A church party turns deadly for antiques dealer Lina Townend when she thwarts a thief in this British mystery. Helping out at a church fête is about the last thing Lina Townend wants to do on a beautiful summer’s afternoon. But since the vicar is an old friend, Lina finds herself agreeing to sell a bunch of bric-a-brac. Nothing too exciting happens at the harmless event—until someone tries to steal a tatty old snuff box. While the piece doesn’t look like much, it seems the box is valuable enough for the would-be thief to attack Lina’s business partner Griff, frame Lina for a crime—and kill an old friend. Lina never imagined a little old snuff box could cause so much trouble. Now, she has to clear her name by catching the real culprit, before anyone else gets snuffed out.

Libby Clark takes a feminist approach to science—and solving a murder—in this “gripping puzzler of a mystery” set in WWII Tennessee (Library Journal). Oak Ridge, Tennessee is known as the Secret City. It rose seemingly overnight in 1942, built by the US government. No one was quite sure what its purpose was, but there was certainly something going on . . . Libby Clark, a gutsy Bryn Mawr graduate, is determined to find her place as a scientist in a world where women are thought better suited to housework and marriage. As the only female scientist in the top-secret facility, Libby is excited to begin what she believes is important government research. But she soon discovers that something more sinister is afoot. One frosty night she finds the dead body of her roommate’s sister sprawled behind the bleachers. The police don’t seem to think finding the killer is important, so it’s up to Libby to make sense of the situation. Aided by a band of like-minded scientists, Libby follows every possible lead . . . even as they take her to a shocking conclusion. Book 1 in the Libby Clark Second World War Mystery Series. “Fanning re-creates the atmosphere at Oak Ridge effectively, and her exploration of the ethical issues surrounding security are timely today. A promising new series.” —Booklist “Readers will be engrossed by . . . [the] authentic details.” —Library Journal, starred review “An intriguing change from Fanning—bolstered by thought-provoking details of the obstacles women faced in the wartime workforce.” —Kirkus Reviews

Raised in the steamy bayous of New Orleans in the early 1900s, LeRoi "King" Tremain, caught up in his family's ongoing feud with the rival DuMont family, learns to fight. But when the teenage King mistakenly kills two white deputies during a botched raid on the DuMonts, the Tremains' fear of reprisal forces King to flee Louisiana. King thus embarks on an adventure that first takes him to France, where he fights in World War I as a member of the segregated 369th Battalion—in the bigoted army he finds himself locked in combat with American soldiers as well as with Germans. When he returns to America, he battles the Mob in Jazz Age Harlem, the KKK in Louisiana, and crooked politicians trying to destroy a black township in Oklahoma. King Tremain is driven by two principal forces: He wants to be treated with respect, and he wants to create a family dynasty much like the one he left behind in Louisiana. This is a stunning debut by novelist Guy Johnson that provides a true depiction of the lives of African-Americans in the early decades of the twentieth century.

In Amanda Skenandore’s provocative and profoundly moving debut, set in the tragic intersection between white and Native American culture, a young girl learns about friendship, betrayal, and the sacrifices made in the name of belonging. On a quiet Philadelphia morning in 1906, a newspaper headline catapults Alma Mitchell back to her past. A federal agent is dead, and the murder suspect is Alma’s childhood friend, Harry Muskrat. Harry—or Asku, as Alma knew him—was the most promising student at the “savage-taming” boarding school run by her father, where Alma was the only white pupil. Created in the wake of the Indian Wars, the Stover School was intended to assimilate the children of neighboring reservations. Instead, it robbed them of everything they’d known—language, customs, even their names—and left a heartbreaking legacy in its wake. The bright, courageous boy Alma knew could never have murdered anyone. But she barely recognizes the man Asku has become, cold and embittered at being an outcast in the white world and a ghost in his own. Her lawyer husband, Stewart, reluctantly agrees to help defend Asku for Alma’s sake. To do so, Alma must revisit the painful secrets she has kept hidden from everyone—especially Stewart. Told in compelling narratives that alternate between Alma’s childhood and her present life, Between Earth and Sky is a haunting and complex story of love and loss, as a quest for justice becomes a journey toward understanding and, ultimately, atonement.
