Following on the heels of Just Another Day in Paradise will be the second Emma Rhodes high-society mystery, Impolite Society, by Cynthia Smith. Introduced in Noblesse Oblige, Emma is essentially a private investigator -- or as she calls herself, a "Private Resolver" -- to Europe's rich and elite. These books are perfect for fans of other high-society novels, such as those by Marne Davis Kellogg, Kerry Greenwood, Jane Stanton Hitchcock, and Nancy Martin. Also to come from Cynthia Smith, the rest of the Emma Rhodes books: Misleading Ladies, Silver and Guilt, and Royals and Rogues.
And this fall, celebrating its tenth anniversary, Pulitzer Prize nominee Ace Atkins's debut Nick Travers novel, Crossroad Blues, will see the light of day again. Though it hasn't been out of print for very long, this BFP reprint edition will feature new material including an original Travers story! Check back at the blog in the next week for more on Ace Atkins, and the new edition of Crossroad Blues.
