Featured Book

The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man

The first book in W. Bruce Cameron's beloved Repo Madness trilogy is a murder mystery and more — part sci-fi, part romance, lots of humor. Follow Ruddy McCann, who is haunted by a voice in his head, and his lazy but loyal basset hound Jake as this irresitible story unfolds.

The Heron's Cry

Ann Cleeves brings back detective Matthew Venn in her sequel to 'The Long Call,' the second in her Two Rivers series, which returns readers to North Devon and begins with a murder in a glassmaker's studio. 

The Boy in the Field

Margot Livesey's novel, which follows three teenage siblings just before Y2K, opens like a traditional English whodunit — hedges, a body, a detective — and becomes both a mystery and a coming-of-age story.


The Mountains Wild

The latest page-turner by Sarah Stewart Taylor was inspired by her experiences living in Ireland and by her fascination with memory and how we use memories to try to understand the people we love.

Murder at the Brightwell

The first installment in the Amory Ames series takes place in a posh resort and pays homage to Ashley Weaver's love of Golden Age mysteries, black-and-white films, and the ambiance of 1930s England.

The Long Call

Best-selling British crime author Ann Cleeves introduces readers to Detective Inspector Matthew Venn and takes them through a winding mystery full of secrets, lies and an ever-changing list of suspects.
