Carolina Crimes by Nora Gaskin Esthimer, New on the Mystery Bookshelf during July 2017

Carolina Crimes by Nora Gaskin Esthimer

Carolina Crimes by Nora Gaskin Esthimer, A Short Story Collection

Publisher: Down & Out Books

Carolina Crimes by Nora Gaskin Esthimer, Amazon Kindle format

Carolina Crimes: 21 Tales of Need, Greed and Dirty Deeds is a collection of short stories by crime writers living in North and South Carolina, members of Sisters in Crime. The Triangle (Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, NC) Chapter of SinC issued the challenge to members to write stories about addiction or obsession and crime. Who knew that the responses would be so varied or that ice cream, a game of Solitaire, or silk fabric could provide motives to commit murder? Or that golf clubs, stiletto-heeled shoes, and microwave ovens could provide the means?

These stories remind us why we love crime fiction, and why it matters. They provide us with the cold revenge of imagination, the hot passion someone could kill for, and the sense of justice a community demands. They remind us we never know exactly what our next-door neighbor may be capable of, or for that matter, what we ourselves harbor in the deepest corners of our hearts and minds. The humor is dark. The suspense is shudder-producing. The horror delivers goosebumps. And by the time we turn the last satisfying page, we know more about what it means to be human.

"The Carolinas boast some of the finest crime writers ever to set ink to paper and pixels to disk, as this Sisters in Crime anthology attests. Just like a Carolina Sunday supper, these stories dish up a variety of styles, tones and tastes, from procedurals to cozies to dark psychological thrillers. Pour yourself a tall sweet tea or a couple of fingers of bourbon, sit back and dig in." — Jeffery Deaver

Three Minutes by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, New in Bookstores during July 2017

Today's featured new hardcover mystery, suspense, or thriller title scheduled to be published during July 2017 is …

Three Minutes by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom

Three Minutes by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, a Grens and Hoffmann Mystery (2nd in series)

Publisher: Quercus

Three Minutes by Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, Amazon Kindle format

Presumed dead by the Stockholm police, master criminal and undercover informant Piet Hoffmann is now on the run from the Swedish authorities, living with his wife and two young sons under an assumed name in Cali, Colombia. Only Hoffmann's former police handler, Erik Wilson, knows where he is — and that he has accepted two dangerous new jobs: one as a high-level enforcer for a Colombian cocaine cartel and one as an infiltrator for the DEA, working to bring the cartel down. The FBI even lends credence to his cover story by adding Hoffmann's alias to the Most Wanted list.

But when the Speaker of the House is kidnapped by the cartel during an official visit to Colombia, everything changes — fast. Hoffmann is party to the highest-profile political kidnapping in years and therefore directly in the firing line in what is quickly dubbed the "Final War on Drugs." Suddenly, the Most Wanted list becomes a kill list and the DEA cuts off all contact on orders from the top, leaving Hoffmann and his family stranded.

Hoffmann must walk a delicate line as he tries to protect his young family and keep up his dual role as a cartel enforcer and a deniable intelligence asset for the US government. It soon becomes clear that his only chance at getting out alive is to rescue the Speaker of the House and bring him back to the States — but to do it he'll need the help of Ewert Grens, the stubborn, dogged Stockholm detective who hasn't forgotten Hoffmann since the explosive showdown in Aspsas prison years ago.

Incarnate by Josh Stolberg

Incarnate by Josh Stolberg, A Novel of Suspense

Publisher: Atria Books

Incarnate by Josh Stolberg, Amazon Kindle format

An ambitious and sharp-witted clinical psychiatrist turns detective when one of her patients comes under investigation for a series of brutal murders — is she a psychopath or a victim herself?

Brilliant psychiatric resident Dr. Kim Patterson has one major flaw: she is too committed to her patients. Her willingness to break the rules and use unconventional methods to help her patients heal has already gotten her thrown out of several hospitals. And when Scarlett Hascall is brought into the psychiatric ward, Kim can't resist getting involved, even if it means breaking protocol — because Kim can see what the other doctors cannot. Scarlett is suffering from a rare condition: Dissociative Identity Disorder, otherwise known as Multiple Personalities.

But even Kim is at a loss when she realizes that some of Scarlett's alternate identities are claiming to be people who have gone missing from their town. And when Scarlett's alter identity "Izzi" knows way too much about the whereabouts of the missing Isabel Wilcox, the police begin to suspect that Scarlett may have been involved with Isabel's disappearance. Only Kim defends Scarlett, certain of the girl's innocence. But her new theory is a radical one, one she can hardly believe herself: What if Kim is channeling the troubled souls of these victims?

With the help of local police officer Zack Trainor, Kim digs further into Isabel's case, trying to find proof that Scarlett wasn't involved. The more they discover, the more it becomes apparent that something strange and frightening is going on with Scarlett. Is it possible she is truly harboring lost souls? Or is Scarlett playing a twisted game with her doctors and the police?
