Thriller Thursday (6/2/16 Edition)

Three detectives and two true crime stories are part of today’s all-star #ThrillerThursday lineup:

STEALING THE COUNTESS by David Housewright
“A Stradivarius goes missing and all hell breaks loose in the thirteenth entry in Edgar-winning Housewright’s very strong Mac McKenzie series. Greatly enhancing the story are the fascinating details Housewright provides on the history and design of these priceless instruments.” Booklist, starred review

A GOOD MONTH FOR MURDER: The Inside Story of a Homicide Squad by Del Quentin Wilber
“With the police chief granting almost unprecedented access, Wilber was able to produce a rare snapshot of homicide investigation in action, from crime scenes through families’ homes, interrogation rooms, and squad rooms. A fascinating report written in a relentless, real-life noir tone.” — Booklist, starred review

TRUE CRIME ADDICT: How I Lost Myself in the Mysterious Disappearance of Maura Murray by James Renner
“Former investigative journalist Renner takes the reader on his dark journey unraveling the disappearance of University of Massachusetts Amherst student Maura Murray, who went missing in 2004. An entrancing, brilliant next step for fans of the podcast Serial, Netflix’s Making a Murderer, and other true crime cases.”
Library Journal, starred review

SEVEN DAYS DEAD by John Farrow
Retired Montreal police detective Émile Cinq-Mars is on an island vacation with his wife when he’s drawn into a murder investigation. “Cinq-Mars is a master at teasing meaning out of nuance, both in his encounters with suspects and in his wonderfully rich relationship with his wife. A delight for followers of Louise Penny and Donna Leon.” — Booklist, starred review

CITY OF JACKALS by Parker Bilal
Detective Makana’s latest investigations during the political uprising in Cairo continue the dangers he fled in Khartoum. “A new best for this absorbing series, this fifth entry offers a must-read, street-level look at African politics; a compelling personal journey; and a top-rate mystery.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
