A first-rate crafting of a tale about a series of heinous crimes


“No Good Deed” by James Swain. Thomas & Mercer. 336 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.

Protagonist’s self-esteem rocked by failure to protect a witness


“A Beautiful Voice” by Robert Lane. Mason Alley Publishing. 404 pages. Trade paperback. $14.95. It’s difficult, and not terribly important, to summarize the plot of Robert Lane’s latest novel, the sixth in his Jake Travis series.
