Russ Thomas, Nighthawking
(Putnam)

“Outstanding. . . Thomas adeptly develops his diverse cast, but the novel’s real power lies in its intricate structure—the mystery surrounding the body is impressively deep, the various levels of tension are relentless, and every chapter ends with a narrative punch to the face. This police procedural is virtually unputdownable.”
Publishers Weekly

Steve Berry, The Kaiser’s Web
(Minotaur)

“Berry keeps finding enticing alternate-history mysteries for Malone to solve . . . Keep ‘em coming.”
Booklist

smoke-194x300.jpg

Joe Ide, Smoke
(Little Brown)

“Ide has displayed a rare ability to mix dark comedy and gut-churning drama…mixmaster Ide’s compulsion to blend light and dark (Isaiah’s confrontation with the serial killers, while gruesome, takes the form of “a slapstick movie shot in a burning insane asylum”) affects the two plots in surprising ways, again producing an emotion-rich form of character-driven tragicomedy, but one in which peril forever loiters in the shallows.”
Booklist

Quiet-in-her-Bones-199x300.jpg

Nalini Singh, Quiet in Her Bones
(Berkley)

“Singh sustains tension throughout, delivering a lushly written, multilayered mystery that will keep readers guessing. Susan Isaacs fans, take note.”
Publishers Weekly

the-privilege-195x300.jpg

D.W. Buffa, The Privilege
(Polis)

“Buffa’s characters are compelling; the dialogue authentic and well crafted. With the current political upheaval, Buffa’s newest novel hits home in more ways than one. The author draws on his own experience as a criminal defense attorney to render realistic courtroom proceedings. Highly recommended for lovers of legal and political thrillers.”
Library Journal

bone-fire-199x300.jpg

György Dragomán, The Bone Fire
(HMH) (Trans. Ottilie Mulzet)

“A poignant coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of regime change.”
Kirkus Reviews

we-own-this-city-199x300.jpeg

Justin Fenton, We Own This City
(Random House)

“Baltimore Sun reporter Fenton, whose coverage of the Baltimore riots that followed the death of Freddie Gray led to a Pulitzer Prize nomination, debuts with a searing look at that city’s recent police corruption scandal. . . . Fenton’s detailed narrative makes the tragic consequences of the [Gun Trace Task Force’s] graft palpable.”

Publishers Weekly
