The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity, by David Graeber and David Wengrow

The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller
“The moody and atmospheric setting of the shadowy paths and ponds of the Back Woods is described in lush detail that makes a sharp contrast to the colder, sharper elements of Elle’s story . . .

The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave
“Dave pulls off something that feels both new and familiar: a novel of domestic suspense that unnerves, then reassures. This is the antithesis of the way novels like Gone Girl or My Lovely Wife are constructed; in The Last Thing He Told Me, the surface is ugly, the situation disturbing, but almost everyone involved is basically good underneath it all. Dave has given readers what many people crave right now—a thoroughly engrossing yet comforting distraction.” ― BookPage

Be Careful What You Wish For (book 4 of the Clifton Chronicles) by Jeffrey Archer
“No family saga would be complete without a villain, and this book has a good one, a well-drawn and believable character whose motivations are understandable. This thoroughly engaging old-school, multigenerational saga harks back to the work of Malcolm Macdonald, Belva Plain, and Irwin Shaw.” ―Booklist

The Death of Jane Lawrence by Caitlin Starling
“A torturous book. Horrifying in small, cutting, personal ways, and in the more classic scare-in-a-dark-room way. But there’s an iron rod of panicked strength that runs through the middle of it.” ― NPR, Jason Sheehan, on The Luminous Dead

 

One Step Too Far (A Frankie Elkin novel) by Lisa Gardner

Tender Is the Bite (a Chet & Bernie mystery, 11) by Spencer Quinn

Quicksilver by Dean Koontz
“Positively twitching with suspense. Another sure-fire hit from a thriller master.” ―Booklist (starred review)

Unfinished Business (Ali Reynolds series, 16) by Judith A. Jance

By Blood We Live by Glen Duncan
“Duncan’s werewolf trilogy is vigorous, funny, sexy and necessary at a time when so much genre fiction is drowning in melancholy vampires and self-serious teen dystopias. The books share a great deal more DNA with James Bond and the John Landis classic An American Werewolf in London.” ― Kirkus Reviews

Deeds of Darkness (Tenth chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, surgeon)
“Mel Starr has done it again with another brilliant Sir Hugh de Singleton medieval mystery to keep readers guessing until the very end. . . . Mel always draws you into the experience.” ―Toni Mount, author of the Sebastian Foxley murder mystery series

Moon, Witch, Spider King by Marion James
“A rare sequel that is better than its predecessor. . . . a breathtaking book, one that functions as well as a standalone as it does a sequel. . . . Make no mistake, this series is absolutely a must-read.” ―NPR
