Thriller Thursday – Minotaur Stars Edition

Today’s #ThrillerThursday picks are two forthcoming Minotaur mysteries that are raking in the starred pre-publication reviews!

THE DEVIL’S MAKING by Seán Haldane
Winner of the Arthur Ellis Award, an historical mystery in which an alienist is found murdered near an Indian camp and a British constable must navigate the conflicting cultures to discover why.

“Poet, publisher, and psychologist Haldane makes his fiction debut with an exceptional historical set on Vancouver Island, with this winner of Canada’s Arthur Ellis Award for best novel. A host of intriguing characters combine with Haldane’s firm grasp of the period to make this an enthralling read.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Haldane never shies away from period-specific language and attitudes, which make readers feel as though they are walking the dirty streets of Victoria by his side. Historical whodunit fans will relish this exciting trip to 19th-century frontier Canada.” — Library Journal, starred review

“Haldane’s first mystery, evocative and elegantly written, is a deeply philosophical look at a relatively unknown historical period.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE STORM MURDERS by John Farrow
“In Farrow’s smart, enthralling fourth Émile Cinq-Mars thriller, the retired Montreal police detective consults on a case involving the murder of a married couple at an isolated Quebec farmhouse. The hair-raising action moves from New Orleans to Alabama and back to Quebec, building to a brilliantly executed conclusion.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

One of the best mysteries from Canada in some time, this fourth book in a strong series is equally good at capturing the atmosphere of New Orleans and the distinctive qualities of Montreal.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Farrow (the pen name of Canadian writer Trevor Ferguson) has written an excellent thriller in which characters, plot, and setting score a triple for suspense.”
Library Journal, starred review

Minotaur Books will publish THE DEVIL’S MAKING on May 5 and THE STORM MURDERS on May 26.
