Thriller Thursday – Stars Edition

We’ve got an all-STAR line-up for this #ThrillerThursday, but first Edgar Awards news: THE STRANGER YOU KNOW by Jane Casey won the Mary Higgins Clark award! Click here to see the full list of 2015 Edgar Award winners. Now, on to the books!

SIGNAL by Patrick Lee (THREE stars!)
“Two books into this series, and it’s clear that Lee has hit the jackpot. Expect the horde of out-of-breath readers gasping to keep up with Lee’s breakneck pace to keep growing exponentially with each new appearance of Sam Dryden.” Booklist, starred review

“Lee’s thriller featuring a loner hero compares to Lee Child’s ‘Jack Reacher’ series but with the added kick of technology. Readers will wait with bated breath for the next Dryden adventure.” Library Journal, starred review

“A credible hero and a plot filled with nonstop cinematic action will leave thriller fans eager for the next installment.” Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review

BADLANDS by C.J. Box (THREE stars!)
“Although he’s placed kids in danger in other books, this could be the most effective of his thrillers since his Edgar-winning BLUE HEAVEN. The temperature on the northern plains may fall to 40 below, but the engine of this thriller races red hot, providing plenty of warmth to keep readers going all night.” Booklist, starred review

“Suspenseful—you can’t put it down.” Library Journal, starred review

“[A] superior thriller…” Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE PRECIPICE by Paul Doiron
“Doiron brings his gift for making the Maine woods live and breathe to a taut whodunit in his stellar sixth novel featuring game warden Mike Bowditch. Multidimensional characters and a high level of suspense help make this a winner.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This is one of the finest entries in a uniformly strong series that has quietly taken its place among the very best outdoors-based crime dramas.” Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
