The Accomplice, by Elizabeth Ironside

The Accomplice, by Elizabeth Ironside

Death in the Garden, Ms. Ironside’s first book to be published in the U.S., earned such spectacular and widespread reviews that readers may well have jumped on it. But they may have missed The Accomplice, which opens with a grim discovery in, well, a very proper English garden, but goes on to encompass a host of secrets, some of which trace back to a very different time and place. Like all of Ms. Ironside’s five novels, this is the literary equivalent of a sipping whiskey – something you want to savor slowly, as its riches unfold.

By Frequent Anguish, by S.F.X. Dean

By Frequent Anguish, by S.F.X. Dean

I admit it, I am a language slut: Throw a beautifully crafted sentence my way, and there isn’t much I won’t do in exchange. S.F.X. Dean (the pseudonym of Francis Smith, a longtime professor of humanities at Hampshire College) could make me do naked cartwheels down the length of Broadway, his writing is that lovely. In this, the first in a series about a widowed academic, the plot is intriguing, but as in all his books, the great pleasure is in the witty, elegant, and killingly intelligent prose.

The Truth About Unicorns, by Bonnie Jones Reynolds

The Truth about Unicorns, by Bonnie Jones Reynolds

Don’t let the woo-woo title fool you, this wonderful little tale packs a gloriously acerbic punch. The combination of the dry-as-a-good-martini narrative voice and the deliriously over-the-top plot (Steven King meets Robert Frost in 1920s New York, said one reader) makes for an unusual and unforgettable read.

Ghost Song, by Sarah Rayne

Ghost Song, by Sarah Rayne

We are extremely proud to be introducing this British author to U.S. readers. Rayne had a long and successful career as a horror-novelist (under a pseudonym), and though she has now turned to more sophisticated psychological suspense, she still has a tilt toward the dark side. Here it shows up courtesy of the Tarleton Music Hall, a long-abandoned theater with rumors – a ghost? A singing ghost? And something….something in the cellar? – that swirl around as thick as fog off the Thames.  Cheap thrills, perhaps, but the writing is so good that no one will feel guilty in the morning. (Also available as an ebook.)
