THE SHADOW DISTRICT by Arnaldur Indridason
A November 2017 LibraryReads pick with two starred reviews! “The award-winning author of the ‘Inspector Erlendur’ series (INTO OBLIVION) continues his modus operandi of simultaneously covering a current and cold case in this new series set during the war years. The inspectors, past and present, are formidable characters, and the blend of police procedural with Icelandic folklore is intriguing. VERDICT While not as dark as lndridason’s previous works, this is a welcome addition from a master of the genre. ” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove

A Thousand Cuts by Thomas Mogford

“Richly atmospheric… Throughout the series, Mogford has explored the multicultural tensions that define contemporary Gibraltar, and this time he ups the ante by adding a fascinating historical layer to that ambiguity-drenched cultural stew. Sanguinetti, naturally, feels caught in the middle as the riptide of present and past threaten to engulf him and those he loves. An essential international crime series.”–Booklist

“Compelling… The intricate plot unfolds naturally, as Casey never lets readers stray from Kerrigan’s point of view, so that they feel as if they are figuring it all out with her in this increasingly dark and tragic story.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Penance of the Damned by Peter Tremayne

“Those who enjoy a rich historical setting, wish to learn more about ancient Ireland, and relish a perplexing puzzle will be well rewarded.”–Library Journal
