extensive research into the regime's domestic propaganda, including films, romance novels and other artifacts of the personality cult, Myers analyzes each of the country's official myths in turn--from the notion of Koreans' unique moral purity, to the myth of an America quaking in terror of "the Iron General." In a concise but groundbreaking historical section, Myers also traces the origins of this official culture back to the Japanese fascist thought in which North Korea's first ideologues were schooled.What emerges is a regime completely unlike the West's perception of it. This is neither a bastion of Stalinism nor a Confucian patriarchy, but a paranoid nationalist, "military-first" state on the far right of the ideological spectrum.Since popular support for the North Korean regime now derives almost exclusively from pride in North Korean military might, Pyongyang can neither be cajoled nor bullied into giving up its nuclear program. The implications for US foreign policy--which has hitherto treated North Korea as the last outpost of the Cold War--are as obvious as they are troubling. With North Korea now calling for a "blood reckoning" with the "Yankee jackals," Myers's unprecedented analysis could not be more timely.
