Memorial Day

Harry Shannon, Author Five Star (ME) $25.95 (265p) ISBN 978-1-59414-199-7
Five Star rolls out two novels set in the American West: Laurie Moore's kinky sequel to The Lady Godiva Murder (2002), The Wild Orchid Society, in which Fort Worth homicide cop Cuzanne Martin joins a decadent secret society in order to track down a sadistic killer known as the Executioner and Harry Shannon's noirish mystery debut, Memorial Day, in which down-on-his-luck psychologist Mick Callahan, now a radio talk-show host near his hometown of Dry Wells, Nev., investigates the murder of one of his call-in listeners. Advance praise from Bill Pronzini and Barbara Seranella should give it a boost. .
