Don't forget to check out these new bestsellers!

A Dangerous Place (Maisie Dobbs Series #11) by Jacqueline Winspear

…the latest installment of Jacqueline Winspear's consistently interesting series…Try as she might to concentrate on a murder case, [Maisie's] drawn into a climate of political intrigue that repels her—but keeps the rest of us avidly reading.


All the Old Knives by Olen Steinhauer

 
…Olen Steinhauer's unusually short and wily spy novel…[is a] sneaky little gem…Mr. Steinhauer finds ways to work many different perspectives—even those of the wait staff, very briefly—into the seemingly simple story of one little amorous evening for old times' sake…Mr. Steinhauer sustains the difficult balancing act of melding a heart-racing espionage plot with credible dinner table conversation. He never violates the book's basic premise, not even when his characters begin to have the darkest suspicions about each other.


Cold Betrayal (Ali Reynolds Series #10) by J. A. Jance
 
Ali Reynolds and her friend Sister Anselm are back, this time to rescue an elderly widow and a runaway teen. … The two unrelated plotlines give the impression that Jance (Moving Target, 2014, etc.) didn’t have enough of either for a complete story. Yet Ali’s good heart and sense of justice combine with well-paced suspense to create a satisfying whole greater than the sum of its parts.
