New Fiction

Rock with Wings by Anne Hillerman: Doing a good deed for a relative offers the opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away. But two cases call them back from their vacation and separate them—one near Shiprock, and the other at iconic Monument Valley.

Broken Trust by W.E.B. Griffin: The Camilla Rose that Matt Payne had known as a teenager was beautiful and brilliant–how was it possible she’d jumped to her death from her own balcony? Her brother says she was battling a lifetime of mental demons, but something just doesn’t sit right. Reputations are on the line here, and lives–and if Payne isn’t careful, one of them may be his own.

Commonwealth by Ann Patchett: Commonwealth is the story of two broken families and the paths their lives take over the course of 40 years, through love and marriage, death and divorce, and a dark secret from childhood that lies underneath it all.

Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple: Eleanor Flood is going to re-examine her life, clean up her act, get dressed, only change into yoga clothes for yoga, which today she will actually attend, and be a better version of herself, all in one day. Until everything falls apart.

The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter: With the discovery of a murder at an abandoned construction site, Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is brought in on a case that becomes much more dangerous when the dead man is identified as an ex-cop. Evidence soon links Will’s troubled past to the case… and the consequences will wreak havoc for Will and everyone around him.

The Family Plot by Cherie Priest: The Family Plot is a haunted house story for the ages-atmospheric, scary, and strange, with a modern gothic sensibility to keep it fresh and interesting-from Cherie Priest, a modern master of supernatural fiction.

All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris: Aurora Teagarden is basking in the news of her pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids vanish from the school soccer field in an afternoon. Aurora’s 15-year-old brother Phillip is one of them.

The Trespasser by Tana French: Being on the Murder Squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed it would be. Her new case looks like yet another by-the-numbers lovers’ quarrel gone bad. Soon she wonders if the case is another step in the campaign to force her off the squad, or are there darker currents flowing beneath its polished surface?

When the Music’s Over by Peter Robinson: Two women. Two crimes. The first is a poet claiming she was assaulted decades earlier by a man now regarded as one of the country’s national treasures. And the second is a girl found on a remote roadside. For Alan Banks, the first case rips a tunnel into long-ago days. And in the victim, he sees an opportunity for magic recaptured.
