The accused try to prove their innocence in new crime stories by Mary Higgins Clark and Brendan Dubois. In The Sleeping Beauty Murder by Clark, Casey Carter, who served a 15-year sentence for manslaughter in the death of her fiancé, asks Laurie Morgan, producer of the show Under Suspicion, to help prove her innocence. “A clever plot and a cast of intriguing characters” boosts this tale. In Storm Cell by Brendan DuBois, Lewis Cole tries to save a close friend from a death row. The friend, a former mob enforcer, certainly looks guilty, but Cole believes it was a frame up. Dubois “gives us scene upon scene of incredible tension, relieved by Cole’s mordant wit” (Booklist).
