In Scott Turow’s Suspect: A Thriller, three male police officers accuse Lucia Gomez, the police chief in the city of Highland Isle, of soliciting sex for promotions. She insists the accusations are designed to destroy her career and empower her enemies, and as her attorney, Rik Dudek, and his investigator, Clarice “Pinky” Granum, search for answers, they get drawn into the deepest recesses of the city’s criminal networks. In Hell and Back: A Longmire Mystery, the 18th installment of Craig Johnson’s Longmire series, its protagonist sheriff comes to the limits of his sanity. He finds himself covered in blood, lying in the middle of the street in the infamous town of Fort Pratt, Montana. The name printed on the leather sweatband of his cowboy hat says he is Walt Longmire – only he doesn’t remember him. And Brad Meltzer’s The Lightning Rod: A Zig & Nola Novel reunites mortician “Zig” Zigarowski and artist Nola Brown in a new murder mystery. A military officer is killed while trying to stop a robbery in his own home.
