Accidents, murder and mayhem – mystery is in the air as leading publishing insiders share the latest thrillers and heart-stoppers coming out this season. Join this webcast to learn which titles your mystery-loving patrons will be curling up with during the fall and winter months. Check out some of these amazing new titles we will be featuring:


Sinister Graves by Marcie Rendon: Set in 1970s Minnesota on the White Earth Reservation, Pinckley Prize–winner Marcie R. Rendon’s gripping new mystery follows Cash Blackbear, a young Ojibwe woman, as she attempts to discover the truth about the disappearances of Native girls and their newborns.

Landslide by Adam Sikes: Mason Hackett is struggling with the sins of his past when he sees his best friend—a man long presumed dead—alive on the news. Driven by personal loyalty, tragic love, regret, and guilt, Mason steps into a tangled web of immoral governments and ruthless corporations as he rockets across Europe to the war-torn separatist region in Ukraine to uncover the truth.

The Nightmare Man by James Markert: T. Kingfisher meets Cassandra Khaw in a chilling horror novel that illustrates the fine line between humanity and monstrosity. Ben Bookman retreated to Blackwood mansion to finally finish his horror novel, The Scarecrow. But on the eve of its release, the terrible story within begins to unfold in real life. As the bodies pile up, the so-called "scarecrow crimes" continue to mirror the book, making Ben the prime suspect. He can’t remember much from the night he finished writing the novel, but he knows he wrote it in The Atrium, his grandfather’s forbidden room full of numbered books. Thousands of books without words. As Ben digs deep into Blackwood’s history he learns he may have triggered the release of something trapped long ago—and it won’t stay confined to the pages of the book.

The Dead Won't Tell by S. K. Waters: Hired to investigate a cold-case murder involving her former mentor, a novice journalist’s questions about race and police coverups in the 1960s ruffles one too many feathers, putting her family into the real killer’s crosshairs.

The Twist of a Knife by Anthony Horowitz: In New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz’s ingenious fourth literary whodunit following The Word is Murder, The Sentence is Death, and A Line to Kill, Horowitz becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation—and only one man can prove his innocence: his newly estranged partner in solving crime, Detective Hawthorne.
