May Mystery Stars

It’s a #ThrillerThursday bonus! Check out these forthcoming mysteries with multiple starred reviews:

HE SAID/SHE SAID by Erin Kelly
“This first-rate psychological thriller and deft exploration of the delicate dance of marriage and the secrets people keep works on multiple levels, and the passages about the early days of Laura and Kit’s relationship—filled with the gossamer promise of new love—make what’s in store for them even more harrowing. A stunning conclusion will take more than a few days to fade from memory. Spellbinding.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This is a sure bet for readers who like their psychological suspense heavy on character and full of twists.” — Booklist, starred review

THE DEVIL’S MUSE by Bill Loehfelm
“A rookie New Orleans cop discovers that regular rules don’t apply during Mardi Gras, when a shooting sets off a cascading series of violent events. Loehfelm doesn’t need showy murders or gory scenes to writes crime stories with grit that stay lodged in your brain and get under your skin in the best possible way.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Coughlin remains the star here—she’s still one of the most compelling figures in crime fiction—but this time, the focus is on cops working together; it’s a procedural in the best sense of the word, and it evokes Ed McBain at the top of his game. ” — Booklist, starred review

LET THE DEAD SPEAK by Jane Casey
“In Casey’s compelling, high-tension seventh mystery featuring London’s Det. Constable Maeve Kerrigan, Kerrigan’s homicide team wonder whether their approach has provoked additional crimes from suspects terrified into trying to protect their own secrets. The intricate plot unfolds naturally, as Casey never lets readers stray from Kerrigan’s point of view, so that they feel as if they are figuring it all out with her in this increasingly dark and tragic story.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

“These character-driven Kerrigan mysteries are among the genre’s finest, and the last page here is likely to leave readers breathless and longing for Casey’s next.” — Booklist, starred review

THE LAST PLACE YOU LOOK by Kristen Lepionka
“Introducing a fascinating protagonist who combats her emotional demons with the aid of sugar, booze, and sex, this suspenseful, original, and confident debut will please fans of the hard-boiled PI genre.” — Library Journal, starred review & debut of the month pick

“This is a remarkably accomplished debut mystery, with sensitive character development and a heart-stopping denouement. Let’s hope there are more Roxane Weary novels on the way.” — Booklist, starred review
