“A Slow Fire Burning” by Paula Hawkins

A Slow Fire Burning  By Maribeth Vaughn/Daily Reporter Staff Writer /mvaughn@greenfieldreporter.com
A Slow Fire Burning

When a young man is found gruesomely murdered in a London houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. Laura is the troubled one-night-stand last seen in the victim’s home. Carla is his grief-stricken aunt, already mourning the recent death of yet another family member. And Miriam is the nosy neighbor, clearly keeping secrets from the police. Three women with separate connections to the victim. Three women who are, for different reasons, simmering with resentment. — Provided by the publisher.

“How to Make an Apple Pie from Scratch: In Search of the Recipe for Our Universe, from the Origins of Atoms to the Big Bang” by Harry Cliff

How... Apple Pie  By Maribeth Vaughn/Daily Reporter Staff Writer /mvaughn@greenfieldreporter.com
How to Make and Apple Pie from Scratch

“By an experimental physicist who works on the Large Hadron Collider, a mind-altering look at the foundational questions bedeviling modern physics, among them: Where does matter come from? Carl Sagan famously said, ‘If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.’ But what fundamental matter is the universe made of? What banged in the Big Bang? And how did that matter arise from nothing into the world we now know? In ‘How to Make an Apple Pie from Scratch,’ Harry Cliff–a University of Cambridge particle physicist, researcher on the Large Hadron Collider, and acclaimed science presenter–sets out in pursuit of answers.” — Provided by publisher.
