You Don't Own Me
In MWA Grand Master Clark and Burke's formulaic fifth novel starring Laurie Moran (after 2017's Every Breath You Take), Laurie, who works for a reality TV show, Under Suspicion, investigating cases that have stymied the police, is put in a difficult position by Robert and Cynthia Bell. Five years earlier, the Bells' physician son, Martin, was gunned down in the driveway of his Manhattan townhouse. Though Martin's wife, Kendra, reputed to be a substance abuser, became the main person of interest, she was never charged. The Bells beseech Laurie to revisit her initial refusal to look into Martin's murder, in the hope of proving Kendra guilty. Despite some suspicious equivocation, Kendra consents to be interviewed, even as her kids' lives are under threat from an unidentified man. Laurie comes to believe that there are other leads worth pursuing, and, predictably, she ends up in harm's way. Character depth isn't the series' strong suit, and this entry is most likely to appeal to series fans who are invested in the lead character. Agent: Bob Barnett, Williams & Connolly. (Nov.)

A new Laurie Moran book from authors Clark and Burke is a must-buy for public libraries, and for good reason: their stories are first-rate. In this fast-moving sequel to Every Breath You Take (2017), the widowed Moran finally has it all. Her cold-case TV series is a hit, and she's about to marry her second great love. Then a case the show passed on earlier threatens to take over her personal and professional life as those involved won't let go. The suspense, intrigue, and powerful characters this duo's fans have come to expect are all here; readers will be absorbed by the twists the tale takes and the new subplots that unexpectedly emerge. There's a minor inconsistency in the galley of the work a character mentions that she considered someone a murder suspect and then rejected that idea, but the book later twice says that she never considered him but readers will overlook that given the excitement the tale generates. This will sell itself to the authors' devotees.--Henrietta Verma Copyright 2018 Booklist
