New Releases for January

A new year and lots of new books are hitting the shelves. As usual, I’m grateful for the opportunity for the advance review copes from Netgalley and the publishers. I’ve got a bit of everything here so let me tell you what’s on my radar:

Split by Alida Bremer. It’s 1936. The seaside-resort village of Split on the Adriatic coast bustles with tourists and émigrés. But as war in Europe looms, Split is also a nest of spies, fascists, and smugglers. Then one summer morning it becomes the scene of a murder investigation when a corpse is found entangled in fishing nets in the port. On sale 1/1/2024.

The Ascent by Adam Plantinga. A thriller about a down on his luck ex-cop who is thrown in prison and is about to fight the most dangerous convicts in Missouri when the prison security system fails. On sale 1/2/2024.

The Silence in her Eyes by Armando Lucas Correa. A psychological thriller about a young woman with a rare neurological condition who is convinced her neighbor is going to be murdered. On sale 1/16/2024.

The Bullet Swallower by Elizabeth Gonzalez James. The story follows a Mexican bandido as he sets off for Texas to save his family, only to encounter a mysterious figure who has come, finally, to collect a cosmic debt generations in the making. On sale 1/23/2024.

The Clinic by Cate Quinn. A thriller set in a remote rehab clinic on the Pacific Northwest coast, in which the death of a woman inside prompts her sister to enter the clinic as a patient in order to find the truth. On sale 1/23/2024.

Held by Anne Michaels. On a battlefield near the River Escaut, John lies in the aftermath of a blast, unable to move or feel his legs. Struggling to focus his thoughts, he is lost to memory as the snow falls. A narrative that spans four generations. On sale 1/30/2024.

Which one to start with first? That’s going to be a tough decision. Let me know which one you’d choose.
