We love the Fall season, and with the change of weather and colours of leaves comes our new books, ready for you to explore at your leisure. Some of our staff can’t wait for these books to come out, and are excited to share them with you. 

Here's who will be reading what and why.

  1. Michelle Melski (Senior Publicist) will be reading The Moscow Code

    “I'm crossing my fingers that there will be something similar to the swimming pool incident from Escape to Havana in this one! The Foreign Affairs Series is a humorous and witty mystery series that is perfect escapism reading for when you want to get away from it all.”

    The Moscow Code: Having barely survived his last posting in Havana, Charlie Hillier now finds himself in Moscow. When a writer arrested on dubious drug charges turns up dead, the official explanation is suicide. But Charlie has his doubts, and his investigation into the case brings him too close to powers more dangerous than he could have imagined.

  2. Sheila Douglas (Contracts Manager) will be reading Subverting Justice

    In the latest #InsideDundurn, Sheila told us that she loves mysteries, so it’s no surprise that she chose Don Easton’s upcoming thriller!

    In the 11th Jack Taggart mystery, Subverting Justice, Jack never though he would miss Damien Zabat, until his old nemesis was unseated by a new head of the Satans Wrath motorcycle gang. Now the new boss is settling old scores, and Taggart’s family are on his revenge list. His superiors tell him to hold back, but Taggart knows a bit about vengeance, too. 

  3. Kyle Gray (Community Manager) will be reading The Toronto Book of The Dead

    “I love short glimpses into history and my interests are pretty morbid to begin with so I'm really excited for The Toronto Book of The Dead.”

    This book explores Toronto’s history through the stories of its most fascinating and shadowy deaths, from ancient First Nations burial mounds to the grisly murder of Toronto’s first lighthouse keeper; from the rise and fall of the city’s greatest Victorian baseball star to the final days of the world’s most notorious anarchist.

    Fun fact: Synora Van Drine, our Sales Manager, is also excited for this one!

  4. Jenny McWha (Assistant Production Editor) will be reading The Artsy Mistake Mystery

    “I'm most looking forward to The Artsy Mistake Mystery. I can totally relate to Stephen's worrying, and I can't wait to find out what mishaps Stephen, Renée, Ping, and Pong get themselves into!”

    When outdoor art is disappearing all over the neighbourhood, everyone thinks that Renée’s brother, Attila, is behind it. But, grumpy teen though he is, Attila can do no wrong in Renée’s eyes, so she enlists Stephen’s help to catch the real criminal.

  5. Lorena Gonzalez Guillen (Production Editor) will be reading Booking In

    Like Sheila, Lorena loves mysteries as well! She can’t wait to see if Crang succeeds…or not.


    Fletcher Marshall is a Toronto antiquarian book dealer, internationally respected in the business. One night, someone blows the safe in his office and makes off with the contents, which include an infamous forged first edition of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnets from the Portuguese that is in itself a collector’s item. Crang gets on the hunt, learning much about the trade in musty books and the lucrative business it makes for forgers. Just as he seems to be getting close to answers, a shocking development makes things much more complicated — and much more dangerous.
