Published: Henry Holt and Co. - August 4th, 2020

Thirty years prior to living in self- imposed exile, Grant McAllister wrote The White Murders, seven murder mysteries that cover his seven mathematical rules to detective fiction. Now, Julia Hart, editor of Blood Type Books, has come knocking on his door. After discovering Grant's book in a box of secondhand books, Julia's publisher would like to reprint The White Murders for a new audience. As she reads Grant's stories and the more time she spends with him, Julia begins to suspect that there is an all too real mystery to unravel. With alternating chapters between editor and author and the seven whodunits from The White Murders, The Eighth Detective is a one-of-a-kind mystery!

Published: Celadon Books - July 7th, 2020

Keep the lights on for this one. The Shadows capitalizes off that feeling you get when you're home alone, it's eerily quiet, and you think there's something moving in the darkness from out the corner of your eye. It's not outright terrifying, it's tense and unsettling, which is arguably worse. Alex North knows how to balance the natural and the supernatural with smooth, no nonsense prose. The ritualistic killing of a teenager 25 years ago spawns multiple copycat killings. Paul, who was friends with the original victim and perpetrators all those years ago, finds evidence of something sinister in the woods surrounding his small town. Detective Amanda Beck's investigation into the most recent murder takes her to those same woods, nicknamed "The Shadows." Both characters find themselves circling the darkness, getting closer to the unsettling truth, and daring to confront what's patiently waiting for them deep within The Shadows.

Published: Ballantine Books - August 25th, 2020

This book was so, so difficult to put down, and the first thing I’d pick up when free time arrived. It’s the near future; economic woes have killed Main Street and jobs are hard to find. The Cloud owns pretty much everything worth owning; warehouses are everywhere, delivering products via drone. People live ‘on campus’ in pathetically tiny apartments and mostly eat lousy fast-food. Paxton reluctantly applies for a job, as does Zinnia (she has a big$$ contract to find out how one particular warehouse gets its power with little apparent power infrastructure). Paxton is assigned to security and Zinnia is a warehouse runner (impossible job). They meet and start dating. Everyone wears a watch 24/7 that gives them access appropriate to their job, tracks their whereabouts, and constantly monitors both their work and personal performance and adjusts their ratings as needed on a 1-5 star scale, readable by anyone. Not a happy place. Paxton's security job and Zinnia's private job generate most of the action, but it’s the (unfortunately) believable setting that keeps the pages turning.
