10 New Books Coming Out This Week

Recommended Posts


Another week, another batch of books for your TBR pile. Happy reading, folks.



Laura Lippman, Dream Girl
(William Morrow)

“Lippman never stops twisting the plot into a deliciously intricate pretzel, right up to the jaw-dropping finale. This is both a beguiling look at the mysteries of authorship and a powerful #MeToo novel, but that’s only the tip of a devilishly jagged iceberg…”


Nicci French, What To Do If Someone Dies
(William Morrow)

“Crisply written, intelligently plotted and has plenty to say about the necessary selfishness of grief.”
–The Guardian


Joe Lansdale, Moon Lake

“Lansdale nails the storyline, nails the suspense, seriously nails the dialogue and has created yet another character worthy of a series.”


Laura McHugh, What’s Done in Darkness
(Random House)

What’s Done in Darkness is a beautifully paced story of a young woman’s courage to confront, both psychologically and by novel’s end literally, an evil that might again entrap her.”
–Ron Rash


Samantha Birbis, The Rise and Fall of Morris Ernst
(University of Chicago Press)

“A lively and illuminating portrait of one of the major figures in the history of American civil liberties. Barbas captures Ernst in all his glory and complexity, revealing how a man who was once the country’s leading liberal lawyer became a red-baiter and Hoover ally.”
–Thomas Healy,


David A. Price, Geniuses at War

“Price weaves a superb narrative, at once compelling and relatable. . . . Incredibly well-written and well-researched, this fast-paced book reads like a novel. Highly recommended to readers with an interest in World War II and 20th-century history, as well as anyone looking for an exciting story of code breaking and intrigue.”
–Library Journal


Sarah Stewart Taylor, A Distant Grave

“Complex, slow-burning…Taylor has crafted another believable and intriguing installment of Maggie’s story.”


V Castro, Queen of the Cicadas
(Flame Tree Press)

“Writing in breathtaking, atmospheric prose, Castro (Hairspray and Switchblades) merges brutal realism and supernatural terror to create a fierce, memorable tale of Mexican folklore and horror.”
–Publishers Weekly


Nicole Trop, The Boy in the Photo
(Grand Central)

“[An] exceptional psychological thriller… Trope pulls no punches in this tightly wound, emotionally harrowing story of parental abduction and the unhappy collision of hope with reality.”
–Publishers Weekly


Fabien Niciezca, Suburban Dicks
(G.P. Putnam’s Sons)

“Nicieza, a comics writer best known as co-creator of the wisecracking antihero Deadpool for Marvel, pivots to his first mystery here but keeps the comic-book energy and zaniness…Scathing and timely social commentary in a comic mystery.”
