THE FATE OF A FLAPPER: A Mystery by Susanna Calkins

“Written with wit and an understanding of the tensions during one of the most volatile times in history, Calkins’s second ‘Speakeasy’ story (after MURDER KNOCKS TWICE) will give readers insight into the world of Prohibition and what the human spirit is capable of in desperate times.”–Library Journal

THE GROVE OF THE CAESARS: A Flavia Albia Novel by Lindsey Davis

“The audacious Flavia Albia returns in her eighth adventure (after A CAPITOL DEATH, 2019), once again feverishly traversing the Tiber in her never-ending quest for truth, justice, and the Roman way…This one ends with a surprising conclusion that will make fans adore Flavia even more, if that is possible.”–Booklist
