Start your Halloween off with six new thrillers reviewed by Margaret Cannon. Also this week, we talk to Willie O’Ree, who has a new memoir out detailing his time as the NHL’s first Black player, and Indian author Arundhati Roy, whose new book of essays offers a grim assessment of the state of her country. Anna Olson talks about launching a new cookbook and baking during a pandemic, and Globe Books editor Judith Pereira writes about what she’s been reading for an escape these past few months. Keep up to date @globebooks, and if this newsletter was forwarded to you and you'd like to subscribe, please visit our newsletter signup page. Happy Halloween! Lori Fazari
