I'm going to have to cram all the October Treasures in My Closet into one post. It's for a good reason. I have tons of September book releases to review for you. So, this post will include a lot of titles, one way or another.
Jessica Ellicott introduces readers to two amateur sleuths in Murder in an English Village. After the Great War, American adventuress Beryl Helliwell reunites with her old school friend, Edwina Davenport, when Edwina advertises for a roomer. After Beryl spreads the rumor that the two are special agents, Edwina is attacked, and they realize their search for answers to a wartime disappearance is stirring up trouble. (Release date is Oct. 31.)
In the latest Hogarth Shakespeare retelling of Shakespeare, Edward St. Aubyn takes on King Lear in Dunbar. In his dotage, Henry Dunbar, once the powerful head of a global media corporation, hands over the care of his company to his two oldest daughters, only to end up imprisoned in Meadowmeade, an upscale sanatorium. When he escapes, his family is following. Who will find him, his beloved youngest daughter, or the two women prepared to take over his estate? (Release date is Oct. 3.)
In Will Thomas' Old Scores, a Japanese diplomat is murdered in London in 1890. Cyrus Barker, private enquiry agent and occasional agent for the Foreign Service Office, is the prime suspect. He and his sidekick Llewelyn must work against the clock to find the real killer. (Release date is Oct. 3.)
And, here are the other October releases that were not summarized.
The Summer that Made Us by Robyn Carr
Smile by Roddy Doyle
American Radical: Inside the World of an Undercover Muslim FBI Agent by Tamer Elnoury

I know it's a long blog piece with a lot of titles. Is there anything that jumps out at you?
