3 Stars for THE BITTERROOTS!

Whoa, nelly! C.J. Box’s THE BITTERROOTS just received its THIRD starred review!

“An appealing new heroine, a fast-moving plot, and a memorably nightmarish family make this one of Box’s best.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Not content with merely ruling Wyoming, Box has become the dominant mystery/thriller author of the mountain West—and deservedly so. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With an announced 300,000-copy run and Box’s legions of fans, there’s not a library in the U.S. that can afford to ignore this one.”–Booklist, starred review

“Vividly etched characters and a realistic plot lift this outing, and the well-done Montana setting is a plus. Box remains at the top of his game.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

TOM & LUCKY (and George & Cokey Flo) by C. Joseph Greaves

Now for some new mysteries hitting shelves this month:

WIDOWMAKER by Paul Doiron
A June 2016 LibraryReads pick! In this riveting new novel from Edgar finalist Doiron, Game Warden Mike Bowditch is on the trail of a ruthless vigilante amid the snow-covered mountains of Maine. “The suspense is strong and the action is well rendered. WIDOWMAKER will go down well with armchair outdoorsfolk, especially fans of C. J. Box and Craig Johnson.” — Booklist

PRESSURE by Brian Keane
A free diver is called in to investigate a seismological event in the Indian Ocean when events take a deadly turn and she and her crew must fight the monsters in the depths and those ashore. “Don’t just suggest to horror readers—although Keene does include a few fun insider references for genre fans. This is a perfect beach read for fans of Michael Crichton, Mira Grant, or Preston and Child—if you dare to take this book anywhere near an open body of water.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
