The arid New Mexico landscape and Emerson’s stark prose add layers of bone-chilling believability to the story. Fans of thrillers with supernatural elements will enjoy this great first novel.

Death Doesn’t Forget

Once again, it’s hellzapoppin’ time in Taipei. If readers haven’t tried Lin’s stylish mysteries, here’s a good place to start.

One-Shot Harry

Phillips’s (The Obama Inheritance) Harry is a worthy companion to Walter Mosley’s Easy Rawlins. Here’s hoping it’s not a one-shot appearance.

The Goldenacre

Though Miller (The Blue Horse) is an excellent wordsmith, he unfortunately takes a good plot and executes it poorly.

Don’t Know Tough

Cranor’s debut is a searing exploration of the toxic heart of Southern high school football culture, including the human price of winning at all costs; think Friday Night Lights with extra darkness. Readers of Daniel Woodrell and Allen Eskens will appreciate the visceral detail in this Ozarks noir.

Murder at the Porte de Versailles

Black’s latest is a fast-paced, atmospheric mystery that brings back memories of worldwide fear after 9/11. It’s best for fans of the series who will recognize the numerous characters and memories brought together in the 20th in the series (following Murder in Bel-Air).

My Annihilation

Nakamura’s (The Thief) dark, elegant novel will appeal more to lovers of experimental fiction than fans of crime thrillers.

An Elderly Lady Must Not Be Crossed

In spite of her penchant for using murder to solve her problems, elderly Maud is incredibly clever and oddly charming. Readers may find themselves rooting for her to get away with it all and will also appreciate the bonus gingerbread recipe.

The House of Ashes

A considerable departure from the author’s well-known police series, this psychological thriller is not for the fainthearted.
