My Murder by Katie Williams

Staff Pick

That the protagonist and her four fellow serial killer victims have been brought back and given a new chance at life as clones--one of the science fiction elements deftly woven through My Murder--gives a fresh twist to the classic murder mystery. Williams handles her characters with care and sympathy, lending the story unexpected depth and meaningfulness without breaking the narrative's propulsive flow, and though the nature of the mystery itself isn't immediately obvious, it eventually becomes clear that not everything here is as it seems, and the final reveals are just as satisfying as their build-up.

Exiles by Jane Harper

Staff Pick

I love Australian writer and ex-journalist Jane Harper’s mysteries and was excited that Exiles, the final installment of her Falk trilogywould once again feature Detective Aaron Falk. As with Harper's other books, this one unfolds in a uniquely Australian setting: the country's well-known wine country, and the plot centers on a shocking event—in this case the disappearance of a young mother who has left her baby in a pram at a carnival. To solve the mystery, Falk must unearth secrets kept by old friends and admit some of his own. As usual, Harper keeps the reader guessing through unexpected twists and turns that culminate in a believable and satisfying ending. My only regret is that finishing the book meant having to say farewell to the beloved Aaron Falk.

Beware the Woman by Megan Abbott

Staff Pick

Newly married and pregnant, Jacy joins her husband, Jedd, on their first joint trip to her new father-in-law’s cabin in Michigan’s remote Upper Peninsula. When Jacy has a health scare, her idyllic vacation morphs into a slow-burn horror story as Jedd’s father strips away Jacy’s privacy and autonomy bit-by-bit – all in the name of protecting his unborn grandchild. Utterly terrifying in its realism, Beware the Woman brims with tension rooted in pervasive dangers of everyday misogyny.
