Trudy Nan Boyce From Trudy Nan Boyce, an author with more than thirty years' experience in the Atlanta Police Department, comes Out of the Blue (Putnam, hardcover, $27.00, on sale 2/23/16), a riveting procedural debut introducing an unforgettable heroine. On her first day as a homicide detective, Sarah "Salt" Alt is given the cold-case murder of a blues musician. New evidence has come to light that his "accidental drug overdose" may not have been accidental. And this evidence comes from a convicted felon who put Salt herself behind bars and who is hoping to trade his knowledge for shortened prison time.


Trudy received her Ph.D. in community counseling before becoming a police officer for the City of Atlanta. During her more-than-thirty-year career, she served as a beat cop, homicide detective, senior hostage negotiator, and lieutenant. Boyce retired from the police department in 2008 and still lives in Atlanta.


John A. Connell From John A. Connell, the author of Ruins of War, comes Spoils of Victory (Berkley, hardcover, $27.00), an electrifying novel featuring U.S. Army criminal investigator Mason Collins, set in the chaos of post-World War II Germany. When the Third Reich collapsed, the small town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen became the home of fleeing war criminals, making it the final depository and a black market hub for the Nazis' stolen riches. Mason's friend, CIC Agent John Winstone, claims that a group of powerful men are taking over the lucrative trade, but before he can fully explain, Winstone and his girlfriend are brutally murdered.


John has worked as a cameraman on films such as Jurassic Park and Thelma & Louise and on TV shows including The Practice and NYPD Blue. He now lives with his wife in Madrid, Spain, where he is at work on the third in the Mason Collins series.


Bryan Robinson With its blend of humor, dark plot, and quirky characters, Bryan Robinson's debut novel, Limestone Gumption (Sunstone, paperback, $19.95), witnesses beauty and brutality in a small Southern town. This offbeat mystery offers you suspense, surprise, and plenty of chuckles along the way to its solution. The fast pace and twists and turns are as frequent and fast as they Suwannee River itself, and they will keep you on the edge of your seat or make you fall out of it laughing.


Bryan is a novelist and licensed psychotherapist. Limestone Gumption, his debut novel, won the 2014 Beverly Hills Book Award for Best Mystery. Book 2 in the Brad Pope and the Sisterfriends series, She'll Be Killing Around the Mountain When She Comes, is currently underway. He has also authored over 35 nonfiction books, which have been translated into thirteen languages. He has won two awards for his nonfiction writing and has appeared on numerous television shows. Bryan maintains a private clinical practice in Asheville and Charlotte, NC, and resides in the Blue Ridge Mountains with his partner, four dogs, and occasional bears at night.
