Set during World War II, Hirahara’s historical mystery features a young Nisei woman resettled in Chicago with her family after a stay in a forced internment camp. Aki and her parents expect to be reunited with Rose, Aki’s older sister, but when they arrive, they learn she died on the tracks of the El. The police say it was suicide, but Aki is convinced she was pushed. Clark and Division has a dynamic heroine, a compelling plot, and lots of Chicago detail that would appeal to not just mystery fans but readers of Renée Rosen’s historical novels.

After Daniel Sutherland is found brutally murdered on his boat, the lives of several seemingly unconnected women will collide in unimaginable ways. Laura has been struggling to stay afloat and keep her head down ever since an accident as a child left her with scars she wishes she could forget. Miriam knows an outsider when she sees one - it takes one to know one. So, when she discovers Daniel's body and realizes Laura was the last known person so see him alive, she takes it upon herself to help Laura, while possibly getting the revenge she has been longing for all these years. Meanwhile, Carla is spiraling - it was only a few months ago that her sister died suddenly and tragically. Now her nephew has been murdered. But with even more tragedy littering her past, she might do anything to find peace. All three women are harboring painful memories and secrets that threaten to pull them apart. What would they do to finally be able to move on? Not for the faintest of heart, Paula Hawkins’s latest is a dark and brutal story that kept me in my favorite chair reading from the first page to the very last.

St. Christopher’s is described as one of University of Cambridge’s smallest colleges, yet it feels filled with beautiful gardens, sunny open spaces, shady nooks, and numerous notable architectural features. At the same time, this small campus curiously holds the surprise of frighteningly dark corners. Some long-time employees here abuse privileges to merely gain private delight, while others win more substantial reward. In the midst of a liberal-leaning town, social disparities are in inverse proportion to the size of St. Christopher’s seemingly cozy setting. Perhaps this feeds the madness that is afoot? That is, the grizzly murders of young maidens. Filled with a cast of iron-strong wills and some perfectly placed, much-appreciated distractions, The Maidens will keep you on the edge of your seat to the end.

Jane Wunderly actually gets to help out on a case that she didn’t stumble into in the third outing from the author of Murder at the Mena House. Her beau Redvers has been assigned to find a spy on board a trans-Atlantic voyage, and he’s asked Jane to accompany him, posing as his wife. In their attempts to root out the foreign agent, Jane stumbles upon another mystery – a socialite who claims her husband has disappeared. Could they somehow be connected?  Figuring it out is just one of the delights of Neubauer’s latest, a mystery laced with espionage, humor, and romance. 

— Daniel Goldin

 

 

There's a spy aboard the RMS Olympic in 1926, and Jane Wunderly is on the case with Redvers, posing as his wife as they look for the suspect. But what starts out as a search for a spy becomes more complicated when a passenger's husband goes missing, yet his existence is disputed by all but the wife and Jane herself. With everyone else doubting the flighty socialite's claims, it's up to Jane to prove her investigative talents. Three books in, this series delivers! I love all of the historical detail so much, and I especially love that Jane flouts societal standards with quiet confidence. Much like Redvers, I would trust Jane's instincts any day. 

— Rachel Copeland

 

 

German spies, disappearing husbands, and gin rickeys abound aboard an Atlantic Ocean Liner in the 1920s, and globetrotting amateur detective Jane Wunderly and her cosleuthing faux-beau must sort it all out before the ship reaches shore or they find themselves overboard. If you’ve read the Wunder-ful previous installments, then you’re going to love how this book pays off on what’s come before. If you haven’t, who cares? Danger on the Atlantic is still guaranteed to delight. In fact, if you saw Death on the Nile and thought, “give me more of that,” then good news – Neubauer’s novel has the perfect vibes for you. A winner!

O’Donnell’s Victorian London is filled with grit, gore, lace, and grace, and enough humor and heart to soften the city’s sharp edges just as they begin to hurt. Young Bliss is urgently called to London by his only relative, an uncle who remains distant even while he supports Bliss’s Cambridge education. Bliss arrives at his uncle’s doorstep late the next evening, only to discover his uncle missing. Addled by worry, hunger and no sleep, Bliss finds himself employed the next morning by a brilliant but peculiar Scotland Yard detective who is investigating mysterious deaths of young women. A great variety of characters are pulled into the mystery as it threads its way through central London and eventually to a rural England ‘estate.’ This is an absolutely beguiling, visually rich mystery. More Paraic O’Donnell please!!!
