Bookbites: Intrigue, mystery, employee engagement, and horror

November 400CP Is Missing
by Anderson Harp

The PT Chevron Pacific Gulfstream banks toward the north after lifting off from the international airport at Kuala Lumpur. The oil-exploration team has reason to celebrate: The new  oil field outside of Minas will be the biggest reserve in the history of Indonesia. But suddenly the jet drops abruptly, then turns sharply west on a path similar to that of a well-known  commercial airliner from the recent past, descends through radar coverage . . . and disappears. Marine lieutenant colonel and D.A. Will Parker hears from the wife of a former Marine buddy. Her husband is gone. The FBI and CIA are of little help, but it's an assignment Will can't refuse.

Held in Slumber
by Angela Parish

Will rest find you tonight? Gary, a high school art teacher, suffers from insomnia. For ten years he's been keeping the struggle alive for his missing sister Kelly, who disappeared
without a trace. With the help of an experimental pill, he finds a dangerous connection between the living and dead -- caught in the clutches of his drug-induced dreams and corrupting him with  visions of what really happened. Will the clues be enough? Meanwhile, an FBI agent follows the tracks of a serial killer, and the closer he gets, the more intense Gary's dreams become. What he uncovers about Kelly's disappearance and the person responsible for it is more than anyone could have imagined.

The X Factor of Employee Engagement
by Demi Gray

Demi Gray has dedicated much of her career to studying what makes employees tick and motivates them to optimum performance. This book takes readers through six key principles that
serve as a frame of reference for attaining employee motivation: leadership influence, management support, applicable resources, flexibility and autonomy, recognition and proper compensation. The book is written for leaders who care about healthy workplace cultures, collaborative work environments, and committed team members.
The author is raising lots of valid points and important views on employee engagement and why it's beneficial in the workplace. I look forward to using this book as a team-building tool.

Double Vision
by Hamelin Bird

For fans of Stephen King, Michael Koryta, and Lawrence Block. In this haunting new horror thriller featuring a down-and-out detective, solving the case of a lifetime and tracking down a dangerous killer is only half of the story.

Off the wagon and confronted with the pain of divorce and loss of his family, Michael Lunsmann hits rock bottom. But when he wakes up after a blackout binge with a bullet in his arm and no memory of how it got there, he’s thrown headfirst into a supernatural murder mystery. Now, four teens are dead at the hands of an elusive madman, and Lunsmann may be the only hope for justice.
