Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

The INSPY Board describes this novel about the tense months before the US entered WWII as “a masterly woven story that is engaging from beginning to end.” Naval officer Ensign Jim Avery escorts British convoys across the North Atlantic in a brand-new destroyer, the USS Atwood. Back on shore, Boston Navy Yard secretary Mary Stirling does her work quietly and efficiently, happy to be out of the limelight. When evidence of sabotage on the Atwood is found, Jim and Mary must work together to uncover the culprit.

The Shock of Night by Patrick W. Carr
(Bethany House; ISBN 9780764213465; ebook ISBN 9781441265463; $15.99)

The INSPY Board says, “This novel seamlessly combined the best of fantasy and mystery to create a unique story all its own. . . . A book not to be missed.” When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded, Willet Dura, reeve to the king of Bunard, is called to investigate. As he begins to question the priest, the man pulls him close, cries out in a foreign tongue—and dies. This strange encounter draws Willet into an epic conflict that threatens his entire world.
