Deadline
Brown, Sandra
Dawson Scott is a well-respected journalist recently returned from Afghanistan. Haunted by everything he experienced, he’s privately suffering from battle fatigue which is a threat to every aspect of his life. But then he gets a call from a source within the FBI. A new development has come to light in a story that began 40 years ago. It could be the BIG story of Dawson’s career one in which he has a vested interest.
 
The Final Cut
Coulter, Catherine / Ellison, J. T.
Scotland Yard’s new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the “minder” of the Crown Jewels for the “Jewel of the Lion” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered.  Drummond, American-born but raised in the UK, is a dark, dangerous, fast-rising star in the Yard who never backs down.
 
The Mayan Secrets
Cussler, Clive / Perry, Thomas
Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery – the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen.  The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them as the Fargos are about to find out.
 
Dark Lycan
Feehan, Christine
Tatijana of the Dragonseekers spent centuries encased in ice with her sister, trapped in limbo between life and death, never speaking to a soul other than those who tormented her. Now, she has been freed from her frozen prison by an unknown descendent. Awakened in human form, Tatijana yearns to explore the modern world in which she now lives–a world with more mysteries than she is prepared for.
 
W Is for Wasted
Grafton, Sue
Two seemingly unrelated deaths, one a murder, the other apparently of natural causes.  In this multilayered tale, the surfaces seem clear, but the underpinnings are full of betrayals, misunderstandings, and outright murderous fraud. And Kinsey, through no fault of her own, is thoroughly compromised.
W is for . . . wanderer . . . worthless . . . wronged . . .W is for wasted.
 
The Bones of Paris: A Novel of Suspense
King, Laurie R.
Paris, France: September 1929. For Harris Stuyvesant, the assignment is a private investigator’s dream–he’s getting paid to troll the cafes and bars of Montparnasse, looking for a pretty young woman.  Soon it becomes clear that one missing girl is a drop in the bucket. Here, amid the glittering lights of the cabarets, hides a monster whose artistic “coup de grace” is to be rendered in blood.

Blind Justice: A William Monk Novel
Perry, Anne
In Perry’s stunning new novel, Hester Monk, the wife of William Monk, commander of the Thames River Police, questions the finances of a London church whose members’ hard-earned charitable gifts appear to have ended up in the pocket of charismatic preacher Abel Taft, paying for his fine home and the stylish outfits of his wife and daughters.
 
Thankless in Death
Robb, J. D.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke’s big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.  Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned–and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son.
