Coffin Road by Peter May book cover

Coffin Road by Peter May

Nancy recommends this mystery set on the remote Isle of Harris in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. A man washes up on the beach with no memory of who he is or how he got there. As the story unfolds, there is a dead body, bees, a rebellious teenager, and DSI George Gunn (who we first met in May's Lewis Trilogy, though this is a stand alone). Coffin Road is character driven, but the plot has some twists and turns, and May's writing style evokes the wild beauty of the west coast and islands of Scotland, making the landscape another character in the tale.

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson book cover

The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson

Heather recommends this dark, tense story of political intrigue and resistance in a vividly built world. Baru Cormorant's small island society has been overtaken by the Empire of Masks. Young Baru, educated in the new colonial schools, vows to avenge the loss of so much she held dear by bringing down the Empire from the inside. But she cannot anticipate how much she may be forced to sacrifice as she climbs the ranks of the Empire's bureaucracy in pursuit of her goal.
