Purgatory Chasm by Steve Ulfelder
Review
Read this after author Steve Ulfelder came to the library for a program. His first novel, this book introduces Conway Sax, a former alcoholic auto mechanic who tries to help a friend in need and ends up in the middle of the friend's murder. The police are calling it a suicide, but Conway doesn't buy it and sets out to solve the mystery in his hard-boiled way. References to local landmarks make for a fun read.  WPL catalog

Prized by Caragh M. O'Brien
Review
This is a sequel book to Birthmarked. I have really enjoyed this series so far. Usually sequel books can be flat, but this one may even have been better than the first one. If you like young adult dystopian novels, I recommend this series. (Although, I have yet to read Promised.)  WPL catalog
