Gigi Pandian - The Accidental Alchemist
Unpacking her belongings in her new hometown of Portland, Oregon,
herbalist and reformed alchemist Zoe Faust can't help but notice she's
picked up a stowaway. Dorian Robert-Houdin is a living, breathing
three-and-half-foot gargoyle--not to mention a master of French
cuisine--and he needs Zoe's expertise to decipher a centuries-old text.
Zoe, who's trying to put her old life behind her, isn't so sure she
wants to reopen her alchemical past . . . until the dead man on her
porch leaves her no choice. Includes recipes.

Michael Sears - Long Way Down
He approached me in the street—bone-thin, gray-bearded, holding
out a small envelope. “The man said you’d give me five bucks for it.”
Inside was a one-word message: RUN.
Two years in a federal prison has changed Jason Stafford, is still
changing him, but one thing it has taught him as a financial
investigator is how to detect a lie. He doesn’t think Philip Haley is
lying. An engineer on the verge of a biofuel breakthrough, Haley has
been indicted for insider trading on his own company, and Stafford
believes him when he says he’s been set up. Haley does indeed have
enemies. He is not a nice man. Doesn’t make him a criminal.
It does make him dangerous to be around, though. The deeper Stafford
investigates, the more secrets he starts to uncover, secrets people
would kill for. And that’s exactly what happens. Soon, it is Stafford
himself who is under attack and, worse, his family—his fiancée, his
young son—and he is a fugitive, desperately trying to stay one step
ahead of both the killers and the law.
