POISON by Galt Niederhoffer
“An award-winning filmmaker and novelist (she directed the film version of her own work, The Romantics), Niederhoffer typically investigates families under stress. Here, Abigail and Benjamin Borden look to have the perfect marriage, but small lies and shifty denials create tension that escalates into veritable menace. The publicist describes this psychological thriller as ‘stay-up-all-night-to-finish good,’ so be prepared.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert
MURDER IN THE MANUSCRIPT ROOM: A 42nd Street Library Mystery by Con Lehane

Shortly after he learns that the victim was working under an assumed name, the NYPD’s Intelligence Division pulls the case from its homicide division, and Raymond knows something big is up. Second in a series from the author of the Brian McNulty mysteries.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert
