The Merrick Library has a fantastic selection on mystery titles. These are just of few of our upcoming titles for May.
By Joseph Finder
A total wow of a read, Finder's second novel starring Nick Heller (after Vanished, 2009), who does intelligence work for private clients, backed up by staff including a digital forensics expert, gets off to a quick start and keeps the throttle wide open for the whole ride. This is the kind of book you have to look up from, every once in a while, just to collect yourself.
By John Hart
It isn't as if Hart's career needed jump-starting. His first three stand-alone thrillers have been greeted by an ever-growing crescendo of praise, including two Edgar Awards. Definitely not the kind of writer who needs a breakthrough book. And, yet, Iron House lifts Hart to an altogether new level of excellence.
The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes
By Marcus Sakey
A man awakens on a deserted beach, naked, wet, and suffering from hypothermia. He has no idea who he is, where he is, or how he got there. He staggers to a Beemer parked behind the beach. In it, he finds warmth, clothes that fit him, cash, a Rolex, a gun, and a car registration in the name of Daniel Hayes of Malibu, California.
By Jane Bradley
Bradley gives readers a searing three-dimensional look at a horrific crime in her mesmerizing debut, which is narrated in turn by everyone affected by the cold-blooded murder, including the sweet-natured victim, the sociopathic killer, his weak-willed companion, and most memorably, the tough, brave woman who heads a search team.
