THE MITFORD MURDERS by Jessica Fellowes
A February 2018 Indie Next pick! New York Times bestselling author Fellowes draws on a true unsolved crime from the 1920s in a mystery starring a maid working for the Mitford sisters. “…the heroine is appealingly plucky, and the reader sinks into the rich period detail as pleasantly as into an overstuffed sofa.” — Kirkus Reviews

HIDDEN DEPTHS by Ann Cleeves
Also available in trade paperback
Published for the first time in the U.S., the “captivating”* third book in Diamond Dagger award-winning crime novelist Ann Cleeves’s Vera Stanhope series, brought to life in the hit TV series Vera. “Readers will want to devour the entire series just for the pleasure of spending time in Vera’s complex and inviting world.” — *Publishers Weekly

THE SILENT ROOM by Mari Hannah
One fugitive. A deadly plot. No rules. Thus begins an ingenious and lightning-fast standalone thriller. “A fast-paced read with relatable characters and a hint of romance; fans of Sara Paretsky’s investigations into corporate misdeeds will find a lot to like here.” — Booklist readmoreremove

Monday Fun Day! (3/11/2013 Edition)

Welcome back to the blog, librarians! We're kicking off the week with some most excellent news about a few of our fine debuts.

- Major congratulations to debut author Amelia Gray who's first novel, THREATS, is one of five finalists for the 2013 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction!! See all of the finalists here.

- In The New York Times Janet Maslin calls Becky Masterman's debut thriller, RAGE AGAIST THE DYING, "pulse-quickening," "scorching," and "invigorating." She says,

"In one final demonstration that she has learned the lessons of crime fiction well, Ms. Masterman hides important evidence in the unlikeliest place: within plain sight. But this book is too cleverly manipulative for readers to get ahead of Brigid in making such startling discoveries."

Library Journal and Publishers Weekly each gave Masterman's debut a starred review and it has been selected as a March Indie Next Pick! This title will be available tomorrow from Minotaur Books.
