Perfidia
Ellroy, James
Ellroy is back with the first book in a second “L.A. Quartet” and the same darkly stylish crime writing that made him famous. With the internments that commenced after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, a Japanese American family is found dead in Los Angeles. Was it murder or ritual suicide? That question ends up involving a top-notch Japanese American forensic chemist, a risk-taking young woman, real-life police officer William “Whiskey Bill” Parker, and corrupt police office Dudley Smith of L.A. Confidential fame.
 
Murder 101: A Decker/Lazarus Novel
Kellerman, Faye
As a detective lieutenant with the LAPD, Peter Decker witnessed enough ugliness and chaos for a lifetime. Now, he and his devoted wife Rena Lazarus are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York, where they can be closer to their four adult children and their foster son. But working for the Greenbury Police department isn’t as fulfilling as Decker hoped. While Rina has adapted beautifully to their new surroundings, Decker is underwhelmed and frustrated by his new partner, Tyler McAdams, a former Harvard student and young buck with a bad ‘tude. Just when he thinks he’s made a mistake, Decker is called to his first real crime here–a possible break-in at the local cemetery.
 
Son of No One
Kenyon, Sherrilyn
In Son of No One, next in the blockbuster The Dark-Hunters series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, it’s not easy being life’s own personal joke, but Josette Landry has made an unstable peace with the beast. Completely down on her luck, Josette takes a job with a local paranormal group as a photographer and camerawoman. Yeah, they’re even crazier than she is. The only paranormal thing she believes in is the miracle that keeps her rusted out hoopty running. But when something truly evil is released into the world, they are forced to call in reinforcement.
 
Angels Walking
Kingsbury, Karen
When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.
 
The Children Act
McEwan, Ian
Ever sensitive to the nuances of contemporary life, McEwan gives us a heroine named Fiona Maye who serves as a High Court judge in London presiding over cases in family court. When she refuses husband Jack’s request for an open marriage, he leaves. Even as she ponders whether she was resisting the loss of love or of respectability, Fiona dedicates herself to the difficult case of a 17-year-old whose parents won’t allow him a lifesaving blood transfusion because of religious beliefs.
