POISON by Galt Niederhoffer
“An award-winning filmmaker and novelist (she directed the film version of her own work, The Romantics), Niederhoffer typically investigates families under stress. Here, Abigail and Benjamin Borden look to have the perfect marriage, but small lies and shifty denials create tension that escalates into veritable menace. The publicist describes this psychological thriller as ‘stay-up-all-night-to-finish good,’ so be prepared.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert

Thriller Thursday (11/3/16 Edition)

Fall weather is here! Curl up on the couch with a hot drink and one of these excellent mysteries & thrillers:

INHERIT THE BONES by Emily Littlejohn
A Library Journal Fall/Winter Debut Novel Pick! In librarian Emily Littlejohn’s accomplished and poignant debut, police officer Gemma Monroe identifies a murdered clown in a visiting circus as the mayor’s son, presumed dead for the last three years. Six-months pregnant, with a partner she can’t trust and colleagues who know more than they’re saying, Gemma must track a killer who will stop at nothing to keep those secrets buried. “Debut novelist Littlejohn writes with assurance and skill. The story’s plotting is sure-footed, and the characters are well developed and believable. Highly recommended for fans of Susan Dunlap and Tricia Fields.” — Library Journal, starred review & October pick of the month

THE INHERITANCE by Charles Finch
“In the 10th installment of this Victorian-era series, a Member of Parliament–turned–private detective gets the chance to solve a 30-year-old mystery that involves his boyhood friend. Finch impressively raises the stakes of this tale between tea settings, and his character development is top-notch.” — Kirkus Reviews

ASH ISLAND by Barry Maitland
In the second book in a new series from LibraryReads author Maitland, Australian Detective Sergeant Harry Belltree attempts to leave his past behind. His quiet new life is shattered when unfinished business finds him. “This is a worthy contribution to the growing body of Australian hard-boiled fiction.” — Booklist

SAY NO MORE by Hank Phillippi Ryan
In Ryan’s latest Jane Ryland & Jake Brogan thriller, the couple (now semi-secretly engaged and beginning to reveal their relationship to the world) are both on a quest for answers as they try to balance the consequences of the truth. Jane’s just convinced a date rape victim to go public about her assault on camera, but a disturbing anonymous message—SAY NO MORE—has Jane really and truly scared. Meanwhile, Jake is on the hunt for the person who murdered a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter. “The tension mounts as the action builds to a conclusion that thrills and gratifies.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove

LJ’s Fall/Winter Debut Novel Picks

Library Journal recently announced the debut novels they’re most looking forward to this Fall 2016 and Winter 2017, including these four Macmillan titles:

THE GUINEVERES by Sarah Domet
All coincidentally named Guinevere, four young women bond tightly when they are abandoned by their various parents to be raised by nuns at the Sisters of the Supreme Adoration. But will those bonds hold when four comatose soldiers are brought to the convent? “An unsettling, melancholy first novel whose tone echoes that of Jeffrey Eugenides’s THE VIRGIN SUICIDES. This phenomenal, character-driven story is mesmerizing.” (LJ 8/16)

SUN, SAND, MURDER by John Keyse-Walker
Winner of the 2015 Minotaur Books/Mystery Writers of America First Crime Novel Award, this debut features Special Constable Teddy Creque, Royal Virgin Islands Police Force, who keeps the peace on his tiny island home of Anegada. The murder of Boston University herpetologist Paul Kelliher turns the entire island upside down. “A beautiful Caribbean setting, vibrant characters, lively plotting and pacing, and a memorable villain who will surprise you.” (LJ 8/16) readmoreremove

TO CAPTURE WHAT WE CANNOT KEEP by Beatrice Colin
Set against the construction of the Eiffel Tower, this novel charts the relationship between a young widow and an engineer who, despite constraints of class and wealth, fall in love. “Hauntingly melancholic in places, Colin’s story moves like wisps of fog through Parisian streets, capturing moments of both gaiety and tragedy. This exquisitely written, shadowy historical novel will appeal to a wide variety of readers, including fans of the Belle Époque.” — Library Journal, starred review

NetGalleyLogoAvailable on NetGalley. To be pre-approved for an e-galley, please email library@macmillanusa.com with the subject “To Capture What We Cannot Keep.”*

THIS HOUSE IS MINE by Dörte Hansen
A bestseller in Germany, Hansen’s debut novel is about two strong-willed and very different women who have a connection around a special old house: Vera, a refugee who arrived from East Prussia in 1945, and her niece Anne, who shows up at the house 60 years later with her small son. “Hansen makes this story about the process of healing affecting, real, and memorable.” — Publishers Weekly

NORMAL by Warren Ellis
In this provocative near-future techno-thriller, a foresight strategist (a.k.a.: people who think about geoengineering and smart cities and ways to evade Our Coming Doom) arrives at Normal Head in the wilds of Oregon to unplug and recover, when a patient goes missing from his locked bedroom, leaving nothing but a pile of insects in his wake. “A crackling, funny, and frightening horror story from a unique voice in genre lit.” — Kirkus Reviews

UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN by Keigo Higashino
Two starred reviews! From acclaimed international bestseller and LibraryReads author Higashino comes a compelling story of a twenty-year-old murder, two teenagers linked by the crime, and a detective’s obsession to finally uncover the truth. “Edgar-nominated Higashino revisits the dangerous codependence of bonds forged in murder with this complex, elegant psychological thriller. A starkly rendered portrayal of modern Japanese culture that will draw fans of fellow Japanese thriller master Natsuo Kirino’s novels and the haunting Scandinavian tales of Karin Fossum.” — Booklist, starred review
