New releases

“Gone with the Win” by Mary Daheim (Morrow, $23.99). In the 28th installment in her “Bed-and-Breakfast Mystery” series, the Seattle author pens the story of B&B owner Judith McMonigle Flynn, who accepts an unwanted guest who has a decades-old murder case she’d like Judith to solve.

“Tiptoe Joe” by Ginger Foglesong Gibson and illustrated by Laura Rankin (Greenwillow, $17.99). For ages 3-5: A bear named Tiptoe Joe collects his noisy friends — the rabbit thump thumps, the beaver slap slaps — and urges them to “tiptoe lightly” to see a secret beneath the trees. His little “secret” is tucked fast asleep in mom’s arms in this sweet picture book by a Seattle author.

“The Lost Bank: The Story of Washington Mutual — The Biggest Bank Failure in American History” by Kirsten Grind (Simon and Schuster , $16). Now in paperback, this account of the Seattle-based bank’s demise “offers the pacing and energy of a fine thriller,” wrote Seattle Times economics columnist Jon Talton in a July 2012 review.

“Dirty Ground: The Tricky Space Between Sport and Comfort” by Kris Wilder and Lawrence A. Kane with Erik McCray (YMMA, $18.95). The Seattle authors, both self-defense experts, present conflict-ending techniques for martial artists, law enforcement, security professionals and others.
