After a nearly fatal accident, Virgil is no longer himself. He still lives on the shore of Lake Superior and operates the movie theater but there is a disconnect from the man that he was. Enger invites us to this downtrodden town and brings its citizens to life with soaring and evocative language that reminds us we have the capacity to surprise even ourselves.

Connolly is a very rare thing, a literary genre writer. His writing and characters are as compelling as the mystery of what happened to the woman found buried in the woods. The Woman in the Woods is a stellar supernatural story that follows a network of people designed to help women fleeing danger. Who is the ancient being that is stalking them and the book of fairy tales she left behind?

Ware continues to hone her craft as she introduces us to Hal, a tarot card reader on the Brighton pier. Hal receives a letter that leads her into what she believes will be a harmless fraud against the upper class but quickly builds into a mystery that goes to the core of who Hal really is and why her mother seems to have lied about nearly everything. Reminiscent of the country-house mysteries of the golden age.
