NEVER LET YOU GO by Chevy Stevens
In the new novel from the LibraryReads author of THOSE GIRLS, Lindsey Nash escaped an abusive marriage and has successfully started her life over with her daughter—or so she thought. “[A] superlative psychological thriller… Stevens’s taut writing and chilling depiction of love twisted beyond recognition make this a compelling read from the first page to the last.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE LOVING HUSBAND by Christobel Kent
A taut and absorbing psychological thriller about a murdered husband who may not have been so loving after all. “…a truly chilling, absorbing read.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
SKELETON GOD by Eliot Pattison
“Edgar-winner Pattison remains without peer at integrating a fair-play whodunit into a searing portrayal of life under an oppressive and capricious regime, as shown by his ninth Insp. Shan Tao Yun mystery. Even readers unfamiliar with the physical and cultural devastation China has wrought in Tibet will find themselves engrossed—and moved—by Pattison’s nuanced portrayal.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
A DEATH BY ANY OTHER NAME by Tessa Arlen
Lady Montfort and her pragmatic housekeeper Mrs. Jackson investigate a murder among a group of amateur rose-breeders while the English summer days count down to the start of WWI. “Lovers of traditional English country house mysteries will enjoy this story very much.” — Publishers Weekly
THE RETURN by Joseph Helmreich
Years after a scientist is abducted on live TV, a graduate student tracks down the mysteriously returned and now reclusive man, ultimately uncovering a global conspiracy. “Helmreich combines just enough science with thrilling action to keep the reader hooked on this story while pondering the greater meaning of Leland’s abduction and the sparse memories of his time off-planet.” — Booklist
