MAPPING MURDER by William Andrews: Danger has found museum director Julie Williamson once again when an annual convention of historical society directors puts her in the path of a troubled colleague. Precious artifacts are missing and landing in the hands of unscrupulous dealers to the south. Williamson immediately senses foul play. When the colleague mysteriously winds up dead, and more thefts occur, Ryland’s favorite puzzle-solving amateur detective can’t resist setting a trap. In his third Julie Williamson mystery, Andrews brings back a beloved cast of characters to help Williamson chase down the confounding clues. A case of historical whodunit and why, set against a backdrop of the rolling hills and picturesque towns of Western Maine that is sure to keep you up reading all night.
STRAW MAN by Gerry Boyle: When worlds collide, few are spared the collateral damage—least of all crime reporter Jack McMorrow, who has learned the hard way that trouble blooms where the cracks in human relationships meet. In this, the latest installment of the bestselling McMorrow mystery series, veteran author Gerry Boyle takes his readers into territory all-too familiar from the daily headlines: illegal gun sales, culture clashes between old and new, cyberbullying, and the random violence that poses a threat to even the closest of communities. Prosperity, Maine is no longer the refuge from the real world that it once was, and Jack, and his wife, Roxanne, will be forced to face what might be their most destructive enemy yet—each other.
LED ASTRAY by Kate Flora: Responding to a "shots fired" call at an abandoned warehouse, Detective Joe Burgess realizes his worst nightmare when he finds one rookie officer shot dead and two other officers--one his lieutenant--gravely wounded. With two brother officers near death, Burgess must race the clock to find and arrest the one person angry enough to seek revenge against the Portland police, before the rookie officer's funeral turns into a killing field.
