There's an entire pile of October books. You'll want to check out some of these, I'm sure.
Some months, one book stands out. You'll want to watch for Lou Berney's November Road. It's set against the background of JFK's assassination, and centers on a desperate chase across 1960s America. Frank Guidry has always been a loyal lieutenant to New Orleans' mob boss Carlos Marcello, but it's his turn to be expendable. He knows too much about the crime of the century, the assassination of JFK. And, everyone who connect Marcello to that event is dead within two weeks. Guidry takes off across country, and he shouldn't stop. But, he stops to help a woman, her daughters and a dog, another person on the run. And, fugitives shouldn't fall in love. (Release date is Oct. 9.)
In Bradley Harper's A Knife in the Fog, a young Doctor Arthur Conan Doyle is invited to assist the Metropolitan Police as a "consultant" in the search for a serial killer who becomes known as Jack the Ripper. He agrees, as long as his mentor, Professor Joseph Bell will assist. But, the third member of their trio, hired as their guide, is a reporter and writer, Miss Margaret Harkness. It's an intriguing case that combines history and fiction. (Release date is Oct. 2.)
