Jenna Palmer is recovering from a divorce that left her broke and furious after her ex ran off with the bartender from the local biker bar and her half of a lottery jackpot. Luckily, her P.I. business is paying the bills, and she's doing OK — until her ex turns up dead in her own home. Now she has to solve the toughest case of her fledgling career — or she could end up in jail for the crime herself.

The distractingly handsome, by-the-book Detective Bryce Johnson is also on the case, and Jenna is his prime suspect. Time is running out, and leads are tough to find. While Jenna's chasing down clues, Detective Johnson is chasing her, convinced that she knows more than she's telling. There's an undeniable chemistry sparking between them, but there's a murder to solve and justice to be served.

In Victorian London's cesspool of crime and disease, a series of murders remains undiscovered until a cholera victim is found floating in the city's drinking water supply. Dr Anton Kronberg, England's best bacteriologist, is called upon to investigate and finds evidence of abduction and medical maltreatment.

While Scotland Yard has little interest in pursuing the case, Kronberg pushes on and crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes. The detective immediately discovers Kronberg's secret — a woman masquerading as a man in order to practice medicine — a criminal deed that could land her in prison for years to come. But both must join forces to stop a crime so monstrous, it outshines Jack the Ripper's deeds in brutality and cold-bloodedness.

An Early Grave by Robert McCracken, Amazon Kindle format

A baby discovered six inches underground and never claimed. A sympathy card received before a tragic accident. A brutal copycat of a historical murder. And a missing person, not heard from in a decade. All these crimes seem unconnected save for one thing: a ski trip that changed the lives of eight Oxford students forever.

But when Detective Inspector Tara Grogan begins investigating the murder of an unidentified teenage girl in Liverpool, she is unexpectedly drawn into a complex case that takes her back to her own university days at Latimer College, Oxford. She finds herself trading her help in return for clues into the girl's murder from the prime suspect, a man she struggles to believe to be capable of murder. The investigation sees Tara risking her job and even her life to piece together evidence scattered in time and place. She must uncover secrets of the past before she can solve her own case, and that of her conspiracy theorist suspect before his killer strikes again … if there is even a killer at all.

Every hour explosions rock America. There is no rhyme or reason to where they appear: big cities, small towns, even rural back roads. The sinister message that suddenly appears on America's computer screens is clear: No one is safe …

• Not disgraced FBI agent Grant, awaiting his call back to the big time;
• Not rapper Pal Joey, an international sensation;
• Not savvy, stunning beauty Caitlin, the ultimate Sin City party girl;
• Not even Naseem, the would-be martyr who helped plan the attacks and now finds himself double-crossed.

As an unhinged mastermind paralyzes a nation, these unlikely heroes must put aside their pasts and work together to stop him before more hours bring more disasters.

All roads lead to Las Vegas, where the plan begins to unravel. Can four people, united only by their hatred of this singular villain, finally stop Sabotage?

When Tahoe Detective Owen McKenna gets a call from a woman who's afraid for her life, it sounds like she is excessively paranoid. McKenna investigates and discovers that two other people have already died. He believes the killer is after something worth millions, a precious artifact that dates back to Renaissance Italy. When McKenna finds a connection between the victims and a famous retired pro football tackle named Adam Simms, he worries that Simms will be the next victim.

Simms seems gentle as a teddy bear. But decades of football gave Simms Traumatic Brain Injury, causing loss of memory and worse. When Simms can't remember details of his relationship to the other victims, McKenna begins to wonder if it's because Simms is suffering dementia or if he's a diabolical fake. As McKenna pursues the case, he will need every bit of strength and skill, for the murderer is determined to kill McKenna in the most vicious way imaginable …

Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations.

Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case … all while trying not to blow her cover.

Publisher: Thomas & Mercer

Cold Black Earth by Sam Reaves, Amazon Kindle format

When Rachel Lindstrom fled from her rural hometown in western Illinois to join the State Department and see the world, she never expected to return with her life in tatters. But after the horrors of war and a painful divorce, the only place where she can rebuild is the town she once escaped.

At home, however, there is little comfort. Her brother, still reeling from his wife's suicide, struggles to run the family farm and handle a hell-raising son. Rachel's arrival also draws a pair of rival suitors: her brother's handsome friend and a rough-hewn sheriff's deputy who pined for her in high school. Romance is the last thing on Rachel's mind, but a little comfort would be nice — except for the complications.

When a deranged killer escapes from a local prison, the far-flung farmsteads go on high alert — especially when the bodies start turning up. And in a county where the miles outnumber the people, it soon becomes clear that the madman is close behind Rachel.

The Burn Palace by Stephen Dobyns, Amazon Kindle format

The sleepy community of Brewster, Rhode Island, is just like any other small American town. It's a place where most of the population will likely die blocks from where they were born; where gossip spreads like wildfire, and the big entertainment on weekends is the inevitable fight at the local bar. But recently, something out of the ordinary — perhaps even supernatural — has been stirring in Brewster.

While packs of coyotes gather on back roads and the news spreads that a baby has been stolen from Memorial Hospital (and replaced in its bassinet by a snake), a series of inexplicably violent acts begins to confound Detective Woody Potter and the local police — and inspire terror in the hearts and minds of the locals.

A sacred artifact. A burned-out detective. A trail of bodies from Brentwood to Boyle Heights …

The murder of a popular university professor unearths a mystery involving a 2,000-year-old religious relic stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

The object, secretly referred to as "the antiquity", is rumored to possess supernatural powers. LAPD homicide detective Jack Sheridan is skeptical … until his hunt for the killer leads him deep into a world of dark forces, shadowy characters and unexplainable incidents.

For Sheridan, the most startling coincidence is personal: this case is inextricably linked to a painful secret from his past. Forced to confront his demons, he soon uncovers an insidious conspiracy that threatens the future of humanity itself.
