THE EIGHTH DETECTIVE by Alex Pavesi

An Indie Next pick!

“This inventive debut sees editor Julia Hart visit a reclusive author, mathematician Grant McAllister, whose self-published work, The White Murders, she hopes to release…Pavesi’s language immerses readers in mid-twentieth-century England and in the struggles, cruelties, and oddities of his multitude of carefully portrayed characters. Give this atmospheric puzzle to fans of short stories and of the American Mystery Classics series.”–Booklist, starred review

UNDER PRESSURE: A Lucas Page Novel by Robert Pobi

“Page stands out as a highly unusual lead in a crowded genre, and Pobi combines a razor sharp sense of humor with surgical use of political and social commentary throughout. This is a must for fans of sophisticated crime fiction.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

DOPEWORLD: Adventures in the Global Drug Trade by Niko Vorobyov

“Journalist Vorobyov (Russia Today) traveled the globe to explore the drug trade, raising intriguing questions along the way… Equal parts criminal memoir, history lesson, and travelog, this will appeal to readers seeking an immersive and intimate look at the drug trade.”–Library Journal

EL JEFE: The Stalking of Chapo Guzmán by Alan Feuer

“Fast-paced tale of the decades-long quest to capture a notorious drug kingpin… Fans of Don Winslow’s fiction and Mark Bowden’s nonfiction alike will be eager to read Feuer’s blood-spattered tale.”–Kirkus Reviews
