Thriller Thursday (4/13/17 Edition)

We’ve got two amazing debuts and three excellent series entries for you this #ThrillerThursday:

IF WE WERE VILLAINS by M.L. Rio
A literary debut in the tradition of Donna Tartt’s THE SECRET HISTORY about a group of seven young actors studying Shakespeare at an elite arts school who find their friendship turned into nasty rivalry that leaves one of them dead after a teacher switches around the in-character casting. “This novel about obsession at the conservatory will thoroughly obsess you.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THREE ENVELOPES by Nir Hezroni
A thrilling debut that delves into the twisted mind of a rogue agent in the Israeli intelligence agency and his mysterious plot for revenge. “Hezroni’s superior thriller debut will send chills up the spines of even jaded genre fans. Hezroni maintains a high level of suspense as he expertly toggles between past and present en route to the heart-stopping conclusion.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

DEVIL’S BREATH by G.M. Malliet
Max Tudor must contend with his new role as a father as well as the murder of a glamorous film star in the next installment in Malliet’s wildly popular series. “Though dedicated readers may miss local favorites, it’s great to see the return of Malliet’s wit in a high-seas whodunit that deftly skewers the Hollywood high life.” — Kirkus Reviews

DANGEROUS TO KNOW by Renee Patrick
This second book in the series starring secretary Lillian Frost and costume designer Edith Head is a champagne cocktail of a mystery covered in movie magic stardust. “The authors—Renee Patrick is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team—flesh out Head’s character considerably, the story is intricate and surprising, and the partnership between Head and her good friend Frost sets the stage for many further adventures. A major step up from the first book in the series.” — Booklist

MURDER IS FOR KEEPS by Elizabeth Duncan
The latest book in an award-winning mystery series, celebrated for its small-town charm and picturesque Welsh setting and starring amateur sleuth Penny Brannigan. “Fascination with a ruined faux castle involves an artist in a case of murder in North Wales. Duncan’s character-driven series delivers again.” — Kirkus Reviews
