LAST INSTRUCTIONS by Nir Hezroni
“Hezroni builds on the characters and setup of 2017’s THREE ENVELOPES in this nail-biter centered on the desperate efforts of an ultrasecret Israeli intelligence group, known simply as the Organization, to stop a sociopathic rogue operative. Thriller fans will be enthralled as well as disturbed.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE SHADOW KILLER by Arnaldur Indridason
In the second book in the compelling new series following November 2017 LibraryReads pick THE SHADOW DISTRICT, Flóvent and Thorson’s murder investigation will lead them down a path darker than either of them expected, and force them to reckon with their own demons. “Indridason’s voice, straightforward and tinged with sadness, works particularly well here, as he coaxes out tragic secrets and captures the occupation’s impact with intriguing period detail, particularly the social impact of Reykjavik’s emerging nightlife and the Icelandic Nationalist Party’s Nazi legacy.” — Booklist readmoreremove
