Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder 

Available as Print | Large Print | eBook | eAudiobook 

From the North Dakota beet fields to California’s Natural Forest campgrounds to Amazon’s Texas CamperForce program, employers have discovered a new low-cost labor pool: transient older Americans. With Social Security coming up short, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands, forming a growing community of migrant laborers dubbed “workampers.” In a secondhand vehicle christened “Van Halen,” Bruder hits the road to tell an eye-opening tale of the American economy’s dark underbelly.

Murder in Old Bombay by Nev March 

Available as Print | eBook | eAudiobook 

In 1892, Bombay is the center of British India. Nearby, Captain Jim Agnihotri lays in Poona military hospital recovering from a skirmish on the wild northern frontier, with little to read but newspapers. The case that catches Jim’s attention is being called the crime of the century: two women fell from the busy university’s clock tower in broad daylight. Moved by the widower of one of the victims – his certainty that his wife and sister did not commit suicide – Jim approaches the Framjis and is hired by the Parsee family to investigate what happened that terrible afternoon. But in a land of divided loyalties, asking questions is dangerous. Jim’s investigation disturbs the shadows that seem to follow the Framji family and triggers an ominous chain of events.
