Starter Set

Having somehow survived 2017, with all of its governmental incompetence, infantile Twitter rants, discomfiting threats of nuclear warfare, and erosion of both social norms and international alliances, we’re now charging full steam ahead into 2018. There are no assurances that the world will be any less rocky and frightening this year than it was last, but at least we will have lots of excellent reading material to keep us entertained—no matter what happens.

Just the next three months, for instance, will bring us what’s billed as “the final completed novel” by Mickey Spillane (The Last Stand); a new Hebrides-set thriller from Peter May (I’ll Keep You Safe); Rory Clements’ latest World War II-era spy yarn (Nucleus); Jane Harper’s Force of Nature, her sequel to the award-winning The Dry; what may be the opening installment in a new Walter Mosley detective series (Down the River Unto the Sea); the long-awaited fourth novel from Night Dogs author Kent Anderson (Green Sun); a work of psychological suspense from Laura Lippman (Sunburn); a 1920s-set novel of the Windy City underworld by playwright David Mamet (Chicago); the return of early 20th-century Viennese psychiatrist Max Liebermann (in Frank Tallis’ Mephisto Waltz); a high-tension yarn pairing two of Loren D. Estleman’s series protagonists, private eye Amos Walker and hit man Peter Macklin (Black and White Ball); the return of 1940s San Francisco gumshoe Miranda Corbie (in Kelli Stanley’s City of Sharks); the 50th anniversary edition of Colonel Sun, “the first James Bond novel published after the death of Ian Fleming in 1964”; Stella Duffy’s completion of an Inspector Roderick Alleyn mystery (Money in the Morgue), begun in the 1940s by Ngaio Marsh; and J. Todd Scott’s High White Sun, the sequel to 2016’s The Far Empty. On top of those, we can also look forward to fresh fiction from, among many others, Ragnar Jónasson, Jacqueline Winspear, Robert Goddard, Alison Gaylin, Joe R. Lansdale, Camilla Lackberg, Brad Parks, Charles Todd, Ausma Zehanat Khan, Bill Pronzini, Eva Dolan, Gerald Seymour, Mari Hannah, Robert Harris, and Ann Cleeves.

I know, I know: This abundance of literary riches is almost too much to take in at a single sitting. Below you will find almost 400 crime, mystery, and thriller works due out on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean between now and the end of March. (Believe it or not, this is not a complete rundown of what will soon become available, but instead a critic’s choice selection.) The list is based on recommendations from genre authorities such as Sarah Weinman and Shots’ Ayo Onatade, and Web sites ranging from Crime Fiction Lover and Bookbub Blog to Euro Crime and The Bloodstained Bookshelf. I think there’s something here for everyone, whether you favor hard-boiled crime tales, less brash whodunits, or double-cross-filled espionage thrillers. There are even a few crime fiction/science fiction crossovers, and some non-fiction releases—identified here with asterisks (*)—that should appeal to The Rap Sheet’s astute and curious readership.
