THE SOUND OF BROKEN GLASS By Deborah Crombie, William Morrow, $25.99

The sadomasochistic murder of a prominent barrister in a seedy hotel pairs Detective Inspector Gemma James and Detective Sergeant Melody Talbot for the first time. The case is soon complicated by a second identical murder. The only connection between the two is a young guitarist who knew both victims, but appears completely innocent. The two detectives, with the help of Gemma’s husband and usual partner, Duncan, find themselves in unexpected quarters they find unsettling. Flashbacks and brief descriptions of the Crystal Park area add interest and
authenticity to the story.

THE SON By Jo Nesbø, Knopf $25.95

Sonny Lofthus has spent 12 years in prison for confessing to crimes he didn’t commit. Sonny is addicted to heroin, an unlimited supply of which mysteriously finds its way to his prison cell. His drug addiction developed after his father committed suicide rather than being exposed as a corrupt cop. But when Sonny learns a long-kept secret, he escapes prison and begins retaliating against those who deceived him. The only obstacles in his way are aging Detective Simon Kefas and his new young partner who try to stay a step ahead of him.
