Inspired by an actual case, Knoll's unputdownable novel begins with the 1978 break-in at a Florida State University sorority house. Chapter president Pamela Schumacher is the only one who saw what the press calls "the All-American serial killer," but her attempts to bring him to justice are thwarted by the men who think they know better. Knoll's bright young women are an unforgettable bunch, and this magnificent mystery boldly confronts the way Americans view unspeakable crime and who commits it.

The long-awaited follow-up to Hayes’s blockbuster I Am Pilgrim is a 21st century techno-thriller par excellence: it features a cool, calm, collected agent whose specialty is infiltrating the world’s no-go areas, super-savvy tradecraft as he tries to stop a new 9-11 from happening, a villain out of Tom Friedman’s worst nightmares, and a glimpse into the secret wars of the future as nations vie to outdo each other’s sophisticated weaponry. But the cherry on top is maybe the most unexpected twist of the year. This is a true page-turner that will leave you giddy!

The Mysterious Case of the Alperton Angels by Janice Hallett

Staff Pick

It's one of England's most sensational crimes: the messy end of a doomsday cult thwarted from sacrificing a baby believed to be the Antichrist. When two journalists dig into the story decades later, however, they learn there's much more to the mystery--and it could get them killed. The author of The Appeal tops herself with a brilliantly woven narrative of emails, text messages, interview transcripts, airport novel chapters, and more twists than a corkscrew. This is her wildest, most compelling mystery yet!
