"The Lazarus Man" by J.D. Mason
When a young female city employee is murdered, the case brings together an unlikely team: an investigative reporter whose career is on the line, a lead detective who would rather work alone, and an elderly, delusional homeless man named Lazarus who frequents the shelter where the victim volunteered. Lazarus claims he witnessed the killing-though his hold on reality is questionable. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and with the detective at the helm, the trio soon unearths a shocking truth no one would have ever suspected.
"Tomorrow's Edge" by Victor McGlothin
Smart, sexy P.I. Vera Miles is an expert at finding people who don't want to be found. But her latest client is a rare, and possibly dangerous, exception: a handsome drifter with amnesia who believes he's killed someone-though he can't remember who or why. Is the man guilty of murder or innocent and in big trouble? With no clues, Vera takes a shot in the dark that sends her on a trail from the local diner to the medical examiner's office to the seedy digs of a street informant, all the way to the FBI. But as she gets closer to solving the mystery, Vera wonders if her client is better off without his memory.
