New Mysteries – June 2018

The Spook In The Stacks by Eva Gates

Release Date: June 12, 2018    

ISBN: 9781683315803

First Lines: My colleagues burst through the library doors, weighted down by gravestones, skeletons, and a giant black spider.

I’ve never been a big lover of Halloween, mainly because, frankly, I don’t consider being scared at all fun.

Clearly, in that I am the minority.


Rockets Dead Glare (Novella) by Lynn Cahoon

Release Date: June 5, 2018

Release Date: June 8, 2018    

ISBN: 9780738752419

First Lines: “Oh, Pooh.” I pointed at the label on the big gray tub of Christmas lights at my feet. “This box goes to Jewel Bay Antiques. ‘Spose they got ours instead?”

“Does it matter?” Adam, my sweetie, asked.


Thrill Girl by Jack Curran

ISBN: 9781516104635

Staged 4 Murder by J.C. Eaton

Release Date: June 26, 2018   

ISBN: 9781496708595

First Lines: The wet sponge that hung over the Valley of the Sun, sapping my energy and making my life a misery for the past three months, wrung itself dry and left by the end of September. Unfortunately, it was immediately replaced by something far more aggrivating than monsoon weather—my mother’s book club announcement.



A Lady’s Guide To Etiquette And Murder  by  Dianne Freeman

Release Date: June 26, 2018   

ISBN: 9781496716873

First Lines: Black—no. Black—no. Black crepe? Oh, heavens no! I bundled the offending gowns and dropped them on a bench for my maid to dispose of, then glanced around my dressing room. One word described it—mourning.
