Scent of Murder by James O. Born – “Scent of Murder is a terrific twist to cop tales – a gritty, realistic look at the men, women, and dogs in police K-9 units. It’s a joyride that’s at turns funny, thrilling, touching – a must-read.” – W.E.B Griffin

Deadfall by Linda Fairstein – “Hunting a killer within New York’s urban jungle becomes the biggest case of Alexandra Cooper’s career in New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein’s latest riveting thriller.”

Cruel Winter by Sheila Connolly – “Maura Donovan’s Irish pub is running smoothly until a winter storm hits and she, some of her employees and regular patrons get snowed in overnight – along with a suspected killer in a cold case.”

Knife Creek by Paul Doiron – “When Maine game warden Mike Bowditch is tasked with shooting invasive feral hogs that are tearing up the forest in his district, he makes a horrific discovery ― a dead baby buried in a shallow grave. Even more disturbing: evidence suggests the infant was the child of a young woman who was presumed to have died four years earlier after she disappeared from a group rafting trip.“

Still Life by Louise Penny – “Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, has been found dead in the woods on Thankgiving morning. The locals are certain it’s a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Chief Inspector Armand  Gamache smells something foul this holiday season . . .”

The Late Show by Michael Connelly – “Renee Ballard is a fierce young detective fighting to prove herself on the LAPD’s toughest beat. One night she catches two assignments she doesn’t want to part with: the brutal beating of a prostitute left for dead in a parking lot and the killing of a young woman in a nightclub shooting.” 

All the Little Liars by Charlain Harris – “Aurora Teagarden is basking in her new pregnancy when disaster strikes her small Georgia town: four kids have gone missing from school―and her teenage brother, Phillip, is one of them.”

Dead to Begin With by Bill Crider – “In Clearview, Texas, a wealthy recluse has joined the community and is leading the restoration of an old opera house. When he falls to his death, Sheriff Dan Rhodes suspects that he’s been murdered, but there doesn’t seem to be a motive. Who would want to kill someone who’s helping the town and hasn’t been around long enough to make any enemies?”

The Fix by David Baldacci – “Amos Decker witnesses a murder just outside FBI headquarters. A man shoots a woman execution-style on a crowded sidewalk, then turns the gun on himself. The killing is baffling. Decker and his team can find absolutely no connection between the shooter–a family man with a successful consulting business–and his victim, a schoolteacher.” 

Pandemic by A.G. Riddle – “In Africa, a mysterious outbreak spreads quickly. Teams from the CDC and WHO respond, but they soon learn that there is more to the epidemic than they believed. It may be the beginning of a global experiment–an event that will change the human race forever.”

Robert B. Parker’s Little White Lies by Ace Atkins – “Connie Kelly thought she’d found her perfect man on an online dating site. He was silver-haired and handsome, with a mysterious background working for the C.I.A. She fell so hard for M. Brooks Welles that she wrote him a check for almost three hundred thousand dollars, hoping for a big return on her investment. But within weeks, both Welles and her money are gone.”
