Déjà vu all over again

barclay.gifIn Linwood Barclay’s new suspense thriller, No Time for Goodbye, a Milford woman whose parents and brother vanished during the night from their family home twenty-five years ago decides to take her story to a popular crime-stopper program on national television. She then fears that her husband and child may be taken from her in the same fashion when it becomes clear that there is much more to their disappearance than she ever imagined.

There are a few other new additions to our collection of mysteries set in Connecticut.

Sisters in Crime President Roberta Isleib has a paperback series I discovered at the recent Crime Bake mystery conference -- the “Advice Column” mysteries featuring Dr. Rebecca Butterman, a Guilford clinical psychologist and advice columnist.

Besides Justin Scott’s new Ben Abbott mystery, Mausoleum, which I mentioned in a previous posting, there are two other new titles featuring popular Connecticut sleuths.

The third Annie Seymour mystery, Dead of the Day, from Karen Olson is here! You can get a head start by reading the first chapter on-line at the author’s website. Olson’s fans might want to join the Usual Suspects Mystery Reading Group on May 18th when she will be the special guest author.

Cora Felton, a.k.a. The Puzzle Lady, returns in The Sudoku Puzzle Murders, which is due in April. Will Shortz, New York Times crossword puzzle editor, has constructed original sudoku puzzles that help solve the mystery. If you haven’t met Cora yet you might want to check out one of her crossword puzzle mysteries and find out why Kirkus magazine dubbed her "Miss Marple on steroids!"

You can meet Will Shortz in person on Saturday, February 2nd at the Library's Ninth Annual Crossword Puzzle Contest. Online registration begins in January on our website.
