Booklist “Pulse Pounder” Mystery webinar titles

On Tuesday, Talia “the terror” Sherer presented her favorite new mysteries as part of Booklist’s “Mysteries and Thrillers: Pulse Pounding Picks for your Patrons” webinar:

A DARK AND TWISTED TIDE by Sharon Bolton
In the latest Lacey Flint mystery, the detective—now part of the marine police—finds a shrouded body in the river. And that's just the first one... “Just as readers think they know the killer's identity, there is another shocking twist in this...gripping tale by a master of the genre.” — Library Journal

THAT NIGHT by Chevy Stevens
A woman who was wrongly convicted of her sister's murder and served time in prison must risk everything to find out the truth and clear her name. “Stevens has crafted yet another suspenseful thriller with this tale of heartbreak, the cruelties of fate, and redemption... A compelling, exceptional read.” — Library Journal, starred review

THE DEAD WILL TELL by Linda Castillo
In Castillo’s latest Kate Burkholder mystery, the Amish town of Painter’s Mill is plagued by a series of murders made to look like suicides. “Castillo effectively combines an airtight plot with a revealingly complex look at what can happen when a fissure develops along the fault line separating an insular community from the secular world. Castillo shows again why the phrase 'gritty Amish mystery' is no oxymoron.” — Booklist  

INVISIBLE CITY by Julia Dahl
In Dahl's “impressive”* debut, young journalist Rebekah Roberts finds herself drawn into her mother's tight-knit world when she's assigned to cover the murder of an Hasidic Jew. “Dahl’s convincing dialogue and perfect pacing make for a real page-turner. And her storytelling skills illuminate the intriguing worlds of the tabloid press, Hasidism, the NYPD, and Brooklyn’s 20-somethings—as well as the fragile boundaries of family, religion, and life itself.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred review

BONE DUST WHITE by Karin Salvalaggio
When a young woman witnesses the murder of her mother who had abandoned her as a child, eight month pregnant Detective Macy Greeley must solve the case and stop a killer. “This complicated, peel-away-layers debut procedural intoxicates from the opening page and has word-of-mouth selling power.” — Library Journal, starred review & Debut of the Month for April

THE LONG WAY HOME by Louise Penny
In the new book in the New York Times bestselling Chief Inspector Gamache series, the former Chief Inspector of Homicide is happily retired in Three Pines, but must help his friend Clara Morrow find her estranged husband, Peter. While it's not available yet, the great Gamache re-read is happening now to hold fans over. readmoreremove

Our Editors’ Picks Revealed!

Yesterday during Library Journal's "Editor's Picks" webinar, our very own Jen Enderlin (Vice President and Associate Publisher, St. Martin's Press) and Kelley Ragland (Editorial Director, Minotaur Books) gushed about the following four summer titles that they're incredibly excited to be working on:

THE CARETAKER
A.X. Ahmad
Coming in May!

A disgraced Sikh Indian Army captain becomes ensnared in a U.S. Senator's shadowy world while working as a caretaker on the Senator's estate.

"Weaving together Singh’s Sikh faith with very personal moments, taut action sequences, and events with international significance, Ahmad’s thriller should have broad appeal." -Library Journal (starred review)

"Beyond the masterfully crafted high-adrenaline story, readers will be fascinated by Ranjit's Sikh faith, rarely seen in American fiction." -Booklist (starred review)

ALWAYS WATCHING
Chevy Stevens
Coming in June!

Family secrets and missing memories abound in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author.

LADIES' NIGHT
Mary Kay Andrews
Coming in June!

The perfect beach read about lifestyle blogger Grace Stanton whose life torpedos after she drives her cheating husband's pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool.

LOST
S.J. Bolton
Coming in June!

A killer is taunting the cops, and London police officer Lacey Flint must pull herself together if she wants to help before it's too late.

"Pay attention to Bolton, a two-time Mary Higgins Clark Award winner and an ITW Thriller Award, CWA Gold Dagger, and Barry Award nominee." -Library Journal
