While snakes slither in the shadows, Hiaasen gleefully skewers bumbling politicians, inane socialites, dim criminals, and what passes for Palm Beach culture in a tale as bright and hot as the Florida sun. While the super-rich focus on themselves, they ignore the snakes, who have huge appetites of their own. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Fern Douglas is a very anxious woman. This is not her fault; growing up her father Ted often performed “fear experiments,” on her for his work, and these tests have practically traumatized her for life. But when Astrid Sullivan, a woman famous for disappearing when she was 14 years old, is on the news and apparently been kidnapped again, Fern thinks she knows her. She just can’t remember. The two women must be connected, and now Fern uses her time back in her hometown while helping Ted move out of their childhood home to remember what really happened to Astrid--and to her. Disturbing, frustrating and shocking, all in the best ways. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

The Silence of the White City by Eva Garcia Saenz is a fantastic mystery set in Basque country. A serial killer is on the loose twenty years after they were thought to be put behind bars. Filled with a rich sense of place and interwoven with Basque culture, this is a highly engaging mystery that will leave you guessing to the end. Highly recommended. ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow

A thrilling read with twists and turns on every page! With multiple mysteries to solve, you will definitely be reading late into the night. Plus, the novel has excellent disability representation; one character has a prosthetic leg and another has a fake eye. I highly recommend it! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

A Southern drawl suspense story revolving around a small Texas town, a girl missing for the past decade and Odette, a young female cop deeply connected to the girl’s disappearance, who’s determined to uncover the truth once and for all, especially when a new lost girl turns up in town. Character driven and sharp with the author’s ability to unveil the imperfections--physically and mentally--behind each narrator. The twist halfway through will completely shock and change what you thought this story was about. Highly recommended! ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

Ruth Ware just gets better and better with each book! A devastating avalanche crashes down in the french mountains as a British tech company is renting out a chalet for an employee retreat. On top of that natural disaster and losing all connection to the outside world, someone in the group is murdering off its members one by one. It’s like Clue but not as funny. A whodunnit-turned-thriller with ski-slope levels of twists and turns, this will definitely be one of your mystery favorites for 2020. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
