Happy #ThrillerThursday to new, mysteries, thrillers & true crime!
A SINGLE SPY by William Christie
Two starred reviews! During WWII, young Russian spy with divided loyalties, under deep cover in Nazi Germany, uncovers an assassination plot that could change the course of history. “With detailed historical events, compelling characters, and plenty of heart-grabbing moments, this novel is intensely engaging from the first page. Alexsi is complex and fully drawn; this is a spy who gains the reader’s trust while never showing his hand. Christie’s fabulous novel of historical espionage will appeal to both World War II fiction buffs and spy novel/thriller aficionados. Extremely well done.” — Library Journal, starred & boxed review
INCENDIARY: The Psychiatrist, the Mad Bomber, and the Invention of Criminal Profiling by Michael Cannell
Long before the specter of terrorism haunted the public imagination, a serial bomber stalked 1950s New York. The race to catch him would give birth to a new science called criminal profiling. You can also follow the “Mad Bomber” throughout NYC in this interactive map! “A fascinating study not just of a historical crime and its consequences, but also its unintended effects.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
COLD EARTH by Ann Cleeves
Read a Q&A with Ann Cleeves about COLD EARTH! “The ground shifts in more ways than one for Det. Insp. Jimmy Perez in CWA Diamond Dagger–winner Cleeves’s moody seventh Shetland mystery. The stark Shetland landscape provides an atmospheric backdrop for Cleeves’s complex, relatable characters, especially Perez, a kind man dealing with his own tragic past.” — Publishers Weekly readmoreremove

Top 10 SF/Fantasy: 2015 (full list)
CALIFORNIA BONES by Greg Van Eekhout
This fantasy-adventure is structured like a caper novel, and fans of stories about heists will enjoy it, but it’s an absolute must for urban-fantasy readers.
Top 10 Horror: 2015 (full list)
FALL OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry
Picking up at the very moment DEAD OF NIGHT ended, this sequel throws the reader headlong into a zombie plague. Maberry, no slouch at action and suspense, does some of his most visceral and terrifying writing ever here.
THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS by Adam Neville
From the opening line’s echo of Manderley (“As if by a dream Catherine came to the Red House”), readers will find themselves in the sickly sweet, rotted-silk grip of a decaying gothic nightmare. A haunted-house tale like no other, this is one of those rare horror novels that’s upsetting enough to make the reader want to take the damn thing out back and bury it.
LOCK IN by John Scalzi
An August 2014 LibraryReads pick! This tightly plotted, highly imaginative tale takes place about 25 years after a virus called Haden’s syndrome left a small percentage of the world’s population locked inside their own bodies, conscious but unable to interact in any way. A genre-blending triumph that combines horror, mystery, and science fiction. readmoreremove
Happy #ThrillerThursday! We’ve got two terrific mysteries AND great news about CWA Dagger Award nominations!
FALL OF NIGHT by Jonathan Maberry
“Maberry does some of his best writing in this sequel to 2011’s DEAD OF NIGHT. Maberry, no slouch when it comes to action and suspense, seems to have found new energy here, as though he’s been jump-started by the story he’s telling. He still has a lot of books ahead of him, so calling this his masterpiece would be premature, but a case could be made that this is the best—and most terrifying—book he’s written so far.” — Booklist, starred review
DE POTTER’S GRAND TOUR by Joanna Scott
In 1905, a tourist agent and amateur antiques collector named Armand de Potter mysteriously disappeared off the coast of Greece. When his wife is left to piece together his life, she realizes that everything was not as it seemed. “Ardently researched and sporting historic de Potter photographs, this smart, brisk, witty, and provocative novel is alight with vivid descriptions of the de Potters’ travels, and electric with Agatha Christie–like suspense.” — Booklist
Two Macmillan mysteries were shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association Dagger awards!
