A Blood Red Morning (2024)
(Henri Lefort Mysteries, book 3)
Mark Pryor
"Atmosperic and engaging...it chills and thrills in equal measure."

A Traitor in Whitehall (2023)
(Evelyne Redfern / Parisian Orphan, book 1)
Julia Kelly
"In Winston Churchill's London underground bunker, Kelly spins an Agatha Christie-esque mystery featuring-who else?-one of Mr. Churchill's whip-smart secretaries, of course! A thoroughly delightful and well-researched novel of London during the Blitz."
thumb
The Lindbergh Nanny (2022)
Mariah Fredericks
"A compelling, fast-paced, and always humane keyhole view of the kidnapping, murder, and criminal investigation of golden-boy aviator Charles Lindbergh's son--from the below-stairs nanny, Betty Gow--who must find the real killer to avoid being charged herself. A fresh, penetrating, and profound take on "the crime of the century."
