Dead of Winter
In this newest August Snow novel, Stephen Mack Jones takes us into the shadowy world of real estate developers. With each chapter, he peels back another layer of corruption in Snow's Detroit neighborhood of Mexicotown, where someone is inexplicably trying to shut down a long-standing tortilla manufacturing plant, a crucial employer of area African Americans and Latinos. Snow, his loved ones, and ragged partners immediately come alive on the page, which makes it all the more a page-turner for readers concerned for their safety as they drill down to the dangerous source of the problem. This is nail-biter crime fiction. Recommended by Kelly
