Thriller Thursday (4/27/17 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday to new, mysteries, thrillers & true crime!

A SINGLE SPY by William Christie
Two starred reviews! During WWII, young Russian spy with divided loyalties, under deep cover in Nazi Germany, uncovers an assassination plot that could change the course of history. “With detailed historical events, compelling characters, and plenty of heart-grabbing moments, this novel is intensely engaging from the first page. Alexsi is complex and fully drawn; this is a spy who gains the reader’s trust while never showing his hand. Christie’s fabulous novel of historical espionage will appeal to both World War II fiction buffs and spy novel/thriller aficionados. Extremely well done.” — Library Journal, starred & boxed review

INCENDIARY: The Psychiatrist, the Mad Bomber, and the Invention of Criminal Profiling by Michael Cannell
Long before the specter of terrorism haunted the public imagination, a serial bomber stalked 1950s New York. The race to catch him would give birth to a new science called criminal profiling. You can also follow the “Mad Bomber” throughout NYC in this interactive map! “A fascinating study not just of a historical crime and its consequences, but also its unintended effects.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

COLD EARTH by Ann Cleeves
Read a Q&A with Ann Cleeves about COLD EARTH! “The ground shifts in more ways than one for Det. Insp. Jimmy Perez in CWA Diamond Dagger–winner Cleeves’s moody seventh Shetland mystery.
