Spring is finally here!

And while we're excited about the new (and hopefully much warmer) weatherwe're also excited about some new books soon to be hitting shelves. This May, Lynne Raimondo's blind and ever-sarcastic psychiatrist Mark Angelotti returns in Dante's Poison. In what author Brad Parks calls "a mesmerizing read," Mark can't resist digging deeper into a case that involves both the courtroom and his medical profession, even when his life is in danger.


Out now is the Detective Sean Duffy novel, In the Morning I'll Be Gone by Adrian McKinty. Duffy, a conflicted Catholic cop working in the Ireland during the Troubles, was recently praised by the Boston Globe as "utterly and pleasurably human." 


"Complex, authentic, surprising...this engaging and compelling hero will change your perception and win your heart."

-Hank Phillippi Ryan


Wisecracking psychiatrist Mark Angelotti returns this May in Dante's Poison from Lynne Raimondo. In the heart of Chicago, Mark has just enrolled in a drug trial that may restore his eyesight when he's enlisted to help Hallie Sanchez defend her oldest friend on murder charges. When muckraking journalist Rory Gallagher falls dead from a fatal dose of Lucitrol, a powerful antipsychotic drug, suspicion immediately falls on his longtime lover, attorney Jane Barrett, who has just successfully defended the drug's manufacturer against product-liability claims. Mark and Hallie succeed in obtaining Barrett's release, only to discover that Gallagher's killer may still be on the loose-and targeting them as his next victims.

"A taut, compelling, very moving debut novel that invites us into a murder, and into the life of a wonderful main character."

-Louise Penny


Join blind psychiatrist Mark Angelotti as he makes his debut in Dante's Wood. When Charlie Dickerson, a mentally handicapped teenager and Mark's newest client, confesses to the murder of his teacher, Mark volunteers to testify on his behalf. But soon paternity tests show the victim was pregnant with Charlie's child, and it's up to Mark to prove Charlie's innocence in a case where nothing is as first meets the eye. Library Journal named Dante's Wood its Mystery Debut of the Month and called it "a real keeper."

"Riveting police procedurals in the political context of The Troubles.... McKinty's novels are also shot through with a smart, crackling humor that manages to be both dark and witty."

-Boston Globe 


Out this month, In the Morning I'll Be Gone, finds Duffy recruited by the British intelligence agency MI5 to hunt down Dermot McCann, an IRA master bomber who has escaped from the notorious Maze Prison. During his investigation Duffy discovers a woman who may hold the key to Dermot's whereabouts, if he can solve her case in time. Meanwhile the clock is ticking down to the Conservative Party Conference in Brighton, where Mrs. Thatcher is due to give a keynote speech. The Sunday Times of London says In the Morning I'll Be Gone "becomes a locked room mystery within a manhunt killer, a clever and gripping set-up that helps makes Duffy's third outing easily his best so far."
