Good to Go 

What you should be buying next month.

1. Best American Crime Writing 2004, edited by Otto Penzler and Thomas H. Cook (Pantheon, $29.95). These previously published articles by James Ellroy, Jon Krakauer, and others examine drugs, guns, and cold cases that refuse to die.

2. Invisible Heroes, by Belleruth Naparstek (Bantam, $25). Life's rough, but it's rougher for trauma survivors, as this psychotherapist explains in a reader-friendly work that offers new hope for people with PTSD.

3. Motorcycle Mania, by Jesse James (Viking, $18.95). Bad-boy bike builder James, who inherited his outlaw namesake's sense of adventure, stars in this coffee-table confection that follows him at work, on the open road, and in Iraq.

4. Fifty Best Mysteries, edited by Eleanor Sullivan (Carroll & Graf, $15). Stories by Ruth Rendell, Patricia Highsmith, and Robert Bloch are among the engaging, bite-sized suspensers arranged here by decade from the 1940s forward.

5. Persepolis 2, by Marjane Satrapi (Pantheon, $17.95). In this bravely revealing second volume of her cartoon autobiography, Iranian-born artist Satrapi recounts her teenage years in Europe, including the period she spent homeless and living in the street.
