What’s New?

A devoted single mother hides the truth about her daughter’s absent father and asks her best friend for help when challenges from her past threaten her teenage daughter, in Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough.

Meet two women who challenged the Crown — divided by time and bound by a secret, in Another Woman’s Husband by Gill Paul.

Investigating a string of suicides connected by a baffling nightmare, former NYPD detective Dave Gurney traces the victims to a controversial hypnotherapist before finding himself in the crosshairs of a chilling murderer, the local police, and corrupt feds, in Wolf Lake.  When racial tensions in the small community of White River escalate to the shooting of a police officer, Dave Gurney investigates suspiciously inconsistent evidence that is clouded by deceptive additional killings, in White River Burning – the next two novels in the Dave Gurney series by John Verdon.

After years of deadly silence, a killer re-emerges in Telling Tales; and during a heatwave on the Northumberland coast, Inspector Vera Stanhope investigates two stylized murder scenes, in which the victims have been laid out in water strewn with flowers, in Hidden Depths, the second and third novels in the Vera Stanhope series by Ann Cleeves.

Kipp Brown, successful businessman and compulsive gambler, is having the worst run of luck of his life. He’s beginning to lose big style. However, taking his teenage son, Mungo, to their club’s big Saturday afternoon football match should have given him a welcome respite, if only for a few hours. But it’s at the stadium where his nightmare begins. Within minutes of arriving at the game, Kipp bumps into a client. He takes his eye of Mungo for a few moments, and in that time, the boy is gone, in Dead if You Don’t (#14 Detective Superintendent Roy Grace).

The Next Person You Meet in Heaven, sequel to The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom, continues the story of grizzled war veteran-turned-amusement park mechanic Eddie, who has a spiritual reunion with the girl he died rescuing.

P.I. Dillon Wolf is fascinated by gambler Jessy Spearhawk and by the single word a dying man spoke: Indigo. From the glitz of the Vegas strip to a desert ghost town, the unlikely pair forge ahead with an investigation that will risk both their lives, in Nightwalker (#8 Harrison Investigation) by Heather Graham.
