Where to start with the books that arrived last week? I have books in this pile from some of the authors that are on my "favorite author" list. Thank you to the authors and a few publishers who sent these books. I can't wait to read and discuss them!
Hillerman prize winner Tricia Fields takes readers back to the bordertown of Artemis, Texas in Scratchgravel Road. When Josie Grey, police chief of Artemis, finds Cassidy Harper nearly dead of heatstroke beside the body of a Mexican immigrant, the woman can't explain why she's there, or how she came upon the corpse. When Josie examines the man's wounds, she knows she needs to find answers fast, before her own life is in danger.
Crossbones Yard is a debut psychological thriller by Kate Rhodes. Psychologist Alice Quentin is well-respected, has a good-looking boyfriend, and her hands full with her job, her personal life, and trying to keep her brother out of trouble. But, she agrees to help the police build a psychological profile of a killer whose methods resemble that of a duo who were sent to jail for torturing and killing thirteen women. Then her research indicates that the killer might be closer than she ever imagined.
I'm certainly lucky to have this collection of books arrive in my mailbox this past week!
