TUESDAY’S GONE 

By Nicci French (Pamela Dorman Books, $27.95)

Frieda Klein, a psychotherapist who’s previously worked with police, is called in to interview Michelle Doyce, a rambling, incoherent woman who was found serving tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. (If that’s not enough to pique your curiosity and have you rushing to the bookstore, I don’t know what will.) Eventually, Frieda discovers the dead man was a con who was well known to her and may have been killed to embroil her in the investigation.

BECAUSE I SAID SO!

By Ken Jennings (Scribner, $19.99)

Subtitled “The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down to its Kids,” Jennings relates how the clichéd warnings we give kids are mostly false: “Don’t swim for an hour after lunch—you’ll get cramps!” (False) “Don’t cross your eyes, they’ll stay like that.” (False) “No double-dipping, you’ll spread germs.” (True!) Remember the Seinfeld episode when George gets caught doing just that? You’ll learn a lot and laugh a lot in this delightful book.
