It’s a slushy gray Thursday, perfect mystery-reading weather:

THE THIRD VICTIM by Phillip Margolin
Also available in audio
Regina Barrister, a legendary criminal defense attorney, has agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of defending Alex Mason—a prominent local attorney accused of kidnapping, torture, and murder. Yet Regina’s young co-counsel is worried her boss’s behavior and the details in the case against their client don’t quite add up. “Margolin continues his return to the exceptional form of his early novels with this gripping, tightly plotted, and smoothly written legal thriller.” — Booklist

MEMENTO MORI by Ruth Downie
The eighth gripping novel in the bestselling Medicus series, in which Ruso and Tilla investigate the death of the wife of Ruso’s friend in the sacred hot spring of Aquae Sulis. “Highly recommended for series fans and readers of Lindsey Davis’s Roman mysteries, but it also serves as a worthy stand-alone.” — Library Journal readmoreremove

Thriller Thursday (2/22/18 Edition)

The stars are aligning for two historical mysteries this #ThrillerThursday, plus a FREE cozy mystery sampler!

THE WOMAN IN THE WATER by Charles Finch
Two starred reviews & Finch won the NBCC’s 2017 Nona Balakian Citation for Excellence in Reviewing Award! In Charles Lenox’s very first case in 1850, a trunk containing the body of a young woman is found floating in the Thames River. “With its splendidly drawn characters and brisk, supple prose, this can be either an inviting introduction to readers new to Finch’s accomplished series or a winning addition to the canon for established fans.” — Booklist, starred review

THE THRONE OF CAESAR by Steven Saylor
It’s Rome, 44 B.C., Julius Caesar has been appointed dictator for life by the Roman Senate, and the Ides of March is approaching…. “Can a murder whose killers’ identities and motives are known in advance provide the basis for a gripping whodunit? Saylor answers that question with a definitive yes in his thrilling and moving 16th novel featuring Gordianus the Finder.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
