Summer DebutsRead LJ's reviews of the above titles and more - here. I'm itching to get hold of Siren of the Waters, published by Soho Press.
June is busting out with an excellent selection of intriguing first novels and new series. In Nicola Upson's audacious debut, An Expert in Murder, her protagonist is none other than classic crime author Josephine Tey. The Streets of Babylon, Carina Burman's first entry in a new trilogy about a Swedish crime-solving writer, is remarkable in its early Victorian setting and strong female characters.
A genealogist plays an investigative role in Dan Waddell's series launch, The Blood Detective. Evan Marshall introduces Anna Winthrop, a New York City sanitation supervisor, in Death Is Disposable, and Slovakian Police Commander Jana Matinova makes her crime fiction debut in Michael Genelin's Siren of the Waters, sure to be one of the best police procedurals of the year.
