A Death in Denmark, by Amulya Malladi

Staff Pick

Imagine Nick Charles (of Dashiell Hammett's The Thin Man fame) sleuthing through contemporary Sweden and you get Gabriel Praest, the private detective driving A Death in Denmark.  Just like Nick Charles, Gabriel has  a taste for good music, fine liquor, and even finer clothes. And also just like Charles, he is dogged and determined. Toss in social commentary about Danish immigration laws and some good-old fashioned Nazi hunting and the story flies in this fast-moving Nordic noir.

Satellite Boy, by Andrew Amekinckx

Staff Pick

Amekinckx is one of those writers with a special talent for finding history's quirky connections. His page turner takes us back to the early 1960s when satellite technology made possible Our World, the first live, multi-national TV broadcast. As Amekinckx follows the American engineer Harold Rosen's efforts to launch Cold War-inspired geostationary communications--as well as the early Our World segment tracking Canadian bank robber George Lemay's mad last dash for freedom across Montreal--he guarantees you will never watch live TV in the same way again.

Gangbuster, by Alan Prendergast

Staff Pick

Prendergast's compelling 1920s cat-and-mouse legal chase is a ground-breaking account of how Denver's DA took on the Klan and the city's corrupt government.  With skillful storytelling reminiscent of American Midnight, the book investigates the racism, xenophobia, and greed specifically governing the Mile High City a century ago--but that continue to plague regions of this country today.
