Irreparable Harm by Melissa F. Miller
A Sasha McCandless Mystery
Publisher: Brown Street Books

About Irreparable Harm (from the publisher): There's a smartphone app capable of crashing a commercial jet. And it's for sale to the highest bidder …

Attorney Sasha McCandless is closing in on the prize: After eight years of long hours, she's about to make partner at a prestigious law firm. All she has to do is keep her head down and her billable hours up. Then a plane operated by her client slams into the side of a mountain, killing everyone aboard. She gears up for the inevitable civil lawsuits. But, as Sasha digs into the case, she learns the crash was no accident. She joins forces with a federal air marshal and they race to prevent another crash. People close to the matter start to turn up dead. And Sasha's next on the list. She'll need to rely on her legal training and Krav Maga training in equal measure to stop a madman and save herself.

Mysterious Reviews: The Best Mysteries of 2011

Mysterious Reviews

The title of this post is a little misleading, as the books listed below aren't necessarily the best mysteries of 2011, only the ones I most enjoyed reading and was most enthusiastic in reviewing. Only seven titles received my top rating of 5 stars — or diamonds, since that's the symbol I've chosen to use on the review summary page — but I am also listing six "honorable mention" books that would have received 4½ stars, if I actually had such a rating.

Another quick note: I'm only including those books I reviewed in this post. We oten feature guest reviewers; their choices as the best mysteries of the year aren't included here.

Herewith the best crime novels — mysteries, suspense novels, thrillers — reviewed by Mysterious Reviews during 2011, listed alphabetically by author.

Devil-Devil by Graeme Kent
Devil-Devil by Graeme Kent

Devil-Devil by Graeme Kent
Soho Crime (February 2011 Hardcover)

Of the three things I typically look for in a mystery — solid plot/storyline, strong characters, interesting setting — sometimes it only takes one to capture my imagination and set it apart from all the others. It's rare when it's all three, yet that is the case here. Nearly everything works well together: the incredibly realized characters, the spectacular setting, and an intriguing whodunit-style plot. This is an extraordinary debut.

Bad Bird by Chris Knopf
Bad Bird by Chris Knopf

Bad Bird by Chris Knopf
Minotaur Books (February 2011 Hardcover)

Chris Knopf frequently appears on my "best of" lists, and with good reason. I find his characters engaging and appealing, and his murder mystery plots, which tend to be deceptively simple on the surface, and delightfully complicated without being obtuse or contrived. Bad Bird is the second mystery in this series, which is actually a spin-off of his Sam Acquillo mysteries, another outstanding series of crime novels.

Storm Damage by Ed Kovacs
Storm Damage by Ed Kovacs

Storm Damage by Ed Kovacs
Minotaur Books (December 2011 Hardcover)

Storm Damage is another first-rate debut with a strongly developed lead character. I really enjoyed how the plot unfolded — this is definitely a mystery that's hard to predict what's going to happen next — though I dinged it ever so slightly in my review for leaning a bit too heavily on Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath in New Orleans.

Northwest Angle by William Kent Krueger
Northwest Angle by William Kent Krueger

Northwest Angle by William Kent Krueger
Atria Books (August 2011 Hardcover)

Rarely do I characterize a novel as heart-pounding suspense, but that's exactly what this one is. Crisply written, it takes place in a remote region of Minnesota, a setting that enhances an already thrilling storyline. Cork O'Connor's mentor Henry Meloux is one of the best supporting characters in any series, and it's always a pleasure to revisit him. As I stated in my review, "This find series just keeps getting better."

East on Sunset by Ken Mercer
East on Sunset by Ken Mercer

East on Sunset by Ken Mercer
Minotaur Books (June 2011 Hardcover)

I must say, my expectations for this novel were low given I really didn't enjoy its predecessor, the first in the series. Suffice it to say, no one was more surprised than me when I found myself riveted to the storyline here. I think a comment from my review sums it up best: "There are no eye-rolling 'gotcha' twists in East on Sunset; rather the reader will likely feel in the end as if they were being smartly played ... and they were."

All Cry Chaos by Leonard Rosen
All Cry Chaos by Leonard Rosen

All Cry Chaos by Leonard Rosen
The Permanent Press (September 2011 Hardcover)

There is a quiet confidence in this novel, from its strongly developed lead character to its really complicated — but in a good way — plot, that suggests the author has been at it for quite some time. Yet it is his first book, and simply stated it's a terrific one. I will be very surprised if this title doesn't appear as a nominee for best first mystery when awards are announced next year.

Liquid Smoke by Jeff Shelby
Liquid Smoke by Jeff Shelby

Liquid Smoke by Jeff Shelby
Tyrus Books (September 2011 Hardcover)

This relatively short, fast-paced mystery surprised me from the very beginning. It is an example of crime novel with a superficially predictable storyline that isn't, unfolding in unexpected ways. I had to include a minor spoiler in my review since the book's ending had me guessing as well: "It's hard to believe this character won't be heard from again, but it's also hard to see how he can return."

Read the complete text of my review at Mysterious Reviews: Liquid Smoke by Jeff Shelby.

— ◊ —

And now six mysteries that are definitely worth seeking out, but — for often really minor issues — didn't quite make the top tier on my list this year.

Hurt Machine by Reed Farrel Coleman. Tyrus Books (December 2011 Hardcover). One of the best murder mystery plots of the year … but with a narrative burdened by Moe Prager's diagnosis of stomach cancer.

The Trinity Six by Charles Cumming. St. Martin's Press (March 2011 Hardcover). A nuanced, smartly written thriller … but overly convoluted at times, and unnecessarily so.

Wyatt by Garry Disher. Soho Crime (August 2011 Hardcover). This winner of the 2010 Ned Kelly Award is a prequel to the series. Solidly written … but slightly uneven.

Trespasser by Paul Doiron. Minotaur Books (June 2011 Hardcover). Atmospheric with a well-crafted plot and a strong lead character … but not quite as polished as it could have been.

The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Marcus Sakey. Dutton (June 2011 Hardcover). One of the more original, cleverly devised crime novel plots of the year … but some story elements seem overly contrived.

Thick as Thieves by Peter Spiegelman. Knopf (July 2011 Hardcover). A crime caper novel with a superior storyline … but one that can be hard to follow at times and relies on an overused plot device in the end.

Jump Cut by Rory Tate

Jump Cut by Rory Tate
A Mimi Raynard Mystery
Publisher: CreateSpace

Rory Tate is a pen name used by crime novelist Lise McClendon. This book is the first in a new series.

About Jump Cut (from the publisher): Seattle reporter Mimi Raynard is having a bad week. Her ex-husband is now her boss at the TV station and wants her head on a platter. When three prostitutes die of a suspicious heroin overdose Mimi gets the story but in her nervous enthusiasm manages to bungle it. The narcotics detective on the case tries to help but both are out-foxed by the buxom intern. What’s a girl to do?

Desperate and out of ideas Mimi takes a friend’s advice and dresses up as a Russian Mafiya Madam for a resume tape she has no intention of sending out. But the lark turns serious when the intern steals the tape.

At the Seattle Police Department the narcotics detective Shad Mulgrew has his own career crisis. He is framed for stealing drugs from evidence. Are the murdered prostitutes linked to his case? Is he getting too close to the truth? And what is Mimi's father doing working for Eastern Europe's last Communists?

Working together to save their reputations, Mimi and Shad look for the truth, from the fishing docks of Puget Sound to the tiny Republic of Moldova.

The Ghosts of Belfast by Stuart Neville

The Ghosts of Belfast by Stuart Neville
Non-Series
Soho Crime

Originally published in the UK under the title The Twelve, this debut novel was the winner of the 2009 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the mystery/thriller category.

About The Ghosts of Belfast (from the publisher): Fegan has been a “hard man,” an IRA killer in northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by twelve ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he’s going to have to kill the men who gave him orders.

As he’s working his way down the list he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too. Now he has given Fate — and his quarry — a hostage. Is this Fegan’s ultimate mistake?

Watch a 10 Minute Preview to Next Week's Return of Revenge

Revenge (ABC)

The one stand-out new television show for us this season has been Revenge on ABC.

Emily VanCamp stars as Emily Thorne, who returns to the Hamptons home of her childhood to take revenge on the people who framed her father for a crime he didn't commit. The storylines are familiar and somewhat predictable, but what sets this series apart and keeps us coming back are the outstanding characters and the actors that portray them, in particular VanCamp and Madeleine Stowe as her nemesis Victoria Grayson.

ABC has released a 10-plus minute preview to next week's episode, "Duress", which airs on January 4th, 2012. We've embedded the video below.

Review: The Devil's Ribbon by D. E. Meredith

The Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, a teenager forced to compete in a nationally televised event in which "Tributes" must fight with one another until one survivor remains. It opens in US theaters March 23rd, 2012.

The Pawn by Steven James

The Pawn by Steven James
A Patrick Bowers Mystery
Revell

This is the first book in a series to feature FBI criminologist Patrick Bowers, which all feature chess pieces in their titles. In our review of this this thriller, we called it "intense", adding, "As Bowers pushes towards checkmate, it's never clear to the reader which pieces will be left standing at the end of the game."

About The Pawn (from the publisher): Special Agent Patrick Bowers had only met one man who made him truly afraid. Until now. When he's called to North Carolina to consult on the case of an area serial killer, he finds himself in a deadly game. Cunning and lethal, the killer is always one step ahead of the law, and he's about to strike again. It will take all of Bowers's instincts and training to stop this man who calls himself the Illusionist. And just when the pieces start to come together, Bowers realizes they're not quite adding up. Can he unravel the pattern and save the next victim? Or will the Illusionist win the game by taking one of his opponent's pieces?

The Detachment by Barry Eisler

The Detachment by Barry Eisler
A John Rain Thriller
Thomas & Mercer

This is the seventh — and most recently published (October 2011) — book in this series that features international assassin John Rain.

About The Detachment (from the publisher): When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America.

But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone. He’ll need a detachment of other deniable irregulars: his partner, the former Marine sniper, Dox. Ben Treven, a covert operator with ambivalent motives and conflicted loyalties. And Larison, a man with a hair trigger and a secret he’ll kill to protect.

From the shadowy backstreets of Tokyo and Vienna, to the deceptive glitz and glamour of Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and finally to a Washington, D.C. in a permanent state of war, these four lone wolf killers will have to survive presidential hit teams, secret CIA prisons, and a national security state as obsessed with guarding its own secrets as it is with invading the privacy of the populace.

But first, they’ll have to survive each other.

Mr. E. Reviews Without Motive

Without Motive (DVD Cover)
Purchase/Rental Option(s)
Without Motive on DVD

Though there is definitely a "whodunit" aspect to this British crime drama that originally aired about 10 years ago, the show is far more about how a high profile murder investigation affects the members of the investigating team, both professionally and personally. The second half is decidedly better than the first, but overall it's definitely worth seeing.
