This week we received some new Playaways that are perfect for this. Check out:

The Last Mile by David Baldacci. A convicted murderer is counting down the hours until his execution when he gets an unexpected reprieve. Another man has confessed to the killings. FBI agent Amos Decker takes a special interest in the case because it is strikingly similar to his own life. The confession may or may not be true, but it soon becomes obvious that there is something much bigger and more sinister going on. Decker will need all his skill to solve this one.

As Time Goes By from Mary Higgins Clark. Television journalist Delaney Wright is on the brink of stardom with her assignment to cover the sensational murder trial of a woman accused of killing her wealthy husband. But instead of celebrating her success, she is obsessed with finding her birth mother. Her friends Alvinah and Willy Meehan offer to help her in her search, but soon discover a shocking secret that they don’t want to reveal. Meanwhile, the trial continues and the evidence piles up against the accused widow. But there are secrets to be revealed there too, and Delaney’s search for the truth puts her life in danger.
