Thriller Thursday (12/10/15 Edition)

We hope you’ve been following all the great mystery & thriller recommendations on Twitter from your fellow librarians (hashtag #libfaves15). Today we celebrate five new spine-tingling books out this week and next:

DESPERATE MEASURES by Jo Bannister
Bannister’s third series outing finds police officer Hazel Best helping her friend Gabriel Ash rescue his family from Somali pirates. “Bannister stays true to her reputation for excellent police procedurals. Readers will be unable to put down this latest tale of suspense.” — Library Journal

DARK TIDES by Chris Ewan
When another Halloween brings another death, a young police officer on the Isle of Man suspects they are connected to dark secrets in her own past. “There are dark and stormy nights, children playing in a dark wood, and more of the usual horror tropes here, all helping to create a sinister atmosphere. In a chilling page-turner that spans 20 years, Ewan explores the darker side of Manx folklore.” — Booklist

WEB OF DECEIT by Katherine Howell
Australian author Howell makes her U.S. debut with her “excellent”* sixth mystery starring Sydney police detectives Ella Marconi and her partner, Murray Shakespeare, in which they must investigate a suspicious suicide turned gruesome murder. “How the main characters balance the pressures and stresses of their professional and private lives further elevates the brisk plot.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred review

CINNAMON TOASTED by Gail Oust

In Oust’s third Spice Shop mystery, Piper Prescott must find out who’s willing to kill for computer software. “The spice-shop backstory provides a delicious spin on the culinary-mystery formula, and Oust does a nice job of keeping the killer well hidden. A flavorful blend of crime and small-town life.” — Booklist

THE MAN ON THE WASHING MACHINE by Susan Cox
“Winner of the Minotaur/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award, this delightful debut cozy introduces the feisty and intrepid Theo along with a cast of colorful, idiosyncratic San Francisco denizens. Readers of Jacqueline Girdner, Elaine Flinn, or Rebecca M. Hale will be pleased to discover an up-and-coming author to follow.” — Library Journal
