Washington DC is the setting of the annual library conference and Ally Derringer is anticipating a magnificent event to cap off her year as president. Many new members have recently joined, although it is unclear why. The festive atmosphere is interrupted as an unsolved murder threatens to wreck the conference. Strangely, few conventioneers seem sad that the librarian is dead. Instead, some seem positively joyous. The library association is dominated by radical liberals who feel no empathy with the demise of a conservative. Is the killer an angry ex-flame? Someone hiding criminal behavior? A political opponent? Or was it an act of terrorism by an extremist? The Three Biblioteers, making their first appearance, form an alliance hoping to solve the puzzling case. 224p.

How can you solve a murder when the clues are so dumb? Private investigator Trike Augustine may be a brainiac with deductive skills to rival Sherlock Holmes, but they’re not doing him any good at solving the case of a missing gazzilionaire because the clues are so stupefyingly—well, stupid. Meanwhile, his sidekicks—Max the former FBI agent and Lola the artist—don’t quite rise to the level of Dr. Watson, either. For example, when a large, dead pig turns up on Trike’s floor in the middle of the night, none of them can figure out what it means. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking as the astronomical reward being offered diminishes drastically every day. That, plus the increasing reality that their own lives are in danger, lift this astonishing debut beyond its hilarious premise—a smart man befuddled by the idiotic—and turns it into something more than just a smart homage to Sherlock (with maybe a touch of early Jonathan Lethem thrown in). It becomes a compelling and compulsive thriller . . . with the added bonus that the prose is often as breathtaking as the tale.

It wasn’t Leonard Dykes’s writing style that offended. But something in his unpublished tome seemed to lead everyone who read it to a very unhappy ending. Now four people are dead, including the unfortunate author himself, and the police think Nero Wolfe is the only man who can close the book on this novel killer. So the genius sleuth directs his sidekick to set a trap . . . and discovers that the truth is far stranger—and far bloodier—than fiction. Introduction by David Handler “It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.”—The New York Times Book Review A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America’s greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained—and puzzled—millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.

"Vividly transforms Ms. Genovese from an iconic urban martyr to a three-dimensional protagonist in a case that transformed the criminal justice system." —Sam Roberts, New York Times In 1964 Catherine "Kitty" Genovese was brutally stabbed to death on her front stoop in plain view of numerous witnesses. Her sensational case provoked an anxious outcry and became the stuff of urban legend. Kevin Cook’s “provocative” (Wall Street Journal) investigation upends the simple story we thought we knew. His unprecedented minute-by-minute reconstruction of the crime shatters the fable of the 38 passive witnesses—a myth perpetuated by the New York Times, movies, TV programs, and countless psychology textbooks. For the first time, Cook introduces us to a neighbor who did intervene, and he brings to life a vibrant and charismatic Kitty, working (and dancing) her way through the colorful, fast-changing New York of the ’60s.

From the New York Times–bestselling author: The shocking true story of the murders at ABC News journalist Sam Donaldson’s New Mexico ranch. ABC News journalist Sam Donaldson needed a new manager for his sprawling New Mexico ranch. He found the perfect hire in Paul Posey, who quickly settled into his new life with his family in tow. Then, in July 2004, Donaldson was stunned to discover that his ranch had become a blood-soaked crime scene. The bullet-riddled bodies of Paul, his wife, and stepdaughter were found buried in a pile of manure. Paul’s fourteen-year-old son, Cody, was soon in custody. But the shocking revelations had only just begun . . . The Poseys appeared to be an ordinary American family. But was their seeming normalcy a carefully constructed veneer? Cody claimed he had suffered years of relentless physical and psychological abuse at the hands of his father, stepmother, and stepsister. Witnesses at the trial included Sam Donaldson, as well as neighbors who supported Cody’s claims—and others who disputed them. Was Cody a cold-blooded killer? Or was he acting in self-defense? It would be up to a jury to separate the lies from the truth, and decide the fate of a teenager . . .

Colorado's Fraser Valley struggles with the usual problems of the scenic high country-too much development, too little water, culture clashes-but normally it's a peaceable community preoccupied with skiing the deep powder and making ends meet. Then the Colorado Bureau of Investigation's Annette Trieri moves in and dead bodies start turning up. A developer who thrives on controversy, a muck-raking writer, and a community leader all die under circumstances that, at first, look innocent. But inconsistencies pique Annette's suspicion, and she finds that they're all tied to water in general and the Front-Range Associated Water Board in particular, predators from across the mountains with designs on the valley's future. Ultimately, she's able to bring to justice the parties responsible for Developing Murder.
