Thriller Thursday (7/5/18 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday to these great new mysteries on shelves this week:

STAY HIDDEN by Paul Doiron
Also available in audio
Two starred reviews! A supposed hunting accident becomes a dangerously complicated murder investigation in this intricately-plotted new thriller featuring Maine Game Warden Mike Bowditch. “The plot is complex, and the action intense, made all the more so by forbidding terrain. The extraordinary sense of place makes this Doiron’s strongest novel yet.” — Booklist, starred review

BOUND FOR GOLD by William Martin
Martin’s sixth Peter Fallon novel centers on a stolen Gold Rush journal believed to reveal the location of an actual river, which could set off a modern gold rush in San Francisco. “Fascinating and surprisingly fast-paced, this adrenaline-packed adventure is sprinkled with love, betrayal, and violent death: old-fashioned storytelling at its best, in the style of Peter Carey’s TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG and Wilbur Smith’s Courtney novels.” — Booklist, starred review

PANDORA’S BOY by Lindsey Davis
A suspicious death that leads to a murder sends Flavia Albia down a twisted path to expose corruption, betrayal, and gang activity in ancient Rome. “The reader will be repeatedly astonished by the tricks Flavia has up her sleeve… For fans of crime fiction set in the ancient world, this one is not to be missed.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
