Red Queen

Brick’s performance brings out the warmth, as well as the drama, in this witty thriller, the first in Gómez-Jurado’s trilogy featuring a Lisbeth Salander–like character paired with a wonderfully self-deprecating cop. Libraries should expect significant demand, especially with a TV series in the works.

The Traitor's Emblem

From the misleading title, readers would expect this thriller to be about the medallion, but family intrigue and the quest for revenge dominate the tale. Although Gómez-Jurado is a good storyteller, for artifact provenance stories Steve Berry is the reigning maestro. If you want a peek at secret Masonic handshakes and rituals, however, Gómez-Jurado may have just lifted the veil. [See Prepub Alert, 1/24/11.]—Laura A.B. Cifelli, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., FL
