Thriller Thursday (4/9/15 Edition)

Today’s #ThrillerThursday picks star a couple of reporters, a bookseller-turned-sleuth and an officer forced to marry against his will!

A SCOURGE OF VIPERS by Bruce DeSilva
Two stars for Edgar-winner DeSilva’s excellent fourth Liam Mulligan novel, which finds the Providence, RI investigative journalist pursuing the truth behind a series of murders that appear linked to the governor, colorfully known as “Attila the Nun.” “DeSilva’s Edgar and Macavity Award-winning books is a consistently well-written hard-boiled series. Quality all the way.” — Library Journal, starred review

COMPULSION by Allison Brennan
NYC investigative reporter Max Revere is convinced a recently captured serial killer is hiding more bodies, but police won’t listen to her. “Investigative reporter Maxine Revere returns in this strong follow-up to NOTORIOUS. The pacing is relentless, and the suspense just keeps building until the satisfying ending. An excellent addition to the series.” — Booklist

PRIDE V PREJUDICE by Joan Hess
“Prolific mystery writer Hess, who recently won the Malice Domestic Award for Lifetime Achievement, returns with her 20th book in the ‘Claire Malloy’ series. Laced with her trademark humor, Hess’s latest novel proves once again that good cozy mysteries need not only take place in picturesque English villages—small college towns in Arkansas will do just fine.” — Library Journal

THE RUSSIAN BRIDE by Ed Kovacs
This “brisk, easy-to-read thriller”* set in the world of counterintelligence features an officer forced to marry a Russian woman with connections to the mob, putting his family and life in double jeopardy. “Readers who like their heroes focused and fearsome…will want to see more of Bennings.” — *Publishers Weekly
