Darktown by Thomas Mullen. A novel about the first eight black ("Negro" in the parlance of the era) police officers to be hired by the city of Atlanta in 1948. Times certainly have changed, thankfully for all of us, but this is a good read.

Six Four, Hideo Yokoyama. Smoothly translated from the Japanese. Cold case missing girl from 16 years ago and now the lead detective's own daughter has gone missing. I'm only a few pages in but enjoying it so far.

Thrawn by Timothy Zahn...if you are a fan of the original Thrawn trilogy, or just Star Wars in general, I highly recommend it.

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, Lisa See. While I know none of you manly types are sissy tea drinkers, j/k, this novel's backstory treats with pu'er tea from the wild mountains of China where it may be plucked from a 400-year-old tree by Chinese minority tribespeople and sold for $hundreds or $thousands an ounce. The story itself follows a minority girl who has to give up her child for adoption to an American couple due to her tribes mores and traditions. Lisa See is that good a writer that a couple of times the guy next door must have been chopping onions, dang him all to heck.

I read 4 chapters so far. I don't understand what the short mythology stories at the end of the chapters have to do with anything
