Sun, Sand, Suspense

While it doesn’t rival, in sheer numbers, The Rap Sheet’s 220-strong list of top summer crime-fiction choices, CrimeReads’ recent rundown of 72 crime, mystery, and thriller novels due out over the next three months is impressive for its savvy write-ups about each work. Included among the selections there are Matthew Pearl’s The Dante Chamber, Liz Nugent’s Lying in Wait, William Shaw’s Salt Lane, Linwood Barclay’s A Noise Downstairs, Dan Fesperman’s Safe Houses, Dervla McTiernan’s The Ruin, Lori Rader-Day’s Under a Dark Sky, Gina Wohlsdorf’s Blood Highway, Jon McGregor’s The Reservoir Tapes, David Gordon’s The Bouncer, and … Hey, wait, you didn’t expect us to list all of them, did you? There are 72. Check them out yourself.
