OUR LITTLE SECRET by Roz Nay
One of Library Journal’s best Spring/Summer 2018 debuts with two starred reviews! “Remarkable. OUR LITTLE SECRET, a debut novel by Roz Nay, superficially resembles Paula Hawkins’ THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN and similar psychological thrillers that have stormed the best-seller lists in the last decade. But Nay’s work transcends the subgenre. The plot is more textured and heartbreaking, and her prose contains startling turns of phrase that reveal the soul of a poet.”Associated Press

THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN by Sasscer Hill
Undercover agent Fia McKee returns in another thrilling mystery set in the seamy underbelly of horse racing. “Filled with sense-laden descriptions and ever-tightening suspense, this is gripping mystery fare and a terrific successor to the racecourse mystery world first carved out by Dick Francis.” — Booklist, starred review

WHISPERS OF THE DEAD by Spencer Kope
A series of bizarre murders, the victims nearly unidentifiable, forces “Steps” Craig to match wits with the most cold-blooded killer he’s ever encountered in this sequel to COLLECTING THE DEAD. “This novel more than lives up to the acclaimed first installment. Thriller devotees will devour this unpredictable mystery, wanting more from Steps and Jimmy.” — Library Journal, starred review

IN PRIOR’S WOOD by G.M. Malliet
“Malliet continues her top-notch spy-turned-cleric Max Tudor series with a seventh intricately structured mystery. Miss Marple would have the time of her life helping Max unravel a series of deaths involving the village’s elderly matriarch, the newly seated lord of the manor, his wife and her young lover, and the lover’s librarian wife. Perfect for fans of the wickedly funny cozy writers M. C. Beaton and Catriona McPherson, as well as devotees of Louise Penny who appreciate a redemptive ending.” — Booklist readmoreremove
