April New Mystery/Crime Publications: Reading Room Picks

April is bringing some much wanted warmer weather and some amazing new mystery/crime titles to read while you sit outside soaking up the beautiful weather.  The old joke that a book lover's favorite outside activity is reading outside certainly resonates with those of us who are passionate about the written page.  So, as I am desperately trying to still catch up with the new publications from the first three months of the year, I am looking at many April titles that I know I just can't miss.  Below are some of the April books that I find particularly appealing.
