My Name Is Nathan Lu­cius By Mark Win­kler SOHO PRESS

Lu­cius works as an ad sales­man for a South African news­pa­per— he’s an odd guy but harm­less. Or maybe se­ri­ously dam­aged. Or per­haps a se­rial killer? Noir at its dark­est, cun­ningly ex­e­cuted.

High White Sun By J. Todd Scott G.P. PUTNAM’S SONS

Small-town cops, the FBI and the Drug En­force­ment Ad­min­is­tra­tion bat­tle white su­prem­a­cists on the Texas bor­der­land’s. Scott’s grim, vi­o­lent sort-of se­quel to his 2016 de­but, The Far Empty, is as ad­dic­tive as the best crime show. Lon­don Rules By Mick Her­ron SOHO CRIME If spies had an is­land of misɿt toys, the scathingly funny MI5 re­jects of Slough House are it. This ɿfth in a se­ries, from the writer the BBC called the “Le Carré of the fu­ture,” be­gins with ɿve armed men mas­sacring dozens in a Der­byshire town. (Out June 5.)

Mac­beth By Jo Nesbø HOG­A­RTH

The lat­est from Scan­di­navia’s king of crime fea­tures a para­mil­i­tary SWAT unit led by a dag­ger-lov­ing guy named Mac­beth (girl­friend: Lady). Mur­ders, para­noia, drug kings, biker gangs, cor­rupt po­lice ofɿcers, hal­lu­ci­na­tions and foggy moral choices add up to a Shake­speare homage that is grip­pingly of the mo­ment. The Per­fect Nanny By Leila Sli­mani PEN­GUIN RAN­DOM HOUSE With chill­ing pre­ci­sion, Sli­mani lays out ev­ery mother’s worst night­mare: the nanny who snaps and mas­sacres her kids. The French-moroc­can au­thor’s in­spi­ra­tion was the New <ork nanny trial, but this prizewin­ning in­ter­na­tional best-seller has less to do with mur­der and more to do with the hor­rors of lone­li­ness and moth­er­hood.

Tan­ger­ine By Chris­tine Man­gan ECCO PRESS

Right on trend, this lit­er­ate beach read has not one but two un­re­li­able nar­ra­tors: fe­male col­lege friends who com­mit an un­speciɿed tragedy in the 1950s, then meet up many years later in Tang­iers for some Paul Bowles– style dis­ori­en­ta­tion and at­mo­spher­ics. The Word Is Mur­der By An­thony Horowitz HARPERCOLLINS PUB­LISH­ERS An eru­dite meta-mys­tery from the cre­ator of the Bri­tish TV se­ries Foyle’s War, as well as the best-sell­ing Mag­pie Mur­ders. When a real de­tec­tive asks the writer to doc­u­ment his progress on a cu­ri­ous case (a woman is mur­dered the evening af­ter she plans her own funeral), Horowitz’s ter­ri­ble in­stincts add com­edy to an elab­o­rate puz­zle box of a crime. (Out on June 5.)
