Between the Covers – March 13

NEW BOOKS – Our New Books on the 7-Day Shelf this week are: “Her One Mistake” by Heidi Perks; “The Secretary” by Renee Knight; “The Light Over London” by Julia Kelly and “The Hiding Place” by C.J. Tudor.

STAFF PICKS FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH ARE: “Mary Mary” by James Patterson; “The Stranger” by Harlan Coben; “The Girl who Stopped Swimming”; and this week’s feature is “The Keeper of Lost Causes” by Jussi Adler Owen.  (from book jacket)

 Carl Mørck used to be one of Copenhagen’s best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl—who didn’t draw his weapon—blames himself. So a promotion is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl’s got only a stack of Copenhagen’s coldest cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn’t dead…yet.
