SIGNAL by Patrick Lee
“Two books into this series, and it’s clear that Lee has hit the jackpot. Expect the horde of out-of-breath readers gasping to keep up with Lee’s breakneck pace to keep growing exponentially with each new appearance of Sam Dryden.”
— Booklist, starred review
“Lee’s thriller featuring a loner hero compares to Lee Child’s ‘Jack Reacher’ series but with the added kick of technology. Readers will wait with bated breath for the next Dryden adventure.” — Library Journal, starred review
BADLANDS by C.J. Box
“Although he’s placed kids in danger in other books, this could be the most effective of his thrillers since his Edgar-winning BLUE HEAVEN. The temperature on the northern plains may fall to 40 below, but the engine of this thriller races red hot, providing plenty of warmth to keep readers going all night.” — Booklist, starred review
“Suspenseful—you can’t put it down.” — Library Journal, starred review
AFTER THE STORM by Linda Castillo
A tornado unearths human remains leading to a thirty-year-old cold case in Painters Mill. Meanwhile, a very emotional and personal turmoil strikes at Police Chief Kate Burkholder’s budding relationship with state agent John Tomasetti.
THOSE GIRLS by Chevy Stevens
The bond between sisters runs deep, especially when murder is involved… “Stevens’s fourth thriller weaves such an engrossing, suspenseful tale that readers will wish they could warn the protagonists of the dangers that lie ahead. Highly recommended for fans of the genre who relish nail-biting suspense as well as stories about the endurance of family and the human spirit.” — Library Journal, starred review
THE LAST PILOT by Benjamin Johncock
Using the early days of the U.S. space exploration program as a backdrop, Johncock’s “impressive”* debut laces fact with fiction to tell the tale of Jim Harrison, an Air Force test pilot turned astronaut, his wife, Grace, and their gravely ill two-year-old daughter, Florence. “A marvelous, emotionally powerful novel.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review
THE NIGHT STAGES by Jane Urquhart
A female pilot recalls her affair with a man obsessed with the disappearance of his brother in this elegiac novel of intersecting memories and the sorrows of fractured families. “Highly satisfying on many levels, this novel will have book clubs basking in its big symbols and abuzz over Tamara’s final decision.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
PRETTY IS by Maggie Mitchell
A fiercely inspired fiction debut in which two young women—an actress and an academic—face what really happened the summer they were twelve, when a handsome stranger abducted them.
A THOUSAND MILES TO FREEDOM by Eunsun Kim
In her haunting and compelling memoir, Kim recounts her childhood in North Korea and the harrowing 9-year journey involving Chinese human traffickers, a North Korean labor camp, and a trek across the Mongolian desert that finally led her to South Korea and freedom.
BELL WEATHER by Dennis Mahoney
An otherworldly and kinetic story set in a fantastical 18th century starring a young woman who must uncover the secrets of her past while confronting the present dangers of a magical wilderness.
DOES THIS BEACH MAKE ME LOOK FAT? by Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Scottoline Serritella
“This sixth in the series [from Edgar Award–winning and blockbuster-best-selling novelist Scottoline and daughter Serritella] continues to ponder the imponderables of contemporary life and all the anxieties, detours, and, yes, sometimes sunny moments women everywhere will recognize. Guys, you might get something from this, too.”
