Did you ever wish Jane Eyre were a little bit more… gutsy? Then get a copy of Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye, where Jane is indeed very gutsy (and then some). It is a dark, fun, smart, and fierce take on Bronte’s classic, with gloriously imagined characters, a bit of history, a fairly high body count, sharp clever style, and enough plot twists to satisfy any historical mystery reader. This homage is a delight whether you love Jane Eyre, hate it, or have never even read it.

In this sophisticated psychological thriller, we first meet FBI agent Jack Crawford and his protégé Will Graham, two expert FBI criminal profilers notorious for putting away one of America's most feared killers, Hannibal Lector. Graham caught Lector by using his eerie instinct for getting inside a killer's mind, but Lector almost killed him in the process, driving Graham to pursue a quiet life in Florida. In the shadow of these events, a new series of murders has the FBI concerned. A serial killer dubbed "The Tooth Fairy" is murdering families across the U.S., seemingly at random. Crawford brings Graham out of retirement to help solve the crimes and what follows is a chilling and fast-paced dance between psychopaths, and a race to save lives.

Already published to great acclaim in Sweden, Quicksand is Malin Persson Giolito’s first book published in the U.S. After a school shooting in a wealthy Stockholm suburb, only one person in the classroom is unharmed. This is Maja, the novel’s central character and narrator, and the sole surviving suspect. We follow her through her trial and her incarceration as well as the events leading up to the tragedy. Most beguiling is the way the story makes you fall in love with Maja, at the same time uncertain of her complicity in the murder. From the courtroom scenes to the portrayal of wealthy disaffected Swedish youth, everything in Quicksand feels spot on.
