Chief of Police Bruno Courreges of St. Denis, France, is put in the awkward position of having to be a substitute navigator in a car rally race which has been added to the town's annual festival.

The Forgotten Girls
The Forgotten Girls by Sara Blaedel (Mystery/Suspense)
Well crafted but pretty twisted mystery set in Denmark. Perhaps something was lost due to translation but there were some gaps in information - especially with respect to the heroine's personal life. There must be some significant procedural differences in police procedures too. Despite these distractions, a compelling story. -- Added by NanM on 03/03/2017

Death of a Poison Pen
Death of a Poison Pen by M. C. Beaton (Mystery/Suspense)
As a lover of the "teacup mystery" genre, MC Beaton is my favorite author. This installment of her Hamish McBeth series fills the bill for clever and entertaining. I only wish the library had more of the Agatha Raisin titles on CD. -- Added by NanM on 03/03/2017

The Fleet Street Murders
The Fleet Street Murders by Charles Finch (Mystery/Suspense)
Set in 1886 England, this third mystery in the series starring amateur detective Charles Lenox centers around the murders of two prominent journalists late one December night in Fleet Street. Lenox tries to investigate without being stonewalled by the police at Scotland Yard who do not always welcome his efforts. At the same time, Lenox is recruited by his brother and other friends in Parliament to run for a seat in the House of Commons which has become available due to the death of the incumbent. Charles dashes back and forth between London and the fictional town of Stirrington, trying to balance his work to discover the solutions to the murders and learn how to campaign for office in a town he has never even visited. He also faces issues with his fiance and their best friends. There were almost too many subplots in this adventure, but it was very interesting to learn what political campaigning was like in England at that time--ready cash was certainly essential! -- Added by ERobinson on 03/02/2017

The Woman in Cabin 10
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware (Mystery/Suspense)
The book was a quick read, a real page turner. It's about a journalist who works for a travel magazine, she is one of only a few who are invited to attend the maiden voyage of a small, boutique style cruise ship. The main character, Lo, goes next door to a cabin to borrow something, a young woman answers the door. Later that night after drinking a bit too much, Lo is awoken from her sleep to the sound of a big slash. She goes outdoors on her veranda and sees blood on the glass next door where the young woman had been earlier in the evening. She reports it, but no one believes her. There wasn't anyone using that room, no personal effects were in there, no blood on the glass. Everyone becomes a suspect. Was Lo paranoid? Is she crazy? Was she imagining something that didn't happen? Find out by reading the book. I read that this book in being made into a movie. -- Added by mes925 on 03/01/2017
