THE BREAKDOWN by B.A. Paris
A Library Journal Spring 2017 Editors’ Pick with two starred reviews! A woman who believes she was a witness to a crime obsesses over whether she could have prevented a death, while fearing for her sanity. “This psychological thriller is even harder to put down than Paris’ 2016 best-seller debut [and LibraryReads pick] BEHIND CLOSED DOORS; schedule reading time accordingly. With two in a row, Paris moves directly to the thriller A-list.” — Booklist, starred review

PARADISE VALLEY by C.J. Box
“Investigator Cassie Dewell is now jobless, the plan she set up for the Bakken County, ND, sheriff’s department to ensnare a serial killer called the Lizard King having badly derailed. So when a troubled boy she’s been helping disappears after telling his grandmother that he’s going on a grand adventure, Cassie has the time and the impetus to search for him. Not that she’s forgotten about that nasty Lizard guy, whom the plot circles back dangerously.” Library Journal, pre-pub alert

THE DARK DARK by Samantha Hunt
“These short stories are works of dark, dark magic that skitter between worlds both recognizable and wholly new. Fans of Hunt’s work (MR. SPLITFOOT, 2016, etc.) will revel in her first story collection, which marries her signature flare for the fantastic with keen observation and sharp prose. Grab your comforter and a flashlight for this tour de force collection from one of our most inventive storytellers.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
