THE MOUTH OF THE CROCODILE by Michael Pearce
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: March 1, 2015

"A curiosity among Owen's 17 decorous period cases (The Bride Box, 2013, etc.): half high-risk adventure, half low-impact sleuthing, with the Mamur Zapt overshadowed by his hireling's investment-minded wife, the Pasha's sheltered but charming lady, and the alarmingly precocious Aisha."
1913. The Mamur Zapt escorts a nervous pasha home from a small town in the Sudan, where life is as predictably unpredictable as it is in Egypt. Read full book review >
STAR FALL by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: March 1, 2015

"Though the answers aren't nearly as interesting as the questions themselves, Harrod-Eagles (Hard Going, 2014, etc.) is never less than expert in presenting suspects, combing through the evidence, varying the tone and showing new ways that Egerton was even more of a bounder than you suspected."
DI Bill Slider asks why the thief who killed West London television personality Rowland Egerton in his home ignored his wallet and most of his treasures and made off with exactly two items. Read full book review >

THE TOMB IN TURKEY by Simon Brett
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: March 1, 2015

"The sitcom humor is anodyne but gently effective. There are so few suspects that you'll spot the killer early on, unless of course you're Jude, preoccupied with the men staring at her cleavage, or Carole, checking to make sure she's remembered to take along her Imodium."
Vacationing in Turkey, amateur sleuths Carole Seddon and Jude Nichol bring their unique combination of lightweight Fethering conflicts and murder most foul with them. Read full book review >

FALSE IMPRESSION by Veronica Heley
MYSTERY & CRIME

THE HOUSE OF WOLFE by James Carlos Blake
MYSTERY & CRIME
Released: March 3, 2015

"Slightly less violent and slower paced than Blake's last look at the Wolfe family (The Rules of Wolfe, 2013), this installment is an absorbing look at dire poverty, depravity and the all-too-successful business of kidnapping for profit."
Even for criminals, there's no such thing as a perfect plan. Read full book review >

WHAT THE FLY SAW by Frankie Y. Bailey
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 3, 2015

"The distracting alternate future seems like the kind of thing that might have been dreamed up by someone writing about 2020 in 1970, not 2015. The plot is confusingly unrelated to the setting and is standard procedural fare, though a hook at the end portends better developments in the future."
A pseudo-futuristic world features two detectives investigating the death of a man no one had reason to kill. Read full book review >
Kirkus Interview
Pierce Brown
author of GOLDEN SON
February 17, 2015

With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, Pierce Brown’s genre-defying Red Rising hit the ground running. The sequel, Golden Son, continues the saga of Darrow, a rebel battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom. As a Red, Darrow grew up working the mines deep beneath the surface of Mars, enduring backbreaking labor while dreaming of the better future he was building for his descendants. But the Society he faithfully served was built on lies. Darrow’s kind have been betrayed and denied by their elitist masters, the Golds—and their only path to liberation is revolution. “Stirring—and archetypal—stuff,” our reviewer writes. View video >
