“Say You’re Sorry” is by author Karen Rose. This is the first book in a new series of thrillers. A serial killer is targeting women leaving one or two letters carved on their torsos. Together they spell “Sydney.” But one victim, Daisy Dawson, gets away and manages to grab crucial evidence: a necklace from the killer’s neck. It is a link to a cold case Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has been tracking for seventeen years.
Stephanie Evanovich’s latest novel is “Under the Table.” In this twist on “My Fair Lady” this funny romance finds a canny young woman making over her awkward millionaire client with surprising results.

“The Tale Teller” is the latest Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito novel by Anne Hillerman. Retired tribal police officer Joe Leaphorn is hired to find a missing biil, a traditional weaving that has been donated to the Navajo Nation. Meanwhile Officer Bernie Manuelito finds a body near a running trial. Sergeant Jim Chee is working a burglary case that grows into something more sinister. These three investigations merge to create an unexpected opportunity.
Heather Gudenkauf has written “Before She Was Found.” This “gripping thriller is about three young girlfriends, a dark obsession and a chilling crime that shakes up a quiet Iowa town.”
