The Best New Crime Books of June 2020

*Flips page on calendar* Hello, June. Hello, new mysteries and thrillers. I’ve been waiting for you! And since sharing is caring, I of course am going to tell you lovely mystery readers about a handful of crime books–fiction and nonfiction–releasing this month that should keep you turning the pages long into the night. Or in the day, if you’re a day reader–any time is a great time for a mystery book.


Here’s to a great month of crime reads and solving those mysteries!
