The usual suspects
Here are new books by three more terrific writers with long-running mystery series.
And Sometimes I Wonder About You: A Leonid McGill Mystery (Doubleday) by Walter Mosley is the prolific author's fifth book about complex New York private detective McGill (my second favorite after Mosley's great Easy Rawlins series), whose family life is as full of mysteries as his work.
The Beat Goes On: The Complete Rebus Stories (Little, Brown) by Ian Rankin collects 29 crisply clever short stories about Edinburgh Detective Inspector John Rebus, dourly charming veteran of 19 darkly entertaining novels.
The Bangkok Asset (Knopf) by John Burdett is his sixth fascinating book about Royal Thai Police Force investigator Sonchai Jitpleecheep, a devout Buddhist in a corrupt world, whose long search for his father leads to a deeply shocking discovery.
