It’s a slushy gray Thursday, perfect mystery-reading weather:

THE THIRD VICTIM by Phillip Margolin
Also available in audio
Regina Barrister, a legendary criminal defense attorney, has agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of defending Alex Mason—a prominent local attorney accused of kidnapping, torture, and murder. Yet Regina’s young co-counsel is worried her boss’s behavior and the details in the case against their client don’t quite add up. “Margolin continues his return to the exceptional form of his early novels with this gripping, tightly plotted, and smoothly written legal thriller.” — Booklist

MEMENTO MORI by Ruth Downie
The eighth gripping novel in the bestselling Medicus series, in which Ruso and Tilla investigate the death of the wife of Ruso’s friend in the sacred hot spring of Aquae Sulis. “Highly recommended for series fans and readers of Lindsey Davis’s Roman mysteries, but it also serves as a worthy stand-alone.” — Library Journal readmoreremove
