Winter Preview 2013-2014: Part Eight

It's been such fun for us to pore over publishers' catalogs, Booklist and other sources of scoop about what will be coming to mystery book lovers this season. Even after seven days of our spotlighted books, there are still dozens left that we didn't get a chance to talk about in any detail.

Take a look at this listing and see what strikes your fancy. A few weeks from now, we're betting that we'll have found a few real gems in there. In the meantime, why not make it easier for us? If you already know about any of these—or others we've missed—and can give us the inside story, please let us know.
