Canary by Duane Swierczynski
One of my Top 10 of 2015 is now in paperback. A college student is forced to become an informant for an ambitious narcotics cop. To escape she sets up a plan to play the police and dealers off of one another. A tight, human thriller that gives an interesting look at the war on drugs. You can find copies of Canary on our shelves or via bookpeople.com.
What Remains Of Me by Alison Gaylin
When the a celebrity murderess’ movie star father-in-law is found shot five years after her release, past and present smack into one another. A rich psychological thriller that looks into adolescence, privilege, and the media. Great for Megan Abbott fans. What Remains of Me comes out Tuesday, February 23rd. Pre-order now!
