by Joe Ide
East Long Beach, one of LA’s toughest neighborhoods: The LAPD is barely keeping up with the neighborhood’s high crime rate. Murders go unsolved, lost children unrecovered. But someone from the neighborhood has taken it upon himself to help solve the cases the police can’t or won't touch. They call him IQ. He’s a loner and a high school dropout, his unassuming nature disguising a relentless determination and a fierce intelligence. He charges his clients whatever they can afford, which might be a set of tires or a homemade casserole. To get by, he’s forced to take on clients that can pay. This time, it’s a rap mogul whose life is in danger. As IQ investigates, he encounters a vengeful ex-wife, a crew of notorious cutthroats, a monstrous attack dog, and a hit man who even other hit men say is a lunatic. The deeper he digs, the more far reaching and dangerous the case becomes.
by Jan Burke

She’s a tough investigative reporter in southern California and he’s a no-nonsense city detective who likes to hear the bad news first.

Duel With the Devil
by Paul Collins
When a beautiful Quaker woman’s mutilated body was discovered in famed lawyer Aaron Burr’s Manhattan well in 1799, public outcry rose against the prime murder suspect, her suitor Levi Weeks. Burr joined with his rival Alexander Hamilton to defend Weeks both in the courtroom and to the clamoring public. Not only does Collins provide an absorbing mystery, he also offers an entrancing account of the era’s yellow journalism while illuminating the legal acumen of two of our country’s greatest trial lawyers — and he solves the cold case of Elma Sands’s murder to boot.
The Cherokee Rose
by Tiya Miles
Inspired by the real-life Chief Vann House in northwest Georgia, this fictional story examines the phenomenon of Southern Cherokees who owned black slaves in the decades prior to the Trail of Tears. Three contemporary young women (who at first appear to have little in common) are all drawn to the Cherokee Rose Plantation, where a recently unearthed diary from 1815 illuminates how their fates are intertwined, and how the deeds of the past cast their long shadows into the present day.
