Thriller Thursday (8/30/18 Edition)

Happy #ThrillerThursday! Read Elsa Hart’s (CITY OF INK) Mystery Scene Magazine essay about her quest to replace a Chinese library book she lost before plunging into these three dark thrillers:

TRUST ME by Hank Phillippi Ryan
Also available in audio
An accused killer insists she’s innocent of a heinous murder. A grieving journalist surfaces from the wreckage of her shattered life. Their unlikely alliance leads to a dangerous cat-and-mouse game that will leave readers breathless. “This is the first stand-alone for Ryan, author of the Jane Ryland–Jake Brogan mystery series, and it’s a knockout. Truth is elusive here, as the plot twists, driven by guilt and desperation, and tension grows. First-rate psychological suspense.” — Booklist, starred review

BLACKOUT by Ragnar Jónasson
Also available in trade paperback
The third book in the Dark Iceland series from a spectacular new crime writer. “Jónasson’s exotic tundra setting, fascinating characters, and gifted storytelling make up for it. Recommended for fans of Chris Ould’s Faroes series and Camilla Läckberg’s Fjallbacka thrillers.” — Booklist readmoreremove

#thrillerthursday (08/31)

Welcome to #thrillerthursday on this very last day of August!

Kill the Heroes by David Thurlo

“This fast-paced mystery makes an easygoing read, spiced with plenty of humor… A solid southwestern mystery.”–Booklist

Dark River Rising by John Rogers

“A local criminal is found tortured to death, a snake stitched into his belly, and Baton Rouge Police Detective Wallace Hartman fears that she’s about to be one-upped when Federal Agent Mason Cunningham arrives on the scene. But with the disappearance of a scientist from a government lab, she’s trading her local insight for his deep connections to solve both cases. Lots of in-house excitement for this debut from former corporate lawyer and college professor Johns.”–LJ, Pre-Pub Alert
