A Spool of Blue Thread
Gathered on the porch with her family, Abby Whitshank relates how she fell in love with Red on a glorious "yellow-and-green afternoon" in July 1959. Over the years, Abby and Red and their four grown children have had their share of happy moments, but also jealousies, disappointments, and secrets. From Red’s father and mother newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to Abby and Red’s grandchildren carrying the family legacy into the 21st century, Tyler’s latest (after The Beginner’s Goodbye, 2012) chronicles four generations of Whitshanks and tackles the tensions that mount as the siblings care for their aging parents.
Hush Hush: A Tess Monaghan Novel
A lot of changed for Baltimore PI Tess Monaghan (last seen in The Girl in the Green Raincoat , 2011). Now she’s a mother to bossy three-year-old, Carla Scout, and also has a new partner, retired homicide detective Sandy Sanchez (introduced in After I’m Gone, 2014). Tess reluctantly agrees to assess security for wealthy client Melisandre Harris Dawes, who’s returning to Baltimore for a reunion with her teenage daughters after being acquitted ten years ago (by reason of insanity) of intentionally killing her infant daughter in a hot car. Melisandre has also hired a documentary filmmaker to record everything.
Mightier Than the Sword
Archer pens another saga of the Clifton and Barrington families in his sweeping Clifton Chronicles series (after Be Careful What You Wish For, 2014). After an IRA bomb explodes during the liner MVBuckingham’s maiden voyage across the Atlantic, Harry Clifton’s wife, Emma, chairman of Barrington Shipping, is facing repercussions--and former sister-in-law Lady Virginia Fenwick will stop at nothing to cause her downfall. Meanwhile, Harry campaigns for the release of fellow author Anatoly Babakov, imprisoned in Siberia after writing an expose about Stalin, and Emma’s brother and son face their own challenges and rivals.
