HE SAID/SHE SAID by Erin Kelly
Two starred reviews! On the eve of a solar eclipse, a couple forced into hiding discovers that they can no longer run from their past in this taut psychological suspense novel. “HE SAID/SHE SAID is a thriller to savor, and should be one of the highlights of the summer.” — Associated Press

WOLF ON A STRING by Benjamin Black
Bestselling author Black turns his eye to sixteenth century Prague and a story of murder, magic and the dark art of wielding extraordinary power. “Black displays his mastery of yet another mystery subgenre in this brooding, atmospheric whodunit set in 16th-century Prague. Superior prose complements the intricate plot.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

YOU BELONG TO ME by Colin Harrison
An elite immigration attorney and obsessive collector of antique New York City maps is drawn into a swiftly escalating series of murders in Harrison’s latest whodunit. “In his latest New York-centered crime thriller, Harrison spins a tightly wound tale of obsession and betrayal. The narrative is as impressively constructed as the maps in Paul’s collection: each section laid out in seamless order to allow for a satisfyingly neat conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly

SHIVER HITCH by Linda Greenlaw
New York Times bestselling author Greenlaw brings back sleuth Jane Bunker in a fantastic new mystery set in the fishing village of Green Haven, Maine. “The author’s experience as a lobster-boat captain is apparent in her vivid descriptions of nor’easters and in her portrayals of the quirky residents of Maine’s rural areas. An entertaining series, strong on setting.” — Booklist

THE DAUGHTER OF SHERLOCK HOLMES by Leonard Goldberg
From USA Today and internationally bestselling author Goldberg comes a new thrilling tale of Sherlock Holmes’ daughter and her companion Dr. John Watson, Jr. as they investigate a murder at the highest levels of British society. “Goldberg’s Sherlock Holmes pastiche is pitch-perfect as John Watson Jr. becomes the voice of a new generation and Joanna Blalock takes on her role as leader of the investigation. Fans of Laurie R. King’s ‘Mary Russell’ books will welcome a fellow female to the ranks of Holmes followers.” — Library Journal

WHAT THE DEAD LEAVE BEHIND by David Housewright
Looking into an unsolved murder as a favor, PI Rushmore McKenzie soon uncovers either the strangest set of coincidences or the sites of a very real, very deadly conspiracy. “The McKenzie novels are solidly plotted mysteries with, overall, a rather light tone—not comic mysteries, by any means, but a long way from noir. Housewright is one of those writers whose name on the cover guarantees readers a good time, and he definitely doesn’t disappoint this time.” — Booklist

THE LAST KID LEFT by Rosecrans Baldwin
When a scandalous small-town crime goes viral, a teen girl takes center stage in the story of a twenty-first-century Puritan witch hunt. “[A] well-crafted mystery… readers who like plenty of character analysis in their crime fiction will be satisfied.” — Publishers Weekly
