Oliver Harris is a new-to-our-library author with his Elliott Kane series starter, “A Shadow Intelligence.” There is a dark side to M16 that makes men like Elliot Kane volatile, inquisitive, and free-floating. When the woman he loves, Joanna Lake, another operative, vanishes without a trace Kane is forced onto center stage. Drawn even deeper into a realm of deception and conflicting agendas he moves from merely infiltrating events to steering them. He needs to find Joanna before the others hunting her do. The digital audiobook is available through Libby/Overdrive.

Newton, “Murder in Chianti” by Camilla Trinchieri, “Sixteen Horses” by Greg Buchanan, “The Women’s March: a Novel of the 1913 Woman Suffrage Procession” by Jennifer Chiaverini, “The Wicked Die Twice” by William W.
