<b>A<i> NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW</i> BEST CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR</b><b><i></i><i></i><br /></b><b>Harry Bosch and LAPD Detective </b><b>Renée Ballard come together again on the murder case that obsessed Bosch's mentor, the man who trained him---new from #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Michael Connelly</b> <b><br /></b> <br />Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, John Jack Thompson, is dead, and his widow gives Bosch a murder book, one that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD twenty years before -- the unsolved killing of a troubled young man.<br /><br />Bosch takes the murder book to Detective Renée Ballard and asks her to help him discover what about this crime lit Thompson's fire all those years ago. As she begins her inqueries -- while still working her own cases on the midnight shift -- Ballad finds aspects of the initial investigation that just don't add up.<br /><br />The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a disturbing question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved? <br />Written with the intense pacing and masterful suspense that have made Michael Connelly "the hard-boiled fiction master of our time" (NPR),<i> The Night Fire</i> continues the unofficial partnership of two fierce detectives determined not to let the fire with burn out.

<b>Virgil Flowers will have to watch his back--and his mouth--as he investigates a college culture war turned deadly in another one of Sandford's "madly entertaining Virgil Flowers mysteries" (<i>New York Times Book Review</i>).</b><br /><br />At the local state university, two feuding departments have faced off on the battleground of science and medicine. Each carries their views to extremes that may seem absurd, but highly educated people of sound mind and good intentions can reasonably disagree, right? <br /><br />Then a renowned and confrontational scholar winds up dead, and Virgil Flowers is brought in to investigate . . . and as he probes the recent ideological unrest, he soon comes to realize he's dealing with people who, on this one particular issue, are functionally crazy. Among this group of wildly impassioned, diametrically opposed zealots lurks a killer, and it will be up to Virgil to sort the murderer from the mere maniacs.

<b>A REESE WITHERSPOON x HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK</b><b><br /></b><b>A true-crime podcast sets a trophy wife's present life on a collision course with her secret past in this thriller from Denise Mina. </b><b><br /></b>The day Anna McDonald's quiet, respectable life exploded started off like all the days before: Packing up the kids for school, making breakfast, listening to yet another true crime podcast. Then her husband comes downstairs with an announcement, and Anna is suddenly, shockingly alone.<br />Reeling, desperate for distraction, Anna returns to the podcast. Other people's problems are much better than one's own -- a sunken yacht, a murdered family, a hint of international conspiracy. But this case actually is Anna's problem. She knows one of the victims from an earlier life, a life she's taken great pains to leave behind. And she is convinced that she knows what really happened.<br />Then an unexpected visitor arrives on her front stoop, a meddling neighbor intervenes, and life as Anna knows it is well and truly over. The devils of her past are awakened -- and in hot pursuit. Convinced she has no other options, she goes on the run, and in pursuit of the truth, with a washed-up musician at her side and the podcast as her guide.<br /><b>"Daredevil storytelling at its finest...Offers plot twists and zig-zags that take readers on a wild ride...A giddy celebration of the art of storytelling itself." --NPR's <i>Fresh Air</i></b>
