Make sure these stellar new mysteries are on your shelves today!

MURDER AT THE 42ND STREET LIBRARY by Con Lehane
The first book in an amazing new series that features crime at some of America’s most famous institutions of higher reading! Ray Ambler, the curator of the library’s crime fiction collection, joins forces with NYPD homicide detective Mike Cosgrove in hopes of bringing a murderer to justice. “Lehane awards his previous detective, bartender Brian McNulty, a cameo but focuses on the complicated Ray, who looks like a promising newcomer in the talented-amateur ranks.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

HARD LIGHT by Elizabeth Hand
In the third Cass Neary mystery, the offbeat photographer is reunited with her long-lost lover, Quinn O’Boyle, who is wanted by both Interpol and the Russian mob. When Quinn then fails to show at their rendezvous point, Cass is fearful she’ll be the next to disappear, and goes on the run. “This great adventure story starring a troubled but intriguing protagonist will please Cass fans, those who like their kick-ass heroines north of 22, and readers who fancy a walk on the wild side.”

KILL SWITCH by Jonathan Maberry
In the eighth book in the series, Joe Ledger must stop a terrorist about to unleash electronic pulse bombs on 100 US cities. “A blend of sf, horror, technothriller, and crime novel, this is one of the best adrenaline reads out there. A hot pick for anyone who likes The X-Files (Maberry wrote for this franchise as well) or other apocalyptic fiction by authors such as Ben H. Winters and Colson Whitehead.”

DUST UP by Jon McGoran
Detective Doyle Carrick finds a complete stranger dying on his doorstep in the middle of the night, which leads him to discover a corporate conspiracy that involved international politics and tainted food shipments. “It’s a first-tier thriller by an ecologist who can show the hard-boiled folks a thing or two.” — Booklist, starred review

DESIGN FOR DYING by Renee Patrick
“Under the Patrick pseudonym, married coauthors Rosemarie and Vince Keenan have written a champagne-flavored frolic of a first mystery set during Hollywood’s golden age. Lillian is determined to make her own way, and Edith aims to take over Paramount’s costume department. Both serve as independent and resolute sleuths. This is sure to delight fans of old Hollywood and Turner Classic Movies.” — Library Journal
