What You Break- Reed Farrel Coleman lives on Long Island and writes about Long Island and the characters could have lived next door to me. There is nuance and there is anguish and there is just plain rage. It's one of the best police stories I've read in a long time.
Eleven Little Piggies- The woman can write. Strong women and a love of the land are front and center in this surprisingly touching mystery.
Kept Woman- Karin Slaughter really loves her characters, and so do I. This is a series which should be read from the start; if you've done that, you know just how wonderful their stories are.
Heartbreak Hotel- Jonathan is my favorite Kellerman. The psychiatrist and the detective and the crime are the focus, and the client is sui generis.
Humans, Bow Down - James Patterson and Emily Raymond with Jill Dembowski; illustrations by Alexander Ovchinnikov. YA at its best doesn't pander. This Robots Gone Wild dystopian fantasy was a great way to spend an afternoon.
