SUNRISE HIGHWAY by Peter Blauner
Two starred reviews! Lourdes Robles, a relentless young Latina detective for the NYPD, discovers a deep and sinister web of connections between the victims of a serial killer and some of the most powerful political figures in Long Island. “Exploring such subjects as police corruption, misogyny, and racism, this is a page-turner of the highest order.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

WILD FIRE by Ann Cleeves
Two starred reviews! When a young nanny’s body is found hanging in a barn, rumors of her affair with the husband spark suspicion and resentment in the Shetland community, leading Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez to investigate. “Intricately plotted and elegantly written, this installment is billed as Perez’s final case. Series fans will be sorry to see the last of him.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

LEVERAGE IN DEATH by J.D. Robb
Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. “With the forty-seventh installment in her always popular Eve Dallas series, Robb again remixes and remasters all the addictively readable ingredients her readers have come to crave, including a tough-as-nails protagonist who takes guff from no one, a plethora of engaging secondary characters who each play their roles to perfection, a generous dash of hot-as-sin sex, and a fine-tuned, tautly paced plot that relentlessly ticks along to the book’s satisfying conclusion.” — Booklist

AN ACT OF VILLAINY by Ashley Weaver
In the 5th book in Edgar Award-nominee and librarian Ashley Weaver’s historical mystery series, Amory Ames is hired by her friend, play director Gerard Holloway, who wants Amory to find out who’s sending threatening letters to his mistress/lead actress. “An excellent addition to the series, this could also be read independently. Fans of light period mysteries with fashion and flair will be caught up in Amory’s latest adventure.” — Library Journal readmoreremove

July 2018 All-Stars

Whether it’s literary fiction, mystery, poetry, or graphic novels, these books all have the same thing in common: multiple starred reviews!

THE GOLDEN STATE by Lydia Kiesling
“Kiesling’s intimate, culturally perceptive debut portrays a frazzled mother and a fractious America, both verging on meltdown. But perhaps best of all is her thought-provoking portrait of a pioneer community in decline as anger and obsession fray bonds between neighbors, family, and fellow citizens.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“There’s so much to love about this novel… Strongly recommended for readers who enjoy contemporary literary fiction and can handle a few swear words.” Library Journal, starred review

BONE ON BONE by Julia Keller — 3 starred reviews!
“Keller can spin a mystery plot with the best of them, but it’s her full-bodied characters and the regard they have for one another that really sets her crime fiction apart: a bride’s back-of-the-hand caress of her new husband’s cheek, and his response, is a moment that will linger in memory long after the crime is solved.” Booklist, starred review

“Beautifully written… This thoughtful, painfully empathetic story will long linger in the reader’s memory.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This haunting, thought-provoking story proves Keller is one of a kind. Readers of Julia Spencer-Fleming’s mysteries of communities torn apart by crime may also want to try.”Library Journal, starred review

CITY OF INK by Elsa Hart
“Rich in period detail, a sharply rendered exotic setting, and a web of well-crafted plots, Li Du’s third novel will appeal to fans of historical mysteries by Lisa See, Laura Joh Rowland, and Abir Mukherjee.” Booklist, starred review

“Superb… As always, Hart excels at making even walk-on characters fully realized and at combining a gripping whodunit plot with a vivid evocation of the period. This entry solidifies her status as a top-notch historical mystery author. ” — Publishers Weekly, starred review readmoreremove

DAUGHTER OF A DAUGHTER OF A QUEEN by Sarah Bird
Also available in audio
This historical novel tells the compelling, hidden story of Cathy Williams, a former slave and the only woman to ever serve with the legendary Buffalo Soldiers, disguised as a man. “Bird’s fast-paced, action-packed story is a bittersweet one—grand love and legacy ultimately eluded Williams—but this fearless, often heartbreaking account sheds a welcome light on an extraordinary American warrior.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
