The Accident by Chris Pavone (Crown)
Appeared on the March 2014 LibraryReads list

“Kudos to Pavone for coming through with another captivating international suspense novel. How ironic that I couldn’t put down a book about Isabel, a literary agent who stays up all night to finish an unsolicited manuscript that’s so explosive, some will kill to keep it from being published. During the 24 hours that Isabel is on the run, readers will be on the edge of their seats. Be prepared to lose some sleep!”—Paulette Brooks, Elm Grove Public Library, WI


Newcomer: A Mystery by Keigo Higashino (Minotaur: St. Martin’s)
Appeared on the November 2018 LibraryReads list

“Newly transferred Tokyo Police Detective Kaga is assigned a baffling murder. The story is told almost entirely through the perspective of people he interviews, gradually revealing the puzzling who, how, and why in this mystery. For fans of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, and Columbo, as well as lovers of international crime novels.”—Julie Graham, Yakima Valley Libraries, WA


Night School: A Jack Reacher Novel by Lee Child (Delacorte; LJ starred review)
Appeared on the November 2016 LibraryReads list

“Child goes back to the well and gives readers another glimpse into Jack Reacher’s past as a military cop—and what a worthwhile trip it is. It’s 1996, and after Reacher receives a Legion of Merit medal, he’s sent to ‘night school’ with two other men, one from the FBI and another from the CIA. Soon, the trio learn that they’ve been selected for a covert mission. Child layers his page-turning story with careful and sometimes dryly humorous details. This suspense series keeps getting better; it’s a joy to read.”—Elizabeth Eastin, Rogers Memorial Library, Southhampton, NY
