Force of Nature by Jane Harper -Harper's debut The Dry was #10 on our list of the Best Books of the Year. Now she follows up with a mystery set in the Australian wilderness, as Agent Aaron Falk and his new partner, Agent Carmen Cooper, are called in to investigate the disappearance of a woman who went missing in the woods during a required company bonding exercise. Amazon Senior Editor Seira Wilson writes, "Force of Nature is not as stark and electric a read as The Dry, but Harper has broadened the scope of her newest mystery to include not only subtle red herrings and twists, but complex family drama that kept me guessing all the way to its unexpected conclusion."

Girl Unknown by Karen Perry -Tana French provided a blurb for Girl Unknown: She writes that Girl Unknown “explores emotional danger with relentless, surgical accuracy.” The emotional danger that French references is caused by a mysterious girl who walks into David Connelly's university office and declares that she is his daughter. There are twists and turns in this one, and the bonds of a family are tested along with the bonds that hold us all together.
