January 10    Murder in Canaryville (James Coen) In this riveting account, Coen (Family Secrets: The Case That Crippled Chicago’s Mob) paints a vivid picture of underworld Chicago while detailing one man’s quest to close a cold case. In 1976, 17-year-old John Hughes was partying with friends in a park when he was shot dead by someone in a passing car. What should have been a simple case wound up going nowhere. Forty years later, Det. James Sherlock, on loan from the Chicago PD to the FBI’s cold case file, pulled a slender file on the murder and began to reconstruct the case. Though it was never officially solved, Sherlock’s dogged police work pretty much makes it clear who killed Hughes, why the incident led to a second murder years later, why there was a cover-up, and just how high it went. One of the suspects had a relative in the police department, judges were likely bribed, and Coen alleges that Mayor Richard Daley could have been involved. Along the way, Coen details the history of the mob in Chicago and the corruption within the city’s police department. With this fascinating survey, Coen burnishes his reputation as a top-notch crime writer.-–Publishers Weekly

February 14   The Indigo Girl (Natasha Boyd) Set on South Carolina’s plantations beginning in 1739, this excellent historical novel by Boyd (Eversea) is based on the true story of Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722-1793). Sixteen year old Eliza Lucas is charged with running her father’s three heavily-mortgaged plantations while he pursues a military career in the Caribbean. He has trained Eliza well in business, agriculture, and plantation management, and she is bright, considerate and ambitious.  Eliza sees the production of indigo dyes as the family’s financial salvation, but indigo is risky to grow, and dye-making is a valuable, but well-kept secret so she must approach her new assignment with caution.  Kindhearted Eliza is independent and forward-thinking.  She defies the Negro Act of 1740 and teaches her slaves to read, seeks their advice, and banishes the lash.  As a marriageable young woman she rejects all suitors and expects to be a spinster, but as the plantation booms and her public stature grows, so does her affection for a married gentleman friend. Add threats of war with Spain and the strict social and cultural codes for Southern women, and Boyd has crafted a captivating novel of Southern colonial history.—Publishers Weekly
