It’s #thrillerthursday and we’re reading:

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

Dark Water by Parker Bilal

“Bilal’s sixth (City of Jackals, 2016, etc.) again plants a seed of suspense as an entree into a nuanced look at an unfamiliar culture.”–Kirkus Reviews

“The relentless pacing and meticulously descriptive prose make this a page-turner.”–Publishers Weekly

Down a Dark Road by Linda Castillo

A July 2017 Library Reads pick!

“Castillo once again weaves the particularities of the Amish mindset into a complex mystery that will leave you crying with pity or seething with rage.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Castillo works in fine details and insight into Amish life, but this is no gentle read—there is plenty of tension and some good red herrings that will keep any mystery reader satisfied.” — Booklist

“Thrilling… Castillo skillfully sets each scene, compelling readers to fear the raging stream, sense the tension in a room, and yes, even smell the manure.” — Publishers Weekly

The Third Nero by Lindsey Davis

“Davis has never been better at using actual political turmoil in the service of a page-turning plot than in her fifth novel set in first-century Rome featuring freelance investigator Flavia Alba (after 2016’s The Graveyard of the Hesperides)… Davis successfully maintains a high level of tension throughout.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Another Man’s Ground by Claire Booth

“Appealing… Booth’s affectionate treatment of the decent and shrewd people of Branson and Worth makes this a series worth following.”–Publishers Weekly

Moskva by Jack Grimwood

“This is the first thriller by the speculative-fiction writer also known as Jon Courtenay Grimwood, and it demonstrates that great storytelling is not bound by genre. The jacket cover proclaims Moskva to be Fatherland meets Gorky Park. That’s not a bad comparison, though the body count suggests a little bit more of Child 44. Recent events make this tale of Russian intrigue especially timely. As one character ominously says, “We might have lost the Cold War. . . . we intend to win the thaw.””–
Booklist, starred review

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

The Year’s Best Crime Novels: 2017 (full list) — Top 10 Crime Novels & Best Crime Fiction Debuts

LET THE DEVIL OUT by Bill Loehfelm
New Orleans rookie cop and loose cannon Maureen Coughlin is tasked with helping the FBI track a white supremacist group. Will Maureen go rogue again, or will she channel what she calls her “killing feeling” into doing good police work? Not only has Loehfelm created the most compelling, complex patrol cop in the genre; he has also reenergized New Orleans as a setting for the best in crime fiction, edgy, dangerous, but pulsing with life.

THE DRY by Jane Harper
Harper’s small-town, big-secrets page-turner tells the story of Aaron Falk, who returns to his Australian hometown to attend the funeral of a friend believed to have shot his wife and son and then killed himself. Falk begins to question the details of the crime and, together with the town’s police sergeant, undertakes an investigation that unearths secrets new and old, some involving Falk’s father. A stunning debut reminiscent of Peter Corliss’ Cliff Hardy series.

Find out what inspired Jane Harper to write THE DRY in Booklist Reader’s “Clues to My Crime” column!

THREE YEARS WITH THE RAT by Jay Hosking
Neuroscientist Hosking turns in a startlingly fine performance with his first novel, about a man so determined to find his missing sister that he risks his own reality to solve the mystery of her disappearance. It’s quickly apparent that this is one of those mind-bending thrillers in which time and space are fluid concepts, but Hosking draws us in completely to his labyrinthine narrative.

For titles reviewed from May 1, 2016 through April 15, 2017.

Top 10 Crime Fiction Audiobooks: 2017 (full list)

BEHIND HER EYES by Sarah Pinborough, read by Bea Holland and others
A fine cast of narrators voices this complex, riveting story of a love triangle based on obsession and deceit.

A GREAT RECKONING by Louise Penny, read by Robert Bathurst
Using realistic voices and impeccable nuances, Bathurst portrays a cast of quirky characters in this atmospheric, multilayered mystery.

For titles reviewed from April 1, 2016 through April 15, 2017.

Plus, Benjamin Black’s EVEN THE DEAD, read by John Keating, is listed as a great listen-alike for Celtic Noir!

Trend Alert: Suburban Suspense (full list)

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS by B. A. Paris
The marriage of Grace Harrington and Jack Angel seemed perfect, except for what went on behind closed doors. On their honeymoon, Grace’s new husband, Jack, reveals his psychopathic nature, using Grace’s deep love for her special-needs sister, Millie, as leverage in concocting a depraved scheme that will ruin both women.

COME SUNDOWN by Nora Roberts
Alice Bodine turns up at her family’s Montana ranch and luxury resort battered, bruised, and with no memory of her old life, 25 years after running away. Her niece puts Alice’s return together with the recent murders of two women and suspects that someone very twisted may be living nearby.

TRULY MADLY GUILTY by Liane Moriarty
Moriarty handles neighborhood secrets, indiscretions, and twists like no one else. A spontaneous barbecue upends the lives of three couples in suburban Sydney. From the start, readers know that something terrible has happened—Erika can’t quite remember the details, Clementine doesn’t want to remember them, and their husbands are struggling with the aftermath. But it’s not until midway through the story that Moriarty shows her hand.

A Hard-Boiled Gazetteer to the Pacific Rim (full list)
AUSTRALIA

THE BROKEN SHORE by Peter Temple
This first in a series stars Melbourne homicide detective Joe Cashin, who has been temporarily reassigned to his hometown in rural Australia while he recovers from injuries only slowly explained. But despite its remote landscape, the little town of Port Munro generates some big-city crime. Evoking a view of the continent that is more Ian Rankin than Crocodile Dundee, Temple tells a troubling tale of race and class conflict—with an even darker crime at the heart of it. This deeply intelligent thriller starts slowly, builds inexorably, and ends unforgettably.

CRUCIFIXION CREEK by Barry Maitland
Sydney homicide detective Harry Belltree is as hard-boiled as they come, a kind of Australian Dirty Harry with a little of Lawrence Block’s Matt Scudder, who once said to a killer he was about to dispatch, “I just don’t want you to be alive anymore.” This installment in Maitland’s unsparingly dark series provides backstory, explaining how Harry got to be Harry and how he developed his investigative style: shake the tree, see who falls out, and kill them. So old school you can smell the cordite. readmoreremove

Thriller Thursday (7/7/16 Edition)

Two cops, the ghost of Typhoid Mary and a tragically murdered Amish woman are in today’s #ThrillerThursday lineup:

LET THE DEVIL OUT by Bill Loehfelm
A BEA 2016 “Shout ‘n Share” pick! “Not only has Loehfelm created the most compelling, complex patrol cop in the genre—part take-no-prisoners badass, part too-sensitive-for-the street rookie—he has also reenergized New Orleans as a setting for the best in crime fiction, going well beyond the clichés (no Cafe du Monde here) and nailing that rich Treme vibe—edgy, dangerous, but pulsing with life. Maureen Coughlin is as good as it gets.” — Booklist, starred review

MIDNIGHT CROSSING by Tricia Fields
Josie Gray, police chief of a West Texas border town on the front lines of the fight against illegal immigration, finds one of its casualties right on her doorstep. “Fields wraps a complex plot and ripped-from-the-headlines social relevance around a terrific heroine, scoring big for women in law enforcement.” — Publishers Weekly

THE PRISONER OF HELL GATE by Dana I. Wolff
An instant classic of supernatural suspense centered on a group of friends who find themselves unwittingly trapped on an island with a vengeful Typhoid Mary. “A strong, quick, and perfectly upsetting little shocker.” — Booklist readmoreremove
