Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran is one of our top summer reads this July. It is the first in a brand new series, and Claire DeWitt has all the makings of a favorite detective. Claire must return to Katrina-ravaged New Orleans, the city that haunts her past, to answer the call of an unsolvable murder. Her tactics range from befriending homeless men to experimenting with drugs, but at her core, she's a super smart sleuth, always one step ahead.

The trailer from HMH gives a preview of Sara Gran's unorthodox thriller:

If that's not enticing enough, check out what our reviewer had to say: "This is a page-turner with an unexpected ending that will leave readers wondering what is just around the corner for Claire DeWitt and her unlikely crew of accomplices."
