True crime stories with all the gory details, both aided and stymied by the author’s insights.
PREMIUM

My Favorites: An Anthology

Bova is one of the grand masters of the field, and this anthology reflects the breadth of his writing. Recommended for readers seeking an introduction to the author, and for libraries that do not own a more complete collection.

All Things Left Wild

Mixing classic Western tropes with current concerns, this literary historical has a contemporary edge. With its lyrical language and philosophical asides, it may appeal mostly to readers of Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses or Patrick deWitt’s The Sisters Brothers.

Pale

This is a promising beginning for a writer who, whether he realizes it or not, continues a rich and lyrical narrative tradition. A beautiful first novel.
PREMIUM

The Queen of Paris

Utilizing first person for past scenes and third person for present scenes is generally off-putting and confounds the narrative. Readers of traditional biography may prefer Anne De Courcy’s Chanel’s Riviera, which also addresses Chanel’s wartime spying.

Master of Sorrows

Call’s debut, which kicks off the “Silent Gods” series, takes its time coming to a boil, but by the final act there is plenty of action and conflict. Readers of Mark Lawrence’s “Book of the Ancestor” trilogy or Patrick Rothfuss’s “Kingkiller Chronicle” will appreciate the depiction of a young conflicted hero coming of age in a fantastic school.

Rewind

Readers who enjoy books by Gillian Flynn and Ruth Ware, as well as the earlier thrillers by award-winning Irish author Howard (Distress Signals; The Liar’s Girl) will find this a perfect vacation read; full of twists and turns and just the right touch of creepiness. A must for mystery and thriller collections. [See Prepub Alert, 2/24/19.]

Trinity Sight

This harrowing debut with Southwestern sensibility depicts the dangers of destroying our planet and questions whether mythology is an apt term to describe Indigenous beliefs. Purchase where Rebecca Roanhorse’s Trail of Lightning and Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Gods of Jade and Shadow are popular.
