#ThrillerThursday (3/21/19)

Today’s #ThrillerThursday celebration features a cozy series-starter, the aftermath of a family tragedy, an eagerly-awaited sequel, a Bostonian bike courier, and a military thriller!

MURDER ONCE REMOVED: Ancestry Detective (Volume 1) by S. C. Perkins
“This debut features an intelligent genealogist detective, a strong supporting cast, some romantic tension, and information about Texas history that should appeal to readers of Rett MacPherson’s genealogy mysteries as well as cozy lovers who prefer a dash of history in their mysteries.”–Library Journal (starred review, Debut of the Month)

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE by Jesse Blackadder
“Issues of trust, the burden of responsibility, and forgiveness are dealt with on an expert level. This is a masterpiece of women’s fiction, as the complexities and intricacies of both the characters and the situations are devastatingly and utterly realistic. The story is raw in its intimacy, grabbing hold of the readers’ heart, and not letting go.”–Booklist, starred review

REDEMPTION POINT by Candice Fox

“Wrongly accused of abducting Claire Bingley, former police detective Ted Conkaffey is protecting himself from Claire’s murderous father by hiding out in a remote town in the Australian rain forest and trying to find the real culprit. Meanwhile, the detective inspector investigating the killing of two bartenders at the local Barking Frog Inn is a homicide first timer. Enter tattooed-to-the-hilt Amanda Pharrell, a private detective who’s done time for murder and who joins with Ted to discover who’s responsible for all the blood. Just the way Ned Kelly Award–winning Fox joins forces with James Patterson now and again.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

MAKE ME A CITY by Jonathan Carr

“The rise of Chicago in the 19th century provides the frame for a trove of colorful stories and characters in this entertaining debut novel…Carr has a sure touch, and in many extended anecdotes, his narrative skills show exceptional detail, pacing, and tension. A solid storyteller enlivens a rich patch of American history.”–Kirkus Reviews
