From the author of the beloved national bestseller Migrations, a pulse-pounding new novel set in the wild Scottish Highlands.
Hello Radar readers! I am not Liberty. Thought I should get that out of the way, but don’t worry she’s just on vacation eating books. I’m Jamie Canavés and while I don’t have puns, or naughty cats made out of liquid, I do have an angry goat trapped in a dog at war with a raccoon. Anyhoo, let’s do books!
Deals, Reals, and Squeals!

I write Book Riot’s Unusual Suspects newsletter and am Tailored Book Recommendations‘ Administrative Coordinator so I am always looking at upcoming books, and generally squealing about them, and getting my hands on galleys when I can.
These Toxic Things by Rachel Howzell Hall
I’m currently reading These Toxic Things by Rachel Howzell Hall (September 1st) and you may be like “wow, jumping the gun you haven’t even finished yet” but she’s an automatic read author for me and I’m loving it. It is many things I like already: a murder mystery; a great balance between the mystery and the lead’s personal life; an interesting job–think making virtual scrapbooks where you can ask to recall a memory from your life and have it projected for you with the narrated story from that day and the images. There are definitely some “past is gonna come get some people” vibes going on right now and I love it.
While you wait, Rachel Howzell Hall put out a great standalone PI mystery last year, And Now She’s Gone, about a missing woman case where things aren’t adding up right. She also has a procedural series worth marathoning that follows homicide detective Elouise “Lou” Norton out in LA, Land of Shadows.
