A pro football player turns sleuth and an investigator finally gets a lead on the cold case that haunts him most: his daughter’s abduction.
HANGMAN’S GAME by Bill Syken
Former Sports Illustrated reporter Syken’s first mystery stars Nick Gallow, a pro football punter who witnesses the murder of the new all-star draft pick just as the team’s summer minicamp starts up. “This is the very best sports-themed mystery in years and a robust debut novel. Don’t miss it.” — Booklist, starred review
GONE COLD by Douglas Corleone
“Corleone’s prose is lean, his plotting tight, his characters vividly drawn. [Former US Marshal Simon] Fisk is one of the more interesting series leads in the contemporary-thriller genre, a man who’s so guilt-ridden over his own daughter’s abduction that he’s compelled to help other parents in similar situations. Will he finally find some measure of peace here? Stay tuned.” — Booklist
