New books by old friends

In order of meeting them:

Where's the real cover, Ben?

The Art of Software Modeling
by Benjamin Lieberman

(No reviews yet. You can pre-order.)

In This Rain

by SJ Rozan

... social fabric so dense and so convincing that everyone in the Big Apple, from power-hungry politicos to money-hungry developers to survival-hungry street kids, comes alive. An exuberant celebration of the rainbow city in all its crime-drenched glory.
-- Kirkus

This is a New York story, steeped in political intrigue, ripe with descriptions of the city and its history. The payoff will be particularly rewarding for readers interested in big machines, both the kind that move earth and those behind political parties.
-- Publishers Weekly

From the mean streets of Harlem to the chilly corridors of City Hall, Rozan vividly evokes New York City in all its sound and fury.

What The Dead Know

by Laura Lippman

Read 'Em Their Writes: A Handbook for Mystery and Crime Fiction Book Discussions

by Gary Warren Niebuhr

Niebuhr, library director for Greendale and author of two previous mystery handbooks, has put together a guide for starting a mystery book club (perhaps a perfect post-holidays activity for winter). Along with tips and background information, sample questions are provided for 100 mysteries.
—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Big City, Bad Blood

by Sean Chercover

Real-life Chicago PI Chercover, in his impressive hard-boiled debut, introduces Ray Dudgeon, a former Chicago reporter disillusioned with the newspaper business who has turned private detective. ... Like many a classic PI, Dudgeon behaves according to his own subjective code. The author's considerable storytelling and characterization gifts compare favorably with those of Loren D. Estleman and other established masters of the crime genre.
--Publishers Weekly

The Devil's Pitchfork

by Mark Terry

A thrill ride in novel form, The Devil's Pitchfork is hands down one of the most gripping novels you'll read this year. The plot resonates deeply in our post 9/11 world and it also features one of the most compelling leading men in recent memory, Derek Stillwater. Quick-witted, willful, but somehow vulnerable, Stillwater is Jack Ryan before he lost a step. Rooting for him in his high stakes race against time is easy; anticipating his reactions to each successive shock and surprise is great fun.
--Mystery Scene

Jade Tiger

by Jenn Reese

Reese's vibrant debut introduces Shan Westfall, a half-Chinese, half-American crime fighter, who yearns to unite the mystical power of the Jade Circle, an ancient female order embodied by five jade animal artifacts. .... Reese choreographs both the romantic moves and the martial arts with flair. Juno is a new fantasy imprint of Wildside Press featuring strong female characters, exotic locales and romance.
--Publishers Weekly
