Dark Times in the City by Gene Kerrigan

An ordinary man gets caught up in a tempestuous whirlwind of gangland violence. Blackmailed into participating in the planning of an epic retribution and saddled with his own dark past, Danny Callaghan has few options and fewer allies. The novel’s dismal portrayal of Dublin’s underbelly is paired with fast-paced criminal plotting to create a cathartic voyage through blood-soaked streets.

Death of a Nightingale by Lene Kaaberbøl & Agnete Friis

Ever since I read The Boy in the Suitcase by this talented Danish duo, I have been hooked by their writing. This newest book follows in the same vein—Nordic noir fiction focused on the criminal mistreatment of women and children. In it, Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg is reintroduced when Natasha, one of the women who took refuge at the crisis center where Nina works, shows up on the news as being a suspect in the death of her abusive fiancé. As Nina struggles to both understand the complexity of Natasha’s predicament and protect Natasha’s daughter, she realizes there is much she doesn’t know about Natasha and her past. The mystery has long and bloody roots, going back to a famine that devastated Stalinist Ukraine in 1934, when a 10-year-old girl with the voice of a nightingale sang her family into shallow graves. A beautiful but suspenseful read that will keep you guessing until the end.

Spider Woman’s Daughter by Anne Hillerman

“From the utterly shocking opening scene to the final twist, Anne Hillerman offers a thrilling Southwestern tale featuring the unforgettable characters of Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, set in the vivid landscapes of Navajo country. Spider Woman’s Daughter is a must read for anyone who loved the great Tony Hillerman novels, now carried on by his amazingly talented daughter, a superb writer herself. I dearly hope this is the first of many.” —Douglas Preston
