Happy #BookBday (2/7/17 Edition)

#BookBdaycat and cake party in the stacks with J.D. Robb, John Darnielle, and more!

ECHOES IN DEATH by J.D. Robb
This chilling new suspense novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb is the perfect entry point into the compelling In Death police procedural series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas. “Bestseller Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is not only prolific but consistently inventive, entertaining, and clever in her crime series set in a near-future New York City, as shown by the stunning 44th entry. Just when Eve appears to have everything sewn up, Robb delivers a final, devastating twist.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

UNIVERSAL HARVESTER by John Darnielle
Two starred reviews! Life in a small Iowa town takes a dark turn when mysterious footage begins appearing on VHS cassettes at the local Video Hut. “Darnielle’s masterfully disturbing follow-up to the National Book Award–nominated WOLF IN WHITE VAN reads like several Twilight Zone scripts cut together by a poet.”
Booklist, starred review

THE CLAIRVOYANTS by Karen Brown
Two starred reviews for this gothic-inflected psychological suspense novel that unmasks the secret desires of a young woman with a mystical gift. “[An] arresting, unsettling, and beautiful tale. Brown enchants and haunts by making the reader question every voice, every truth.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE WOMAN NEXT DOOR by Yewande Omotoso
The U.S. debut of an award-winning writer, in which an unexpected friendship blossoms in contemporary Cape Town—and in a community where loving thy neighbor is easier said than done. “Omotoso’s warm and witty story is more complex than a simple tale of black and white, with Katterjin a microcosm of a city and a country still grappling with the repercussions of apartheid’s end…. Like Helen Simonson’s MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND, which also depicts the wisdom found in aging, this novel will have universal appeal.” — Library Journal
