10 Crime Fiction Books Coming This May

CrimeFictionMay_NovelSuspectsSpring has finally sprung (in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway!), and with it comes a whole slew of new suspense books! From California to Lebanon, from the swingin’ ’60s to the world of today, these books take you on far-flung adventures full of danger, drama, and the occasional laugh—and they will all be released in May 2021.
The protagonists in these suspense novels must run a gauntlet of hazardous intrigues, from corporate secrets to mysterious disappearances to governmental conspiracies. Faced with lies and betrayal even from those closest to them, they must rely on their own wits, skills, and devotion to justice to save the day. In other words, if you’re looking for some exciting new mystery books to enjoy in this lovely month of May, keep reading.
