THE BEST BAD THINGS by Katrina Carrasco 
November 2018 LibraryReads Pick

A vivid, sexy barn burner of a historical crime novel, THE BEST BAD THINGS introduces readers to the fiery Alma Rosales—detective, smuggler, spy.

THE BEST BAD THINGS + NEWCOMER = November LibraryReads Picks! Penny + Moriarty = Hall of Famers!

OH HAPPY DAY! Katrina Carrasco’s THE BEST BAD THINGS and Keigo Higashino’s NEWCOMER are November 2018 LibraryReads picks

THE BEST BAD THINGS

“Stellar… Carrasco succeeds in coupling a feminist historical that maintains period plausibility with an exploratory queer narrative rarely seen in the crime genre. Even readers uninterested in Alma’s identity journey will be impressed by her intelligence and social acumen, and drawn by the constantly shifting politics and well-timed reveals of the plot. Breath-catching pacing, tantalizingly rough-and-tumble characters who are somehow both distasteful and deeply relatable, palpable erotic energy, and powerful storytelling make this a standout.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

NEWCOMER

“Part Sherlock Holmes, part Harry Bosch, Higashino’s hero is a quietly majestic force to be reckoned with. Here’s hoping his demotion continues to bring him to the attention of readers from East to West.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

 

And in other news that makes us #squee, Louise Penny’s KINGDOM OF THE BLIND and Liane Moriarty’s NINE PERFECT STRANGERS are LibraryReads Hall of Famers
