The Best New Crime Fiction of March 2020

James Patterson's Best True Crime Books Featured ImageLucky for us crime readers, we have another great month of publishing putting out mysteries and thrillers to keep us up past our bedtime! We have a popular thriller writer’s new book, a delightful novelization of a comic that’s perfect for Nancy Drew fans, a cozy mystery with a ghost, and an amateur sleuth who hides her detecting work from her husband! Time to go sit outside in the arriving spring weather with a nice stack of mystery reads.
