New Zealand thriller

five-minutes-aloneFive Minutes Alone (Atria, 10/2014) is Edgar-nominated Paul Cleave’s fourth thriller starring PI and ex-cop Theodore Tate of Christchurch, New Zealand. “When you find the man who did this, give me five minutes alone with him.” That’s the phrase detectives often hear from the loved ones of victims. When the police find three dead or missing rapists within a two day period, Tate suspects that someone is helping victims and their families get revenge.  Cleave’s Christchurch Noir series has been enthusiastically greeted by American reviewers as “breathlessly suspenseful”.  And the unusual New Zealand setting is fresh and interesting.

Joe Burgess, Portland’s meanest cop

FloraAnd Grant You Peace (Five Star, 10/2014) is the fourth installment in the popular Joe Burgess police detective series set in Portland, Maine. Burgess is a Vietnam veteran and an experienced homicide detective, self-described as a “bad tempered hardass who chewed new recruits to shreds the way some guys chewed gum.” He is reputed to be Portland’s “meanest cop.” This newest case begins with arson: someone has torched the Somali community’s mosque, trapping a young woman and her baby inside. Kate Flora also writes the Theo Kozak series.

Another Queen Bee novel

Queen BeeIn 2003 Haywood Smith wrote The Red Hat Club (St. Martin’s, 2003) about a lively group of middle-aged women who meet for lunch wearing their gaudiest clothes and red hats as symbols of defiance of aging and social stagnation. Two sequels followed and real-life Red Hat Clubs sprang up everywhere. Her next book, Queen Bee of Mimosa Branch (St. Martin’s, 2003), about conservative Southern gentlewoman, Linwood Breedlove Scott, was also very popular. Now, 11 years later, she has resurrected the indomitable “Lin” for a sequel, Queen Bee Goes Home Again (St. Martin’s, 9/ 2014). “Lin” has lost her little house in the real estate bubble, and has to move back in with her family. How many libraries will still have the first Queen Bee book? My local library network has ten copies, all available.
