The Year’s Best Crime Novels: 2016 — Best Crime Fiction Debuts

ALL THAT FOLLOWED by Gabriel Urza
It’s five years after the murder of a young politician in Spain’s Basque Country, but the repercussions reverberate still. Urza tells this history-soaked tale through three narrators, who offer different but equally nuanced views of what happened. A compelling look at Basque culture and the lingering effects of violence.

HANGMAN’S GAME by Bill Syken
Nick Gallow, punter for the Philadelphia Sentinels pro-football team, is present when the team’s first-round draft pick and his agent are killed by a drive-by shooter. Another player is suspected of the killing, but Gallow doesn’t buy it. Syken nails the football milieu in what may be the best sports-themed mystery in years.

She Reads: International Crime Fiction (Kaite Stover’s “Global Women of Mystery” picks)

THE SILENT DEAD by Tetsuya Honda
The newest member of Tokyo’s Homicide Division, Reiko Himekawa, faces situations similar to Petra’s. Young, politically unconnected, and facing gender and age bias from her coworkers, Reiko has only her fearlessness and gut instincts to help her find a serial killer stalking the neon grit of Tokyo. She is determined to speak for THE SILENT DEAD, no matter what the personal cost. readmoreremove

IN REAL LIFE by Jessica Love
MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING meets THE HANGOVER—for teens—in this YA novel about a high school student who meets her online BFF and discovers how many secrets he has left unshared. “Add to this high-interest backdrop a romantic cat-and-mouse game, funny dialogue laced with big-sisterly advice about taking control, and a competitor who is too nice to hate, and you have a…sweet story ideal for contemporary teens whose lives play out in similar computer-and-text-message-related ways.” — Booklist

THE HIDDEN TWIN by Adi Rule
For eighteen years a girl with no name, a Redwing, has been hidden away in a small attic room while her idential sister, Jey, has lived her life in public as an only child. But when she switches places with Jey and finds herself in danger, she must prove herself more than a monster if she is to save both her sister and her home. “Purchase where Tamora Pierce’s books are popular.” — School Library Journal

DELICATE MONSTERS by Stephanie Kuehn
Two stars for the latest haunting tale from the Morris-Award winning author of CHARM & STRANGE and COMPLICIT. “Award-winning Kuehn is firing on all cylinders with her latest taut psychological thriller. Intelligent, compulsively readable literary fiction with a dark twist.” — Booklist, starred review

HELLO, I LOVE YOU by Katie M. Stout
A teen escapes to a boarding school abroad and falls for a Korean pop star in this fun and fresh romantic novel in the vein of ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS. “Stout’s romance credibly examines facing one’s inner turmoil and orchestrating new beginnings.” — Publishers Weekly

A GIRL UNDONE by Catherine Linka (The Girl Called Fearless series #2)
In this sequel and explosive conclusion to A GIRL CALLED FEARLESS, Avie Reveare is on the run with deadly government secrets and has been labeled a terrorist. Can she can live up to her name and truly become fearless for the cause or is it better to just give in to her pursuers? “Readers who are fans of dystopian fiction will appreciate the action and suspense that both Avie and Luke have to work through, as well as the rebellious nature that both characters exude.”
VOYA Magazine

WEIGHTLESS by Sarah Bannan
When 15-year-old Carolyn moves from New Jersey to Alabama with her mother, she rattles the status quo of the junior class at Adams High School and becomes a golden girl. But after one incident, Carolyn is labeled a slut, and becomes increasingly private and isolated in the wake of gossip and bullying until it’s the last attack she can take. “Bannan’s provocative novel will stay with readers long after they finish it, and should be an especially effective read for teens.” — Publishers Weekly
