The Expo Files: Articles By The Crusading Journalist
by Stieg Larsson

While Stieg Larsson is best-known in Canada as the crime fiction writer of the Millennium Trilogy, he was first and foremost a prolific journalist committed to exposing Neo-Nazis and far-right movements in Sweden. The Expo Files is a collection of Larsson's well-researched, insightful, thought-provoking articles and essays that are as relevant today in what they articulate about far-right and populist movements, racism, and anti-democratic ideology as they were when they were written.

by Matthew Bin

This compelling novel about a World War Two-era Canadian fighter pilot chronicles his final four missions while he was suffering from what would today be recognized as post-traumatic stress. The tale of his struggle to be released from flying further missions and the shame of being labelled a coward brings to light one tragic consequence of war on those who served.

The Couple Next Door
by Shari Lapena

A baby goes missing, and a police investigation immediately focuses on the parents. As the investigation unfolds, blemishes start to appear in the seemingly dewy life of the young couple. Each new revelation of truth or lie adds a new plot wrinkle that will keep you reading, long after you should have turned your bedside light off.

The Case Against Fragrance
by Kate Grenville

If you've ever developed a headache in the cleaning product aisle, or from someone's too liberal use of body spray, you'll want to read this book. Kate Grenville has produced a well-researched cautionary tale about the dangers of toxic chemicals that surround us everyday in scented body products, cosmetics, deodorants, laundry and cleaning products, and even baby products. Grenville's investigation discloses some of the ingredients that can lead to headaches, skin rashes, and nervous system disorders; relates laboratory testing methods that fail to protect consumers; and discusses chemical effects in the environment from substances known to be "gender bending" or carcinogenic. Grenville makes a convincing case that will send you to your bathroom and laundry room shelves for a cleansing purge.

The Wolf that Never Sleeps: A Story of Baden-Powell
by Marguerite De Beaumont

An interesting biography about Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Girl Guides and Boy Scouts. It had lots of stories that I have never before heard in the Guiding and Scouting circles. I learned lots about the founder's experience and about it contributed to and shaped the organizations he started over a hundred years ago.
