Terror and thrills lurk behind the pages of these #ThrillerThursday picks:

A MOST NOVEL REVENGE by Ashley Weaver
In librarian Weaver’s third entry in the LibraryReads/Edgar-nominated charming mystery series set in 1930s England, Amory and Milo Ames are drawn into the investigation of a years-old murder by a salacious novelist in the English countryside. “Fascinating and stylish characters fill out a finely tuned traditional mystery.”
Publishers Weekly

THE GRAVEYARD APARTMENT by Mariko Koike
A terrifying tale of a young family who moves into an apartment building next to a graveyard, and the horrors that are unleashed upon them. “The haunting itself is well done and scary. The atmosphere and anticipation build perfectly to create an apartment building one would be quite hesitant to live in. Fans of classic ghost stories, such as THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, will appreciate the subtle chills.” — Booklist readmoreremove

ALL THE LITTLE LIARS by Charlaine Harris
#1 New York Times bestseller Charlaine Harris returns to her Aurora Teagarden mystery series with a fabulous new book (the first in over a decade!) featuring the small-town Southern librarian. “Aurora, now married to true-crime writer Robin Crusoe and pregnant, learns that four children, including her 15-year-old brother, Phillip, have wisped away into thin air after soccer practice. What’s worse, a dead body lies exactly where the children were thought to be heading.” Library Journal, pre-pub alert

THE MOTION OF PUPPETS by Keith Donohue
This new horror novel from the bestselling author of the LibraryReads pick THE BOY WHO DREW MONSTERS (which has been optioned for film) is a modern take on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth. “Intricately plotted, absorbing, and suspenseful, this is a moving, modern story set in what feels like a fairy-tale world but is actually terrifyingly realistic.” — Booklist, starred review

A Library Journal “Summer Promise Debut Novels” pick & BEA 2016 “Shout ‘n Share” selection! This haunting debut novel is narrated by the ghost of Joanna DeAngelis, a woman who plots revenge on her much-younger ex-boyfriend. “THE NEXT is fast-paced and engrossing reading for anyone who has entertained revenge fantasies (so much easier when you’re a ghost) and for readers of dysfunctional family fiction with some humor, like Jonathan Tropper’s THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU.” — Booklist

LJ Genre Spotlight: Edge-of-Your-Seat Thrills

LJ mystery genre spotlightAccording to Library Journal‘s recent genre spotlight, mysteries still rule! Make sure you’ve got all the Macmillan titles mentioned for your growing collection:
Escaping the Ordinary

DAISY IN CHAINS by Sharon Bolton
On sale: Sept. 20, 2016
A criminal defense attorney with a reputation for getting the wrongly convicted exonerated is drawn into the machinations of a serial killer who claims innocence. “Bolton plays with reader’s perceptions,” comments [Minotaur editorial director Kelley] Ragland, “constantly shifting the ground under your feet as the story progresses.” And while she isn’t delivering an unreliable narrator, “she’s always got the reader where she wants her.”

Criminal Investigations

Female leads also dominate this spring’s crop of crime and police procedural novels. “Women protagonists are stronger than ever and comprise the majority of our list,” says Minotaur publicity manager Sarah Melnyk, who points out that many of these characters have careers in law enforcement or investigative work.

CITY OF THE LOST by Kelley Armstrong
On sale: May 5, 2016
An interesting switch for urban fantasy writer Armstrong. Her sharp protagonist is Casey Duncan, a detective with a dark past who seeks a fresh start in a remote Canadian town.

STRIPPED BARE by Shannon Baker
On sale: Sept. 6, 2016
A female Walt Longmire in Nebraska’s cattle country, Kate Fox must find out who shot her cheating husband, the county sheriff. “It might be a man’s world overall,” comments Tor/Forge senior editor Kristin Sevick, “but there’s virtually no avenue of sleuthing off-limits to women simply because of their gender. The West doesn’t belong only to the boys.”

REDEMPTION ROAD by John Hart
On sale: May 3, 2016
Back in small-town North Carolina, meet Elizabeth Black, a dedicated, driven, and deeply troubled detective and Hart’s first female protagonist. readmoreremove
