Furious Hours cover art

Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee
By: Casey Cep
Furious Hours is a gripping true crime story, told by author Casey Cep in 3 parts that reveal the shocking stories of the Reverend (Alabama serial killer Willie Maxwell), the Lawyer (Tom Radney, who not only helped Maxwell escape justice but also defended Maxwell’s killer, Robert Burns) and author Harper Lee. Though Lee spent years researching the Burns case for a true crime book that never came to be, Cep sheds light on the celebrated author’s life and literary aspirations following the success of To Kill a Mockingbird.

Where the Crawdads Sing cover art

Long Bright River
By: Liz Moore
Alternating its present-day mystery with the story of the sisters' childhood and adolescence, Long Bright River is at once heart-pounding and heart-wrenching: a gripping suspense novel that is also a moving story of sisters, addiction, and the formidable ties that persist between place, family, and fate.
