HARBOUR STREET by Ann Cleeves
Two stars for Cleeves’s latest entry in her D.I. Vera Stanhope series. “The fatal stabbing of 70-year-old Margaret Krukowski on a train car filled with Christmas shoppers propels British author Cleeves’s excellent sixth mystery featuring Northumbrian Det. Insp. Vera Stanhope. You don’t have to be a fan of the TV show Vera, now filming its fifth season, to enjoy this top-notch police procedural.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

TIME OF DEPARTURE by Douglas Schofield
Two starred reviews for this debut mystery with a surprising twist, featuring a young state prosecutor investigating a series of murders dating back to the 1970s, and a mysterious ex cop who knows way too much about her. “Don’t expect to get any sleep if you start this novel tonight.” — Library Journal, starred review

“[An] engrossing debut with a Twilight Zone twist… It’s a tribute to criminal lawyer Schofield’s persuasive powers that his characters, procedural elements, and atmosphere are convincing enough to keep those pages turning without logic getting in the way.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

RIOT MOST UNCOUTH by Daniel Friedman
“Thriller Award–finalist Friedman (DON’T EVER LOOK BACK) succeeds in making his unique blend of humor, crime, and an unusual protagonist work in the first of a new series starring the famous Romantic poet [Lord Byron]. Besides adroitly placing the major plot twists, Friedman manages to make one of the most obnoxious leads in recent memory oddly endearing and even sympathetic.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
