10 new books coming out this week ‹ CrimeReads

Another week, another batch of books for your TBR stack. Happy reading, friends.


Alma Katsu, fervor
(GP Putnam)

“Katsu is unparalleled in atmospheric, detail-rich historical horror, but this volume is more disturbing than anything she’s written so far, as her demons attack readers uncomfortably close to home. A must-read for everyone, not just fans of the genre.
Library Journal, starred magazine

David Gordon, The wild life
(Mystery Press)

“In the caper tradition popularized by Donald E. Westlake and Lawrence Block, Gordon uses humor to great effect… Delightful misadventures include a wild chase on a yellow and orange Ducati motorcycle and a luxury car theft. Gordon found its groove in this one.
Weekly editors

Don Winslow, city ​​on fire
(William Morrow)

“A dazzling novel filled with anger and bite. . . . Lots of pain for the characters, lots of thrills for the reader.
Kirkus review, star rating

Cassidy Lucas, The last party

The last party is a perfect thriller with a heart of gold. Cassidy Lucas perfectly captures the overwhelming anxiety of the pandemic and beautifully dramatizes its ability to both bring people together and tragically tear them apart. I couldn’t put it down.”

Kirkus Reviews

Heather Chavez, The blood will tell
(William Morrow)

Weekly editors

Jeneva Rose, One of us is dead
(Black stone)

“Wicked girls, sex and scandal, secrets and lies, all wrapped up in Buckhead privilege and opulence – what’s not to love?”
Lisa Unger

Victoria Thompson, Murder on Madison Square

“Thompson does a good job of showing how the automobile began to change people’s lives in the service of a pleasantly surprising plot. It’s one of the best entries in the series.

Phoebe Morgan, wild girls
(William Morrow)

“Masterfully constructed twists and tangible paranoia push the bush setting into the background as betrayals are uncovered, and the result is shrouded in competing obsessions and next-level manipulations.”
